Hey Holmes.

Postby Guttpuppy » Thu May 15, 2003 12:00 pm

Lions new LB Earl Holmes.

Q: How was it to start your career in 1996 with the Steelers?
A: That's probably the best foundation any player can come under. They lost in the Super Bowl the year before to Dallas. There was a lot of leadership there -- Rod Woodson, Greg Lloyd, Chad Brown. Coach (Bill) Cowher and those guys -- it was the best thing for me, just teaching me the game, understanding the game. I learned so much.

Q: Pittsburgh's like a family operation, starting with the owner, Dan Rooney, isn't it?
A: You're family. When you wear that black and gold, it means something. It's like the American team, Dallas and Pittsburgh, because of all the Super Bowls. They taught me how to be a professional.

Q: Do you regret signing with Cleveland as a free agent in 2002?
A: I thought long and hard about it. I even spoke with some guys from Pittsburgh. I spoke with Coach Cowher. Honestly, looking back at it now, I do (regret leaving Pittsburgh).

Q: Would you have preferred to be a Steeler for life?
A: Yes, because of certain people. Because of Coach Cowher. The relationship I had with Jerome Bettis and those guys. Don't take anything away from Cleveland or here. Just, when you've been somewhere for so long, you know everybody in the administration, you know everything about everybody. It becomes family.
