No surprise. But very nice press.
I pride myself on my consistency,” Holt said. “It’s the same every year. Some guys it’s hot, warm, and then cold. Or it’s hot, lukewarm, cold and then hot again. For me, I like it to be about consistency. The other way makes no sense to me.”
The way he works makes that possible. During a training camp practice at Rams Park on Monday, he ran all of his routes hard, even the early drills that some veteran receivers might take as an easy time. When he ran a go route during an 11-on-11 drill, he was bumped off his route by the defender.
“That’s pass interference,” he screamed at a coach standing nearby. “That’s pass interference.”
What did it really matter? Yet here was one of the game’s best receivers, on a hot, sticky day in August in his eighth season, acting like a meaningless play in a practice was as important as a third-down pass play in a playoff game.
That’s Holt. He cares.
