Torry = Anti-TO

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.

    like the post. i am a big holt fan, he is a great reciever who will be one of the best when it is all said and done. his work ethic reminds me of jerry rice, and hopefully Torry’s career will have the longevity and impact that Jerry’s did! I remember standing on the grass hill of C-F Stadium holidng a sign that read “HOLT 4 HEISMAN!”

    Torry was the guy who recovered the onside kick in the improbable comeback against the Texans last year. He just out worked the Texans “hands” team. My 10 year old, in his Torry Holt jersey, was beside himself. As a Texans fan, I’ve had to listen to the trash talk for a whole year. At least it was Torry that made the play.

    I wonder if Torry Holt is at practice today? I didn’t read the article, don’t care, but apparently TO ain’t. He couldn’t be in a better place a far as I’m concerned. Let’s see how the coach and owner handle the malcontent they invited into their fold.
