Holmes and Sanchez are having a communication breakdown

Well this is an interesting theory…

Speaking to the Media yesterday, New York Jets “Captain” Santonio Holmes said that whatever comments he has made over the past two weeks are justified because being a captain allows him to speak that way.

“If coach put a ‘C’ on my chest, everybody should listen to what I have to  say whether it’s good or bad and let’s build from it,” Holmes said. “Let’s not  take it out and say, ‘OK, we’re going to trash this person for saying something  bad about the team in the media.’ ”

As for Holmes’ relationship with the team since the comments, especially QB Mark Sanchez, the QB says that those comments won’t happen again.

“I think our player policy is to just kind of keep things in house,” Sanchez  said. “That kind of stuff won’t happen.

“Moving forward, that won’t happen. We’ve talked about it. Those individual  improvements and stuff that happens on a personal level. . . . That kind of  stuff doesn’t go past this locker room.”

Asked if he spoke with Holmes, Sanchez said, “Within this locker room we talk about stuff like that. That’s about as far as  I’m going to go on that.”

For his part, Holmes said no teammates said anything to him about what he said.

The drama continues…
