Santonio Holmes has done a lot of things to get us angry. 2011, especially the end of it, is all the evidence we need for that. Holmes was selfish, and frankly, acted like a small child. He gave everyone reason, including his teammates, to get annoyed with him. I was ready to lead the charge. I had a personalized shirt made with “Tone Time” on the back, and by the end of 2011, I wanted to burn it.

But it is time to stop holding this against Holmes. He has behaved very well the past few months, and from all accounts at Jets camp, has been a model teammate. He has been running hard, and doing his best to coach up his teammates.

Everything he has done so far has been scrutinized, to an obsurd level. He missed OTAs because he was in Germany visiting with troops. It seemed as if he almost got attitude for doing that. Some of his comments prior to camp activities were questionable, I’ll give you that. But that has been all. He is being scrutinized to an obsurd level.

Especially yesterday.
