They had their problems in 2011, blown out of proportion or not. They worked on their relationship during the offseason, and whether or not they are best friends, they seemed to be ready to go.

Santonio Holmes has taken on a leadership role thus far in the offseason, teaching up his fellow wide receivers. All of this is great. But, there is one major issue.

He hasn’t been able to get out on the field. Santonio hurt his ribs in the Green and White game up in Cortland, and hasn’t seen the field yet in the preseason. Finally, Holmes will take the field tomorrow night against the Carolina Panthers. The Jets will be extremely cautious with him, likely limiting his plays.

Coach Ryan has also announced that the starters will not play at all during the fourth preseason game on Thursday. What that does, is makes tomorrow night’s game even more important. Why? Timing. Mark and Santonio better start getting their timing down tomorrow night. Don’t diminish its importance.
