SANTONIO HOLMES:

He has been injured for a good part of the preseason as we know, but the difference in Holmes is something to be excited about. He is finally filling the role that he should have last season, acting like a captain. He has taken his younger teammates under his wing, and they have done nothing but rave about Santonio for it. These guys have had their learning curves made far easier thanks to Santonio Holmes.

As far as his own attitude, Santonio is talking about the team, rather than worrying about how often he gets the football. He talks about how the offense can be good if they put in the workload. He is not making comments to divide the team, not causing tension in the locker room. He seems to be returning to the 2010 version of Santonio Holmes. This will translate into improved play on the football field.

MARK SANCHEZ:

Mark Sanchez has a lot of doubters in the league, both locally and around the country. Despite his past successes, his play did go backwards as far as his decision making in 2011, and many wonder if he can take the team where it needs to go.

Look at how he performed in the preseason, and it tells you all you need to know about Mark Sanchez’s readiness to take the next step. Everyone worried about his accuracy, and he threw for a 68.6% completion percentage. Although he couldn’t get the ball down the field much, that will come with the running game improving. He only threw one bad interception during the preseason, as the second one was on a tipped ball. His ball has more zip, and he has been much more accurate. Mark Sanchez will play well.
