A lot has been said about Santonio Holmes, his attitude, and his play. Santonio has done a lot, in the past, to show himself as a selfish player. Well, maybe that is starting to change.

Santonio spoke to the media yesterday, and spoke about Mark Sanchez, and his faith in him. He actually helped Mark get through the initial shock of the Tim Tebow trade. Here is what he had to say about it:

I think having the conversation that he and I had the day it happened, when I got back from Africa. He talked to me and I basically told him that this is his team, you’re the starting quarterback, Tebow is here to help. From the words that came from Coach Ryan, he told me that Tebow’s going to help us keep the drives going, keep the ball, score touchdowns, and win ball games. Those were the exact words I gave to Mark, to give him that sense of security that he’s our starting quarterback and that Tebow is here to help us win as many games as he can.

This sure doesn’t sound like the same guy that was fighting in the huddle at the end of week 17 last year.
