Sunday afternoon, the Jets return to the place that put a troubling end to the 2011 season, Miami, Florida. We all remember how it ended week 17, no need to rehash. We all weren’t too happy with the performance, or attitude, of Santonio Holmes.
The trip to Pittsburgh didn’t turn out the way Santonio Holmes intended it either, as he recorded 2 catches on the first drive including a TD, and then one catch for the rest of the game. He spent most of the rest of Sunday afternoon dropping passes, and trying to get pass interference calls.
The part we don’t see is Holmes’ work ethic in practice. At Mark Sanchez’s press conference, he talked about how determined Santonio was to get right back at it on Monday:
“The best part about it has been the way we’ve both responded. I really commend him on his attitude and the work ethic he showed today in practice. He wanted to see some of those looks againl, he was talking about them immediately on Monday. It’s easy for someone to shy away from something like that and not bring it up until I bring it up. He was right there on Monday — ‘Hey, let’s talk. Let’s watch this. Look what I see. What did you see? Let’s get on the same page.’ That’s the most encouraging thing.
