Jets Santonio Holmes rips Giants secondary

By Marc A. Greenberg

If trash-talking helped you in the standings, the New York Jets would have clinched their division by now.

The latest installment of the Jets vs. New York Giants continued on Wednesday as Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes spoke to reporters about the Giants secondary.

“They’ve given up big plays,” Holmes said of the Giants. “They’re  poor-tackling guys. We know plays can be made over their head. We’ve just got to  be willing to take advantage of them and make them count.”

Holmes, who will be matched up against Corey Webster did not sound impressed.

“I can’t wait to see him Saturday,” he said. “I hope he’s ready to bring his  ‘A’ game.”

As to comments that Webster was having a good year, Holmes said, “I could care less.”

“They depend on their front four to get in and get pressure on the  quarterback,” he said. “A smart-enough defender knows he has a few seconds in  his play clock that the ball should be released and, if not, he’s depending on  his guys to take care of business. I think those guys just fall victim to that a  lot of times.”

To Holmes defense, the Giants rank 29th in the NFL against the pass, allowing 257.5 yards per  game.  But there’s no doubt, the Giants will use Holmes words as extra motivation;  If that’s even needed at this point.
