The NFL opened a pop up store in Manhattan this afternoon, and Jets owner Woody Johnson was on hand for the festivities. I mean, of course he was, why wouldn’t he be? It’s a chance for him to be in the room while jerseys are sold, of course he would be there. This is what rules Woody Johnson.

And this is all that rules Woody Johnson. This was clearly evidenced today when he talked to the Daily News about Santonio Holmes. In listening to Mr. Johnson’s answers, he clearly doesn’t get his football team.

“I know he is a strong supporter of our quarterback, definitely,” Johnson said.

He is??? Really? That’s news to me, as I am sure it is for all of you too.

Was Woody absent last season? Did he forget? Maybe he was too busy selling shampoo and baby lotion to realize what was going on with the football team.

Forgetting all of that, let’s look at what he has actually said recently.

“He didn’t really care (about the trade),” said one player who trains with Holmes in Orlando. “ ‘Tone’ just wants the ball.”

That sounds supportive, doesn’t it?

“He said it’s all on Sanchez this time,” the player said. “If Sanchez trips (up), then he’ll be on the bench going, ‘Tebow! Tebow!’ like everyone else.”

That sounds like a lot of love for Mark Sanchez, doesn’t it? I guess Woody missed this.

According to Tom Shaw, Holmes’ personal coach, Santonio likes Mark, but with a caveat.

“He wants Sanchez to be successful,” Shaw said. “He’s never told me that this guy sucks. The one thing about Sanchez is that he doesn’t want to make mistakes. And that’s what Santonio says. Ben Roethlisberger would just let the ball go. He doesn’t care if (Holmes) is triple covered. If Ben thought Santonio could make a play for him, he’s shooting it in there. The more experience Sanchez gets, the more chances he’ll take. Then you’ll start seeing more balls to Santonio.”

Ok, Woody, so he likes Mark Sanchez, and wants him to be successful. But by success, that means throwing the ball more to him.

Obviously, Santonio Holmes supports one person. Santonio Holmes.

He doesn’t support his quarterback, he supports his statistics. The fact that Woody Johnson thinks that he does, clearly shows that he absolutely has no clue.

Woody has no clue, period. And it’s getting tired.
