    Stonio Again!!

    http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/artic ... ts/9066196

    Running back LaDainian Tomlinson said the $45 million receiver displayed a demeanor “throughout the game” that didn’t sit well with the rest of his offensive cohorts, and “they said something to him about it.”

    That triggered a shouting match between Holmes and right tackle Wayne Hunter, which led to Holmes’ benching and subsequent criticism from teammates.

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter learned, via a team source, that Holmes has “developed a reputation in the locker room for not working hard during the week.”

    The source, a player that chose to remain nameless, also proclaimed that Holmes “quit” on the Jets, who were officially eliminated from playoff contention, ending a disappointing season that once again began with championship expectations.

    Stonio will have lots of time now for "not working hard during the week", and can "chill" extra easy.

    Is Santonio still on this team? That's what I thought. You need to be more worried about Benio then Santonio....

    Jets teammate on Holmes: “He quit”

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 1, 2012



    There were a lot of ugly moments during the Jets’ meltdown in Miami Sunday, but one stood above the rest.

    Santonio Holmes, after barking at a teammate in the huddle, was pulled from the game late in the fourth quarter. He sat on the bench with his helmet off, not even paying attention as his team’s season ended.

    After the game, one unnamed Jets teammate said Holmes “quit” on the team. And it didn’t start this week.

    “He quit,” the player told Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s happened for the past two to three weeks. It’s happened all season.”

    Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer apparently made the call to take Holmes out.

    “I looked out there, and I was wondering why he wasn’t out there myself,” coach Rex Ryan said. “I didn’t bench Santonio. You’ll have to ask him.”

    It looks like Ryan is in self-preservation mode, trying to maintain his relationship with Holmes. Multiple players told Vrentas that Holmes “moped” throughout the game and often ignored Mark Sanchez. One player already told Holmes to get off the field if he wasn’t going to help the team.

    “I’ll tell you what, it’s tough for guys to follow a captain that kind of behaves in that manner,” LaDainian Tomlinson said. “When you’re a captain, guys are looking at you, you’ve got to lead by example. You’ve got to play your tail off until the last play. And when that don’t happen, you have guys looking at you in a way that captains shouldn’t be looked at.”

    Tomlinson said that guys were unhappy with Holmes’ demeanor. That demeanor didn’t improve much after the game.

    Holmes made it clear he wasn’t happy with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, saying it wasn’t his decision if Schottenheimer returned.

    Holmes was then asked about his future with the team.

    “Thank you guys,” Holmes said before abruptly ending his press conference.

    It’s going to be fun offseason in New York.

    That's definitely not how you be great.

    Santonio Holmes,quit the player told Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s happened for the past two to three weeks. It’s happened all season.”

    Good use of a 5th round pick if you ask me

    I'm just glad those windbags lost. I don't care for the brash coaches like the Jets coach, Ravens and Niner coaches. That kind of coaching only goes so far and eventually those teams implode.
    I love when egos like Ryans hit the wall of defeat.
