Santonio Holmes Has Mini Meltdown in Practice Because He Was Being Pushed “Too Hard”
Without a doubt Santonio Holmes has been a clutch receiver in his NFL career, but those “clutch stats” doesn’t make you a #1 receiver in the NFL.
Holmes think he is a #1, but acts and plays like a #2 and that will always be a problem.
Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Holmes was “disgusted” and “bothered” today when he felt that the Jets’ coaches were working him too hard, that Holmes “staged a mini-meltdown” and that he “exchanged words with receivers coach Sanjay Lal.”
After the practice session, Holmes confirmed that he thought the coaches were asking too much of him and that he wanted to ease back into things after missing much of the Jets’ voluntary offseason work while visiting an Air Force base in Germany.
“I was talking to the coach, letting him understand it was too many reps today,” Holmes said. “I’ve been gone for a while, so I can’t be at full tempo like the rest of the guys and where they want us to be at.”
It was nice Holmes was over in Germany visiting the Troops, I guess they don’t have gyms there.
There is a proper way to tell a coach how your body is feeling, I am going out on a limb and say Holmes didn’t go that route.
