Santonio Holmes Says Two-Quarterback System Won’t Work With Jets
The Jets will be an interesting team to keep an eye on this season. If their season gets off to a shaky start I see the wheels falling off.
It isn’t Tebow’s fault that he is a megastar for off the field reasons, but the Jets are going to try to carry out something that has proven not to work in the NFL.
Santonio Holmes shares his thoughts on the Two Quarterback system..
Andrew Siciliano whether a two-quarterback system can work in the NFL, Holmes answered, “No.”
“I don’t think so,” Holmes continued. “Because you have to allow one quarterback to get in the rhythm of a game. And it starts from the preparation of practice.
Holmes said Sanchez needs to know he’s the man, and it would be bad for Sanchez’s development as a player to put him in a position where he’s looking over his shoulder and wondering whether he’s going to get benched in favor of Tebow if he throws an interception.
“Making mistakes early in the game to finishing the game at the end, you don’t change a guy out just because he has a few mistakes early in a game,” Holmes said. “So I think coming into the season we have a lot to expect from Sanchez.”
Even though Holmes hasn’t been the model teammate over the years, he is absolutely correct with his assessment. The Jets need to either ride or die with Sanchez or Tebow.
It won’t work with both.
