The drama caused by Jets WR Santonio Holmes‘s performance on Sunday has been a dominate headline throughout the week but the as we’ve already mentioned, the Jets have very little options when it comes to Holmes.
Mark Sanchez, appearing on the “Michael Kay Show” on ESPN 1050 Radio, seemed to be optimistic that he and Holmes will be able to work things out next season.
“Anytime I get discouraged about it, I just flip on his highlight tape, the first year he came to us, after missing the first four games, and how much production he had,” said Sanchez. “It’s in there. I know that ability is in there.”
“We’re going to make things work,” Sanchez noted. “I’m the quarterback of the New York Jets and it’s my job to do my very best with all the players we have and to get the best out of everybody. It’ll be a good challenge for me, but I’m excited about it.”
Sanchez has been good at saying the right things but the pressure that will be on him next season will more than at any point in his career. We already posted that there’s an outside chance that the Jets may consider Peyton Manning if he becomes available so next season is shaping up to be a make or break season for the “Sanchize.”
