Instead of taking their customary verbal shots at the New England Patriots, the New York Jets spent Wednesday trying to clean up a festering controversy in their own locker room. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes touched an internal nerve by calling out quarterback Mark Sanchez and the offensive line after Sunday night's 34-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The damage control began Monday on the practice field, where Sanchez gathered the entire offense and delivered an impassioned speech that emphasized team unity, has learned. Sanchez admitted Wednesday that Holmes' comments were addressed among the players. Clearly, Sanchez was uncomfortable discussing the matter with reporters, but he left little doubt that the remarks didn't sit well. "Our player policy is to keep things in-house. That kind of stuff won't happen again," said the Jets quarterback, adding, "We talked about it. ... Within our locker room, we talk about stuff like that. That's as far as I'm going to go with that."
