New York Jets, wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, played 45 snaps on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and caught one ball for 13 yards.  As Curtis Crabtree of NBCSports reports, Holmes, who played in his first game since suffering a Lisfranc injury, feels he could have played more.As I wrote in my previous articles on Holmes, I cannot figure this cat out.  Holmes spent the entire training camp and preseason marginalizing his progress and continually downplayed his ability to play while the Jets continued to put out in the media that Holmes was cleared for takeoff.  The Jets would say one thing and Holmes would counter with the complete opposite.  This case of “he said,” “he said,” is more annoying than spilling your last pint of Guinness on your wife’s brand new white sheepskin rug.  After Sunday’s game, Holmes claimed he was “frustrated,” he did not play more.  In addition, he driveled and drabbed about it being “go time.”  This guy has constructed more alternate realities than George Costanza.  Two weeks ago, he was in the land of Honalee, unsure when he would play.  Now he wants to play the whole game.  To bring Holmes back to the real world, let me tell you what he is really trying to say.  Holmes does not want to play more; he wants more catches, more yards.  Holmes does not want to play 45 snaps with one reception.  That is his worst reality.  He would take 25 snaps with 10 receptions for a 120 yards and a touchdown all day.  Tell me I am wrong.  If Holmes ever decided to stop with the BS and play all out like Wes Welker, Holmes could be one of the best WRs in the NFL.  Tell me I am wrong about that too.I look for Holmes to have more than one catch against the Patriots Thursday night and he needs to if the Jets have even a vapor trail hope of being competitive.  Then again, he might drift away with little Jackie Paper and get one reception in the pre-autumn mist of the New England night.     You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
