My first reaction was….
My second reaction was that Santonio is getting leadership advice from someone who once described himself as THE SUN and a teammate as a FLASHLIGHT. Let that sink in for a minute.
This isn’t going to end well.
Santonio Holmes received a mini-sermon on leadership Friday from Keyshawn Johnson, who once wrote a book entitled, “Just Give Me the Damn Ball.”
“It was a big brother-to-little brother talk,” Holmes said. “He was just teaching me to be cordial to everybody and to understand what gift I have to this football team and learning how to utilize it.”
“I love the guy,” he said of Ryan. “He brought me here to be a leader and to be a guy that’s going to play football and be aggressive for this football team. His jokes are his jokes. I don’t put anything past what Coach says, because it’s all fun and games with him.”

TOUGH CROWD, TOUGH CROWD
Tim Tebow's first public practice for the Jets didn't go so well. It was so bad that several fans got in some verbal jabs on the backup QB.
New York Jets players reported for training camp yesterday, marking the official start of training camp at SUNY Cortland. The most important sighting was Darrelle Revis. It was reported last week that he would show up on time and he did, which makes Jets training camp a much happier place right now. Then LaRon Landry was activated off the PUP List, and Jets training camp is really...
It appears that one reporter had Tim Tebow on the brain during a New York Jets Q&A session at the New York Jets training camp.
Watch as she calls Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, "Tim":
It's nice that Mark laughed it off since I'm pretty sure that he is seething inside from that.
The New York Jets are always trying something new. Whether it’s using a guy like Tim Tebow in special packages, or using the Former Jet Brad Smith in a variety of ways, they have a trick to doing things.
A big topic of Jets football thusfar has been lack of depth at RB and WR. They haven’t focused too much on bringing in players at either position, but today Jets coach Rex Ryan...
Whenever news regarding Darrelle Revis pops up, it’s automatically assumed to be contract-related. That was not the case on Sunday — or so he says.
Per the NY Daily News, the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback sat out part of today’s full-contact practice with what he described as “a little tightness” in his right hamstring.
Revis, who admitted he was “close” to holding out...
Considering all the media attention the Jets garner, one would think they were the team from New York that just won the Super Bowl last year.
However, this is New York and the city that never sleeps always loves a juicy story to pounce on. Whether the Jets are anything more than an amusing sideshow worthy of nothing more than back page covers remains to be seen.
He may have lost a hundred pounds but he’s still the same Rex
Perhaps no team comes into the 2012-13 season with more questions than the New York Jets. After collapsing at the end of last season they knew they had many issues to address. They had fighting between the players, a quarterback that had taken a big step back in his third year, an offensive line that couldn’t...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will begin to see the craziness that comes with Tim Tebow on the team as training camp progresses. He got a taste of it when a reporter not knowing who he was talking to yelled out "Tim" to get his attention. Check out the video below from DeadSpin.com.
Sanchez handled it well.
Hot News for CB Antonio Cromartie
A reporter at Jets camp referred to Mark Sanchez as “Tim” during a Q&A session, which is either inexcusably stupid or inspired trolling. C’mon, they’re entirely different shades of terrible quarterback. It has to be trolling. In which case, I guess I’m just disappointed that Ines Sainz couldn’t have been the one to do it. If we’re gonna make this a media narrative...
He isn't according to Jets DB and I don't mean defensive back, Antonio Cromartie. Cromartie was asked if he agreed with Rex Ryan's assertion that he, Rex, was the best defensive coach in the game, better than Bill Belichick and the Steelers' Dick LeBeau. Cromartie told Newsday:
"I mean, it's him and Dick LeBeau. Rex is first on the list and LeBeau'...
32 NFL teams are currently going through the rigors of training camp, but you wouldn’t know it with the amount of coverage the Jets are getting. Be that as it may, Mark Sanchez made his rounds with the media on Monday, touching on the recent comments made by Santonio Holmes.
As a refresher, Holmes vehemently stated that a two-quarterback system of Sanchez and Tim Tebow would not...
