Jets receiver Santonio Holmes knows all about getting bad press. Mainly because he has a penchant for doing things that causes the media to write negative things about him.
For example, remember just last season when he supposedly quit on the Jets in the final two minutes of their season-ending game? Holmes apparently even got into a shouting match with teammate Wayne Hunter during the game.
But despite all the things he does to bring negative attention to the Jets, Holmes believes that the New York media should turn a blind eye to it all. In fact, Holmes believes that the New York media should only write positive things about the Jets. Well, that is if the media want to be part of the team, of course.
“If you guys want to be, and this is for the New York media, if you guys want to be a part of our team and want to feel so important, be there to support us, not to try to break us down,” New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes told the NFL.com’s own Dave Dameshek Football Program.
