He may be misguided in his support, but at least New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes is sticking to his guns despite the team stating that their will be a definite offseason quarterback competition for the teams' starter.
When asked who will be the starter come September, Holmes replied, "right now Sanchez,” he said during Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network, “and that’s who we’re going with and we’re going to continue this road until time permits.”
“I love this guy and his attitude and beliefs about winning ball games and what it takes and bringing the right people around,” Holmes said. “He’s a young head coach whose been given an opportunity regardless of how many years as a defensive coordinator or just as a coach. Learning as time progresses for him and he’s building his team the way he wants it built. [Owner] Woody Johnson gave him an opportunity to be himself and I think select his own group of guys and being in a position he wants to be in, I think its all working out for the best for him.”
