New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes wants the New York media to be more supportive of the team (Credit: AP Photo/Julio Cortez)

During an appearance on an NFL.com podcast with Dave Damesheck, Santonio Holmes commented on his current relationship with Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

“One day you have a fight the next day you make up,” Holmes said.

He also took some time to offer an interesting bit of advice to the New York media.

“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,” Holmes said. “Because [there’s] not one day that we all step in that locker room and we try to break each other down, that we talk bad about the way that person played because it affects the team the way one person plays if they don’t play to perfection.

“If the New York media wants to be a part of our team and wants to continue writing about us, write positive things, stay away from the negative because it doesn’t do anything good for our team that you want to report all the negative things that happen and that’s all you want to talk to us players about. We live for one thing and that’s to play football and not to entertain you people in the media.”

Holmes seems to be in the wrong city and most likely the wrong sport, if he expects the media to baby the New York Jets.

He may be bluffing, but Ryan has made it clear that opponents should be ready for a dose of both Mark...
