Hit 1: Santonio Holmes’ NFLN Total Access Comments taken out of Context?
I believe the media LOVE to make up a story and controversey when it really isn’t there. Holmes was on NFL’s Total Access and was asked about if the 2-QB system can work. He said NO. I agree. Here is USA Today’s article and their take:
“No,” Jets lightning rod WR Santonio Holmes said Monday night on NFL Network’s NFL Total Access. “I don’t think so because you have to allow one quarterback to get into the rhythm of a game, and it starts from the preparation in practice. Knowing the first couple of plays that he’s going to take these reps, it’s getting the feel for coming onto the field with the crowd awaiting you, it’s the making the mistakes early in the game to finishing the games at the end. You don’t just change a guy out just because he has a few mistakes early into a game. So I think coming into this season, that we have a lot to expect from Sanchez.
“Tebow is going to have plays where he comes in and plays. … I’m pretty sure he’s going to get them done, and he’s going to do his job just as well as any other quarterback would when they get an opportunity to get on the field.”
Backtracking? Hedging? Seems so.
I watched the complete interview and I’m telling you right now that the way the media is portraying him about answering the 2-QB system is comical. Who wants to bet they didn’t watch the interview. I actually am defending Santonio and saying that his interview was professional and I agree with him on the 2-QB system. It doesn’t work.
Check out my podcast from this morning where I go into detail about it:
