New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes is again blaming the offensive line for the Jets offensive struggles.
“I may be criticized again for saying it, but I think it starts up front, and the big guys know it,” Holmes said. “If they give Mark enough time to sit in the pocket and complete passes, I think everything changes. The routes that are being ran are short routes, ‘Hey, let’s get the ball out of Mark’s hands quick, let’s move the ball down the field, let’s go from there.’
“But if you can’t protect the quarterback for four or five seconds, then there’s no point of dropping back 7 yards to throw a football when we don’t have enough time. So we pretty much have to roll with the way our offense is right now.”
