Jets can’t force it to Holmes Dan Leberfeld

The Jets get Santonio Holmes back from his four game suspension this week.

Actually, it’s hard to say they get him back because he’s never played a regular season game for them.

However you want to phrase it, Holmes will be on the field for Gang Green on Monday night against Minnesota.

But Rex Ryan doesn’t want Mark Sanchez forcing the ball to his newest weapon.

“To add a terrific player like Santonio to what we already have, like you said, ournoffense has really been rolling, it’s good,” Ryan said. “Mark (Sanchez) (can) just throw it to the open guy.  Whoever is open, throw it to him.  He has a tendency, “Well
I’m going to get Braylon (Edwards) this many passes, Santonio this many, Dustin (Keller) this many, J-Co (Jerricho Cotchery) this many and all that.”  That’s not how you do it.  You go into the game, you just play what’s called and you throw it to the open guy.  It should be a lot of fun to watch.”
