The Jets Wide Receivers never revolted against buttfumble. Edwards loved being here and wanted to stay here. The Jets didnt want him back. Plaxico and Mason never said a bad thing about buttfumble during the season. Plaxico seemed annoyed in the interview but never said a bad word about Mark buttfumble. Holmes had problems with buttfumble over the way he was used but has said he has the potential to grow into a very good QB.
Revolting against a QB is what Owens did to Garcia. That's just an inaccurate statement you made.
can't really comment much cause all I know is that Holmes showed attitude problems in week 17 and there were reported issues here and there.
As a completely unbiased comment, I think the Jets should seriously consider getting an older vet WR that is known for leadership to help Santonio out. In Pittsburgh he had Hines Ward, he still managed to get in trouble here and there but there were no locker room issues. The Steelers made the choice to get rid of Holmes for a 5th (despite having a great year) because they didn't want him to be a bad influence on Mike Wallace.
I would be surprised if they cut him at this point. No question he has been a bust for the Jets and a major headache, but I think they hang on to him.
I don't think he's going anywhere....and I'm glad. The guy is a grade-S turd (S for SMELLY!!!)
He and Fatasaurus Rex deserve each actually.
I don't think the Jests will cut Holmes because of the cap hit they'll have to take if they do (I think it's like $9 million). It doesn't matter. The reason buttfumble doesn't throw much to Holmes is because Holmes runs downfield patterns not check-down routes within 3 yards of the LOS.
