Still ‘(learning) to walk again,’ New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes must produce this autumn

The Jets should have sent Santonio Holmes to the showers years ago.

“(Learning) to walk again,” loathsome New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes wouldn’t commit to playing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the swamps of Jersey during Week 1.

Catching 358 balls for 5,507 yards and 35 touchdowns in 92 games as a professional, the 29-year-old Holmes has been shelved since sustaining a Lisfranc foot injury last September against the San Francisco 49ers.

“Restricted to working out,” the 5-foot-11, 192 pound Holmes can’t be trusted on the gridiron or in the streets.

A cocky, belligerent and selfish bat cave, the former Florida drug peddler lacks any leadership qualities and serves as nothing but a distraction to Gang Green.

Although a dramatically overrated playmaker, Holmes will be targeted out of desperation when healthy.

With the solid Jeremy Kerley and unproven Stephen Hill as the only other options, head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg have no alternatives to Holmes.

Despite having an overall record of 38-32, the 50-year-old Ryan is a patsy who will likely be clipped in January.

To better Rex Ryan’s chances of remaining employed off Exit 16W, Santonio Holmes needs to quickly “(learn) to walk again” and produce in 2013.
