It's been some time since Santonio Holmes has been really productive as the number one receiver he's paid as. Actually it's never even happened in a Jets uniform. Holmes, who has only topped 1,000 yards receiving in his career once has never done so as a Jet. He's been a constant voice of dissension and complaining over two of the last three years, culminating in a blow up on field against Miami in a pivotal Week 17 game which resulted in his benching. Last season he was hurt. If it wasn't for his contract, you have to think the Jets would be rid of him. Along with being just underwhelming, Holmes faces an uncertain quarterback situation guaranteed to make him mope more—which will do nothing to help his on-field production.

2012 Game Summaries
Week 1 - Holmes led all Jets receivers with 8 targets and finished with 4 catches for 68 yards. He looked like the team’s #1 receiver and nearly came down with a great touchdown catch but was ruled out of bounds. Holmes will likely continue to get plenty of targets in the passing game, but the other Jets receivers had strong games this week and may help draw some defensive attention away from him if that continues.
Week 2 - Holmes and Ike Taylor were battling constantly throughout the game. Early on, it looked like Holmes was going to treat Taylor like Demaryius Thomas has in recent memory. Taylor was called for a slightly questionable pass interference to set up a Holmes TD in the first quarter. The Pittsburgh defense clamped down though, as the offense possessed the ball for long periods of time and zapped New York’s offensive rhythm. Holmes and Sanchez appear to have nice chemistry together, though, as the offensive struggles were primarily due to pressure on Sanchez. He’s still very clearly Sanchez’s favorite target, and even though he didn’t make many catches, many of the plays were designed for him but were disrupted by pressure.
Week 3 - For the first time in 28 games, Holmes was able to generate a 100-yard game. Throughout the game, Holmes ran crisp routes over the middle and fought off the press coverage for inside position. Holmes took turns beating the press coverage of Richard Marshall and Chris Clemons. Holmes made many big catches, but his biggest play came on a huge 38-yard reception in overtime that set-up the game winning field goal. In addition, Holmes was able to draw a few big pass interference calls on Richard Marshall to extend drives. Most importantly for the Jets, Holmes appeared motivated after sulking his way through the Miami match-up last season. Let’s see how he builds off this performance.
Week 4 - On the first play of the fourth quarter, Holmes caught a pass from Sanchez and slipped as he attempted to turn up field. Holmes barrel-rolled in pain, gripping his left leg while subsequently fumbling the ball away. Carlos Rogers picked up the fumble and returned it for a touchdown. At first, it appeared to be a non-contact knee injury, but reports are stating that he suffered a foot injury. The Jets were already missing playmakers and Holmes’s absence further stymied the offense.
Before the injury, Sanchez and Holmes were able to hook-up on short and intermediate routes. Sanchez threw a quick rocket screen to Holmes on the team’s first drive. Holmes was able to create additional yardage in space for an eleven yard gain. While Holmes was able to ‘catch and create’, he and Sanchez failed to connect on deeper routes.
