Rex Understands Emotion Of Holmes Comments

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Coach Rex Ryan understands how the emotion of a season-ending loss can lead to the frustrated comments by Jets receiver Santonio Holmes.

Holmes told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers that they needed to ask offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer why the former Super Bowl MVP didn’t play at the start of the AFC championship game. Ryan said Monday “that’s not the way I like to operate,” but he understands “that’s the emotion of it at the time.”

Holmes becomes a free agent after the Jets acquired him from the Steelers before the season. He had 52 catches for 746 yards and six touchdowns in 12 regular-season games.
