New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes has been steadily improving through the first three games of the regular season, and looked to be back at the top of his game on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Santonio Holmes hauled in five passes for 154 yards and a touchdown against the Bills. Still, according to Holmes, he isn't where he needs to be physically. Santonio Holmes suffered a Lisfranc injury last year that cut his season short.
Santonio Holmes has looked more and more comfortable each week, a big boost for New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith. Marty Mornhinweg has shown a willingness to stretch the field with his wide receivers, and a healthy Santonio Holmes makes that an attractive option for the Jets. Holmes certainly looked healthy on Sunday when he caught five passes for 154 yards and a touchdown against Buffalo.
That's scary for opposing defenses. The Jets have been able to grind out two wins over the first three games and although the offense has been far from electric, they have made important plays and put together competent performances. As Santonio Holmes returns to full health, Jeremy Kerley recovers from his concussion and Geno Smith gets more comfortable in the offense, there is major potential to be tapped.
Santonio Holmes gives the Jets offense legitimacy when he steps on the field. He makes everyone else's job easier by attracting the attention of the secondary and demanding respect as a big play threat. Combining that with Stephen Hill's unique combination of size and speed, as well as Jeremy Kerley's skill set makes the jets a dangerous receiving corps. Add in a solid running game and a nice screen package, Geno Smith has a complete offense around him.
