Top 10 reasons why Santonio Holmes is staying in New York

According to Jets' owner Woody Johnson, Quitter / WR Holmes will be back for the 2012 season. As always, FTT has the inside reasons behind a questionable decision. (Beyond the obvious point that they agree with him about the QB...)

10) As always in this town, it's more about the back page tabloids than actual football

9) The other WRs are actually worse than a guy giving no effort

8) Don't want to make things too easy on embattled QB Mark Sanchez

7) Can't admit that they lost the trade with the Steelers that brought him here

6) Somehow think that Holmes' ability to perform in close and late game excuses everything else

5) Can't possibly figure out how they'd replace 51 catches for 654 yards

4) Believe that leadership is all about carrying jewelry from being part of a championship team, years and years ago

3) Treasures the man's ability to somehow keep the club in the public eye, even with the Giants still alive

2) If they let go of every overrated guy who has been a distraction and given up on the team, wouldn't have enough players to practice, or have a coach

3) $7.5 million per year just doesn't go as far as it used to

Do you realize that if the Jets had stuck with the picks they traded to get Sanchez they potentially could have come out of that draft with Josh Freeman, LeSean McCoy, and Mike Wallace?

Freeman went at their original 1st round spot, McCoy went 1 pick later than the 2nd round pick they traded (they used their 3rd round pick on Shonn Greene), and Wallace was still on the board when they picked Greene.

Granted hindsight is 20/20, and I'm not a big Freeman fan, but still.
