It doesn’t matter what Holmes does on Monday Dan Leberfeld

Chicago Bears WR Santonio Holmes could have 12 catches for 200 yards and three touchdowns on Monday against the Jets, and Gang Green still did the right thing moving on from him after last season.

It was the right time for a divorce.

Just like the Pittsburgh Steelers moved on from him in 2010, after he just had his best season with 79 catches and five touchdowns, and was two seasons removed from being the Super Bowl MVP.

He is very moody, and according to Nick Dawidoff, who was embedded with the Jets in 2011, the coaches felt he didn’t always good full speed in practice.

Holmes got thrown out of a huddle in the Jets-Miami game, at the end of the 2011 season, for having a poor attitude.

Yesterday, Rex Ryan said very nice things about Holmes in his press conference. What did you expect him to say? Did you expect him to trash him?

The bottom line is the Jets needed to move in a different direction.

And even a strong performance on Monday night from Holmes, won’t make the decision to release him a bad one.
