Santonio Holmes complains about lack of targets

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes caught just one pass in a loss to the Tennessee Titans.

And he's unhappy about that development as he was targeted five times with one intercepted.

For the season, Holmes has 10 receptions.

“I can’t throw it to myself and catch it, otherwise I would,” Holmes told New York reporters. “I played 49 plays, and all I know is I had one catch. That’s all I can attest for. I just have to do my part, which is the position that I’m playing, which is primary X receiver, and a lot of times I get double-covered, taken out of plays, so the progression and the read from the quarterback have to go elsewhere.”

Holmes took to Twitter this morning to complain about the coverage of his complaints.

"What a great morning 2 awake 2 hear the media frenzy about Holmes quitting on his team, and he sucks, and he always blaming someone else," Holmes wrote. "For the record. This media stuff never distracts me, I hate that our #NyJets fans have to read this "crap" when things aren't going good!"
