Tomlinson says Sanchez-Holmes rift 'bad'
For the three or four of you who are not sick of reading and hearing about the NFL's version of "Jersey Shore" that is the New York Jets, yet another story about the locker room drama has emerged.
Running back LaDainian Tomlinson said on Showtime's Inside the NFL via the New York Daily News on Wednesday that the rift between quarterback Mark Sanchez and receiver Santonio Holmes was "as bad as I've ever been around."
Tomlinson went on to say that perhaps the relationship between the two could be fixed, but if not, the Jets might have to do something to rectify it.
“You know it was at the point where I think the players could no longer do anything about it,” Tomlinson said. “When it gets to that point there are certain changes that need to happen. Can it be fixed? . . . I think absolutely it can be. But they’re going to have to make some tough decisions.”
Tomlinson said Holmes, a team captain, needed to work on being a leader and said Sanchez was "pampered" because, “He has no real threat to say this guy may take my job.”
