It Took Santonio Holmes Three Days to Realize Jets Were Eliminated from Playoffs

The Detroit Lions were defeated by the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday via a 61 yard field goal from Ravens toe Justin Tucker. With it, Santonio Holmes' New York Jets' playoffs chances were booted from contention. This gem comes from CBS New York:

Santonio Holmes didn’t know that the Ravens’ win meant that the Jets’ playoff dream was dead until Wednesday morning.

And he didn’t seem to be too upset about it, either.

“It didn’t bother me,” the 29-year-old said. “They did what they had to do, and we didn’t.”

To be fair to Santonio, the Jets haven't exactly lit the world on fire this year, so he probably had written off the playoffs long before Justin Tucker's booming kick.

They did, but the win knocked the jets from playoff contention.

Byron, you get the gold star for today. I have fixed my error, gracias. (This is what I get for only watching Browns NFL games.)

Gold stars are part of 11W premium, buddy. You're not ready.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

LOL, hard for me not to like Santonio.  I remember him doing things like this for the Buckeyes.
As a Steeler fan, he took it to the next level.  Regardless of what he did or does during the rest of his pro career, Steeler Nation will never forget the his Super Bowl performance, as he locked up his Super Bowl MVP trophy, and Lombardi #6, with one of the best catches you'll ever see on the game's biggest stage.

Santonio is great.  I bet he is funny as hell to hang out with. He seems to be concerned with his own part of the world and everything else is fluff.  I just found out now the Jets weren't in the playoffs.

Santonio may be my favorite Buckeye ever. He was a joy to watch! Love the perspective he glibly provides: They did...we didn't".
