08:01 AM ET 06.08 | Santonio Holmes, who said Wednesday he'd be attending Jets West, might need a bit more time to warm up. A disgusted [Holmes], who missed a handful of voluntary practice sessions while out of the country on a USO-sponsored trip to a U.S. Air Force base in Germany, pulled himself out of practice Thursday because he felt he was unfairly overworked by coaches. The New York Jets' top wide receiver staged a mini-meltdown near the end of the two-hour workout, limping off the field and tossing his helmet. He exchanged words with receivers coach Sanjay Lal, also drawing immediate attention from the trainer. Afterward, Holmes insisted he wasn't injured, but he clearly was bothered that the coaches wanted to give him a full workload despite his time away.

After the workout he was charged with impersonating Brandon Jacobs.

Well, the press is painting a bad picture of Holmes. They failed to mention that the assistant coaches were WAAAYY late in delivering milk and cookies to the players during one break and someone drew pictures on Santonio's nap mat while he was away.

You didn't see this kind of childish behavior when Jen Sterger was with the Jets.

Other kinds of childish behavior, yes, but not this kind.

Why is this news again?? Oh because its the JETS! Sad "journalism"...how many players get hot and irritated at practice and it never gets reported? Because its normal..next

"Holmes said he wants to be there because, even though he's not a captain anymore, he still sees himself as a team leader."

And I see myself as Sir Galahad.

Yea, but is Tebow ok?

Of the two of you, you're closer to being correct.

Sir Galahad: Is there someone else up there we can talk to?
French Soldier: No, now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.
