06:52 AM ET 05.09 | The Jets publicly claim their quarterback job will be earned through competition -- one that may or may not end with Mark Sanchez under center. In the mind of receiver Santonio Holmes, Sanchez already has. "Right now Sanchez," Holmes said when asked to identify the starter during Wednesday's Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network, "and that's who we're going with and we're going to continue this road until time permits." Pressed on the question of whether Sanchez regards himself as the starter, Holmes said that Sanchez is focused on "being Mark Sanchez, the team leader." Holmes added that he and Sanchez are working to learn the new offense, implemented by offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

So which job is Holmes fulfilling? WR, GM, or Publicist/Team Spokesperson?

" Holmes said that Sanchez is focused on 'being Mark Sanchez,...'"

After all these years, after the Buttfumble, maybe Sanchez should focus on not being Mark Sanchez.

If Mark Sanchez is the team leader then the Jets are in deep trouble. Hi is a lot of things yet leader has never been associated with him nor should it be.

" The Jets publicly claim their quarterback job will be earned through competition "

In this case, it's really going to be a "who sucks the least?" competition.

Must be slow in the NFL these days when alls the interns at FN can come up with is a thread about junk QB and a junk team.

Oh! That Holmes. Sorry, my bad.

May 9, 2013  09:20 AM ET

Sanchez is focused on "being Mark Sanchez, the team leader."

This can't be good...

We should clarify for any confused readers of this T&R, they're talking about the winning of the QB job, not the actual winning of games.

I think Fireman Ed should get to pick the winner.

They'd might as well let Fireman Ed be the quarterback. He's already got a helmet.

Mark Sanchez has told Santonio Holmes he will now name his first born son Santonio Sanchez.
