In the 2011-2012 season, the New York Jets ended on a sour note. Not only were they unable to make the post season after appearing in the AFC Championship Game the past two seasons, but their team chemistry imploded in front of their eyes. The last game of the season was against the Miami Dolphins, a division rival, and in a must win game, the Jets could not pull through. In a 19-17 loss, Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions, but he was not the main focus for the crushing loss. Instead, it was wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who sat out the final drive of the game after having an argument and difference of opinion in the huddle. He was only targeted a couple times in the season finale, and had zero catches the entire game. Holmes was given a five-year, $50 million contract that off-season, and many fans and analysts were wondering if Holmes would return to the Jets for the 2012-2013 season. The new season is now right around the corner, and Santonio will, in fact, be in a Jets uniform. The Super Bowl XLIII Most Valuable Player will be a key component if New York wants to have a successful year, and if he does not show up ready, it is likely the Jets may part ways.
