Help Is On The Way, Geno!
The New York Jets have established a ground and pound rushing attack that has led them to recent victories over the Patriots and Saints.
Part of the reason is because they’ve been somewhat forced to, without two valuable offensive weapons.
Veteran wideout Santonio Holmes has missed the last five games with a nagging hamstring. The last time he was played an entire game?
It was the third week of the season against the Bills in which Holmes caught a career-high 154 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
Tight end Kellen Winslow has missed the last five games relative to being suspended for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy.
Winslow is averaging 10 yards a catch with 17 balls caught on the year in five games.
“It puts a smile on my face to get these guys back,” said quarterback Geno Smith.
With a 5-4 record, Jets fans are smiling with you, Geno.
