Jets quarterbackÂ Mark SanchezÂ and receiverSantonio HolmesÂ may need some marriage counseling. Â Jets coach Rex Ryan told theÂ New York PostÂ that Holmes told him heâ€™d like to get away for a weekend retreat with Sanchez to fix their chemistry. Ryan has been steadfast in saying that neither Sanchez nor Holmes is going anywhere, and he says that Holmes sounds like heâ€™s committed to making the relationship work. Â Read more after the jump.
â€œIt seemed like that was what Santonio was talking about,â€ Ryan said. â€œI donâ€™t know if heâ€™s reached out to Mark yet and done anything but that is what I believe to be true.â€
Ryan still believes Sanchez and Holmes can be a great quarterback-receiver combination.
â€œThe first year they had good chemistry together,â€ Ryan said. â€œWhatever happened, happened but weâ€™ll learn from it. Iâ€™m confident because I think we have to be successful, they have to be successful together. I know one thing they are both extremely competitive.â€
According to Ryan, both Sanchez and Santonio are committed to making the team better, as is everyone else on the team.
â€œThere isnâ€™t one person in this organization who feels good about where we finished,â€ he said. â€œWe canâ€™t wait to get it done again. Weâ€™d love to be able to play tomorrow. Weâ€™ll see. I think the strength of our football team will be in how we feel about each other and all that, the chemistry that weâ€™ve always built. I think that will be a strength and wonâ€™t be a weakness like it might have been perceived this year.â€
