According to the New York Daily News, the feeling in the Jets organization is that Santonio Holmes' foot injury will end his season.
The Jets are still awaiting final test results, but early indications are anything but positive. The exact nature of the injury has yet to be revealed. After losing their best defensive and offensive playmakers in consecutive weeks, it's fair to wonder if the Jets will be in the hunt for the No. 1 draft pick in April. Chaz Schilens and Jeremy Kerley will be the starting receivers in Week 5 if Stephen Hill (hamstring) remains sidelined. Per beat writer Manish Mehta, the Jets believe that bringing back free agent Plaxico Burress would "hamper" Mark Sanchez.
With them taking no action before, and currently, and everyone scratching their heads in reaction, it all sounds absurdly staged. Tebow taking over after Sanchez has faced and is completely demolished by the tough defenses sets the stage for letting him and the fans down easy.
Shockey can block. Something neither Keller nor Cumberland could ever do. It's a no brainer but ofcourse the JI naysayers will continue to scream how "he's done, your stupid" meanwhile none of our skill position players can get open or even throw a decent block once in a while.
I would look at Shockey 10 times over before the other two. Roto has him rumored to go to the Eagles.

Theisman didn't fumble, didn't toss the ball away, on the play where LT snapped both the upper and lower large bones of his leg in two (or "in four" would be more accurate, I guess), right? If you're too young to have seen it, Google it.
looks like a pretty conscious act from those angles. he could of at least thrown it out of bounds. or he could have curled up and taken a hit. regardless he isn't totally with the jets and if he's out, so what. get someone else.

I said it in the game thread when it happened: this is all I needed to see of this guy.
