Holmes takes more shots

Santonio Holmes is on a roll. The Jets' outspoken wide receiver has been spewing a lot of opinions lately, and Wednesday he also hit the Patriots' underwhelming defense and Jets legend Joe Namath.

Statistically, the Patriots are having a rough go on defense, ranked 32nd in yards allowed (477.5 per game).

"The numbers speak for themselves about how well they're not playing," Holmes said.

That might find its way to Bill Belichick's bulletin board.

Holmes also didn't hold back on Namath, who went on 1050 ESPN Radio Monday and criticized Holmes for his critical comments about the offensive line and Mark Sanchez after the loss in Baltimore.

"Joe Namath doesn't work for the New York Jets," Holmes said. "He doesn't coach here. He doesn't have anything positive to say about us. We can't feed into what he talks about on the outside to the media."
