Santonio Holmes remains upset he was benched in the Jets' 2011 season finale, claiming he was the "scapegoat" for the team's disappointing record. "It was the end, it was playoffs on the line, and your best receiver doesn't get but two passes thrown his way in 60 minutes of football," Holmes told ESPN New York 98.7 FM. "That's just hard to understand and to cope with when you want everything just as bad as everybody else does, and it just doesn't even happen. And nobody has the answers for it, but 'the scapegoat' is the answer, and that's what happened."
