With what Santonio said earlier in the week, we had to come out and shut him up. I think we did a good job of that.”

Yeah, great job watching Holmes drop that first down pass.

What I hate about this is it really has nothing to do with what he said, it had to do with what the media claimed he said. If everyone wasn't forced to get their information through the filter of "lets make the Jets (and Holmes specifically) look bad, everyone would know that it was a very true statement about how great their run defense is and how you need to have a good passing game to beat them. He was very clear that 'weaker than their #1 run defense' wasn't an insult, but the media decided to truncate the quote so that it sounded like an insult, to the point where Gumble had to point out his own hypocrisy halfway through the game, not that it stopped him. I don't expect players in Carolina to know to actively disregard every member of the NY media, but I am constantly disappointed by the complete lack of journalistic ethics when it comes to this team.

Wow. The Panthers managed to shut down Santonio Holmes! His 395 yds this season have been striking fear into secondaries across the NFL. Those Panther DBs are really awesome.
