Jets’ Santonio Holmes: Panthers’ secondary a weak link

If you call someone out, but preface it by saying you’re not calling them out, is it still a call-out?

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes said what many analysts, media and observers have said about the Carolina Panthers since training camp.

“Not to call these guys out, but their secondary is probably the weakest link on their defense,” Holmes said, according to ESPN New York.

The Panthers’ front seven has gotten most of the praise for the team’s No. 2 overall defense ranking while the secondary has been given the nickname “Legion of Whom.”

Holmes, who has 16 catches for 381 yards in a season shortened by injury, made these comments after the Panthers’ locker room had closed to the media.
