Panthers riled up over comments made by Santonio Holmes

Jets WR Santonio Holmes has some interesting comments for the leagues second ranked defense.

Not to call these guys out, but their secondary is probably weakest link on their defense,” Holmes said this week.

Needless to say that Panthers secondary (which might I add ranks fifth in passing yards allowed) and HC Ron Rivera is now a bit riled up.

“The whole team should take it personal,” Mitchell said, via Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer. “I like that coach tries to do things like that. Always making it team, team, team. I think that’s very good how he does that for us.”

“Coach Rivera said something to the defense about it and like Coach Rivera says, it’s a team game,” cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said.  “If he feels that way, everybody on the field on Sunday, we’re out there together and we’re going to play for each other.”-ProFootballTalk.com

I guess statistically the Panthers pass defense is worse, but that’s mainly due to the fact that the Panthers have the #1 ranked rushing defense in the league. As if the Panthers weren’t big enough favorites already. Also if you have Santonio Holmes on your fantasy team I would suggest keeping him on the bench.
