In an appearance on NFL Network host Rich Eisen’s podcast, Tomlinson outlined where he thinks the trouble could come. “Santonio was brought there to be the No. 1 receiver and catch a lot of balls through the passing game and if you are a team that’s not going to throw the ball very much that’s going to make for an unhappy receiver, right?” Tomlinson asked. “So, if Week 6 they haven’t thrown the ball more than 15 times a game and Santonio is not getting his catches you may hear some things: him speaking out, him saying things that may rub some teammates the wrong way. ...” Gee. Bold predictions there. History does tend to repeat itself and all of the scenarios outlined by came to pass last year. The difference between last year and this year? Sparano and the run-first approach. In other words? It'll be more of a surprise if Holmes is happy this season than if he's not.
