Santonio Holmes wants Jets to attack Dolphins DBs

Which version of the New York Jets offense will show up on Sunday in Miami?

Will we see the explosive unit that blew the Buffalo Bills out of the Meadowlands in Week 1? Or will it be the lethargic walkers who couldn't move the ball for most of Week 2?

A lot of this falls on the Jets' wide receivers, who pulled a disappearing act against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Santonio Holmes is of the belief that the group is set up for success against the Miami Dolphins secondary.

Rapoport: Week 3 game rankings


What's the best matchup of Week 3? The worst? Ian Rapoport ranks this week's games in order of intrigue, from 1 to 16. **More ...**

"With our skills and our speed, we should really take advantage of those guys," Holmes said Wednesday, via Rich Cimini of

Miami has a very different looking secondary than the last time these two teams met on New Year's Day. Vontae Davis was traded, safety Yeremiah Bell was cut (later landing with the Jets). Sean Smith and Richard Marshall are experienced corners, but the safety position is vulnerable with Chris Clemons and Reshad Jones.

"We'd like to get an upper edge and advantage against those guys early, so now they have to come out and defend us and play us in a respectable manner," Holmes said.

Despite a touchdown catch, Holmes and Sanchez had ugly chemistry against the Steelers. Rookie Stephen Hill, meanwhile, didn't even show up in the box score after his two-touchdown debut.

This unit needs to be more consistent ... though that could be said for the entire offense.
