Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

I think Gregg Williams sums it up quite nicely...



Q: Were there some communication issues with the new players?

A: Some is communication. It was fatigue. Some of it was just poor plays. I have to do coaching too. I have to help them with an easier plan in some situations also. One of those deep passes wasn’t one of those new guys. It happened to be one of those old guys that I had to chit chat with on the sideline. They’re pretty hard on him this week. That’s something you might want to talk with him about in the locker room. They’ve not been wanting to take me out to dinner much this week.

Q: Did Malcolm Jenkins struggle?

A: Malcolm had a couple things. He had a couple plays and there’s going to be learning experiences, but he really played well in some other areas, but they took advantage of a couple things.

He looks like a typical promising young rookie. He has all the physical skills required, yet he still bites a bit on out moves, which is why he grabs.

I'll give him a B-, he gets 1/2 a grade point for special teams play.
Couldn't agree more. Kid looks good to me. I'd like to add that he doesn't appear to be losing confidence (having a short memory is an unappreciated skill in the CB) and that's huge. I also like the comment about the game not slowing down for him yet. It will eventually, and he'll be good.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

Jenkins is a great playmaker, and he will be making more and more big plays.

His speed is a liability when our speed guys are injured, and he has to
cover the fastest receiver on the field. Otherwise, he should do fine.

I do think he will soon be converted to FS. Not so much because of his
speed, but because he is such a physical, smart, instinctive playmaker.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

I like Jenkins so far...and he's with vets that can show him the ropes. His strrength pressing at the line can cancel a lot of problems in coverage. If he can continue to interrupt routes and blow away QB-receiver timing, it can only improve our results. He's a keeper.

I can remember many clamoring for him to start this season... with his play of late, I'm sure one could see the reason why he was sitting at the bottom of the depth chart. If we went into the playoffs with Jenkins starting at one side, I'd be pretty worried.
The past two games? He looked awesome in the Patriots game; sure tackling, solid coverage, no blown assignments.

I thought he got away with a lot during the Pats game and that he played poorly. There was a lot of holding calls that were blantant which wasn't called. He could not keep up with Welker at all.

He does look a little lost out there at times but Welker does that to a lot of DBs. This should be a good learning experience for him and should make him more coachable for next season. What he got away with at Ohio State wont work in the NFL.

What is this about Welker? He was as shut down as I have seen him in 2 years. Good job MJ!

MJ got away with a few calls but I still think he will be OK and glad we picked him.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

It looked to me that on the longest pass play Jenkins gave up in the Redskins game Sharper (or maybe Harper) was playing out of position. One of the safeties should have been giving Jenkins help deep. Jenkins is a rookie who's made some great plays this season, so I feel good about his future. Naturally, he's gotten burned some, but so did Porter in his first season. He was the one who gave up the long pass to Moss late in the 4th quarter two years ago when we lost to the Redskins.
