Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

The problem for Jenkins when grading him as a CB is that he's got Tracy Porter as the measuring stick. If you compare how Porter played his first few games at CB and how Jenkins has looked playing CB the past 2, MJ don't look good.

I tell you... the field conditions in Maryland were horrible. I don't think we have ever seen either Greer or Porter play in a field that soggy. I think I need to see a couple more games before I can say either way.

I was hoping someone else noticed.

But if his assignment was to disrupt Welker's route and give the safety time to react then MJ did his job that night.

Maybe the Washington game was just a different game plan, but MJ did look behind his man most of the game.

Field conditions? Nah, bc the receivers had to run on the same field and they had no problems getting past our guys.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

Jenkins will be making some mistakes but I think the potential is there for him to be real good. He is a rookie and has been throw in the fire. We were not getting the benefit of having any calls go our way when the Redskins were on the offensive side. Holding could have been called numerous time against the Skins and it was obvious to me that the officials were not going to come clean. Even though we won the game I thought the officials were really calling the game poorly. Worst I have seen all year for any team or game.The officials were calling everything against the Saints and were turning a blind eye to the Redskins. We were fortunate to get out of there with a win and if not for Payton calling time out we would have lost. That crew of officials had to be forced into every call we got.

Seems to me that they are going after him like they went after Jason David and with about the same results. Not good. Maybe, MAYBE a D.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

i think the saints drafted jenkins with the idea of him playing the 3rd or 4th corner this year and eventually moving him to safety.. allowing him to learn the aspects of covering the NFL WR.. but the injuries to both starting corners has thrust Jenkins into a starting spot and i think he has handled it fairly well for a rookie who has been mostly playing opposite the teams best WR...
