This guy has a firm grasp of the obvious!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Jenkins does seem to take the wrong angles and just whiffs on a tackle or chases a ball carrier all the way to the goal line with out trying to make a dive tackle. Don't get me wrong he's young ...

Jenkins does seem to take the wrong angles and just whiffs on a tackle or chases a ball carrier all the way to the goal line with out trying to make a dive tackle. Don't get me wrong he's young and developing, but I was spoiled by Darren Sharper. He also has a tendency to go for the big tackle and misses it instead. And over the top he seems to react and get there just a little late. He's a star in the making because he's smart. He just needs a little time.

With no pass rush using 6 players, Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu would have been exploited on the backend.

They didn't play well, but they were certainly no worse than just about anyone else that day.
We sucked - they did not suck. End of it!! If we continue to suck - we continue to lose
