Is it me or did Bradshaw have huge gaping holes to run through ?
Nope, its not just you. I saw the same EXACT thing and thought wow, if our RB's had those holes we'd be near the top of the league. I was tempted to post about that last night but fell asleep.

I'm glad someone else noticed.

Re: New Orleans Saints need Malcolm Jenkins to start delivering on star potential

Yeah, it seemed obvious to me that the Giants had tremendous success once they abandoned the run completely, early in the game, after 6-7 carries, and went into that panicky jittery pass/pass/pass formation the rest of the game

/sarcasm off

But yeah seriously. One article I read said something like 2.1 yards per carry in the first half, 23 rushing yards in the whole first half, then 120 something in the 2nd half. Even when they were only getting 1, 2 or even zero yards, early on in the game, they kept plugging away and running and then it paid off. They didn't give up on it even if it was stiff going at first, and it finally wore the defense down.

Title could be changed from "Malcom Jenkins" to (insert defensive starter name here)

We need to just move on from Jenkins. Move along now......there's nothing to see here.

i say i was wrong about the move to FS years ago. Maybe SS is a better position for him. seems like his best plays come close to the line.

Re: New Orleans Saints need Malcolm Jenkins to start delivering on star potential

The main reason Malcolm Jenkins looks so mediocre is because he is. He plays a position that requires true play maker ability. Not saying he doesn't have that potential, but he is no where close to Darren Sharper, Sammy Knight, or Tommy Myers for that matter. A FS is a position that needs to pick off passes, bottom line. Jenkins for whatever reason has not learned that art just yet. Moving Jenkins to SS does merit some conversation, but then what to do with Harper? This by itself pretty much tells the tale on why the defense is so bad. Please note I am not solely blaming these guys because they do play hard, just saying the Saints don't have the defensive play makers that are needed, especially in today's game.

Re: New Orleans Saints need Malcolm Jenkins to start delivering on star potential

Moving Jenkins to SS is a terrible idea. He's not a very good tackler at all. It would be like moving Shanle to MLB. FS is the only position Jenkins will ever play in the NFL IMO.

When our front 7 starts to play better, he will improve.

He could learn to tackle, SS might be the position he can play, he is not a true FS, no way shape or form. Most times I agree with you, this time I can't.
