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

I agree Danno.
He, along with the other guys will look a whole lot better with improved front-7 play.
Even Greer is looking rookie-ish. 3-4 seconds is about the limit for any decent DB.
After that you are asking a bit much in coverage. Hanging in after two moves is plenty.
That aside...there is no excuse for letting guys get behind you with 45 seconds left in the half.
Even with no pass rush, and the D-line just keeping the QB coralled, it's just unacceptable.
And I'm not talking about one slip up in one game, this happens every week it seems.
Next years draft has GOT to be defensive; and free agency too.
We have scored enough points every week to be undefeated.
If we kept teams to 20 or less (2 TD's and 2 FG's), we are 5-0.
I'm thinking Spagnuolo doesn't have what he wants up front, or not getting what he wants,
and it's killing the back end. Seems like they should pick run-or-pass and stop ONE of them.
As it is, we ain't stopping SCHLITZ!

Maybe front 7 play would help him in coverage but again..front 7 play has ZERO to do with tackling. The dude can't tackle for s h i t !!!

Tackling someone in open field at full speed is not a science. If the front 7 do their job, the guy with the ball is a little slower, a little off balance, not as effective.

I don't understand why he doesn't like tackling, he's a big physical player and could hit like a truck if he adopted the proper technique, but he just dives at people's feet

That is called fear... No two ways about it.

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

I have to agree with all the bad press Jenkins has been getting because it's well deserved, but today, when everyone else quit on that 95 yard play by the Bucs, it was Jenkins who got our fat out the fire. So, if you bash him for his bad play, you have to give him props for his good plays too.

He also tackled Blount on that 3rd and 1 goal-line stand, then it was Will Herring who ran Freeman out on 4th down...
