Rookies making their mark

Rookies making their mark

For how much of a hyped up game this was and the importance of a W along with it, I'd just like to point out that two guys that made the biggest impact were our rookies - both called kenny

Kenny stills lead our team in receiving until late in the game when sproles caught a short pass and turned it into a nice gain, that move he put on the falcons safety was sweet and he had the maturity to know where he was, switch the ball to the other arm and wrap it up as there were three falcon defenders around him.

What can i say about Kenny Vaccaro, I love seeing matt ryan get lit up any day of the week, would have preferred to not have the penalty but the refs were calling us if the shoe laces werent tied.
More than a couple of times vaccaro came out of nowhere and slammed the ball carrier, lead us in tackles AGAIN!! (did so 4 times in preseason)

And the best play of all was watching him get just enough of a finger tip on that ball to make it bounce of gonzales' hands and right into roman's!!

great win, I'm pumped!!

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Re: Rookies making their mark

Does anyone else think Stills should have scored on the long catch at the end of the half?
It looked like he was running three quarters speed deciding what kind of move to make.
Seems like he should have just turned on the jets.

Re: Rookies making their mark

I'd like to add John Jenkins to that list. The stats do not portray the impact he had.

Totally crashed the pocket when he was in and Jackson had no running room in the middle

I'll call it a Rookie getting snaps and doesn't want to lose his spot.... It seemed like he realized he wasn't gonna make it and changed his self into a ground and pound rb mid play. Did you see him tuck the ball with two hands!!! LOL Kenny

Re: Rookies making their mark

Rookies made a difference, on both sides of the ball. The Kennys are a reason to be excited, but I honestly think Jenkins could be the steal. With him in the game, we got more pressure on that QB and more disruptions in the running game.

Just think, we got a "D" grade for picking him up in the 3rd round this year...suck it, Bleacher Report.

I was concern about Jenkins stamina but he was a beast out there!
