Re: John Jenkins ?

He's a nose tackle, probably not going to hear much from him. According to Triplett's blog he played 23 snaps against the Eagles to Bunkley's 34. So he's out there a good bit.

Speaking of Bunkley he was a stud against the Eagles. I feel like he's one of the most underrated players on the defense.

Re: John Jenkins ?

Jenkins had 5 tackles, 1 assist and 3 stops against the Eagles. Best game all year. Best run defense grade out all season matching his Buffalo performance.

He is a NT.... You dont hear schit about them unless they screw up.

Jenk has no less than 1/3-1/2 of the snaps in every single game this season.

Bunkley has only been in 13 games and has been solid in all games except Seaphucks and Fowlclowns

Re: John Jenkins ?

Whe Bunkley was hurt and Jenkins came in and played well thats when I knew we had a good NT. I think this big guy can get better and better.

Bunkley and Jenkins make a great NT rotation. They go unnoticed which is why many didn't think Bunkley played well last year in the Spag disaster. He actually graded out as our best defender last year. He is constantly overlooked and underrated.

I'm not sure he's gonna take a pay cut next year, and he shouldn't. He may be restructured and extended however.

Re: John Jenkins ?

Bunkley has great upper strength, Jenkins is more of a roadblock right now but he is on his way up and has improved quite a bit. Both were outstanding pickups.

Bunkley was always a better fit for a 3-4 defense, thats why he was so dominant in denver

He was good anyway but our scheme now suits him better, just like cam jordan

I think alot of the reason our D is top 5 now is rob playing them to their strengths, e.g vaccaro as a nickle safety
