Malcolm Jenkins Downplays Micheal Thomas Drama; "We know where his heart is..."

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2020...as-suspension/ “Everybody knows we’re all highly competitive athletes and Michael is always on edge and plays with that chip on his shoulder. But, all of us need to know where those lines are that we can’t cross.” That last comment ...

Malcolm Jenkins Downplays Micheal Thomas Drama; "We know where his heart is..."

https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2020...as-suspension/

“Everybody knows we’re all highly competitive athletes and Michael is always on edge and plays with that chip on his shoulder. But, all of us need to know where those lines are that we can’t cross.”

That last comment referred to an exchange between Thomas and members of the coaching staff after he was separated from a fight with safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson. Several reports suggested that parting shot played a bigger role in Thomas being benched for the prime-time Chargers game than the scrap itself; frustrations often boil over in practice and sometimes punches get thrown, which Jenkins noted isn’t unusual. So maybe this is a learning experience for his younger teammate.

Jenkins continued, “One mistake doesn’t change how we feel about our teammate. We know where his heart is.”

Apparently Jenkins has a gift for knowing what people truly think and feel inside.

I wonder if this ability was bestowed upon him before or after he publicly ridiculed Drew Brees for his comment?

It would be a real shame if Jenkins had that power to "know where his heart is" but decided against using it to help another teammate through a troubling, public fight.

I'm sure he'd never jump to conclusions about someone's true "heart". Especially not one of the NFL's most stand-up leaders arguably of all time.

Obviously, Michael Thomas can act like a buffoon and get suspended and he has "true heart". But Drew Brees is "ignorant".

You hit the nail. Gonna stick with this...**** you Jenkins. And shame on you Sean for letting go of a good safety (Bell) for this over paid clown.

Hey Jenkins... how about learning to tackle and not blow a coverage for at least 1 game.

Locker rooms and forums generally mimic society and the only difference that I see between their conduct and ours is that distance prohibits punches from being thrown here.

Are you suggesting someone deserves a punch here?
