So you calling all those passes in the stands that keeps Ryan from being sacked to Jenkins?
Pudge I love your numbers. Of every single pass that Ryan has thrown to Tony, Jenkins was only open once
and that was 5 yards away and Tony caught the Td that was thrown to him instead; right before half time against the Bears.
You really think Gruden knows Jenkins has been sucking Monday night? They game him a prop and told him if Jenkins does something good say " This is what the Falcons need" If he does nothing say "Jenkins is letting down the organization."
I'm really surprised Jenkins hasn't picked up his game a little with the addition of Tony. That's why we're keeping 9 in;
Jenkins isn't getting open anyway.
Sorry Cyril, those are official
stats. Jenkins had 9 passes thrown to him on Monday Night. Look it up yourself if you don't believe me.
Yeah Jenkins is really earning his 5 million with how many TD catches in how many games?I know we have Turner, White and Gonzo but on the subject of getting open if Jenkins is on par getting the ball thrown to him as much as last year where are all his catches.
There hasn't been a significant drop in production for Jenkins. Last year, looking at how many passes he caught vs. how many times he thrown, he caught 61.7% of the passes thrown his way. This year it's 55%. For comparison's sake, Roddy caught 59.5% of the passes thrown his way last year, while the number is 56.1% this year.
I think we need to get finneran more involved. All he does is make plays when he is out there. You don't see him dropping passes that hit him in hands like Jenkins. Bench Jenkins and put finneran in. Make Jenkins earn his starting position.
Finneran can't beat man coverage and will be no serious challenge to Jenkins. Jenkins already has earned his starting position.

Thats what I say let someone else take a shot, you see what happened to Grimes they benched him and he came back and played his ass off. competition always makes real players better. If they bench "Houdini" for Booker, Weems, or Finneran only two things he can happen respond like Grimes and come out and play up or even past his potential or he can pout about it and get butt hurt about the situation and fade away or he can demand a trade or something(dont think thats his style). Either way we will know if we need to get a number two in the off season.
No, we don't need to know if we need to get a #2 this year. Because we don't need one.
I think all of this is just a gross overreaction to a string of subpar games for Jenkins. People act like this is year 3 or 4 of Jenkins being a poor player. You take the last 3 games in which Jenkins hasn't performed very well (but neither has his QB) and people act like they completely overshadow the previous 20 or so when Jenkins was actually a pretty good player.
If Jenkins continues to have drops in critical situations, then I'll be more in line with criticizing him. But the simple truth is that Jenkins is going to be a Falcon for the forseeable future, and unless he regresses a lot more than he has, then there is no reason to get rid of him.
