This play and the Tony Richardson pancake on Thomas Jones' TD - where T-Rich flattens the guy, then turns around and pumps his fist in admiration of his block while TJ's strutting to the end zone are my two favorites from this game.
To me there is no question that this guy is the premier DT/NT in the league. Actually, Id go as far as to say when healthy he's one of the most dominant defensive players at any position on any team..Other than a guy like Peppers, Harrison or Ware, I don't know if there's too many players Id chose over him. The ability to take on two guys and handle them makes things so much easier for the rest of his teammates on defense and when you have more than capable players behind him in Harris and Scott to fly right past the destruction Jenkins leaves in his wake and make a play on the ball. Not only is he a beast of a man in terms of his strength but he is agile and quick for someone his size, as well. There is no one who can stop him from doing what he wants to do singlehandedly in this league. The second we traded for him I was ecstatic..and that was before I found out how much we gave up for him..I mean really a 3rd and a 5th for this guy, really?...hands down the best move Tanny has made since he's been at the helm in my opinion. I LOVE Jenkins and like everyone here knows: if he goes down at any point due to injury, so do our prospects of having an elite defense..
