Thread: Chris Jenkins interview with Boomer and Carton

  1. #1

    Chris Jenkins interview with Boomer and Carton

    – On what’s wrong with the Jets: “It starts up top. One of the things about ‘Hard Knocks’ when it aired that left a sour taste in my mouth was that you saw (owner) Woody Johnson and (GM) Mike Tannenbaum just as much as you saw everybody else, and it’s about football. Go sit down somewhere. You’re a billionaire, it’s your team, these are your guys, they’re representing you. Let the team show themselves. Let the team work. Let the team understand what football is about.”

    – On Mark Sanchez and the team’s high-profile culture: “He’s got his little girlfriend … and they’re GQ magazine posers and all of this stuff and it’s cute, yes. But if you can’t play football and do that at the same time, then stop doing it. Focus on football. Go sit in a corner, watch film and do all of that stuff.”

    – Why he gets frustrated watching the Jets: “They have the talent. They’re just not using it.”

    – Is Tannenbaum a good general manager? “No. I think he’s great with money and crunching the numbers. … He finds talent that is raw. But if you don’t have people that know how to put it together, then you can’t select those type of players.”

    His knock on Tannenbaum seems more a knock on the coaching staff.

    All of this drivel coming from a guy who played 3 snaps for us and has done nothing else basically in his career.

    whatever

    How about finding talent that is GOOD. And ready (or near ready) to go now. Lots of "potential" talent. Which again means "haven't done sh*t yet".

    Pure media drivel and crap

    He had no problem when Tannenbaum traded a 3rd and a 5th and adumped a 37 million dollar contract on him, of which he only played a year of it.

    The hard knocks comments are laughable, he sure didn't seem to mind when the camera got a shot of him riding the golf cart when he wasn't even on the practice field yet coming off of yet another injury. (Though I readily admit that was a classic shot)

    But Jenkins is falling victim of a lot of players who move into the media industry, they make **** up or bull**** their way in doing their jobs and they do it while compromising the integrity of the sport and the very league or organization that once paid him good money.

    And some fans buy in

    Pathetic

    Yea, done nothing in his career other than make 4 Pro Bowls and 2 First-Team All Pro selections. Jenkins had talent and if not for injuries could've been really good for us...

    I guess you SOJFs andchowd trolls are right about me being a moron...

    I googled Chris Jenkins and came up with a Welsh weight lifter and a cricket commentator... Then it hit me that the OP was referring to KRIS Jenkins

    Jenkins loves to talk about his former team. It's become a trend now. What a douche. To think I actually rooted for him in Carolina.

    As usual Big Jenks is spot on. Especially with Sanchez.

    Between Namath, LT, Kris Jenkins and Ray Lucas I don't know which one is worse....you don't see Curtis Martin, Wayne Chrebet, Vinny, Chad, Shaun Ellis or Mo Lewis coming out and saying **** about the Jets. Those guys are class acts. I'm sick of this "Hey look at me" crap by former Jet players.....cant wait till we all make them look stupid.

    Some guys live by the ..if you have nothing nice to say say nothing.

    Other guys are more open and honest.

    What did Kris say that was wrong?

    +1. Funny to think that once a former player criticizes the Jets they get bashed by the fanbase. Joe Willie got the same treatment but in retrospect he was pretty spot on.

    You don't see Curtis Martin, Wayne Chrebet, Vinny, Chad, Shaun Ellis or Mo Lewis coming out and saying anything because they're not on TV as football analysts...
