    Jenkins in particular played one of the best games I have ever seen a NT play. He was on fire. I still think back to that moment when Phil Simms was replaying a 4th quarter running play. He said, "OH KRIS JENKINS!!". He said "That looked like Reggie White in his hayday".

    On the play that I am thinking of, Jenks got singled up with the Texans center. He made one straight up push and blew the Center right AIR BORN.

    He absolutely annihilated and OWNED the Texans OL that day. Truly a performance that any football fan could forever hold in high regard.
    Game definitely looked like the start of something big. Great defense, good running game, Sanchez converting 3rd downs...it was all there.

    As for Jenkins, it's funny that the team barely missed him for either '09 and '10 during the playoff run...but I can't help but wonder if the Pittsburgh game goes differently if Jenks was able to suit up. Oh well.

    And you know what? I think we don't give Rex Ryan enough credit for compensating for the loss of a monster defensive player like Jenkins... You lose a Kris Jenkins and STILL wind up going to the AFCCG??? TWICE???

    Rex Ryan deserves major credit for that. For all the jokes made about him, he really is quite a fine defensive coach.

    This guy was a HOF type talent. Downright unblockable when he was healthy.

BTW if one wants to compare football to something I would think the Military would be a better choice since the military has a boot camp(like training camp) plus military terms are also used in football the bomb,formation,blitz,red zone etc
    I wasn't trying to single you out. Your first post reminded me of other posts where people have bashed Jenkins for signing a big contract and getting hurt. That is all. Albeit brief, Jenkins played at an incredibly high level. I love Pouha and Devito but they could only dream of doing some of the things Jenks was capable of. Not to mention that it took the both of them to replace him.

    When he was healthy Big Jenks was my favorite Jet defensive player hands down.. The bash was based on his prison analogy meaning you don't get paid millions in prison when your hurt(Or when your not either).. Just like I think Peterson comparing football to slavery was beyond stupid.. Some people read into things and see what they want and then tell me what I meant.. If someone didn't understand all they had to do was ask..

    We could only be so lucky to get a player of his caliber. And if we do sometime soon? I'm requesting that the Jets FO move heaven and earth to keep him on this team for his entire career.
    Jets might have won a SB if he'd stayed healthy. We had a prime revis, OL was lights out dominant. Alas for what might have been.

    I think the Prison analogy was referring to having to battle physically every single day.
    You have to fight to survive in prison and you have to do the same to be a great NFL player.
    He was by FAR the most dominant Jet I've ever seen.
