Jets | Kris Jenkins not fan of Tim Tebow?

Sun, 24 Jun 2012 17:22:48 -0700

Retired DL Kris Jenkins (Jets) might not be that impressed by the exploits of QB Tim Tebow last season in Denver, although evidence refutes his statement. "He won on a lot of late drives where you are dealing with altitude and defenses are tired, and then he's making the magic happen," Jenkins said. "Now he's at sea level. Everyone can keep up with you." The evidence suggests Jenkins is misguided, as three of Tebow's five fourth-quarter comebacks were on the road, and Tebow did play his college ball at pancake-flat Florida.

Jets | Kris Jenkins critical of Mark Sanchez

Fri, 06 Jan 2012 06:35:29 -0800

Former New York Jets DL Kris Jenkins said that QB Mark Sanchez is more concerned being in the New York spotlight than emerging as a team leader. "...He got caught up in the wash that is New York, in the spotlight, taking pictures in the magazines and doing all of that stuff. That's just what everybody has seen with Mark Sanchez, they got tired of it," Jenkins said. "I think Mark wants to be a leader, but there's a difference between wanting it and taking it. He's always trying to be a crowd pleaser. He's always trying to be nice. He wants the leadership but he's not willing to take it."

Jets | Kris Jenkins gives Tom Brady a verbal shot

Mon, 17 Jan 2011 19:48:19 -0800

New York Jets DL Kris Jenkins (knee), on season-ending Injured Reserve, took a shot Monday, Jan. 17, at New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, reports Rich Cimini, of ESPNNewYork.com. He called Brady the "Pretty Boy" quarterback. "You can do little stuff (during games), but it's hard because you have the Brady Rules now," Jenkins said. "You can't touch him. At the end of the day, if you're cocky and you have special rules and stuff, no one wants to hear it. Be quiet. Shut up, just keep it to yourself, if you've got special rules. If this was back in the day, when Lawrence Taylor could hit you, when we were allowed to hit you, hit you the way Derrick Thomas would, I don't think he'd be running around, acting like that."
