– In 2010, Mike Jenkins had 8 penalties. Only 5 CBs in the NFL had more. Those 8 penalties cost his team 101 yards, and gave their opponent 7 first downs. The 8th was declined because their opponent scored on a 74 yard TD pass. Here they are:
|Week 5||Pass interference||35|
|Week 5||Pass interference||15|
|Week 6||Pass interference||23|
|Week 6||Pass interference||11|
|Week 7||Pass interference||7|
|Week 15||Defensive holding||5|
|Week 16||Pass interference, declined, 74 yard TD||0|
|Week 17||Defensive holding||5|
|Total penalty yards||101|
In 2011, Mike Jenkins’ penalty total: 0.
– Speaking of Dallas CBs, it appears Morris Claiborne will not be ready to practice with the team until training camp. Last year there was a lot of debate as to whether or not the shortened offseason hurt the 2011 rookie class. While Claiborne will be able to dive into his playbook unlike last year’s rookies, he’ll still have a similar disadvantage as last year’s group.
– Dan Graziano of ESPN’s NFC East blog chose Rob Ryan for the Cowboys in his “Pressure point” series, which examines who faces the most challenging season. I agree with that choice. However, here was Dan’s last sentence on Rob:
But Ryan’s got to show something really impressive this year, because if the Cowboys’ defense is costing them games again in December, his record and his pedigree aren’t going to be enough to spare him the blame.
I think there’s a common belief that Rob Ryan has some sort of impressive resume. He doesn’t:
|Rob Ryan||Overall||Run||Pass||Points||Team’s record|
– Interested read from Tommy at IgglesBlitz, who notes that LeSean McCoy probably would have held out if he didn’t get his deal.
– A couple days ago, we debated here which team’s offensive 2’s would be able to score if the 1’s were kidnapped. There was some debate as to who the 2’s would even be along the Redskins’ OL. Rich Tandler of Real Redskins gave his OL depth chart for the Skins.
Osi’s bumbling after the jump…
– Osi Umenyiora is not good at Twitter. First, he called LeSean McCoy a woman, and ESPNw’s Sarah Spain blasted him. Osi later apologized. Then he said that if he got 1,000,000 followers, he’d buy registered sex offender Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring, which is up for auction, and let his millionth follower give the ring back to LT personally. Then, a fan noted a major flaw in that strategy, which made Osi re-think it:
So Osi changed the terms and conditions:
I assume people didn’t quite understand what he meant, so he clarified:
And then re-clarified:
It looked like Osi wasn’t going to make it to a million, so he reduced the number. Somewhere, Lawrence Taylor had new hope, and began refreshing Osi’s twitter page feverishly to see his progress:
When the deadline passed, Osi remained 446,000 followers short 🙁
And then this morning, Osi basically said “Sorry LT, gave it my best shot. No ring for you. Best of luck, bud. Oh, and I promise this wasn’t just some nonsense stunt to gain more followers, since, as you can see, I’m reminding everyone that they now have the option to unfollow me.”
