Derrick Ward Targeted

September 9th, 2009

The Dallas media seems to be hounding Bradenton native and former South Florida star Michael Jenkins to talk trash about the Bucs not drafting him.

Jenkins, thus far, doesn’t seem to be biting.

That doesn’t mean the Cowboys cornerback isn’t steaming. In particular, Bucs running back Derrick Ward better watch out for Jenkins.

Seems as though Cowgirls fans if not the pen and mic club have taken Jenkins to task for an ole’ tackle of then-Giants running back Ward. And the criticism for Jenkins on that one play continues and Jenkins is getting sick of it.

Jenkins played in 14 games, starting three. In his second start, against Tampa Bay, Jenkins made a career-high seven tackles.

But he took a big fall for the one tackle he did not make. Late in a blowout loss to the New York Giants, Jenkins avoided contact with running back Derrick Ward. Criticism from that replay is still ringing.

“I feel like I had a great season last year until one play, and everybody’s judging me off of one play, and that was a tackle,” Jenkins said. “That’s how I’m getting judged, off one play.”

Joe gets the impression Jenkins might be headhunting Ward if the two are near each other in the same piece of real estate. Ward might want to look out. And Joe hopes the zebras have their hands on the yellow hankies.

    No offense to all of you Micheal Jenkins apologists out there, but even with Talib’s off field trouble, he’s by far the better CB so far. Jenkins had a crappy rookie season, and with effort like this on the field I’m glad we didn’t draft him. Talib has minor character issues fine but he doesn’t dog it on the field, and he was able to start all last season in the NFL. Jenkins couldn’t even beat out PACMAN who isn’t even in the league anymore.
