    I never like to hear about any player on the Bucs getting hurt, but I never like Jenkins as a player even going back to his USF days. I also didn’t think he truly earned the starting job over Banks who I thought had a great preseason. Jenkins was hurt all through training camp and he didn’t come in with a great reputation so how did he win the starting job in the first place?

      I Agree 100%, Banks earned that spot. This is something that if Schiano did, fans would be calling for his head. At least Banks gets what he earned.

        Gibsonmx, this IS something that Schiano did and no one called for his head at the time. Schiano did the exact same thing by starting a CB with a poor track record (E. Wright) over a better one (A. Talib) at the #1 CB spot in the same situation (home opener and first game with new HC) against the same team (Panthers) with the same outcome (#1 WR S. Smith beat Wright repeatedly). Let the Schiano firing go man. He got plenty of chances; let Lovie get his.



          First off, I am not upset that Schiano was fired. I believe he had to go. But you are not correct that wright started over Talib. Both players started that game. And after watching the highlights again it was Talib getting burned by smith, NOT Wright. So please if you want to throw out facts, please make sure they are correct. Also I am a Lovie fan, had the chance to meet him several years ago when he was the LB coach, great man and i wish him nothing but the best

    Never like to see a player injured. That said, what the &[email protected]% was he doing starting over Jonathan Banks?

    Agree with the rest of you…no way should he have been starting over Banks. Jenkins is athletically gifted, but as a DB doesn’t do the job.
