Jon Gruden on Kris Jenkins...

Postby killiansjmd » Fri Apr 04, 2008 10:44 am

It seems that offensive mastermind Jon Gruden celebrated the departure of culture-vulture and lane-clogging beast Kris Jenkins’ from his division when Carolina traded him to the Jets February 29 for their 3rd and 5th picks.

“I did a celebrating drive down Dale Mabry (Highway),” said Gruden, referring to the road that fronts the Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium.

“I gave (Jets) coach Eric Mangini the biggest hug I’ve ever given a coach and told him, `Good God, do we appreciate you taking that guy out of our division,” Gruden said at a media breakfast with NFC coaches at the NFL owner’s meetings this week.

If Jon Gruden was celebrating, let’s hope that Bill Belichick was even more sour than usual …

I do think that Jenkins has a lot to learn this offseason, but if you’ll remember, Mangini did use the one-gapping ‘Blitzburgh’ variety more than his former boss ever did, so I think the transition for Jenkins might be easier than people think.


I hope he's finally the answer for our run defense. If he can clog up the middle and let Harris make plays we will be in good shape this year defensively.
