Kris Jenkins has been an outspoken guy since he joined the media after his retirement. He has directed a lot of his outspokenness towards one of his former teams, the New York Jets. Yesterday, he was specifically talking about the fans of NY. Hearing the quote, you have to wonder a bit, what Kris Jenkins is talking about.

“I think if the Jets fans knew how much power they had, they might fall back a little bit and not make as much noise,” Jenkins said. “Wherever the mob goes, the organization is going to go.”

Interesting, but an odd point considering nobody wanted Tim Tebow to come here. Does anyone remember headlines saying that the Jets need Tim Tebow? I don’t. Jenkins went on:

“The organization wants to sell tickets. They want to make money, sell merchandise and all of that. If the fans feel a certain way, the organization is going to be accommodating to them to a certain degree,” Jenkins said. “That’s going to affect how things are working in-house. That’s going to affect decisions that are made.”

    I will admit that I did want Favre back in the day and even though short term we lost out (Pennington went on to have a career year), long term we were better off (Pennington wasn’t winning us a super bowl in 2008, got hurt again in 2009, and 2008 playoffs=no rex ryan).
    But with Tebow?  I agree wholeheartedly.  I still have trouble explaining the move to non Jet fan friends of mine.  I basically tell them “you’re asking me to explain something that I didn’t want and still don’t understand the rationale behind”

      I never wanted Tebow and still get it, although I really hope they know what they are doing, and therefore prove us wrong.

      As far as Favre, I hated it too. I actually have more faith in Pennington than most. I think he would have had a better year with the Jets than Favre did, and the way they treated Pennington was ridiculous. He was a good performer for the Jets, and they should have at least showed enough respect to his ability to trade him out of the division.

      Thanks for reading, I always appreciate your comments.
