More from Malcolm Jenkins on Orlando Scandrick: “For us to move on as a team, we can’t have motherfuckers like that in the room.” https://t.co/wMZfMc4qSc— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) October 25, 2019
Malcolm Jenkins says now that he knows this about Orlando Scandrick, he said it feels good to have him off the team. #Eagles— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroNBCS) October 25, 2019
Malcolm: "How long was he here?"— Reuben Frank (@RoobNBCS) October 25, 2019
"I don't think that's long enough to know our team."
Some of the things that Scandrick said about Jenkins just weren’t true.
For example, Scandrick suggested that Jenkins didn’t take responsibility for blowing a coverage in the Eagles’ Week 7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. But he absolutely did.
Jenkins has a track record of taking blame when he’s at fault. He took responsibility when he blew a coverage on the first play of the Eagles’ game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2 last season (DeSean Jackson touchdown).
Scandrick’s assertion that Jenkins isn’t “really making any plays, like splash plays” is also absurd. Jenkins had a big pass breakup and an even bigger blocked field goal against the Lions in Week 3 that should’ve allowed the Eagles to win that game.
It’s no surprise that Jenkins wasn’t too fond of Scandrick’s comments. There could be some truth to some of the things that Scandrick said. But some of it was simply off base.
Just another drama-free week heading into a game that the Eagles really need to win!
