Interesting note off of KFFL:

Falcons | Jenkins earning the trust of Vick
Wed, 9 Aug 2006 09:15:27 -0700

Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Falcons WR Michael Jenkins has earned the trust of QB Michael Vick by stepping up so far in camp to fill the void created by WR Brian Finneran's injury. Jenkins has noticeably improved in practice and has been catching the ball more with his hands than his body, a skill he lacked last season. "He's earned my confidence," Vick said. "I'll throw it to him in any situation right now."

If this is so,...if Jenks gets the attention and then draws the safety over? Guess who'll burn a corner one on one with a simple pump fake?

how many wide open drops did Jenks have last year?

what about the one in the endzone in Chicago?

the dude got open ALL the time. he has hands of stone unfortunately.

how do you go through 3 yrs of college and 1 yr of pro ball and still catch the ball with your body?

Because you play in the Big 10 and stand 6-4 and can run a 4.5 40, you don't need to have great hands to make plays.

Pump fake? We better have Schaub in for that one... How can you go through college and five NFL seasons and not know how to pump fake (Vick)?

Vick used to pump fake in college. Helped on a lot of the deep bombs to Andre Davis. It worked too b/c everyone's always peeking in the backfield to see if he's gonna take off or not.
