Tim Jennings, time to give this guy a break

For most of his career Tim Jennings has been a favorite whipping boy for Colts fans.  It seemed that any and all problems with the secondary can be attributed to TJ.  If the Colts gave up a big play, it must have been TJ’s fault.  If the Colts lost a game it must have been TJ’s fault, hell if we could we would blame this guy for all the worlds’ problems. 

He has been burnt and has given up some big plays, he has been picked on by opposing QB’s, there is no arguing that, but he’s a CB and those guys get burnt and give up big plays, it happens it’s part of being on the island that is an NFL CB.  Champ Bailey, Darrel Green, Ronny Lott, all are considered great shutdown corners, and all of them have been burnt and given up long TD’s it’s part of the job.

 

This year, Tim is quietly having a good year.  He has been playing quite a bit and playing well.  He is second on the team with 22 tackles and first on the team with 3 passes defended, and hasn’t given up many big plays.  As injuries in the secondary mount, the coaches call on him as the next man up, and he keeps responding by playing solid football.

 

He was drafted by the colts in the 2nd round of the 2006 draft, he has battled injuries during the early part of his career, and that might have stunted his development.  He struggled last year, but seems to have learned a lot from those struggles and is now playing good football.  The only thing left is for the hard core Colts fans to recognize that he is no longer the goat and is now playing like a 2nd round draft pick.  So Colts fans, give this guy some love.
