The Case For Janoris Jenkins

112 posts in this topic

I am dumb because I think going to a Division II team (not FCS like you say) humbles someone. This is the first time I have heard Janoris say, "I'm down with marijuana forever. I can't do it, man."

He did not go to a Division II school as a humbing experience....he went there because he would not have to sit out a year. That decision was made solely for his own benefit.

I do hope he's not down with marijuana forever.

What? I realize why he went there, he wanted to play. But I am saying the aftereffect was an humbling experience.

Oops. Edited now. Must have autocorrected or something.

It is when it's the difference between millions of dollars and an NFL career.

Its proven that Money does not make you be a better person or does it help stop drug problems.

He hasn't had a positive test at Northern Alabama and has had no off field issues. People can change. Saying there's no way he can stop smoking weed is just stupid. And let's be real, smoking weed does not make you a bad person. He has done all he can to prove he's changed and has shown maturity since his departure from Florida.

For a kid to fail a Collage drug test the first time he's not too smart or is an addict. Most every school knows when the test or going to happen and have time to prepare there players. Most NFL teams know players smoke weed and many have failed the combine test but there is a difference between recreational use and not being able to stop. Clearly his was of the latter.

I know the circumstances are a little different, but how many people on this board said picking Cam would be a mistake due to his off-field issues? After Cam was dismissed from Florida, he matured and grew as person. And from what I've read, Jenkins has done the same.

Cams situation was totally different and he never had any drug related problems. Comparing him to Cam is like apples to oranges.

So if you think a lot college and pro players smoke weed and just do a better job of hiding it, why does it matter if Jenkins smokes? Do you know specifically that Florida was aware of the upcoming tests in time to tell Jenkins to stop? And do you actually think NFL coaches are ok with their players smoking weed?

A lot of people have speculated that if Muschamp wasn't the head coach he would have stayed on the team. Not saying people wouldn't have had questions over his character but the whole getting kicked off the team highlighted it a bit more.

Cam never had any drug problems, but both players were punished for off-field issues. Cam was labeled as a trouble-maker with character concerns; someone who was immature and could not be trusted with the #1 pick. The same argument is being made against Jenkins (as a top 10 pick).

Tell me....What did Jenkins probably say to coaches after his first drug bust? What is he saying now? HINT: The same damn things. If you think going undergound to a FCS (I AA) school cured him enough to invest a high pick on him-you are dumb.

Yes, RR can contol him. Shouldn't Rivera be spending his time doing other things? You folks act like we are running a day care-rehab service. Not worth it. In my experience, people on drugs will lie and let you down. EVERY TIME.

Cured him? You do know that marijuana causes no physical or chemical addictions. I know plenty of regular marijuana users, some of them are unreliable people and also do real drugs as well (cocaine, narcotics, excessive alcohol abuse, etc). About half of them however, are very reliable and good people that provide for society. They have successful careers in technology, law and financial services to name a few. They also have families that they care for, provide for and protect.

Fact of the matter is that people are still people. You can point a single aspect of an individual and immediately assume that everyone who possesses that aspect are identical, or you can be realistic and see that some people, despite what they do in their spare time, are good and some are assholes.

Some of you people love to cherry pick and ignore the glaring facts about people.
