On Tuesday, the safety directed his anger toward his own team, questioning teammates’ demeanor during the loss. Jenkins said it’s one thing to get beat while fighting back, but another to submit to the pounding.
“It was one of those things that I didn’t feel like as a team we had a lot of fight. I’d rather get thrown out of a game then just lay down and take it. And it was a ton of frustrations.
One being obviously me going back to New Orleans. That’s a game that meant a lot to me. But just the demeanor of the team really bothered me, and then just the frustrations of having guys that you work hard with and spend a lot of time with get injured.
It’s just a rough day overall, but at this point in time we need to figure out some things about ourselves.”
Malcolm Jenkins: "When a team jumps on you…and things get rolling, you find out a lot about yourself. You’re going to get blown out regardless. You’re either going to get blown out swinging or you’re going to get blown out laying down. And I think you had a little bit of both.”

This was the largest margin of defeat ever by a reigning Super Bowl champion. I think that says it all.
