Leave it to Malcolm Jenkins to cut right to the chase about the Eagles’ 7-9 season. The newly re-signed safety acknowledged that he and his teammates didn’t have the proper mindset last season.
“I think our team was focused on all the wrong things,” Jenkins said during a radio interview on SiriusXM. “I think when you get so caught up sometimes in X’s and O’s, the tempo of your day and getting to all of this stuff, a lot of times you don’t just stop and pay attention to the small things; like, how tight is your locker room?
“I know on defense we were pretty tight. We’d go out every Thursday night for dinner and have fellowship. Our offense wasn’t quite the same. Those things, though, are important. They may sound very, very minute but those are the things you brush over if you’re going through the speed of the season and your routine, you forget about those things.”
