On Monday, Orlando Scandrick made clear to the media that there was no controversy between he and Mike Jenkins. In fact, the two are friends, have been friends for a long time, and any word to the contrary is merely part of our ongoing, Lex-Luthor-style attempts to destroy the Dallas Cowboys and any hopes they may have--ONCE AND FOR ALL (Insert evil villain laugh).
Anyway, Mike Jenkins echoed his BFF's sentiments today, saying that not only is there no controversy, there's no competition between the two competing corners--but there is--sort of. I guess.
"The competition thing, I don't know where that comes from," Jenkins said. "I don't know who made it a competition. I just think it's blown up more than it needs to be."
This came shortly before the University of South Florida product delivered a screed on the ubiquity of competition in professional football. And if Jenkins can cover receivers nearly as well as he confuses writers, a trip to Hawaii might be in order next February.
Asked about the kind-of-controversial blog post--ambiguously titled My Job To Keep-- in which he said the spot opposite Terence Newman was his to lose (or keep, I suppose), Jenkins said, "Competition continues during the offseason too.
" Anybody can say that [it's] their job to lose. Whether [Scandrick's] at the two spot. Whether he's at the one spot. Whether he's at the three spot, it's his job to lose. Nobody's really set in stone coming in."
