Would you bring back Kelly Jennings to play nickel?

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • I know he got beat consistently badly on the outside, but he was always in the receivers hip pocket.

    Would he be ok in the slot against smaller pass catchers?

  • Even if he was decent enough in coverage he's not physical enough in the run game to play nickel.

  • I would not bring back Jennings to bring water to the players when they are coming off the field for timeouts, let alone step onto the field.

  • If Jennings were just a little more physical, I'd not have a problem if they brought him to camp, but he has no ball skills and is a wuss. Sadly, he ain't qualified.

  • Only if we bring back Aaron Curry to take over for Leroy Hill too.

    I dont understand the desire on this site lately to bring back our old crappy players. Especially given that our current front office has shown an amazing ability to find great players in cheap places.

  • Meh. He's probably be kinda serviceable, but we have better guys on the roster already. Lane &/or Maxwell will be manning that position next season and will probably do a damn fine job of it.

  • Well, everyone agreed that Jennings could cover like glue but he just couldn't finish. Who knows, maybe he could learn from Richards coaching and leech off some swagger from the LOB. Also steroids.

    They considered that before moving on to life after Jennings. I think Kelly is strickly a perimeter receiver that stuggles with physical receivers.

  • I think Jennings was a decent cover corner. The problem was that he had no ball skills and he was eaten a live by more physical WRs. Kind of pointless to run stride for stride with your opponent when you do nothing to stop them from making the catch.

    No way he would survive on this team.

    Two guys I have no reason why people thought they were ever good. I still remember people being upset about Josh Wilson being traded. Couldn't believe it. It was right up there with people being upset when Tapp got traded.

  • No. Not that I hate him like many around here, but we have better, younger options already here. Plus, it's easier to draft someone come April.

    It's more of a "what's the point" kind of question to me.

    Dude. Curry is horrible and if I'm not mistaken out of the league right now.

    But, but, he was the best player available! We said screw drafting for needs, we draft the BPA. Cuz with Ruskell's godlike talent evaluations skillz he has to know who the BPA is.

    Well, except for Hutch who he was too stupid to hang onto. But who needs a guard right?

  • Jennings did have god coverage skills and that worked for a while until QB's and QC's realized he made zero attempt to play the ball. He was simply a shadow that spooked QB's into thinking their receiver wasn't open.

    Like has been said, Jennings is not physical enough to play the nickle spot where he would be asked to support the run defense. He would probably spook QB's from time to time thinking their guy was covered but once they again figure him out, the QB's will simply ignore that Jennings is even there.

  • Jennings not only couldn't tackle and he never looked for the ball, playing defense in the slot is more than just being fast, just because you're guarding slot receivers doesn't mean you don't need ball skills, you have to be able to break up passes often times when face-guarding a receiver. Horrible idea.
