Those naming Jenkins a bust and calling for Baalke's head are the same people that wanted him out of the organization prior to 2011. They're irrational and need to subconsciously justify their dead wrong opinion of him.
I'll take those first two over the second two every day of the week...although you speak the truth that it is irrational to call any rookie a bust. Jenkins could end up a superstar, or a bust.
Watt was probably the most impactful defender in Week One of the NFL. The Texans were struggling, and he makes back to back tips that ended up in interceptions. It completely turned the game around. Goes on to add two more deflections, and 1 1/2 sacks. He is on his way to another stud year, and at this pace will be All-Pro at the end of the season.
As for Hill, the kid is still learning how to play WR, and with his size and speed, the ceiling is very high. Will surely have ups and downs, as all rookie WR's do, but a stellar first game out of the box is a lot better than a tough outing.
