Former NFL safety Malcolm Jenkins made plenty of memories during his lengthy career, including victories in Super Bowl XLIV and LII. Asked by Kevin Hart in the new episode of Cold as Balls for his biggest memory from winning the title with the Eagles to cap the 2017 season, Jenkins didn’t hesitate.

“I just remember I was upset because, you know, I’m captain of the team, we came on this long-ass journey, win the Super Bowl, I’m thinking, ‘Hey, I’m about to get on the stage and get my moment.’ Give me the trophy, let me hold it up, get all my pictures,” Jenkins told Hart. “I walk to the stairs. Security puts his arm out. I can’t go on stage? No, I can’t. So I go back with the rest of my teammates. Zach Ertz and Nick Foles and them are on stage.”

Jenkins added that he then saw Hart jump a security fence and work his way to the same checkpoint. Hart, despite being more persistent than Jenkins had been, also was unable to get onto the stage.

Jenkins, who eventually got to take pictures with the Lombardi Trophy, didn’t seem to be particularly mad about it, but it’s an intriguing access angle that typically is overlooked. Really, who decides who gets access to the Super Bowl podium and who doesn’t? And shouldn’t team captains always have a ticket to the festivities?

For more from Jenkins and Hart in a pair of tubs filled with ice, here’s the full episode.

  1. Wah Wah Wah….this guy is insufferable. He showed what a tool he was when he went off on Drew Brees…. Don’t go away mad, just go away.

  2. No one cares to hear Jenkins complain about this. Afterall it was his dirty, headhunting hit on Cooks which had more to do with PHL winning the game than people realize.

  3. If that’s what he wanted, that’s what he should’ve been given. Jenkins was a rock on that Super Bowl team. No way they would’ve hoisted that trophy without him that season.

  4. Your comment is awaiting censorship. This is a preview; your comment will be visible after it has been approved by our liberal censors says:

    Of course he was. There was probably 75 people who wanted to get a shot at the podium.

  5. Ha Ha , the last angry man . He refuses to share team leadership with anyone ( must have the last word ).The Birds wanted Wentz to have more of a leadership role after the Super Bowl but he didn’t take too kindly to that , this made the team front office move on from him ; the players responded to the situation with their non-support of Wentz which greased the skids for his departure .
    I’m sure that when he retires Mal will make an excellent community activist .

  6. I remeber his illegal hit in the luckiest sb in the history of the NFL. Should have been a big flag.
