    For the most part Jones is catching the underneath stuff, but I think the "NFL person" hasn't watched enough tape on Jones.. While he lacks elite top end speed, Jones is very good at finding the holes in coverage and making himself available within the coverage windows across the field.

    Plus he runs very tight routes, so to say he couldn't get open without help is a stretch in my opinion. See Boldin in Arizona... same type of reciever.

    Credit our personnel dept. and our coaches for identifying a player that would fit our scheme.

    He also didn't do too badly filling in for Gregorious, considering he was a rookie playing in his first two games of the year. That is what impressed me most, the way he stepped up in the first two games of the year.

    He's quietly having a solid year. He's a good character guy too. Ted has done a good job of acquiring good character guys.

    Am delighted with JJ's play this year.
    If you go back and check out his senior highlights on youtube at san jose state you'll see hes everything that he displayed then plus alot more. He burned Champ Frickin Bailey for christ sakes!! :D

    Yeah. The PFW guy's a moron. JJ finds ways to get open. Good WRs do that.

    And he's ummmmm... a rookie? Sure, he's probably not Calvin Johnson, but rookies almost never play this well in year one. Especially not guys who were supposed second-day draft picks that the Packers "reached" for in the 3rd round.

    Get open........catch..........and run! He's doing that! What more can you want from your rookie WR?
    I like the guy! And since the Bears game, he's been securing the ball well.

    I think James Jones can beat a guy one and one on the outside. Perhaps this guy missed Jones taking Champ Bailey to the house. Jones is a crafty route runner. Even now I find it hard to believe that he's being overlooked. These are nice words about him but this guy seems to think it has more to do with the play design and the players around him than Jones himself. Which I don't agree with.

    Well, Jones came into an optimal situation. Rookies that are second on the depth chart have a ton on their shoulders, those that are the third or fourth won't get that many chances. Since Brett throws a bajillion times a game, Jones is getting chances.

    Not to mention he is a quality WR.

    I have been mulling it over in my head all week.. yep took up most of my brain power, however I digress... Who will have the most impact within the Packers offense past Favre...

    I think it will be Jones with the routes across the middle of the field.

    Or maybe Lee.... Robinson might break out for a huge game..... ughhh!


    Is it flippin Game time yet.

    He's great hands.

    I know he got stripped a couple of times but when Brett flips him the rock he very seldom ever misses the catch.
