    As long as you blame JJ for losing 6 points

    unrelated imo. All the WRs drop balls. Jennings escapes shame for some reason. Nelson sucks. JJ got a TD catch already so Im not going to call for him to be benched like some

    That absolutely cannot happen again later on in the playoffs. Jones and Jennings(they've both dropped TD passes) must make those catches. We can't count on getting away with it again.

    As for McCarthy, I thought he called a good game but I still don't get his clock management at the end of the half. Crosby has a strong leg, get to the 30 and give him a shot.

    Jones should be cut. If you can't catch the big pass, your useless cause every play is a big pass in the NFL.

    Dumbest thing I've read in the 20 minutes I've been apart of this site. Cut? Taking it a little far aren't we?

    I've been saying this for 2 weeks now. Jones needs to be traded (if he has any value) or cut at the end of this season. The guy just doesn't care to play football for this team.

    I still don't understand why he's out there on 3 WR sets, and Jordy's on the bench.

    Yeah, cutting him is a bit much.

    He has talent, he's just inconsistent. Hopefully he becomes more consistent as he gets older and has more playing time. I honestly think he was thinking about how he was going to celebrate when he dropped the pass.

    What's your definition of talent? For a WR, if it's not catching the ball when it hits you in the hands, I'll be damned.

    I feel bad for James, he has had an excellent season but hasn't been too hot the last couple of games.

    He has a serious problem with drops. The talent is clearly there, but the consistency isn't. Too bad, he's a great guy, and his life story is really touching. But I wouldn't bring the guy back.

    I think he is worth signing for a few more years. You can see he is on the brink of being very good, and if you take away a few drops he has 5 more TD's this year. BUT he has to make those big catches or he won't ever be anything. The drops, especially today are driving me crazy but with Driver getting older Jones might have the goods to deliver for a few years. I wouldn't want to let him go and watch him tear it up somewhere else.

    It kills me when he drops passes like the one he dropped, but his TD catch was excellent. I think he needs to get some confidence in himself and stay mentally focused and he could be a great number two receiver for the packers. Heck, he has the talent to be the number one in all honesty. Just needs to get mentally tougher. Hopefully DD and Jennings will give him support and mentor him to help with these mental lapses.

    To his credit, the TD pass was a good catch. I find myself being upset with JJ more than I'm happy, crediting him, or congratulating him. I don't like that.

    He reminds of Braylon Edwards and all of his drops. Talent, but wasting away because of focus issues. A change of scenery worked for him, I just don't want to sit around and wait for JJ to magically turn himself around for us.

    what we should be doing is getting Jordy more touches.
