    I thought I seen a glimpse of him on a kick return but wasn't quite sure. But we need to find him and have him be the number 3 reciever.

    Jones not really getting it done. Adams needs fine tuning as well. Montster needs to get healthy.

    And more janis....

    I have no faith Rodgers would get him the ball if he was wide open standing by himself.

    You know, clearly Janis lacks polish at this point, no doubt. But here's the bottom line: when he's on the field, good things tend to happen. Let him run some fly routes to open things up underneath. Someone has to go with him and if he burns his man, they will have to supply safety help. Then give him the occasional drag route and let him use his feet. With the two kick returns the past two games, he has proven himself a legit threat with the ball in his hands. Not only is he fast, he's strong and breaks tackles.

    Get Montgomery and Quarless back healthy and start using Janis in whatever capacity possible and things will change.

    Adams needs to be bumped down the depth chart. For all the talk of players needing Rodgers' "trust" I can't for the life of me figure out why Rodgers continues to trust Adams.

    Rodgers has to get over that trust issues and give the receivers a chance to make plays. With Abbrederis and Montgomery injured Hanis is by far the best option for the offense to show some different looks and use his speed to open up the passing game. It's mind-boggling the coaching staff hasn't used him more often.

    In my opinion it is approaching more along the lines of idiotic, moronic, preposterous, asinine, foolish, absurd, inane, well you get the point...

    For a guy that suddenly can't hit the broad side of a barn, there should be no talk about "trust" with receivers and a lot of talk about what the team can do differently. But it is the Packers and McCarthy, nothing will change. Not this year anyway.

    I know right. Give this guy a shot. He cannot be worse than Adams at this point for route running. When he was in the game ether by returning Kicks or actually being a receiver he did good stuff. We dont know what we got if he cannot see the field on a regular basis.

    Rodgers wanna keep tossing the ball to some lame joe Adams who cannot run a route to save his life but wont give this new guy a chance SMH..

    My vote again Janis on KO's and corner or safety 3rd down D'back he's tall and could disrupt a passing game with his presence and could be a match up with taller opposing receivers wth his speed, besides he is on special teams and covers KO's, at this point why not.....

    Yeah, give Janis a chance. We won't be missing Adam's 1-2 catches, 2-3 dropped passes and 3-4 lousy routes run per game! May renew Adam's zest for the game with a seat on the sidelines.

    Putting janis in at receiver sounds too much like the right thing to do. On them kick offs sheesh that man clearly looks faster then the product we have starting at receiver right now.

    What's the worst that could happen if Janis is in on most passing plays? Multiple 3-and-outs? No touchdowns? Rodgers getting sacked? Oh wait...that's happening already.

    Seriously...this kid at least deserves a shot. If he fails miserably, then don't put him on the field. BUT..you never know...he could "hit" on something and turn out to be an exceptional receiver if given a fair chance. Only way to know for sure is by getting him snaps.

    Janis has had 2 receptions all year on offense. With those receptions he gained 79 yards. He is a quick WR that really reminds me of a Jordy Nelson in a sense. I would hope the coaching staff takes this player into more consideration. He should certainly be getting more looks than second year Davante Adams. Especially after that horrific thursday night.

    Adams has been given more than a fair shot to succeed and he has not seized that opportunity. It's time to see what somebody else can do. Experience is something awfully hard to come-by while sitting on the bench.

    I have been a bit higher on janis than most here. Before da Montster was drafted, I thought janis was going to evolve into da man. Said many times if jord y were to go down, janis would fill in nicely. Same skills imo. Apparently Janis has more work with routes than I believed he needed. All said and done, I wouldn't have brought in Jones if I was calling the shots. Cobb, Adams, janis, Montgomery seemed fine to me. Abby backing up in emergency time since he can't stay healthy, seemed logical.
    Anyways. I think it's time to give janis enough plays that teams don't know it's a streak. Give the guy a chance!!!!!

    Last night Adams cost Rodgers something he despises, which is an INT. We will see where his trust lies now. Janis needs to play, bottom line. His speed alone will allow Cobb to do what he is good at, which is being an effective slot receiver. Teams will have to play Janis's speed which will require over the top safety help. Jordy's loss hurt more than we would have imagined it would. I firmly believe Janis will be a playmaker and a stud in the NFL, whether it be on the Packers or elsewhere.

    I agree. It's kind of baffling to me that they haven't used Janis more. At this point they really have nothing to lose. Adams is terrible. I can't believe Janis would be worse.

    Janis was not in on the final Hail Mary? I saw Abby, Cobb, RR, and Davante. I assume the one I didn't catch a number on was Jones. Or did I miss him somehow?

    Nope you got it. Which seems kinda interesting you wouldn't put your tallest most athletic wr in on that play. Not very smart but it worked out.

    Heard a comment on talk radio questioning why Detroit didn't have Megatron back - hadn't thought about it, but considering the situation, it does make some sense.

    Just find it curious that our tallest, fastest, most athletic WR can not be trusted to run to the end zone, turn around, locate and catch a Hail Mary pass.
