I am concerned about James Jones. He seems to have the dropsees this year. Last night he dropped a key pass and it was the last one he saw all night (I think)

Right now it looks like Nelson has taken over the #3 spot. When is Ruvie back?

I thought I heard he got nicked up again.. maybe I am wrong.. but yes he seems to lapse into voids in concentration at times.. but that dude is a monster when he is on.

James Jones has a sore knee, it seems to have gotten worse than prior to the game, or something. Ruvell Martin was inactive for the game, so we had 3 receivers the entire game, with Driver, Jennings and Nelson.

No way would I put Nelson ahead of Jones. Jones = waaaaay better

JJ is solid. He's hurt. Might have to put a #6 WR on our 53 man roster. We have only 5 there, right?

At least Nelson held onto the ball. Jones didn't have a catch all night (and at least two drops that I saw).

I like him and I think that he's going to have a good year, but he's either got to get healthy or pull his head out - whichever is affecting his game the most.

I THOUGHT WR was our strongest area.......doesn't look like it anymore. A few injuries, and we are in big trouble already.

A few injuries will deplete any strength on any team. Not just our team, not just our WR group.

We'll be okay at WR. I'm more concerned with our defense than the offense.

Me too.....with the injuries, our D is up a creek. Which again puts the pressure on our O to try to keep up with other teams.
Not a good situation, all around.

Jones is dropping passes and he is also running the wrong routes in several plays, I'm very concerned too.

I think people should not react too soon. We did just play the best offense in the NFL. They put up 40 pts in both of their first two games and we gave up 27 pts to them.

I'm no worried with James Jones, he looks like a guy who isn't totally healthy and is a little rusty. With our depth, we can afford to stick him 4th or 5th and let him heal up.

I read that Jones re-injured his knee very early in the game. That's why he couldn't finish the game, and it very well may have affected his concentration as well as his ability to get open. On one play the defender got his hand in there to knock the ball out. It was not a drop. I don't remember if he actually had any drops.

I think James Jones will be a great receiver for the Packers for years to come. I'm not going to get concerned because he had one bad game when he was playing hurt.

This makes me wonder ... do players let this bother them? "should i play 80% and take what comes or sit out and come back full strength?"

The coaches could think just like some of you. He can't catch, can't get open and what not.

An 80% James Jones is better than a 100% Jordy Nelson, notwithstanding Nelson's little game of pitch-and-catch with Aaron Rodgers against a prevent defense near the end of the game. So they did the best they could with Jones. It didn't work out, unfortunately. Sometimes you just don't know until you try.

WR's sometimes have troubles catching the ball. Losing focus easily can lead to many drops. I played WR in High School and I never dropped a ball, but sometimes you go through slumps where the things you normally can do, just seem impossible. JJ will be fine.
