It was nice to see Donald Driver with the TD catch doing his dancing with the stars routine. I have to admit that we have a lot of WRs competing for these spots. I am thinking that Jones should take a seat to Driver after yesterday. Maybe Jones just never got his shot to play WR consistently with the pack and is therefore making mistakes. Unfortunately, he is not a young player anymore and the pack can't sacrifice the time to let him "develop" with new guys waiting to be the Gregarious.


I'd have no problem with that. JJ needs to work on "over the shoulder" and also turning and catching.

Until he masters those skills, he should descend the depth chart, much like Shields did this preseason.

Driver should get more playing time.
He is still a good possession reciever IMO.
A good option on third and short instead of throwing a 60 yard bomb.

That call is still grinding on me.

"Lord of the Dance!"[grin1]
I said all along that DD still had "it!"
I also think he should replace Jones. Maybe it would wake him up that you can't keep making mistakes and still have your spot on the team.
I'd also like to see what Boykin can doo. he was a MONSTER in the preseason.
I just think the coaches want to bring him along slowly. I do believe we will see him in some games this year.

Against Seattle would be nice..or Indy. A game the Packers *should* win and can test the waters with Boykin. At this point, he can't be any worse than James Jones. Not completing your route is a big no no in Mr. Rodgers neighborhood.

according to the gamebook report (page 16) Cobb and Driver were only in there for 29 & 18% of the plays.


Quote:
R Cobb WR 20 29%
D Driver WR 12 18%


Both play the slot most of the time. It is not that DD can't line up wide but I am sure Mike McCarthy prefers him to be the man who goes over the middle. He can do it better than most of the other WR.

Another factor for DD not being on the field as much on Thur is they didn't use the 3 WR as often. With Benson having a good game they had Kuhn or a TE out the to block for him.

Quote:
Kuhn FB 31 46%
T Crabtree TE 27 40%

So the general consensus is to swap Driver into Jones spot in the roster? What is the upside of letting Jones have more snaps then?

I'm just surprised we haven't seen more of DD because there were a number of articles or pieces of articles about the good camp he was having. I definitely have more trust in DD than Jones. It's a long season, might they be saving him more for the end, giving the young receivers a chance to develop more or something else more than what we see on the surface?

I can't speak for everyone else, but I'll be fine with that.

Driver may have had more total drops last year than Jones, but Jones drops the important ones. Like last game, he dropped what should have been a TD pass. Driver caught a TD pass. Driver is also better with running after a catch and is fearless up the middle.

Can you go through and show drop by drop the down and distance for the two? I'd be really interested in seeing those stats.
