pump your brakes zombie,

Jones has shown to be much improved this season, and is playing out of his mind right now.

But Last year Jones was being dogged by alot of people for good reason. and remember, it's been 4 years since the "'07 model" and never in that time was he playing like this.

he's had a good 8-game stretch, alot of players have had those and not much else.(Finley 2010, Grant 2007)

while we should be excited for him right now, we can't be above calling this a fluke just yet.


Might be a situation like with Dez Bishop. Once he started to get a little more playing time, he stopped making mistakes and settled in.

Yes. In 2007, he had games started, something he hadn't really had since.

Code:

2007 	16 	9 	47 	676 	14.4 	2 	79
2012     9 	9 	36 	401 	11.1 	7 	49


The first number is games and the second one is games started. Since '07, the most he's ever started was 3 besides this year. So I think there's something to what you're saying. If so, he needs to be the starter (as he will be if Gregorious goes elsewhere).

James has been so consistent. (To have) 12 touchdowns, and he’s had some remarkable catches, but it makes me feel good when a guy runs off the field after a game in Chicago and says, ‘Hey, make sure you look at that film and see how many times my guy I was blocking made the tackle,’. I think he’s really completed his game and he’s doing all the little things. He’s had a lot of production obviously catching the ball, scoring touchdowns, but he’s doing a much better job of run blocking and things like that. He’s having an excellent year.

Hope Ted Thompson can find a good #4 in the draft. You know Ted will be looking for a WR. I'm not very impressed with Boykin so far.


The Packers already have all the players they need for next year for WR. Driver is a very capable #4 even if Ted Thompson doesn't draft someone that can immediately fill this role.

Agreed... I think one of those players is also Boykins. He has the length, hands and potential to become a threat in this offense.

Too often we expect players to produce right away.. sometime, it does take time to get comfortable and start to apply their potential.
