Boy do I wish this was the norm and not the exception at the receiver position with the established players.. it is a relief from the "me" first crowd.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- James Jones is apparently the anti-Mike Wallace. Of the 21 complete passes thrown by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Week 1 of the regular season, none of them were caught by Jones. Unlike Wallace, whose one catch in his Miami Dolphins debut had him upset, Jones wasn't worried about his role -- or lack thereof -- in the Packers' offense after one game.

"There isn't anything to yap about," Jones said Wednesday in the locker room. "We're just trying to win. I'd be real selfish if I came in here and had an attitude or something."

Jones led the NFL in touchdown receptions last season with 14, which was twice as many as the previous career best in his first five seasons. Jones only had one game in 2012 in which he didn't post any catches.

"No big deal," Jones said. "You're not going to get 10 passes every game. The main thing is, just stay the course. Run your route to win. If (Rodgers) doesn't see you, he doesn't see you. If he does see you, he'll get it to you. My main thing is, just run my route to win and if I don't get it, my other teammates are getting it, and we still have a chance to win the game, and we're going to go down there and make some plays."
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

This is one of the reasons Jones remains one of my favorite players.
