    Agree with the logic and grade Chad. He is a good situation receiver and definetely improved his hands from 2010.

    I should mention that him being late to training camp probably had more to due with him being a free agent getting screwed by the new CBA agreement then just playing the free agent market. That and the asinine rules that free agents could be at camp but not practice (I forget the exact legal reasoning behind it).

    McCarthy likes his receivers to play any WR position. The defense, at snap, predetermines where the ball is likely to go to some extent. This combination leads to the idea that given plays put Jones into 3rd-5th reads more often than 1st-3rd (overlap intended). He would then only get the ball when the defense shows one thing and changes post snap, thanks to Aaron’s ability to read the defense.

    This speaks volumes of MMs ability to call plays and move players to get the ball to Jennings, Nelson, and Finley, even though defenses try to shut them down.

    I like James. I’m glad Ted re-signed him. He signed him at a great price too!

    I wasn’t real enthused about GB resigning Jones after watching him drop critical catches against Eagles and Steelers last season that would’ve put both games out of reach for Packers opponents. But after watching him in quite a few games this season, I think James Jones and Jordy Nelson were the two MOST improved players on the team this season.

    I was fine with JJ moving on and not upset with resigning him either.He didn’t hurt us as in the previous year but no way is he so much improved to put him in with Jordy.IMO,this season will be his truest challenge to make or break his higher spot in the WR corps.Driver 80-20 gone,he cannot afford to have Cobb to surpass him,if he does,then say goodbye to JJ at next seasons end.
