Morning roundup: WR Jones rounds out his game

Dec. 21, 2012
 

The touchdowns have grabbed the attention this season, but the difference in James Jones’ game could be illustrated in one simple interaction following Sunday’s 21-13 win over Chicago.

After catching a career-best three touchdowns against the Bears, the Green Bay Packers’ sixth-year wide receiver stopped to talk to his head coach, Mike McCarthy on his way to the locker room.

As Press-Gazette reporter Rob Demovsky writes, Jones wasn’t about to boast about his game, well, you sort of.

“It makes me feel good when (Jones) 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,’” McCarthy said.

With 12 touchdowns now on the season, Jones still has a lot of goals in front of him. You can read the rest of Demovsky’s story here: http://tinyurl.com/ck7khym

*In our Packers notebook, Press-Gazette reporter Pete Dougherty features the recent struggles of kicker Mason Crosby, but the team’s steadfast approach to correcting him without the help of sports psychologists or kicking gurus (http://tinyurl.com/cpp6wbk).

Dougherty also takes a look at the Packers’ shrinking running-back contingent and the offensive line’s current situation after T.J. Lang and Jeff Saturday didn’t practice Thursday, and Greg Van Roten needing to withdraw with a back injury.
