Catching up with WR James Jones

Packers WR James Jones is on pace for 38 receptions, 568 yards and 2 TDs in 2010. The 38 receptions would be the second-most of his career (47 in 2007, 20 in 2008, 32 in 2009). 568 yards would also rank No. 2 (676 in 20078, 274 in 2008, 440 in 2009). However, the season has been an up and down affair as Jones has flourished certain weeks and had game-changing mistakes in others. He caught three passes for 32 yards, including a 30-yard TD, against the Bills (Week 2), had 5 catches for 55 yards at Chicago (Week 3), added 4 catches for 65 yards at Washington (Week 5) and finished with 4 receptions for 107 yards against the Vikings. Jones was held without a catch against the Jets (Week 8 ) and Dolphins (Week 6) and had just 1 against the Lions (Week 4) and 2 at Philadelphia (Week 1). He also lost a fumble with 2:18 remaining in the fourth quarter at Chicago, setting up a Bears game-winning field goal with 8 seconds remaining. Jones made another critical mistake in the third quarter of the Miami loss, allowing Jason Allen to pick off an Aaron Rodgers pass without fighting to knock the ball down. "There's so many weapons on this offense," Jones said. "Some days you can go out there and have 4 or 5 balls and some big gains, and sometimes you can go out there and get two balls or whatever. I really don' t think it has too much to do with me. I just think it's the opportunities that come. Just like Greg (Jennings) will have 130 one game and 10 the next. "It starts with us converting on third down. If we keeps some drives going, then maybe we might get some more opportunities for everybody." So how does Jones evaluate his own performance in 2010? "Right now, it's whatever," Jones said. "I really don't know how to break it down right now. Hopefully it'll get better. "I always feel like I can make more plays.  So you're never going to hear me say I'm satisfied or anything like that. There's always chances out there to get better." What can change, specifically? "Just probably some more opportunities coming my way so I can be able to show myself more," Jones said. "Really, as a player, you can't show yourself if you don't get the ball. So, hopefully I'll get some opportunities."
