They lost some WR depth when Harry went down.

If Jacobe insists on acting like a kid, set him in the corner and make him write 100 times, "I will not fumble, I will hold onto the ball."

Could always have him carry around a waterball like the coaches used to do in High School for guys that fumbled...

So college football has just started and I have been reading up on some games because I am in a pool and have to pick the spread for 23 games this weekend. So far I have seen 2 Jacoby Jones (Baylor, Clemson), there isn't really a point to this at all, just thought it was odd. Maybe they stole our JJ's identity?

I'm not sure about all that but what he doesn't seem to have are hands that find, secure & hold onto the football

Jacoby Jones will make a believer out of all of us in the near future. I think his troubles in the offseason coupled with his lackluster preseason performance will sink in on him and he will renew his work ethic. His personality just reminds me of someone who hates to be seen as second rate. I'm pulling for him. He has the talent to be something special in this league. I'm pulling for you JJ. Don't let us down.

I just dont know about that .....


Something I noticed in the TB game , when he took the initial kickoff it looked like he bobbled it a bit .... Second and on the same play he was swinging his arms out to the side much like a sprinter coming out of the blocks.
He did this again on the first catch he made from Sage , after the nifty move to get away from the defender it looked to me that his arms were moving angularly , away from his body which makes it easier for a defender to knock the ball out.

I'm begining to think that this is his natural movement when running and that its going to take a lot of work both mental and physical to break the habit . For him to stick in the NFL ... He's got to fix it.

This video certainly reinforces this point.
