Yea, but based on Kubs history and his benching of players like Foster, Dwight did not impress the boss

"Steal of the draft, Dwight Jones, the next Andre Johnson, you looking at him, 6'4, 230" - Dwight Jones.



Andre's gonna have to have a word with the supposedly next coming of him.

EDIT: and his bold prediction was that he would be starting this year.

i like his size and speed, if he can get his head out of his ass he might turn out to be a damn good player for us.

Default Re: UDFA, Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina

The problem with a guy like this is IF he ever makes some plays and becomes a fringe player who then gains momentum and starts looking good...you're going to see the dysfunctional stuff creep out and splatter all over anything and anyone in his path.

If he produces, the stuff will be tolerated, and then he graduates up to bigger drama and then it ruins everything else including himself.

He needs to hush his mouth and show that he wants to play, not mouth a lot. I get it that he's excited and has confidence...but dude, you weren't even drafted FOR A REASON. And the reason might be your personality. I'm just saying....

The funny thing is...the next Andre Johnson would have never said anything like that. He would have simply went out there, won a starting job, and competed for OROY. No talking about it before hand, just doing it.

AJ is a role model, not a life coach. Dwight needs someone who will keep him in check when he's not with the team. Maybe his mom will come to Houston and take care of him while he's here?

Probably not. He's like one of the teenage contestants who makes the cut for American Idol. They think they have already won the whole thing, and they haven't even been on the show for one episode yet.

I actually think Gary brought him on board to make me quit bitching about the Posey pick.

I doubt Dwight Jones is the first kid who enterred professional sports and said dumb things. That can be corrected. I'm more concerned about why he seemed to just give up after his regular season or maybe just before it ended. If we gave JJ 5 years, I am cool with Jones for a year at least. He is dealing with a lot of emotion with now knowing that no NFL team thought he was worth drafting. I wonder how each of us would deal with that if it were us? I'm glad we signed him and I do think he will turn it around but then I thought same about Jacoby.

People have different personalities. Everybody isn't going to be as docile with the media as Aj is.

I could care less about what he says. His actions on the field is what matters to me.

Didn't know that mattered. It still came off as cocky. If you ask Andre who is the best WR in the NFL and he'll tell you Calvin Johnson. Didn't matter if he was asked the question.

He was asked to make a bold prediction and that was his. I have no problem with it. He better back it up, or he is gone. Let him talk. Doesn't mean he is a bad locker room guy because he is confident in himself. Yates probably vouched for him.

What did people expect him to say when asked this?

When you're an UDFA there's going to be certain amount of self promotion. Yes, we've gotten spoiled with certain guys namely Foster being an UDFA, but let's be realistic, not many UDFA make it big. Most are camp fodder. If, very big IF, Jones makes it onto the roster come start of the season it's going to be a long shot.

The big question is this this self confidence vs entitlement to a roster spot? Guess we'll find out in the coming months.

I really don't care too much either way what he says...I mean I'm a big Arian Foster guy.... I just found it funny who he was comparing himself to while saying that.

Also though I can't blame people for seeing a red flag considering his position. A lot of arrogant WRs have walked onto teams and messed things up.

In the interview, Dwight made the Andre Johnson comparisons on his own. As soon as the words came out of his mouth, you could tell the radio hosts knew they struck gold in terms of material to work with.

When they asked him to make a bold prediction later on, he went with that he'd start in his rookie year.

But the Andre Johnson comparisons, the reference in third person, correcting his misinformed 40 times by 0.3 seconds, and the constant mentions of his measurements are things that can rub even the casual fan the wrong way

Wow. I'm going to have to listen to the interview. Sounds like it's cringe worthy though. He's going to have a hard time making the team if he doesn't grow up.
