lol calm down, dwight jones was going to be on the practice squad this entire year if he impressed enough people in this organization to actually stick around..

i think 90% of this board has very unrealistic expectations regarding these UDFAs.. how many udfas come in year one and contribute to the offense/defense.. a few make the squad and pay dues through special teams involvement.. jones was just another UDFA destined for a season on the PS/IR..

Better to quit now and give someone else a shot than in the middle of TC when the going really gets tough.

He tried to run out from the team, but old man Kubes chased him down and said hold on, let's talk about this later.

Kubiak is a softie. Jones will be back this week after Kubiak sits down with the kid and has an Andy-Opie moment with him.

Once Kubiak brings you into the fold, you have to do 3 years coddled labor as a project WR before being let go. Well, sometimes you get 4 years instead of 3.

Wow! I don't know what kind of family he has, but jeeez.

I've been around kids who were so spoiled growing up, had everything handed to them, that they come to expect everything to be handed to them.

Tragic. Just plain tragic.

Sounds like a QB that signed in Buffalo...Got to Texas, had everything handed to him, then got to the NFL and got his ass handed to him by LBs that were just as fast as he was....

I think everyone needs to back up and remember that Arian had the same sort of emotional adjustment to make. And he didn't get his head on straight until halfway through his first season.

I don't think that Jones will make it. I don't think he'll get his head around what he needs to do to make this team and I don't think he's got the humility to start at the bottom and work his way up.

BUT...

He might.

Unfortunately I think this applies to alot of football players. They get passed along in high school based on their athleticism because they've got a scholarship chance. Then they get to college where their athleticism is again more valued than their maturity, intelligence, and work ethic. When they get to the NFL everything has been handed to them and they're not prepared to work for a living. High School coaches use them and then College coaches use them and no one prepares them for life.

I agree with GP as well, Kubiak is far to soft on players, keeping guys on the roster for years that don't deserve a spot in the team.

Foster wasn't the only one. Anyone remember Darius Walker. He thought he was the shiznit coming out of Notre Dame. Didn't get drafted. Kubiak had to have a heart-to-heart with him before the light went on in his head too.

Not saying the light will ever switch on in Jones' head but its a shame to walk away from an opportunity like that. Foster needs to have a chat with the lad.

Gary is a perfectionist and a workaholic. His expectations of himself are higher than any we fans place upon him. He expects his players to put forth as much effort as he does.

He wont call those players out in the open , in front of teammates or the media but he will chew their ass out in private.

Thats a possibility .... but if the kid "gets it" and turns out a good NFL player , then what do you have to complain about? If he doesnt stick .... what did the team lose ?

Jacoby was servicable as a 3rd WR .... 50+ catches for 17+YPC in 2010. He showed just enough to stick around but was never really able to become more than a 3rd WR.
Had he not been asked to replace #80 , we wouldnt really be complaining - outside of that Ravens debacle ....

Yes , he made boneheaded mistakes .... but he flashed just enough to keep the staff and fans hoping he would figure it out. All world talent , short bus brain.
