    During #Ravens minicamp WR Jacoby Jones had an issue with drops; conversely, Tandon Doss has "perhaps" the best hands on team, via t.site.

    Jones has never been sure-handed, and committed a devastating special teams turnover in Houston's Divisional Round loss last season, muffing a punt. It's not exactly promising that his new team's website is commenting on his hands before camp even begins. Jones has the inside track on Baltimore's No. 3 receiver job, but will make a bigger impact on special teams.

    Looking back at an interview with The Baltimore Sun in June of this year.

    That doesn't mean you don't dwell on CORRECTING your mistakes.

    More drops with less opportunities??????:kitten:

    Jacoby was one of those guys that aggrevated me moreso than others on this team.

    The dude had natural talent, he just squandered it. I think if he would have tried to be more of a student of the game and less cocky, he probably could have had a much better career up to this point.

    In my opinion, he comes across as one of those guys that "you can't tell nothin' to". They hear the advice, but it doesn't resonate. That in itself will be the reason he never takes his game to the next level. I don't know about his work ethic, but he should be using one of those football shooter thing-a-ma-jigs to catch footballs for about 6 hours a day in the offseason. Non-stop.

    I think he's saying that the Ravens suck. He's going to try to do more with less talent around him, LOL. :kitten:

    I'm hoping for a more polished, professional, hardworking, good hands WR with this years 2012 third round selection Posey. From a draft point of view Jacoby came out of a small school, flashing speed & acceleration. Posey came from a big program, displayed consistent route running ability & solid catching technique. Big upgrade on Texans part.

    He still has his excellent route running ability to fall back on.

    Mental toughness (which may just be Jacoby's way to approach, antics & cocky nature aside) preparing for contact & getting $hit knocked out over middle or in return situations. In NFL people make a living going at it both ways, must be not only physically gifted but a little crazy & fearless @ same time. Just look at changes to kick-off rules trying to dumb down chance of players to sustain serious injury, making accepting punt return inside 10 probably the biggest kill point in games that can quickly turn into disaster both personally & sway outcome of game.

    This might mark the decline of the Ravens. Every team who is known to be really good at player acquisition--and the Ravens are tagged as such--finds a way to unravel and lose sight of what made them great.

    I am wondering if this is the first plunge into the Nestea pool of "mediocrity" by the Ravens. Once you start drinking your own Kool Aid, you can slip up and take it too easy. I even think the Steelers are on the verge of this same thing too.
