Time to Get Amped Up About Jeff Janis, We Suppose…

Jeff Janis

We know you love your white wide receivers there in Green Bay. So, Jeff Janis! Woooooooo!

Yeah, that’s right. Everyone is getting real fired up about Janis, a 2014 seventh-round pick, this week. Odd for a guy who has been inactive for the first three games of the season.

Like, maybe this is his week!

The media and fans alike have suggested that Janis is just what the Green Bay Packers need to spark their craptacular passing game. You know, because he’s fast.

Jeff Query fast, we bet.

And, all the receivers not named Jordy Nelson have been doing next to nothing, so what the hell? Throw Janis in there! He couldn’t really make fewer plays than those other clowns!

Today, the plot thickened. Jarrett Boykin — one of those aforementioned receivers who have done nothing — is suddenly listed as questionable on the injury report.

Well, surely Janis will get the opportunity to have his breakout game this week!

Yeah… we have our doubts.

First of all, we’ve been through this before.

During week 1, nose tackle Letroy Guion played like absolute shit. Well, of course our knee-jerk reaction was to call for Kelly Hayes’ boy Mike Pennel, who was inactive for that Seattle game.

Sure enough, the Packers activated Pennel for week 2. Did he play any snaps? Not that we noticed. Then he went right back to being a game-day inactive in week 3.

Look at the Packers’ game-day inactive lists this season. They’re littered with rookies. That’s not to say the team won’t activate one of those guys, but if Pennel is any indication, they either won’t play the guy or they’ll play him very little.

Second of all, Janis doesn’t have the vaunted Aaron Rodgers’ seal of trust.

Seriously, this is apparently a thing.

Janis is a rookie and as such, he doesn’t always run the right routes or run the routes exactly how Rodgers wants him to run the routes. Therefore, any one of the Packers media flacks will tell you — Janis does not have Rodgers’ trust.

And if you don’t have Rodgers’ trust, Rodgers will not throw you the damn ball regardless of how you can help the team. He’ll just force it to Jordy again. Jordy has his trust.

So hey, maybe Janis will be active this week. Maybe he’ll even make an appearance on the field with the offense. We highly doubt he’ll be getting the chance to make any sort of game-breaking plays though.

      You bad with humor…?

        there’s humour, and then there’s pissing and moaning like a little bitch. This article is definitely the latter.

    Man you got a shot in on everyone in this post including but not limited to fast white guys that can jump.

    I thought we should have activated Janis for the Lions but that time is past. I would be surprised if Boykin is not ready that Janis would not be activated if he is not a ST liability. I do not believe Janis will have as much benefit against the bears as he would have had against the lions. I hope Janis does get some plays on O. We need to see if Janis will be an improvement over Boykin. Up to now the powers that are in charge must not believe Janis is an upgrade. Janis just needs to make McCarthy and Rodgers not forget about him by making a play if it comes his way.

    I think Bostick (if he gets to play?!)and Quarless will be more important in the passing and running game against the bears than a fourth receiver.

    A lot of truth here. AR’s more worried about who is going to make the sure catch for 6 yards and keep his QB stats looking good, than who’s got a chance to make a splash play and drive a dagger through the heart of the pricks in the other uniforms.

    Rodgers is starting to show signs of early onset of ‘Favre Disease’ – shitty results, prima-donna attitude, way too much commercial exposure, and the big fuck you to anyone that dares question him.

    Well, AR, to turn your shit around on you, I got one word for you. P-R-O-D-U-C-E. Start earning that mountain of cash, and everyone will relax, fuckhead.

    It’s like JSOnline, except with more cussing.

      First of all, there’s this thing on this site called a reply button. You should try it. It saves all the bytes you waste replicating the comment you’re directing your witty rejoinder towards, braintrust.

      Second, have something to say. JSOnline? You have no idea what you’re getting into here. Meat eaters visit here, Poindexter.

      Now go put away your AR crush book. He needs to get his attitude back to where he’s tolerable to listen to and his play on the field to where it’s tolerable to watch. Every fan has a right to expect excellent play in return for $22MM a season.

      See, no cussing. Happy now?

        HAHAHA. This was awesome to read first thing on Sunday morning. Couldn’t agree more savage.

        I think he just P-R-O-D-U-C-E-D, you fucking idiot.
