What Does Mike McCarthy Think About Playing Jeff Janis?
Everyone keeps asking the question. Why don’t the Green Bay Packers give Jeff Janis more opportunities?
There have been several theories presented, from Janis being too dumb to grasp the offense to his inability to play mistake-free football.
Well, it’s gotten to the point where no one gives a crap about any of those theories anymore. Everyone, it seems, wants to see Janis on the field, except for the Packers coaching staff.
And with Davante Adams shitting the bed week after week, maybe we’ll all eventually get our wish.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy was asked about playing Janis more in the wake of Adams’ continued struggles.
Here’s what he had to say.
“Jeff Janis is coming on. There’s no doubt about it. Jeff has been given some big play opportunities and he’s converted some. It started on the kickoff returns and the deep ball — last week’s pass interference — and some scramble, extended plays, but there’s certain things… each receiver has a skill set that fits a certain part of the offense. So I would look at Davante and Jeff a little differently as far as how you would utilize them or where you would play them. Jeff will definitely get more opportunities.”
Two things we took note of there.
First, the Packers may finally be ready to give Janis more playing time on offense. And why not?
He couldn’t put up numbers any worse than James Jones’ 0-fer on Thursday.
Second, Janis will not be replacing Adams in the lineup.
We found it funny that McCarthy mentioned that he looks at Adams and Janis differently, however. We also look at Adams and Janis differently.
We see Adams as a flaming pile of shit and Janis as a total unknown.
Might as well as least see if he has anything to offer.
