Josh Jones is High Strung

Safety Josh Jones hasn’t made the impact most people thought he would during his rookie season with the Green Bay Packers. Outside of a 12-tackle, two-sack performance against Cincinnati, Jones hasn’t done much.

On the season Jones has 28 tackles and those two sacks.

With Morgan Burnett out against New Orleans — and while playing 52 snaps — Jones turned in just three tackles. What he was most noted for in that game was his three special teams penalties.

That’s where the high-strung comment came from.

“Josh, he’s high-strung,” special teams coordinator Ron Zook said. “He wants to play well, he wants to do a great job. I think that’s what you want, you want a guy to do that.

“Once again, we’ve got to keep him calmed down. Just do your job, don’t try to get outside of yourself. Once again, you’d rather be able to shut it down a little bit than have to turn him up. That’s the one thing about Josh: You don’t have to speed him up.”

I find that rather comical.

What’s the proper cliche? Let the game come to you?

Jones isn’t the Packers’ lowest-rated safety at this point in the season, however. PFF has Kentrell Brice slightly lower than Jones’ 40.5, at 40.0. Not surprisingly, Morgan Burnett leads the way with an 85.2, which is 14th overall. According to them, he’s the only Packers’ safety playing well, as Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (69.1) and Marwin Evans (66.2) fall into the average range.

    No…just a polite way of saying he’s a grown man that’s unable to control his emotions

    Another Cadaver Ted draft bust. Usually its projects & Injuries, now its also “High Strung Poor Play”

      Jesus christ dude, it has been not even half a season. You are the worst type of fan out there.

      I mean, what is the point of being a fan if a player will be declared a busy after 7 games. Sure good thing the giants decided that Landon Collins wasn’t a bust after his first season. Good thing the Falcons decided Favre was a bust. I remember when fans here wanted Bahktiari to be cut.

        I remember when Ted traded up and drafted Bahktiari’s replacement, until of course….they some him play….lol. Then Bahk get’s signed to a new deal.

    Not to Worry?? McSlob will get that “CLEANED UP”. Maybe Fat Mike can sweep Lambeau Field during bye week?? He is always into cleaning. After 12 years you’d think everything should be spotless
