Let’s say that James Jones may be the only one who has a rosy outlook for the Green Bay Packers at this point. That isn’t to say the Packers can’t turn this season around, but they’ve been playing some uninspiring football thus far.
Injuries, poor throws, dropped balls, slow starts, gravy-headed play calling, crap calls. It all adds up to a perfectly mediocre 2-2-1 football team.
James Jones will not be thrown off this bandwagon, though. You know we love James Jones, but he’s also the guy who picked the Packers to go 16-0 before the season.
The Packers next four games are San Francisco, at the Rams, at New England and Miami. They should win two of those even if they’re not at their best.
It’s those two road games sandwiched in the middle that are the concern. The Rams are probably the best team in the NFL. Great offense and a defense that can dominate. The Patriots are the Patriots.
Nonetheless, James Jones has the Packers winning all four of those games. Not only that, he did a goddam dance about it.
Gotta love JJ! On a side note, did you notice that he was wearing his customary mock turtleneck on the Network last Thursday night?
What’s the temperature outside? Ninety degrees? Alright, let’s queue up the white mock for this game!
