Well, look at that. You hand the ball to Aaron Jones. You make him your featured back. Good things happen.
Amazing. Just amazing.
Jones had 43 snaps on Sunday. That was a season high. It is only the second time this season Jones has gotten more snaps than Jamaal Williams.
Jones gained 145 yards on 15 carries and scored two touchdowns on Sunday. That’s 9.7 yards per carry.
It’s delightful that Fat Mike has figured this out.
Other people have already noticed what Jones brings to the table, though. Just like we have.
I asked Byron Bell if he's ever seen another running back hit the line of scrimmage with as much speed as Aaron Jones. This is some serious praise from Bell. #Packers found a gem: pic.twitter.com/UkPcm12e8u
Then I asked Mike Daniels the same question. More lofty praise from Daniels, who noted a similarity between Aaron Jones and Adrian Peterson: pic.twitter.com/KK8NdwDdYi
But it's the rate at which he creates these! Every 4.1 attempts = big play!
Breaks off explosive runs at a higher rate than ANY other top flight RB! pic.twitter.com/AEusIdMK9f
Aaron Jones now has the first two-TD rushing game of his career. If it's not clear by now that the Packers offense must run through him, then it never will be. https://t.co/M53b2ZRSDF
Surely, Jones will only get five carries on Thursday. Totally a Fat Mike thing to do.
