Could we deactivate M. Jones?

100 posts in this topic

no way Foxy deactives Jones imo. Jones has played solid in area we have lacked in for years now. Fox imo doesn't have much faith in either Hackett or Jarrett at this point. Based on what Fox said on Sirius NFL radio this past week......I fully expect Hackett to be our #3 WR w/ Jarrett being deactivated.

Your hypothetical is really invalid. It's all well "what if" scenario's. You can't assume we'll be down by 14 and activate players accordingly, not very good coaching strategy if you ask me. Why mix things up in big games? He's had more time back there than anyone else on the roster.

Ok...who returns for us then?? So you say Stewart.....you wanna risk one of our dynamic duo in our running game, to get 4 receivers out there.

We aren't that deep at RB nimrod!

Jesus H. Christopher........I know I didn't just read that ignorant suggestion.

You have to play your best players in playoff games. I know that it's a hypothetical situation but what if it does happen as a coach you have to be prepared for it. What you are saying is that it can't happen so we shouldn't be prepared for it, real smart. Yes Stewart could get hurt nut I trust Williams to carry the ball without any help. At the same time Smith could get hurt playing WR and you would be happy only having two Wr to throw to, again very smart. You need to look at all angles because we can't afford to not be prepared for all situations because if we are not we will be sitting at home the following week.

Jones is our best returner, so by that logic...

Yea I don't understand why people automatically assume a good player playing on special teams will just magically get hurt, or is more prone to getting hurt while doing that than his normal position.

Plus I would rather Williams get 95% of the carries this postseason anyway. May as well give Stewart his carries on ST.

No, Jones is a playmaker on ST. Plus Jarrett should be activated for the game anyways... averages 12 yds a catch mostly on 3rd downs + clutch situations and caught a 25 yrder on 3rd down in the SD game to help set up the game winning catch. I also will be wearing my black Jarrett jersey to the game so just one more reason to activate Jarrett :D

Here is another question for you guys thinking my idea is crazy. Why did Fox have Smitty return a punt during the last game if he is so happy with Jones? There is more to this story than you think.

Some people just don't get it. We've been in this no RB situation before....so go ahead, hell throw them all back there. Get this far to make stupid ass decisions, and let's see who cries then.

Nobody said he would get hurt...but we didn't come this far to find out either!

Jones may be a play maker if your judging it the same way you would judge the way NC state plays offense, but in reality he is not a huge threat.

He is secure and safe with the ball though, which is good.

He isn't the worse KR in the league by far, but he is far from elite. I don't mind Jones at all, but still the idea of the OP isn't not bad either.
