James Jones Has No Use for Helmets
I don’t know what it is about pre-season games and players losing helmets, but it sure seems to happen a lot. Maybe it’s because it’s guys who are doing everything they can to make the team, or maybe it’s because the equipment guys aren’t fitting the scrubs with proper-fitting helmets. Either way, it happened again on Monday Night Football, this time, it was James Jones with a spectacular touchdown catch from Aaron Rodgers. Let’s go to the videotape:
Even though it looks like James Jones had his brains scrambled on the play, I’ll bet it’s the Bengals’ defensive backs who wound up the most confused by what happened. How can you possibly hit someone that hard and not have him go down? And to clarify a point made above, Jones is actually a slot receiver who sees plenty of time, not a scrub. Just ask Brett Favre.
