Fourth-year receiver James Jones has had an up and down career, and perhaps the last three games are a microcosm of that inconsistency.
Jones had no catches Sunday against the New York Jets, and was also shut out Oct 17 against Miami. Sandwiched in between, Jones had four catches for 107 yards in a huge Week 7 win over Minnesota.
“James Jones could play better, yes,” Jones said. “But James Jones believes to be up, you need opportunities. I can’t throw the ball to myself. I can’t do that.
“Now, I believe people say, ‘Up and down, up and down’ because with the few opportunities I have, I may let a ball go, which I have this year. I haven’t really made the most of my opportunities and I have let a couple balls go.
“I understand where it comes from, but with opportunities I believe comes consistency and hopefully I can get some more opportunities.”
