Shhhh..... Matt Jones
is quietly climbing up the charts. He had a great game last week (5 – 117 Receiving for 1 TD), and has had touchdowns in three of the last four games, to go along with that big day against the Ravens.
A quote from PFW:
Jones dusted Ravens CB Chris McAllister for a 32-yard touchdown in the first quarter and sprinted past Deion Sanders for a 36-yard gain down to the Ravens’ four-yard line that almost went for a touchdown. Then, in the fourth quarter, Jones beat McAllister for a 42-yard gain. He also lined up under center for one play and gained 10 yards even though everyone in the house knew he was going to run with the ball.
I think that Odell Thurman
(LB for the Bengals) is a solid candidate for the defensive side: 50 tackles, four interceptions, six passes defended, two forced fumbles, fumble recovery, and a sack. I also like Ware and Merriman, and think that they will be forces in the NFL for years to come, but this year it should belong to Thurman.
And to agree with "lmcjaho" a bit, I think that if Gado
can either keep up the pace, or even help the Packers to a (second-half) winning record, he deserves a very long look. To be able to produce ANY kind of rushing yards from that O-line is impressive, never mind the 3 TDs. Lets see if he can keep it up.
