    What exactly did you know? That he would drop a pass in practice? LOL...overreact much?

    But the frustration is understandable, when the past two FA WR acquisitions (TJ Housh, and Lee Evans) totally messed up two key plays in a divisional and AFC Championship game the past two years. So getting a WR who is known for having alligator arms is going to always cause a riot here the minute he drops a pass or messes up, whether that be in training camp, a pre season game, or god forbid a regular season game.

    For emphasizing bringing in WRs that can catch consistently, they didnt really follow through on that promise. Thats the frustration youre seeing. One drop is one drop until its an important moment, than its a problem.

    Jones was brought in to be the KR first and WR second. People are making too much out of this issue. If he's a good KR for us, that's all that matters.

    I hope to god that Jones doesn't pull a Clayton/Housh/Boldin/Evans-style brainfart during a crucial moment in a crucial game. But if he does, there are gonna be a few members on here who will have to line up for the crow.

    As others have said, is it "overreacting" when it's a story you have seen many times before, and you bring in a guy who is known for it? It's been said before: for as good as we are at getting defensive talent, that's how bad we can be with our offense.

    So Boldin, Evans, Clayton and Housh were known for dropping crucial passes before we brought them in here? I'm sorry, I missed the games and reports of Boldin and Housh dropping passes, Clayton dropping passes in college before we drafted him. Are you suggesting that we not bring in any WR's? We brought Boldin in here...a guy with a reputation for some of the best hands in the league. Housh as well. We get a perennial pro bowler and a guy with rep for great hands in Housh...now it's "we've seen it before". What the hell is this organization supposed to do? We can't sign guys (basically every WR that hits the market has flaws), and we can't draft guys (long long history of poor picks).

    All I'm saying is give him a chance, if nothing else, he is a good return guy where we really need it.

    Overreacting because of a single dropped pass despite all other reports saying that he has been having a good camp so far is just too much.

    Re: I knew it!!!

    Jones could be a one yr rental, for returns duties, but im hoping that ASA takes that job from him. Not likely, early on, but i rather have a draft pick then another free agent Wr. They jusr scare me. And Doss and LaQuin will be something sweet this yr. Shoot if they can get Streeter to run the 9 route and be a jumpball red zone player, and this kid Thompson keep showcasing, jones has no chance at any wideout spot. now if ASa shows he can return? wait is Laq williams doing returns too?? Think he too can handle returns

    It is basically a 1 year contract.

    And no way Jones doesn't see the field. The guy has had success in this league...why people are acting like we signed Patrick Johnson is beyond me.

    Re: I knew it!!!

    These things happen - he is here to compete with Doss and Laquan et al. I am sure they will all make plenty of mistakes. The best player of the group will emerge to be the 3rd WR.

    Exactly. No one is saying that he's going to be a Pro-Bowler WR
    or anything close, just that a report of one dropped pass after several days of positive reports is a over the top.

    So "eating crow" is as ridiculous as suggesting some here are more concerned about being right than seeing Jones succeed? Right?

    You need to wait for a big drop in a game before you bring out the 'I knew it' card. Practice early in camp is where you should expect mistakes from everyone.

    It's funny...

    We trade for Boldin and sign Housh and everybody was excited...saying we finally got guys who can get open and hold onto the ball. Proven playmakers.

    Then the drops against Pitt...and it's "why do we keep signing guys who drop crucial passes"

    We trade for Evans...and during the preseason, it's we finally got a guy who has great speed and can catch.

    Then again...why do we keep trading for these guys who can't catch?

    Then we draft a guy last year who struggled more than any high draft pick/big signing/trade WR than perhaps we've ever seen in Baltimore with tons of drops in camp...and people were complaining about why we drafted a guy who was known to drop passes in college and why we were playing him over Doss.

    He has a great year, and now some are considering him an up and coming quality #1 WR.

    These are the same people, who are trying to play the "I knew it" card and calling for people who don't agree with them to "eat crow". Sorry, you can't tell me I'm wrong to be patient and see how things shake out when you were one of the posters bashing Torrey last summer and demanding that Tandon Doss start over him.

    Um, you remember what he did against us in the playoffs seven months ago, right?
