    Re: Is there any possibility that Jacoby Jones is not the third WR come week 1?

    He's got to stay healthy first. I like Doss a lot and I also think he'd probably be close to locking that #3 spot up if he was out there but part of being a good NFL player is being able to stay healthy.

    Why? Because he is better.

    This just gets on my nerves. Jones was brought in to be the third WR. You knew it, I knew it, our unborn descendants knew it. Yet, they tried to talk us into this idea that Jones was only brought in to return kicks.

    Just when I thought that Jones had the spot locked up, LaQuan starts coming on. Then, LaQuan lets two go in the preseason game that would have really helped his cause. Meanwhile, Doss is just getting back to practicing.

    I just knew it and I don't want him.

    Every WR drops passes, give him time. He WILL make plays that we could not make last year and even open up more routes for other WRs that we did not have last year but yes he will drop some balls. Keep in mind its not like he is getting paid $$$$$$.

    He will do great on the reverse as well as the deep ball. Like I said before, he has 3 weeks and will drop balls but also catch many more and help open things up in the middle of the field. Thats what having 2 deep threats does.

    I'm glad someone else brought this up.

    I haven't seen anything from Jones in two games that makes me think he deserves to make the 53 man roster, let alone third WR. I'm not sure what his cap number is, but right now I'd keep Williams, Doss, Streeter and Deonte. Jones is older and making a ton more money than those guys and we need to worry about RB depth.

    Jones might be a good return man, but from what I've seen so far we have better options.

    Lol, I think it's way over the top to say that "Jones hasn't shown that he belongs on this roster". Are you forgetting about that end around play he made? #3 receiver is one thing, not making the roster is another.

    The "critical third down catches" should be going to the man who's everywhere you need him to be...except when he broke his hand.

    Pitta is the best option on third down.

    Laquan really has been impressive, and i really doubted wed see much improvement from him this year. I was really wrong. hes definitely been our most improved and considering hands, id say hes the better option right now. considering Jones ran a 4.5 40 and laquan ran a 4.55 is there really anything he doesnt offer to the offense that Jones does?

    Size-speed combo. Jacoby is just under 6'3" whereas LaQuan is just barely 6'.

    None of that really matters as long as the guy can gain separation I suppose, but there is that to consider. Other than Tommy Streeter, Jacoby is the 2nd biggest receiver on the books right now. If Doss can stay healthy, he likely could have been "that" receiver for the Ravens. Hopefully he still will.

    good point, for some reason i did think he was shorter (probably because he plays small), so that is something he offers if only in theory.

    Who I wish to be the #3, that would be Doss. Who should be the #3 based on the past, it should be Laquan. Who will be the #3 based on the coaching staff's "we know best attitude", Jacoby.

    When it's third down, just throw it to Pitta.

    Jones will def be the #3. Id put money on it. He has the speed that they want next to Torrey, plus Cameron has probably been foaming at the mouth ever since he saw Jones nail that end around against Atlanta. And we all know that we will see a lot more two tight end sets than three wide anyway.

    That was in 2007, and 40 times doesn't always determine just how fast a player is in a game. There are plenty of down field threats in todays game who didn't have the greatest of 40 times at their respective combines.

    if youre just talking about ability to take a top off the defense by running 9 routes, than yeah i think it does. its straight line speed they have to respect. could the 40 be off from his game speed... sure, but so could Williams. the fact that theyre that close means theyre at least comparable in that aspect. Im not really arguing that there are some guys that are known as down field threats that arent fast (brandon lloyd ran a 4.62 but averages 15.4 ypc), but i think those guys do so with route running not speed, which neither Laquan or Jones are really known for. even if he is a bit faster what does that gain him vs Williams if he cant catch the ball consistently?
