James Jones WR OAK Aug 12 '7814 Comments
James Jones has improved his pass-catching efficiency this season by talking to himself on the field and "doubling" his film study.
Jones yells at himself, "Focus!, Stay focused!" in between plays. "Even some of the DBs have asked me, man, what are you talking about?" said Jones, who was plagued by early-career drops but doesn't have a single drop on 57 targets this season. "In the past I've had games where I caught balls early and I would lose focus at the end. So I'm constantly talking to myself the whole game." Observed Aaron Rodgers, "The way that he's playing is a direct correlation to the way that he's practicing. ... It's transferring over in to the game."
