He’s baaaack.

Adam Jones, the man formerly known as Pacman, has overcome injuries and off-field issues and gotten back to the gamebreaking skills that made him a top-10 pick in the 2005 draft.

Jones returned a punt 81 yards for a touchdown early in the Bengals’ home opener against the Browns.  It’s the fifth punt-return touchdown for Jones in his career, and his first since 2006.

    Beware: he may have stolen the ball.

    Good for him. I wouldn’t say he’s back yet. But good for him

    Which shouldn’t have happened because the replacement refs missed an obvious tripping call the previous down.

    I love a good story. Here’s to hoping he stays on the right path and finishes his career without any off field issues.

    THere needs to be a board in here to put ref mistakes on…Bengals -Browns 3:48 1st qtr, 4th and 1 ball approx 50 yd line. …1st off the spot was bad forward progress was marked with the players body, when he actually stretched the ball over the first down mark, then was dragged backward and to the ground. Bad spot…then on 4th & 1, next play Bengals go for it and make it. But the Bengals had rushed to the line after 3rd down and the Browns DT & CB are both lined up in the neutral zone when the ball was snapped. Missed call again! This is what no media source is covering. We only hear about big mistakes that cost teams. Well both mistakes could’ve cost a punt on a drive that gave 7 pts. So they are game changing mistakes. Every one of them. Just because the team overcomes the mistake does not mean it wasn’t game changing.
