Packers wide receiver James Jones sees the same thing that pretty much everyone else sees when they look at the Packers offense at the moment.
They need to make more plays through the air, preferably down the field, and they need to start doing it right away if they are going to make the playoffs.
“We have to make some throws,” Jones said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Everybody knows it. It’s going to be cold. They’re going to stack the box to try to stop James [Starks] and [Eddie] Lacy. We have to make some throws and we have to make some catches. It will get done.”
With Aaron Rodgers looking set for another Sunday on the sideline, the task of getting the ball down the field will fall to Matt Flynn. The Packers believe a full week of practice with the first team will lead to a better outing for Flynn than he managed on Thanksgiving.
Jones said he believes Flynn has the arm to make the necessary throws and that he’s spent the week getting timing down with the receivers, which leaves only actually getting the job done left on Flynn’s current to-do list. We’ll find out Sunday if he can check that box as well.
