Some love for Arthur Jones

29 posts in this topic

In the sea of depression and losses, Arthur Jones is becoming a very productive and talented player. If he stays healthy he can be a long term starter.

What a pleasant surprise from him this year, I hope he can keep it up, if he does we can use McPhee as a situational pass rusher again once he's heathy more efficiently.

Guy has been a real force when given the chance this year. They need to keep this guy in the lineup. Hopefully he will stay healthy and continue to improve. It will only make the need for D Line less.

Absolutely.

Ever since he got "the talk" from Ed Reed, he has played more like the 2nd rounder he was supposed to be, and less like the 5th rounder his injuries made him.

He's been great, and I love it.

Art Jones has been one of my favorite players this year on the DL or even the entire defense. He has elevated his game. I like him more than McPhee right now.

Now we just need a really dominant NT.

Both Art and Kruger doing great lately. Art elevated his game and Kruger became a terror of the edge.
I did notice Upshaw regressed and doesn't hussel anymore

He's really come along the past month or so. The combo of him and McPhee (healthy and back to a pass rush specialist kind of role) will hopefully continue to improve as the season finishes.

I think over the last 3 games he has been our best defender. He is so good at rushing the QB and making tackles behind the line, if he keeps making progress like that I think he will make the Pro Bowl next year.

True! He wants a new deal, I think. He's definitely getting tendered higher than his original draft status.

I would personally rather put McPhee, Ngata & Jones in that set up. Yes, that means Ngata at NT. I think it would solve a lot of our problems.

With the way our NTs have been playing this season,I'm surprised Ngata hasn't shifted to NT already.

I'd settle for a NT who doesn't get punked on every play lol

True. Kemo is on his back like he's napping out there.

As a huge Syracuse fan I was hoping we'd pick Art during the draft (well along with Money Mike Williams). I recall him being the 2nd highest rated DT coming out if it wasn't for those injuries.

I have been preaching this for about a week now. How I would love for that formation. Perhaps McPhee doesn't look good enough yet, or Jones. They might look better rotating. I just wish we could move Ngata to NT. I feel it would solve all our problems on defense.

Yea, Arthur has been playing pretty good. The Jones brother have some type of special DNA running through their blood.

Jones seems to finally be coming into is own at the 5-tech. He seems like he might be serviceable at the position, which would be a big help in building the team going forward.

I knew Art had it in him and Im really happy for him. Hes been a consistent player lately and I think he will only get better.
We just have to keep developing him.

Not a bad idea at all. I like it. Especially if we got Tyson and Hall in there a few downs.

It took them a while to get fired up, but both Kruger and Jones have impressed lately. I'm especially glad to see that Jones is playing well rushing the passer, and not only against the run. Thats great to see in a 3-4 DE.
