I wouldn’t doubt if the Jags finally cut ties with WR Matt Jones, who has done more wrong than right in his life it seems like in the last year. The Florida Times-Union talked about that in the paper this morning in the following tidbit:
If you’re the Jaguars, how many times is Matt Jones entitled to disappoint his bosses before they decide he’s no longer worth the trouble? Jones can recite the riot act because it’s been read to him so often by receivers coach Todd Monken that Jones knows it better than a Geico commercial. Fans here want to embrace him, but Jones is just a big tease. He gets people excited. Then, just like that last-second pass in the end zone against the Cleveland Browns last year, Jones ultimately lets you down. Can he change? Sure, anything is possible. But if the Jaguars keep him, they also live with wondering if there’s going to be a screw-up that leads to another suspension, or a drive foiled because No. 18 didn’t go hard enough after a ball.
Jones is a shinning example of what the Jags DON’T want as they move ahead to try and get back to form in 2009, and they should show him the door and let him go as they should not count on him not to mess up again in 09.
