Green Bay Packers WR James Jones said he believes he, WR Randall Cobb and WR Jordy Nelson could all post 1,000-yard seasons in 2013.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones said he likes the trio of himself, WR Jordy Nelson and WR Randall Cobb heading into the 2013 season, even if impending free-agent WR Greg Jennings signs elsewhere. "I can see me, Jordy and Randall getting about 80 catches apiece. I can see us all having over 1,000 yards," Jones said. He added it is doubtful a receiver on the team would catch 100 balls, only because QB Aaron Rodgers likes to spread the football around.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers thinks WR James Jones is having a career year because he's more focused since becoming a father. "The numbers speak for themselves. Leading the league in touchdown catches is pretty impressive, 12. I think it's on 50-something catches (51), so just about 1 of every 4, almost 5, he's getting in the end zone," said Rodgers. "It's pretty impressive. He's really improved a lot. The greatest compliment for him is he probably is not going to mind too much being overlooked." Rodgers said Jones has seemed more dialed in ever since the birth of his child, and he's getting open when it counts, down in the red zone.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones, who doesn't have a single dropped pass this season, said his penchant for dropping passes during the 2010 season likely cost him a hefty payday on the open market. Other teams told him they didn't want to sign him because of his dropped passes. "They didn't feel like I could catch a ball," Jones said. "They didn't feel like my hands were good enough. . . . When I play those teams, I have a little bone to pick with them." Jones has 40 catches for 462 yards and eight touchdowns this season.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones is on pace for career highs in receptions (72), yards (802), and touchdowns (14) this season. Jones said the secret to his success has been his ability to stay focused during games. Jones talks to himself on the field; he literally yells at himself between snaps. "Focus! Stay Focused!" Jones has suffered from drops in his career; however, this season he does not have a drop in 57 targets. "In the past I've had games where I caught balls early and I would lose focus at the end," said Jones. "And the other way around. So I'm constantly talking to myself the whole game."

One of the most glaring weaknesses for the Green Bay Packers offense so far this season has been production after receptions. WRs Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb all have averaged fewer yards post-catch in the first three games than they did last season. "We've addressed that in our room, especially on those little bubble routes," Nelson said. "Just catch it and get vertical. Definitely get the first downs. Don't try to make a home-run play out of something small."

He's got five, six good receivers to throw to, a tight end to throw to, so I'm sure it gets tough."
