Jones, the No. 22 overall pick in the draft, provided a big-play complement to Marion Barber and showed flashes of brilliance in his six games. He had 266 yards on 30 carries (8.9 yards per carry) and scored four touchdowns, including a kickoff return.
That is all we have to go on as a professional, as a college player there is a little more. However people keep talking about Jones as a savior or something.
2007 his last year in college: He finished with 123 carries for 1,117 yards and 11 TDs, while averaging a whopping 9.1 yards per carry, leading the nation.
[Mickey Spagnola wrote while making excuses as to why Dallas went 9-7 last year; Felix Jones was 86-ed in the sixth game had he not gotten hurt things could have been a lot different.]
Here is my question to you: Why do I hear on the radio, and on ESPN and read online about what a Hero Jones is and all we have to go on is a really good 5 and ¼ games?
I like Jones don’t get me wrong I almost bought his jersey but I went with Ware instead.
