What will make him more dangerous is getting him involved more in the passing game. He was very good at that in college and has the ability. He and MM are still working him into the offense/playbook. I've only been able to see highlights so far but it is very exciting to see a RB in this offense that finds daylight as quickly as he does. Some of those runs, I couldn't even see the crease until he was already through it. Can't wait to see how he does vs. MIN D.

At the very least, Jones has shown that once Montgomery is back, he doesn't need to handle the full workload. One thing that has been pretty obvious since Montgomery has moved to RB is that he can get knocked out of games a little bit easier than some other starting RBs in the league. A top backup is necessary and Jones looks more than capable so far.

Jones and Monty. Both are needed. It seems pretty clear to me Monty is trying to "think like a RB" instead of just ripping off runs like he was last year. I'm sure there is a bunch of technique he is trying to implement and he will need work but the guy is a baller. As others have stated, Jones is used to the position. The two of them in tandem will make the run game a constant contributor.

Maybe not the right thread, but I'd like to see Mays get carries over Williams. Williams hasn't done anything with his opportunities. Obviously we are talking 3rd string here at this point, but if Monty isn't ready for MIN, lets see Mays as 2nd string.

I agree, Tdog . I try to keep in mind that although we have seen very little of Williams, even during the pre-season, the coaches see him every day, etc. etc., and I should trust their judgement. But he has done next to nothing when he has played, with largely the same blocking as Jones. The OL certainly haven't been road graders, but Jones is able to find enough of a hole to make some good runs. I think there is a lesson in there somewhere.

He's getting as many touches in the last several weeks as 88 was getting before he injured himself out of the lineup. 33 doesn't need more touches. They just need to keep his involvement more regular throughout the game, not feast or famine. Keep pounding him and he'll be done by Dec. and we'll be talking about Mays/Montgomery. Kareem Hunt is getting 20 touches a game and it'll be interesting to see if Reid continues with that through 16wks. What do you do with 88? move him around more like...

In his last two games he has averaged 2.8 and 1.5 per carry. I'm a pretty ballsy guy, I'm willing to risk it. I once went sledding without a helmet. It was the most exhilarating 2 mins of my life.

Monty is Brandon Jackson part 2 - a good third down back. A better receiver but not as good a blocker as Jackson.

I just don't see a ton of similarity with Monty and B. Jackson. At his absolute best, Jackson was an assignment sure good teammate type guy who was a decent receiver out out of the backfield and solid in pass pro when he stayed in to block which was often. Monty has shown some skills that Jackson never had, I mean there is no way in Hades Brandon Jackson was ever going to be playing WR and yet Monty has played it before and probably can again. Jackson was definitely better in pass pro than...

And given he was busted for a DUI in college (2016) and given diversion, apparently getting high or stoned before driving is no big thing to him.

I'm a fan of ending prohibition. The violence and destruction that affects many for doing what amounts to be victimless crimes is unreal. If you like to read about this stuff check out "Chasing the Scream". Regarding Jones - pay for a driver. It's not all that difficult to avoid this trouble. Being tolerant to those who want to partake is one thing, but keep it private and off the public roads.

In this day and age of the media looking for that instant controversy, I find it extremely interesting it has taken almost 2 months for this to become public. Wouldn't surprise me if the local reporters F with MM over that; when did he become aware, why he wasn't disciplined by the team, etc.

LOL, GBFFL ! I would be hard on him as a juror. Not because he smoked pot, but not having a valid license is being a poor citizen. There are responsibilities in life to the community one lives in. Speeding @ 24 over (79 in a 55) is just....stupid. Doing it without a license is... stupider. I might give him a pass on being stoned. I'd be much more interested to know if he was actually impaired to the point he was having trouble controlling his car before I make a judgement. Like I'm not ...

Aaron Jones is worth a 2nd round pick today. He’s worth a 1st rounder if he’s used correctly. Hes not Kamara. But he’s next door with a better outdoor grill. Aaron Jones is the biggest mistake Mike ever made after Winston Moss.
