Jones not upset with Rodgers

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 18, 2012 – 2:30 pm

WR James Jones said on Tuesday that the sideline scolding he received from QB Aaron Rodgers against the Bears last Thursday was not a problem between the two. After Rodgers threw an interception in the fourth quarter on a pass intended for Jones, TV cameras showed Rodgers visibly upset with Jones for turning one way on his route when Rodgers expected him to turn the other.

“Me and A-Rod are way closer than that to let something like that come in between us,” Jones said. “We’re out there trying to win the ballgame. It was my fault. I gave him mixed signals. We’re all emotional out there.

“I’m not mad at him. We’re trying to win. Get on me. I messed up.”

Jones chalked it up to a family squabble, heightened by the frustration many were feeling for the offense’s struggles through the first two weeks. He said Rodgers later apologized to him for calling him out in front of everyone like that, but he told Rodgers there was no need to do so.

“I messed up. Frustration happens,” Jones said. “It’s all good, no love lost. We’re teammates, we’re family in here. We’re all trying to win.”

Jones added that questioning Rodgers’ leadership abilities in the wake of the incident was “ridiculous.”

“He’s a natural-born leader, not just by what he says but how he carries himself, how he plays the game, how he handles certain situations,” Jones said. “Everybody in this locker room looks up to him as a leader. Everybody in this locker room believes in him.”
