The Wonderful and Powerful Mr. Felix Jones

I began browsing sports news this morning when I stumbled across an article at the Dallas Morning News. The article entitled “Dallas Cowboys RB Jones stays one step ahead” is all about Felix Jones and how he has improved. I thought to myself, ”Wow, we have barely seen what he has and fell head over heals in love with him, and now they say he has improved his routes?!”

Here is what running backs coach Skip Peete had to say,

“One of his biggest attributes is not the first guy he’s trying to make miss, but the second guy. He’s already starting to work to see where that guy is coming from and getting his next move, his next decision-making process started.

“Some guys will run and make a move on the guy directly in front of him, then start running again. There is no slowdown with Felix. He will see the next guy and is ready to create and make a move. It looks like it’s all one motion.”

Here’s Felix,

“You have to look forward to the next move. If you have somebody already set up to get past them, you are looking forward to making another move to get to the end zone.

“It’s hard to put into words, but once you see your blocker in front of you, you have confidence in him and know that he’s going to do his job, you automatically look for the next guy.

“I’m sure I’m not the only one who has that ability, to look forward to the next move. But it is a blessing.”

Amazing. Confidence, intelligence and talent, Felix has it all. If last year’s 30 carries were just a taste of what Felix can bring, we are in for one hell of a show!

I realize there is a ton of hype about this guy and he hasn’t even played a full season, but the excitement is so hard to hold back.

Say it with me now, FELIX! FELIX! FELIX!

    Wow!!! That quote about needing to look forward for the next move reminds of another RB who spoke about the same things. Some guy named Tony Dorsett. Jones reminds me a lot of Dorsett. He has the vision, the burst of speed, the moves. Look out!!!! If Barber doesn’t give defenders concussions after being hit, it will be Jones who makes them dizzy with his moves and speed.

    I agree Kelly I am very excited for him and the team too. If everyone stays healthy this should be a fun team to watch.
