Game Of Jones: Over/Under 500 Receiving Yards For Brandon LaFell?
BOSTON (CBS) – It was an Over/Under Tuesday night on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game of Jones,” with Rich Keefe filling in for Jones.
In this latest edition, Adam Jones and Rich Keefe predict the Over/Under on the following topics:
- Starts by Henry Owens with the Red Sox this season: Over/Under 2.5 starts
“I’m going to take the under,” said Jones. “And that has nothing to do with Henry Owens’ skill set or anyone standing in front of him in the rotation. I just don’t know if the Red Sox have any real interest in starting his arbitration clock.”
- Rushing touchdowns by Robert Griffin III this year: Over/Under 1.5 touchdowns
“If he’s out there playing he can’t be running that little. I’m stunned he had zero last year. He should be healthier and further removed from that injury. They have a new coaching staff, so who knows? I would still take the over. He’s going to be able to rip off long enough runs to get in the end zone.”
- Receiving yards by Brandon LaFell in 2014: Over/Under 500 yards
“I’m going to take the under on that number,” said Jones. “I feel pretty confident about that. I just don’t know that he’s a roster lock. I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t make the team. We’ve seen other veteran receivers come in here and fail. Between he and Josh Boyce all of a sudden you’re carrying a lot of receivers, and I would tend to gravitate towards Josh Boyce — a guy you just took in the fourth round rather than somebody who you already kind of know what his ceiling is.”
- Female assistant coaches in the NBA by 2020: Over/Under 5 female coaches
“I’m going to say under. That doesn’t mean there will be zero though,” said Jones. “They introduced two female referees a decade ago.”
- Amount of time you can hold your breath under water: Over/Under 1 minute
“Oh god,” said Jones. “Under. I feel like I freak out and it’s more of a panic thing than anything else.”
