Game Of Jones: Over/Under 2.5 Quarterbacks On Patriots Week 1 Roster
BOSTON (CBS) – It was an Over/Under Tuesday night on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game of Jones.”
In this latest edition, Adam Jones predicts the Over/Under on the following topics, with Rich Keefe moderating the segment:
– 5,000 yard passers in the NFL this season: Over/Under 3.5
“With the direction this league is heading, I would say over on that,” said Jones. “It’s definitely going to be more than that this season.”
“It’s going to be Manning, Brees, Stafford and Luck,” added Keefe.
– Home runs for Rusney Castillo this season: Over/Under 2.5
“I’m going over. I’m buying the Rusney Castillo Kool Aid,” said Jones. “I’m high on the player and I think he’ll have a good month for the Red Sox assuming he plays in September.”
– Losses by Team USA at the FIBA World Cup: Over/Under 0.5
“Here’s the thing. Their team stinks compared to some of the other rosters they’ve had, but they’re still not going to lose any games,” said Jones. “They should not lose any in this tournament, even with their crappy, watered down roster. Under. They still won’t lose a game.”
– Saves by Koji Uehara the rest of the season: Over/Under 3
“I’m going over because it doesn’t sound like John Farrell is going to back off of using him whatsoever,” said Jones.
– Quarterbacks on the Patriots Week 1 roster: Over/Under 2.5
“Under. I’ve said for awhile that I don’t know what Ryan Mallett’s role would be on this team, other than a veteran presence. Mallett hasn’t shown much at all this preseason. He’s barely shown anything in the four years he’s been here. Garoppolo, on the other hand, looks great,” said Jones. “I think it’s only Brady and Garoppolo on this team when the season gets going.”
