By now, you've read hundreds of rumors, short blog posts, and discussion thread comments about Pac-Man Jones. But here's something a bit more substantial about Jones, his background, and the troubling question of why he acts the way he acts. I understand the idea of "keeping it real" and the fact that Jones's desire to stay true to his childhood friends puts him in bad situations. I'll buy that smoking dope with your buddies is "keeping it real." I don't quite see how beating a guy with a pool cue or spitting in a girl's face at a nightclub is "keeping it real." Also,"We do not feel like character is an issue here... We think he's exceptional from that standpoint," will go down as the dumbest thing Jeff Fisher has ever said in his entire life. All in all, good feature story by Greg Garber.

Minor weaknesses dot these teams. Except for Arizona, which needs to bring in more help to really run Bruce Arians' offense.
