What are these statistics of which you speak?

Profootballtalk.com takes note of this interview with new Dallas Cowboy cornerback Adam (don't call me Pacman) Jones. In discussing his potential role on the offensive side of the ball, Jones recalls his days on Tennessee, where, according to him, he participated in three offensive plays, all of which went for touchdowns. Unfortunately for Jones, those three offensive touchdowns never seemed to make it on the statistical record. Maybe it's just an oversight, or maybe he was just confusing the punt return unit with the offense, but it still makes for a nice chuckle. Good luck this year Cowboys.

I doubt it's 100% true either way, but couldn't he just be talking about plays where he was in the game but didn't touch the ball?

Nevermind. After reading the article he says he caught one and ran two in on reverses. At Jones' football reference page, you can see he has 5 career TDs (4 on punt returns, 1 INT return). While he does have 39 yards from scrimmage (2 rushes, 2 catches), he has never scored on offense. With that said, HARD KNOCKS should be even more interesting than usual.

Sorry about that. I should have been a bit more clear in my initial post.

And maybe we are losing something in the translation so to speak, but c'mon- I mean, isn't it funny that this kind of stuff only happens to guys like Pacman (sorry, Adam). You never see stories about Marvin Harrison or Marshall Faulk telling reporters half-baked dreamed up stories as if it were truth. Nope, only guys like Pacman.

he ran a reverse in on us when he was at WV (though it got called back). check his college stats, see if he somehow confused tearing up the stalwart uconn huskies w/ the lousy Indianapolis colts. what kind of drugs would you have to do to confuse that?
