Packers WR Jones Shrugs Off Scolding By Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones says he deserved the recent scolding he got from Aaron Rodgers.
Jones acknowledges that his play in Thursday's victory over the Chicago Bears deserved scrutiny, and is shrugging off any temporary tension as a sign of two players showing their competitive nature.
Beyond that, Jones says there's no reason for anybody to think twice about Rodgers' leadership skills. With the Packers preparing for a Monday night game at Seattle, Jones calls Rodgers "a natural-born leader."
The minor dust-up was a byproduct of a more concerning trend for the Packers, who have not met their typically high offensive standards in the first two games of the season.
