Green bay Packers WR James Jones original reason for donning a hoodie was simple – to battle the cold.
But now it’s taken on a deeper meaning then when he first used it in November’s brutal cold in Minnesota.
Now it for good luck, and he won’t be without when the Packers face Arizona in the divisional playoff round this weekend.
“I wear the hoodie in practice. They always say practice how you play,” Jones said, per NFL.com. So I said I’m going to wear the hoodie out in the game,” Jones explained. “I guess it’s like a good luck charm now, but it all started off just to keep me warm.”
And Jones looks to on to something after he was presented with hard data – an average of 5.3 receptions and 78.2 yards with the hoodie versus 2.3 receptions and 45.6 yards without.
“This is the first time I’ve seen these numbers,” Jones told Siciliano. “But now my hoodie’s really gotta go on now after I’ve seen the numbers.”
