Itīs the same with Jones like it is with Tyson, Ali or the Klitschkos, tey were/are all good or great fighters but there fans just make more out of them than they really are/were.

I don't feel like I'm overrating Jones at all, I felt like I was stating a fact??

Anyhow, in my opinion, Hopkins gave one of his best tactical performances in that fight, but Jones was just too fast for him. I don't see any difference between the Hopkins who fought Jones and the Hopkins who fought Trinidad.
