  1. They were ecstatic about drafting Mitch Trubisky also.
  2. So to be clear...Would you have Drafted Pitts???
  3. You tank in basketball not football. That article was one of the worst articles I've ever read.
  4. You said passing on Fields would forever be look at as a blunder right? You also said that Matt has to stay healthy and we must win a championship for it not to be seen as a blunder? What did I miss??
  5. So let me get this straight...We should have passed on the best player in the draft to draft the 4th best Quarterback who went 11th??
  6. After watching film, I don't think Sheffield can play. The other corners (Oliver/Terrell) and the safety position should be fine
  7. So drafting the best player in the draft is a mistake??? I don't understand.
  8. Is Julio that petty? Wow! And if he is, why would he want to work for Belichick?
  9. You seem to think that Julio has a beef with A. Smith. Why is that?
  10. Still don't agree. I just don't think trading Julio the hall of famer for peanut wins over a team.
  11. No I just disagree with you. Is that ok?
  12. There have been many winning teams that win who are full of malcontents. The Raiders were famous for them. Al Davis screwed over Marcus Allen for year but won a superbowl with him with him be MVP. For the longest time, Steve Young wanted to be traded for many year while he was behind Montana and won a superbowl later. So many examples of players requesting trade being refused while the team experienced success.
  13. The Steelers kept Antonio Brown for years and continue to win.
  14. So you think Julio is of such low character that he will be in the locker room bad mouthing the organization to players that don't want to hear the ****??? That happened to the Cowboys way back when with Dwane Thomas. Talked **** everyday about the cowboys but guess what, the team won the superbowl that year.
  15. Letting Antonio Brown go really shut him up right? Why do you think that Julio will suddenly stop talking about the falcons when he get traded if he truly doesn't like the organization. Most people talk more crap after a break up
  16. The Cap number doesn't work because of the dead cap money hit
  17. This is the only thing that really makes sense. A 2nd round pick isn't worth 15 million in dead cap money
  18. There should be a way to present a case to the league that a player isn't honoring his commitment to the team and his contract. You can't run a business like this!
  19. I would be O.K. with a rule that allow players and their agent to sign a waiver requesting a trade which allows the team trading the player to not be responsible for that player's future salary or take cap hits as a result of that trade. I would then definitely accept a 2nd round pick without the cap ramifications!
  20. They should make a case to the commissioner to nullify the contract especially if Jones doesn't report to camp. The League should discuss creating an Antonio Brown rule for cases such as this.
  21. This would make the organization look so weak. Giving in to a petulant child is just plain week. Julio doesn't run the Falcons and last I checked he is under contract that he sign to perform. If he doesn't, he is in breach of his contract which I hope can be nullified!
  22. I personally think that they should not even trade Julio. The draft capital he would get would not be meaningful enough to take the salary hit or agree to pay a percentage of his base salary which is what teams are requesting. I would force him to either reconcile with the team and ownership or do his L. Bell impersonation and sit out the season which would save the team valuable cap money. Side note... Julio's reputation has reached Antonio Brown level and it will be very hard for him at this point to rehabilitate it enough to make any more money in this league. Brown has to now take 1 year 3 mil dollar contracts which may be Julio's fate going forward if he does not report and repair his relationship with the Falcon's organization and its players especially A. Blank and Ryan.
