  1. Quinnen Williams and their 2nd is just too much to pass up. A cost controlled young asset that's getting better and plays at a position of need for us. Give us a great DT tandem for at least a few seasons. Add in what is likely a high 2nd for a disgruntled 32 yr old star WR? Sign me up before they change their minds
  2. Man, Terrence Marshall Jr would've been awesome. He reminds me of a faster Mohamed Sanu. Would've been an excellent 2nd Rd WR to add......but he's a Panther now so he's dead to me.
  3. I WOULD have loved to see Julio win too. The issue is that he's greatly reduced his value over the last season and offseason. Him missing so much time last year and demanding a trade/now making it known he's "outta here" really hurts the compensation we can legitimately ask for. It's one thing to want to leave 3 years before your contract is up (which is bad), but to expect to go to a choice destination after kicking us in the nuts on the way out is preposterous. Now I'm of the mind that we ship him to the highest bidder regardless of who it is. Screw what he wants.

With the addition of Todd Gurley to Atlanta's backfield, the Falcons have rediscovered the benefits of play-action. Ryan has completed five of eight deep pass attempts off run fakes, gaining 181 yards and scoring a touchdown in the process. Plenty of credit is due to Calvin Ridley, who leads the le
  5. I'm confused. We already have Terrell and Grant. Are you suggesting that Patrick Surtain is worth Julio and a 1st? Or are you adding in Courtland Sutton from the OP? Either way, I don't think that's quite right. Sutton is coming off one good season followed by an injury the next season and Surtain is a rookie. They'd be getting a known commodity who has injury concerns as well, but when healthy is still an elite receiver. I wouldn't be sure that a 1st plus the best player in a trade makes sense, even considering his age. That's before considering that they'd also be getting A-Rod in the
  6. I don't think that's the answer. Right now we have the name brand of Julio. He might have been injured, but he's still Julio Jones and on a per game basis, one of the best producing WRs in the league. If we're going to trade a 32 yr old HOF WR then we need to get the most we can for him. He's in a lose lose situation. The only way he wins is if a team trades for him, which will only happen if he proves he can still produce at a high level. So either play for a team you want to leave and ball out (lose) or sit at home and waste another year but still owe 3 yrs of service (lose)....The cho
  7. I've gone through the sad phase, to heartbroken....now I'm just annoyed with him. Why like this??? Why ruin the goodwill you've built your entire career??? I'm on the road to being down right pissed about it. Just don't get the way he did this. It's such a Antonio Brown move from a guy that has always been the opposite off the field. If this is the extent of the respect he has for the franchise then screw him.
  8. It is. He's under contract. Period. A contract he asked for and received in 2019 no less. Him doing that makes us have to either settle for a lesser trade than a player like Julio should demand or hold out for a better deal. It affects our compensation for him and if we're not comfortable with what we're being offered it can and frankly should affect him. He's the one that put us in this situation.
  9. Yeah, I would've been on the "trade him to a good team, he deserves it" wagon But if he's gonna act like this...... We should hold out for a good deal. If teams want to low ball us then Julio can stay home and watch the season from the couch. That was super inappropriate and if he's gonna behave like that then we should not be doing him any favors. Make a team pay full price or you don't get him. He's under contract, like it or not..
  10. I'm incredibly disappointed in Julio. It's one thing to want to be traded. I get it. Teams been bad the last few years and you want a chance to compete for a ring. But the way he did this is so unbelievably disappointing to me. This is something I would have bet a BUNCH of money that Julio would never do in a million years. This organization gave him everything he's asked for and made him a potential HOFer. Just baffled at the manner in which he did this....Completely floored.
  11. I don't think that's what I'm saying at all. I'm saying what you see is your truth. And you're completely entitled to it. But what you see doesn't count unless it's objective. We can play "what-ifs" all day. But what-ifs don't count. In the end, even if the plays you're talking about did count (which they dont'), that's still only 3 catches and a TD in 10 matchups. Far from "destroying" Horn. If Pitts would've gotten open and Trask missed him that'd be a different conversation. But in the actual game, he didn't get open. The game planned called for the play to go away from Horn for a rea
  12. Good question. It's a tough call without knowing much about how AS will design plays or who'll remain healthy (as all 3 of Pitts, Ridley and Julio have injury history/concerns), but I'll say Ridley. Ridley is already a TD machine and kills when he's being covered by #2 CBs. With Julio back, he'll command attention just by being on the field. Pitts will draw LBs with Safety help. Teams will be forced to try and let their #2 CB cover Ridley pretty much 1v1. Ridley will win those matchups much more often than he'll lose them. Look for Ridley to have long TDs this year until defen
  13. What you see is subjective and it doesn't count bro. I'm not trying to say Pitts isn't a good player. But we gotta make Objectivity Great Again. Who cares if Pitts caught a pass and came down out of bounds? Did it help the Falcons when Julio caught a TD pass vs the Eagles in the playoffs and came down out of bounds? What does it matter if Horn technically interfered with the pass on Pitts if the ref doesn't call it? Did it help when Roddy got technically interfered with on 4th down vs San Fran in the playoffs when the ref didn't call it? What we believe a play is or isn't doesn't m
  14. Ok. In the official record book, you know the one that the NCAA and ever other computation counts, he has 1 catch over Horn. You can count what you see in imaginary land. But for the folks who live in reality, they don't count. Period. Of course the idea was for Horn to be drawn away from the rest of the receivers, but that doesn't change the fact that Horn covered Pitts well. There are multiple reviews of their matchups and not once does anyone but you and a couple homers here say Pitts remotely dominated. He didn't at all. And it doesn't matter how badly you squint or try to incl
