I know when dude is on field defenses freak out he aint calvin johnson yet but thats where he is heading

Detroit is 4-11 with the record breaking Calvin Johnson. In 2013, the Lions will feel the bite of his 8 yr/$150 million extension.

Too many here confuse dislike of the Jones trade as some kind of knock on the player himself. The player is great. The trade was not.

I think the Falcons did what they felt like they needed to do in order to get a top shelf offensive threat. The goal is to have Matt Ryan lead this team for at least a decade & they needed an offensive threat to compliment Roddy now, & take over once Roddy's time is done. It's not something you just do & I believe if you see that same type of "franchise" ability on defense you make a similar trade to get him also. The Falcons right now are not getting top 5 draft picks, so giving up a first round 20 something pick for a playmaker that dominates his position for the next 7-10 years is well worth the price

JJ was too good to pass up. Big, strong, fast, good character and work ethic; he has it all. His impact on the team is obvious and he makes our offense much more dynamic.

Here is a better question to ask... Did the Browns win the trade?tongue.png

The trade was made to put the Falcons over the top...replacing a player(MJ12) who did not fail in the 2010 p/o.

They had solid seasons before him and with him...losing p/o games w/o and with him.

The Falcons need to get to the SB this year or next to justify IMHO...I'll settle for a NFC championship game and a solid performance from the

team.

Failing.........

Without the trade, no player...

BTW, seriously no offense, but are you 'special'?

The Falcons were going straight Blue Jay (recently) when they traded up. The window for the SB is small. They are going for it while they can. Therefore the trade is good/bad. Good if we can win the SB before Julio's extension. Bad if we cannot.

Not according to Dimitroff. He made the trade because he thought the team didn't have any glaring needs and he saw a chance to grab an elite talent. You're right though. It was a move of desperation. Still might pay off.

Can't agree with Dimi if that's the reason he gave. Always a glaring need on a football team. But AJ Green and Julio were two of the most NFL ready players I've seen in a long time, the trade makes sense if you're looking for an immediate impact player.

The players the Browns got with our picks made the trade easier to swallow, that's for sure.
