Daniel Jeremiah Tweet About Julio


Recommended Posts

I've done this before but I'll do this again:

Calvin Johnson (1st 4 years): 60 games, 270 catches, 4,191 yards, 33 TDs

Julio Jones (1st 4 years): 49 games, 278 catches, 4,330 yards, 26 TDs

If Julio hadn't been hurt in 2013 he'd be blowing Calvin Johnson out of the water statistically. As it is, he is still ahead of him in every category except TDs.

I'd have absolutely no problem giving him a Megatron contract. None at all...

I don't think even Megatron deserves a Megatron contract.

I don't think even Megatron deserves a Megatron contract.

He deserves it because the market supported it (the Lions paid it because they weren't the only ones who wanted him). I wonder if people who worry about what others are paid think they are paid too much as well in their jobs?

Deserve is a very subjective term. Does Matt Ryan deserve Matt Ryan money? Does anyone really deserve $20 million a year for anything?

Not yourself or Falcunuck, but folks need to understand market value. Every argument I have ever seen complaining about Ryan's contract and not Julio's don't seem to understand economics 101.

You know what I meant.

No WR should get that big of a contract.

I do now...biggrin.png

WR is an interesting position to watch. Because of Megatron's deal, there's a lot of receivers looking to get paid but teams aren't sure of the market. So the class of Dez Bryant, Julio, AJ, etc are going to be the ones to set that market. It'll be interesting to see how that shapes up...
