Julio Ranked #3 Most Indespensible Player In The Nfl.


Recommended Posts

This is outside of the QB position, but Julio was ranked by NFL.com as the 3rd most Indespensible player in the league, citing "the Falcons just can't compete without Julio." While it seems dumb to ignore the terrible defense we've fielded over the past two years and the non-existent run game, what day you? Can the Falcons compete without #11?

We could compete with decent receivers and a stout defense

I just cannot condone the statement that we cannot compete without him. Once your team becomes too dependent on 1 player your team can/will struggle

The three years before julio: 33-15

Four years since julio: 33-25

We could compete before we had him..

Not only did we have Tony and Gonzo, but we had a Roddy White that posted strong numbers; and unfortunately, I would say that Roddy is on the decline.

We also had a decent defense so that helped.

Man he was developed here and I hope the guy retire's here.

We let Farve & Dieon hit the road,for me if we groom it we should keep it not do the hard yards so some other team can reap the rewards please enough all ready.

Rising cap stop worying about what he's going to get paid.Cap management is a strength of this FO.

When 31 other teams would love to have a player I think he is pretty valuable

Yea, I don't let it rustle my jimmies anymore. Most fanbases have this phenomenon going on where they grass is greener, etc. Whenever I talk to fans of other teams about Julio and some MB folks saying we should let him go, etc. they talk about that's the dumbest sh*t I think I've heard all week, let him come to our team, etc. Our team is deficient in other areas so some seem to think we'd have been better off with ______ (insert whatever defensive stalwart they feel the need to mention, etc.)

Reality is JJ Watt, Justin Houston, etc. are great players but they've had very little success in the postseason because...the team is poorly constructed. You even have some fans in both of those fanbases talking about those guys aren't as valuable as outsiders seem to think but nobody with good sense would say get rid of those guys. They're young and valuable and you need to build around them. Falcons have two guys that shouldn't be going anywhere and that's #2 and #11.

Hopefully that includes 21 and 44 soon
