g-dawg Posted September 17, 2015 Share Posted September 17, 2015 TBH the injury would'nt have detered me from signing him long term.For me Julio's talent surpasses any of that.He plays physical so injury is always going to be an issue there just because he plays full throttle.I mean seeing him beat up on Maxwell to me was a TKO.After watching him dominate Petersen like you mention and further back Namnadi and following performances for me it was just a no brainer not even a discussion but I still don't understand of someof our fans mindsetsin fact it blew me away.Jerry Rice mentioned 3 years ago that Julio would be the next great WRer.Dieon Sanders had a good interview with #11 about showing how far #11 had come in a short time by showing 3 different releases running the same route showing not only was Julio a load physically but also showed he mentally was right there also and we all know about his work ethic.I don't know if any of your angst is directed at me where I was arguing for Julio's numbers to be basically the same as Dez/Bey-Bey and me saying their numbers(stats) were slightly better(than Julio's) or not - regardless - what difference does it make if we signed him now or next month or in March? We definitely did not get a discount now as we paid north of what those two got paid. Would Julio have played worse w/o the contract extension? I don't think so. If Julio gets severely hurt this season, will you change your mind?I'm glad we got him signed - but it is no better to say that we "need to hurry up and get it done" and "just give him what he wants" as it is trying to negotiate the best deal you can for your team.
