Could this be Julio’s biggest year yet?


Recommended Posts

Could Julio put up sick numbers this year?

i say yes and here is why

1.   Oline a better O line gives more time for Julio to get deep

2.  Koetter - we all know he likes to go deep and he’s 10x the OC that Sark was.  He will scheme Julio open

3.  Ridley -  teams didn’t know what he could do last year, so as usual, coverage was focused on JJ.  With Ridley now seen as a true threat, will teams be limited in how they roll coverage or double on Julio?   

4.  JJ is a hardcore MF’er.

I wouldn’t be surprised . He churns out yards with ease . & for whatever reason I feel as if he hasn’t “broken out” yet so to speak . Like Calvin’s 2012 season .. Calvin had already proven to be great but he flipped another switch. Everyone knew where the ball was going & they still couldn’t stop him . So no I wouldn’t be surprised if Julio had his biggest season yet . It would be one for the record books since he’s already proven to be great as well . If anything it’s over due .

2015 was Julio’s breakout year as the guy but he can still beat that season. Everybody knows Julio is gonna get the ball and they still can’t stop him so I def wouldn’t be surprised if he tops 2015 and even hits 2k yards. The reason I don’t think it will is because Matt has too many other weapons and he uses them.

Wven with the emergence of Ridley defenses will still roll coverage to Julio. Unless they have 2 very good corners that can play man to man. Not a lot of teams have the speed or the cover guys to do that and have to zone us. 

Even last year, Julio could have broken 2,000 yards if he and Ryan were connecting on their 40+ yard balls

Agreed... Offense is loaded with weapons...and there will be a stronger commitment to the running game..

But its Julio....so who knows

Meh. Everybody misses. If you look at the average per year a wr has 40 yard plays it’s about 2 so Julio and Matt were on par. Rice and Montana missed. But the reason Jerry was able to get 2k was because of the extreme targets he received. Julio can easily get 2k if Matt targets him even more than he does. It’s really about volume. 2015 was his most targeted season and he was right there. But he was pretty much all we had that year with Roddy a shell of himself and that other wr just not it.

Due to emergence of Ridley/Hooper and greater emphasis on running game with freeman healthy, we may see Julio’s numbers for Catches/Receiving yards taper off a little. But don’t be surprised if he has his best year yet for TDs.

Our offense looks loaded. 

I foresee Julio having a 2016 season.  Most don’t regard it as one of his best, but I do.  We were balanced, everyone ate and Julio surpassed 1,400 yards on just 129 targets which is staggering.

When his numbers look like that, our offense is humming.  2015 was great, but 200 targets means we are too one dimensional

I think the answer is..  it depends.  There are only so many snaps and so many balls to go around and we keep being told there is a renewed focus on the running game.  So unless we're really clicking on offense and Ridley, Hooper, and Sanu are making teams pay consistently for rolling coverage toward Julio,  it may be hard for him to get enough looks to have a career best year.  I think it would take a historic offensive output like in 2016 for it to happen... which.. you know... I really hope does.

Is it possible?   Sure.  Compared to 2016, Hooper is totally different. much better player than he was.  We have far superior talent on the o-line that should give Ryan much better protection and time to throw.  Our WR talent and depth is superior.  RBs are a push with Ito and Ollison vs Coleman and Ward behind Free.  It really all is going to depend on how things gel as the season progresses.
