Mike Florio - eyeball stab challenge

Dang Don, tell us how you really feel. :)

I kind of do like Chris Simms but he should stand up to Florio a little more.

Florio went on and on and on for 27 minutes about how Falcons overplayed their hand, Falcons never received a real 1st round offer, Arthur Blank did this/that and on and on and on....it's not like he had not already done 8 other segments about it.   Even the principals - Falcons/Julio/Blank - probably don't care about all the machinations of this as much as Florio.  Good grief - Shut up.

Didn't click the clip. No stabby stabby or choppy choppy for me!

The theme I'm seeing, even from experts, is that the Titans are going to be this prolific offense. Have they watched the Titans? Do they know who the HC is? Do they know the OC's background? Have they ever heard of this dude named Derrick Henry? Do they understand that even healthy Julio takes many snaps off (is on a pitch count)? 

Bottom line: They have forgotten who the Titans are. That offense will be a ball control monster that can survive an occasional shootout.

Florio isn't the worse. I "watch" him and Sims almost every morning while getting ready for work. He has become a TON better. Since Sims and Football night in America, he has become more business/league philosophy/strategy, less hot-take/shock news, SLIGHTLY more light hearted, and is willing to call all front offices on their BS. Don't get me wrong, he still has his tangents and obsessions with certain takes but Peter King shuts him down on the dumb ones; also still a fan's take. haha

someone - anyone!  - needed to shut him down on his Julio takes.   He was mostly right about what he said - but there was no end to it and he just kept going on and on and on and on....he stretched a 4 minute topic into a 27 minute diatribe.

I watched it all. Mainly Sims describing the pros and cons of the trade. Bottom line: Titans will be amazing this year and then be in big cap trouble; Falcons did what they had to do-would have been better off if Julio traded last year. Don’t really disagree with anything they said...

Same.  This wasn't bad at all.  You cannot argue that the Titans should have a formidable offense if they stay healthy.  I will be tuning in on occasion to watch what they can accomplish.

I started watching and went to the bathroom.  When I returned, BOOM, it was not over.  Do I have to stab myself in the eye?

yes.  please make sure the edge of the fork or knife is sharp and hopefully you already have your tetanus shot.

best practices suggest either a steak knife or box cutter.

If Julio stays healthy this year we more than likely should have done everything we could have to have kept him. If he gets hurt or misses significant games this year we come out like bandits. Me personally I like to pretend he just retired and will be blocking Tennessee out of my mind.

I assume you did! The Julio saga was definitely not a good look for the Falcons, and that was discussed in the clip. We lost a great receiver because of management problems with personnel or the cap. I love the Falcons as much as anyone, but you have to admit that, as they say in politics, "mistakes were made". An offense with Julio, AJ and Derrick will be impressive unless Julio gets hurt.

Honestly I just like that they are talking about us. Any attention is better than no attention, right?  Florio has to fill time somehow.

the only mistake made was giving Julio the contract extension - they had his deal where it was best valued for Falcons and they gave away their leverage and screwed up their cap.

after re-doing a contract that didn't have to be re-done - the thanks Arthur Blank received was Julio still being unhappy.

As to Florio,   I don't mind his viewpoint but he runs it into the ground and comes back for seconds, thirds and fourths.   Yes, I listened to it and kept waiting for the topic to change or shift and it never did.   Florio went in dry and stayed there while shot-gunning Viagra.

anybody can list it and not stab eyballs out - but if you listen for 27 minutes and you are a true Falcons fan - you will stab your eyeballs out fer sure.

Signed,

"Listened".. forgive my typo.

You were being a smart@ss... yet you had two misspellings as well.

A bit ironic don't you think.

eyballs & fer
