Rumors and Expectations


Recommended Posts

Jones wants a new multi-year deal that pays him more. Like Julio, age is no longer on Chandler Jones side, and getting a new deal from his current organization is not likely to happen with younger players in contract years getting deals put into place. Playing out the year on his current deal has Chandler Jones ending up being another year older, and possibly dealing with another injury that could limit his earning potential. Like Julio, Chandler Jones and his agent want to force a trade, with the hope that any new team will produce a new contract or at least an extension on the current deal, and like Julio, Chandler Jones has the All-Pro status that makes him an attractive trade. Atlanta will not make this trade because they can’t afford it.

yeah, absolutely STOOPID for Falcons to try and go for Chandler Jones.     You summarized it well - Chandler is on his "out years" just like Julio and so he and his agent want to get one last large payday based on past performance.

NO ONE believes Falcons are anything other than a .500 team or fringe playoff team(at best) in 2021 - with or without Chandler Jones.

Terry Fontenot is trying to build something that will last - that doesn't include moves like this one.

Couldn't agree more. No way this happens. It would be a Dimitroff type move - one that has backfired time and time again.

Pass rush is a glaring weakness, better scheme notwithstanding. The right move would be Justin Houston or Olivier Vernon (if healthy enough) on a 1 year deal, then draft an edge rusher or 2 in 2022.

Rumor = Idle and unfounded speculation/opinion.  Just like all news outlets now.  

A rumor is an unsubstantiated report, something people are saying but with no backing 

If you just made it up yourself, then you didn't hear it at all, much less from multiple people.

It isn't a rumor. You're just a liar and a scam artist

Yep.  But selling as a rumor so you look connected.

if fairness to "punchable face Mott" - this is how he got to Chandler Jones.    He said that Chandler Jones was in the NEWS and even though there is no RUMOR to the Falcons, the Falcons need a passrusher and Jones would then be the #1 available rusher.     So he was able to take some News, say it wasn't a rumor - but then went on to speak about it for 5 minutes  - so bottom-line, just some excuse for this guy to talk.

News stations usually go with unnamed sources when they want to attack a politician. How many unnamed source hit pieces were levied against Trump? Also when they are debunked there is rarely a detraction, and if there is its a 5 second statement. 

Cable news, FB news, etc is absolutely misinformation, or disinformation almost exclusively. The fact checkers are nothing more than an arm of said news outlets. It really is propaganda. 1984 is here 

You have to learn how to decipher news.  The facts aren't made up, but the opinions around them are usually biased on both sides.  That's why it's important to get your news from multiple sources and learn to ignore the opinion and focus on the facts.  Anyways, let's not derail this topic, back to the Falcons.
