Julio Jones
Surprised no one has made a thread about him. As a Falcons fan I really wanted him to win a super bowl for Atl and retire as a Falcon. I don’t blame him for wanting to go to a team that can win the super bowl right now since he probably only has a few more years left in him to play. The Falcons just seem to be in a funk right now, not knowing if they want to rebuild or try to win a super bowl. So where do u think he goes from here and do you think he will leave on good terms with the fan base.

Whoever makes the best offer.

I can't speak for anyone else, but good riddance. Don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out.

This is a franchise that has gone above and beyond (to their own detriment) to appease him only to watch him get lazy and stop trying after he hung out with T.O. and whined about his contract. They let him get away with never practicing and only playing 60% of the snaps on offense despite making him the highest paid receiver in the league twice.

All offers are 2nd picks which is trash. Should be a first rd pick.

No one wants to give up a 1st round pick for a 32 year old WR on a terrible contract who only plays 60-65% of the snaps.

re: Julio Jones
Feel like the package we accept will be disappointing on the surface.

Seems like dominant thinking is a 2nd if no $$ obligation for the Falcons. Guess it comes down to which team will add and sweeten the deal for the 2nd rounder enough.

Bottom line though, Falcons MUST move him. And teams know that. We are fortunately still in a leverage position with so many teams competing for him.

This. He should have been traded prior to his last vagina ache when he was holding out for a new negotiated contract. Nobody is offering more than a 2nd round pick because he isn’t worth more. Dimitroff is a fricking moron loser and overpaid two players as if they had actually won a Super Bowl, in which they did not.

Now all interested parties know the dumb shite Falcons organization has to move him in order to sign their draft picks.

To be fair, neither Julio or Matt lost the Super Bowl.

Shanahan and Quinn did.

And you guys are gonna be pining for Ryan when he's gone. That I can say w/100% certainty.

re: Julio Jones
Specifically, Quinn. The defense was killing New England but he went to his patented soft zone very early and let Brady get hot. When he tried to get aggressive again, it was too late. Brady was already in the zone.

The entire team lost a 28-3 lead in my eyes. I seem to recall Matt Ryan taking a crucial sack that put the team out of field goal range.

re: Julio Jones
And you can thank Devonta Freeman for the worst pass block miss in the history of football for that. Regardless of Shanahan play calling or Quinn’s incompetence, if Freeman makes that block, ATL have Super Bowl rings.

He can eat a dick. He bitched about his contract during Super Bowl week, got a new contract, and then blew that block.

re: Julio Jones
As a Bama fan and Falcons fan, I’ll always respect Julio but his time is up. He wants out and he’s put in enough time here without a trophy. He should have 1 but whatever.

He’s on the decline and injury riddled the last few seasons. If we can get a 1st, that’s a steal but if we can get a 2nd and a defensive player who starts, I’m in!!

Now, I hate to say it, but Matt Ryan is also starting to limp into this bucket.

In regards to your last point...I am in denial and refuse to admit that. Please delete.

They aren’t getting what they want, otherwise he would be gone already. I bet he goes for a 3rd.

It was a blindside sack thanks to Freeman missing a block. How is that his fault?

Dude threw for 4,500 yds last year and he's "limping?" GTFO. He has a good 3-4 years left.

Jesus christ....for starters one of the players you mentioned has been the bright spot for us throwing over 4,000 yards and been producing. The other has been stealing money and been hurt most of the time. Our defense been trash as well

Just like I'd argue with Saints fans when they kept going 7-9 but Brees threw for 5k+ yards - it's moot.

I'd rather Ryan throw for right at 4k yards and we win 10 goddamn games. Throwing for close to 5k yards means your defense sucks and/or you're always losing and having to bomb the ball. It's a stat that's indictive of a problem. Same shite I used to say to Saints fans. But they were uber-pumped Brees was throwing for 5,200 yards while they went 7-9 for 3 straight years.
