    Re: CBSSports.Com Down on Atlanta's Trade to Get Julio

    I'm gonna half agree with that. Much of the Patriots success in the draft came when Thomas Dimitroff (who's now in Atlanta) and Scott Pioli (who's now in Kansas City) were there. It's not coincidence that those two teams were two of the most improved teams last year. They build through the draft, especially KC. They're like an SEC all-star team.

Atlanta now has the potential to have an uncoverable passing game. Good lord you've got White, Jones, Gonzales coupled with their power running game. That is an awful 'lot of fire power.

    Does anyone think the Falcons will sell more tickets? I mean Bama fans are crazy about Julio. The allure of Julio on the roster could sell more tickets. I hope Falcon fans continue the JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULIO chant after the catch. I think Denver had the same attraction to Tim Tebow and what he would do for ticket sales and media attention. JMO

    I think Atlanta gave up the picks thinking they could plug holes with free agents and get the players they need that way. I hope Julio produces lots of TD's for The Falcons.

    Here's video of Julio being introduced by the Falcons.

    Funny quote from the video from Julio: "I have great hips."

    I don't know why, but that's hilarious to me.

    Lots of folks laughed at the Falcons for drafting Matt Ryan as well..He's turned out to be a good investment so far..

    I can't say much, but I talked to one of his "advisors" and he said after Julio's foot surgery that he's in the best shape of his career. scary

    I ran across this highlight video of JJ's rookie year, and remembered this thread. Enjoy the video.

    could you imagine Julio playing for the Tide today. I mean with AJ, Amari Cooper, a healthy D White and Kenny Bell...that would be sick.

    Given the Falcons record this year, I think it's a lot harder to argue with the value of the trade right now.

    The value of the trade is going to be measured in playoff wins not in regular season record. Julio is definitely a great WR in the NFL but if they don't win playoff games then the consensus would be that the move wasn't worth it.
