    Julio at safety...

    Coach Saban kept threatening it, then, in the last few gasps by the Cowboys tonight, there was Julio, back at the goal line, in the umbrella, playing safety. Some players are just too good to keep off the field...

    Was thinking the same thing on that last play. It is amazing how he is still a freakish looking specimen on a field with all NFL players. Falcons may have given up the farm to get him but definitely has been worth it so far.

    I saw that too, Earle. Julio is an amazing athlete. I'm so glad he played for Bama.

    Or Chris, if you prefer.

    Saw that. Julio is going to leave an NFL/Bama legacy like Namath or Lee Roy Jordan. A joy to watch.

    He played both ways at Foley. Foley's defensive backfield were Julio & Robert Lester. Not bad.

    Yep
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart

    If Cody didn't get that kick he would have... His hands were like 12 feet in the air...

    ...and if Cody hadnt gotten that block agsint Tennessee, , I think Julio was high enough that he would have blocked it.
    amazing athelete, and a great person overall....I love it when a great athlete is also a humble person.
