Will the Atlanta Falcons be able to take advantage of Julio Jones' prime?

Fact: Julio Jones collects elk antlers Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones isn't lacking in the talent department. In fact, Jones may be the best offensive threat in the NFL right now. He's producing at a record-setting pace, basically putting the entire offense on his back. But Julio can't singlehandedly defeat every team the Falcons face, no matter what Kyle Shanahan thinks. Julio's current role begs a serious question about longevity. Really, how long can we go on like this? I know what you're thinking: "James, he's under contract for the next 5+ years! Put down the haterade."...

All-22: Dontae Johnson needs increased playing time after impressive performance against the Falcons

With injuries ravaging the 49ers secondary, Dontae Johnson received his most significant action of the season against the Falcons. Judging from his performance, he should continue to see more playing time. Blaine Gabbert stole most of the attention following the San Francisco 49ers’ win over the Atlanta Falcons last week, but one could argue the defense played a more significant role in the final outcome. With Matt Ryan at the helm and two of the league’s top playmakers, Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman, the Falcons boasted the 11th-ranked offense going into Week 9 even after struggling...

Bye Week Positional Review: Falcons Wide Receivers

A mid-season review of the underwhelming wide receiver group that needs to start being productive as a unit. For the first time in over a decade, Atlanta's wide receiver corps appeared to have quality depth. Signing Leonard Hankerson and drafting Justin Hardy were excellent low-risk moves for team that featured Julio Jones, Roddy White, and not much else. These moves convinced several writers, including myself, that wide receiver was the strongest position on the roster. Instead of being the strongest position, it may be one of the weakest on this roster. Nobody expected Roddy White to...

Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman leading Pro Bowl charge for the Falcons

Matt Bosher is in the mix, deservedly. Three Atlanta Falcons are among the very top vote-getters at their positions for the Pro Bowl, and while that honor isn't as meaningful as it once was, it is well-deserved. Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman, and Matt Bosher are the three players in question, and each has been a standout for this 6-3 Falcons team. It's fair to say that without them (particularly Julio and Devonta, Julio has 80 receptions for 1,029 yards and six touchdowns, and is one of the league's great receivers, even if the offense has been force-feeding him a bit thus far in 2015....

Campbell's coaching decisions have negative impact in Dolphins' loss at Buffalo

Two coaching decisions by interim coach Dan Campbell played a part in the Dolphins' 33-17 loss at Buffalo on Sunday. One was a timeout Campbell didn't call toward the end of the second quarter, and the other was a holding penalty he probably shouldn't have accepted in the third quarter. Campbell...
