PFWA gives Falcons’ Julio Jones All-NFL and All-NFC honors, snubs Matt Ryan

PFWA gives Falcons’ Julio Jones All-NFL and All-NFC honors, snubs Matt Ryan

Julio deserves the recognition, but so does Ryan. Julio Jones had a spectacular season, and the Pro Football Writers of America recognized his accomplishments by bestowing All-NFL and All-NFC honors on the wide receiver for the 2018 season. But they snubbed the hell out of Matt Ryan for All-NFC recognition. First things first, Julio deserves All-NFL and All-NFC honors. He led the league in receiving yards with 1,677, over 100 more yards than De’Andre Hopkins, who finished second in the NFL and also had a spectacular season. Jones averaged over 100 yards per game, scored eight touchdowns...

Although favorites with the bookmakers to trade for Antonio Brown, Julio Jones doesn’t believe Falcons need him - ‘We good over here’

Although favorites with the bookmakers to trade for Antonio Brown, Julio Jones doesn’t believe Falcons need him - ‘We good over here’

While the bookmakers may think Antonio Brown will be in Atlanta at the start of the 2019 season, his potential teammate Julio Jones appears less keen. In the world of sports betting there is a market for everything, and it should come as no surprise to learn that one of the latest markets available for the Pittsburgh Steelers involves where Antonio Brown will be playing football next season. Before Art Rooney II spoke to the media on Thursday, the Steelers were heavy favorites with any sportsbooks offering the wager, but since then the market has taken a notable turn. At odds of 4/1...

Falcons WR Julio Jones doesn’t want Antonio Brown playing alongside him in Atlanta

Falcons WR Julio Jones doesn’t want Antonio Brown playing alongside him in Atlanta

The NFL rumor mill is churning in overtime with the claims that beleaguered player Antonio Brown has effectively ended his time with the Steelers thanks to his antics (though his beef with Ben Roethlisberger didn’t help him any), and now, the wide receiver might be heading to Atlanta to play with the Falcons. But Julio […] The post Falcons WR Julio Jones doesn’t want Antonio Brown playing alongside him in Atlanta appeared first on ClutchPoints.

How the Falcons receiver position could and should shake out in 2018

How the Falcons receiver position could and should shake out in 2018

Don’t make many changes, please. If running back is one of the strongest positions for these Falcons, so is wide receiver. The team has one of the three best players in the NFL at the position (Julio Jones), a very capable second option (Mohamed Sanu) who also happens to be an excellent passer, and a promising rookie coming off a ten touchdown season. Everything beyond that is almost immaterial. But the Falcons do have more than that. It’s anyone’s guess whether they’ll bring back Justin Hardy, who is rarely useful in the day-to-day passing game but has proven to be a capable red...

Brown is coming off of...

Comparing Calvin Ridley’s rookie season to those of other Falcons legends

Comparing Calvin Ridley’s rookie season to those of other Falcons legends

He had his share of miscues, but Ridley’s also capping off a terrific rookie season. Calvin Ridley’s rookie season was marked by astonishing highs, a franchise mark that will likely stand a very long time, and some very aggravating miscues. Where does that season stack up against other greats of yesteryear for Atlanta? For today, we’ll look at elite tight end Tony Gonzalez (not, of course, a Falcon his whole career), Julio Jones, Roddy White and Andre Rison to see how Ridley’s first year stacks up. This is useful because Julio and Gonzalez were considered elite players more or...
