I'm not so sure. Julio is going to be one top receivers in the league for a long time. But considering all the places they needed help, Atlanta gave up too much for him.

After they got embarrassed by the Packers in the playoffs a couple years ago, they seem obsessed, as an organization, to change the way they played football. In 2010 they were a slow grind it out offense that made very few mistakes. They didn't turn the ball over much, didn't commit many penalties and could march down the field, eat half a quarter off the clock and then score. They were hard to stop. That's why they went 13-3.

Now they seem convinced that a dynamic vertical passing attack, and a high risk/high reward defense is the way to go. They blamed the coordinators and scheme that got them to 13-3 and hired an offensive coordinator that turned Jacksonville into one of the worst offenses in the NFL and a defensive coordinator that has a history of leaving defenses worse than when he took them over.

Atlanta gave up 2 first, a second and 2 fourth round picks to get Julio. 5 picks that could have been used to get a solid offensive tackle and guard, a stud tight end, a defensive end and a decent wide receiver. But instead they have inconsistent (usually poor) offensive line play, a HOF TE that is about to retire with no visible replacement in sight, a quarterback that has lived up to his nickname "noodle arm" and the same guys that couldn't get sacks last year, trying to get sacks this year.

But they've got a beast for a wide receiver.

They have some offense in Turner, Jones, Gonzales & White, but the defense is still a big "?" ... right now they look to me like the 'Lions of the NFC South' in that they'll be able to put some points up, but they won't necessarily be able to stop the other team ... and that translates into a second/third place finish in the division, eh?

The Falcons have some darn good "skill" players. But, their O-Line is going to have a hard time keeping their weak armed QB upright.

Julio's the real deal. I can't hate on the guy. With that being said, I don't find their offense very scary.

I guess JJ thinks it's only fair that since the Falcon D rarely shows up that the opposition should do the same
