Julio Jones better than Calvin Johnson, Gil Brandt says
 
"I think some people like strawberry ice cream and some people like vanilla. They're both pretty good," Brandt explained Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Some like red heads and some like blondes. I think if you took 10 people, probably six of the 10 would take Johnson, and four, including myself, would take Julio Jones. I just think the whole package, I like Julio a little bit better than Johnson."

A little far fatched, but not by much. Julio is a freak and will only get better. I'm pulling for him, he's one of my favorite non-Saints and I hope someday he leaves the Falcons for a different team.

You know, Gil, I wish I could think of such an intellectual breakdown of my opinion. "Some people like strawberry ice cream and some people like vanilla". Brilliant. We have determined that Julio Jones might be better than Calvin Johnson, because some people like Julio's flavor better.

Calvin Johnson churns out 200 yard games with guys draped all over him, knowing that he IS their offense. Julio Jones pulls his hamstring if he has to work too hard for a catch. He's not consistent even when healthy. There is no comparison.

I'm sorry. In my younger years I tried to protect the innocent from stupidity. I failed. Gil Brandt got away. I just couldn't get them all. I tried.

To all of humanity I apologize. I tried. Truly I tried.

I usually really likeswha Gil Brandt has to say but this wasn't his best. That not saying JJ is a bad reciever or won't eventually surpass CJ but as of now it isn't even close.

You know, I pride myself on considering both sides of an issue, in most cases. Then a guy like this comes along with something like this that makes me want to totally disregard everything I stand for ...
"WTF ?!"


What is it with these guys and the love affair with Atlanta? It's just like the Matt Ryan debate. Never mind these guys aren't setting records or winning SuperBowls, we're supposed to believe they're better than the players who are. And why? Because Jones has "stronger, more reliable hands in addition to his fluidity." :rofl: 'Fluidity'? Is that even a word? Are we talking about catching passes in the NFL or cleaning drains?

Come on, this is a joke, right? Gil Brandt writes for the Onion, right?

This is Calvin's time. Undisputed. Bet.

When I think about the wide receiver debate, I put Larry Fitzgerald in front of Julio Jones anyway.

Calvin does more with less talent around him.

Julio has some awesome ability, but he's not better than megatron. He makes some amazing catches for us though. I'm glad TD traded up for him. That's one of the best descisions he's ever made.

Usually Brandt is pretty spot-on, but I can't agree here. I like Julio - as a Bama fan, not a Failcons one - but he wasn't even the most productive WR on his own TEAM this season.

And frankly, Natty Arse is a slightly-better QB than Matt Stafford.

Johnson produces more with less around him - no quality #2 WR, no consistent running game, shaky O-line - so I gotta give him the edge. No doubt Julio is up-and-coming fast, though.
