Didn't Crappy Ice say they were putting a 40 burger on us last year in the Superdome? I mean my God I have heard of athletes talking, but these guys always talk about what they're going to do, what they're going to be, but it never happens....?
Their fans are the same. It's great to be behind your team and be super proud of them win, lose or draw. But those people take it to a whole new level.

Re: Julio Jones: Falcons have best receiver duo in football

In all honesty, the Falcons have a pretty good receiving duo... too bad that doesn't mean ****. Every team, no matter how bad they are... has a set of players that are probably top tier for their position(maybe their are some exceptions). If it doesn't equate to wins then who gives a flying ****.

Re: Julio Jones: Falcons have best receiver duo in football

we led to believe they got a team.

But for years I have never seen that team make anything without Tony Gonzalez. Without him, things look dark.

Re: Julio Jones: Falcons have best receiver duo in football

This proclamation from Jones got me looking at the numbers and it turns out, they're not even the best receiving duo in the South.

These are the numbers since Julio came into the league.

Graham & Colston
Rec 508, Targets 777, Yards 6747, TDs 59, Catch% 65.4, Yards/catch 13.3, Yards/tar 8.7, TDs/tar 7.6%

Julio and The Mouth
Rec 429, Targets 708, Yards 6095, TDs 38, Catch% 60.6% Yards/catch 14.2, Yards/tar 8.6, TDs/tag 5.4%

Julio and the idiot have a higher yards/catch. (Julio is a monster deep) Colston and Graham are better at everything else.

Re: Julio Jones: Falcons have best receiver duo in football

Just out of curiosity... what happens when we put Tony Gonzalez instead of Roddy into those stats?

Without looking I would say you have a totally different scenario. I don't think they realize how much they are going to miss him.

Gonzo and Julio
Rec 430, Targets 644, Yards 5401, TDs 43, Catch% 66.8%, Yards/catch 12.6, Yards/tar 8.4, TDs/tar 6.7%

Julio and The Mouth
Rec 429, Targets 708, Yards 6095, TDs 38, Catch% 60.6% Yards/catch 14.2, Yards/tar 8.6, TDs/tag 5.4%

That's interesting. The combination of Julio and Gonzalez had one more catch and 5 more touchdowns than Julio and The Clown on 64 fewer attempts. Their yards per catch dropped significantly from the JJ/RW combo but that's probably to be expected when you consider their Whites and Gonzo's roles in the offense. Gonzalez had much better hands than White. And played as the safety net. He was often used as the dump option and the guy they went to on 3rd and short.


Graham & Colston
Rec 508, Targets 777, Yards 6747, TDs 59, Catch% 65.4, Yards/catch 13.3, Yards/tar 8.7, TDs/tar 7.6%

Gonzo and Julio
Rec 430, Targets 644, Yards 5401, TDs 43, Catch% 66.8%, Yards/catch 12.6, Yards/tar 8.4, TDs/tar 6.7%

Gonzo had great hands so they had the higher catch percentage but all the other stats lean toward Graham/Colston.

(The stats are real, everything else is just my opinion)

Re: Julio Jones: Falcons have best receiver duo in football

Yes, thanks Utah. Thought it would be a bigger difference. But you are right about Gonzo being the safety net. They don't have that now and when Tony was mauled by the defense and they were allowed to get away with it there was a big difference in the offense. The team may realize how much he's going to be missed but the fans are in for a rude awakening i'm afraid.
