Julio Jones has heard you loud and clear and he is tired of you talking. The Atlanta Falcons best playmaker is making a statement and as always it’s on the field and not with his mouth.
Many consider Julio Jones to be among the best wide receivers in the game, but very few have him as the top wide receiver in the game. As mind-blowing as that seems, we all know it is true. Julio has always been a quiet guy and allowed his game to do the talking and now his game is screaming at the top of his lungs.
- Best route runner? Julio Jones.
- Best hands? Julio Jones.
- Fastest? Julio Jones.
- Widest catch radius? Julio Jones.
- Foot tap? Julio Jones
- Leaping ability? Julio Jones.
Despite all of the evidence telling anyone that watches the NFL that Julio Jones is the best receiver in the league, media and fans will name nearly every other number one in the league but Julio. Yes, DeAndre Hopkins is close to Julio, but he isn’t there yet.
Odell Beckham Jr, not a chance. Name something Antonio Brown does that Julio doesn’t? Nothing. Michael Thomas? Haha, keep it moving. Can’t guard Julio. Mike Evans is good but he isn’t elite. Alshon Jeffery is great but he isn’t worthy of being named ahead of Julio Jones.
The one knock everyone has mentioned in regards to Julio is his lack of touchdown catches as if he throws the ball to himself. Well, 2019 is the year that nonsense comes to an end as well.
For the first time in Julio’s career, he has three touchdown catches in the first two games. Every defensive back on the Falcons schedule should be very scared. Did you see Julio’s game-winning sprint last night? If not, make sure you tune in the rest of the year, because it will happen over and over again.
Through two games, Julio leads the NFL in touchdowns and the Falcons have faced off against two of the best defenses in the league. With the Colts, Titans, Texans, and Cardinals up next, he will more than likely put up monstrous numbers against those defenses that don’t have anyone capable of keeping up with the league’s best receiver.
Julio has heard all the talking, now it’s time to watch his response.
