Not long ago the Atlanta Falcons had the best receiver in the NFL. He also happened to be the best receiver in franchise history, he was truly special.
However, due to some small antics during last year’s offseason, he is no longer with the team, as sad as it was at the time, it might have been the best decision the team could make. Now he is going to be helping his team to make their first Super Bowl in a long time.
You should be rooting for the Falcons former WR, Julio Jones, this weekend
The Atlanta Falcons truly had one of the most special, if not, the most special receiver of the past decade. He was physically dominant and he scared defensive coordinators like no one else.
Now he is a Tennessee Titan, the team that is the number one seed in the AFC. Saturday afternoon they will be taking on a young Cincinnati Bengals team that is an actual threat to the rest of the AFC.
So, Atlanta Falcons fans should be rooting for the number one seed, as they are home to one of the greats Falcons players the franchise has ever seen.
Sure, he did partially disrespect the franchise last offseason, but he was doing what he felt was best for him. If we are being totally honest, he made the right choice. He now has the chance to make his second Super Bowl, while his former team struggled throughout the season and is now sitting on their couches watching him.
It has not been the best season for Julio, that is for sure. He has struggled with injuries, but hopefully, all of that will be washed away with him dominating in the postseason.
Atlanta Falcons fans should wish nothing but the best for him. He was the hardest working player and it showed. He had to do what was best for him and you should not hold that against him.
