Falcons trading Julio Jones to Titans

I disagree. I don’t think they’ll be any better than they were last year. The lost both starting corners and then Davis and smith on offense. IMO adding Julio barely makes that a wash. 

 

That and the fact Tannehill is still ineffective unless Henry is killing the defense. 

 

Play action is and will still be the Titans bread and butter. Julio will obviously help some but it's not earth shattering.

Barf. I hate the friggin' Titans. I hope they all get the poops.

Also we'd love him if he landed here but since he didn't  "he's old and washed"

Better than being traded to the Pats

I don't think the Pats would have been able to use him well.    The Titans were the best fit for him.    Also a very easy transition because that offense is not complex.......a lot of play action and deep shot opportunities.    A lot can can happen, but on paper,  this elevates them considerably for this season.   

 

Either way, the Bills just gotta' be the best version of themselves.    The AFC was going to be tough one way or another.

No it really doesn't. Julio is a beast and I would have loved to see the Bills get him but people will overreact to him going to the Titans.

 

Top tier is still the same.. KC Buf Cle and maybe Bal. 

 

All this does is give the Titans a better chance to win their division and moves them into the second tier with Ind, LA, NE, Mia.


This is a baller move with the focus on one thing.

 

January Ball after a 17 game season.

 

January Ball is Playoff Ball.  The rules change.  The field gets smaller, games get shorter, weather colder, defenses nastier, and league rules less called.

 

Titans do this with an eye to be a physical force both with DHENRY running and now BROWN and JONES down the field.

 

Its really Vrabel saying to the Opposing Defenses... “who wants to lower their shoulder into our guys after 4 months of ball.  Who on your team is willing to sell out to bring our beasts down?”

 

and for the DBs who try to put toss their weight on BROWN/JONES at the line...good luck mugging them.

 

BUT 

And this is key to this strategy JONES has to stay healthy.  And prove 2020 was just a fluke.

At first I thought "wow the titians are a legit contender now"

 

But taking a step back and thinking about it, does this really change anything for the titians? Their offense will still go through Henry. So instead of Cory davis or johnu Smith getting targets it will be Julio. 

 

Still a big move but I don't think it really moves the titians up from where they were last season

I will take the 6’3 220 guy to still hold up after 17, 18, 19 games.

 

And he’s not going to be getting rag dolled by DBs in the playoffs.

 

When you get to January Ball...and the refs change the rules.

 

6’3 220 trumps 6’0 194

 

IMO

What exactly does his size have to do with what I said? It has nothing to do with them losing starters on defense or their starting TE that was a key cog in their offense… Again, IMO, jones helps them barely break even on a offseason where they were coming out on the other side as a weaker squad(on paper).

Maybe they will be the 7th seed this year and probably keep the pats and even Browns out of the playoffs.

Cant keep the browns out of the playoffs when they win their division

Ten will likely have one of the worst defenses in the league. Not good for January ball. I am not concerned, at all.

I too don’t think it will make much difference overall in the regular season.

 

9-8 or 10-7.  Take the South.

 

But this really is not what this is about.  It’s and endurance and physicality move predicated on having the most physical and aggressive trio of playmakers on the field when the temp drops below 30 and everyone’s bodies have gone through the gauntlet of the regular season.

 

then you show up on a Sunday for division game or conference championship.

 

and then ask the question...who wants to deal with this trio.

 

I think I like this move for its singular thinking of how to make a great lineup for Playoff Game Single Elimination contests.

Tennessee just went from +4000 to +2500 to win the SB, tied for the ninth choice on the board with the Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks.

 

 

https://www.thelines.com/julio-jones-trade-titans-super-bowl-odds-2021/

 

"In AFC South futures, the Colts were -106 favorites before the trade with the Titans a +130 second choice. Tennessee is now a co-favorite at DK with Indianapolis to win the division at +110, each having an implied probability of 47.6%. So with Julio Jones going to the Titans, oddsmakers essentially see the AFC South as a coinflip. The best available price across legal sportsbooks on the Titans to win the division is that +120 price.

 

Meanwhile, the Falcons saw a shift in price for their win total for 2021. Before the trade, DraftKings Sportsbook had Atlanta projected for 7.5 wins with the over juiced to -137 and under at +113. The Falcons are still at 7.5 wins post-trade but with an over now at +100. Odds to win the NFC South now sit at +900, third choice behind the heavily favored Buccaneers and Saints."
