It probabaly won't be a surprise to anyone.....but I loved the trade.
It's hellarisky but I always thought the team had a real need for another playmaker (or two) last year and this is exactly the type of guy they needed. Not only a speed guy, but a YAC guy who can break a tackle on a WR screen or slant.
The 5 TDs in a row against GB sucked, but I thought it was a bit of an aberation. I really thought WR was the second greatest need on the team still behind DE. Hopefully the Falcons can land a productive and disruptive DE in the offseason, and they still need a nickel if they can find it as well.
That's doable. Don't know that there was a slam dunk of a DE they could have gotten in the draft, which is why I like the Jones trade. I think he is pretty close to sure thing. I know the league is littered with "sure thing" WRs that turned into colossal busts, but this guy has all the tools and the work ethic too, I just can't see it happening.
Hey, good to see you are still alive and kickin Peyton...
