Great, see what I'm talking about SportsFreak? You say something and then the local troll misinterprets it because you made it sound like something it's not, and now he has tons of bullshit ammunition to spin into negative rantings and team bashing. This will give him weeks of thread hijacking material.

I think it has more to do with the fact that cornerbacks drafted after the 1st round rarely come in and make an immediate impact, if they even make an impact at all.
I don't think it's coincidental that only three out of the ten CBs selected to the 2010 Pro Bowl were drafted after the 1st round. Of those - Samuel, Grimes and Tramon Williams - none became Pro Bowlers until their 5th season.
Anyone looking for a Nnamdi, Champ, Revis, Woodson or Winfield to come in and be successful right away better have a high draft pick. Anyone looking to deem a 3rd to 5th round CB a bust after one or two seasons simply doesn't know very much about football, has an agenda or both.

sportsfreak knows stuff and has legit info on the team...I believe what the poster types . .. if the poster sportsfreak said Julio Jones has not participated in team drills
I believe sportsfreak plain and simple
Julio Jones - is still not running and not with the team doing drills or getting team chemistry . ... No clue why media has to spin shit there way they should know the TRUTH comes out..lollllllllll LETS plant a story . since TD is getting heat that he gave up the farm for Jones...Lets say he was out there with the team ...BUT NO SIGN of him ... so lets get the team Moral up after that crushing playoff loss
Dunta Robinson who got paid last off season hasnt showed up ..Cause he is a bum

well we have some players saying he was out there, the sports writer for the local paper (as pathetic as it is) saying he was out there, and according to a poster on a message board, some players saying he wasn't out there.
i would say i'd trust what Ryan says, and think that just maybe julio stopped by, tossed a ball or two back and forth, being that he is healing from surgery, and not supposed to be running, and not under contract, didn't hang around very long. a few more guys come meandering in after he leaves, and then say, 'haven't seen him'...
did that happen? i don't know.... COULD IT BE THAT WAY absolutely could. nothing against sportfreak at all, maybe she needs to just ask Matt and get back to us. As for Franks being lazy, and TD not being able to pick up secondary players, Moore, DeCoud and while not outstanding, and not what we'd all hoped to be, DRob had a solid season last year after getting over the TC injury....

This is why you don't belong here.
You know damn well that Matt Ryan, Ledbetter, Schultz, Dave Archer, and whoever else has put something in print about this (not to mention the radio interviews where Matt said the same thing) are not "LIEING".
SportsFreak herself admitted that the 5 players she spoke to simply didn't see Julio there but that doesn't mean he hasn't been meeting with Matty and JPW throwing and going over the playbook before or after everyone else was there or gone. Hell, Julio himself even admitted that he was living with JPW for a while until he either found a place of his own or the lockout ended and he could move into the rookie dorms in FB.
You yourself even said in previous posts that you're not comfortable with him participating without having a contract. Not to mention, he's not been given the OK to do anything by the doctors until after this weekend (or is it next weekend even).
It's not some idiotic conspiracy to "plant a story" and you fucking know it. This is why you should be removed from this place. Your agenda driven mud slinging has no business here and ruins good threads.

That is correct I dont want him running or doing any physical activity but that doesnt mean he shouldnt be out there with the team seeing them practice and see how Ryan runs the offense .
Not doing a DRIVE BY ...Julio Jones showed up shook hands with Matt Ryan and JPW and snuck out the back door before other teammates can meet and greet our new draft pick ..
this is my thread I posted your in it .
FUCKING FUNNY ..
1) I post Julio Jones not running
2) Now come to find out he is not even there with his teammates watching or meeting
3) Dunta Robinson who got his $$$$$$$$ last year doesnt have the backbone to be out there with the team after his very sub par season and ass kicking in playoffs oooooooo and he was beat that game as well

Dunta has been in Alabama and north GA helping tornado victims. Way to call him a "bum".
You have no freaking clue why anyone has or has not shown up to these voluntary practices. Yet you're still popping off with complaints.
Julio could have spent HOURS with Ryan and JPW working on stuff and then had to be some place else... Oh yeah, like ALABAMA where he too is helping tornado victims.
Hello, there has been a tragedy with significant lives lost in Alabama and north GA, where these 2 guys you're crying about are from.
Get a fucking clue.

Swift : Julio is in Bama helping out the community back there, just like he did post Katrina.
You don't know what the hell Robinson has been doing so don't conclude that because he is not there that it is not for good reason... Stop pushing you agenda, stick to facts you can verify rather than this he say she say stuff. Seriously your desire to throw our players and this franchise under the bus is remarkable I bet the Petrino/Vick years were like mana from heaven for you.
Coop: What I meant was our guys seem to be leaving us before they even get to that point. It seems like we are willing to let them go before they get to year 5 in many instances or that they won't get to year 5 with us. I'm not advocating giving these guys the chops. I find it difficult to understand though as our safeties have developed very well thus far in comparison to our CBs.

Julio Jones has been working out with Matt Ryan and JPW but was not at this specific team workout.
Watch this video.

"When I first met him, he was enormous. I was like, 'This guy is a monster.' But he's smart, intelligent and we talked about some offensive football."
-Matt Ryan, dutifully executing front office directive to lie about Julio Jones attending a workout
"He was catching balls the other day, and his reach is still so amazing. It's pretty sweet. He couldn't run. He's still working on his foot from when he messed that up, but he looks good. He looks really good."
-John Parker Wilson, also in on the sinister plot to make fans believe that Jones attended a workout
This thing goes deep. Somebody call Trump.
