    I know you clearly haven't followed the Falcons nor his intra week status every weeks, but want to act like you did bc you look at total season stats, make up age reasons for practicing, or injury reports.

    You can look at game logs to see the games he played in and clearly wasn't healthy. It was 3-4 per season. He rarely practiced bc he was legitimately consistently hurt or nursing nagging injuries

    I'm not pretending I followed the Falcons practice reports at all. I'm just saying that clearly the guy who regularly put up 1,400+ yards for years straight isn't as frail is you're making him out to be.

    If he played 16 healthy games he'd break records. The fact is he doesn't.

    Apparently he's really fucking good when not healthy, too. According to you he's always hurt but still puts up numbers.

    Well yea.. He's elite when banged up. When he's healthy he's pretty much unstoppable.

    I’m just not a believer in Tannehill. He’s had two good seasons but I am in anticipation of the moment when he throws 3 ints in one game and the downward spiral starts.

    Eh. He's got 3-4 games a year he "plays" in and doesn't do much. Mainly bc he's hurt.

    The games he's healthy he beasts for 150+ almost consistently.

    One can see he's an elite talent, that just has injuries, and is getting older. If he was 29 and rarely hurt he'd get a 1st++.

    Tannehill is what he always has been. He's athletic, has a good arm, accurate, smart, seems to check all the boxes. But he's not very instinctive and his pocket presence is mediocre. When the play goes as planned he's great though.

    He's a top 10 QB though and in the right scenario he can be the QB on a title winning team. He's just never gonna carry them there.

    He has the 2nd most 1300 yard seasons all time, one behind Rice. Fastest ever to 12k yards. I don't care if he's been out there with a walker, he's elite. Yes, he's getting older so age is a concern. But bringing up "He's always hurt!" while ignoring he's put up all time great numbers is dumb. Dinged up or not, he's been elite for a decade.

    Not saying this to bash Tannehill because I do like him. But his efficiency numbers get a big boost from the effectiveness of the running game and play action off that.

    Yes, let's not pretend offenses now adays are different than when Rice played.

    That aside, no one is saying he's bad. I've literally stated he's elite when he's healthy. Which he is. He'll miss a game and play in 3 that he does nothing bc he's not healthy.

    Look at his fucking game log. He'll have 10 100-200 yd games, miss a game, and have like 3 of 50yd or less. That's bc he's banged up.

    You're offended by the truth that he has 4ish games where he is hurt and doesn't produce. As I said, he's elite, probably more that that, when he's healthy

    So this shows that Moss, TO, and Harrison were freaks and largely avoided injuries. I’m not sure how it helps the case that Julio will still be elite.

    Andre, Wayne, Galloway, Horn, Fitzgerald, McCaffrey, Edelman, Ward, McCardell, Brown, Steve Smith and Jimmy Smith also had top 10 fantasy finishes at age 32 or more. I think Julio as a talent should easily be able to keep his skill level up for a few more years of he's healthy.

    Not saying he won't get hurt and never get back to being Julio. It's certainly in the range of outcomes. But I feel like that risk is baked into the 2nd round price tag and at that price I think it's an excellent bet for Tennessee. I'd have pulled the trigger on that deal if I were in charge of a few other teams as well.

    Is he the only WR playing in today's offenses?

    It's almost like no WR has a steady diet of 100+ yard games. That's not how it works. Even the best have off games. Game plans and defenses change from week to week. "He only had 50 yards, he must have been hurt." is dumb. Hell, go look at 1995 for Rice. 1800 yards yet had games of 21, 41, and 32 yards. The truth is Jones has been elite for a decade, so bringing up "He's always hurt!" is really dumb.

    No, but he was hurt. It's OK that you do t follow Atlanta sports and Julio after he left Bama.

    Yootr right he was never hurt and is always in pristine health. Those 20yd games were because of elite DBs shutting him down

    It's really an unreal steal especially when the contract is 15mm this year, 11 next and could be cut with $0 dead money. If he's still good he's only 11mm in 2023

    Again, just like I said to begin with, he's been elite for a decade. If you want to say he's always hurt, go for it, but the numbers speak for themselves. Fastest to 12k yards. Highest ypg in nfl history. Yet you're out here talking about him being hurt a lot bc he doesn't go for 150 every game.
