Who's going to be better? Jones or AJ Green?

Good question. Going to be fun to watch.

Jones drops passes a lot more than AJ Green does. I like Green more, despite him being on the lesser offense.

I like Julio.

Drops passes, but he makes a lot of incredible ones too.

Not that aj green sucks, but I'm just a Julio fan.

I hear it said all the time that it takes till year 3 for a wideout to get going in the NFL. If that holds true, these two are going to be absolute beasts!!

Texans need to find someone of similar potential in this upcoming draft as Dre hasn't got too many years as a top notch #1 WR left, Walter does a job @ #2 but would be sick in the slot, and Jacoby is JAG who we'd ideally upgrade.

Who knows though, with our recent tradition of making starters out of UDFA's maybe our guy is already on the books??

Jeffrey Maehl to the rescue! (And Lestar Jean, too!)

I like Julio.

Drops passes....

I like Julio *because* he drops passes -- in particular, the last one that could have beaten the Texans against Atlanta.

One of the reasons I started this thread, was to recognize the difference when Julio Jones faces an average defense. Kareem Jackson wasn't on him all day, Jason Allen got a few snaps.... but our defense as a whole held Julio to 4 catches 48 yards (or something) Carolina allowed 3 catches to go for 104 & 2 TDs (lots of YAC).

Green was the more polished guy coming out. Everyone knew Jones had a lot of work to do to reach his potential.
