Well, Atlanta made the playoffs two out of the three seasons prior to drafting Jones (including being the #1 seed in the NFC in 2010). Atlanta won zero playoff games during those three years. Last year, Atlanta made the playoffs, and again won zero playoff games.

I think winning in the playoffs on a regular basis is required in order for this trade to be deemed a success. Anything less is no improvement on the years immediately preceding the 2011 draft.
