How Exactly Do You Stop Julio Jones?
The Atlanta Falcons have proven to be the class of the NFC, absolutely destroying both of their opponents in the post-season with relative ease.
QB Matt Ryan has put up some impressive numbers and is in the conversation for league MVP. By extension, the Falcons offense in general is crazy good.
But while there's an abundance of talent on both sides of the ball, there's one Falcon who's far and away the best player on the field.
That would be one Julio Jones.
This cat can ball.
What he did to the Packers on Sunday could be defined as a human rights violation and is illegal in 23 states.
Fortunately, Georgia isn't one of them.
Have a look at this force of nature:
Jones carved up the Pack to the tune of 180 yards and two scores on nine catches.
That's one motivated individual.
Please bear in mind this dude is nowhere near 100% at the moment, nursing both toe and foot injuries that have limited him at practice.
Jones is big time, and seems to particularly relish tormenting the Packers.
That was back in 2014 at Lambeau Field.
Dude went off for 259 yards on 11 grabs in that one.
Which brings us to Super Bowl LI.
Bill Belichick certainly knows how to scheme and take away the opponent's best player, but the sheer physical prowess of Jones may be more than even Hoodie can handle.
This is going to be good.
