Bomani Jones thinks after seven years with the Atlanta Falcons, it’s about time Julio Jones starting showing signs of “Falcon” getting all over him.
On Monday's episode of ESPN’s "Highly Questionable", Bomani argued Julio’s dropped touchdown pass isn’t to blame for the Falcons’ loss because at some point, even a super star like Julio becomes what he’s surrounded by.
The Falcons, who have lost four out of the last five games, lost to the Carolina Panthers 20-17 on Sunday.
"(Julio's dropped touchdown pass) is the first time he's looked like a Falcon in that moment right there," Bomani said on Highly Questionable. "Do you realize how good you have to be to resist all that Falcon that gets all over you in seven years of playing for that team?
"Give that dude credit for an incredible immune system to with those great hands and all of that speed... You can blame him (for the loss) if you want to, but just look around man, at some point, you become what you're part of."
