It doesn't out weight the production. But let's not act like the production is a landslide in 1 direction or the other. It's very close, look at their rookie seasons for an example. There wasn't much difference at all between them. Julio being bigger and faster does count, thing is people want to treat Julio like a combine workout warrior. Somebody who just timed really well and never had production or film to match up with it which isn't the case. I don't think him being bigger, stronger, faster makes that big of a deal, it's a point that matters in the grand scheme of things but anyone who backs AJG are always quick to dismiss those points because they don't help their argument.
Plain and simple you are expected to produce, Green has out produced Jones, and that could be for any number of reasons, but it is clear cut that EVERYONE knows the ball is going to green and still produeces.
Jones has an all pro TE and WR around him coupled with a Very good QB, so he isnt the main guy or only guy to worry about. he is usually matched against teams #2 corner...
Remember if the game was merely who is the biggest and fastest David Boston would have gone down as one of the best.
Your arguing things that don't even matter, so I'm not sure what point your trying to make. Are you trying to tell me that every good, or HOF WR that ever came along only played on teams where there was no good TE, or QB, or other WR? You do realize that just because Julio was drafted by a team who had Roddy White that doesn't make him any less of a player?
That's just a lazy argument that has nothing to do with either of the players actual skill set, people just try to construe this idea that because Julio plays in Atlanta, every team lines up every week trying to stop Roddy White. He gets the best CB, double coverages, Gonzalez takes away the other defenders, so Julio just waltzes his way to production and that is the reason why he is producing.
It's obvious that nobody who says that ever really pays attention to any games and can't seperate AJG and Julio themselves so it's always the easiest. I'm not going to act like I have All-22 film or anything, but it's annoying to hear people act like Julio gets the #2 CB in single coverage all game long. It's definately true that it's easier on a player when you have weapons all over, but too many people mistake that to mean that same player is incapable of doing it on a team with a worse situation.
