VOTE: Matt’s Top Option – Roddy or Julio?

NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks pondered the age-old teammate vs. teammate question: If teammates were put head-to-head, which would come out on top? Featured in his thoughts are Falcons wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones — darn near a perfect pair for this rhetorical scenario.

White has the numbers and the experience, while Jones has the home-run potential and matchup edge vs. defenders, Brooks argues:

White remains one of the game’s elite receivers, but the Falcons would be wise to make Jones the focal point of the passing game. The third-year pro is a difficult matchup for defenders with his rare combination of size, speed and skills. Additionally, Jones is the home-run threat that defensive coordinators fear in big games. Given the dramatic improvement of the Falcons’ passing game, particularly in the big-play category, I believe Jones should be the priority in the game plan.
