An MVP award for minicamp to a receiver, for catching the ball. That’s a novel idea.
June 21st, 20126:59 pm
Sure because your team rewards illegal bounties during the season. I think it’s about time you stop criticizing the Falcons and become a fan.

Thanks DOL, great piece on who I think is going to be a Huge Impact Player in the NFL. Julio Jones came at a steep price…But will prove to be well worth Every Draft Pick. Nice to see a class organization like the Falcons grow their Team the “Right Way”! I feel sorry for those Aints Fans trying to justify their Horrible Organization…by blogging on a competitors “Class” Blog

Oh Yea, My other favorite team I grew up watching at Lambeau Field, when they were Not Good….Has built a Pretty Good Team as well…The “Classy’ Green Bay Packers!

Awarding an MVP for a 2-1/2 day minicamp is not only superfluous, it’s dumb.

DLed, Sorry I had to comment before watching your Video because Loser Seen is here again. After watching the Video may I say You are Looking Good and I don’t miss the Bow Tie:) Thanks or the informative video & GO FALCONS!

Can you say: obsequious?

Wow …..An award for minicamp. I guess the s MVP of preseason is next. Show me in september when the lights come on.Julio is a beast we know, how about some info on the OL or sum of the rooks.
June 21st, 20128:35 pm
It’d be pretty funny if the award was a year of free hair cuts or something.

Thanks for the analysis DLed. Eyewitnesses have all commented how amazing Julio looked, can’t wait to see what he’s going to do this season after a true off season regimen, I wish the RG position wasn’t a battle for the second straight season but whoever wins it this time won’t be by default. Any impressions on the PR/KR position(s) after mini-camp?

Ummm to be fair, we passed up on Randy Moss too in 1998, just about everybody did!

Mini-camp MVP is simply a fun award to give out at the end for the young guy who looked the best.
it would not seem prudent to give it to a long time vet like Turner. Or simple give it to the QB. That’s too easy.
Julio has earned rave reviews from all who’ve seen him play. I expect a BIG season from him.

I still have my “Most improved reader” certificate from the 4th grade. That counts toooooooooo!!!!!!

Julio Jones will be a top receiver in the league for years to come. This award is a symbol of his athleticism and talent (and for a little fun and competition). Big words SEEN for a small mind. Haha your’e not witty just foolish!
June 22nd, 20127:43 am
Keep to words you understand, your spell check is getting tired!
June 22nd, 20128:16 am
Well, it seems clear to me that I wasn’t questioning Julio Jones’ ability or future potential. I was questioning the value of handing out a MVP Award for 2-1/2 days, or better put, a total of less than 8 hours of non-contact practice. So, it’s apparent that you Heard, that all words,big and small, are over your level of comprehension. I think the falcan’ts should take a cue from the Saints organization who spent their last mini-camp day hosting them as a team for a round of golf, building team chemistry, rather than singling out a single player as an MVP for mini camp.
June 22nd, 20128:39 am
Yes, An award for Minicamp. .Get over it people. You do not have to complain and whine over every lttle thing you see or hear. Stay positive people!! We just had a healthy mini-camp which I enjoyed a lot. I swear, you all must love hearing yourselves complain.
June 22nd, 20128:57 am
Good job Julio Jones!……..You’re worrying the competition!…..Go Falcons!
June 22nd, 20129:12 am
D. LED!!!!!! Please don’t call him Ashante again…. you may not get another interview!
June 22nd, 201211:45 am
You complainers and whiners are such idiots … any reasonably intelligent person knows that these types of activities within organizations are done purely for fun and motivation purposes which also assit in team builder effort.

coveted ? really? will he get endorsements for recieving the coveted award. how about the coveted playoff win ? or how about the coveted offensive points scored in a playoff game? or how about the coveted not looking like a bunch of jackwagons every time you get on national t.v. award. what a joke !

ok then , i concur that the award has coveted rewards . party on julio !

If giving out an award for mini-camp MVP is dumb, then complaining about another team’s awards is even dumber!
