Twitter posts about Julio Jones not true

If you follow the Twitter rumors, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones broke both of his legs in September when he hit was by a little old lady who ran a red light.

Then it supposedly happened again Monday.

And according to the rumors, the same thing has happened to Michael Vick, Ben Roethlisberger and Arian Foster. Folks, don’t believe everything you read online.

We’re not even going to link to the bogus story floating around on social media. It’s simply not true.

When the Falcons host the Seahawks on Sunday at the Georgia Dome, Jones will be there. And chances are good he won’t be wearing two casts.

Actually, last year Alabama wasn’t even good enough to play in the SEC Championship game (Unlike UGA.), so you never even played Georgia.

This was a NFL showcase for Alabama…so when the Falcons beat the Seahawks will we have to play Alabama or are they playing the winner of the San Fran v Greenbay game

Rise up on these!

@Bulldog Mike

I was thinking the exact same thing. 5 or 6 SEC teams beat ND. 5 for sure. Sad thing is I just seen the final AP poll and ND is 4 and UGA is 5?! 5 or 6 SEC teams beat ND and several more across the nation and they are in the NC game and ranked 4 in the final poll?! At the end of the season ND almost and SHOULD have lost to Pitt….a top 10 team would have easily beat Pitt. Pitt HAD THEM BEAT….Common sense and consensus was thrown out the window and ND and their undefeated record got the shot they didnt deserve and most everyone knew this and we were absolutely right. Oregon and Texas A&M were EASILY much better than ND. Does anyone think Oregon or A&M would have gotten blown out? Or should have gotten beat by PITT at the end of the season?! Early, very early in the season it would have been understandable but not very late in the season….ND ranked 4?! They are not a top 10 team. Sorry. They are not. Bama, Oregon, A&M, UGA, UF, are top 5 I think. Nd isnt in the 2nd 5…SC was better, FL ST, Clemson, Ohio ST if eligible, Stanford, maybe LSU too. Heck Vandy and Ole Miss would give ND a good game. PITT did! #4?! Where is the common sense. ND should have been told:wait until there is a playoff. You are undefeated but you arent the 2nd best team in the nation by a longhsot in the mind of the vast majority of experts or fans…Oregon or A&M would have been a game at least. They proved themselves. ND should have lost to PITT the last couple weeks of the season! #4?! #11. MAYBE!

Bulldog Mike and Columbus…

…enough with the SEC cheerleading and whining. Yeah, the SEC is the best conference in football. And if it makes you feel better that ‘bama beat the snot out of ND, good for you But really, who care’s who’s 2nd, or 3rd, or 10th, or 50th…you’re either first, or you not. And you’re not. Get over it and start getting ready for next year, when UGA will, according to UGA fans, capture that elusive NC. BWAH!!!

Here’s hoping the Falcons are more authentic than Notre Dame.

Amen Drew, who cares who’s 2, 3, 4th ect…….If you are not #1 what difference does it make. Alabama is the National Champion and no one will ever remember who finshed 2nd years down the road.

Man I will bet anyone who forked over big bucks for an ad running after the second quarter last night was pissed. Just goes to show that the college victory based ranking system is fundamentally flawed. ND had o business on the same field as Bama last night. The got embarrassed in front of a national audience and looked like he JV squad. Yet ESPN and FOX were all about the Irish till the beating started. The same group appears to be all about the Seahawks (you know the team that can’t beat the Rams and had to come from behind against Peg Leg Pete and the skins last week?). But that tune will change next Sunday oh about 1:45pm when the Falcons are up by 21. Want a fun fact? With a 13-3 record the Falcons managed to beat every team they faced this year at least once losing only in 3 divisional re-matches.

I guess that also means ND could beat 5 or 6 teams from the Vaunted SEC too if my math is correct. It’s 1 game and everyone else wishes they could have been playing last night instead of Notre Dame…..or are you actually GLAD you weren’t the team that took the thrashing….Give Bama all the credit. And yes, I am an ND fan.

Hey old timer….you should give credit to the national media. ND should not have even been in that game. Should have been another rematch of two SEC teams. Either Alabama vs Texas A&M or Alabama versus Georgia. That would have been for the national championship. I am sure Ala would want a rematch against the Texas team and Geogia would want a rematch of the Ala game. Actually Ga would like to have 15 more seconds on the clock against Ala.

old timer – no one will argue with you… yes, Notre Dame could likely beat 5-6 SEC teams… putting them square in the middle of the conference. Nothing to argue there. The only thing that’s arguable is should ND have been in the BCS Title game? Honestly, that’s not even arguable at this point.
