Julio Jones sets Falcons single season receiving yardage record..with one game to go

He's good at football, that Julio.

With his huge game against the Panthers, Julio Jones has officially earned yet another franchise record.

Julio broke his own record, of course, which came with his 1,544 2014 campaign, and he's got a chance to challenge the NFL's single season yardage record before all is said and done. Even in an up-and-down season, Julio has been earning every dollar of his massive contract as the most dominant weapon on this Atlanta team. I'm hoping the Falcons will be on the upswing in 2016, and if they are, Julio will be a crucial part of that.

Congratulations to the man who is  very clearly the most dominant wide receiver in Falcons history, and the man who should own every single receiving record if he stays healthy. Until then, he shares the field and the record books with Roddy White, and that's pretty special.
