I'm sorry, but while my opinion used to be Brown and Jones is a toss up for number 1, I'm of the opinion now Brown is CLEARLY better than Jones and I'm not sure why anyone would think otherwise. Brown has way better hands and is way more consistent. I honestly can't fathom how people put julio above him at this point, as close as they still are, Brown definitely has the edge.

Because Brown, as good as he is, is just a component of Pitts offense.

The Falcons don't function without Julio. Say what you will about that drop but Julio played that game, and this entire season hobbled as hell. He's an complete athletic freak, his adjusts better than anyone in the leauge, hes the reason Ryan was MVP last year.

Brown is amazing but Julio is a whole nother level.

All Devin needs now is a catchy nickname, how about "Honey Funchess of Oats"?

That's what I was calling him in 2015.

I remember a year ago reading here that he didn't belong in the NFL at all.

It was mind boggling then too. This was from people I don't think are idiots either.

Never really understood the Funchess hate.  After being somewhat hyped for him after the draft I was a little ticked at him the first half or so of 2015 because he dropped like twice as many footballs as he caught before he finally settled down, but he's obviously always had potential and was young as poo.  Once I actually saw him move on the field in a live NFL game and start comfortably making hands catches in traffic I've always thought he had the potential to be a better WR than KB. 

Devin is easily the better athlete between the two.  Also KB is already close to turning 27 in his 4th year.  Devin just turned 23 in his 3rd... same age as rookie KB.  Funch is already pretty much just as good as KB if not better and barring some unforeseeable BS Funch is going nowhere but up from here on out while KB basically is who he is at this point.

Well Julio is bigger, faster and stronger than Antonio.

And Julio is literally #1 in NFL history in yards per game. In what way is AB way more consistent? In fact, Antonio has struggled when Big Ben isn’t throwing him the ball.

Getting to the endzone. Last 4 years he also has more catches.

For some odd reason Julio does not get very many red zone targets.

Funchess will now have to go against #1 corners.  Let's see how he does shall we before we crown his ass.  I have no doubt he's got talent to produce but it gets much harder now that he's the guy.  Greg coming back will take some pressure off I'm sure.

he went against number 1 corners in the last two games. he went against trufant and the dolphins defense, and he's produced really well.

Funchess has much more upside than KB. He doesn’t have the same jump ball ability but he’s faster, more fluid, and deceptive with his route running. He’s got a higher ceiling. The way he churns his legs is impressive for a man his size. He looks like TO lite when he is on his game.

He also faced Malcolm Butler a few times.
