Falcons WR Julio Jones believes they’ll be fine moving forward if they can get everyone to simply focus on doing their job.
“Everybody have fun but just be on your details,” Jones said, via AtlantaFalcons.com. “Go out here and cut it loose. We can’t get that right until everybody collectively does their job instead of worrying somebody else’s job. I have to take care of Julio and everybody just [has] to take care of themselves to go out there and play and be accountable. Once everyone is doing that together, we can go out there and play Falcon football.”
