Cyril, someone might call me out on this but, here goes...
I don't think I've been overly critical of Roddy the player, just rather Roddy the person. I think one of the reasons why I thought that Jones trade was unnecessary was because of Roddy's presence on the team. The Falcons didn't need a 1-B, we just needed someone that could generate big plays on occasion, a true 2 (e.g. Torrey Smith).
We didn't need to make that move because Roddy was signed thru 2015 and we were going to get a lot of production from him in the meantime (5 good years at the time of the trade). Roddy IMO is the new Reggie Wayne.
Now as a person, I think Roddy is an idiot. He got a 4 on his Wonderlic, and I think that is a fairly accurate reflection of his intelligence. I think Roddy runs way too hot at times, which leads to him getting A LOT more penalties than I think a lot of Falcon fans think. And I think he gets too much of a pass or leeway for this stupid behavior because of how good a WR he is. He trashes other teams, coaches, and players on twitter, says insensitive things on twitter, starts fights over routine plays. He should be called out more for this stupid, immature behavior. Roddy is almost 31 years old, but he still acts at times like he's 23.
And I do think when it comes to Roddy the player and how much he positively impacts this offense, I've consistently defended and backed him over the years:viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16439
