Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks: Jimmy Graham was a tell against St. Louis Rams

We could have told Seattle this!

In other words, the offense can't rely on running the ball effectively behind Jimmy Graham -- or any other less-skilled blocking tight end for that matter. All players in the NFL have weaknesses, and for Graham, that's inline blocking at the point of attack.

New Orleans knew this. St. Louis knew this. Green Bay will know this. And most unusually, Seattle knew as well, as was obvious throughout the game when they continued to align Graham as a true tight end, but send the direction of the runs away from him.

Yes that is his known shortfall, however Seattle has seen miles of tape on
JG and they signed the deal.
