I think it's somewhat relevant to note the struggles of a player who many people thought was a mistake to trade. They still try to say we miss him, as if somehow all of the other problems we have don't matter. It's all about Jimmy.

I don't revel in his struggles thus far, but I do think he is kind of validating the move. We talk about a lot of things that aren't saints related. I don't know why people are offended by this.

As often as the media says his name every Saint game some would think he is on the team. Hell I heard his named more than any other player the last to NFL games played.

Not offended, IMO all these Graham threads make it sound like some of the fan base is a bunch of scorn female teenagers who can't get past their first boyfriend dumping them.

Perhaps that's the case for some, but I really don't see anything unusual about it, overall. It seems to me that because he was a popular player, some people don't want to hear anything about him now that he's no longer on the team.

Other players who move on from us get all kinds of smack talk, and no one flinches. Like I said, it's relevant what Jimmy's doing (or not doing) when you consider how much whining is still going on about trading him in the first place. It'll die down...

Its like family. You don't let a outsider mess with your brother but its ok for you to beat him senseless.

JG is now an outsider and he is talking smack about the Saints. Therefore he will piss people off.

We all said it on the day of the trade.

Goes to show how well Payton used him in New Orleans, but he still showed his true colours often....whenever we needed a play or he had to be tough, he was nowhere to be seen.

Our WR Willie Snead is half Jimmy's size and twice as tough as him.
