Graham & Sproles

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; With all of the attention (rightfully so) on Graham and Sproles I think the Saints may start out this game going to the WR's more and emphasizing the run game. I can't remember which game it was that the Saints ...

Graham & Sproles

With all of the attention (rightfully so) on Graham and Sproles I think the Saints may start out this game going to the WR's more and emphasizing the run game. I can't remember which game it was that the Saints came out firing to Colston, Meachum and Moore and didn't so much with Graham and Sproles.
This lasted until close to halftime. When sufficient respect was paid a little deeper down field with our wideouts, they came back to what they've been doing this year with those two.

Too many ways they can hurt the niners, I can't wait for tomorrow.

The first time Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was told he could play in the NFL he thought the person was crazy. Graham hadn't so much as caught a pass in a game since he was in the ninth grade. Yet, almost four years into a college basketball career that was about to send him to a pro league in Europe, a former NFL quarterback was face-to-face with Graham, telling him he could be a playmaker in pro football.
"I looked at this old guy [and thought], What is he talking about?" Graham said. "This guy is delusional right now."

I want to run the ball, but NOT up the gut. Around the tackles with Collins and Graham leading the way.

I'm not a fan of over-the-guards head-to-wall run plays. Just not sexy with our explosiveness.

However, I'll welcome the trouncing we are about to subject S.F. to in any way that it happens.

There's:

1) They think we will so we WON'T.
2) They think we will, and know we think they know we won't, so we WILL.
3) They know we know they won't think we will, so we WON'T.


Got it? Now, get out there and DO IT!! LOL

I expect a big game from Graham against the 9ers just like Fitzgerald did to them not long ago
