Jimmy Graham
 
Is it just me, or has he been disappearing in the second half all year? Is he under triple coverage or something?

We have been out-adjusted at half time in every game this year.

It seems like he isn't trying and his fire is gone. I was wondering as well. It seems like he is afraid to take a hit now

Do explain how it looks like he's not trying... and he does not look tentative on the field at all.

I thought I made that clear. He used to have fire when he caught the ball, he was hard to bring down, and I saw him like swat a ball down when he was going to take a hit. Out of character for him.

And as of last week he led the league in drops. Moore and Sproles probably do now, but for the best Tight End in the league he has been dropping a lot of balls. Something is not right with him. He used to throw people out of the way and would fire up the whole team and now he is just quiet. He is still great but something is definitely missing.

Uhh.. I'm not sure we just watched the same game. He had plenty of fire and did not shy away from contact. You apparently missed his scream after that first down conversion in the first quarter and a stiff arm he laid on someone on a pass toward the sideline.

Yeah I missed that because he would do that after every play last year. And you think he doesn't go down easier now then last year. I find he definitely in the last two games specifically he heard footsteps and shied away from contact and went down easier than usual. I am not saying he isn't great but he set the bar for himself high and something seems off. He also seems to drop balls lately when he feels a defender bearing down. Maybe it was the hit he took against Washington because he took a few big ones in that game and that is when I started to notice a little more tender.

I can agree with the drops. That has been an issue since last year... he has mental farts and needs to work on his concentration. He's going to be unstoppable when it improves.

No doubt he is almost unstoppable. One of those hits in Washington scarred him. The one they fined I think Madieu Williams it was. I think he may have had a concussion or something because it is in his head it looks like. But in all fairness I thought he was dead after that hit.
