Thumbs up Saints get Jimmy Graham back at practice

The signals about Saints tight end Jimmy Graham’s status for Sunday have been mixed.

We reported on Tuesday that Graham was expected to be in the New Orleans lineup despite an ankle injury, but Wednesday’s practice came and went without Graham getting on the field. That obviously nudged the needle toward the negative on Graham’s chances of playing against the Buccaneers.

The needle moved in the other direction on Thursday. Graham was on the practice field in a limited fashion, raising hope that the Saints will have him available as they try to keep climbing out of the 0-4 hole they dug for themselves. Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that interim coach Aaron Kromer said Graham does not need to practice fully in order to play in this week’s game, which should mean we go down to the last minute when it comes to Graham’s status.

Kromer also said that the decision about whether linebacker Jonathan Vilma will go down to the wire. That particular wire is a bit earlier in Vilma’s case as the Saints would need to put him on the active roster on Saturday afternoon in order for him to play on Sunday.

I think we can beat Tampa Bay without Graham. Dress him out, but leave him on the sidelines unless absolutely needed. Let that ankle heal.

Don't sleep on Tampa Bay; they usually play us tough and have looked much improved over last year...

I'm pretty sure we've made Freeman look like Tom Brady in the past.

When did that happen? Seriously, when? We are 3-3 against Freeman since he's been there at Tampa Bay. OK. One of those losses was the freak game where Payton was injured in mid-game, and that was still a close game...the other two losses against Tampa Bay were MEANINGLESS games at the end of the season where starters were being rested or were being pulled in mid-game. The three wins against Freeman when the teams were lined up on the field at equal strength, were all total beatdowns. We've beaten them 27-16, 31-6, 38-7. Those kind of scores are not exactly Brady numbers. Chris Reis getting an interception off you is not exactly a Brady-esque performance either.

Like the taller, heavier, blacker Tom Brady ... without the man-purse.
