Every good WR will tell you, you catch the ball with your eyes first by watching the ball into your hands

I foresee at least 6/8more articles about Graham's contract in the next 12 months.... This yielding 6/8 more threads that we will all say the same things in.

People were blaming someone for throwing to him in tight coverage.... Maybe so but the point is moot.

Most good/receivers will tell you the same thing about that type of pass.....

"May as well catch it, your getting hit anyway".

Thats what my coach always tells the WR's, the DB's dont get many chances so when they can hit you they will lol

Like you said, your going to get hit either way just catch it lol

he had some drops no doubt, but from what i remember the whole damn offensive side of the ball had the problem. the guy had more than 80 catches, over 900 yards and 9 td's. that's outstanding. Even more unbelievable considering the drops. Amazing, really.

I don't think we have ever had a TE put up the type of numbers this guy has the last 2 years. He is one of the best in the league at his position. Man we are a spoiled frigan bunch. Holy lord. Maybe we can go back to 10 game 40 catch Shockey. And who did we have before shockey...??? Crickets are chirping because I can't even name the GD TE before Shock. JG is a nightmare to game plan around and he plays with an attitude. He had some drops, no doubt. Many were drops he should have never had- Colston did too. I think there were so many drops last year that we were all calling for a new WR's coach.

99 catches 1310 yds 11td's
85 catches 982 yds 9 td's

I am sorry I just don't see what that bad ass has left to prove

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

I agree. But remember Billy Miller?! Cmon!! WTF happened to him? Let's see....before that we had Boo Williams....he was great for a season or two...I remember the days of Hoby Brenner and John Tice...anyone remember those guys?

Just go to any d1 hoops program and offer a contract to any player not projected in the top 60. Thats somewhere around 300 eligible players

Those are cumulative stats, not performance. It's the same if drew completed 50 passes per game but had to throw 100 to do it, thats only a 50% completion rate. Jimmy is Drews go to man, and Drew throws a lot. Last year Drew threw 670 passes thats more than he has ever thrown in a regular season. As a matter of stats only Stafford threw more attempts. You seem to be misunderstanding my point. In order to be worth 12mm he needs to be clutch more than one season. Being the league drop leader means he is no where clutch.

When the game is on the line do you want to throw to a receiver with 1000 yards or one with a 1% drop rate?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
