Sean Payton does that purposely ... Double graham meachem over the top , Sproles one on one against a slow lb , Colston the perfect route runner and stills running wide open ... For Drew not to embarrass their secondary they'd basically play prevent which I'm confident khiry would be licking his chops .... Hell even ingram would be happy to see an empty box ...

For them to say Graham's the only threat is funny because Drew hits 8 different guys every drive ...

The Dolphins will stop global warming before they stop Graham.

Re: Dolphins Must Stop Saintsí Graham

Stop Graham?!?

Then Sproles on an untouchable wheel route,

or PT behind a disciplined, energy zapping screen,

maybe just a long surgical strike to either Toon or Meachem,

better still have Stills demoralize by running past coverage,

or perhaps just stick a dagger right in the heart of the defense with Colston...


(sigh) So many weapons - only one footballģ...

We have to punt because we try to throw a 20 yard pass when all we need is 5 yards. That's what we have to live with when you have Payton and Brees.

Yep.. How many times have wee seen the following play out. Not trying to pick on anyone but its what we see.

Prototypical 3 and outs
1-10 Ingram for 5
2-5 Ingram no gain
3-5 Incomplete to graham
4-5 Punt

1-10 Short Pass to Ingram Incomplete
2-10 Short pass to Sproles for 8
3-2 Incomplete to graham
4-2 Punt


Both Graham and Colston have catch rates of 67% through week three of this season. 1 of every 3 are dropped by both of them

Re: Dolphins Must Stop Saintsí Graham

I'm not sure that even double teaming Graham right now is really going to do that much good in stopping him. He is playing so completely zonked, out of his FRICKING mind, off the charts. You double team him, he will just do the basketball move and swish his arms around and knock everybody away.

Re: Dolphins Must Stop Saintsí Graham

Match ups do not matter with Graham... He alone will either catch it or not catch it... There will not be any of that influence

Re: Dolphins Must Stop Saintsí Graham

There are some posters on the Dolphins message board who advocate putting Dion Jordan on Graham because, being 6'6 and athletic, he would match-up favorably on the Saints TE.

I hope they try it. Not a chance a rookie DE will be able to stay with Graham.

Plus, if Wake and Soliai aren't able to play, it would would mean subtracting another D-lineman from their rush. Brees would have a field day.

Dion Jordan vs. Jimmy Graham

Re: Dolphins Must Stop Saintsí Graham

Going to put 240 up against 270? Best of luck.

They do not realize its not Jimmy's height but his power, strength , and speed that make him nearly unmatchable?


But sure go ahead and put your DE on Jimmy so Brees has more time to hit Colston.


Heads up also Wake is practicing.. I posted it in the thread about him.

Hopefully they try something drastic so the rookie can blow coverages and leave more than just graham open.
