Jimmy Graham leads the NFL in receiving yards after five games, with 593 yards and 6 touchdowns. He surpassed the now-injured Julio Jones this week to take over that top spot. He is tied for 13th most receiving yards through the first five games since 1960, and is now easily the most for a tight end to open a season. (Ben Coates in 1994 is 2nd, with 529 yards).

He is a tight end. He splits out wide. He lines up in the slot. He, sometimes, comes out of the backfield. He is big, and fast, and a matchup nightmare. His official line this week was 10 catches for 135 yards, with no touchdowns. It was the fourth straight game with at least 100 yards, though he did not score. It is the first time all year he was kept out of the end zone. However, he was an integral part of creating scoring opportunities in this game, and as we will see, played a role in a sweet touchdown play, by his mere presence.

It's getting to the point now where everything has been tried and nothing works. Jam him, he will bust through, double cover...it means two defenders will look silly instead of one. NFL teams are not designed to deal with it.

I am starting to get the "all eggs in one basket" feeling.

Interesting. But when Miami tried to double Graham Sproles took off. Double them both you open up two other guys.

Still would love to see the running game gain some more yards.
