I think you are exactly correct--but to be fair, Brees does spread the ball around pretty well, maybe this year slightly less.

I suppose this was a humbling week for Graham and his salary negotiations then. I suppose he should get paid at least as much as the best though. It seems like he should've made a few of those catches, but was kind of hot-dogging it, one-handing the ball.

But let's face it, the offense started very sluggishly, then the last two series they totally changed tactics, ran the ball six times. They knew they needed a first down, at least one, and I think maybe a screen pass, or something rather than a straight run should've been called, even with the interception risk. Runs have been shut down somewhere between 0 and -1 yards all year.

That wasn't hot-dogging. Talib, usually had hold of the other arm.

Re: Jimmy Graham getting an MRI on his foot

I was expecting to have heard something about the scan by now!

Whats going on?

Oh! and one other thing about the Saints v Pats game! One of the main reasons that the Pats were productive on offence was the fact that they used the "hurry up" so often.

Why don't we do that so as the oppositions defence doesn't get chance to settle??

Just a thought!

We have a bye week, Payton usually gives out his first injury report Wednesday game week. Doubt we hear anything until Wednesday of next week...

I feel the hurry-up offense can be a weapon and a disability at the same time. Several times a game, hurry-up teams "hurry-up" and go 3 and out.

The Saints thrive on ball control and time of possession. We string endless drives together, sometimes getting 1st down on 3rd and long. It's agonizing for opposing defenses and a little demoralizing.

I think the hurry-up is effective in certain situations when the defense is in a bad defensive scheme, but only with wrong personnel on the field. Running it out the blue is difficult even for seasoned pro teams because it makes for a mixed tempo drive, which eventually throws the offense off rhythm.

Because Payton likes to change personnel too much.

Graham's injury is not believed to be serious per our favorite source ESPN.

Re: Jimmy Graham getting an MRI on his foot

The recipe for the nullification of Jimmy Graham has now been codified.

He has peaked.

How about that GROUND GAME, huh!!??
