Im tiired of hearing how Jimmy Graham is soft

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't think Jimmy is soft, I tend to believe he was injured far worse than we were led to believe. I'd like to see him get healthy and stronger and focus on improving his blocking. But I'm not going ...

I don't think Jimmy is soft, I tend to believe he was injured far worse than we were led to believe. I'd like to see him get healthy and stronger and focus on improving his blocking. But I'm not going to call him soft. You don't play 8+ games with plantar fascitis if you're soft.

You remember when I said he was soft after the Pats game and everybody jumped my case? I demand satisfaction!

But yeah, nobody should be able to jam him at the line, nor should anyone win a jump ball battle against him. And nobody should be able to run through him when he posts up for catch. All traits concerning physicality.
But in the Pats game is when you could see how much the foot injury was really affecting him. Remember in the 2011 Divisional Playoff game against San Fran, dude scored on a seam route with two Niners Defenders draped all over him. JG is far from soft, he was just more injured than we will ever know. I'll say this, for all those who doubt his level of toughness, go out and sprain the bottom, long muscle of your foot, then go out and attempt to do your normal daily routine. You'll stop calling him soft soon after.

Maybe it's not such a bad idea to consider hiring Tony Gonzales as a TE coach...

Question is for me, is he worth breaking the bank for? I say, no ,for more than 1 reason.

Re: Im tiired of hearing how Jimmy Graham is soft

i will stick with my comment for early. he did not put himself at risk as he did in previous due to contract year. that extra effort was missing. so soft

now explain to me how a good TE like Graham becomes elite,

do not disappear in the big games! so soft yet again

lets see what millions of dollars does the man. while he return to a beast form of years past?

Re: Im tiired of hearing how Jimmy Graham is soft

I LOVE JG! ! ! i feel he's an elite te. now the concern i have is the concern i always have with any player, once you get the money do you play as hard as you did before you got paid? we ALL know JG had a foot injury and afterwards went quiet at times so for as him being soft i wont go that far. i feel he was a player protecting himself and trying to keep his stock up at the same time by still going out there playing regardless of the pain he was feeling.

No guaranteed contracts - that is one thing wrong with Baseball

Re: Im tiired of hearing how Jimmy Graham is soft

Ohhhhh the irony. The deep, thick, suffocating irony of a person being tired of hearing others negative opinions..... Has the familiar tone of weekly "we have a huge .003% chance of losing".


You called it like you saw it, and they are calling it like they see it.

Neither a reason to start a thread b1tching about it.
