I'm with you on this, I have become a big Jordan fan and much rather see Graham go than Jordan.

Drew can make anybody look good on offense... That's what makes a QB elite. We're actually still considering Joe Morgan a viable WR even though he has 10 catches in 3 years. Know why? Drew made him look good.

Because he outran his coverage most of the time and led the league with 40 yard catch average in 2012?!

Don't worry about losing Cam. We won a Super Bowl without him.

Our best defensive player vs. a role player that disappears when DB's get a little physical with him... I'm gonna give the money to the guy that Drew doesn't make look better than he is.

Don't get me wrong, I think JG is an amazing player... but if you asked me if I'd rather have a top WR or JG... I'd go with a WR every time. Maybe trading him would open that up to us. -

Re: Graham gets Franchise Tag...

I love Jimmy Graham. He has a great story, is a great locker room guy, and plays some damn good football. That being said as much as I hate to say it, it makes more sense to me to just trade him. He is injury prone because of the way he plays and I think signing him long term would be a gamble considering what we could get if we traded him.
If we can really get 2 first round picks, or even a 1st and 2nd and free up enough money to sign a few good, starting FA's I say we have to do it.
I just hope he doesn't wind up with a team like the Falcons or Carolina or god forbid SF.

Re: Graham gets Franchise Tag...

Jimmy and any other player can complain about the tag all they want. The PA negotiated it and signed off on the money being top 5. These players agreed to it; time to shut up and adhere to it.

The 'what-ifs' are fairy tales. Someone mentioned Graham could not sign it and sit out the year. How many players have done that? Vincent Jackson? Anyone else in 10 years?
OR, we could get two #1's for him. Again, how often has that happened?

We made contract offers, he said No, he got tagged. No surprise.
