I believe the NFLPA introduced film of JG's poor blocking skills as evidence

I would rather have him continue to catch 16 TD's a year than be a glorified offensive tackle. To hell with blocking. His job is not being a blocker. Your standard TE can't run like he can and can't catch passes like he can. Give me Jimmy Graham every frickin' day of the week over a blocking TE.

Deion Sanders is widely recognized as the greatest cornerback of all time, yet he couldn't tackle worth a crap.

It is about time Saints fans realize that Graham's value is in no way related to his ability to block. When you only line up on the OT's shoulder 35% of offensive plays you are not expected to be a blocker.

Tony Gonzalez could block like one and catch like Jimmy, even catch better than Jimmy at times. Are you saying Jimmy is not as special as Tony?

Yes I am. Gonzo was far and away the best TE that ever played the game. If he was Jimmy's age right now he would easily be worth the $12M or more.
