Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Jimmy was lighting the league on fire until the NE game. Talib is one of few corners that can cover Jimmy. Talib took himself out of the game doing it too. That's also the game where Jimmy tore his tendon. ...

Re: Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

Jimmy was lighting the league on fire until the NE game. Talib is one of few corners that can cover Jimmy. Talib took himself out of the game doing it too. That's also the game where Jimmy tore his tendon. He wasn't the same after that. He still played, but it was remiscient of Shockey having to score TDs on one leg...the extra gear and jumping were gone. He had the wrist the year before. Before that he was out of the playoffs vs. Seattle. He's physical, but he needs to protect his body a little better. He plays like Ed McCaffrey.

Re: Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

I keep reading about top CB's shutting Graham down.
1) It says a lot that defenses recognize JG's talent and use their #1 on him
2) It shows our weakness at WR last year

hopefully Stills and Cooks draw more attention this year

True, if Jimmy took their #1 CB out of the game, we should have been able to burn them with our other weapons either by run or by pass. Where was Colston? Moore? Stills? Ingram? PT? Sproles?

The addition of Cooks will certainly help.

The O-line was the problem last season. Brees was running for his life back there, to me that was the problem, with more time to throw the happy feet syndrome goes away and the timing gets better. I will say all our WR do need to get off the line better,TE's included. I agree the run would take alot off but you know Payton, throw, throw, throw, that is the only knock I have ever had with him.

Talib, Kuechly and the Seattle guys were wearing him as a blanket

Problem is the refs don't feel as anxious to throw a flag with such a large specimen being defended

Re: Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

he is not a great TE
he is not a great WR

he is a freak some where in the middle. A freak that will one day cause the NFL to come up with a new position title for players like him. there are more and more coming up in the ranks now. by the time he hangs up his cleats i can imagine three or four huge impact players in the nfl like him.

now the defenses are always one step behind so it will be fun to watch the development of players to stop these guys.

David and Goliath. If David had kicked Goliath in the balls or poked him in the eye it would be justified, but dirty if Goliath did it to David.

Shaq had this problem his whole career. He got fouled all of the time, but he was so big and strong it didn't get called like it would for a smaller player.

Re: Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

I agree with the articles assertion that Graham is comparable to Calvin Johnson. Graham led the NFL in fade route catches last year. He has ridiculous physical tools. 6"6 260 lbs and running 4.4 40 yd dash. He claims this and it looks that way on the field. I've never seen a linebacker run with him. The duo of Cooks and Graham is gonna be special and The Saints offense this year is gonna be outrageous.
