Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

Now that this contract dispute is all over with and both he and the Saints are coming away with a Beneficial deal , it's time to get back to business. Here's what we know.

Yes Jimmy Graham is the ultimate receiving threat
Yes Jimmy Graham is the Best TE of All Time
Yes Jimmy Graham Deserves his Pay.

These things are all a testament to his Unnatural abilities and talents , but if anything were to really set this guy apart from anything the NFL let alone sports has ever seen , what would it be ? What would make this guy the Lebron James of Football ?

It's all in his Mind. He's a kind , passionate , thankful person who comes from under the bottom of the barrel. And sometimes humility although a great quality to have keeps you from that extra Gear. That Michael Jordan gene , That's blood in the water shark sense , you know the Aggression. Not saying he lacks it , but physical corners seem to bring out his feminine side a bit.

A new contract a new commitment to the running game a new season perhaps we"ll also be in for a new , pissed off , Reformed , Revamped Jimmy Graham , all hail Galvatron

You Can't Say Impossible without first saying Im Possible ...

Best TE of all time? Ehh i'm not so sure about that. Aren't TEs supposed to do that blocking thing?

Gonzalez and Sharp weren't good blockers either, and most consider them the greatest of all time.

Jimmy's current stats:
36 games started
301 rec
3863 yds
41 td

For JG to be considered "best of all time", he'll need at least one ring, possibly a Superbowl MVP.

He'll also need to break Gonzo's records:
245 games started
1,325 rec
15,127 yds
111 td

Re: Graham into Galvatron ? Graham 2.0 !

I see your point and I like it. He is humble off the the field but I see Jimmy gettin crunk after gaining 10 to 15 yards on regular plays, flexing his guns, and talkin sh!t. He has the passion but remember that foot injury had a bigger affect on his game more than we know.

If he plays out this contract, he will have made $43.3 million over 8 years. Best TE ever? maybe, but certainly best value ever. And maybe best Saints pick ever as well. Sorry Evans and Colston.

Forget all this "he must learn to block" rhetoric. To truly be considered great, it ain't blocking he needs to master, it's flopping. Tony Gonzalez was THE master of the flop. Jimmy must learn to flop. That's how he will become a truly dangerous man.

I'm not even kidding.

I don't know. I think we can pretty much take it as a given that he will miss or be severely limited by injury for 3-4 games a season. The way he plays lends itself to injury. It's not a knock on him, he hAs played very well hurt in the past. I do think it will limit his stats in the long run.
