I'm not trippin' any more than Sean Payton is. Act like you've been there 40+ times before.

Sean Payton's post-game conference was brutal. Definitely not a green light. lol
Let's put it this way, I think Graham and others will be running extra laps/torture the remainder of pre-season practices.

I don't care if its the preseason or the not. I am never okay with you taking stupid penalties like that.

It's not a stupid penalty. It's stupid that they have the penalty. Aim your anger where it belongs....... Graham knows what he's doing. If it hurts the team he won't do it. It was a meaningless preseason game. You have to have fun where you can.

He will dunk again in Atlanta on opening week and I will cheer him on.

It was but I loved how SP owned the penalties. Look, there's no way refs throw that many flags in the regular season. Like the extra points, they're using preseason as a "test" and to make a point. It complete bull in my opinion.

Even the accidental hand to the face were being called... If the NFL wants to use the preseason as an experimental period then I don't need to pay $150 per ticket!!!

That was my point. Payton allowed it (at least once) so he could practice longer kicks)

LOL. He'll get that cheer from me if we've got the game locked.

preseason game 3 is the game were we all know the regulars get ready for the season. this should have been Jimmy's present to the home town fan. one last time around before the league once again goes no fun to make sure the commercials air and the game gets over on time.

started with overtime changes - wimp wins.

Re: When is Jimmy Graham going to smarten up?

I am happy for the no dunk rule. Just a matter of time before someone pops an ACL doing it. But that aside, I had no issue with Jimmy cutting up a little, let him have his fun for now. It really isn't a bad idea to get pushed 15 yards back during the preseason on kickoffs, give the team a chance to see what type of coverage guys they have.
