Bengals' Lamur says Jimmy Graham is 'like a dinosaur'

In one of the biggest interconference matchups of the weekend, the Cincinnati Bengals travel to New Orleans to face the Saints. The game will have big playoff implications for both teams coming off losses.

Key for the Bengals will be slowing down Jimmy Graham, whose 56 receptions lead all tight ends. The big-bodied Graham has come on strong the last two weeks after suffering an early-season shoulder injury.

The bulk of the converage duty on Graham will fall on linebacker Emmanuel Lamur.

"He's Graham," Lamur said, smiling as he was asked about what made the tight end so special, per ESPN.com's Coley Harvey. "He's like a dinosaur. He's so big. He's a tall guy."

Lamur has struggled at times in coverage this season. With Lamur on the field, the tight end combination of Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Delanie Walker and Dennis Pitta has caught 28 passes for 339 yards, three touchdowns and 18 first downs, per ESPN.

If Graham has his way in the Superdome on Sunday, it could be another long afternoon for the Bengals' defense.

However, the third-year linebacker believes he knows how to defend Graham.

"You have to put a hand on those guys," Lamur said. "You can't let them get free releases. That's where they make their bread and butter. You just have to have collisions."

Be careful how you collide with a dinosaur, Emmanuel. They could bite.

We should put Graham in more bunch formations, makes it a lot more difficult to press receivers that way...

Jimmy is not going to get calls. If not for that he would be almost unstoppable. Refs will look the other way if Brees goes to the well too often. That's why his catches need to be limited to less than 10 a game. Once he gets into double digits it gets harder and harder.

Pretty optimistic about that match-up. I doubt Lewis will have a LB in single-coverage on Graham the whole game, but it'd be awesome if they did take that approach.

If I'm SP I would throw Morgan in this lineup and create matchup nightmares

i was think more on the lines of an albatross myself. You look at and think to yourself " no way in helll is that going work" but it does with amazing results.
