I saw three drops yesterday. I can't find the stats on this crappy hotel computer. Drops from everyone. Dropped passes, injuries and lethargy. Sad display.

Re: Maybe we won't make the playoffs

I would still take Graham over any other TE in the league but I feel ur frustration. We don't do very well with first rounders anyway.

These home fans walked out at the 4th quarter. Those footsteps are heard all the way up in Benson's suite.
4th qtr? I wouldn't have faulted someone if they told me they bounced at halftime in this one.

Not saying I'd have done that. Just saying I wouldn't have faulted someone else for it. The team acted like they didn't wanna be there, why should the fans?

I wasn't able to attend this one live, however I turned OFF my TV mid way 3rd quarter & helped my kids with a science project. Just couldn't stomach much more. No fight whatsoever.

Re: Maybe we won't make the playoffs

After watching Gronk this year, he's clearly better than Graham.

Yes, Graham is good. Yes he can dominate mismatches but by nature, that's what a mismatch is...

Gronk however completely steamrolls anyone who gets in his way.

Right now, Josh Hill is performing on Graham's level.

I have to say that JG is nowhere near the Gronk talent. I am talking about "catching the football". That guy has glue on his hands and makes Brady look better than he really is. In every game I see bad throws from Brady (behind receiver, too low, 2-3 yds off target) and somehow that monster makes tha catch (sliding, diving, out-muscling opponents...).
Brees has to hit Jimmy in the chest every time or place it right above him for grabs. Small margin for error. And now he is dropping those also...

Plus it doesn't matter who lines up on Gronk, he's physical enough to beat them

If someone gets physical with Graham he wusses out for the rest of the game.

what the saints need to help Jimmy out is a WR that is not afraid to go into the middle of the field. that was the big difference between Cooks and Beckham.

I am hoping Breshad Perriman, South Florida comes out myself. Brett Perriman kid. every one has him as a third but he maybe one of the surprise picks on draft day going much higher than people thought.

This is an area that has been killing the saints. IMO

Do why have a psychiatrist on staff?

Lay that kid on the sideline table and let him talk it out!
