Re: After kicker tryouts, New Orleans Saints sticking with Shayne Graham

Now, I'm a Marques Colston fan as well as a Saints fan...

That said, those drops - I'd leave him inactive for a game...

Same with Grubbs or Goodwin or yes, even Evans...

Also, let's not kid ourselves, it's become apparent in recent weeks by way of Twitter that Junior Galette is not worth the money nor the twitter headaches he causes, why not play the guy that is showing the only hustle in the fourth quarter the past few weeks?!?

Kasim Edebali...

Yes, he's inexperienced and yes he needs to refine his skills, but this is part of the learning process and it's time we accelerate his and hasten JG overpaid, specialist act...

That's the message I'd like to see sent...

Re: After kicker tryouts, New Orleans Saints sticking with Shayne Graham

As much as we knock Galette he's coming off a 12 sack season. He leads the NFL in QB hurries this year. The guy doesn't suck.

Overpaid? This year, yes. But not for what he's given the team in previous years.

A bit of a *****? Maybe. But a good coach can turn that around.

I wonder if he, like Brees, is trying to overcome an ineffective line.

Well if we're so convinced that "sending a message" is the way to motivate....,

I always hate to watch a FG or a extra point. At this point they might as well go for it on 4th. What can it hurt they are always down by a lot anyway.

Graham is the least of our worries.

I think as the offense goes, he goes. In other words, I haven't really seen Graham put the offense on his back. If the O is down - so is his performance.
