New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham, Jahri Evans invited to NFL Pro Bowl

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Well... it says they were invited. Does it mean they really have to accept? If you were in their shoes and played as poorly as we've all seen, would you be embarrassed to go to the Pro Bowl?...

What a joke! Shows what a stupid sham the pro bowl voting is.

Like I said in another thread. I think Evans still has it and can perform at a high level. He just doesn't have the supporting cast he used to. He had the benefit of playing next to another All Pro guard which made him better. He is still a top guard in the league without one. Brees playing style is one which works best with offensive line strength on the inside as opposed to tackle. Let's find another high end guard and Evans will last as long as Brees needs him too.

I hope that tweet is an eye opener to the casual saints haters.

Wow, painful to see. both were average at best. Honestly we didn't deserve diddly squat, IMO.

OTOH.... Grambeaux did have 10 TDs this year.

People also forget that Graham played hurt for 3/4 of the season. Shoulder injuries are no joke. I think he was mostly in as a decoy to tell you the truth.

Re: New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham, Jahri Evans invited to NFL Pro Bowl

JG had the stats to be in the Pro Bowl. He still has really, really good numbers for a TE this season. We are talking about a "down year" for him being 80 something catches and 800-900 yards. That's not real terrible if you think about it.

Maybe the injury did take away his effectiveness. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
