E.g the one vs browns, Brees overthrew it a little, Jimmy still could have caught it but let it go straight through his hands and it got picked, whilst the browns ran it back Jimmy just walked away.

I've seen Colston alligator arm a few off target passes too. Is he soft? Does he lack effort?

Colston in his prime didn't disappear at the very moment that DB's get a little physical with him.

New England showed the league that if you hit Jimmy at the line he loses interest and lacks effort making the catch.

Listen to yourself. You're basically saying that you know more about this team than a guy who's been playing here his entire career.

As far as anyone here knowing who's a leader for this team it's laughable. You me and anyone who isn't a player or a coach for this team knows exactly squat about what makes a team tick. (or not tick) Get over yourselves. It's fine to have an opinion but that's all it is. And not a well informed one at that.

I remember than one, there was another one this season where he also quit on a fumble I believe, can't recall the game but he could have totally tacked the guy but just stood there. I was shocked to be honest. Very sloppy play on that level. Always make an effort, even if you think it's not a turnover. We have to fix those details next season or it will be more of the same.

Also pushing off FTW when all eyes or on you. Can't do that ever. Almost a given you're not going to get away with it, even with a slight push off.

Where am I so wrong? You can't tell me it doesn't bother you when Graham has a corner in front of him and instead of fighting for every yard, steps out of bounds. His blocking is poor at best and by the end of last season we saw Jimmy playing almost exclusively at WR playing often with Watson on the field in the TE position. I wondered often last year if Graham really has a personal problem with Brees possibly stemming from Brees public stance on Graham's position status. Last year there were multiple times when Graham was thrown less than perfect passes and made almost no effort to catch the ball. The one against Cleveland was unforgiveable. It went right between his hands. Dropping a pass when it's right on target is one thing, but not even touching it.......C'MON MAN!

I've never seen Colston not show 100% effort to catch the ball. When did Colston have a chance to catch a pass and neglect to try for it? I cry B.S. You dismiss my point by saying,"well Colston did it too" which is a weak point anyway considering Graham's contract, when in fact Colston has probably never missed a reception due to lack of effort

Re: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston says loss of Darren Sproles contributed to offensive struggles

I remember Colston slamming his helmet after the fumble that cost the game in week 1, that was the most emotion I think he's ever shown and it was pure sometimes I think Graham is putting on a show and I still don't get how someone of Graham's size gets thrown around like he's Sproles out there. One thing I also didn't get was 1st drive against the Ravens, not a single pass to Graham from the 2 yard line .... really?
