It should be NOLA all day. As long as your team gets better, that is all that matters. If it means trading with the Dirty Birds, so be it..

As for Jordan, we need to let that alone. He had a down year, it happens, I still think he can be special.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

The interesting thing is what do Seattle do on the interior.
If they cant keep Lynch from getting hit and the pocket collapses its not good. Can they afford the Raiders C in FA or is it a rookie coming in

OMG it just might be a WIN WIN for both teams LOL.
It is funny how when a trade happens one team has to win and one lose. To be honest I didn't think Graham was tough enough to be on this team but perhaps practicing against them everyday might be the best thing for him.
Quite possibly, it will be very interesting to say the least

I think you hit the nail on the head earlier too, the first round pick is our real prize, if Unger can stay healthy then that just sweetens the deal.

How injury prone is this cat we got? How do Seattle fans feel about this?

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

I still think we won; I've seen Graham battle injuries, disappear in games, drop passes too many times in the past couple of seasons to trade for a first round pick...

Depends on the offer and future plans.
He has one year on his deal and if Allen wants a 4-3 d and payton agrees i dont think Ryan has much say. If ts a 4-3 look long time then you make a trade and gets something back. Otherwise keep him,i really rate him but not in a 4-3 D.

All along, I've said that Graham is a WR, and I don't foresee him playing much in a three point stance.
And that is exactly what he will be, a wide receiver. Him, Baldwin, Kearse and our new big body Mathews. Russell Wilson will now have height in his receiving core. I love it. His salary will replace Percy Harvin.

I totally agree. I also got the feeling that he and Brees were in a tiff last year.

In regards to each teams current situations, I'm sad to say it is a win-win
