Yeah,the media jumping all over the Saints for the deal as Graham is the highlights player. Fair trade all round. both team should be happy as long as the players stay fit

For the Saints to let Jimmy Graham go being 1 of the best TE's in the game they know something we don't. #Truth

Because he was an All-Pro tight end. The contract last year wasn't signed with the expectation that he would be traded a year later. It was signed with the expectation that he would be a healthy All-Pro game changer for the length of the contract. 2014 simply did not turn out that way.

They better come up with something big to make up for this loss and let's hope we don't have to play Jimmy & the Hawks in the playoffs.
Let me correct that for you:

They better come up with something big on the defensive side of the ball...

No matter how much one likes fantasy the math hasn't changed:

Top 10 offense in points and yards
Bottom 5 defense.

Imagine if we signed Browner, tramon Williams and Mason foster!

I hope we hear news about Foster soon.

I dont think its hate,more than the normal people looking on the bright side of the deal. I think the concern are there that Jimmy wont have a long career with the new tackl rules and players taking out his legs. If your in Seattle you are saying we got rid of close to a second rounder and a centre that is starting to break down for a probowl TE.Its natural we did good

It doesn't.

We address defensive improvement with defensive moves.

If we sign a CB how does it help or OL?
If we sign a OG how does it help our LB's?
If we sign a LB how does it help our WR's?

Jeez, sometimes I think we have the dumbest fanbase in the NFL

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

The question that will be answered is how much of JG's production was JG's talent and how much of it stemmed from Sean's offense and Brees' HOF career...
