On the whole, I'm glad we did this. This is the "get your sh*t together" move Saints fans have been waiting for since the Cowboys game last season. Taking away Brees and Payton's favorite toy like this - it's a rubicon of sorts. Big time wake-up call for the team. And I bet it helps it out financially at least long-term.

How the trade works out remains to be seen based on (A) Unger's health, (B) what the Saints do with the late 1st round pick and (C) if Seattle can integrate Graham as a WR/TE into a very different style of offense than the Saints had.

And finally, good luck to Jimmy. Nothing personal with him but the team dynamic was going to crap. Some of it Jimmy's fault and a good part of it the fault of others. We really needed to go in a different direction.

Tony Gonzalez. Antonio Gates. Jimmy Graham. There will be more over time, just depends on which teams hit the jackpot.

So what to do with my Graham jersey? Perhaps I can pick off the 80 and replace with a 3 and pretend it was a Shayne Graham jersey all along :P

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
You gauging our fan bases intellect off of what "The Dude" says?? Thats rough.

From what some other people are saying, we are getting more than just a 1st rounder in the trade. Supposedly it was said on ESPN, can anyone verify this.

Well yea lol, but ESPN said we were getting multiple draft picks supposed. And in one of the press releases it said multiple draft picks, so I'm not sure exactly what we are getting.
