Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

I'm not all that upset Graham was traded. I'm more upset on where Graham is going, I don't get why you give a team that's been the NFC Conference Champ two years in a row a potentially deadly offensive weapon like Graham.

A healthy Unger gives the Saints a much improved running game, more time for Brees to throw and could make play action deadly again for this offense. It sucks to loose Graham but sometimes you have to spend money to make money.

We have a plan, we did not do this willy nilly. We have a plan

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

The idea of Jimmy play for Seattle doesn't sit particularly well with me, and I am very surprised by this, but I can't say I'm disappointed in the deal itself.

In 2011, I thought he was great. Ever since then, we've been forcing the ball to him seemingly just to keep him happy, because we sure had other weapons. That bogged us down, plus he had a knack for dropping critical passes. Yes he did some great things and all that great stuff, but these were my complaints about him before they re-signed him last year. It seems the Saints figured it out, and got what they could get before he goes and blows out a knee and loses value.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I agree. Not sure if I ever heard the term "willy nilly",and not quite sure what it means,but I agree.

With no thought of the consequences or just throwing stuff to the wall and seeing what sticks .... basically the opposite of: this move was planned and thought out before it was executed
