Did we win a Super-Bowl with Graham and a bad center or without Graham and a good center? I forget...

How can you not be satisfied with the trade?
Cause we traded someone who proven they can get the job done for a 31 pick that is not proven. Trading a 4th rd pick for a center when we need to replace Grubbs or Evans

Proven until they face a physical defender and then?

Nothing wrong with venting
Coach would have given this trade the green light otherwise it wouldnt have happened imho

Won with a offense and guards that could protect Brees and allow him to step up

Exactly my point... An O-Line who could protect and an unpredictable offense. Not trying to force the ball to Graham in triple coverage praying he catches it...

Fix the defense, the offense is sputtering cause they keep sacrificing it by drafting defensive players that don't pan out or trading players like Sproles now Graham whom were the 1 and 2 punch for 2013

We got a proven player for a proven player. We saved money, upgraded a position of need and got a first rounder. The 4th round pick is a throw in. Yeah you get lucky in later rounds sometimes, but would you rather have given up a 2nd or 3rd? And who says we have to let grubbs and evans go? They are still productive, but if we choose to move on from them because they are getting older than we'd have some cap space, and from there, we can address the matter of who replaces them. It's called one thing at a time. Did you expect us to fill every need in one trade?

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