You don't really think that Sean Payton isn't in the middle of and completely onboard with every trade or draft pick that happens with this team?

They are expecting the same from others, they pulled the covers off of JG.
In Jimmy's defense there are only a few teams capable of doing that. Seattle was one of the very few.

Really? You and I must have been watching completely different games at the center position.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

I know some (not just this site)find it hard to accept this trade,but I think it was a very team first move. I'm gonna miss Graham,but I would rather give up 1 superstar to gain 2-4 good players that can contribute and keep us in the playoffs consistently than keep that one superstar who's basically declining in production because of injuries and his QB can't stay upright. Look around the league...alot of teams are releasing and trading top players. This happens every offseason,this off season seems to be more extreme than others. Doing this keeps teams competitive. It's gonna be nice next offseason to have that extra cushion with the cap,and just that alone makes the trade easier to swallow.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

Bree's didn't like graham as much as we thought. Well at least in terms of money I don't think he honestly cares about being a saint. Maybe he was targeting jimmy so much to get him paid also.(no doubt him and jimmy are friends) I believe if Bree's would have taken a paycut jimmy would still be in New Orleans.

Welcome back.
Now jimmy graham cracker is gone. I must admit I love all of the optimism I'm reading on here but let me shed some light on a few things. First things first who in the f@#$ is drew gonna throw the ball to now?
Let's take a look at the receiving stat line from last year's Pittsburgh game:

Player Team Recpt Yards TD Long
----------------------------------------------------------
Kenny Stills NOR 5 162 1 69
Mark Ingram NOR 2 -1 0 0
Pierre Thomas NOR 2 16 0 13
Josh Hill NOR 1 17 0 17
Nick Toon NOR 2 17 1 11
Marques Colston NOR 3 16 1 8
Ben Watson NOR 1 15 1 15
Travaris Cadet NOR 2 11 0 6
Erik Lorig NOR 1 4 1 4

19 completions, 5 TDs, no interceptions, and most importantly no receptions by JG, who actually played in the game.

Questions?
We thought oops I'm sorry I thought drew was horrible this past year, this year oh my goodness he's gonna be worst! We resign m Ingram, I like the guy but he's injury prone. I have one question just oooonnnee question, why in the hell we let sprolles go to keep jg just to get rid of his ass this year?
Apples and gorillas there. Sproles wasn't let go to keep Graham. Sproles was let go because his cap number was going up to over $3 million. That was a price the team wasn't willing to pay.
Can anyone please tell me where the silver lining is in this bs?! Our top, let me repeat OUR TOP RECEIVER IS GONE!! ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDING ME! Who dats I'm a die hard fan but if we continue down this road I'm gonna be a dead fan! No ol! No real receiving threat! No running game! No offense.
This is just a bit over the top, IMHO. The trade improved the OLine. Do you really believe that none of Colston, Cooks, Stills, Toon, or Hill are not a receiving threat? As I stated in another post, Brees has thrown for over 25000 yards, 194 TDs, and 2400+ completions in the last 5 years, which include 4 5000+ yard passing seasons. Do you really believe that JG caught 2400 balls for 194 TDs and 25000 yards during that period? Really?!

As for the run game, Ingram has come into his own. And as I just said, the trade improved the OLine. As for improving the running game, there will now actually be tight ends that block on running plays instead of hand waving as Graham often did. Also there is no more "Graham is in the game, it's a passing down."
For all of your sakes let's hope and pray our defense becomes a top 5 defense cause offensively we're gonna be worst than last year. I won't be surprise and you mark my words if we won't be last in our division this year.
I'm with you on the defense. That would be great. But you can forget the offense having a significant dropoff. 9 straight years of top 5 offense in yards, and top 10 in scoring, isn't going to derail because #80 has moved on. As long as #9 has the protection of a interior OLine and a more than passable running game, the offense will produce.
