Re: Jimmy Graham

Feel blessed? I'm as critical of our coaching staff as anyone right now, but Akiem has been here a while and done absolutely nothing. We traded dead weight for a guy I've barely heard of. I doubt he's going to shine. He should have done so already, if he really wanted to bad enough.

But hey... At least you're shining, right Jimmy? Oh yeah, that's right... You're a blocking tight end who occasionally catches passes now. Clearly the Seahawks must know what's best for you.

Re: Jimmy Graham

Sad. I really thought better of Jimmy. Dang bad judge of character for me again. Just like I give most of you on this board the benefit of the doubt when I shouldn't. Did I really just type that?

Re: Jimmy Graham

Every door that closes a new one opens up somewhere. I'm not exactly defending Jimmy, but it is really hard for the "sunshine pumping" fan crowd to accept the fact that we are basically a dumpster fire of a professional sports team, right now at this moment. I promise I won't be one of them, but I will guarantee you that if things do not go swimmingly well on Sunday night, you will hear boo-birds in the Dome, raining down pretty early on....I even heard some boos during the Tampa game and frankly I was surprised at how fast and early they came out the woodwork....

Plus, from the pro athlete's perspective: everyone knows the Saints have NO CAP rom whatsoever. If you are a young, up-and-coming professional athlete on the Saints, there is NO MONEY for you here anymore...it's all been used up by Junior and Byrd and Drew and Jimmy and guys who were cut, and whoever else it was already spent on. You are either one of those FEW guys getting paid really well by the Saints, or else you are close to league minimum like most guys on the team. This is a FACT, people. The only way for a young Saints player to get a raise or make more money right now, is to leave and go somewhere else and get it. And they just shifted Brees so next year there will be even less to go around. That's a fact. Why would athletes want to come here and play for the 0-3 Saints, again? Because of a single Lombardi that the team got seven years ago? I just don't think the team has a very good reputation among the players, these days. It's not a prized destination, for anyone except the few who have already gotten the big paydays here. The rest of them are just barely happy to have a foothold in the league.

Well, ouch, maybe we have been wearing rose colored glasses for the last decade. But it was an awesome time to be a Saints fan if so!
