Disagree, it is not the meat of the trade, Unger vs Graham, but Tyler Lockett and Anthony. The success of the trade for both teams are these two fellas and I say both came out smellin pretty dang good.

Re: Nobody is benefiting from the Jimmy Graham trade

After the fact, hypothetical question:
Would you trade Jimmy Graham to get Stephone Anthony?
Second in tackles, 1 sack, 3 PD, and, wait for it, on the field for 97% of all defensive snaps

Oh, and we got Unger.

Re: Nobody is benefiting from the Jimmy Graham trade

because Graham would give up on blocking assignments putting our QB at risk. That kind of attitude is contagious and doesnt do anything to help the team, I dont care who you are. We were also able to shave a little bit off the cap. We got the better end of the deal believe me. Unger may not look like much here yet, but he has only played 3 games with an entirely new offensive line. It takes an oline weeks, sometimes a season to gel. Continuity is the MOST important thing at that position. Not only is he new to the fold, having other players who have worked together go down every game doesnt help.
Looks like we may have a little depth at LT. When Peat went down I didnt see much of a drop off. The line should be much better after the bye week.

Re: Nobody is benefiting from the Jimmy Graham trade

B-U-L-L-S-H-*-T

We totally smoked Seattle in that trade...

We gave up a bloated contract with a player who already put one foot in retirement (kinda like Major League II (movie) where the players get all civilized)...

We got an All-Pro in return and a first round pick which...

We got a potential Defensive Rookie of the Year (though our second round pick is probably going to negate each other's chances)...

So how the hell that trade didn't work out for us absolutely baffles me...

These yardbarker writers need to quit regurgitating other sports hacks and actually watch the games and have a grasp of R-E-A-L-I-T-Y...

Re: Nobody is benefiting from the Jimmy Graham trade

Try watching a Seattle game with a shot glass.
Pour yourself a shot.
Drink that shot when Jimmy and blocking are mentioned.
Repeat,

Guaranteed drunk before the half.

Max Unger? I will judge him like so many players on this team, when all players are healthy and have some games under their belt. we have yet to see this so far this year. I am even trying to give Rob the same break.
