Re: Jimmy Graham return in 2018?

Personally think we "went to the well" too often when JG was here. That's why he was getting hurt a lot. We would trow to him even when he was playing hurt. Since we traded him, I feel like we have developed a more balanced offense - same kind of offense that brought us to the big show in 2009/2010 season.

Which is why it would make sense. Brees isn't going anywhere for years. He just told Jimmy Johnson that (once again) on the FOX pregame show. He said they'll get a deal don't and he plans to remain a Saint for the rest of his career and he plans to play several more years.

Still, what he said, and how he said it, was in bad taste or bad form - perhaps a bit too passive-aggressive for my taste. That's really all. I'm not willing to give him a pass on it. I'm not ready to throw him out with the bath water, but no pass here. He could apologize and I'd be happy...
How do you know how he said it? Trying to say something in 140 or less characters is a horrible means of understandable interaction. Right? Especially when it was directed at an individual but accidentally posted as a public tweet.

Jimmy Graham flagged twice for goal-post dunks - NFL.com
In your mind. How do you know what those that matter think? You don't is the only answer.

Oh I don't know - I'm just going on what I heard (or read), that's all. I'm not a Jimmy hater.

BUT

Maybe he should have used better judgement, assuming he wasn't being snarky. Personally, I think he was being snarky, but that's just my own opinion.

But also keep this into perspective. Players excell in the Saints system because they fit it. When players leave they it generally doesn't turn out as well for them. Their best years usually end up the ones they spent with us. The one WR I can't think of right was good with us left and was a complete bus then comes back and is good again.
Was that Robert Meachem?

Graham was good while it lasted, but it's over now.

Plus once teams learned how to take him away, Brees was lost.

He deleted it immediately. If he was wanting to be snarky he would have left it out there, right? It was supposed to be private to Hicks and he screwed up.

See, to me, if he deleted it immediately it means he probably knew it was snarky when he posted it and tried to take it back.

Doesn't matter if it was private or broadcast nationwide. He said it.

Maybe he regretted it - maybe not. I'll never know because he didn't elaborate publicly.

He sure did seem awfully happy to get out of town tho...

Nooooooooooo!!! I know I already said that, but just wanted to make sure I'm heard. That weird bromance between Drew and him just ain't good for the rest of the team. Too many good hands out there right now to be ignored.
