Jimmy Graham Is Just Unstoppable

Graham was targeted 15 times on the day, and hauled in 9 receptions for 134 yards, including 2 touchdowns.

It really didn’t matter who was on Graham today, whether it was a corner, safety (Tyran Mathieu mainly had that duty), linebacker, or a defensive lineman for some reason, Graham just made it happen. He was able to get a ton of separation, and even when it looked like he wasn’t going to haul it in, he still came through.

At this point, the only way you are going to completely shutdown Jimmy Graham is to ban him from your stadium. I think his payday should come shortly (Make It Happen Loomis)!, and for those who used to play NBA Jam, ‘He’s Heating Up’.

I’ll always keep saying this, but, how bout that Top 100 snubbing of Jimmy Graham? Someone should fire their staff.

    Our next three opponents are undefeated (unless the Bears choke tonight) and two of those games are on the road. The Saints looked really solid today but next week the rubber meets the road!! If we can get a little better protection on the O-line and get back into 30 point mode, the Saints can take any of them!

      It will be something to watch for. The sad part is that this isn’t the most brutal part of the schedule. However, to your point, we have a string of tough games ahead.
