Who else lost some respect for Jimmy Graham yesterday?
J. Graham is a great player and certainly one the Jets should at look going after considering the glaring need for a TE, but yesterday's game highlighted both his complete and utter sellfishness and lack of any intelligence.
He scores two TD's in the first half and dunks the ball over the goal post while celebrating. Great Move! You are still recovering from a very serious foot injury so I am not sure jumping 4 feet in the air for a meaningless celebration really helps your team. After the second dunk he did close to nothing in the game and was even pointed out by the announcers as limping on numerous plays. When the Jets defense took him out of the game, based on a combination of halftime adjustments AND hurting himself on the dunking, the Saints did absolutely nothing on offense. Way to put yourself before your team!
This only has merit if it can be proven that he really injured himself on the 2nd dunk. More likely, he was limping because he went much harder in the Jets game than he did the previous week against BUF and the snaps were adding up on him.
Didn't they say it was a Plantar Fascia issue? I've had similar issues, and Lynch was dead nuts on when saying a rest between activities is bad for it. After sitting for a mere 10 minutes and getting up, the pain could be excruciating. I'm far more likely to believe half time was at fault more than a jump.
