Brees: Saints offense will be fine with or without Jimmy Graham

Quote:

“Look at our numbers over the last eight years,” Brees said, via Jarrett Bell of USA Today. “We’ve had a lot of different guys in there. Jimmy’s only been here four years. He’s only been here half the time. We were putting up some pretty big numbers before he got here, and we’ve been putting up some big numbers since he’s been here. Hey, we do what we do. It’s nice when you can have guys like Jimmy, and obviously he’s a big part of our offense. If he’s in there, we’re going to try to get him the ball. We’re game-planning ways to get him the ball, ways to put him in the best position to succeed. But if he’s not, somebody else is going to get those touches. We’ll put those guys in position.”

Totally surprised at his comments...although true...It's not like a player to throw another player under the bus with some of his comments...especially...commenting on how we played well before Jimmy got here...hey...we do what we do...hmmm...

This is why the majority of us wanted to see him traded, if the deal was good enough. He may turn into a prima donna and malcontent giving way to becoming a pariah.

I understand what he is saying, but I hate to see a player even of Brees' stature making comments about another player.

Graham has contract issues at the end of the day those are between Loomis and Graham.  They really are not even a concern of Payton.  Loomis has to build a team and provide Payton the players and Brees has to play with those players.

His comments will they are true and are a reflection of Payton and his system could lead to bad feelings in the locker room.  Brees is the face of the franchise and got his big money deal.  He held his ground and didn't give in on signing his nearly 20 million a season offer sheet.  So when it is time for others to ask for their cut it is his job to be that team guy and let Loomis handle it.

I'm very surprise  Brees is making these comments about Jimmy.What does Brees have to gain for making thse comments ? Is Brees  jealous of Jimmy ? Maybe Brees don't want Jimmy on the team anymore ?  noideanoideanoidea
