Jimmy Graham - How High Should He Be Drafted ? (1 Viewer)

ETA: Keep in mind Payton and Brees have a score to settle with the NFL, this year is not gonna be pretty for opposing defenses.
:rolleyes: give me a break. Such a ridiculous line of thinking.I find it funny when people confuse real life with tv soap operas.
So you don't think Payton has a chip on his shoulder? What a ridiculous thing to think after he was unfairly suspended for a whole season of doing what he loves, I'm sure he has no interest in making the league his ##### this year.
I'm sure he does have a chip on his shoulder, but how does that translate? Will he now call more of his "secret" plays that he's been saving all of these years? Wil he coach harder? Saints are going to be a great offense either way.
Pretty simply he could just decide to continue trying to score touchdowns late in games where the Saints are already leading by a good margin, which is what the Patriots did. They didn't take their foot off the gas until the last whistle blew.
That hardly gets back at Goodell - but you're right that is possible.

Making him hand over the silver Lombardi hardware in person at the end of the season might feel nice.

Sure, but that just goes back to is he going to coach "harder" to make that happen?

Apparently you missed that 2007 season where Belichick ran the score up numerous times after the whole "spygate" controversy in week 1? Yes, coaches are human, and if they feel slighted, they can quite possibly take it out on their opponents.

I get what you're saying, of course you're right, But there is this: 2009 (SB year) the Saints scored 50 more points than last year; in 2011 they were 13-3, had a playoff win and one loss (memorable, ridiculously narrow game, they were definitely SB qualified) and they scored 80 more points than last year.

If the Saints do that kind of season scoring, and maybe even more (that's not just a "feeling", it's common knowledge around here they are gunning for it consciously) that's another 50-80+ points to be spread around and Graham will be the number one candidate for those extra points.

Maybe not, but I think that was the point the original poster was making with his comment.

You don't think estimating how many total team points will be scored has anything to do with estimating how many individual player points will be scored?

Ok.
