Before the Seattle Seahawks hosted the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham got into an altercation with a few Seahawks players.
Graham was warming up on Seattle’s side of the field. When Bruce Irvin confronted him and asked him to leave Graham reportedly said “but I’m Jimmy.” Irvin took his football away and punted it. Things didn’t get any better for Jimmy during the game. He was blanketed by the legion of boom all afternoon and finished with just one catch for eight yards.
In two games against the Seahawks this season, Graham had just four catches for 50 yards. All that embarrassment apparently hasn’t stopped the tight end from running his mouth, though.
Accoring to Pro Football Talk, Graham complained about Seattle’s defense being too physical on Mike and Mike this morning:
“They’re the type of team that they’re very, very aggressive… I think they teach, ‘Listen, they’re not going to call the P.I., so just grab and hold as much as you can.'”
Graham certainly is not endearing himself with the Seahawks, and he’s already not exactly Mr. Popular. After the playoff game Michael Bennett went out of his way to diss Jimmy, saying:
“Nobody likes Jimmy Graham. He’s overrated. I don’t like him as a person or a player.”
Unfortunately the Seahawks won’t get a chance to shut Jimmy up in 2014 unless it comes in the playoffs.
Who does this guy think he is? The more you shut him down and beat him up, the more trash he talks. He’s like the Monty Python black knight of the NFL or something. Watch out, ‘Hawks. He’ll bite your legs off.
The NFL should not give Richie Incognito another chance
