Nice story and pictures


I stood there watching as Baylen and his younger brother Bowen complained that their dad was not throwing on target so they could catch the ball. Even Jimmy Graham jumped in on the fun and proclaimed, “Come on Drew, it’s not like you’re an NFL quarterback or something!” Brees eventually told his kids if they were that good at being receivers, it shouldn’t matter where the ball was thrown. Everyone laughed, including the kids.

Cool stuff indeed. Too bad they weren't able to win a super bowl together.

They are going to try to connect on a touchdown for old time sake.

To me, Jimmy still doesn't look right in a Seahawks jersey

I really like that photo of the trio together. There was contention and some bitterness when Sproles and Graham were traded, but good friends are good friends.

I met Sproles the day after he learned he was traded at a paid autograph event in Houston. I didn't know what to say. Just thanked, told him how much we appreciated him and wished it didn't have to be. He was cool, but obviously down and distracted.

God seeing Olsen in that last picture. We had 2, draft and trade, chances to get him and missed both of them...

I know Meachem did a lot of great things for us, but I still think we win it all in 2009 and maybe beyond had we drafted Olsen instead bc of the series of events that follewed the next decade. I know hindsight is 20/20, but I wanted him then, and I can only imagine the numbers he and Drew wouldve put up together. If you look at the butterfly effect from not drafting him and then what we tried to do in pursuing other TEs, youll notice how many draft picks we gave up and the other players we couldve had.

Flame away for a hindsight post.

If the Seahawks cut him he should be welcomed back with open arms.

Could you imagine Cooks, Thomas, Snead and Graham with Ingram in the backfield? We could be back at the 2011 level of offense...

Our offense with those 3 in '11 was ridiculous.
There used to be a video on youtube showing all the TDs that year. I think it eventually got taken down due to copyright :covri:
2011 season still haunts me to this day. The season they should have won their second superbowl. It took me months to get over the SF loss, and I have never been effected that way before or since. But I just *knew* if they got past SF they'd crush whomever was in the superbowl. They were such an offensive juggernaut that year
