    I can remeber in that years draft there was some debate over who was the best TE, Stevens or Graham.

    The debate is over. Graham does so many more things than Stevens and he contributed to 2 SB wins. Stevens can't block and he certainly can't catch.

    More than just the debate, supposedly Holmgren really wanted Graham and settled for Stevens when we traded ahead of them. Seattle took Stevens 7 picks later. I just hope Graham and Watson can both be healthy next year and the OL can improve to the point that they can both be used in the passing game more (as receivers).

    The Seahawks were also gnashing their teeth when we grabbed Wilfork and they had to settle for Marcus Tubbs.

    Stone Hands Stevens

    I was thinking the exact same thing. He had his one touchdown grab, but he was completely open courtesy of an illegal pick on Polamalu.

    But, outside of that TD, he must've dropped at least 4 more balls...

    I'll take Graham or Watson or even Christian Fauria (a Seattle castoff) over Stevens!

    Actually, the debate was Shockey vs Graham. Everybody
    knew Stevens had character issues. I'll fess up. I liked Graham
    more than Shockey. Grahambo just having too much trouble
    staying on the field. I love what he brings to the table. Just
    wish he could stay healthy.

    Peace out. I actually liked Graham over Shockey. Good thing I don't
    draft for Pats..lol...I never say Stevens play in college. Didn't know
    anything about him. I'd love to see Graham and Watson stay healthy
    in 06. They would be a deadly combo. Graham's screen for a td
    against Atlanta was awesome. He leveled one of my guys(B.Scott-PSU)
    on his way to the endzone. His blocking was key in beating Carolina.
    He wiped Peppers out on a lot of Smith's runs. We've all seen what
    B.Watson can do now. Let's hope for good health.

    After getting into the b !tch-slap session with Porter during the week, you'da thunk he would come up big-time. Instead he just looks like a punk.
