So last night...without a doubt IMO..... Graham was our best defensive lineman.

he put up only 1.5 sacks...but he was constantly creating pressure.

is this possibly the guy who gets the nod to be the starter and eventually (hopefully) a stud? or is he another solid guy? or will he fizzle out and be a bust (like many of us thought he was)?

DISCUSS!!

Short arms, send him to the scrap heap

It seems he would be okay. The bull rush on that half a sack was a thing of beauty. Didn't like he disappear for the second half (like the rest of our defense), but it was nice that he had the same production in half a game than Trent Cole had all year.

To put this into proper perspective, Doug Free has given up more sacks on the season than Brandon Graham has in his entire NFL career.

In all serious, I was one of Graham's biggest fans. He seems to have gotten back on track, I look forward to seeing how he does in the next 4 games.

Graham has actually been one of the Eagles better DLinemen the entire season. He slowly played himself back onto the field and laast night showed why. It'll be interesting to see if he can keep it up the rest of the season. His bullrush is, in general, a thing of beauty.

If he finds some magical arm extending surgery, he would be a beast.

No that sounds logical so you are WRONG! Brandon Graham for HOF!

I won't say future star, but he's definitely worked his way up to a starting role for the future.

He's looking fast, and strong when he bull-rushes.

Tony Romo ate up that non existent pass rush in the 2nd half leading to Washburn getting fired. The story of the season, offenses make correct adjustments in the 2nd half against the Eagles.

He's still averaging just a mere 2 sacks per season. Not impressed.

He did tear an ACL in his rookie year, causing him to miss games and need extended recovery time. But let's not factor that in at all.

Oh yea because Graham is an OT blocking for a QB...
