Bears vs. Saints Week 5: Enemy & Eye Candy

The New Orleans Saints are currently undefeated. Can the Bears serve them up their first loss of the season Sunday on the lakefront? Not if the Saint’s star players have anything to say about it. With a very deep roster, decease the Saints have a more than a few standout players that made it difficult for me to pick just one enemy this week. It came down to choosing between quarterback Drew Brees and tight end Jimmy Graham, try both of whom have had incredible seasons so far.

THE SAINTS ENEMY 

Jimmy Graham

After much deliberation, viagra I’ve decided to go with Jimmy Graham, since we all already know how productive and talented the veteran QB Brees is in the pocket. Let’s find out more about Graham and why he is a giant threat for Chicago this Sunday.

  • Graham is a freak of an athlete. The 6-foot-7, 265-pound tight end only had one year of college football experience under his belt before entering the NFL, but don’t let that fool you, Graham spent most of his time at University of Miami competing at a high level as a power forward.
  • Graham can run, he can catch, he can score. So far this season the exceptional tight end has entered the end zone six times. He’s made 27 receptions for a total of 458 yards. On those receptions he is averaging 17 yards, with his longest, 56 yards, coming early in the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Over his career Graham has racked up 238 receptions, 3,006 yards and 29 touchdowns.

    Drew Brees

  • Graham was named last week’s NFC Offensive Player of the Week and guess who won award this week? None other than the man putting the ball into Graham’s hands, Drew Brees. The Saints are certainly on a roll and to say that this dynamic duo will be dangerous in the coming game against our beloved Bears, would be quite the understatement.

THE SAINTS EYE CANDY

Kenny Vaccaro

I am beginning to think hotness should be a stat on team rosters along with receptions, yards, tackles, etc. to make this choice a bit easier for me but I don’t foresee that happening anytime soon (or ever). This week’s eye candy is rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro. New Orleans selected the University of Texas safety with the 15th overall pick in the first round of the 2013 draft. In his four games with New Orleans he has tallied 21 total tackles, 19 of those being solo tackles and has also grabbed one interception. Vaccaro definitely has a bad-boy look with two full tattoo sleeves but I think it’s his eyes and smile that make him a real hottie. Vaccaro wears #32, so keep an eye out for him ladies.
