I've brought up how much Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Clint Session has played, given the contract he received in free agency. He was in and out of the game often as usual on Sunday, but I think one play showed why he's pulled so much on passing downs. Saints tight end Jimmy Graham caught a 59-yard pass late in the fourth quarter, where he just blew past Session down the sideline. Session had no chance on the play, and threw up the "OH NO" hands when Graham was tackled.

In fact, the Jaguars couldn't stop Graham all day. He ended with 10 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets. Paul Posluzny had solid coverage on Graham on a seam route, that saw Graham doubled, and Brees missed him. Not only did Graham kill the Jaguars, but Darren Sproles did as well. Sproles had 5 catches for 56 yards coming out of the backfield. For the most part, the Jaguars linebackers have played well and have been adequate in pass coverage. It was obvious yesterday however, Saints head coach Sean Payton planned to pick on them, and pick on them he did.
