Graham was especially upset that his 47-yard touchdown catch was nullified when he was flagged for pushing off cornerback Perrish Cox.
“It’s interesting how guys grab me everywhere on the field, and I put literally two fingers on somebody and you make that kind of call,” Graham said. “It was definitely not a push-off.
“You know, I’m running down the field and I’m telling myself not to push off. ‘Whatever you do, don’t push off. Just go up and get it.'”
Graham said there was “no doubt” that Cox helped sell the call by falling to the ground after they made contact.
“But he’s a smart player. And he knows I’m a big guy and attract a lot of attention sometimes. So that’s unfortunate,” said Graham, who said he has “rarely ever” seen such calls on Hail Marys. “I mean, the general consensus is, you go down there, you can kick somebody in the chest and go up there and go up and get it and you’ll be fine. But apparently not.”
Jim, Jimmy, James, Jimothy; just be quiet. The fact that an offensive player has the nerve to complain about offensive pass interference in 2014 is hysterical. Also, last time I checked Jimmy, the Saints line you up as a wide receiver because you can’t block for shit, so I don’t want to hear this nonsense about you loving to hit people. You love running around and catching footballs and knowing that any time someone touches you they’ll get called for a penalty. In my opinion, it’s poetic justice that an offensive playmaker got called for a penalty. I think Jimmy Graham is just mad that my superior 49ers are the first team to beat his dumb Saints at home since 2010. Just remember Jimmy, the better team always wins.
