The Seahawks’ trade for Jimmy Graham in 2015 was met with a lot of raised eyebrows and just about everyone critiqued Graham’s every move in the offense last season.
When he suffered a torn patellar tendon against Pittsburgh in Week 11, the critics of the deal said, “I told you so.”
They said it again as the offense took off without Graham, setting team records behind Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin.
So, as Graham came back from the injury this year, the big questions were: (1) Would he be able to return to his old self, (2) would he and Wilson find the rhythm they had just discovered when he was hurt and (3) how would his return affect Baldwin?
The wins over the Niners and Jets provided answers to all of those queries.
