Brandon Graham Says He's Getting Stronger

Eagles 2010 first round Brandon Graham finally made his return to the lineup on Monday night against the Bears. He finally talked this week about how it felt to get back and how his knee is holding up. Funny enough, the Bears dirty blocking schemes were what put Graham at ease about his knee.

"Yeah, you know I still thought about it. But when somebody finally hit it in game speed, how was it going to be? And you know, two plays in I get chopped by the running back and I'm like, ‘Okay, I'm ready. I don't have to think about it anymore.' But you know, I'm just going to keep building and that's what I'm going to do. I can't wait for Arizona because I know what to expect out there now and all of the little nervousness about my knee is gone. And you know, it's time to keep getting better each week."

He says that one of the big adjustments for him is the new four point stance that Jim Washburn has his DEs employ. It's not something Graham had much experience with, but he says he's getting more comfortable.

"This week, I just told coach I'm feeling more comfortable in my stance now because, you know, that was a new stance for me. I was trying it out during the offseason but not as much - I mean, you know in camp here and there, but I really couldn't do much like all I can do now. But yeah, I'm feeling more comfortable this week."
