For those of you who follow Brandon Graham's Twitter account @BGraham54, you may have noticed his tweet from Monday afternoon:
its time to get ready for them Green Boys this week! I cant wait to whisper something in Aaron Rodgers ear.....SACK!!!!!!
When reporters told Rodgers of the rookie's taunt earlier today, Rogers was quick to respond:
Is he? I enjoy the banter back and forth. Always have. I enjoy going to a hostile environment. It just adds energy and electricity to the game. And Brandon's a really good player. He's going to be a really good player for a long time. I'm hopeful we'll be able to keep him off me and out of my ear.
As always, it's great to see the team fired up for the first week of the regular season. Graham seems to have a high level of confidence (and rightfully so) after stealing the starting defensive end position away from Juqua Parker during the preseason. Here's hoping that he converts that enthusiasm into defensive production, as the Eagles will need to bring everything they have against a Packers offense that finished third in the league in scoring last year (28.8 points per game). A few sacks and maybe a fumble recovery for a TD by Graham would be great. Please? I'm playing PHI defense in my fantasy league this week.
