Allow me to pull back the curtain a little bit. When we do projections for the Monday show, if I need a guy to get me a certain number of points that night, I will project that. This, of course, explains why I had Jimmy Graham tabbed for 26.80 points against the Dolphins on Monday night. And to be honest, that number wasn’t so outlandish. It puts him in the Tony Gonzalez category for Week 4 and it was close to what Graham did on Monday.

Time now to take a look at the unexpected (and expected) from Week 10, and we’re not going to talk about new Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni. Although, if you’ve followed my work, you know I love the move and have called for it the last couple of weeks.
