    Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and several Seahawks had to be separated during warm-ups for the NFC Divisional Playoff at CenturyLink Field is Seattle. New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and the Seattle Seahawks got into a couple shouting matches before Saturday’s playoff game. It doesn't take much to get the Seahawks going, but Graham seemed to do it. Graham, Irvin and a few other Seahawks had words after that. They sought to match the Seahawks’ overbearing identity, with tight end Jimmy Graham barking at Seattle linebacker Bruce Irvin to start a pregame skirmish, with safety Rafael Bush pummeling Percy Harvin with a helmet-to-helmet hit on the Seahawks’ third offensive play. The Seahawks like to dance on the field, they like to talk, and the most frustrating part for opponents is they can back it all up. "It's always tough to sit up here now that we know the 2013 season is over because No. 1, you know how close you got so it stings even more," Brees said after Saturday night's season-ending defeat.
