meachem the real thing

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; #2 would be nice but we really need him to develop into a #1. Colston would be suited as a #2. It would allow Colston to be the motion guy more often. Causing all kinds of match up problems....

If Meachem gets going, either he or Colston would present a matchup problem. Can't wait for the pre season games. Meachem has something to prove!

Re: meachem the real thing

Nobody can deny the kid's athletic talent, because if we went purely by that, drafting him wouldn't have been so controversial/crazy.

However, a lot of these kids just have problems adjusting to the NFL. For some it's not being able to digest the playbook, for some it's not being able to adjust to the speed of the game, and for others it's just a maturity issue. In my opinion, we're lucky it's the latter with Meachem because that's something that can be easily fixed if the player is willing to fix it, and it appears that he's willing to fix it.

I think that Meachem will come out and have a good year in 2008. Yes, I don't have any "evidence" about why I think that, but none of us ever have much evidence for our hunches. I just think that he has the athletic ability, and the only thing he was missing last year was maturity and a healthy knee. He has both now.

I agree to a certain extent. Colston is a stud and Meachem would have to be one hell of a beast to make Colston our #2. I agree that if Meachem does come on strong this year it will allow us to do more things with Colston. We drafted Meachem to be a #1 WR but even if he doesn't supplant Colston his speed will have to be accounted for along with Reggie's and that will leave Colston facing alot more single coverage. And we all know what happens when big number 12 is out there alone with a CB! There are maybe three corners in the league who can handle him one on one and they aren't in the NFC South.
