Agreed!!! We are finally beginning to see the talent that would dictate his draft position a few years ago. While I love Devery and all (he IS a Bayou Bengal, afterall), Meachem has shown he has big play ability without the drops...if only Colston were so consistant...

Third....I think Meach will start next year and make the pro bowl.
well that would be a good way to do it but the problem is 90% of the voters don't know that they punch the button on whos on t.v. more

I sure hope Meachem is starting next year. Henderson has had a fantastic year compared to his early years as a Saint but I feel he is used best when playing from the slot position. Henderson is the fastest WR on the team and one of the fastest players in the leauge. If you have him int the slot he gonna get matched up against a nickle back a S or a LB. A LB don't stand a chance and a lot of Safteys will struggle. A nickle back usualy plays nickle back for a reason...

While Drew Brees is the most accurate passer in the league that does not mean he throws the ball where it is easy to catch.

He throws it where he wants it to be.

Meachem has superior physical skills. This year, the mental side of the game is coming around. He will only get better.

Re: Best hands in NFL? Numbers say Meachem

After 2 years of calling Meach a bust, it is great for him to justify his draft status, and give us optimism for next year. This receiving corps should be stout for years to come, at least as long as Brees will be here. Hopefully Meach will explode in the PO like Fitzgerald did last year!
