Is Meachem ready for a breakout season?

Matt Williamson of Scouts, Inc. smells a breakout season for Robert Meachem.

Marques Colston has had five knee surgeries in five years and projects to lose targets this season. Meachem, a 2007 first-round pick, is a big-play threat that struggled with an ankle injury last year. Expected to be 100 percent for training camp, Meachem will be well worth a flier in fantasy leagues.

It's an ESPN Insider piece which I don't have access to. But here's a clip from rotoworld.

Could this finally be the year for him? It's been a long time coming.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I thought he broke-out when he swiped the ball away from that Skins LB'er and took it to the house the other way...



but to answer your question...is Meachem ready for a break-out season?

I am sure he is ready...whether or not it happens is another story.

Haahaa! I just noticed Brees totally face planted #99, I think it's Andre Carter. Is that even legal?

It's around 4 sec mark


I'm not sure about a break out season but Ingram should open up the play action enough to give Meachem and Henderson more opportunities.

Is he from Tennessee? If he is that would explain his lack of production. For whatever reason the Vols just don't seem to translate well to the NFL.jmo Anyway, I sure hope that he is ready.......it's time, and our running game should load the box and open up our receivers.

I was there! The refs did a booth review of the play. I knew that it would go the Saints way when the stadium didn't show the replay on the big screen while the refs were watching the play under the hood. Redskins fans next to me knew it too.
Before the ref came out to announce his decision, all us Saints fans were high-fiving and the "Who dat" chants started rolling. That was the turning point as the Saints were behind and made a terrific comeback.
