Papz, we should never have totally rested our starters the week before the Hackers. I called that a mistake then, and I'm convinced our receivers came out cold because they were... ah, cold. However, I am as unforgiving as you on mistakes like that so thanks for reminding me (us)!

Speaking of first picks, our current Heisman winner is not knocking our socks off yet either. Although I hope he does soon. I see a Sproles clone if we can ever get him more than five yards forward of the line of scrimmage.

Cheers to all. We've got a win under our belt. I can wear my Saints cap for the next week (without being defensive about it), and we've got a challenge ahead on this Sunday. Wish it were a division or conference game, though.

Our currant heisman winner has played two games, and with the stable of RBs we have we have the luxury of bringing him around slowly. I like what I have seen from him so far. Hell back in the day rookie backs would be religated to punt and kickoff returns and hardly see the field at all during regular play ala Deuce. I think he will benifit the most from our depth at RB.

Don't see the Sproles comparison, Ingram don't have that type of speed and quickness. I would just like to see him get more consecutive carries.

Me too, once he can handle it. Until then, feed 23.

Can't really complain about anything Meachem has done so far this season. Three touchdowns in three games is pretty solid. He's catching the ball well and seems to come up with big catches. Plus, the fact that he's competing with Lance Moore, Jimmy Graham, Colston (when he's healthy), Darren Sproles, and others for catches, I'd say he's doing pretty well.
