The fact that meachem hasn't posted 1000 yard seasons etc still doesn't rule out of the fact he was a good player for us and helped us win a superbowl

If meachem didn't strip that ball and return for a TD, and then catch a 50 yard TD pass to send the game to overtime vs the skins in 09, we wouldn't have got homefield advantage and the path to the Super Bowl would have changed

Meachem may not have been the best in our offense, but if Morgan resembles his play in any way, he will be a good player for us

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Being a Saints fan you should know our offensive yardage was spread around so it was more about contributing as a part of a whole. We amassed over 2,000 rushing yards last season but not one of our running backs had over 1,000 yards. I shall miss Meachem as he was a valued member of our team. And pleased don't use the term 'case closed' like no-one else's opinion matters.

Hell......Sproles had over 700 yds & 7 TDs receiving last year. And Meachem was a 1st round draft pick!!! Notice.....there was no need to post Colston's stats.
So should we get rid of Lance Moore? His stats are getting worse so he must be in decline.

One play does not make a season fellas.

Meachem was good, not great. IMO he and Devery are interchangeable and Henderson is cheaper, that's why he's still here.

Besides, Meachem never struck me as the sharpest tool in the shed.

I have not problem having an undrafted free agent playing up to a former #1 draft pick's level. Seems like a win there.

That was my thought too. Give me a Meachem in his 3rd year after he finally starts contributing.

Meachem was alright.....it just took him longer than we hoped to grow into the spot.

"A young Robert Meachem" ... what is he, 27? He's a WR, not a rock star. Odds are he'll be around a few more years.
