The TD bombs over the middle!!! Come on, football is ENTERTAINMENT, people. Screw the stats, I am still gonna be watching that Redskins clip on Youtube once or twice a year, when I am old and senile and in the nursing home!

You are partially correct.

Meachem made two, (2), outstanding plays in that game against Washingon in that game; the interception-strip-return for a TD and a TD reception that I believe sent the game into OT.

No one said Meachem was going to make people forget Jerry Rice, but, IMO, Meachem doesn't get the credit he deserves from some Saints fans.

1st off, I wasn't bashing Meachem. He was a Saint!!! He was a decent ball player.....but that's it. He NEVER lived up to his 1st round expectations.....no matter how you want to paint the picture. As someone mentioned before, Devery has been every bit as good. He did make some great plays. He also had some downright pitiful drops. For every....."enough said" video of Meachem making a play, there was one where he wasn't making a play. Bottom line is.....like I said.....I hope that both of the new guys are better than he was.

I'm with Gandhi; that quote from Vitt was disturbing...

I remember a Robert Meachem, drafted in the first round out of Tennessee - D'oh - :homer: that was not even in shape!

Hopefully Morgan is better than that...

And there is a reason why Vitt is only where he is and no more...

I am pretty certain that what Vitt mean was that he reminds him of Meacheam, only younger and if he is anywhere close o the player meachem developed into then I'm a happy camper.

Depends on what that play is.

I dare say Porters interception in SB 44 of manning made a season... he could have been burnt all season like Mike mckenzie and that interception would have made him a favorite in anyone's book.

That being said... Meachem's hands were not always soft, and there is a reason he was known by some as Meat-Chump.
