Thumbs up Vitt: "We think we've got a young Robert Meachem"

Saints interim coach Joe Vitt says the team has internally compared second-year WR Joseph Morgan to outgoing deep threat Robert Meachem.

"We think we've got a young Robert Meachem," Vitt said. Morgan, "stashed" on I.R. as a rookie following a minor knee scope, is healthy and making a case for a roster spot after an impressive 2011 summer. Last preseason, Morgan caught a 56-yard touchdown bomb from Chase Daniel and also returned a punt for a touchdown. He's worth monitoring for deep-league purposes.

"A young Robert Meachem" does not impress me. Hopefully, Morgan & Toon will both be better.

That is why you are where you are and Vitt is where he is.

Unless Vitt says that Brees is a shorter version of Ryan Leaf, I trust his player evaluations.

I don't know; Meachem shown glimpses of greatness... If Morgan is showing anything relative to those glimpses I'd be happy with it

Morgan was tearing it up last preseason, almost enough for the saints to take Courtney Roby off the team. Seems like to me Morgan, Toon will get spots and Arrington will be the odd man out.......... Again!!!!

How many 1,000 yds seasons did Meachem have? How many double digit TD seasons did Meachem have? How many drops did Meachem have? Case closed. Like I said......I hope both of them are better.

You should by now that no WR except Colston has 1000yds seasons with the Saints, the offence just isn't built to operate like that.

Funny......Lance Moore had seasons of 928 yds w/ 10 TDS, 763 w/ 8 TDS, & 627 w/ 8 TDS. Jimmy Graham, though a TE, is coming off of a 1310 yds/11 TD season. Meachem's best.........722 yds. w/ 9TDS. 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.
