Haralson is coming back from a torn triceps tendon, not really a big deal. And Ryan uses his OLBs to rush the passer 80+ percent of the time. What makes that so different than what Galette, Wilson were already doing?

Hell Wilson and Galette both played OLB in college...

Agreed. Meachem is more valuable to the Saints than the Chargers.
Looking at Sproles, Chargers have a way of not utilizing talent correctly.

That said, those screaming for some LB help are correct. This team has a deficit at many positions on defense. Front office and coaches are swift to pile up wide-outs. We have ample depth at wide-out, don't think we have a deficit there.

It's a proven fact Drew Brees and our offense are 10 times more potent with even a mildly effective defense. Years our defense has been depleted or weak, Drew throws more int's and the offense is less effective because they're overcompensating for a hapless defense that cannot stop an opponent.

Rather see some defensive help, but I don't run the front office.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Would of rather have Jo Lonn Dunbar back. Meachem signing is a head scratcher.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Someone please correct me if I am wrong but we didn't push Meachem out, he found a bigger contract in FA and left.

Re: Meachem breaking news

you offensive Fanatics can say what you will cause it obvious that's all you give a crap about but if they don't start thinking about the defensive side of the ball you can kiss any hope of the playoffs good bye. say we do make the playoffs all of the other playoff teams are probably going to have some pretty good offense too that will be able to match our scoring and probably be able to stop our passing game sometime but will we be able to do the same

+1. I wasn't all that shocked that things never worked for Bobby with the bolts but they (San Diego) had unrealistic expectations for him. He was never the 'go to' guy but a very decent role player while in N O land. I wouldn't expect him to have 90+ catches a season but he still has ability to stretch the field. I too would have preferred us to address the OLB position but for what it's worth lets see how it works out with Meachem.

TRUST AND BELIEVE.
