Totally agree. Meach is a pretty humble dude, much in the mould of Colston in that manner. His choice of words doesn't look elegant on paper, but there was nothing malicious meant by it. No way. And the story of the fans bringing it back is another feel good story for a franchise that is only one season removed from being more hated than the devil incarnate.

Just another piece of media for a franchise heading in the right direction in EVERY aspect.

It shows that the fans have class. The organization has class for arranging it. And he has class for signing & giving the all their own footballs.

Fans feel good & the team looms good.

"The journey back to New Orleans"?

Oh please tell me what life crisis constitutes this "journey". Or are you referencing your voyage through mediocrity while you chased $25M?


The fans ALWAYS deserve the ball.

It's a great story, it was a natural impulse for him to throw the ball, glad we have a great fan-base that has class.

Re: Fans give touchdown ball back to Robert Meachem

There are only a few footballs worth asking a fan to give back.. Your first in the NFL, your last in the NFL, one that breaks a record, and one that wins a Super Bowl.

When you give something to someone its gone.
