Saints Bring Back Meachem, Fortt to IR

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; good to see Meech back hopefully we don't need him much as Stills, Cooks and Morgan are blowing the top off things he always seems to get one deep ball a game and be invisible the rest of the time...

Bringing Meach back makes sense...

With Colston the only other healthy receiver with any real experience...

I agree, but on a "glass half full" note, it must mean that we expect Stills and Lorig back before week 6.

I truly haven't seen anything spectacular from him this far... at least nothing that SP couldn't coax out of some other low-round/UDFA prospect.
I don't think it's Tulane but the kid looked awesome and had field presence in the first preseason game. That said, he didn't show much after that, only a few sparks.

Luke McCown earned his spot at second string. I honestly don't care who is second string or starts, all I want to do is win!

I was pulling for Griffin but he was clearly outplayed by McCown in the last two preseason games.

That being said McCown looked like a mess in the first two games.

We have to hope Drew stays healthy.

Smart. Nobody was going to pick him up for a lot of reasons. He was pigeon holed in our offense. Nowhere else to go and it saved some coin for other diabolical moves.

He looked great in the 2nd game.

You're right he did pretty good in the second game, I guess I was just remembering how much better Griffin looked.

Griffin looked like the smooth, calm starter and McCowen looked stiff and slow, like a back up.
