Mixed bag. Some want him back still.

I wasn't too excited that he was leaving the Saints but no way was he worth what the Chargers gave him. That said, The Saints are solid at WR now. There's not one WR I would give up to bring Meachem back.

I think this shows just how much confidence the Saints organisation has in Mickey Loomis, Sean Payton and Drew Brees. They knew they could find a gem, who would likely be cheaper and more durable and would fit right in.

As of right now, I cannot see anyone who wouldn't want Stills, Toon, Morgan and Tanner over Meachem, and I mean comparative to what Meachem offered when he left us.

Great guy, served us well (maybe not so much as a 1st round pick but generally) and I am disappointed to see his career possibly end like this. Unfortunately, just not good enough.

True... Saints didn't use him the way the Chargers planned to. He is NOT Vincent Jackson. Stupid AJ Smith brought him in to fill Jackson's shoes. That was not going to happen.

Then there is the other problem... going from Payton to Norv. That's going to decrease anybody's career.

He might have been good if used correctly and for half the money.

Meachem has his time and his place..... So did Henderson. They both has me standing and yelling at my TV because of amazing catches. The bitter truth about the NFL is that you've got the speedsters like them and the amazing route runners and the power houses.... It seems the speedsters usually fade out first as the slightest loss in speed takes away any advantage they had.

All we ca do is wait and see if Stills can do as hoped... If he can, holy crap can you imagine Stills and Morgan scorching up both hashes next year?

Last season he just dropped too many passes that shouldn't have been dropped.

That can happen when your having to run at 115% instead of 100% and bit focused.


Then again..... Would you say that Rivers is an accurate passer?

Yes. There is a reason that after two bad season, Chargers fans aren't calling for his head. Had Brees stayed here, he would have had to deal with the same circus created by AJ and Norv and still would not have a ring today.

If you don't fix the offensive line and establish a running game, it doesn't matter who your quarterback is.
