Saints bye week: what we have learned part 1 of 2

We have reached the end of the bye week, and now like our team we need to focus not on the past, but on what can be done for the future. Still the key to progress is usually to look back and see how you got where you are; the Saints are a team that could (should?) be 4-1, has looked 1-4, and sits at 2-3. We came into the season with high expectations and the hopes of a second SB...

Saints make Junior Galette a very rich man and bring back Robert Meachem

I step away from my computer and twitter for two hours and news blows up about the Saints. The first is that they will indeed carry 6 receivers on the roster after all. After signing Shayne Graham and releasing Ryan Griffin, the Saints designated rookie Khairi Fortt for IR with return and used the open roster spot to bring back Robert Meachem. That makes me wonder if Griffin and...

Saints drop preseason finale 22-13 to Ravens

The Saints played very few key players, but that didn’t stop Robert Meachem, Champ Bailey and Parys Haralson from all getting banged up. As far as I could tell it doesn’t seem like it will jeopardize their ability to play in Atlanta, as Haralson and Meachem both returned, and Bailey seemed to dislocate a finger. Comically the Saints had one penalty in this game, it was by far...

Brandin Cooks Bound for Superstardom with Saints

From 2006 until 2013, the Saints’ wide receiver corps underwent very little change. Led annually by Marques Colston, the Saints also featured—in no determinable pecking order—Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, and Robert Meachem. Only a quarterback of Drew Brees’ caliber could enjoy the immense success he has with such a lackluster rabble of wideouts. Of course, […] The post...

Wow. This was one hell of a catch. When I saw it, I didn’t think at first that it took so many different routes before it finally ended up in the hands of Saints WR Robert Meachem. Brees threw the ball to Meachem, where it bounced off of his chest, out of his hands into the air before bouncing off a defender, which bounced the ball back in the air, off of Meachem’s helmet and...
