Robert Meachem was terrible last year and he knows that he sucked last year. At least he knows:

“What did you do last year?” Meachem said in an interview with Mike Costa and Judson Richards on XTRA Sports 1360 in San Diego. “To yourself, you’ve got to totally be honest with yourself and look yourself in the mirror. You sucked last year. So now what are you going to do? Are you going to be the same guy as last year or are you going to be a new guy?”

Bigger question: what is he going to do to make things right? How is he going to get things going on the right track? His wife had the answer for him:

“‘Stop feeling sorry for yourself,’” Meachem relayed. “She just put it like that. She was honest. She was just saying ‘stop feeling sorry for yourself and go play your ball. Go do what you do. Go have fun and enjoy the game again.’”

With the injury to Danario Alexander, Meachem will have a better opportunity to get on the field. Does anyone think that Meachem can make an impact this season though?

This offense seems to be a better fit for him and he is the only deep threat on the roster, but he currently seems to be a product of a system in New Orleans.

He is still stuck down deep on the depth chart. He is currently battling with the rookie Keenan Allen for playing time. I would give the edge to Allen in that battle.

Meachem is best use in spurts. He shouldn’t be a starter. We already saw tge disaster that can be to the offense.
