New Guy, Talk to the Old Guy!

You'd think that not playing a single down in his rookie year would affect Saints' first-rounder Robert Meachem. Actually, it did -- for the better. The former Tennessee wide-out consulted veteran David Patten for advice this off-season. As a Saints fan, I want to see Meachem on the field in the regular season. A) To take some pressure offf Marques Colston, B) Because Patten doesn't have too many years left in the league, C) And we need to know if the team needs another wide receiver on staff to cover for #17.

I'm hoping the young one steps up in training camp and preseason and emerges as a solid number two guy. Wait, that sounded weird...
