Meachem Gets an Eduction in HOF Game


While most of the Saints are walking away not happy with themselves after a lackluster showing the Sunday’s Hall of Fame game, one player is really still feeling it today.  That player is first round draft choice Robert Meachem, who took what he called “the hardest hit of my life,” in the 4th quarter of the 20-7 loss.  Meachem was hit by Steelers corner William Gay as he attempted to make a catch.  He lost the ball in the mixup, and then went on to drop a few more passes before the night was all said and done.

“I have a lot of work to do,” said Meachem,. “Second pass, I should have caught it. Third pass, too. I was always taught that any time you get your hands on the ball, you catch it, no matter what. I have to adjust quickly, get back to work.”  It was a tough night all the way around for the Saints, who seemed to be manhandled rather easily by a Steelers defense that played hard under first year head coach Mike Tomlin in his first game.  How did the coach think Meachem played?   “I have to look at the tape, but there wasn’t a whole lot of good going on tonight.”
