Free Agency 2012: The Deal Grader! +1.0: That move could work out very nicely!Robert Meachem to SD: Limited because of the nature of the Saints offense, Meachem never really had a chance to be a number one guy in New Orleans. Makes up, to a degree, for the loss of Vincent Jackson.+0.5: Common sense shines throughVincent Jackson to TB: Jackson may be walking a disciplinary tight rope, but is one of the leagues most dominant deep threats. He automatically gives Josh Freeman the consistent down field target heís needed to raise his game.
I read through the article and my first thought was damn the national media really dislikes this organization.....then I realized who wrote this article. Has anyone even heard of this guy. Typical comments from some nerd who never had the talent to play the game (much like Charlie) yet all of a sudden is an expert at judging talent. Listening to these so called experts makes me want to bang my head against the wall. Although playing the game doesn't make me an expert I have enough sense to see the talent we just landed and the potential to be great. Beside the fact the way the contracts are structured were safe n the future.
There's an organizational bias in these things that really shines through even when the pro's are writing, but even more apparent when some "nobody" is writing them. Like someone else said, if most other teams made these moves they would be considered great moves (unless it was the skins).
