It wasn't uncommon for Meachem to be targeted a total of 10 times in a month, then have 10 or 13 passes thrown his way in a game. That was the beauty of the Saints' prolific offense, led by former Chargers quarterback Drew Brees. Defenses were often on their heels because New Orleans could attack from so many different angles.
San Diego is similarly built. At tight end, Antonio Gates looks rejunvenated, rookie Ladarius Green looks like a bigger wideout and veteran newcomer Dante Rosario has opened eyes during workouts. At receiver, Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown return and veteran additions Eddie Royal and Roscoe Parrish could give them a quick, shifty slot presence that has been absent in recent years.
