Meachem: “In my Heart, I Know I’ll Play”

Posted by Ricky Henne on November 5, 2012 – 2:50 PM

Robert Meachem missed Thursday night’s game with a hamstring injury suffered during Tuesday’s practice.  I spoke with the speedy wide receiver earlier this afternoon about his prognosis for playing this week in Tampa Bay.  This is what he had to say.

“I’m getting better each and every day.  It’s just one of those things.  It’s the NFL.  I’ll have to see how it feels Wednesday.  But I don’t have a choice but to get better.  It will get better. I’m not going to guess and say I think I’m going to play.  In my heart, I know I’m going to play.  I’ll be ready. I just need my body to respond to what my heart is saying.”

    Robert, going into this season, I was so excited to see what you can do for us but I’ve been extremely disappointed with the production. I still see the potential you have with us but I don’t know what the problem is. The chemistry with Rivers or the compatibility with Norv’s scheme, it is baffling. I really hope whatever the problem is wanes because I am still a believer. Maybe things come in time but I was hoping for more at this point,

    @Braxton 29 Couldn’t agree with you more. Well said.

    I don’t know what the problem is, Meachum is a quality receiver, hope he gets it together soon. We could make a playoff run if we get these guys to play up to their potential.

    Persevere buddy, hopefully Rivers is out of his rut and ready to start hitting you in stride and in the numbers instead of underthrowing and being late and behind

    Stay hungry

    forget meachem! Get Vincent Brown healthy, hes a quality receiver!

    I’ll tell you the problem…Rivers no longer has the arm or deep ball to reach Robert Meachem! Watch video footage people and see how many times the ball was under thrown to Meachem… I actually feel bad for Meachem!

    Meachem is a top quality player, as well as Brown, newcomer Alexander, and without debate Floyd. I would like to see all of them get/stay healthy and build with Rivers (also a high quality player) to be the team we all know we can be. Our DEF is about to show D. Martin what is what… Spikes, Butler, Johnson, Phillips, even Weddle and Bigby! All our D is beast. We just gotta make the right calls and play hard

    We dont have TOP quality receivers…we have a bunch of average WR’s at best. Even when Meachem was playing, he hasnt held his own jock. Royal pretty much gave up on us on Monday Nite Football….Floyd has been solid. Until we bring in someone that can design better plays on offense, we arent going to do much in this league…..We run the same boring plays…run on first and second, throw on third…..We dont utelize our players the way they should be. Why not give Plax a chance? T.O? We have nothing to lose. We are pretty much done this year…our schedule is against us. and the way we are playing, we will be lucky if we finish 8-8…..Lose to tampa, Lose to the broncos, lose to the Steelers, and lose to the Jets. until next year….

    Meacham I believe he has the potential to do well as a slot receiver. I think they need to get rid of Eddie Royal and Keep Floyd.Alexander,Meacham and Tutu. Tutu and Floyd are a threat opening the feild for Slants and drag routes for Meacham and Alexander.

    It’s funny when people start questioning Rivers’ armstrength as being the reason that none of the Chargers’ receivers, except Floyd, seem to be producing. If I remember right, Rivers did a fine job against the Brownies of putting the ball right between the “1″ and the “2″ on Meachems’ jersey late in the game that would have given the Chargers a much-needed touchdown, except that Meachem forgot to catch it and the Chargers lose 7-6. If he catches that ball and finishes walking into the endzone, the Chargers are 5-3 and tied with Denver for first in the division. Instead, the Chargers are looking from behind again after choking up three games in a row – each that they should have won – and people now questioning Rivers’ arm strength or saying something else is wrong with him instead of pointing out all of the drops that the receivers “make” or the horrible protection he gets from his offensive line. Rivers is there every single offensive play, and it seems that there is no one else capable of helping him succeed. These over-paid receivers need to step-up and do their jobs when called upon. Or better yet, when the Chargers find themselves with a dominating receiver like Vincent Jackson, maybe they should pay a litle extra to keep him around…

    HEY MEACH DONT LISTEN TO THE KOOK WHO WROTE FIRST!
    We understand the position you where brought in here with! i STILL have ALOT of faith in what you can bring to our Chargers team and all you need is more time to aclimate!

    MEACH IS FINE AND WILL ONLY GET BETTER!

    I have to say that I agree with Billy. I have been watching the games and except for one, I can’t blame Rivers for the losses. The O-line is like a department store door that opens automatically when any pair of feet touch the ground in front of it. How many times do we have to watch another wide receiver drop a ball because it hit him right in the hands?Frankly Matthews has not lived up to expectations. The last, of several, fumbles he lost cost the Chargers the game. It’s been a while since that game but the way I remember it, the Chargers could have kicked a field goal from where they lost the ball. That would have won it. If you want to start handing out blame for the current state of the team, start at AJ’s door.

    I was glad when Meach got here, but don’t tell me he needs more time to aclimate, this is week 10, if you haven’t learned your job yet (run,catch,run more) then you haven’t earned your multi- million $ signing bonus, let alone whatever your portion of the $176,000 a week you and Royal get paid. I like ya Meach, but either earn your money or sit and let Tutu and Alexander show you how to get open and catch the ball. GO BOLTZ!!!

    I was really excited when I had heard Meachem was picked up the Chargers, but up to now I haven’t been impressed. He doesn’t make an attempt to even try and catch any of Rivers passes at all! I don’t see him coming back or diving for any he just expects the ball to fall into his hands and when it does he drops it. I say give the others a chance.GO CHARGERS!!!!

    I feel if the Chargers would fix the O line they would immediately see an improvement in the passing game, running game, and less interceptions. Looking at ESPN it shows Rivers as the 9th most sacked quarterback while the Manning brothers are both near the bottom in terms of being sacked. Rivers has a quick release throw for short/medium passes but he still needs more time from better protection so he doesn’t have to hurry so many throws. I know I said this before on the Charger site but gee Clary #66 can you not do your usual imitation of a Don Quixote windmill this next game against the pass rushers?

    Chargers got stuck with Buster instead of Bowe from the draft. NO sold us the same thing, Meachum instead of Colston. Do not go to Louisiana for any for players.

    Are you guys kidding me right now? disappointed, thats what you say to youre team? i say until you can put on some gear on and suit up n try out for the team then id sit back and shutup and be a fan of your team, its people like you that make them less motivated, if you really think that way then just dont even post anything at all, give your team faith……. shit, and to any chargers that are paying attention to these comments then laugh at this, play with your heart, dont let these (people) get in your head, theres a reason why all of you are on this team and thats because you guys can play, they cant, i got faith in every single one of you out there on the field
