Has colston scored a touchdown before today? I didn't get to see last weeks game but I'm pretty sure he hasn't scored any others. Today he got his chance to show off his colors. I'm damn proud of what this team is turning into. But, and I've said this before, they need to start stepping it up in the second half. But no more complaining bout that mark up the big W on the board :P

Don't poke the hornet's nest. The fact is except for possibly the Carolina game, the Saints are continuing to evolve into we thought they were. They are beating the teams that they are supposed to beat. They are still strugging against tough physical defenses. The defensive line (which Euph complains about) still isn't getting enough pressure on the opposing QB.

That said we are back in it. After fast starts both Carolina and Tampa have hit the skids in the second quarter of the season. The AFC South is the best division in football and they are streakbusting the NFC South whenever they meet.

Next week will be a good test for our improvements:

1) Jacksonville is committed to running the ball. The Saints have improved on rush defense. Let's see if it holds.

2) The Jags have a tough punishing defense that the current Saints offense tends to struggle against. Let see how the offense holds up next week.

If we had won the Carolina game I wouldn't be as pressed about this game as I currently am. But we need it going into the a home stretch that could possibly result in the Saints being one of the hottest teams in the NFC going into the playoffs.

Yes, I don't have a stat sheet infront of me, but I think he had 2 coming into this game. I can't remember who the first one was against. Then, he had one last week against the Falcons.

Colston had a couple of TDs before yesterday's game.

All the Saints needs from all of their receivers is for them to catch the ball when it hits them in the hands. Both Colston and Henderson stepped up yesterday. Even Copper got in and snagged a TD pass.

I like the receiving by committee. It means there isn't a single receiver that a defense can expect to shut down and lock down our offense. Any of Colston, Patton, Moore, Henderson, or Copper (along with Bush and Stecker in pass patterns) can be a significant threat to defenses.

But worry wart me still is concerned about the run game. Coach Payton still needs to commit to it more. I still want to see more of PT23. Bush has lately been getting well more than 5 YPC. Even Stecker looked better in the latter stages of the game. But Coach doesn't seem to realize that the Oline and RBs can get into a rhythm carring the ball if he'd let them do it more consistently. I think it needs to be more data driven where as long as the safeties are hanging back and the the LBs are dropping back into coverage to pound the rock. Then when they step up, it's time for play action over the top.

Re: We Suck!!!!

Great game, a pleasure to watch. I think there are two school's of thought about a game like yesterday; I prefer the one that focuses on the fact that we're getting better at almost everything in every game. The other side still sees those things we need to improve (I see them too), but I love the ongoing improvement and that's what I'll take away from a game like this.

Re: We Suck!!!!

Great win. Thought the way they finished was great. I don't have anyone to complain about (including Mare, and David). Very, Very happy with the win.

JAX will be the test to see if we are "really" back. If they play like they did at SF, we should be fine.

Great game, great past three weeks to be a Saint fan.!

Re: We Suck!!!!

Colston must have had three before yesterday. They said he doubled his TD output yesterday and he had three yesterday.

Re: We Suck!!!!

I just wanted to point out...

4 straight games... 0 sacks. Go figure we won 3 out of those 4 games. Hmm...
