Colston

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I reckon Colston is suffering alittle with his injury. That is nagging big time. Also I reckin that Colston will get fialled in by Brees but probably more like in the 3rd and 4th quarters. What I did notice yesterday ...

What I did notice yesterday is that Brees was having to give 2nd and 3rd reads before releasing. I wonder if Colston were sometimes the 1st, p'raps 2nd red but Chicago's coverage was just a little too good.

Re: Colston

I think it will all be ok in the end. He'll if he only get 3 opps a game, I am fine with that as long as we are winning.

Re: Colston

Shall we revisit this topic now that the media is catching on to what I saw last week?

Colston total TARGETS in lat two games - 5

Colston single game lowest targets in all other games this season - 6 Atlanta

Receptions against Chicago - 2 Receptions against the Patriots - 1

Last time Colston has less than 3 receptions in a game - Week 4 (2011) the next time going back was week 9 (2009)

TARGETS BY WEEK IN 2013
WK 1 - 6
WK 2 - 7
WK 3 - 8
WK 4 - 8
WK 5 - 2
WK 6 - 3

For what ever reason it is it seems Toon and Stills are getting Colstons targets.

Toon
WK 5 - 1
WK 6 - 4

Stills
WK 5 - 2
WK 6 - 3

Here is what I find even more curious, I carry Colston on my Fantasy team and weeks 1-5 he was listed with a P (probable).. Week 6 there was no P or anything (Full Go).

"For what ever reason it is it seems Toon and Stills are getting Colstons targets.

Toon
WK 5 - 1
WK 6 - 4

Stills
WK 5 - 2
WK 6 - 3"

I honestly think this was/is both developmental and beneficial. The younguns getting chemistry in regular season action with Brees @ CHI & NE as the season rolls, and Colston's foot heals as the season rolls. I am confident in Stills and Toon in the Dome, but the road had me concerned a bit for them.

But when you think of it, Brees on the same page with Colston / Graham / Sproles / Toon / Stills / Watson / Moore later in the season compounded with a healthier Colston is scary...even on the road.

Re: Colston

Without a shifty underneath/possession reciever like Moore, all the other receivers will have a difficult time getting open. Sproles is not fast enough to get separation from a CB and he's too small for most downfield targets. Colston and Graham are too slow, and Stills/Meachem are not explosive enough off the line to gain an advantage inside 10 yards.

We really should be looking for an understudy to Moore rather than more blazing speed that our offensive line can't protect for enough time to utilize.

Re: Colston

There have been several soundbites from the coaching staff about how they see Stills as similar to Moore. We'll see. I don't think he's as slipppery. Offense misses Lance Moore a lot I believe.

Re: Colston

Until they start using him like Moore they don't see a close enough resemblance.
