Oh yeah I agree with you there, Cooks should have had that and Brees made that throw perfectly.
However there were plenty of other throws that completely sailed on him, I remember one where Brees escaped the pocket and rolled to his right with Cooks completely uncovered and Brees overshot him by a mile.

It wasn't perfect but a win is a win and I'm happy for that considering how the season started.
Hopefully this has made the players realise that they can't sit back with a 20 point lead and the entire second half to play.

I'd like to see that aswell. He has lots of speed and athleticism, but he needs to make the tough catches, too. Something I don't see a lot from him.

He is like small version of Jimmy Graham. If throw isn't perfect he won't make that extra effort. It's frustrating because he has all the talent in the world.

Colston will have his moments but with them will become blunders. And with the oline the way it is, Brees cannot afford to be relying too much on Colston. It appears Brees is gonna throw to who he likes unless Payton intervenes.
Drew has always thrown to "who he likes".

They all count. He has dropped just as many of those as he has caught in recent years ... Hard to call it classic Colston. Something wrong with pointing out the obvious?

This team has no where to go but up. You can see improvements on both sides of the ball. I don't know where this team will be at the end of the year, whether playoffs are a possibility or not... but the future isn't bad.

Burn that's true, all catches count just as all money counts...

But some bills are worth more than others and Colston was money at the end of the game...

He did make the catch at the end, THIS TIME. And that's good, no argument there. But he dropped about three passes on the final drive against Carolina, and hasn't been called on in late game situations much before or since then because of his inability to catch with anything close to consistency.

That was my point in an earlier post, that it's sad when the guy finally makes one play and he's hailed for his late game heroics, and "wow what a warrior" type of thing. If it were just about anyone else people wouldn't say much other than "hey, nice catch". But with Colston it stands out because we're used to him dropping it now.
