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.

Re: Lets talk about Colston

When the game was on the line, Marques Colston came through for us today.

Is he in decline, at his age, health?!? Of course he is and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out...

If anything, while Colston is still on the field, Brees has got to get Colston the ball more - so he doesn't fall asleep!!!

Drew may be having 'Jimmy Withdrawals' and is just going to have to shake off any bad lackadaisical effort habits in his read progressions he had when Graham was still a Saint...

Only good things happen when Colston is making catches and securing intermediate gains...

Re: Lets talk about Colston

Brees didn't exactly light the game up himself

Sure Colston should have tried to locate the ball and he's been having a tough season so far, but Brees was the one who just lofted a gift wrapped Interception right to the colts defender.

Brees also missed quite a lot of open throws, he had cooks running free quite a few times and the ball completely sailed.

Overall decent win, lets get back to .500 next week.

Yeah he was definitely off. There was a nice ball about 35 yards down the field in the first half where Brees made a throw over a couple of defenders, to Cooks, and it went off his finger tips when he made no effort to dive. That kind of thing isn't on Brees, but as you said he missed Cooks several times, and I just thought he settled on way too many underneath throws in the second half.

The protection broke down at times, but Drew just looked like he had made up his mind he was just gonna check it down on most of those plays. The other problem is we completely stopped run blocking down the stretch.

As for Colston... I can't say anything different about him than I've been saying for a couple years. The one catch was nice, but when we're in the position of patting a guy on the back as if he's done some heroic thing, after one whole catch, that tells you everything. I'm glad he made the catch, but he remains a liability.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Lets talk about Colston

Maybe more targets help. Cooks needs to get off the end, he is no wideout!! Where was Snead today? And Watson?

Re: Lets talk about Colston

And I also saw him hit Cooks deep on the run that bounced out of Cooks hands..... let's be fair.

Re: Lets talk about Colston

we dont have the targets we used to. Brees still has to gel with these new receivers. Cooks draws a lot of coverage so alot of times that is out and other than Colston nobody else was as sure of a thing as we used to have.
Our receivers were never great. The thing about our receivers were they were all talented all around but all excelled in different ways to be used. You had Devery as the burner, Lance as possetion, Colston the tall one, Shockey or Graham to get the tough ones. Our receivers now dont compliment each other as well as in the past.
It will get worked out eventually. Probably not this year though.

You saw the same one I was talking about. That was a weak effort by Cooks on that one.
