Found October 18, 2013 on Gridiron Experts:
Marques Colston has been a huge disappointment thus far. While the Saints offense has looked a little more “normal” than what we have come to expect from them, Colston’s production hasn’t even been close to resembling normal.

New Orleans Saints: Where is Marques Colston?

The New Orleans Saints offense has been one of the most prolific and consistent unit in the NFL since Drew Brees and Sean Payton took over in 2006. There have been many players who have come and gone which isn’t unusual in today’s NFL with free agency. However, other than Brees and Payton, the one constant has been Marques Colston.

DC Rob Ryan turns chopped liver into steak: 'I think we've done a good job with the current players of putting them in certain situations'

Saints Nation: The Saints Will Face Very Tough Defensive Teams From Here on Out

After watching six games this season, I feel really good about the defense and special teams. It turns out offense has been less impressive, mostly due to poor play by the offensive line and the wide receivers. If you asked me right now who the Saints match up best with, it would be a poor defensive team. That's because Brees can still light teams up and the Saints have proven...
