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.

BEST OF MAXIM
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.
Colston, a model of consistency, has vanished...
A year ago the New Orleans Saints defense was well on their way to becoming the worst defense in NFL history. A year later a 'leopard can change its spots,' so the saying goes. Ranked 17th in the NFL in total defense, the unit has become an asset for the team known for its potent offense. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is one of the reason for the turnaround as the brash...
Last week: 3 (+0)
The Saints are no longer undefeated, but they lost in a game that was literally as close as could be and on to the road to another top-5 team. They should still finish with 12 or 13 wins and be this year’s team to goes from out of the playoffs to a first round bye. Because of the nature of the two team’s home field advantage, whether or not they...
Do you remember when there was this whole narrative about the Saints being awful after a bye week under Sean Payton? It used to be a major issue before things got turned around. Here is how the Saints have done in the Sean Payton era coming off a bye:
2006- Lost at home to Ravens 22-35
2007- Lost at home to Panthers 13-16
2008- Lost on the road to Falcons 20-34
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...
I don't do this often but a few of you were interested in getting my take on some questions you had about the team so I was happy to oblige below. This was fun, we will definitely do it again. I greatly appreciate the participation.

The New Orleans Saints are in their bye week with a 5 and 1. They lead the NFC South Division by (3) games over the Panthers, (4) games over the Falcons and (5) games over the winless Buccaneers. The Saints are in the driver's seat and barring a catastrophic meltdown, should take the division crown. The return of head coach, Sean Payton, who was banned last year from...
