When I tell you that the news is quiet around the New Orleans Saints right now, it’s exactly that. After the end of training camp, we’re left with this temporary void that is missing for a month. Despite this, there’s still a couple of articles worth checking out in today’s news!
Mike Triplett | ESPN | Bucs’ Casillas likens McCown to Brees
“McCown looks like he’s played a couple of years in this game,”
“It’s a strong comparison, but he reminds me of Drew (Brees), not just the way he throws the ball, but his approach to the game. The first one in, the last one out, he’s always around. He’s very communicable, very personable. And you can tell he’s a born leader.”
Whether or not Josh McCown will be ‘that’ guy for the Buccaneers remains to be seen. However, it’s an interesting take on the quarterback by Jonathan Casillas. I have said that I believe the Bucs can be the second best team in the NFC South this year, and I wasn’t joking. The success of the Bucs will rest heavily on Josh McCown.
Cian Fahey | Bleacher Report | Is Marques Colston Still a No. 1 Receiver?
In 2013, the then-30-year-old endured the worst season of his career. He was more productive than he was in 2008, but that is because he missed five games instead of one that year. While Colston was on the field more often, it must also be noted that he was playing at less than 100 percent entering the season.
This is a very lengthy, but detailed analysis on Marques Colston. I strongly encourage you to check this out. While the answer to this particular question is a resounding ‘YES!’ from Who Dat Nation, there are valid points in this article. However, I firmly believe that if Colston’s foot is 100%, then he will return to form in 2014.
