Joe Buck must’ve said Jed Collins about 60 times in this game. Talk about a fullback that does it all. He is an excellent lead blocker, pass blocker, and can make plays in the passing game. He had four catches for 17 yards receiving and three carries for 11 yards rushing. Not impressive numbers, but in short yardage situations it makes a big difference. Payton and Brees sure know how to use every ounce of talent on their offense. He’s just another factor that defenses have to deal with when they face the Saints.
