Saints 20 @ Buccaneers 26: Game Ball of the Week

What!? I gotta give out a game ball after that pathetic performance? I don't think so. 

If I had to give it somebody, I guess I'd probably award it to Marques Colston. He's recently returned from a broken collarbone in record time and finished yesterday's contest with 7 catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. Other than Jimmy Graham, he was Drew's go-to guy just like the old days. In fact, Colston was the only wide receiver with a reception for the first three quarters of the game.  

But really, I don't feel like anyone deserves to win our prestigious award this week. The offense allowed four turnovers, which all but guarantees a loss in the NFL. Meanwhile the defense appeared to forget everything they learned from their Pop Warner days. It was a total team meltdown and this bitter taste in my mouth just will not seem to go away.

But alas, it wouldn't be fair to gloss over the excellent play of one individual simply because the team didn't play well on the whole. So here's your stupid game ball, Marques Colston. I hope it tastes good.
