Saints News 6/9/13: Marques Colston Weekend Continues

New, comments

Saints WR Marques Colston was ranked #20 among all NFL wide receivers, along with the "not quite true No.1s", in an NFL.com story this week. I don't have a problem with this designation, but I predict many in CSC Nation will take serious umbrage with this. Plus, Wang live-tweets the Game of Thrones injury report at the final media availability prior to tonight's season finale.

Here's a fumble from a Top 20 WR in the NFL.
