Expect the best from New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston this season

Maybe Marques Colston simply was due for a little misfortune.

Having given him so much, maybe the football gods figured it was time to balance the scales and take away something. Something like, say, enough of Colston’s health to dilute his dominance and basically spoil his 2008 NFL season, after blessing him with enough talent and circumstance that he rose from obscurity (the No. 252 overall pick in the 2006 draft, the fourth-from-last player drafted) to stardom (168 receptions in his first two seasons, an NFL record, for 2,240 yards and 19 touchdowns).
