Of course, when the schedule was drawn up, this game looked like an easy win for the Steelers. The Saints, coming off a 3-13 record last season, were in full-blown rebuilding mode with a new coaching staff, a new quarterback, an entirely new offensive line (and how often does that happen?), an entirely new linebacking corps, and one extremely talented rookie poised to make a big impact.
No, not Reggie Bush. Well, besides him.
The rookie making the biggest impact for the Saints -- and maybe in the NFL -- is wide receiver Marques Colston. Drafted in the seventh round out of Hofstra, Colston so far has contributed seven touchdowns (!) and 44 catches for 700 yards ... the exact same number of total yards racked up by Reggie Bush. Colston has been impressive, to say the least. He's big (6'4", 230), fast and rangy. And he plays with a poise that belies his inexperience.
Question: Didn't the Steelers notice this guy when they were viewing Hosfstra game film while scouting tackle Willie Colon, whom they drafted in the fourth round? I mean, what if? Colston sure would look good in Black 'n Gold. What?! Those are the Saints' colors, too? Damn. I hate being colorblind.

Another example of democracy in action. Now, if we could only get it to work as well in
