While the Eagles look for a wide receiver to replace Jeremy Maclin, the Soul have found one. Marques Colston, the New Orleans Saints' all-time leader in four receiving categories, won't be playing for the Soul anytime soon. Instead, the 10-year veteran, who joined the Soul as an ownership partner last fall, will be closely involved with the team. "With me being on the back end of my career, I know they are going to show me the door sooner rather than later," Colston, a seventh-round draft pick out of Hofstra, said of the Saints.

HIS NAME is his outlook. "All things are possible through God's greatness" is not just the English translation to Ifeanyi Momah's Nigerian first name. It is the philosophy that has sustained him through the last 21 months of his life. By now, many of us have heard his story. Bounced between defensive end and receiver at Boston College, his knee torn up amid what appeared to be a breakout game against Northwestern at the start of the 2011 season, his appeal to play a sixth season denied by the NCAA.

With the playoffs on the line, the 'Aints made their return. New Orleans all but eliminated itself from playoff contention by falling apart physically and mentally - losing key players to injuries and drawing penalties in crucial situations. "That was a tough loss for us," coach Sean Payton said after the Saints' 38-23 loss to the Eagles. "You have to credit Philadelphia and Andy Reid and his staff. There wasn't any quit in the team that we played. " The Saints lost three players to injuries in the game, the most notable being cornerback Mike McKenzie, who sprained a knee on the third play from scrimmage, and wide receiver Marques Colston, who suffered a chest contusion.

NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees and the surging New Orleans Saints made everything look easy against the slumping Giants. Brees passed for 363 yards and four touchdowns and ran for another score as New Orleans rolled to a 49-24 victory last night, extending New York's losing skid to three games. Tight end Jimmy Graham had five catches for 84 yards, including touchdowns of 5 and 29 yards. Brees' two other scoring strikes went to Lance Moore, who had five catches for 54 yards.

NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees completed 31 of 35 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns, and the Saints set a franchise record for points and victory margin in a 62-7 demolition of the hapless Indianapolis Colts last night. For the first time as a head coach, Sean Payton spent the game up in the coaches' booth, where he could sit comfortably with his broken left leg propped up. He called the plays from there and he had to like what he saw from his new vantage point. Brees had two TD passes to Marques Colston and one to Darren Sproles in the first quarter.

It's the time of year when fantasy enthusiasts obsess over draft order and which players will be available when the time comes to make that fateful first-round pick. Jamaal or Shady? Peyton or Brees? Bud or Miller? But as important as your initial pick can be, it pales in comparison to the handful of selections you'll make - or miss - several rounds later. Who are this year's hidden gems? Let's take a look at my sleeper picks, broken down by position. (Note: ADP, or "average draft position," indicates where the player is typically being selected within his position.

ON SUNDAY, SAINTS quarterback Drew Brees will likely break Johnny Unitas' record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass. And that's fine with Joe Unitas, the son of the late NFL Hall of Fame quarterback. Brees tied the 47-game record with a 20-yard strike to Marques Colston in the first quarter of a loss to the Packers last weekend. He can break the mark on Sunday night against the visiting Chargers, the team the 12-year veteran began his career with. In a letter to Brees that the Saints posted on their Facebook page, Joe Unitas wrote: "I wanted to take a minute to congratulate you on tying my father's record . . . I'm a big fan of yours, and wish you the best Sunday night against San Diego . . . When I look back on my father's life I remember a man who was much bigger than the game of football.

NEW ORLEANS - Colin Kaepernick ran for one score that he made look easy and threw for a touchdown in another performance that validated coach Jim Harbaugh's decision to start him. The San Francisco defense added its share of big plays and the 49ers ended the New Orleans Saints' three-game winning streak, 31-21, on Sunday. Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner each returned interceptions for touchdowns and the 49ers sacked Brees five times. Kaepernick was solid in his second career start while Alex Smith, deemed healthy enough to suit up after recovering from a concussion, watched from the sideline.

WITH ALL the negative news surrounding Atlantic City and the casinos shutting their doors, the Soul and majority owner Ron Jaworski hope to bring some positivity to the Jersey Shore. It's not yet been finalized, but the Daily News has learned that a deal is in the works for the Soul to play two games at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall this upcoming season. The first game would be in March - and televised nationally on ESPN - while the other would be at a later date. The Soul is in negotiations with the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority on the potential deal.

Once upon a time, there was an NFL team with a wide receiver named Dont? Stallworth. That team thought Stallworth was a good player but traded him anyway. The New Orleans Saints have no regrets about what they did. "That wasn't anything negative about Dont?," Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said yesterday at the Indianapolis Convention Center during the first day of the NFL Scouting Combine. "That wasn't why we made that move. We just had a desperate need at linebacker.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 10 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Cam Newton, QB, Panthers at Eagles. In a week when three star QBs are idle, Newton offers hope. Though he hasn't had a TD strike since Week 7, he ran one in last week and he'll be facing a very hospitable Philly defense. Newton is hard to trust, but he always manages to rebound. Why not under the Monday night lights? Justin Forsett, RB, Ravens vs. Titans. Forsett leads Baltimore's two- or three-headed (depending on the whims of his coaches)

Just because few rookie wide receivers have come into the NFL in their first seasons and dominated doesn't mean that Jordan Matthews will not. But some of the reports that have trickled out of Eagles practices about Matthews' feats have been downright hyperbolic when evidence contrary to his making a first-year splash is so overwhelming. The Eagles don't need Matthews to put up those kinds of numbers even without DeSean Jackson. Their offensive personnel are designed so that they can play any type of game with balance at the three skill positions of receiver, running back and tight end. They are high on Matthews, though, both in public and private.

ONE OF THE themes to this season is the underperforming running back. Like loud ties and bad breath, they are impossible to hide. LeSean McCoy, admirably taking responsibility even though his offensive line can't open a can of tuna right now, is on the list. But he's certainly not alone. Let's look at the top consensus running backs entering the season and how they've fared halfway through. Adrian Peterson, Vikings: The tragedy he has endured with the murder of his son makes criticizing his inconsistent fantasy production heartless.
