After Further Review: Fazende's Friday 4-point stance

If it feels like there are a lot of Louisiana players in the NFL, that's because there are. Is Keenan Lewis getting shutdown corner treatment? Is Kenny Vaccaro back on track? And what was the most overrated storyline to come from Saints camp this week?

It's all in this week's four-point stance:

1.)  Battling for the Boot

The NFL released a new study this week that said Louisiana had the highest number of NFL players per capita, with 19 coming from New Orleans. Hahnville High School in Luling was the most represented Louisiana high school with four players. The Saints don't have any Hahnville Tigers on their roster but Hahnville plays Landry-Walker on Friday, the alma mater of Keenan Lewis. Lewis said he is not attending the game.

2.)  Lonely Lewis?

Speaking of Lewis, as expected, it's been a fairly quiet start to the season for him, at least in the passing game. Teams have clearly elected to stay away from him. He's only been targeted five times so far. He's given up a touchdown and has one pass break-up.

3.)  Vaccaro Rebounds

Safety Kenny Vaccaro shook off his worst game as a pro two weeks ago with a solid performance against the Browns. He was heavily involved in blitzes and finished the game with seven tackles and zero misses.

4.)  No Colston Catastrophe

The most overrated, overblown storyline of the week goes Marques Colston's goes egg against Cleveland. I've watched the tape. Simply put, Colston didn't have any catches because he was well covered. Jimmy Graham was open often and they were running the ball effectively. That's it. No conspiracies, no punishment. It wouldn't surprise me at all if #12 has a big game on Sunday.
