The saftey help is always going to come when you have a top WR. If the Jets as a team can do that to AJ and Moss back to back like that, they can do it to anyone. I'm pretty sure I"m sitting Colston next week.
UNLESS the team can make them pay for blitzing and leaving holes in zone coverage or have a strong run game (which the pats were trying to establish). things that come to mind are bubble screens or quick slants, but chemistry is very important there. the run game forces a safety to hesitate on every play--stop the run at 3 yds or go double a WR and come back to help the run after he moved 10 yards.
as for NO, it's difficult to say what will happen here. colston is a huge target and has great chemistry with brees. blitzing MAY be nullified with those 4wr sets they can do well out of the shotgun. i actually dont know how often they screen though. BUT IF they can run hard on the team, again the safety will NOT be there on the outside.
but since colston is my WR2 i might as well start him
