Very good.

Colston strolled calmly from the end zone after his first NFL touchdown. His veteran quarterback was the one who looked like the excitable rookie, leaping up to smack the 6-foot-4 receiver on the helmet and shoulder pads.
---I laughed when I saw that. it is another one of those little things about Brees that is still so refreshing to see.

Steal of the NFL draft? How about Marques Colston?

Steal of the NFL draft? How about Marques Colston?
By BRETT MARTEL, AP Sports Writer September 13, 2006

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Marques Colston's rise from little known Division I-AA prospect to one of Drew Brees' go-to receivers has been so sudden, even his coach couldn't see it coming.

"If we loved him we would have drafted him in the third round or the fourth round, so we liked him," new Saints coach Sean Payton said of the seventh-rounder out of Division I-AA Hofstra. Payton's eyes were smiling as if he'd just been dealt 21 at a blackjack table.

"We thought he had all those tools that are necessary and yet there's that uncertainty as to all the other things. So I'm excited about a young player."

Colston made four clutch catches in the Saints' season-opening victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. All came on third downs -- three for first downs, the other for New Orleans' only touchdown.

Nope. Did that on draft day when we snagged him with a 7th round pick.

Seriously, what we saw last weekend was just a small glimpse of this guy's abilities. He will be a big time NFL receiver. Size, speed, strength, & clutch catching? I look for him to break 1,000 yards his rookie season w/ at least 7 TD's. Laugh if you want......he's going to be a star!

I was excited just to see how big he was on draft day. But knew nothing about him.
