From last to first.....

"When it comes to the biggest surprise of the season, the popular choice would be the New Orleans Saints -- from last to first in a city that needed the effort of their beloved Saints more than any other city needed an emotional lift from its team. The biggest surprise for me is a player on the biggest surprise team in the NFL. Marques Colston was a late seventh-round pick from Hofstra. He didn't really distinguish himself in college, rarely demonstrated great hands and hardly ran great times. In fact, before picking Colston, the Saints took another receiver in the draft that was eventually cut. Colston missed a few games this season and he still leads the league in clutch catches. He's the reason the Saints traded away Donte' Stallworth. Colston has 70 receptions for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns. Twenty-four of his 28 third-down receptions have moved the chains.

Well, let's just say Colston made it a lot easier to trade Stallworth. I'm not as sure Stallworth would have been traded otherwise.
