Exclamation Quiet Colston lets clutch catches speak for him

Marques Colston usually sits next to Drew Brees on the New Orleans Saints' charter plane, which is ideal for a quarterback who likes using that time to study the game plan or take a nap.

Colston isn't big on small talk. More often, the receiver puts on a pair of earphones and keeps to himself, sometimes dozing off.

Brees describes Colston as an ''old soul.''

''He's 28 but behaves like he's 58,'' Brees said, describing the silence between them as comfortable because they understand each other.

That shows in the way they connect on the field.

Colston and Brees have played together for six seasons, and Colston has had more than 1,000 yards receiving in five, coming up short only when he missed five games with a hand injury in 2008.

When 49ers defensive backs reviewed Saints film in advance of this Saturday's meeting in a second-round playoff game in San Francisco, they saw a lot of the 6-foot-4 Colston, who had seven catches for 120 yards in New Orleans' first-round victory over Detroit last weekend.

Niners cornerback Carlos Rogers emphasized that Colston is ''real big and tall,'' and ''can make all types of catches.''

This season, Colston missed two games with a broken collarbone and finished third on the club in catches with 80, second in yards with 1,143 and tied for second in touchdown catches with eight.

Colston averaged 81.6 yards receiving in his 14 games. Had he maintained that for all 16, he would have posted 1,306 yards, four fewer than tight end Jimmy Graham, who led the Saints and ranked seventh in the NFL.

Colston has been amazing this season. And, like many players on this team, he lets his accomplishments speak for themselves. I'm so proud of this team.
