I agree Meach and Devery can still run past the best of'em and Colston is a beast in possession; all are good fast targets once you mix in Lance with what we have in waiting, a rec should not even be picked in this draft UNLESS one leaves

I love Colston, don't get me wrong -- he is one of my favorite current Saints and I want him to stay. But I think that fans of other teams, who think he is going to go to their team, with an average/ordinary QB, and they think that Colston will have more/the same type of production that he has in New Orleans, or be able to put up astounding Calvin Johnson type numbers, I think those fans are kinda delusional. I really do think that IF Colston leaves, unless he goes to an elite team with a truly great QB, he is going to suffer and he will likely wind up being extremely average, or all but forgotten within about two or three years. Colston's magical amazing skill is catching perfectly-thrown balls, that are laser targeted by Brees to the perfect precise spot where only he can catch them -- often while defenders or double teams are fooled by play action or diverted by other Saints targets in the same play (ie "where's Sproles?" Earlier it was "where's Bush?"). Average or poor throws would often be picked off/batted down/incomplete, or Colton might not make the grab, if it wasn't perfectly set up for him to catch it in stride. Colston is extremely talented, but we have all seen receivers leave Brees and the Saints and go to other teams, and then they basically disappear.

We all feel as though they love being on this team. But be for real "Money still talks". Wish we could keep all of them yet I believe we are going to lose some of them this year I will say at least one for sure. I do not believe they would take a job with anyone other than a proven playoff type team but don't kid yourself for the right money/contract anyone of them would go.

If the FO are able to keep Nicks, I would be fine with seeing both Meachem and Colston leave, because it is much easier to replace those guys then it is to find a Top 5 guard.

I think a lot of people want him including the 49ers. But in a way I think he has more value where he is because he has Brees throwing to him. Take away Brees and Colston is still good. But how good? Personally I would rather have Vincent Jackson. He's bigger, stronger and faster than Colston. Colston knows how to fit into zones and has tremendous hands. That's how he's made his living. But I don't think he is a great speed guy. He was rumored to be a 4.7 guy. Game fast is different from combine fast though. And running good routes, having great hands and good size make up for speed somewhat too.

That is my thoughts also SD49er. Now, before everyone starts burning my fan card. I love Colston. I want him to stay. But I think Drew is 6/8th of his success. That's why IMO; if we are going to really try and keep someone... my vote is for Nicks. He is one of the MAIN people on that O-Line that keeps Drew upright.

Just my 2 nickels.

Not a chance in hell. There is no way Colston is going anywhere, if anything we will release Meach.
