Thumbs up Marques Colston Is Having A Historic Season For The New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston has been having another great season for the team and has been the best wide receiver for the Saints this season. On the season Colston has 51 receptions for 721 yards and seven touchdowns. Colston is on pace for yet another 1,000+ receiving yards season and has been a consistent threat for the Saintsí offense.

In the Saintsí 38-17 win over Oakland Raiders Colston only had four receptions for 69 yards and no touchdowns. Despite his subpar game Colston still made a nice impact on the offense and became the third New Orleans Saint in history to have 500 receptions for his career. Colston already set the Saintsí touchdown reception with 52 touchdowns back in week five but has since extended his receiving touchdown record to 55.

With his 500 receptions Colston only trails Saintsí greats Eric Martin (532) and Joe Horn (523). Furthermore, Colston only needs one more touchdown to set the Saintsí all-time touchdown record. Colstonís 55 touchdowns ties Deuce Mcallister for all-time in Saintsí history and with one more touchdown he will break the record.

It will be tough for Colston to break the record next week as the Saints will be facing a tough San Francisco 49ers defense. Unless Colston suffers a season-ending injury he will surely break the record at some point this season with six games left to be played.

Once Colston breaks the record he will cement his name in Saintsí history and he has already solidified himself as the greatest wide receiver in Saintsí history. Not bad for a seventh-round draft pick out of Hofstra.

And another year snubbed of the pro bowl. And the reason why he goes unnoticed. He's not a media pre modonna. He's the quiet storm and we wouldn't have it any other way!!!

And I still remember his first TD as a saint was in that game Aswell, hook pattern, battling for the ball in mid air and fighting his way into the endzone

My favourite colston TD is easily one vs panthers in 2008 when brees missed Marino's mark

Brees threw a dangerous pass over the middle, colstons vertical was huge and he smacked the defender in mid air whilst making the catch, then broke another tackle to get to the endzone
Can anyone find me the video, it was 2008 last game of the season vs panthers
