Marques Colston isnít the type to talk about himself.

Not at all.

The veteran wide receiver would rather talk about the rest of his team. In the locker room after New Orleans sealed a 24-17 win over Tampa Bay, a reporter asked Colston what his two touchdown catches meant to him after doing so much dirty work over the middle this season. Colston responded by talking about what those touchdowns meant to his team.

ďIt just meant points for our offense,Ē Colston said. ďReally, itís just putting points on the board for the team.Ē

Great player, great Saint, and even better person. Humbleness is a scarce trait in this league. No elaborate TD celebrations, no "dabbing", his has been my game-day Jersey now for almost a decade.

he's called Quiet Storm for a reason, last of a dying breed - the WR who doesn't act like a jackwagon to bring attention to themselves

Marques Colston is the classiest New Orleans Saint since Archie Manning...

Second thought, throw Sam Mills in the middle of that conversation...

I like Marques.
I also like the direction of this thread.
Just praise the guy a little. He deserves it, and he wont do it,
himself, which is rare now.

WHODAT, yall.

Just like wearing cotton in the rain, I call him the silent killer. I have always taught my son that your actions on the field will speak for themselves. No cocky arrogance, no off the field antics, consument professional. A lot of young players could learn a ton from him. I believe he epitomizes the last 6-10 years of our team….. hard working, small school barely recognized at the college level, turned all pro, world champion. I think the best compliment of all is saying he is exactly how I would want my son to be…..both he and Sam M. my two favorite.
