Probably my favorite player. Hate seeing the decline but nothing lasts forever. He better retire a Saint is all I gotta say.

Re: Marques Colston: Show The Love

Sometimes you forget but that was excellent footage to remind us of what he has accomplished as a Saint. I agree with jeanpierre I would like to see him stay a Saint. I would even say he is on my top ten list of all time favorite Saint players, on and off the field.

A true class act. I, too, hope he retires a Saint. Guys like him are few and far between in today's sports world.

He has taken a lot of punishment as a receiver. Mainly because he runs TE routes. Gets stuck almost immediately and a lot of times by two smaller defenders that have to bring it to take the big man down. Really amazed he has lasted this long to be honest.

Re: Marques Colston: Show The Love

I didn't realize he never made the Pro Bowl. That's an injustice.

2006: 70 catches | 1,038 yards | 8 TD's as a rookie.
2007: 98 catches | 1,202 yards | 11 TD's

4 straight 1,000 yard seasons from 2009 to 2012. Two 900 yards seasons in 2013 and 2014. Travesty.

I bet if he was picked in the first three rounds he would've. Its sad,really. But who cares? We as Saints fans know what we had with him. He was a huge factor in our offensive success.

The reason I like him so much - well, one of many - is that I have a pretty good feeling he doesn't care much either. I don't think that was ever any part of what it has been about for him. I could be wrong. I don't know the man. I know he's ate up with class though and from all I can tell is an asset to anything he gets involved in. I'd bet a million dollars on it if I could.
