Marques Colston says goodbye and thanks to Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Really hard to imagine him playing for any other team. Definitely my favorite WR to play the game and easily the most classy. Hard to understand why he never made a pro bowl. Hope he come back as a coach....

He would make an outstanding WR coach, he learned from one of the best in Curtis Johnson.

Not to be critical Smash, but you could have had two (2) more images in there of Colston burning Atlanta and Tampa Bay...

My favorite is of Payton shaking his hand pre-game; still QB at heart, Payton really appreciates Dwight Clark-type receivers...

With Colston gone we are either going with a WR similar to Treadwell or we will get a high dollar one in FA. Wouldnt surprise me if we got Treadwell somehow. This defense is loaded with defense and a tall legit number 1 receiver is a huge need. More than most realize.

I'd sure love to have a stacked offense for Brees' last few seasons and his replacement's first couple.

Having a combination of Treadwell, Cooks, Snead and Coleman all entering their prime will certainly help the transition.

But after that I'd love to see all defense, with maybe an OG or TE squeezed in there somehow.

Marques was one of the best and classiest ever to suit up for us. Forever a Saint.

Re: Marques Colston says goodbye and thanks to Saints

I once read a comment from Brees where he stated that Colston could read a defense better than most QB's. It seemed that he and Brees were always on the same page. The rare combination of size, hands and intellect meshed with Payton's high IQ offense and made Colston great.

Gonna miss him.

That explains how Colston excelled so well in finding holes in the zone.
