Can Brandon Coleman replace Marques Colston?

Re: Can Brandon Coleman replace Marques Colston?

I read a break down of Colstons and Colemans routes and it told where they lined up for the majority of their snaps. Coleman runs a majority of his routes out and up from the outside while Colston religiously went across the middle from the slot. Coleman doesn't really run the same routes as #12 the way I understand it. I don't see Coleman being the heir apparent to Colston who was a tight end in college.iirc

I wonder if he can run Coistons routes. I agree and think Paytons looking to draft the new Colston 2.0. I wouldn't argue if he could put up # like Colston did. Colston produced his rookie season and many years after.

Re: Can Brandon Coleman replace Marques Colston?

Typically its not about replacing one players production with another player.

Its about replacing a players production through schemes.

Maybe Coleman does more, and maybe we throw more to the RB's and/or TE's. Maybe we scheme to get Cooks and Snead more involved and we sign a player to help with the distribution.

We don't need someone to do everything that Colston did, we need our offense to involve others to compensate.

We didn't miss much when we lost Graham, we just adjusted to his absence and got more people involved.

Re: Can Brandon Coleman replace Marques Colston?

With Colston and Graham both gone, wow, that's really gonna hurt...

NWIH does Coleman replace Colston - No Way IH...

Wanted to draft Coleman as depth behind Colston; but, quite frankly, he reminds me of Stonehands from Necessary Roughness...

Some Johnny-come-latelys' who've been critical of Colston forget how clutch he was for Drew; thereby making Drew look clutch with Colston having that big catch radius of a bucket to drop the ball in on crucial third downs...

Age caught up to him, and that's what it is...

But the guy we need to select at 12 if he's there and validates the value of the selection is...

Could not have been better said.

Re: Can Brandon Coleman replace Marques Colston?

I'm sick of this question. Just because somebody has the height and length of someone else, that doesn't mean they are going to produce like a like-bodied person. If Coleman was going to be anything he would have proved it last year when he was put into that role. He was gift wrapped Colston's role on the team, but he's just not good enough, and it's just not going to happen. Reminds me of the saying "hope in one hand and **** in the other and see which one fills up faster."

Bottom line, I'm tired of mediocre receivers like Coleman.

REPLACE!?!?!

You can't replace him. All you can do is find another body to play a position. With who that player turns out to be is what you have.
