Re: Marques Colston vs Michael Thomas

And Colston never made the pro bowl, why? Hopefully Thomas can play as many years as Colston and have as good or better production.

Re: Marques Colston vs Michael Thomas

Colston ran mainly TE style routes. As others have stated he was a quasi TE. The numbers are close but MT is a more versatile athlete and probably the best WR Brees will ever have.

Gotta admit it, I'm shocked. I knew Thomas was doing great, but putting it up side by side like that....WOW!

Re: Marques Colston vs Michael Thomas

Colston was a quiet giant on the field, in the locker room & off the field.

Thomas seems to have little more "swagger" then Colston, but i would take either of them!
