unless we get this years marquis colstan...HOFSTRA ALL THE WAY!
Colston is not as good as his stats indicate, he benefitted from a very good system and a great QB having an MVP-caliber season. If you look at the games he missed due to injury, Devery Henderson came in and had similar numbers. Colston is a good reciever, don't get me wrong, but he wouldn't do as a #1 WR and if he weren't in the Saints' offense he would not have had nearly as good of numbers. When your QB is throwing for 4400+ yards, someone has to catch for them.
Colstan is gifted, physically, he would be a great #1 anywhere else...
No, he wouldn't, he's good, but not that good. I wouldn't want him as anything more than a #2 at this point. That's not to say that he won't be a solid #1 at some point, but right now, going into his second year, I don't see him as a top tier WR. He could be a #1 on some teams (like us probably) but not on most.
Your arguments against Colston are virtually the other side of our WRs. Who knows what kind of season some of our guys, including Bennett last year could have had if we had a MVP-caliber QB throwing the ball for 4400 yards?
Good point. Now maybe everyone will get a better perspective. Just drafting Bowe or Meachum isn't going to solve all our passing game problems. If we can't generate at least the same running game from the RB position we had last year our offense will be crap except for an occasional VY highlight run. The Saints also had Reggie Bush and McCallister. All we have, right now is LW and who knows what he is going to bring.
Weren't B.Jones, Roby, Roydell, and Orr all supposed to be burners? I don't recall 40 times, but I thought all these guys clocked pretty fast. B.Jones seems to play faster as a WR than the others.
Only recievers I can see stepping up are Jones, Williams, and mayb Roby
