No one loves Sammy knight?
I do, but he's not one of the Top 5 Saints Players of all time.
Joe Horn: 4 time probowler, one year was 6 yards behind the NFL leader in receiving yards. Played without Drew Brees Joe Horn had FOUR, that's right 4 years better than Colston's Best year as a Saint.
And what does that get you? Nothing!
He doesn't have as many receptions or TDs as Colston and Colston is still in the middle of his career.
Colston is the ALL TIME TOUCHDOWN SCORING LEADER IN SAINTS HISTORY. Are you really going to exclude him because Joe Horn finished second in most yards receiving one year?
Horn and Colston played together one year with Brees. Lets compare stats.
That year, Colston as a rookie had 70 receptions for 1,038 yards and 8 touchdowns while bar b q Joe had 37 receptions for 679 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Also, Colston was a draft pick of the Saints. Added Saints Swag!
I'm as much a Joe Horn fan as anyone, but saying Joe Horn (a one time Falcon whose stats aren't as good as Colston's) is a better All Time Saint than Colston blows my mind.
