This is including 2013. He's really averaged 1056 a year.

The writer brings up some legit points. And it's not really an effort to discredit Colston as a player. If you read the entire article he's just talking how teams can use players to fit their scheme.

I think Colston is great. Maybe the writer should have been clearer in his compliments to Colston.

Colston has caught passes from a future Hall of Famer, Drew Brees, while Fitzgerald has spent the past three years chasing down balls from future insurance salesmen.


I had no idea Kurt Warner was a shitty QB. Fitzgerald has been in the league 9 full seasons. He had Kurt Warner throwing to him for 5 of those seasons. Warner isn't great, but he is a multi-Super Bowl appearing quarterback who led the Cards to the top of the offensive ranking for several years.

Wait, can I one of the cool kids if I say that SI sucks, hates the New Orleans and the Saints and has an agenda to downgrade anything ever accomplished by the franchise or its players?

You can be the perpetual minority iconoclast guy who will argue that SI is secretly amazing and misunderstood.

But you'd be wrong.

Oh, I'd never suggest that. It's just interesting how this and every other message board in the country thinks SI, ESPN or any national publication is biased against that board's team.

I don't think that.

But I do think the guy came off pretty belittling towards Colston.
Provocative = clicks.




And while I don't think any major publication has anything against the Saints, no one will ever convince me that ESPN, SI, etc don't have big market biases.

Oh they do. It's viewer/readership and $$$. Although traditional powers get some love too.

Everything is relative, but the Cardinals didn't. That's the point of the article.

The people in this thread, like yourself, who are can't handle that Fitzgerald is better than Colston are funny.

I guess if you say the same thing four times, it'll seem like people are agreeing with you.

So the Cardinals don't run a certain scheme that best fits their players? Okay and I've seen nothing from Fitzgerald to say he's better than Colston. Just keep believing what ESPN tells you to.

That article was an overly long winded tirade of excuses for why everyone chokes on Fitz' dick while Colston quietly has almost identical production.


"Offenseive system, lines up in the slot, blah blah blah blah blah....Colston is only good because he beats the matchups in front of him! Duh!!!"

This. Most of you are overreacting. Also, no matter how much I appreciate Colston, Larry Fitzgerald is a better receiver.
