Colston Fun Fact

Colston has a knack for finding the end zone. He has caught 58 touchdowns in 102 career games, which is an average of 9.1 per 16 games. Only Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald (59) had more receiving touchdowns than Colston during that span.

Last season, Colston finished with 83 receptions for 1,154 yards, which ranked 13th in the league, and eight touchdowns. Even better, only 10 receivers scored more fantasy points than Colston in 2012.

pretty good for a late draft steal.

we may miss the mark in the earlier rounds from time to time, but we knock it out of the park later int he rounds (usually)

Would love for him to break 100. If Brees plays 5 more years he just might do it. But then again, I could see Colston sticking around for awhile

Poor guy, the media doesn't even know he exists..




Every game it's the same thing for him... Catch the ball, get a first down (or TD), give the ball to the ref, then get back to the huddle... No BS, no taunting, no thugged out D-Block shite (I'm looking at you ATL)... The dude displays nothing but class on and off the field and that's why he's one of my favorite saints of all time

I wonder if he would've had elaborate touchdown dances throughout his career if he would've been a probowler by now?

ehh wide receivers are looked down upon in the HOF process. He should finish top 40 in NFL receiving yards when he is done, and have over 10000 yards.

I'm closing in on 13,000 yards and over 100 TDs with him on Madden, bro. He's getting into the HoF.

Did you know that if you rearrange the letters in his name you can almost spell Salmon Croquettes? So close.

You can rearrange Rita Benson and spell Saint Boner though.

I find this stat amazing because Fitz is generally easily mentioned in the best wideout in the league discussions, and Colston doesn't even come to mind for those having the debate. Think about it, during this time there was Megatron, Welker, Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith, Roddy White, Brandon Marshall, and so on. All he's done is out perform all of them. Does having Drew help, hell yes. But despite his lack of blazing speed, all he does is get open, put his body in position to make a tough catch, and make td's and first downs.

Love this guy.

I would say that is incredible for a 7th rounder 3 picks from Mr. insignificant.

Decent list, but one of these don't belong



However, like the area of skin between my nuts and my poop chute, my view may be a little tainted
