was Colston even close to winning Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2006?
I know Vince Young ended up getting it yet his team finished with a mediocre 8-8 record.
Colston had 70 rec. for 1,038 yards and 8 TD's.
He missed 2 games because he got dinged up in the Bengals game that year. The next week the Saints thumped the Falcons and Brees put up like 350 yards passing. So you would think Colston would have had a big game that week. The other game he missed was a win over the 49ers. Reggie Bush ended up with 4 TD's in that game but Brees didn't exactly light it up that week through the air.
I mean shit, Reggie actually had a case for the honor as well.
155 carries 565 yards 6 TD's
88 rec. 742 yards 2 TD's
-also returned a punt for a TD. So he scored 9 Td's total.
Vince Young had very pedestrian numbers passing:
184 completions in 357 attempts for 2,199 yards 12 TD 13 INT's 51.5 completion percentage
but here was the bread winner I guess:
83 carries 552 yards and 7 TD's.
he won it on a team in a smaller market like New Orleans which pissed me off even more. Colston or Reggie had just as good of a case in my opinion. Who knows what would have happened had Colston not gotten hurt in that Bengals game... probably would have been screwed over anyway I guess
