    Here is what Scott said about Marques Colston in response to a question in his "Ask NFLDC" Q&A:

    First of all Marques Colston is a very rare exception and even though I was very high on him even I didn't expect the kind of numbers he is putting up for the Saints.

    I was very curious as to what Scott thought of Colston, so I resourced his team by team reviews and brought up his review of the Saints. Here was his take on Colston (after the draft):

    With their final pick the Saints brought in another sleeper in Marques Colston of Hofstra, who despite playing wide receiver in college will likely be tried out as a tight end or H-Back due to his size. Even though the Saints really don't have a top player established at the position it would be a surprise if Colston were able to make much of an impact as a rookie.

    C'mon Scott!!!!! Hindsight is 20/20!
    Just wanted to respond:

    Notice that quote didn't say anything about what I thought of Colston as a player but merely what I thought his chances were of making the team right after the draft (before he started tearing up their camps). I had Colston as my #7 sleeper prospect, ahead of a number of guys who went much higher them him like Tarvaris Jackson and Paul McQuistan.
    I noticed. I think that guy was just trying to prove you wrong or something.

    I kept up with as much of Saints training camp as I could and I remember reading articles that mentioned how impressive Sean Patyon and the rest of the coaching staff were with Colston. Also, the emergence of Jamal Jones, someone who went undrafted but has also impressed coaches as well but still needs some development, really were the keys in trading away Stallworth. I was wary of us trading Stallworth since I thought he stepped it up last year but the risk has paid off. You never know what you're going to get from a 7th Rd. draft pick, sometimes you'll find a stud but more than likely you'll find a dud.

    I remember my friend calling me up and telling me about who we drafted in the end of the draft and he told me we drafted a wide receiver from Hofstra and I told him "what a waste. he's not making the team"
    In one of the Sportsguy's(ESPN) articles he said the reason Colston was picked so low is because the coaching staff at Hofstra bashed him to all of the NFL scouts about his additude, have you guys heard any of this? I find it a little hard to believe, seems like if that was the case you would hear about every time he made a play.

      I've heard that as well in another forum I'm in. If that's true then shame on the Hofstra coaching staff.

        Yes that is very surprising to hear that, he seems like a very well grounded kid. Who respects the game, and his coaches.

          Exactly. That's why I found it weird that they would say something like that about him.

            Does anyone else have the feeling that this is a trap game agains the 9'ers? I mean we just killed ATL and have momentum rising as we're getting ready to play Dallas. I just have that weird feeling.

              If we're looking past them SF can easily beat us. Frank Gore, Vernon Davis, and Alex Smith could spell trouble for us... I hope we can just come out with a win with no injuries.

                We can't look past SF. Yes, I agree this could turn into a trap game. We just came off a great road win against a division rival and we have a really good team in Dallas we're playing in a few weeks. SF has been playing good ball, they have an underrated coach, a blossoming offense, and an improving defense. They could beat us if we overlook them. We need to not look past them. If we handle our business then we can be 8-4 going into Dallas.

                    New Orleans Saints LB Mark Simoneau (hand) practiced Friday, Dec. 1, and he is expected to play in Week 13. He is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.


                    Saints | Horn expected to play in Week 13
                    Fri, 1 Dec 2006 14:27:27 -0800

                    New Orleans Saints WR Joe Horn (groin) practiced Friday, Dec. 1, and he is expected to play in Week 13. He is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

                    Saints | W. Smith will be game-time decision in Week 13
                    Fri, 1 Dec 2006 14:23:36 -0800

                    New Orleans Saints DL Will Smith (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he will be a game-time decision in Week 13, although it is not looking like he will play. He is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.


                    Saints | Colston will be game-time decision in Week 13
                    Fri, 1 Dec 2006 14:22:43 -0800

                    New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he will be a game-time decision in Week 13, although he is leaning towards playing. From observing him in practice, and how he has felt this week, he feels he is further along than he was last week. He is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.


                    Saints | F. Thomas expected to play in Week 13

                    New Orleans Saints RB Aaron Stecker (ankle) practiced Friday, Dec. 1, and he is expected to play in Week 13. He is listed as probable on the team's injury report.




                    Damnit, I think Smith not playing is really going to hurt. Adding pressure to Alex Smith is going to be key for us.

                      Hey guys. Its gona be quite a challenge to face you guys. Its amazing when the season started this looked like a dud, but now it could shape up seeds in the NFC. Its gona be tough to beat you guys, especially since were horrible on the road and brees is playing like a top 5 qb this season. But your team is moving up, quite quicker than any one of us thought. Heres hoping for a clean, injury free game on sunday.

                          Yeah, I would like to see Will Smith play but I'm sure we can still get it handled. Whose going to take his spot?

                            Probably Willie Whitehead.

                            Looks like Colston is going to be out for you guys as well, game might be tougher than expected.

                                I think we absolutely need to win this game in order to finish at least 10-6 (which is what I'm hoping for). I think we can win 2 out of 4 against DAL, WAS, NYG, and CAR. 3 might be pushing it.
