Marques Colston Deserves To Make His First Pro Bowl This Season

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is the all-time touchdown leader in Saints history, is a perennial 1,000 yard season receiver, Super Bowl champion, and the greatest receiver in Saints history. With all of that said Colston has never made a pro bowl in his seven-year career. It has always puzzled me why Colston never made a pro-bowl because he has been one of the best wide receivers since coming into the NFL back in 2006.

Colston says that he prefers to fly under the radar and it is his “quiet storm” demeanor that has garnered so much success in his career. I admire Colston’s humbleness but I think it is ridiculous that he has never been to a pro bowl. Perhaps it is because he is not as flashy as some more popular wide receivers but that should not matter because he gets the job done and he does it with consistency.

On the season Colston leads the Saints in receptions and receiving yards with 61 for 828 yards. Colston is also tied with tight end Jimmy Graham for most touchdowns for the Saints as they both have eight this year. Colston is having another great year and with four games left he should have at least 1,000 receiving yards in a season for the sixth time in seven seasons.

I know I cannot be the only one who thinks Colston is deserving of making the pro-bowl this season. Hopefully the fans, coaches, and players see what I see and Colston can secure a spot in the pro bowl for the first time in his career. A pro bowl would be a great addition to Colston’s resume but if he does not make it he will be fine with that and just keep doing what he’s doing.

I really think Colston is a future hall of famer and is very deserving of making a pro bowl. A pro bowl would just be a bonus for Colston because he has already accomplished so much in his seven-year career. Colston continues to impress and has really made a name for himself since being a seventh-round draft pick.
