Marques Colston isn't going to toot his own horn, regardless of how strong of a performance that he put together. After the New Orleans Saints defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-17 in Week 14, Colston got plenty of praise for his two touchdown catches, but he wasn't really too concerned about his own personal accomplishments. For Colston, it was just about the team.Via Joel A....

Three New Orleans Saints Who Will Make the Pro Bowl in 2015

Let me preface this article by saying no…I don’t believe that Marques Colston will be one of the players to finally make a Pro Bowl. If he hasn’t made it in the past when he was the No. 1 receiver on the best offense in the league, then he’s certainly not going to make it now when he is, at best, the second option on what will presumably be a top-five offense. With that being...
