New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and wide receiver Marques Colston continue to be a formidable combo even if the team lost it’s recent game to the San Francisco 49ers in the process.
The combination of the two players for the Saints have become on of the most familiar with not only Saints fans, but to the rest of the NFL world as well.
Brees current streak of 54 consecutive touchdowns has been aided by the dynamic duo on many occasions and on Sunday the Saints quarterback helped Colston snag a record of his own.
A 10-yard strike by Brees to Colston against the 49ers helped the wide receiver become the Saints all-time touchdown leader with 56. The previous rcord holder was former running back Deuce McAllister.
Colston, who was a seventh-round draft pick for the Saints in 2006, is nicknamed “The Quiet Storm” for his low-key attitude but tireless work ethic. It’s one of many reasons why Brees and Colston work so well together and without a doubt will for the rest of their time in New Orleans.
