I was looking at his stats and he is tied for 2nd for TDs, Holt has 1 more with 7, he is first in YAC yards(WRs),8th in receiving yards. 7th in yards per game, 9th in yards per catch and has done with the least ammount of oppurtunities 25th in receptions.

And he has 2nd longest TD this year 86 yards..lol Miller had a 87 yarder in Pittsburgh.

I hope he can keep this pace up!

You fellas may have heard it or read about it....but for those who haven't...Colston, Horn, McAllister, and Bush all have a chance to go down in the NFL history books....barring injury and horrible play....all 4 players are estimated to go over 1000 yards for the season...this would be a first...:9:

What a find.....Colston is the man because he catches everything thrown his way!

He is big, strong, and tall which gives him an advantage everytime the ball is thrown. Not to mention that he is faster than CBs think which surprises them every week.

I can't wait to see what happens this week, because it is the 1st time that he faces a team for the 2nd time.

And why, exactly, is this so?
I'm curious why as well. To reach 1,000 yards for a season, a player has to average 62.5 yards per game.

Here are the per game averages after 7 games:

Colston: 82.4 ypg
McAllister: 78.9 ypg
Horn: 72.4 ypg
Bush: 71.7 ypg

And this is what they each need to average over the final 9 games to reach 1,000 yds:

Colston: 47.0 ypg
McAllister: 49.8 ypg
Horn: 54.8 ypg
Bush: 55.3 ypg

Certainly seems reasonable to believe it can happen. :shrug:

If he does not win, it is crap, I would bet money that he has been nominated the most out of any rookie, not to win. I hope he puts up solid numbers this weekend to get the all-time rookie receiving record for Saints in only week 9.

Well my guess would be that Horn and Deuce can never stay healthy for a whole season.

I think Horn has a better chance at 1000 yards then Deuce. Hes one bad hit away from the IR again with the way his knee is right now.

Oh and bush, well he may get 1000 all purpose...but if he doesn't get back to his form he was in the first 4 weeks he won't.

Back to the form of the first 4 weeks ? In the 2 games before Baltimore (weeks 5 and 6), he had 86 and 61 yards from scrimmage respectively. How quickly the memory changes after one bad game ...
