Saints Predict-A-Poll: 1,000-Yard Receiver?

New, comments

We all know Sean Payton runs the Saints offense with precision and most importantly, balance. Combined with the sheer awesomeness of Drew Brees, it has done wonders for the best offense in the league but not necessarily for wideouts looking to rack up yardage on the field.

During the 2008 season, there were no receivers to break the barrier - Lance Moore came dangerously close with 928 yards - yet the Saints maintained the best passing offense in the league. Last season, Marques Colston was the only receiver on the team to register over 1,000 yards, though barely, breaking the milestone by only 74 yards. In fact, since Payton took over the team in 2006, Colston has been the only player to catch for over 1,000 yards in a single season.

In short, the sum of the Saints passing attack is greater than it's parts. So the question today is simple:Will any of the Saints receivers break the 1,000 yard mark. If so, who will it be?

Remember, the purpose of this series of posts will be to record everyone's predictions about the 2010 Saints season, with each post covering a specific topic. While this post may be discussing the possibility of a 1,000-yard receiver specifically, feel free to elaborate and go into detail about any and all of your prognostications regarding the Saints receiving game next season in this post. After the season, we will go back to this post and others like it for a good laugh or a pat on the back.
