It's no surprise that Marques Colston set the New Orleans Saints' career receiving record in the 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons and hardly anyone noticed. The only thing the Saints' star receiver has failed to catch during his stellar career is people's attention.

Colston's 25-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter was his 533rd catch in eight seasons moving him ahead of Eric Martin on the club's all-time list.

Colston now is the Saints' career leader in receptions touchdowns and touchdown receptions. Yet he remains the most underrated star on the roster the least appreciated great player in Saints history and the most overlooked receiver in the NFL.

He is only the seventh player to have 1000 receiving yards in six of their first seven NFL seasons. His 7462 career receiving yardage total is the ninth-highest total in the NFL since 2006. He joins Calvin Johnson Larry Fitzgerald and Brandon Marshall as the only wideouts age 30 and younger to rank among the Top 20 active players in receptions receiving yards and touchdown receptions. Yet the aforementioned high-profile trio has combined for 14 Pro Bowl appearances and four first-team All-Pro honors. Incredibly Colston still awaits his first Pro Bowl appearance.

There are plenty of reasons for the snubs. Colston's quiet understated demeanor conspires against him in today's celebrity society.

He maintains a low profile away from the field. He rarely ventures out in public and shies from the media spotlight despite being a polite and thoughtful interview subject.

He only recently joined social media. Since opening his Twitter account in April he's tweeted 11 times. His last tweet was July 17.
