Which former Saint player do you miss the most?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Duece McAllister. I know it's only four games into the season but I saw things from him in 2003 that made me say "wow!" I haven't seen that this season....

I would imagine people know more about Archie and his family than most any of today's regulars.

Billy, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you are "the Gambler", and I thought this site had banned you. Guess not.
Go get 'em LB.

Wow, there's some pent up anger there.

Maybe I should have been more specific with the goal of the thread. Sure, we could discuss Hebert or Archie Manning, but what good would they be for us RIGHT NOW? That's why I tried to keep it not much further back than 10 years. For instance, guys like Lorenzo Neal, Jake Delhomme, Sammy Knight, Willie Roaf, etc are all guys who are still of playing age in this league. Even WIllie Jackson, who as best I can tell isn't on anyone's active roster, is still of a reasonable playing age at the moment.

running and passing
Jerry is not an unpopular vote......I don't understand why he couldn't make the final roster last year even as a backup...

Deuce would probably agree with you about Terrell also..

... well, I gotta tell you, what you say makes no sense either, since no one anyone mentions will play for the Saints again in the near future, if ever...

...Roaf is not coming back, Jake is not coming back, Sammy Knight is not coming back, Fontenot is not coming back...

what the thread amounts to is wishful thinking, and as long as we are thinking wishfully, why not go as far back as we want?

You make a good point, but really, this isn't brain surgery. It's a chance for people to name a fairly recent player from the Saints team who they MISS HAVING AROUND THE MOST. The key word is "miss". Why would anyone "miss" Archie Manning right now? Or Tom Dempsey? To me, when you miss having a player around, you miss having that player AT HIS PLAYING AGE. Steelers fans probably loved Bradshaw, Franco, and Mean Joe Green in the 70s, but they woudln't want to see them signed by the team today!

So would it do any good to miss Sammy Knight or Delhomme? Not really. But still, they could physically (not contractually) come in right now at their ages and play at a decent level for the New Orleans Saints. Archie and Tom Dempsey can not.

Really, it's not that complicated.

My my, half wit. Last week we were above everyone else on the board and only "stooped low" when we had to. Yet another lie. Your whole facade is crumbling.

Aren't you lying when you said that I was "above everyone else?"

Where did I ever say that. As Chris Griffin would say: LIAR!!!!!!! I"m above you and that other jerk............but you 2 don't constitute "everyone" by any means. Just last week you got onto me about interrupitng your thread with nonsense....and yet you did the same thing in THIS thread of mine. But I woudl't dare accuse you of trying to stir the pot in this thread, because you NEVER do anything WRONG WHATSOEVER.

Anyway, take your Eddie Haskell routine elsewhere.
