LOL. Come on now. The Cardiac Kids lead by Brian Snipe? Had to be a good pick there somewhere.

I think that Erxleben pick was the worst. Back then, in college, they kicked extra points and field goals off a tee and there was no way to know if you could kick without one. To use a 1st round pick for a punter is typical Saints. Come to think of it, I guess the punter on those teams was pretty important. He touched the ball on one of every four offensive snaps.

i hate these articles that make it sound like the Saints have totally sucked every year. What about wayne martin, willie, turley, deuce, some of the recent picks?

There is no doubt that he was the worst pick...ever...for any team.

It is a very astute observation, Poydras, regarding kicking off a tee. It makes a giant difference...especially for guys like Erxleben who was one of a dying breed of straight-on kickers. I was a straight-on kicker, and it was almost impossible to make the transition to kicking off the ground, as my heel would drag on the turf. I also tied my ankle up...and I believe that was illegal as well. No foreign matter other than your shoe could hit the ball. In my case it would have been the shoestring tying my ankle up crossing the front of my shoe as it went underneath and wrapped around the cleat in front.

I was not aware that they could not use tees for place-kicks in college any more. Are you sure about that?

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Re: Nice Saints Draft History Read (busts)

Funny only two first round Punters i can Think of in NFL history are erxslaben and Ray Guy with the Raiders . Guy worked out ok for the Raiders and erxslaben worked out ok for ... The Falcons.... worst football memory as a kid was him throwing the ball to a Falcon who ran it in for a touchdown... I hated that guy!!!
