Who's your worst Saints ever.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Off the top of my head... Delhomme, Brooks, David (Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest) and Ditka *shudders* I remember my dad using every cuss word known to man during the Ditka days....

He wasn't a bad player .... good name in Bubba, too!

... which brings to mind ... a list of players we could have gotten with the very next pick or two that went on to become all pros....

Hey Smash, the worst case of this that I can remember is when Bum Phillips took George Rogers and passed on Lawrence Taylor who the Giants took with the very next pick. His reason: if we have Taylor on one side of the field, the offence would just run to the other side. Buddy D's answer to that was "Well, coach, then you would only have to worry about one side of the field instead of both".

We did make up for it somewhat by taking Rickey Jackson in the 2nd round. I can only imagine what our defense would have been like with both Taylor and Jackson playing together.

Delhomme started all of 2 games EVER for the Saints...how was he the worst?

Brooks? Far from the worst...

I definitely put Jason David on there, though.

Ditka? Meh. I'm indifferent. Funny thing is, I always hear about how Ditka "set this franchise back" and did "damage that took years to fix" by trading his entire draft for Ricky Williams. But how? The Saints went 10-6 and won their first ever playoff game in 2000, which is only one season after Ditka "crippled" this franchise by drafting Williams in 1999. And they hovered around 0.500 even after that.....so it's not like they went back to being a perpetual 3-13 disgrace or something.

Re: Who's your worst Saints ever.

At QB a toss up between Richard Todd and Heath Shuler, MLB Tom (LeRoy Jordan's back up!!) Stincic, WR Jubilee Dunbar and Larry Burton, CB D'artanian (my foot slipped) Martin and Fred Thomas, P/K Russell (it's my holders fault) Erxleben. Glad those days are loooooooooong gone!!!

Re: Who's your worst Saints ever.

the worst the saints ever had were russell erxleven simply because he was a punter and the no#1 pick, he actually cost us a playoff game way before we had our first 1. letting a punt to be run back for a score. he just unglued on the play. it were'nt so bad we did get to laugh all the way home after the game.
st thomas is online now
