The Best Saints ever

I would like to know who you think the best players to ever wear the black and gold were. How many of the Saints best are playing with the team today? Who were some of your favorites growing up?

I will never forget going outside my house as a kid and pretending to be Eric Martin, or Lonzell Hill...or beating the hell out of my little cousin when i pretended to be Rickey Jackson or Pat Swilling...or any member of the "Dome Patrol" for that matter.

I think that when you break down position by position...you could make a case that Brooks could rank as the best QB...McAllister could be the best RB...and Joe Horn could be the best WR in the team's history.

I am sure that i can catch some slack from some of you guys on that one...come on guys, no one here likes Brooks except me.

And please leave Jonathan Vilma off this list.

good point...lets go ahead and go from 1985 and on. There were only a handfull of solid players before that anyway. We\'ll go from the Benson days.

I wonder who that little cousin of your\'s was? I bet you are still laughing at the beating I took being 3 years younger, but thats ok. I would say Wayne Martin would be up there. Toi Cook lol yeah right, he got burnt more than my sister\'s cooking. Joe Johnson, Renaldo Turnbull, and Glover could be possibilities. Brett Maxie and Gene Atkins would be up there maybe. I always liked Robert Massey and Vince Buck. Jim Dombrowski, Stan Brock, Hoby Brenner are possibilities. Brett Perriman was one one of my favs growing up. Oh yeah, remember Crunch Course?

I remember meeting Vince Buck and Dalton Hilliard at a charity basketball game and i will never forget it. Eric Martin was there too and man those guys seemed so cool. It changed the way i felt about athletes being cocky. I know these guys werent superstars but they were really down to earth.

Uh... I won\'t touch that statement, but if you really want to talk about good Saints players since 1985 you\'re missing a lot.

Eric Martin, Bobby Hebert, Dalton Hilliard, Rueben Mayes, Jim Dombrowski, the Hilgenbergs (sp?), Quinn Early, Mel Gray, Floyd Turner, Wayne Martin, Frank Warren, Jim Wilks, Pat Swilling, Rickey Jackson, Sam Mills, Vaughn Johnson, David Waymer, Gene Atkins, Craig Heyward, John Fourcade (c\'mon you know you loved that midget), Renaldo Turnbull, Willie Roaf, and of course, Morten Anderson.


I probably butchered some names and may have a few guys out of order but I think that covers from about 1985 to 1992.

Listen, the group of players we have right now is more talented overall than anything we\'ve ever had. Deuce is no doubt the most talented back and should end up being the best. I think the same is true of Joe Horn. For me, the verdict is out on Brooks. Nonetheless, even with all this talent, it\'s hard to imagine a better group than those guys we had on defense in the late 80\'s and early 90\'s. SEVEN Pro Bowlers up front. That\'s unreal.

Yes...dont we all wish we could use our offense we have now with the defense of our glory days from 87-92. But a man can dream cant he.

The \"87\" Saints did not have the holes the current team does .

Carney on the Astroplay is a gamble .
The starting Linebackers for next season are an unsolved mystery .
Brooks needs to get a grip on the position .
The Tight end position is a carousel ride in the Big Easy .
The Receiver position is a hamstring pull and a cell phone call away from going down the toilet .
Duece and Darren could show up late , with show me the money thoughts on their minds .
The starting Cornerback for next season could be contingent on the Saints draft position .....
Do we need to mention the Fullback position ....

best players in my lifetime:

offense- Willie Roaf
defense- Ricky Jackson

And the Saints experience that I will never forget. When I was a New Orleans police officer and John Fourcade showed up at a city banquet with not one but two hookers. One on each arm. Classic.
