If Deuce isnt on the Saints Mt. Rushmore, then a tremendous travesty has been committed!!

Not taking anything away from Jackson, Mills, Swilling & Vaughan, but IMO, only Jackson & Swilling make it. I still haven't forgiven Mills for going to the Panthers, and in all honesty, Vaughan Johnson was my favorite of the Saints LBs.

The way Deuce played in the 2006 Divisional Playoffs against the Eagles alone should be enough to get him included!

If it is players only, my four are:

Rickey Jackson
Drew Brees
Deuce McCallister
Archie Manning

If a coach is included, then replace Manning with Sean Payton!

I'm stunned. Deuce over Sam Mills? Willie Roaf? Pat Swilling? Morten Andersen?

No f'ing way on Earth does Deuce deserve it more than those guys. And if Colston and Evans keep it up a few more years Deuce slides behind them as well.

IMO, Brees shortened Deuce's career when he threw a hign screen pass and Deuce tore his ACL when he tried to catch it.

As good as the Dome Patrol was, there is no freakin' way you can put all 4 of them on the Saints Mt. Rushmore. They never won a playoff game, although I will agree that was more because of the offense.

I would 100% put Deuce in over Mills, Roaf, and Anderson. At least Roaf had the decency to play for an AFC team when he left the Saints, unlike Mills & Anderson!

Top Ten Would Be; with their flaw...

Archie Manning, he's the original and most beloved Saint; he can do no harm...

Sean Payton, even when he fails, we still respect and understand what he does - even when he surprises us; can't seem to get right with the defense and a coordinator...

Drew Brees, we can live with the INT's; but the selfish salary grab may have closed the window on a Superbowl...

Rickey Jackson - one of the greatest defenders of ALL-TIME; still using denial exercise of mental image of being a POW while he played for 49ers...

Morten Andersen - greatest kicker ever in the NFL; he was too good and made Mora even more conservative; playing for the Falcons was like the crazy uncle everyone loves but ruins Christmas one year that no one can forget...

Stan Brock - most underrated Offensive Tackle in NFL history; always regretted he didn't do a local auto improvement show with his knowledge of cars...

Sam Mills - one of the finest men to wear the Black and Gold and that hit on Herschel Walker; I know late Mora era and post Mora was dark times, but the Panthers?!?

Vaughn Johnson - one of the hardest hitters ever in the NFL; Never knocked out Joe Montana...

Pat Swilling - unbelievable pass rusher that has left us spoiled with the high bar he set; but Detroit and then Politics?!?

Jim Finks/Jim Mora - took the Saints from the League Joke to Class of the League with amazing drafts and hard hitting football; Unfortunately Jim Finks passed too soon and Mora lost his mind and undid all the good they had done with his stubborn pride...
