I love that Dalton is second.... BUT....
Pierre Thomas has the ring to prove it. Just sayin....

I voted for Hillard. The dude was a load.

Tony Baker needs more love on this thread. But that was a pretty long time ago.

Re: Ranking the all-time best running back greats in New Orleans Saints history

I think if PT was given the chance to be a feature back, he would suprise some people, his incredible balance on the field is what gets me shouting during the games

Got to be Deuce though, he carried the team for so many years, then tore his ACL in 2005 and came back and ripped off another 1k rushing season in 2006

The eagles game comes to mind when i think of deuce, bowling over the eagles safety and then stiff arming brian dawkins for another 10 yards, he was special

Another play from that Eagles game that I'll never forget.
