The pile just keeps moving backwards.
Even with all the spectacular runs he made ealier in his career this is my favorite Deuce moment.

Reuben Mayes is still a class act - one of our truly underappreciated stars...

Dalton Hilliard got the LSU love - but Reuben Mayes cutting through those blocks behind Stan Brock was truly awesome...

Deuce was our greatest back - hands down...

If we'd had a Bruce Matthews to run behind - who knows?!?

It was between Deuce and Dalton Hilliard. But Deuce was a workhorse through some pretty lean years with the team. We had a consistent back and running game, and he was pure athlete.
What he said. Reuben was a stud I was so depressed when Hilliard took over- even though I swear PT is the second coming of Hilliard - they are so similar.

This is nothing more than a power ranking, but at one position and one team.

Isn't it just as ghey?

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

Just curious, how many people voting have actually watched all of the RB's listed play?
IMO, Dalton Hilliard, Deuce McAllister no doubt

Deuce no contest. Williams was the most intimidating while healthy and lucid, which wasnt often....

Duece with a SPECIAL shout out for Chuck Muncie.
Chuck used to lay out corners and safeties that were late trying to go low.
Snap that neck and call for the trainers.
I loved that "Lightning & Thunder" combination.
May he rest in peace.

Without this play, we probably don't win SB44


The play sealed "Ambush". The timing was critical.

Brilliant piece of running.
