The All Time Worst Saints Players in Team History (Offense, Part 1)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Richard Todd is another one who needs consideration. I do agree however that Heath Shuler was worse....

Fred Thomas was only bad for one season at the end of his career, when his legs gave out because he was like 34 years old. He was solid to very good otherwise and a bright spot on some really bad defenses.

I think it's really unfair that he's remembered as a bad player because in fact the exact opposite was true. Especially considering he spent most of his career surrounded by trash like Josh Bullocks, Tebucky Jones, Jason Craft, etc.

When was the last time our defense was truly good? Our personnel was worse then it is now during our Super Bowl run. Sharper and Gregg deserve so much credit.

They forgot to mention that he recovered a Steve Gleason blocked punt and scored a touchdown.
Exactly...........now granted, I don't know (or care) what he did with the Giants or Panthers.....but what did he do with the Saints other than special teams? I'm guessing he wasn't a world-beater (aside from that one epic moment) since he only was with the Saints for 1 season....but did I miss any major moments on special teams where he looked terrible ?

I guess what I'm asking is...what would have put him on the "worst" list ? Decent or average, sure, but worst ?

My vote is for Alex Molden. All the talent in the world but would play a mile off of WR's. I wanted to close line him more than I wanted the Saints to win the game. Never could figure him out.
I have agree Cleeland was suppose to be a solid TE and was a injure nightmare and Molden was just sorry.

Don't forget that Cleeland was almost blinded in that hazing incident.
