Speaks volumes to how good Rickey Jackson really was...

And he did it for longer, more consistently, and at a higher level than Von Miller...

Yep, I was a young lad when Rickey played, but for those that don't remember he was absolutely on par with Lawrence Taylor in every facet of the game.

If he had played on a winner or a big market team he'd be in the conversation as one of the best players in NFL history regardless of position.

Not bashing you JP because you're one of the old timers like me and I'm sure you'd agree... the Von Miller comparison is almost insulting because Rickey Jackson was better than Von Miller's best, and was so for almost an entire decade.


The easily offended are easily manipulated

Actually I didn't vote for a player. I voted for Tom Benson.

Not trying to knock any of the others they have worn the Black and Gold,
but by virtually any measure Brees is by far the best player to have ever played for the Saints!!

Re: Best Saints Player of All Time

I could only put 20 in the poll. I would've added all mentioned if I could've had 30 spots. Halo fix that please?

I like thinking outside the box.

Lets say...
Best Ever Offense - Drew Brees
Best Ever Defense - Rickey Jackson

But like all best ever discussions the era has to be taken into consideration. New rules favor offense now.

Would Brees be as good if he played in the 70's?

Would a 24 year old Archie be phenominal if he'd played in todays NFL for 10 years under Sean Payton?
