What is your all-time favorite obscure New Orleans Saints play?

I got into a conversation with a fellow New Orleans Saints fan, and we got into a discussion of our favorite New Orleans Saints play of all time.

For obvious reasons, Tracy Porter's game-sealing interception of Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl was the number one choice. To even get to Porter's interception, we have to talk about "Ambush," the onside kick to start the second half. By proxy, Garrett Hartley's field goal in overtime against the Vikings and Porter's pick of Favre to force overtime (both in the NFC Championship Game) were up there in importance. Steve Gleason's blocked punt in the Saints' return to the Super Dome after Hurricane Katrina will always have a special place in our hearts as Saints fans.

Yeah I think there are like 5 Epic plays
- Ambush
- Gleason block
- Porters INT
- The 2 point conversion in the SB I think gets way over looked.
- HAKIM DROPS THE BALL!!!

- 'The river city relay' was a fantastic play.
- Meachem stripping the ball and returning it for a TD.
- Reggie Bush's Fleur de leap.

obscure plays:

McCray hitting Warner
Fake FG with Szaro lining up right-footed instead of left (1977)
any Manning run for your life scramble that ended in an underhanded throw
Mills stripping an Eagles QB and taking it all the way

Its Aaron Brooks' first year and we were playing the 49ers. Two defenders crashed in on him from each side, literally jumping on top of him. Somehow he squeezed out of there and threw a bullet to Willie Jackson for a touchdown. At that time I would've believed he could walk on water.

Deuce and the offensive line overpowering the Eagles defense and pushing into the end zone from 5 yards out in the 2006 playoff game.

The play that came to mind was during Bums tenure when Dirt Winston interception on Monday night to seal our first 8-8 season.

That Meachem strip (vs Redskins) & subsequent TD was amazing. Things just fell our way. What a magical season.

It was our time.
