Jimmy Smith / New Orleans Times-Picayune

The expected arrival of quarterback Mark Brunell into the black-and-gold fold answers one of the most pressing offensive questions for the Saints, and brings up another intriguing, but far more trivial, query.

Let's put aside the mundane first.

Throughout his 14-year NFL career, Brunell has worn the number "8."

Of course, legendary Archie Manning wore that same number here in New Orleans, primarily because when, as a rookie, he joined the Saints out of Ole Miss, his college number of 18 was worn by defensive back Hugo Hollas.

So 8 it was. Full Story – Picayune
