No offense in the NFL spreads the ball around quite like the Saints', which is on pace to make NFL history this season.

Deuce McAllister, Reggie Bush, Marques Colston and Joe Horn all are on track to gain more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year. No NFL team has had two running backs and two receivers do that in the same season.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only four teams have had four players gain more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage -- the 2004 Indianapolis Colts, the 1995 Atlanta Falcons, the 1990 Houston Oilers and the 1989 Washington Redskins. Each of those teams used one tailback and three receivers to accomplish the feat.

That's amazing, and it's why teams can't blitz us or shut our offense down. Payton is a genius and keeps me guessing along with opposing defenses.

Lets see. Indy is easy. Stokely, Harrison, Wayne, James.

Atlanta in 1995....Rison, Haynes, uhhh, Mathis maybe? Who was the RB then...

1990 Oilers is easy, I remember this from my Tecmo Bowl days. Lorenzo White RB, Haywood Jefferies WR, Curtis(?) Duncan WR, and, uhhhh, Webster Slaughter?

1989 Redskins. Art Monk, Ricky (?) Sanders, Gary Clark, and I guess the RB was Gerald Riggs still then but I don't remember.
