Too many to single out one specific player... for me, it goes more in time frames...

As a kid, it was Reuben Mayes, Dalton Hilliard, Gil Fennerty, Ironhead Heyward, and Vaughn Johnson that drew me into the Saints...

I really liked Derek Brown and Ray Zellars when they played for the Saints... I honestly really liked Mario Bates as well...

Loved loved loved... and still love Deuce McAllister. He’s top 5 all time for me.

Of course Drew Brees... that goes without saying...
Love Colston and now CGM...

Right now though... currently... I have a full-blown MAN-crush on Taysom Hill.. bordering on unhealthy.
Gil Fenerty!!!! Is that because you played Tecmo Super Bowl and he was the kick returner? That's why I loved him.

Looking back at the players mentioned unreal how many greats the Saints have had through out the years. More incredibly how much young talent this team currently has on the roster.

Outside of Drew Brees?

Marques Colston is my all time favorite Saint period. For any number of reasons, a 7th round pick who likely wasn't even expected to make the team....in hindsight his combine numbers for a WR his size where pretty mind-blowing, he was a much better athlete than most believe....but....he also wanted to be great, he worked his tail off to become what he was...and I honestly believe he is the most underrated WR of all time....Tough as nails, never complained, total team player....

Jon Vilma. Then Jabari Greer. I remember the massive push for a number 1 corner in the 09 off season. Everyone here (including me) wanted Ron Bartell . He resigned with the Rams. We went after Greer. That turned out to be massive. Greer was easily a top 5 corner that year. We don’t win the Super Bowl without him.

I would have to go with Ricky Jackson, Sam Mills, Wayne Martin. Wayne Martin deserves to be in the Hall. Never got the media he deserved. The media was all over Bryant Young back then but Wayne was every bit as good as him.

Wow, that’s a tough question to answer. I absolutely loved Pierre Thomas. Heck, he scored the first TD for the Saints in the Super Bowl, and that’s history for us! Then there’s this guy Taysom Hill, Deuce, Colston, Roaf, Pat Swilling, too many!!! But if I had to choose, I’d go with PT, best screen man in the NFL period
