Nah. Jim Taylor and Doug Atkins were the only ones officially retired...They stopped retiring numbers before Archie's time came. And Atkins was taken out in the early 90's i believe it was when we ran out of 80's numbers.

I remember that...I think it was for Michael Haynes. But I noticed that no one else has worn that # since then.

Isnt there a Manning and Jackson banner hanging in the dome?

Yes they are the only former saints players with banners. I think that is going to be the way to honor players now. You can't officially retire too many numbers anymore and still have enough to go around. Can you imagine if all of the numbers on Dallas' ring of honor were retired and couldn't be used?

Jim Taylor's number being retired by the saints is a JOKE!

I'm surprised Dallas doesn't have any retired jersey numbers.

I really want to know why his jersey was retired. I never knew about the guy so I was just wondering. If you don't have an answer then don't bother responding.


...Sorry- I accidently hit "Quote" under your post when I meant to hit "Post Reply". And I meant to post this as a reponse to the original poster to let him know this has been covered before and he can check out the original thread:
