Random thought, who are the most valuable non-Saints players in Saints history who's gaffs deserve a jacket? or at least a nice thank you card.

I'm a younger fan (since 2000), so maybe some of the veterans can chime in on this one.

Off the top of my head are:

Az-zahir Hakim - The famous dropped punt that helped the Saints win their first playoff game

Brett Favre - His decision to throw across his body instead of run for the first sent the Saints to the Super Bowl

Philip Rivers - If the Chargers didn't have Rivers in the building, would they have let Drew go? (not really a gaff, but still significant)

Smith-Schuster - His fumble late in the 4th gave us the win and #1 seed in 2018

Matt Ryan - The gift that keeps on giving

I like your list. "Hakeem drops the ball!" is definitely #1.

Hugh Green. I think whoever drove the Hugh Green hype lead us to Ricky Jackson.

Payton Manning's third down tendancies lead to Tracy Porter's jumping the route that sealed us the Super Bowl.

Who intercepted that ball that Meachem stole back in the Washington game? I knew it was destiny at that point.

Hakim
Favre
P. Manning (falling for the trap the Def set-up that allowed Porters pick 6)
Whoever it was that let Gleason through to block the punt in the 2006 return to the dome game.

Without looking it up, I'm gonna say Kareem Moore. I just remember Meachem taking the ball so fast, Moore's arm stayed curved as if he was still holding the ball. He was cradling air :smilielol:

Nick Saban, passing on Brees in Miami
From memory I think they did offer Drew a deal but it was a low ball offer since the team doctors didn't trust the shoulder surgery a few months earlier.

Tom Brady, for folding in the 2 games that decided this division.

2 TDs 5 Ints, a QB rating under 60.

I'm gonna vote for a few:

Chad Greenway for committing PI on Dave Thomas in OT of the NFCCG '09

Shawn Suisham for missing that chip shot field goal in 2009 in Washington which allowed Drew/Meach to tie the game and win in OT

The twelfth man in the Vikings huddle. You're my all-time favorite non-Saint, whoever you are.

This.

We likely don't have a Lombardi if not for this.
I've said the same thing many times/ If it wasn't for the 12th man,the Vikes run Chester Taylor off tackle and attempt a 40 yd.
Fg. Vikes kicker Ryan Longwell was very accurate that season. He was 8/9 from 40-49 yds.

edit. I think you can also add Adrian Peterson in that game. He was on his way to a TD at the end of the first half and fumbled the
ball. The Vikes would have kicked a Fg at the minimum if he had held on to the ball.

Looks like my memory is fading a bit :). The fumble occurs at 1.49. I thought it was a clean handoff, but Favre deserves blame as well.
