lets hope he can do that number some justice. the last person to wear it didnt.

edit: heres a list of all of the players to wear 51, that i compiled from neworleanssaints.com. these are only players who were active for at least 1 regular season game.

51 Fraser, Jim (P) - Wisconsin 1968

51 Paul, Whitney (LB) - Colorado 1982-85
51 Mills, Sam (LB) - Montclair State 1986-94
51 McCoy, Larry (LB) - Lamar 1987 (how is this possible, considering mills was on the team from 86-94?)
51 Childs, Ron (LB) - Washington State 1995
51 Barnes, Derrick (LB) - Virginia 1997
51,50 Clarke, Phil (LB) - Pittsburgh 1999-2001

i thought it was retired after he died, and i havent seen much the last 2 seasons because i moved to atlanta temporarily, and feel bad like i missed out on 06 perhaps the best season so far, i caught the postseason, but now im back so hopefully i can see every game

I don't blame you for thinking that, because it should have been once Mills died. I knew it wasn't, but it should have been.

I wish that no one had invented the idea of retiring numbers, because all these threads are mentally challenged.

Larry McCoy perhaps was a strike player in 1987? That's my best guess...
