He was probably my second favorite player behind Hilliard when I first started watching football. I was obsessed with running backs for a while.

Not sure if you were there, but I remember some Saints players played a charity basketball game at Berwick High School and Hilliard was there with Buford Jordan, Lonzell Hill, and a few others I can't recall. But I remember Hilliard had the biggest thighs I think I've ever seen.

Anyways, Brenner was the man. I loved watching him and John Tice play.

It's sad that he is considered the best TE in team history before Jimmy Graham. He averaged less than 2 catches a game over his career. He fell down after about 75 percent of his catches. But it is what it is. Saints were conservative during his era. But yeah, Graham will pass him up in this-his 4th year in the NFL, and he was either injured or a backup for about 1/3 of his career so far.

That being said, I liked Hoby Brenner.

In 12 years after his rookie season he only missed 10 games.
A rock at TE for the Saints.

Good choice Sun

Henry Childs was better at catching and especially running after the catch. Hoby fell down after every catch. Lol

Hoby was a better blocker than Henry Childs.

Also, Childs was drafted by the Falcons. I looked him up earlier.

CSB alert - in 1989 while at LSU I worked as a salesman one summer at Benson Chevrolet, and Hilliard came in to test drive a Corvette (maroon with tan leather seats) and I got the assignment.

What I remember most was that the khaki shorts he was wearing looked like they would rip apart at the thighs (think Lou Ferrigno in the Hulk).

He took it pretty easy on it on I-10, and to make small talk I asked if he kept in touch with Garry James (yes), but pretty much kept quiet beyond a reference or two to the 350 V8. My strategy to close the deal was a no-go (I half-jokingly asked if I could get his autograph on a purchase agreement), and he went on his way without talking turkey.

All around nice guy.

(Another tidbit - Sam Mills was working there early that summer, getting his feet wet in the auto dealer world).

I'm glad I'm not the only one that can personally attest to his glorious thighs

I didn't go to the game, but he did come and speak at the elementary school. I made sure to look at his thighs.

If I'm remembering the right guy, he had to have been the slowest TE in NFL history. Dude looked like he was running in slow motion.
