I guess it depends how you slice the final day. The final day should be "0"...gotta save a day for Obert Logan!

One of my favorite Saints. #29 Sammy Knight.










quote:

An undrafted free agent signed in 1997. Played 6 years for the Saints with one Pro Bowl in 2001. He started 89 games, had 5 sacks and 28 interceptions with 4 TDs and 440 tackles for the Saints. Was elected to the Saints hall of Fame in 2011. Currently works with DBs at USC.


Career totals: 168 starts, 9 sacks, 42 interceptions with 4 TDs and 792 tackles.

He has the most interceptions returned for a TD in Saints history (4) and he is third all time in interceptions in Saints history (28).

re: Alltime Saints Jersey # Countdown to First Preseason Game


A post so nice I'm using it twice: (w/ updated stats)



DEUCE

I remember watching the draft and thinking, "Didn't we just give up all of our draft picks two years ago for Ricky Williams?" I did remember Ole Miss trying to make a "22 for Hiesman" campaign for Deuce and remembered that he was their go to guy for everything. I remember not liking him much either because he was from Ole Miss, but I was going to give him a chance although I thought he would be the NFL version of Kevin Faulk (3rd down back/PR/KR). WRONG. Fast forward and he's definently one of my favorite Saints of all time.
I remember being at the game when he broke the record for most touchdowns. Awesome!

In the Louisiana Sports and Saints Hall of Fame. Was in the 2002 & 2003 Pro Bowl.


Some stats to back up his Saintness:

All time rushing yards leader in Saints history.
1 Deuce McAllister 6096
2 George Rogers 4267
3 Dalton Hilliard 4164
4 Rueben Mayes 3408
5 Chuck Muncie 3393
6 Ricky Williams 3129
7 Pierre Thomas 2974
8 Tony Galbreath 2865
9 Mario Bates 2554
10 Wayne Wilson 2462

Fourth in overall scoring, first by a non-kicker, as a Saint.
1 Morten Andersen 1318 (points)

3 Doug Brien 513

5 Deuce McAllister 330
6 Dalton Hilliard 318
7 Joe Horn 306
8 Eric Martin 288
9 Charlie Durkee 243
10 Danny Abramowicz 222

Secontd in all time touchdowns as a Saint.
1 Marques Colston 58
2 Deuce McAllister 55
3 Dalton Hilliard 53
4 Joe Horn 50
5 Eric Martin 48
6 Lance Moore 37
7 Danny Abramowicz 37
8 Tony Galbreath 33
9 Reggie Bush 33
10 Pierre Thomas 33


All time rushing touchdown leader as a Saint.

Yeah, he's fifth. I had to go back and move Colston up the list of TDs and points.


PT moved ahead of Galbeth on that list this past year.

re: Alltime Saints Jersey # Countdown to First Preseason Game


Deuce is an alltime great example of drafting BPA over need.Just two seasons earlier a #5 overall pick (whole draft actually) was invested in RW. RW had just had a 1000yd season. Then you take another 1st Rd RB? He was just too good to pass on at #23! Who were the next 5 picks that might could have been Saints? Willie Middlebrooks, Freddie Mitchell, Jamar Fletcher, Michael Bennett, & Derrick Gibson.

I honestly looked, but couldn't find a good picture of him.




I really liked him out of Florida and thought he'd be good for us.
