When you think of the New Orleans Saints, you don't instantly think of great players that have come and gone over the years. You might think of guys like Archie Manning or Bobby Hebert and the heartbreak that went along with those players. You might also think of Jim Mora and his many rants about a team that just couldn't get it together.
I, however, would like to point out a few of the players that brought hope and excitement to the team through my lifetime. The teams may have never been that great—heck, they may have never even been that good—but there were a few players that kept you wanting more. They made you think that maybe, just maybe, there might be a way to get it together. Maybe there was a way to improve, maybe we'd get better, maybe there was "hope."
Here are a few of the players that brought hope, excitement and maybe even a championship to New Orleans. This is a list of "My Favorite Saints Players of My Lifetime."
