Choosing the Canal Street Chronicles All-Time Saints Team

We are about to enter the deepest, darkest, most boring days of the NFL off-season when nothing significant will be happening, with the exception of minicamp, and the news will slow to a crawl. But the show must always go on here at CSC even when everyone else is taking a break. So to keep things interesting around here I have decided that we will start a fun off-season project: A community-chosen All-Time Saints team.

Most of you probably don't know how this works so allow me to give you the details. We are all going to work together and decide on the greatest players to ever play in the black and gold at each position. I will put together a post listing the most obvious player nominees for each position. At that time you guys can make your own nominations in the comment section if you feel I have left anyone out or you have a personal favorite. All nominations within reason will be accepted. Once we've agreed on all of the possible candidates, it will be put to a vote in a follow-up post at a pre-announced, scheduled time. Voting will be open for exactly 48 hours. The winner will be elected to Canal Street Chronicles' All-Time Saints team and placed on the sidebar for everyone to see. Any position that requires two players i.e. wide receiver, cornerback etc. will have separate elections.

I am somewhat of a younger Saints fans so I admittedly don't have much knowledge about the New Orleans Saints of past. Anything I have ever learned certainly never came first hand. I can't speak from experience when it comes to a lot of the players we will inevitably discuss so to be fair I am not going to offer any analysis on any players in these posts. But I am hoping a lot of you guys out there will. Our little project here should spark a lot of discussion. On top of nominating players I hope to see some of you reminiscing and story-telling in the comment section of these posts. I think this will be a great opportunity for our veteran Saints fans to teach some of our younger readers, myself included, about the days of yore.

No sense in wasting any more time. Today, we start with the wide receivers...
