We now return to our regularly scheduled CSC programming. Today we get back to selecting players for our Canal Street Chronicles All-Time Saints team. To get back into the swing of things, today we'll take a look at offensive tackles.
Below is a list of players I've researched and deemed worthy of inclusion in our discussion of great Saints offensive tackles. There aren't really any stats for the position so decisions will inevitably come down to more than just numbers. For the purpose of this project we won't delineate between left and right tackle because the position is often interchangeable.
The poll will open at 6am Central tomorrow morning and will be open for exactly 48 hours, ending on Saturday, June 13tth. Remember again that we will hold a separate election for the second offensive tackle position.
I now open it up for any other nominations or players that you just can't believe I missed. Talk it out in the comment section. It's a lot more difficult to find information about offensive lineman so there very well may be a glaring omission. I would also love to hear some personal rumination from our readers who've actually watched these guys plays.
