It's the moment you've all been waiting for. The moment you've been dreaming about since last summer when we first began our Canal Street Chronicles All-Time Saints Team. Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to begin the process of selecting the greatest quarterback ever to wear the black & gold.
After the jump you'll find the obvious three slingers I've nominated: Archie Manning, Bobby Hebert and Drew Brees. I know there are a few other possible names worthy of inclusion - and feel free to talk about them - but personally I think we should limit the ballot to just these three. Talk it out below.
The poll will open at 6am Central tomorrow morning and will be open for exactly 48 hours, ending on Thursday, August 12th.
I now open it up for any other nominations of players that you just can't believe I missed or to have one of the players listed below removed from tomorrows ballot. There very well may be a glaring omission or a player you just can't believe I missed. Talk it out below. I would also love to hear some personal rumination from our readers who've actually watched these guys play. Remember, this isn't just about choosing a player but allowing readers to share their memories of these players and educating those of us who never had a chance to see them.
