Continuing with our list, today we will be looking at #2's in Saints history. In terms of Saints players, there have been three kickers and one quarterback that have worn it during there time in New Orleans, including a couple one season replacements.
Chip Lohmiller, K, 1995
The first player to kick four 45+ yard field goals in a single game, Lohmiller had a decent career with the Redskins. He was named to the 1991 All-Pro and Pro Bowl squads, and contributed to the Redskins Super Bowl XXVI championship. However, his time in the Big Easy was short. After missing 5 field goals and an extra point in two games, Doug Brien was brought in to replace him, ending Lohmiller's season.
One of, if not the most, mercurial players to every play for the Saints. Brooks started off strong, quarterbacking the team to the playoffs in his first year after Jeff Blake went down with an injury. 2001 and 2002 were bad seasons for Brooks, as he started showing his inconsistency. He managed to bring his level of play up again for the 2003 season, but that was where the fun ended for Brooks. After a mediocre 2004 season, and a terrible 2005, Brooks was benched for Todd Bouman for the final three games of the season. Throughout his time with the team, however, he was second only to Tom Brady in game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime. He is now a land developer.
Olindo Mare, K, 2007
Played in 13 games in the Black and Gold before injuring himself playing against the Falcons. Martin Gramatica suited up as his replacement. Mare was cut on February 27, 2008. Just another forgettable kicker, in a forgettable year.
John Kasay, K, 2011-
Signed in late August to replace injured Fat Punk Kicker Garrett Hartley, Kasay had a strong season with the Saints, helping them to an 13-3 record and the NFC South title.
Best #2- Aaron Brooks
It's hard not to choose the controversial QB here. While there were some bad moments, Brooks did give the franchise there first ever playoff win. And he's up against three kickers, not one of whom has played more than a full season with the team.
Worst #2- Chip Lohmiller
At least Mare lasted 13 games.
