CSC All-Time Saints Team: Center

I am going to leave yesterday's Dome Patrol poll open another day in the interest of fairness but I would say it is safe to assume all four of them will be joining our all-time team as a unit. Sorry to those of you who don't agree but support is pretty overwhelming. 

So we will move on with our selection process. In light of recent news about the 2009 Saints I figured what better time to discuss the teams all-time centers from days gone by. Below is a list of centers I've deemed worthy of inclusion in our discussion of Saints greats at the position. Once again, there aren't really any stats so decisions will inevitably come down to more than just numbers. 

The poll will open at 6am Central tomorrow morning and will be open for exactly 48 hours, ending on Friday, June 19tth.

I now open it up for any other nominations or players that you feel I've not included. 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 play.
