CSC All-Time Saints Team Nominations: Kicker

New, comments

You probably thought we'd be moving on to selecting an exciting position like running back or maybe even quarterback for our all-time Saints team here at Canal Street Chronicles. 

Psyche!!!

We can't just leave out special teams. They are special, after all. So today we need to talk about our all-time kicker. Obviously we've got Morten Andersen. His stats with the Saints are below. But is there anyone else that could possibly give Morten a run for his money if included in an election? Should we even have an election?

If we decide to have a poll, it will open at 6am Central tomorrow morning and will be open for exactly 48 hours, ending on Saturday, July 24th.

I now open it up for any other nominations if you think someone else should be considered for the position. Or we can decide to simply forgo any election and officially name him as the all-time Saints kicker. Talk it out below and let me know your opinion. 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.
