Your decision can be based on anything you'd like, whether it's on the field performance, off the field antics, or anything in between. I highly encourage those veteran fans to share there memories of some of the older persons in question and make their arguments for or against. Younger members may want to wait and read what the veterans have to say before placing their vote.

To help you make your decision here's a little more info on today's contestants, courtesy of BewareofDog:

Tebucky Jones (FS 2003-2004) - Um, the Saints let Sammy Knight getaway after bringing in Tebucky Jones? I suppose that I could just let that sit right there but it wouldn't help folks who still don't know anything about Jones. Or, even Sammy Knight for that matter. Let's see, how can I put this? When it comes to being a Safety for the New Orleans Saints - Knight, good. Jones, bad. Haslett, stupid. Well, to be fair, Jones was everything you could want in an NFL Safety. He was big, fast, and had a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots. Hell, they even franchised him before trading him to the Saints for 3 draft picks (3rd, 4th, and 7th). But, with the Saints, he was a human turnstile who whiffed on more tackles than Dave Kingman on curveballs. After watching a guy like Sammy Knight be such a great player with the Saints for 6 seasons, "TeSUCKy" was a bit hard to stomach for Saints fans.

Archie Manning (QB 1971-1982) - This is a player who doesn't need a short blurb, Bio, or introduction to Saints fans. If you don't know about Archie then you shouldn't be voting in this poll. With Archie it's real simple. There are folks who absolutely love him and those that hate him. And you're gonna vote according to whichever side of the fence you're on, regardless of what anyone else has to say about it.

Voting will be open for exactly 48 hours from the time of publish. Voting results and brackets will be updated as we go along.
