Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the New Orleans Saints.
The New Orleans Saints first came to fruition in 1967, bringing the city their first major professional sports team. The Saints were awful for their first 20 years of existence, only having two .500 years in that timeframe, and it took until 2000 for the team to record their first playoff win.
Hurricane Katrina forced the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, and for a time it looked like they might relocate. It didn’t happen, and with Quarterback, Drew Brees, they went to their first Super Bowl and won it (Super Bowl XLIV).
The Saints have fielded many competitive teams since, but have yet to return to the Super Bowl.
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NFL.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always, we announce our top five in this article. They are:
1. Drew Brees
3. Jahri Evans
4. Willie Roaf
5. Pat Swilling
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
Look for our more material coming soon!
As always we thank you for your support.
