Linebacker Vaughan Johnson One of Saints All-Time Best Players

For the first two decades of the New Orleans Saints, they were mostly seen as "lovable losers"....well, maybe not always so lovable (see 1980). But in 1985, Tom Benson bought the team from John Mecom, hired GM Jim Finks, as well as head coach Jim Mora, who had captured two USFL Championships. Winning soon followed, and for a 6-year stretch, the Saints won 2 out of every 3 games. Most people give the vaunted Dome Patrol most of the credit, including our #15 All-Time Saints player.
