New Orleans Saints posters include a sizable number of current offensive stars like Reggie Bush, Deuce McAllister, Marques Colston and Drew Brees. The team formerly known as the Aints are currently reinventing the identity of the franchise, from one of talented also-rans to perennial playoff contenders.
New Orleans Saints Posters – Reggie Bush
Reggie Bush was selected with the 2nd overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft. Bush instantly brought flash and big play ability to the Saints, who had been a major disappointment in the seasons prior. In the season after the Hurricane Katrina disaster, Reggie Bush became a star on a franchise which would bring joy to a battered city.
There are a whopping 19 Reggie Bush posters on All Posters. These include several acrobatic plays, including a diving touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers and a forward flip on a breakaway touchdown run in Soldier Field. A third photo has Bush tip-toeing into the endzone while a Philadelphia Eagles defender tries to push Bush out of bounds at the one, while another poster has Reggie Bush running away from the Chicago Bears defense. Another photo has Reggie Bush putting a move on the Indianapolis Colts defense, while another one has Bush in the air while carrying the ball against the St. Louis Rams.
Deuce McAllister adds the thunder to Reggie Bush’s lightning. Deuce is the solid inside runner for the New Orleans Saints and is a great guy off the field. McAllister was selected in the first round of the 2001 NFL Draft, and would supplant Ricky Williams in the Saints offense. Early in his career, McAllister was a big back who could break a long run. After a couple of major injuries, McAllister has become more of a straight-ahead runner.
There are three Deuce McAllister posters on allposters. One picture has Deuce making a cut against the Cleveland Browns on grass, while a second photo has Deuce breaking an arm tackle of Sheldon Brown from the Philadelphia Eagles. The final Deuce McAllister poster has Deuce running, while a superimposed Deuce McAllister with his helmet off in the background.
Drew Brees was drafted by the San Diego Chargers early in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft. Brees was meant to be the Chargers star quarterback for the next decade, but he struggled in the early years with the team. After the Chargers drafted Philip Rivers to be their future leader, Brees put together a couple of star seasons for San Diego. A missed playoffs and a shoulder injury for Brees and the Chargers in the 2005 season was enough to force Brees out the door, and he went to the Saints in the 2006 offseason. Since then, Brees has had two solid statistical years and led the Saints to the NFC Championship Game once.
Three Drew Brees posters has him standing in the pocket, about to throw the ball downfield. A fourth Drew Brees poster is my favorite, because it has Brees rolling out to his right, scrambling to avoid the rush, which is more of his fashion.
Archie Manning was the first star of the New Orleans Saints, as he led them throughout the otherwise dismal decade of the Seventies. Archie was a fan favorite and eventually settled in New Orleans to become a Saints radio announcer. This is where Archie Manning’s two Super Bowl winning sons, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning, were raised. To this day, Archie Manning remains one of the most loved Saints of all time, despite the Aints lack of playoff appearances in his tenure with the team.
Archie Manning appears in a New Orleans Saints uniform in a "Manning Generations" poster, which depicts Archie, Peyton and Eli throwing the ball for their respective teams.
The Louisiana Superdome has been a fixture of New Orleans Saints football through most of its history. The Superdome has hosted Super Bowls, Sugar Bowls and NCAA Final Four games over the decades. During the Hurricane Katrina disaster, the Superdome was a shelter for many flood victims. The dome suffered damage in the hurricane, but has been restored so the Saints could continue to play there.
AllPosters has six posters and photos of the Superdome, including an inside photo and outside shots from above.
New Orleans Saints Football Posters – Mike McKenzie
Mike McKenzie came to the New Orleans Saints as a star cornerback from the Green Bay Packers. Mike McKenzie was traded in the 2004 offseason and starred on the Saints team which went to the 2005 NFC Title game. Despite his efforts, Saints defenses this decade (besides in 2005) have often been diappointing. Mike McKenzie founded the 34 Ways foundation to help underprivileged children.
The lone Mike McKenzie poster in allposters has him preparing to cover a receiver. He is in a white Saints jersey and his trademark dreds are easily visible.
Marques Colston was a lightly-regarded 7th round draft choice out of Hofstra in the 2006 NFL Draft. Colston was a tight end in college, and many teams wondered whether he was a tweener receiver/tight end in the NFL. That is, they thought he was too small to play tight end and too slow to play receiver. So when Colston came out his rookie year and put up star numbers, the Saints got a major lift. Now, Marques Colston is one of the young star wideouts in the NFL today.
All Posters has four Marques Colston posters. One of the posters has Colston lunging ahead for a first down while a San Francisco 49ers defender tackles him from behind. A second poster Marques Colston poster has Colston breaking through the tackle of a Tennessee Titans player who is grabbing his foot. A third poster is a mash-up of the Saints Big Three: Reggie Bush, Colston and Drew Brees. My favorite Marques Colston poster has Colston leaping up to catch a ball over a Niners defender (I like the cheerleader in the background, too).
