26 Reasons to Love No. 26

By Staff

I stumbled across a great article while on the The Times-Picayune website. The article contains a list of 26 reasons to love #26, Deuce McAllister.

Here are some of my personal favorites:

  • No. 2 – For remembering how he was treated in that backup role and making sure he didn’t make the same mistake with Reggie
  • No. 3 – For always falling forward for that extra yard
  • No. 5 – For the Philadelphia playoff game
  • No. 11 – For his 50th touchdown, a 1-yard plunge that showed us that he is still the man
  • No. 16 – For being the only Saints running back to ever make it to consecutive Pro Bowls
  • No. 17 – For not caring if he ever made a Pro Bowl
  • No. 19 – For his countless charitable acts that he doesn’t seek attention for
  • No. 21 – For always being a model of professionalism
  • No. 25 – For being a role model, a cornerstone, a teammate, and a leader
  • No. 26 – For being the definition of a Saint, in more ways than one
