4. Bobby Hebert

Back in 1985, the Saints took a chance on a guy who had gone undrafted in 1983 and went on to become a star in the USFL for a couple of years. Bobby Hebert came out of Northwestern State before spending time with the Michigan Panthers and Oakland Invaders. Then, he signed with the Saints and split time with fellow quarterback Dave Wilson.

In 1987, Hebert took over as the team's starter and ended up going 10-2, throwing for 2,119 yards, 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions in his first real shot. He would follow that year up by having his best year with the Saints, in 1988, throwing for 3,156 yards, 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

In 1990, Hebert chose to sit out the whole season over a contract dispute, but came back to help lead the Saints to a red-hot start in 1991. Over their first nine games, the Saints went 8-1 under Hebert. But, after he went down to injury, Hebert's season was over and Steve Walsh took over.

By the time it was all said and done, Hebert would sit fourth all-time on the Saints' all-time passing list. He threw for 14,630 yards, 85 touchdowns and 75 interceptions over his career in New Orleans.
