Billy Kilmer of the New Orleans Saints in 1967

Classic New Orleans Saints action from the early days.
Back even before Archie Manning was scrambling for his life, old “Furnace Face” Billy Kilmer was dodging would-be tacklers and leading the Saints offense.
He is still #6 in the Saint’s record books for All-Time Passing Passing touchdowns and All-Time Passing yards.


I've been following the Saints since a kid in the 70s watching the likes of Archie Manning and Tommy Myers. We may not have as grandiose a history as some NFL teams, but there are scores of memories the New Orleans Saints have given to their fans and I have done my best to record them here at New Orleans Saints History.
