Oilers Quarterback Archie Manning meets Saints Quarterback Kenny Stabler
A strange Scene in the Super Dome
A meeting before a 1983 preseason game, former Saint Quarterback Archie Manning shakes hands with the then present New Orleans Saints Quarterback Kenny Stabler.
Archie Manning, after 11 years in a Saint uniform, was traded to Houston for Offensive Tackle Leon Gray by head coach Bum Phillips. Bum’s reason’s were pretty simple. “I need an offensive tackle and Archie doesn’t tackle”. Leon Gray would last all of 1 year in New Orleans. Kenny Stabler stayed a little longer – 3 years.
