No and No. Jim Finks is in the HoF for his 20+ years career as a GM, not for what he did in New Orleans, and he would've never ever gone into the HoF just because of what he did in NO.

My "outside the box" pic for a SAINT to go in the HoF, Jim Everett. For the best thrashing of a jerk sports media personality. Remember Jim Rome in the morining and the thrashing he took from Everett just before his first season with the Saints. Ok maybe not HoF material but he should have gotten an ESPY or an EMMY...
Hall-of-Fame, baby!!!!

Everytime I see that clip, I giggle worse than WhoDat after he's dropped a few bars of xanax.

I guess that's why his name is in lower case under New Orleans. Oh, wait, it's not. The fact remains that those who have had major HoF contributions for multiple teams appear in CAPITAL LETTERS under those teams. If he had not had a HoF career with NO, then his name would not appear in CAPITAL LETTERS under the Saints.

Okay here is the actual word from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Website so that you can not make up whatever you want. Pay very close attention to what is written in bold (I didn't want you to miss it):

NOTE: In this listing - a Hall of Famer is named under all clubs on which he made his primary contribution to professional football - (i.e. - Chuck Noll is listed under Pittsburgh as a coach - but not under Cleveland as a player). Hall of Famers who made the major part of their primary contribution for any one club are listed in BOLD CAPS. In cases where a player contributed about equally and in a major way to two or more clubs - he is listed in BOLD CAPS under both clubs (ie. Nick Buoniconti is listed with both the Patriots and Dolphins as his primary teams). Hall of Famers who spent only a minor portion of their career with any club are listed under that club in lower case.

As we have discussed previously, Mr. Finks' name appears in BOLD CAPS under all three teams, therefore he "contributed EQUALLY and in a MAJOR way to two or more clubs". That's a fact, Jack.

That was the Jim-Chris thing right? Believe I saw that clip somewhere.

geez...

..again,

Jim Finks is in the NFL HoF because of an illustrious 20+ year career as a GM in the NFL, during which he turned the 3 different organizations he managed from losing franchises to winning franchises... his career includes 5 years with the Saints, and the Saints is one of the three teams that turned from losers to winners under Finks' watch, but turning the Saints around is not the reason why he is in the HoF. His successful 20+ years career is.

But you read whatever you want to read.

Look, I spelled it out in crayon, so that you might understand it this time.

Really, you have the reading comprehension of a 5 year old. Why am I wasting my time with you, I don't know...

For the last time. Jim Finks is in the HoF because of his career of 22 years as a GM in the NFL, which includes a stint of 5 years with the Saints. If you want to think Jim Finks is the HoF because he turned the Saints around, that's your prerogative...

Edited for language. Easy fellas. SF
