I remember this information when the deal went down. Before the Internet I was a serious AM radio junkie... LOL. Also, a while back Jimmy Johnson was being interviewed and said it turned out great for the Cowboys that the Saints insisted on Walsh. I know this is hard to believe but true. It would be nice if I can find an article on it, but that would be almost impossible at this point.
If I remember correctly, or heard correctly, it was Jerry Jones that insisted on keeping Aikman.

Great point exile, that could have been the case. It was like 40,000 cans of beer ago for me... LOL

Yep, Saints chose Walsh over Aikman.

I don't blame Hebert for leaving the Saints in the circumstances he left. In any case, Bobby is a local boy, grew up cheering for the Saints, played for the Saints, and obviously, he loves 'em Saints. He's all right by me.

I never knew that--wow!
Damn, couldnt they just play punt, pass, kick? Walsh couldnt throw the ball
over Aikman's head.

YouTube - Saints Jets WWL host Bobby Hebert reacts to fumble and TD
The guy watching Hebert is funnier than Hebert.

What's not to like about an ex Saints QB from down the Bayou who really loves the Saints and is one of their biggest fans as well???

Re: Bobby Hebert reaction to fumble. LOL!!! AWESOME!!!

Those of you who so easily brush off what he did is mysterious to me...and brings me back to my original question. All I can say is all those who welcome back the turncoat must not have been around when all this crap happened. It is beyond me how one person can cause so much chaos in an organization and still be welcome by the fans...just beyond me.

It is interesting to point out, though, that while Fourcade was finishing the season that Bobby was benched, he won the last three games on the schedule while beating a tough Philly team and a tough Buffalo team, Jim Kelly and all, in Buffalo...and in doing so won a $50K incentive bonus for Hebert. Hebert had a clause that said if the Saints won 10 games he would get the extra lettuce.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

I hear ya LB. But I think you have the wrong enemy. If I was going to choose one it would be Jim Finks. He really didn't want to pay Hebert. If an organization really didn't want to pay me I think I would also find another place to work. Even if it is the competition.

Plus, I highly doubt that even Deuce would turn down a contract from Atlanta at this point in his career. And that wouldn't make him a turncoat.

Geez...don't get me started again. If we had been counting on Deuce in any way and he held out for more money...and then we traded our future away in an attempt to replace him...and then he scored a TD against us and "flew off the field" to taunt us...I'd probably feel the same way about him.

Fair enough. I wouldn't. I would say "good for you Deuce". Then I would sit back and watch Drew tie the game.

You know...I really can't make myself hate Bobby...and I'm like SM in that I do enjoy listening to him talk, at times. Other times I don't. I can't say that I like him, either, after all that happened.

What I was wondering, from the very beginning, though, is it the fact that Bobby was from Louisiana and Favre is not from Wisconsin (sorry, DIU, I'll never talk about him in another one of your threads...and I'm not trying to be, well, you know), or will this thing eventually blow over and some day Favre will be sitting in the booth at Lambeau field doing GB games?

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!
