I voted yes. We did have a prolific offense under his helm... it's hard to argue with the numbers he put up. Now had we had a better history of successful quarterbacks in the past to stack him up against, maybe it would be a different story.

The smiling was ridiculous! The good out weighed the bad for the most part though. Yes

Makes me sick to say it but yes. Guess my anger should really be against the coaching staff for not replacing him sooner. So any future vote for Haz in the HOF would be no!

I can't forget the smiley grins after those boneheaded bad interceptions! AB caught lightning in a bottle for an extremely small glimpse in time. Once opposing teams had a chance to study him, he was average at best. And there were enough bad teams in his day to pad the numbers. He was not consistently stellar against elite competition, but rather more of a liability. Breesus has shown us what a HOF QB should look like. HOF'ers usually separate themselves more than what AB showed.
I disagree. Brooks had a mediocre offensive line at best, a less-than-stellar WR corp (with one or two exceptions), and a defense that was giving up 30 points a game, not to mention the Delhomme love going on in the dome.

Where might Brooks have taken the team if the Offensive average of 28-30 points a game was getting any backing at all from the defense at the time? The Superbowl? Maybe. Maybe not.

Brooks was a good, not great, but a good QB who annoyed folks with his mannerisms but did a lot of good things, and might have done more with even a mediocre defense.

Personally I'd rather see Brooks smile than watch Delhomme pout, but that's just me. I say put him in.

Re: Should Aaron Brooks make the Saints Hall of Fame one day?

All the Brooks hate has always rubbed me the wrong way...the boy could throw. He wasn't perfect but he could throw. SaintsHall=YES. One of the few QB's we had who could actually hit someone in stride beyond 17 yards. Mike Mac's exit was mentioned earlier as the end of Brooks, but I say Willie Roaf's exit got him killed. When his blind side came open, he was never the same. And what the %$#@ does smiling have to do with anything? He took things lightly so that he could move on; brush it off so he could line up and take another crack at it. QB's have to have a short memory...on the bad things as well as the good. Give Brooks his proper due.
