Yes. He deserves to be in.
First off, for the record, I voted that he should be in. Now, to address this smiling thing.

I believe there is a clinical condition that explains this phenomena...I just don't know what it's called. It brings to mind an episode of the Bob Newhart Show.

In that episode, Emily was extremely P.O.'d at Bob, or disappointed about something...I can't really remember exactly...but Bob, knowing he shouldn't, could not help from smiling as she was ranting about whatever it was. He was trying to hide it, but eventually could not.

I have been in this situation, and I'm not really sure what causes it...but I think AB's problem, and possibly the others mentioned, may share this infliction. Just a thought, though.

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

Saw the exact same thing on a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond just last night. Debra's parents were getting a divorce and Raymond couldn’t stop smiling about it, even when he knew how serious it was to Debra. Coincidence?

My wife smiles when we get into arguments. It used to pi$$ me off! But it is a nervious reaction to anxity.

All just going to prove there are many reasons a person reacts to a thing in a certain way. All the haters ASSUME Brooks just didn't care, but there's no evidence of that. It's opinion, and short of asking Brooks there's no way to know, and I'll go way out on a limb and venture to say none of the people making those assumptions have ever had a conversation with Brooks - about that or about anything else.

Statistically speaking AB was a good quarterback and I think I'm choking as I type this but in my opinion a HOF demands more than stats. What about team spirit, leadership, community involvement? AB was a dufus at best. Brilliant one week and then couldn't find his arss with both hands the next. No, No, No, No!

Welcome...you're wrong...but welcome anyway. LOL

Just kidding...kinda...

Brooks has the numbers
Brooks has the community involvement
Can't speak for or against his "team spirit", but a number of players came to his defense at times, both on the field and in the media

If you erase the last 6 years of success and had this arguement prior to the Brees/Payton era, the answer would be yes. Wasn't like we had them lining up in the successful column. It is hard to give him his credit because of the smiling on the sidelines when we were cussing. But his numbers as a saint QB (without the Brees factor) are enough to get him in the Saint HOF.

Cant say yes to a QB that 1) Has multiple fumbles when no body was any where near him and 2) throws backwards passes to OL. The dude is junk who over achieved in 2000.
