I voted NO. We are becoming a team that will have legitimate HOF guys in the next 10 years. Let's not cheapen our HOF by just picking 'good' players for the sake of filling up the room. When we are inducting Brees, Vilma, Colston, Evans, PT, and maybe Shockey and Sharper, will we want to see the Brooks plaque hanging there also? next to Kilmer's??

Could not have said it better.

Brooks wasn't the greatest but he is still second best.

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

I will type it..... but none of you could ever make me speak it.

Yes, put him in.

Dear Lord, I can't believe I just typed that.

I just tried "LAVA" soap and it doesn't work. Let me know when you find one that will make me "Feel clean" again.

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

Sorry FF, but you get -1 Rep just for suggesting this.

Statistics don't lie, but they don't tell the whole story, nor do they say anything but what you want them to say.

Yes, AB won our first playoff game. Thank you, Jeff Blake, for putting the team into position to get into the playoffs before you got injured. If AB had been the started the whole season, your statistic would have merit. Being a late season sub for Blake, winning a playoff game, and never being able to get us to the playoffs again? Yeah, that's HOF material. NOT.

Oh, and yes, he broke several of Archie's records. Big whoop, Archie and Aaron are polar opposites. Archie was a great QB with crappy stats, and Aaron was a crappy QB with great stats. When Archie played, he didn't have half the talent around him that Ab did, and the game of football ran differently back then. It's not a valid comparison.

Not to mention, yes, AB had lots of 3500+ yard seasons. And just how many of those yards were made during garbage time at the end of a hopelessly lost game? That is why AB was a great Fantasy QB, he couldn't get a win, but he always got the garbage time yards.

How can it be hard to ignore meaningless stats? Here is a stat for you. -1 Rep.

I thought better of you Papz, I truly did.

Dammit look what i've started now
I believe he is retired and out of football, because no one in the NFL thought he was good enough to simply hold a clipboard and warm a bench with his ass.

It isn't like he wasn't wanted after he left the Saints though. Yes, the only person who would give him a job is the same guy who drafted JaMarcus Russel as the savior of his franchise. The same guy who passed on Crabtree. The guy who make people gag at the sheer stupidity of his personnel decisions. THAT guy thought Aaron Brooks was a good QB.

Well then, maybe we should hold off on his enshrinement and only put GREAT players in our HOF.

Indeed.
