Great player, but he sounded like he was trying to be Longfellow , Thoreau, or Emerson.

Fail

My favorite moment was when Emmit broke up thanking Daryl Johnson.

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

I don't know. His speech kinda made me wonder if he wore a helmet when he played but at least he wasn't reading word for word off some piece of paper like Jerry Rice. As much as I like Jerry, he should have just jotted down some talking points and done the rest from his heart. Good to have a Saint in the HOF though. Now when all the busts start talking after the lights are off, there will be one to give them a WHO DAT!

Now that he's in, I think we should fully retire his #57.
You won't see Ricky as a NFL channel broadcaster anytime soon.
Rickey was just being Rickey. Does being the 1st Saints player in the HOF get your number retired? Good question. We shall see.

Put people in their place about Benson, took a jab a those toilet seats (Colts) for how they left Baltimore, said what we're all thinking about the possible lock out, and didn't back off his faith.

Sorry ..but Benson would have left in a heartbeat....Tags wouldnt let him....

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

Actions speak louder than words?The man earned his stripes on the field and I don't think after drinking a gallon of firewater(whiskey)I'd tell Rickey "your speech wasn't quite to my liking"lol. Him being a down to earth person and a LB who didn't care for a upright QB works for me.Here's to Rickey and his speech!

C'mon cher! Just imagine Rickey, Buddy D, Hokie and Hebert in the booth. I guess there would be many many references to Pahokee, Florida and fishing.

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

The last 3 speakers Jerry, Floyd and Emmitt were very articulate and great to watch. Rickey did a good job overall. WYSIWYG and I love Rickey. Only I grimaced a little when he plugged Tom Benson for the HOF (very few owners should ever be allowed into a HOF) and misstating that losing the Saints would be 10 times more devastating than Katrina (I knew the point he was trying to make, it just came across wrong).

I don't remember his exact words but I think he meant that Katrina would have been 10 times worse if the Saints had left, not that the Saints leaving would be worse than Katrina.
