Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

Country, yes, off the cuff, yes - loved it all.

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.

I didn't like it. It seemed like he put no time into it at all. I'm a Jackson fan, and I'm glad he got in. Didn't like the speech though. Sounded like he was drunk.

Brings to mind vintage Jackson interviews... he's ALWAYS sounded like that.

Now that he's in, I think we should fully retire his #57.

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

Rickey is a great player... one of the best that played the game.

Rickey is not a great speaker. He never has been. He comes off as a simple person, but he was a genius on the playing field both physically and mentally.

I do agree he seemed un-coached. But I've met him and that's his style. He was exactly how he is in real life and probably wanted to be that way.

At least it wasn't like Jerry Rice's.

No disrespect to Jerry, but his speech sounded like a little kid was reading it.

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

While his speech wasn't polished it was from the heart I thought. He was being himself, not putting on an air. The content of what he said was far more important to me than the way he delivered it. His enshrinement into the H.O.F. is the icing on the cake of the greatest season the Saint's have ever had. Congrats to Ricky, the Saints and to us (the fans) too, for sticking by them, through all the good and bad (mostly bad) times.

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

Here's the video from NFL.com

The vid illustrates and echoes what you all have said. But it's just Rickey being Rickey. Would you want it any other way?

Re: Loved Ricky Jackson's Speech.

You can tell why most of these guys decided to play football and not become public speakers. Just sayin'.
