In Football you don't go into the hall of fame as a member of a team, you go in as a hall of fame player at the postition that happened to play for team xyz when you were in the league. NFL is a complete 180 from baseball

Wish we could get a candid, unedited interview regarding his feelings and take on his moving from the Saints...

good luck Willie - I wished at the time - as I do now - that we had given you some symbolic deal which would have had you retire as a Saint. Thanks for the memories - especially our first playoff victory in franchise history.

Roaf was a blind side stud.
We were never the same once he left.
We all hope you get in.
