Shouldn't this number have been retired?

Yes and they should do it on our home opener next year.

There are presently ZERO retired Saints Jerseys.

Not even Archie's.

That retirement shine went off the day the Saints unretired #81 for that stupid Failclown we signed. I'm more for giving those numbers to players who earn them. We all know who wore what number and why it is special.

First number to be retired should be No. 8 and it should be his day alone...

The next number to be retired should be No. 57 and it should be his day alone...

Following that, the next number to be retired should be No. 7 and it should be his day alone...

Then in seven years, we can retire No. 9 and it should be his day alone

I'm not a huge fan of retiring numbers but I like when you have to earn the right to wear a certain number.

Retiring numbers is ghey.

Besides, the NFL stopped allowing numbers to be retired because you can run out of numbers at a certain position.

Its just a stinking number guys.

nope, Danno. Some numbers are sacred. Like 714.

I can see, since there are only so many 2-digit numbers why you cant retire
them. But I dont think anyone should get 57 for a good long time on our team.
Maybe allow one # to be retired per team, and ours would be #8.

The Cowboys did a pretty smart thing with that Ring of Honor. That way they didnt have to retire all those numbers, but they had, if you remember, retired Drew Pearson's #88, until Michael Irvin came along, and Pearson said it was ok for him to wear it. Then Irvin, of course embarrassed the Cowboys, Pearson's number, and the whole NFL with his coke & "self employed models" birthday party. Im not judgy, and certainly cant hate someone for making a mistake, but it was Irvin's behavior in court and the media afterwards that I found so offputting. But thats another thread.

Joe Boudreaux, or Hawthorne, of whoever, should not be wearing Ricky's number. Unless he's Lawrence Taylor. (on the field) Someone on the team should tell him and help him understand. I can understand totally, if he doesnt understand now, but someone on the team should gather some video, memorabilia, etc, and explain it. I'll bet he'd get it.

Nope, I disagree. Its hero worship gone too far. Maybe we should ban the name Jackson, Mills, Roaf, Manning and Brees from being printed on the back of player jerseys?

Maybe we should ban the 3-4 defense since we were one of the best ever?

This jersey number idolizing is a bunch of crap. Hang the dude's Jersey and name on the dome wall and be done with it. As much as we all hate the Cowboys the ring of honor idea is pretty good.

You don't retire #57 without retiring #8, or #51, or #26, #77, #46, #19, #56, and #7.
