New Orleans Saints announce formation of Ring of Honor
 
Way overdue!!

The New Orleans Saints announced Wednesday the formation of a Ring of Honor that will recognize former players, administrators and individuals who have played a significant role both on the field and off the field in the franchise’s history. The Ring of Honor will be displayed prominently along the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s Terrace Level fascia.

The Saints will unveil their introductory class Sunday, Nov. 10 when the team hosts the Dallas Cowboys before a nationally televised audience.

“We, as an organization, have given thoughtful consideration in an effort to properly honor the contributions of the many great people that have proudly represented the New Orleans Saints,” said Saints Owner/Chairman of the Board Tom Benson. “We are excited to induct the deserving members of the Class of 2013 and allow our fans an opportunity to honor the efforts and contributions that these people have made to our franchise.”

“The history of any organization is something that should be treasured and remembered,” said Owner/Vice Chairman of the Board Rita Benson LeBlanc. “Ours is rich in tradition as it pertains to our city, our region and our fans. The legacy of those who have contributed positively to our organization and football will be reflected in this Ring of Honor.”

The New Orleans Saints Ring of Honor selection committee is comprised of team ownership, front office administrators, team historian, former Saints players and selected members of the media. A special ceremony is planned for halftime of the game on Nov. 10. More details will be provided at a later date.

Jason David has to be one. Jonathan Sullivan next. What was that concerned citizen's name who was at one point a trainer that turned over totally true verified documents of a bounty program? Him.

And Roger Goodell.

This is who I got for past players:

Archie Manning, Ricky Jackson, Pat swilling, Sam mills, Willie Roaf, La Roi glover, Joe horn, Duece, Sharper, Steve Gleason, and maybe Sammy Knight and LeCharles Bentley down the line.

As for present players:
Colston, Graham, brees, Evans, will smith, Vilma

Forgot Morten Andersen, I just don't see Aaron a Brooks, that's the equivalent of the 49ers putting up Jeff Garcia

About to say, cannot forget Morten Anderson. Does Brooks make it? No, should not. Besides being QB of the first playoff win, I don't see the stats.

Hey I'd vote for Brooks. People forget we were averaging nearly 30 points a game while he was here and our defense could stop a pop warner offense.

Say what you will, and much of it might be accurate, but we could score back then.
