In terms of statistics, he absolutely deserves it. In that sense, he's a top 3 qb in Saints history. Won our first ever playoff game.

I don't think it will happen, just because of public perception.

The Saints HOF should be as selective as the MLB HOF pre-Deuce.


It makes you so grateful for Payton/Brees when you look back on your old favorite Saints and actually look at their stats and how many years they actually played. I mean, I used to think Gill Fenerty was the GOAT.

I just don't think he played long enough for us.

But something should be placed somewhere for this.

I would venture to say Hakeem won our first playoff game for us.

If we're going to put anyone into the Saints HOF for winning our first playoff game, it needs to be this guy....

Aaron Brooks


What a tragic QB tale. The Ditka era brought us a QB rotation of unforgettable names with forgettable performances. The most memorable being Kerry Collin's off the field issues and Billy Joe Hobbert's golf swing. The on the field highlights were Danny Wuerffel's helmet twist and 0 TD - 3 Int mark tying Doug Nuessmier's stats from the previous year.

Enter a new regime headed by Jeff Blake. An actual NFL QB who lead us to good wins with a penchant for the long ball. Then in a quick plot twist he is injured and fans are distraught. Enter our hero. An Unknown. The little guy. A guy you can root for. Aaron Brooks. Who's arm and athleticism combined with Joe Horn to set Saints franchise records and lead us to our first NFL Playoff win in franchise history. A star is born and a city rejoices.

Then, a new contract is executed and mediocrity is put into play. Endless 8-8 seasons seem to be the norm and the running QB with intensity now only smiles as he throws backward passes to the other team.

Then opportunity comes in the wake of tragedy as Katrina forces the team out of it's home and city looks to it's gridiron hero's for salvation. But finds nothing but disinterest and disdain from the former hero. Which goes to prove the old axiom...






As for the OP's question, his stats make him worthy, but his memory does not. I think he could be added and people could not really argue that he doesn't belong. But it will probably only make people dislike him more.

Absolutely.

The only people who hate him are bandwagon losers. And their first reason/excuse will be "he smiled after he threw interceptions"..or "he threw the ball backwards!".

Yes.."hate". Why would you hate him? He was in a horrible situation where he had no chance to succeed.

I don't think hating the guy for doing this equates to someone being a bandwagon fan. I just think people got angry at him for seemingly not giving a crap whether the team won or lost. The "I'm still getting paid" mentality.

But those same fans are the ones who forget how well he played at times and how he lead one of the more prolific offenses in Saints history.

I think it happens and I would agree, Brooks may of had his down falls but he actually gave us a chance to win for the first time in years.

People forget who he had as a coach in Haslett, and his lack of development was due in part to the Haslett regime

Fo sho.

well... Willie Jackson had a monster game that day too.

To tell you the truth, the only season where it was really fun to watch him under center was 2000.

2002 got off to a good start... but that meltdown at the end was god fricking awful.

I blame Haslett too though. His drafts sucked for the most part from 2003-2005.

Brooks helped the 2000 team overachieve and was one of the key contributors that the team underachieved every year after that.

but it wasn't all his fault of course. The defense never played at a level like they did in 2000 for the rest of that era.

we lost guys on defense to free agency and brought in some colossal busts like Grady Jackson and Tebucky Jones.
