So allowing for Finks, who didn’t actually play for the Saints, we really have four actual players in the HOF — Jackson, Andersen, Roaf and Mills.
Yeah. 5 if you wanna include stone cold locks because Brees is getting inducted in a few years.

We’ve had a few more Hall of Famers pass through New Orleans before they called it a career: Jim Taylor, Dave Atkins, Ken Stabler, Earl Campbell and coach Hank Stram.

Brees is the only other lock we have, so far. Perhaps Sean Payton is the next most viable candidate. Other than that, I don’t think we have anyone else with quite the resume (just yet) to be a cinch.

I think Cam might have a shot eventually. Obviously he needs to finish out his career strong, but he's putting together a strong resume. A ring would help!

None of whom are in the Hall for what they did here
Real talk…do you think Sam Mills is in the HOF without his resurgence and impact in Carolina?

I personally don’t think he’d have gotten the same consideration by the Hall if not for his time in Carolina.

Agreed. He only played 9 years for the Saints which for HOF standards is pretty short. And the USFL years generally get ignored since the stats don't count, as far as the football geeks are concerned. Being the face of Carolina's franchise during their expansion put him over the top. Hard to argue otherwise since it took them 20 years to put him in even with that going for him.

With that in mind, I wonder what metric they're using for who goes in with what team, since it's not like they have to choose a hat like they do in baseball.

If Terrell Davis made it in for the Broncos, then Jamal Lewis should be in for the Ravens. Yeah I said it.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but technically they aren't in as either team. They are inducted as an idividual, not by team.

Well, TD only played for one team, as opposed to Lewis who played for two. Statistically speaking, with the numbers TD put up vs longevity of career (or lack there of), then Jamal Lewis makes the same case or a better case.

Without breaking down the numbers, the nfc south must be rock bottom. 13 teams have more players than the whole division.

It’s not surprising. The Bucs have been at the bottom or near bottom of the League for 98% of their existence. The Panthers have only been around less than thirty years. The Falcons are the Falcons. And you’re just getting a group of Saints inducted.
