One particular reason is that they believed Harper played his best football with Carolina. Any thoughts?

Harper was a very solid “in-the-box” SS during his prime. He was excellent vs the run and a very good blitzer... and he was serviceable in coverage. His “prime” didn’t really last very long, but the Saints won their SuperBowl during it.

He might have started the non-definable position type of player trend the Saints seem to love. Being very good at multitasking and being a great leader goes a long way in today’s world.

Unfortunately when I think of Harper I remember those terrible shoulder tackle attempts late in his career. Hated those. I liked him as a player here overall but I yelled at the tv alot when he would whiff trying to throw that shoulder tackle.

When your most memorable play is getting burned by Vernon Davis for the game winning TD in a divisional playoff game, I'd vote No to the saints HOF.

Not to say he wasn't a good player for us, bit not Hof worthy

The Saints hall of fame as people have said is pretty easy to get into. Now, with that being said, Harper was a very good in the box blitzing, stuff the run type safety. He was a tweener linebacker/safety and it showed when he had to open field cover. However, for the vast majority of the time he was a very good player and from what I’ve heard an exceptional man and leader.

Most people will look at stats and make the determination if he’s HOF worthy, Football is more than just what you can rack up on paper.

It has been said by numerous players how much of a leader Roman is and I think that has to go into consideration.

Speaking for myself I can tell you how invaluable it is to have someone who can lead people and motivate them even on the worst of days.

He deserves the Saints HOF along with every starter from 2009. It’s not the ring of honor. I liked his play, his toughness and leadership. What harm is there? Is there some limit to the number of players? Put them all in.

I follow him on twitter.

I have the feeling ANY solid starter who is remembered on that SUPER BOWL winning team deserves it. Those clickbaiting local media can kick rocks

WHO DAT!!
U know what. Put all 53 on that team on there. I would applaud. Because I am 49 years old and may die never seeing another one. If Tracy Porter personally came up to me every day asking for 20 bucks I would give it to him, no questions asked. Our grandchildren may be the next to witness a Saints SB winner. Should have won 3 and been to 5 since that year. Between the Clown, refs, and football gods turning their backs on us, I am 100 percent jaded. BTW 2011 would destroy any Saints team ever. Damn PT concussion and it was over. Oh, and a zero blitz with a lead.

Easy there....
