Let's not forget Willie Roaf

12/1/2010

I was just able to get into the mailbag for the first time in about 10 days (mainly because of travel and some computer issues) and was quickly reminded by some New Orleans fans that I made a big mistake in a post Sunday about the 26 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

I left former New Orleans offensive lineman Willie Roaf off the list. Totally my mistake. The Hall of Fame sent out the list shortly before the kickoff of the early games and I was rushing through a lot of work and somehow totally overlooked Roaf's name.

He's a legitimate candidate for the Hall of Fame and it would be nice if the Saints and their fans could enjoy seeing Roaf get elected the year after Rickey Jackson became the first former New Orleans player to make the Hall of Fame.

Thanks to the New Orleans fans for pointing out my error.
