Roafin' Off


Da Paper ran a gleaming tribute to former NFL Running Back Marshall Faulk yesterday, as the former 9th Ward standout became the first naturalized N'awlinian to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Y'heard? But curiously missing from this year's Canton class was the lone former Saint among this year's Hall finalists - offensive lineman Willie Roaf. How could this happen? Well, take heed as we make an overarching generalization in true sports punditry fashion. Just going out on a limb here, but overall, it was a bad year for hard-nosed big guys. Even Jerome Bettis didn't make it, and his nickname was "The Bus." If that doesn't quite explain things, Who Dat Dish has some more (and better informed) musings. Better luck next year, Willie!
