Ten Saints Who Will Never See Canton's Pearly Gates

There's not a single Saints player in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

But there will be.

Rickey Jackson has been eligible for several years now but hasn't been elected.

Willie Roaf and Morten Andersen aren't eligible yet but are almost first-ballot locks to be inducted when they are.

How is it, you may wonder, that in over 40 years of existence this franchise has only produced potentially two or three Hall of Famers?

The answer to that is hard to pinpoint. I blame Bourbon Street.

The only extended success the Saints ever really enjoyed was under the tenure of Jim Mora in the '80s and '90s.

But there is a silver lining to the years of mediocrity and failure:

At least there aren't many eligible players to choose from when making the list of top 10 Saints that will never make the Hall of Fame.

I think I'm depressed now.
