Jordan: Does Aaron Brooks belong in the Saints Hall of Fame?
Aaron Brooks, who played for the Saints from 2000-05, was elected to the Saints Hall of Fame – along with former kicker John Carney.
A lot of Who Dats were surprised by the announcement, wondering, "Does Aaron Brooks REALLY belong in the Saints Hall of Fame?"
Now, many will disagree; but his numbers don't lie:
Completions: 1563 Attempts: 2771 Completion %: 56.4
Passing Yards: 19156 Passing TDs: 120 Interceptions: 84
Interception %: 3.0
Where does he rank compared to other Saints QBs of yore?
Counting only quarterbacks who had at least 500 pass attempts, Brooks ranks 3rd all-time in passing yards; 5th in completion percentage (4th if you only include those
QBs had at least 600 pass attempts); 2nd in passing TDs; 2nd lowest INT%; and 3rd in QB rating.
Those are some pretty darn good numbers.
Oh yeah, he also threw 4 touchdown passes in the Saints first playoff win.
