Football HOF Profile: Willie Roaf

The New Orleans Saints have been through a lot since they were established in 1967 as they have struggled since the start. At first it was the perils of an expansion NFL team that could not afford the top players and ended up struggling for a few years. For the first few years the Saints struggled to put together wins but much of that was expected.

HOF Profile: Chris Hanburger

In the second of this series I am profiling the second senior nominee for 2011 as yet another Linebacker goes into the Hall. Chris Hanburger is a little bit more recent than Les Richter but he still played at a different time. Hanburger played at a time when rough and tough linebackers ruled as the heaviest and meanest hitters in the game. Hanburger is also a great story of the underdog making it and becoming one of the best linebackers in NFL history. Hanburger was drafted in the 18th round of the 1986 draft by the Washington Redskins out of north Carolina. Unlike Les Richter Washington did not fold and Hanburger got his chance with the team that drafted him.
