Scottie-boy, You already are a legend in so many eyes, young and old. You played Pop-Warner football way back when with my son, Kyle Ford and then against him in your high school days (Ventura won the Championship y’alls senior year-sorry bud!!!) but you have gone to earn the respect of all the parents of Ventura County that watched you play with our kids. I am a die-hard Saints fan and will continue to be, but will ALWAYS watch your progress, my man. And if you say you are taking the Browns to the Superbowl, I believe it!! Take care of little Colt McCoy for me….I know you don’t block for him, wish you did!!!! Mentor him on staying true!!!! You are amazing…..

Scott, You are such a class act-Cleveland is lucky to have you. We miss you down here in the Who Dat Nation; you were one of the favorite players to watch in training camp.
It feels like a Two Dat-you will be missed!

we miss you so much in New Orleans , wish you and your family the best. but wish you were here.

We miss you Scott, good luck with your new gig and thanks for all the charitable work/actions you did for our city, for the children and people of this great country. You and your family are tops and your mom and dad are blessed and great teachers!

Born a Chargers fan, became a Saints fan at 9 now at 40 I’ll be having a soft spot in my heart for the Browns. 😉 You bring so much to the game and will be missed so much. Wishing you every success in life, you’re still a saint at our house!

You are sorely missed in NOLA! You were a family favorite, and a true role model. We enjoyed reading your Super Bowl week blog together.
I hate to admit it, but my family blames me for your departure. My wife wanted to buy your jersey, but I told her we couldn’t spend $85 on a shirt at the time. She is adamant that my rejection of you by viewing it as “just a shirt” is the reason you left town.
For the sake of the entire City of New Orleans, and selfishly for my survival in my house, I hope that you find time to visit and continue on as a role model for everyone here.
No matter where you are, your example will be contagious among your peers, and that will be your most admired legacy. You are a great player, and an even greater man. In a time where people make excuses for someone’s behavior because of extraordinary talent, it is refreshing to find someone who needs no excuses made. Thank you for giving me someone to admire in front of my kids.
