Who Remembers Pig Goff?

Pig Goff, 1991 New Orleans Saints
Robert “Pig” Goff puts the pressure on Steelers Quarterback Bubby Brister in 1991 Saints action.

Not only did the New Orleans Saints defense of the early 90s had more than it’s share of dominate starters, it had solid back-ups to step in and do the job. Here is back-up nose-tackle putting the heat on Steeler quarterback Bubby Brister in 1990.
Robert Goff began his NFL career as a 4th round draft pick from Auburn by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1988 and stayed with them until the 1990 NFL season when he joined the Saints. He stayed in New Orleans until 1995 primarily as a back-up Nose Tackle to Jim Wilks but saw plenty of action starting a total of 25 games in his 6 years playing for the Black-and-Gold and recording 5½ sacks and 4 fumble recoveries. He actually led the league in 1992 in fumbles recovered for scores. He had 2. A 19-yard return against the Chicago Bears and a 28-yarder against the Dolphins.
He finished his 9-year career with the Minnesota Vikings in 1995.


I've been following the Saints since a kid in the 70s watching the likes of Archie Manning and Tommy Myers.
We may not have as grandiose a history as some NFL teams, but there are scores of memories the New Orleans Saints have given to their fans and I have done my best to record them here at New Orleans Saints History.
