New Orleans Saints

If one were to choose just one word to sum up the New Orleans Saints for the first three decades of their existence, that word would be…too impolite to print. Between their first NFL game in 1967 and their season-ender at the tail of a 1999 season when they went 3-13, the Saints made the playoffs just four times and never won a playoff game. Their first postseason game of all time, in fact, was not until 1987 when they were pummeled 44-10 by the Minnesota Vikings in a NFC Wild Card matchup. One can only imagine the determination and devotion of the Saints fanswho kept going to their team’s games through those many lean years and believing that somehow, one day, things would change. The turn of the millennium brought a brief spark of hope, when the Saints won their first-ever playoff game (yep, after 33 years of trying) in a 31-28 defeat of the St. Louis Rams 31-28 in the NFC Wild Card, but this was followed by five straight seasons in the wilderness. Things got worse in 2005 when Mother Nature struck against New Orleans and the Saints, sending Hurricane Katrina hurtling towards the city and causing all manner of death and destruction. The Saints’ home stadium, the Superdome, which was used (rather inadequately) to house evacuees from the disaster, could not be used for the 2005 season, forcing the team to play their home games in Texas and Baton Rouge. The Saints recorded another 3-13 season, though given the circumstances, it was a mini-miracle that the team was able to play in the league at all. The following season in 2006 is one of the biggest, most inspiring tales of a turnaround in NFL history. Saints fans came out in record numbers to show pride in their rebuilding city and returning team, selling out the Superdome with season tickets alone. A blocked punt in the opening game that led to a Saints touchdown seemed to set the tone for not only the game (which they won) but the whole season, in which the Saints reversed their 2005 record by finishing 13-3. In the playoffs, they blew out the Arizona Cardinals 45-14, squeaked past the Minnesota Vikings 31-28 in overtime, and then, as considerable underdogs, upset the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 at Super Bowl XLIV to secure what must be one of the most improbable and surprising NFL championship wins of all time. Recent years had seen the Saints become more competitive in the regular season and playoffs, even coming within a field goal of another Super Bowl appearance in 2018 when they lost to the Los Angeles Rams 26-23 in overtime. With their army of devoted fans in New Orleans, in future seasons it does seem likely that the Saints will keep on marchin’ in.
