New Orleans Saints

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 New Orleans Saints Football Preview:

Hope springs eternal for the 2009 New Orleans Saints and their fans. Sure the 2008 Saints team finished at 8-8, but they played hard in a tough NFC South division. The good news for Saints fans in 2009 is that their team returns almost entirely intact. Record setting quarterback Drew Brees is back to lead a loaded offense that features playmakers like Reggie Bush and Marques Colston. The New Orleans defense is a solid crew that features Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Charles Grant. If Head Coach Sean Payton can get his offense revved up again and his defense playing lights out, then the Saints might go marching all the way down Bourbon Street to Miami, Florida.

The New Orleans Saints play in the South Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the national Football League (NFL). In spite of the great play of legendary quarterback Archie Manning from 1971 to 1982, the Saints wouldn’t make the playoffs for their first 20 seasons. This poor performance led the team to be nicknamed the “Aints” by local fans who wore bags over their heads to home games, a tradition that has spread to other teams over the years. After Mike Ditka’s disastrous coaching stint in New Orleans, the New Orleans Saints began to improve in 2000 with Jim Haslett as coach, reaching the second round of the playoffs in his first season. Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005 and forced the team play its home games in Baton Rouge and San Antonio, Texas. The Saints homecoming season of 2006 was an emotional one, and the team played like champions making it all the way to the NFC Championship.

The New Orleans Saints play their home games at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The city finally appears to be getting back on its feet and the Superdome has become a memorial to the rebuilding effort and the hardships suffered by city residents. A game at the nearly 70,000-seat arena is an emotional experience for any football fan, city resident, or New Orleans visitor.
