While we are on the subject of defining moments that kept us out of the playoffs, going into week 15 of the regular season in 2002, the Saints simply need one win in their next 3 games to secure a playoff berth. Lucky, all three of those teams, the Bengals, Vikings, and Panthers, have losing records. However, the Bengals catch the Saints off-guard, but there is still hope. In week 16, the Saints are ahead of the Vikings by 7 points in the waning minutes of the game, when Minnesota drives down the field to score six. Down by 1, the Vikings, rather than tie it by kicking the extra point decide to go for 2 - and MAKE IT!!! Still there is some hope in week 17. The opponents are the lowly Panthers. This time the Saints are sure to win, however, rather than start the healthy Jake Delhomme, New Orleans instead opt for Aaron Brooks, who has an ailing shoulder. Sure enough, in true Saints fashion, we lose for the third consecutive week and are out of the playoff, yet again. Ah, memories!

A couple of extra notes about that Minnesota Vikings game: It was actually the first of those three games. Daunte Culpepper actually fumble on that two point conversion, and still managed to run the ball in to win the game with only 5 seconds on the clock. Oh, the misery of being a Saints fan.

Here is the rest of the story: http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/recap/NFL_20021215_MIN@NO

Side Note: The Bengals only won 2 games the entire season and one of them was against the Saints the following week.

Who votes to rename this topic "The Bad Ol' Days"?

We can all put in our own candidates for the worst moments in Saints history. We have plenty to choose from.
