Thumbs up My Greatest Saints momemt

I think some people assume or like to think that the 2006 Saints were a one year wonder and whose memory is being relegated to the back of the glorious NFL's past. But as time goes on, putting it in perspective, the game that made me think that this team was the best I had ever seen was the Dallas game, that game was so wonderful for so many reasons, it had so much resting on it, we had been seen as the underdogs in the game to the upstart Dallas Cowboys tema led by new QB Tony Romo, but when the game started and we got out to that commanding lead, it was the best of times, it really was, we were playing perhaps our most dominant game in probably 20 years, we hadnt looked this good since the 91-92 seasons. It was fun, it was entertaining, and more importantly, it was where the Saints, this team was being dominanjt in all phases of the game. You couldnt have asked for a more perfect game, Brees was being all everything, Bush and Mcallister were in rare dynamic form, and Mike Karney stole the show.

In one night, you saw a disamantling of one team by another, Bill Parcells prided himself on being a great HC and a great tough guy, well that night he was surpassed, that night we saw a Saints team in rare form and for the course of the franchise's long dismal losing streak, we became that team nobody wanted to play.

It was like we became the New England Patriots, the famed 70's Steelers teams ,and the Doomsday Defense all wrapped up into one package.

and let the NFL see this team, and in fact let them doubt us, let them say we can't win more becuase we are an overacheiving team, the more the merrier for the critics and the pundits to decry,

we shall see who laughs last in Febuary in Arizona and by them that will be every Saints fans greatest moment

Great game, great game indeed, definitely a game for the ages. You mentioned the greatness of Brees, Bush, and The Deuce, but you forgot to mention one thing, that great game plan Payton put together. In that game, the student taking it to the teacher tremendously overshadowed everything about that game. Coach Payton put together the greatest game plan of the season, it was one of the best game plans I've ever seen. If Sean Payton wins a Superbowl with the Saints(and he will), he will be look at as one of the greatest offensive minded coaches of his time, and that particular game will be immortalized, I guarantee it.

The first playoff game for the saints against the vikings. Honestly at the end of the game I was still happy. We made it. Now I am hoping and expecting Sean to lead us to many more. I honestly believe that too. Back then I did not. today I do

I was at that game. I don't remember feeling too good after that 44-10 drubbing we took from the Vikings.

The greatest moment was playing the Rams in the playoff game after the 2000 season. "Hakim dropped the ball!" still rings in my ears.

Freezing my butt off at the top of Soldier Field in January comes a close second. Thinking after Reggie''s 88 yard run that we were actually going to go to the Super Bowl after beating Chicago on their own frozen snowing field warmed me to the bottom of my heart. It slipped away eventually, but that felt pretty good for a while.

I've already decided that I'll unfortunately have to pass on seeing the Saints host a NFC championship game in person. There's no way to justify getting a ticket then having to mortgage the house to get SB tickets just a couple of weeks later.

I'm already planning on how I'm going to get into the stadium for the Saints first SB appearance. That will be the next greatest moment. Check out the new signature.

Super Bowl Championships New Orleans Saints:1, Atlanta:0, Carolina:0

...When Brees took a knee on the 3 yd line against Dallas with time on the clock. Considering the history between Parcells and Peyton, that was probably more emasculating than actually scoring the TD.

The no - atl game last year. No game has ever meant so much for me and the city. Our team was home again! When Gleason blocked that kick I thought to myself this is going to be a special night and it was. Something to tell my kids about one day. I bought a panoramic print of the inside of the dome from that game right before kickoff. It hangs in my living room. I will never forget that night it as long as I live!

The first playoff win was a big one. The home opener vs. Atl last year was uber-emotional. There were some heartbreaking ones as well that still hold alot of meaning.

Really hard to say what was the best moment ever. I can still remember the first Saints win I ever saw. Hard to pass that one.
