Re: Do you think the Saints are built to be a Dynasty?

Definately wayyy too early to be talking dynasty. Right now my eyes are on making the playoffs and having homefield throughout as I didn't like our chances in that snowy Chicago game of 2006 (although Vikings may be the main threat and at least they are in a dome)

On a more pressing level....nice avatar homer lol

Again, the question isn't "are we a dynasy", its are we built " to become one", meaning we aren't one yet.

- Additional fans and merchandise nationwide
- Non-fans get tired of hearing about that team

By my definition there were only two dynasties in the NFL in this decade - New England and Pittsburg. For the Saints, this would be, at best, year 1 of a budding dynasty. And if Armageddon comes in 2012 we're screwed.

I guess what people call a "dynasty" in football is a team that wins 3 championships within 5 years. You only hear the 70's Steelers, the 80's Whiners, then 90's Cowboys, and the 2000's Pats being referred as a dynasty.

True. No one is denying what we have now. Its nice to be solid at key positions...but whose to say we will even be able to afford to keep these "pieces" of a potential dynasty

The word dynasy and Saints have no place together. This thread is the kind of thread that other team's boards would tear apart. "Oh look, the Saints fans think their a dynasy".

In any case, when I saw your thread, I laughed. Are we built to be a dynasty? Depends on how long Greg Williams stays.

Re: Do you think the Saints are built to be a Dynasty?

Sounds like we have a consensus. The Saints are putting the pieces in place to enable several seasons of championship contention. They won't actually be a dynasty unless they win 2-3 Super Bowls, which is a tall order indeed. The difference between the Eagles and the Patriots of the last several years is a handful of plays made or not made at critical times.

What are the key pieces of a perennial contender? I would say outstanding QB, outstanding coaching, high character players, depth at all positions, no high-priced free agents, and a culture of continuous improvement. The Saints have made a lot of progress putting those pieces together. If they keep heading in that direction, they will be very good for a number of years. As for championships, that is up to the football gods.
