Name for this season?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I've been thinking about this for a couple of weeks now. I'm wondering what pundits, fans, and NFL historians will call the 2009 season with regard to the Saints. With all the nicknames flying around in the league, I'm sure ...

Name for this season?

I've been thinking about this for a couple of weeks now. I'm wondering what pundits, fans, and NFL historians will call the 2009 season with regard to the Saints. With all the nicknames flying around in the league, I'm sure we're headed for one, but what will it be?

I've been trying to push "The Holy Season." I've been saying it for weeks and tried to get it into NFL.com live chats to that people see it. No luck with that thus far.

What do the rest of you think?

I think it's 3 games to early to name it. Let's at least get past the Cowgirls.

Re: Name for this season?

If we don't win it all we'll be just another great team that didn't finish the deal.

I just can't help but dream of the 19-0 season now.

Arguably the most pathetic franchise in NFL history becomes the 1st team to go 19-0.

I get choked up just thinking about it.

From pathetic to perfection.

Re: Name for this season?

seems too religious-
fits the team name but not really representative of the fans, the Quarter, or the state everyone will be in Saturday night

Re: Name for this season?

Do you guys use that "WINNING IS A BREES" banner?

We had that.
When Drew made a big passing play, they'd play a part of that Lynyrd Skynyrd song "They call me the Brees." That part that goes "Wooooooo hoo hoo... Mr. Brees!"

Re: Name for this season?

We stress over hurricanes,
And the stock market fall,
The economy, politics,
And Chinese drywall.

But just for the moment,
Let's put these on hold,
And pull for our boys,
IN THE BLACK AND GOLD.

ON Colston, ON Shockey,
ON Thomas and Moore,
ON Bell, and Bush,
Like never before!

ON Sharper, ON Vilma,
Defense, if you please,
Forget not Coach Payton,
And our passer, Drew Brees.

Our team is on fire!
This we all know,
But Santa there's still,
A long way to go.

With your help this Christmas,
We will reach our goal,
And our Saints will win
The 2010 SUPERBOWL!

Re: Name for this season?

Whats up with naming the season? I mean isn't it the 2009 season?

I don't hear anyone trying to name it?

Agreed- maybe it's our complacency from all of the winning- nothing to b**** about, so we are creating polls & superstitions and naming seasons

maybe we could call it "Shut up and Enjoy"
