Saints Offical 2010 Theme: "Our Time."
 
1 Attachment(s)
per Jeff Duncan's Twitter:

#Saints slogan for 2010 is "Our Time." Several players wore black T-shirts emblazoned with that mission statement on Thursday.

Also from a NOLA Article:That same day Payton said the coaches addressed the topic of repeating, even offering the players some statistical breakdowns of champions in several sports over the last five years; charts that showed a vacancy of back-to-back champions. "Really that topic was the first topic we brought up in the offseason program, history as it pertains to winning a championship, what are the challenges and trying to identify them and then, as coaches and players and a group collectively, battling that challenge," Payton said.

"That's the thing that gets your blood going a little bit and getting you excited about the upcoming year is knowing that it's been difficult. I think we have a smart enough locker room to understand the challenges."
It's not all dour, though, around the Saints. The team has even adopted a catch phrase that's gracing T-shirts again. In 2009 it was, "Finish Strong;" in 2010 it's, "Our Time."

Linebacker Scott Shanle said the slogan is meant to capture the permanent sheen a successful 2010 would put on the Saints team; how a strong championship defense would stamp the Saints a decade or more hence as one of the NFL's great teams. "The Patriots, the Steelers, the Cowboys, the 49ers, they all had their time," Shanle noted, making it clear the sort of company the Saints hope to join.

Brees characterized such thinking as entirely reasonable. Compared to the Saints of this time one year ago, the team lacks only Mike Bell, who shared running back duties, defensive lineman Charles Grant, who was not a factor in the team's postseason run to Super Bowl XLIV, and linebacker Scott Fujita, who was a solid starter.

I like it. It speaks to the fact we can be more than one time SB Champs. We can build something much greater. Our time did not end with The raising of the SB 44 Lombardi Trophy. TWO-DAT!

I can live with it, but it's a little too "Goonies" for me to be honest.


I don't know who was the first to use the term, but "TWO DAT" would be my preference.

It's hard to get another theme that is better than finish strong. Make it our time.

Sounds like the line from the movie Miracle when Herb Brooks tells all the guys in the locker room "This is your time". I love that movie. I like the new theme.

2 Dat is the best slogan for them. It would look great on t-shirts. It's what the fans would tell you if asked or voted. Hope the NFL hasn't copyrighted that one.
