Re: Saints on list of Top Ten Snakebit Franchises.

I still remember all those Monday Night Football half time highlights. Howard Cosell would rave about how the Saints played lights out for the first 3 quarters, and would bomb it in the end. Yeah, as a true Saints fan speaking here, it was very painful to watch... Saints snakebitten, yes for sure. Thank goodness a Super Bowl win finally came our way!

Re: Saints on list of Top Ten Snakebit Franchises.

I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this mentallity at all. The Saints were a solid contender, from 1987, all the way through 1994. How many play off appearances were in there? Yes. No wins, but we had some solid seasons in there. I am proud to have the superbowl win, and proud of where the team is now, BUT, I am just as proud of the teams we had back then. That is a good part of our history. Why some people seem to forget that is beyond me.

Re: Saints on list of Top Ten Snakebit Franchises.

No one forgets the late 80's.

IMO, "Most SnakeBitten Teams"; means just that. We have been snake bit here in the past couple of years.

Just to give a couple of recent ones....

1. Lose Colston for the year due to injury

2. The infamous reverse fumble to Bush that lost us the game

3. I don't remember the year... I do remember it was in the late 80's maybe '90, Saints vs Rams...Saints are scoring TD's like "Mad Crazy" blowing out the Rams....then slowly but surely... Rams win.

We have not forgotten the "so called, Good years". These, these years are the Saints' truly "Good Years".
