NFL Videos: Top Ten Snakebit Franchises: New Orleans Saints

Not sure if this was already posted. We're ranked sixth all time, presumably, ahead of the Lions at number 7....go figure.

The video shows Reggie getting clocked at the end. The NFL Network needs to rework this video and ranking as last year changed everything, obviously.

yer they need to show us winning the super bowl and on footballs highest stage. They need to show all the new orleanians that deserved the win so much. The only highlight they showed of us from recent times was reggie getting hit.

Re: Saints on list of Top Ten Snakebit Franchises.

I saw this vid and really didn't care for it. We've been a good team since 2006. Not to mention we had some good years before the SP era.

Since 2006 - 2 NFC South titles, 2 NFC Championship appearances, and a SB win. The poison has been sucked out. TWO-DAT!

Obviously from before the SB. If you don't understand this rating, then you didn't live through it, IMO.

Agreed. Even including '06 losing to those damn Bears, the Saints suffered through years of futility, but thanks to last season's Super Bowl victory, they finally found the antidote for that poison.

That all ended after the Super Bowl Win.

Wow. Some of you may have slight reading comprehension issues. I wasn't denying the bad years or the snake-bit PAST. But as I said we are no longer snake bit. The term refers to not being able to catch a break/bad luck....so as I see it that ended in 2006, remove us from that list. Not winning the SB doesn't mean you had a bad season. IMO if you make the play-offs you had a good season. Also, Our 07 and 08 seasons were disappointing but it wasn't due to being "snake-bit"

You do know we won our division before the SP era? Are you sure you were around for all 39 of those years you pointed out?? Or were you fair-weathered and missed a few?

"May God have mercy on those who doubted his Saints."

I'm sure I was there...and from the response of some of the others...it appears as they were there as well. The question is...

are you sure you were there?

LOL @ this. I admit due to age I was not there for all but way before 2006. I still question if you were there for all those years before like you say since we won the NFC West twice and saw a few play-off berths, Yet you say all 39 years before were bad.

REGARDLESS we are not snake-bitten anymore. Which was my point.
