Curse of the Black Pants: Saints deny uniform style is jinxed

METAIRIE, La. ― Two colors, four combinations, one “jinx.”

At least, that’s how Who Dat Nation sees it.

After Dallas beat a black pants-wearing Saints late in New Orleans’ 2009 Super Bowl run, the drumbeat grew louder and louder from Saints fans who knew one thing – wearing black pants was not the way to win the big game.

After the Saints lost to Atlanta in the third game this year while wearing, you guessed it, black pants, Who Dats were screaming about the uniform faux pas from the highest points they could find in flat southeastern Louisiana.

How far does their belief go that the pants are cursed? One fan went so far to document the Saints’ wins and losses and what uniform scheme they were wearing in each game since 2006.

But to the players, there’s nothing to the Curse of the Black Pants.

“I love the all black,” receiver Devery Henderson said. “I like the all black. I wouldn’t necessarily say we play better in any uniform.”

“It’s hilarious because nowadays, people will find anything to talk about,” backup quarterback Chase Daniel said. “It is amusing, yes. That’s a great word for it.”

Please, let's stick with our regular uniform and no more jinx. The white jersey's with gold pants are powerful, like voodoo.

Thank you, Ma'am! And I still can't get the image of handcuffs out of my mind every time I see your recent avatar pic.

:oops:

I think that Drew has vision problems with the black pants, it screws with his head.

I used to like the full black uniforms since we dismantled the packers in 2008, but what I want to see now is White and gold on Sundays, black and gold on primetime/ monday night games. We really kicked ass with the black and gold last year!! But then again we just straight kicked ass all year last year lol
