Best Saints Secondary Ever!
In my 45 years of watching the Saints, we've never ever been close to having a shut down secondary. It's always been "OH CRAP" .
Thats 100% true, wow. I liked Atkins, Maxie, Waymer & co, but I just thought your secondary was supposed to get bombed. That was exactly what we said back in 1987-- Oh Crap!, as Joe Montana found a crack in us, just Like our opponents must be saying now with Brees.

Now that you mention it, I'd like to have these DB's with our Dome Patrol LBs--- but I love Vilma. And Danny Clark is sure holding up too.

fun stuff.

Both teams are good in their respective eras.

The original Dome Patrol was all the Saints had back in the day. If we would have had the solid offense we have now, who knows how many SB titles we would have.

Today's secondary is amazing. Again, give partial credit to Drew Brees and our current offense for making this team so successful. If I had to choose, I'd pick our current secondary because they won a SB with it.

Back in the Dome Patrol era the Saints actually did have enough offense to win championships. The problem was they were rarely ever turned loose, and thus when it came to big time games, like playoffs, they could never handle it. That era is one of the most frustrating for me as a Saints fan. How does a team with an excellent defense, and weapons on offense like Bobby Hebert, Dalton Hillard, Eric Martin, etc... never win in the post season? Beyond me, oh wait, CARL SMITH... My goodness...

I like "NO FLY ZONE".
Dome patrol was really based on our LB's.

I couldn't decide how to vote. Then I saw highlights of Sam Mills on NFLN last night.

I just want to slit my wrists whenever Dome Patrol is even thought of to rename or compare the current defense.

I have to agree with D. Dome patrol has been thrown around WAY too much, since our defense has gotten so good in the past two years. I remember it fondly myself, but let's start thinking of new names, and new ideas.... Or not, I guess, I'm not the king around here...
