Will you be satisfied with anything less than a Super Bowl victory this year?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Not winning the Super Bowl, not getting to the Super Bowl, even not getting to the playoffs... None of this takes away anything from what this team has accomplished and I will always cherish the memories of watching us win ...

Not winning the Super Bowl, not getting to the Super Bowl, even not getting to the playoffs... None of this takes away anything from what this team has accomplished and I will always cherish the memories of watching us win the Super Bowl on Bourbon St.

Even so, that doesn't mean that I don't have high expectations for this talented team, and I will certainly not be satisfied with anything but a Super Bowl win. That won't stop me from loving the Saints even if they don't win it all, but yes, I will certainly be disappointed.

This. I'd love to win the SB this year. I think we have a great shot. But if we can at least start a tradition of a team you can almost count on being in the playoffs every year that is something that attracts winners. Look at Nnamdi for example. He said one of his biggest attractions to the Eagles was that they are winners. They haven't won a SB but they are winners and have a tradition of winning and playoff appearances.

2009 Season was like this...

...we kept winning and winning and winning...

...waiting for someone to pop the proverbial balloon...

...then that last three games we lost and the naysayers reminded us of Ghosts of Saints Past...

...Arizona and MVP Kurt Warner arrived and Reggie went off and we moved on into the playoffs...

...then we stopped MVP Brett Favre and the "favored" Vikings in the final minute of the game...

...then MVP Peyton Manning, son of Archie, leading the Colts down the field, then...

...we woke up and we were Superbowl Champions...

...now we want to do it again, with full awareness, enjoying every single victory from the beginning...

...kind of like riding a rollercoaster for the first time with your eyes shut - only you want to do it again with your eyes wide open...

Another playoffs run is good. A deep run is probably best for my sanity as a Saints fan. I don't think I can watch them blow another game like Seattle. Means were are a winning organization who is in the playoffs every year, with a chance to get to the BIG DANCE. This get to the Super Bowl or bust this season is Madness. I'm surprised you haven't thrown yourself in the Mississippi. Patriots don't go to the Super Bowl every year. They are a great organization. They get to the playoffs and then they let the players decide how deep they go. And that should be our way off doing business. Let's get that good seed first and then talk about what needs to be done to get the party started.

In a word: NO

Once you've taken a drink of the sweet nectar of victory, nothing else tastes as sweet! Lombardi or Bust. Simple as that.

So, wait, you are trying to convince me that the Pats fans don't have Super Bowl expectations every year and don't feel disappointed when they don't win it all?

You have a better chance of convincing me that Jesus loves me and the moon is made of green cheese.
