I agree, I myself am I Bengals fan. I wouldn't feel the same way about the NFL ever again. Los Angeles doesn't deserve a team. They had two teams in the 90s and they couldn't keep them. Why do they deserve a second chance? They've got the Chargers!!!

Hard to say what would have really happened? First of all, if Brees hadn't signed with the Saints, I truly believe the Saints would have drafted Matt Leinart. Who really knows how that would have turned out, Leinart may have been an all pro in Sean Payton's system, who knows.

Saints moving to Los Angeles, that would have been a kill shot in my book, I would probably have been done with football for good. San Antonio, maybe a chance that I still tune in.

Needless to say we should all be thankful that the Saints stayed in New Orleans, got a brand new Superdome, Drew Brees has been great, the Saints actually won a Super Bowl, and are a perennial contender at this time to win another big one!

10 - 4 But it would have taken every bit of SP's skills to mold Leinart into a top notch QB.

I think too many people short-change Payton in the Payton-Brees combination. Brees was a very good, but not elite QB before he teamed up with Payton.
You are absolutely correct. You have to give credit to Loomis and the Benson's for putting it all together, though. Whether it was luck or genius I don't know, but they have hit it out of the park on several acquisitions and that just doesn't happen a lot. It didn't happen here for 40+ years.

If the Saints would have moved to SA or LA, I would have rooted against them with about the same amount of hate that I have for the Cowboys and Falcons ... not saying I would have completely had turned off football but I would have moved on to another team .... thank god that didn't happen

Actually the name fits perfectly.

A team called the Saints in a city called the Angels.
