The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't know if I can come up with 5, but here goes: 1) I never thought the Saints would win a SuperBowl, especially after Katrina ... never in a million years ... maybe come close, but never win it ...

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

I don't know if I can come up with 5, but here goes:

1) I never thought the Saints would win a SuperBowl, especially after Katrina ... never in a million years ... maybe come close, but never win it all.

2) At first I didn't think it was fair that they let Tom Dempsey kick with that specialized shoe, and then I thought, "eh, what could it hurt?".

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

I feel really good about myself. Cause I actually thought Brees would do great when he came here.

I also never gave up on the saints. Honestly there's a dozen other franchises that have a WAAYYYYYYYYY worse history than us.

Browns
Lions
Eagles
Jets
seahawks
bucs
cardinals

You never hear people talk about how bad the 9ers were in the 70s. Or the steelers in the 60s.

We've had TWO good decades(90s and 2000s and we'll probably have another good one in this decade). Most teams don't have any.

You consider the Mora/Ditka decade(90's) good?

When we go down in history as perhaps the greatest linebacking corps ever? Yes I do. You should too.

We just need to make history. Not win a super bowl.

All 4 LBs on The Dome Patrol was on the team from 1986-1992, after that it went downhill until '06... I don't think of the '90s being that good for us, after '92 we didn't make the playoffs until '00

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

1. I thought Bobby could beat the Eagles in the playoffs
2. Didn't like the Duece pick
3. I was the driver of the "draft Lianart" bandwagon
4. Thought Rickey would be the greatest running back in team history
5. Thought Ditka would lead the Saints to the Superbowl

Nonetheless That's still a decade.

Maybe I should change that to the (late 80s/early 90s and the 2000s and the coming decade).

That's still 2 more good decades than most franchises.(even if one of those decades was 2 halves put together).

Plus 8 years to reach the playoffs isn't much when you think what the lions have had to go through.

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

I thought the 67 Saints were going to be a winning team.

I thought Gary Cuozzo was the next Johnny U.

I though Bum Phillips was going to take us to the playoffs.

I thought Larry Burton was the next Bob Hayes.

I thought Bobby Scott would be good if he ever got the chance to play.

(Yeah. I'm old.)

I think its interesting to make a list of how long in terms of years it took for some teams to win a championship.

Steelers took about as long as the Saints did, some teams are waiting longer.

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

1. I never thought I'd live to see the Saints win a Super Bowl.
2. I thought Wuerffel was going to be a good pro.
3. I thought Stabler had something left.
4. Every year since I was six I thought the Saints had a shot. (42 Years)
5. I thought the "flex" defense was the answer.
