I thought Mark Ingram would be Rookie of the Year last year.
Dang. I'm guilty of every one of those. Every single one.

Yep on the DItka thing.... until the Ricky Williams draft

I thought we'd go undefeated last year.

I thought Gregg Williams was the greatest thing since fried chicken. Kicking myself....kicking myself....kicking....

I still think Bum Phillips was the most entertaining coach we've ever had.

I thought Hank Stram was a pretty natty dresser.

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

I wanted the Saints to draft Vince Young (Though I was satisfied after they signed Brees).
I thought firing Randy Mueller was one of the worst mistakes in team history.
I thought the Saints "settled" on Sean Payton.
I hated the Deuce pick with every fiber of my being.
I once believed that 8-8 was an incredible achievement... Until the '00 season (and boy that didn't last long either).

I don't go by how teams did BEFORE the afc nfc merger cause


1. It was much, much, MUCH different to win a normal championship in those days. The rules were different.

2. There never was such thing AS the "super bowl".

3. The steelers in those days were not the steelers. At times I think they were even called the Pittsburgh pirates and the "steagles".

The point is the steelers were as much the steelers as the Cleveland browns are the Baltimore ravens.

I give the steelers a pass. There were a LOT of good teams then and they were new.

I was just pointing out how dumb it is how people say we were a bad franchise.

We weren't

We had TWO bad decades(70s and 90s and they weren't that bad since we had archie manning and the browns and bucs had meh) but in another decade we're the greatest linebacking corps ever and in another we're technically the greatest NFC team ever. You call that bad?

The 9ers had TWO bad decades too. (70s and 2000s) yet the 9ers are the pride and joy of the nfl cause they got 4 super bowls in a decade when there were basically no other good teams but they're the pride and joy of the NFL? BS

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

For what its worth, heres my 5:

1. I just knew we were gonna make the playoffs in '79. Our offense was hot and Dick Nolan seemed to know what he was doing.

2. I thought A. Brooks was gonna do great things.

3. I, like so many others, thought Ditka was gonna turn us into a winner.

4. I thought the Erxleben pick made sense.

5. I didn't think Sean Payton was going to get us anywhere.

Now for a couple of side notes:

1. I knew the Deuce pick was gonna be great for us. I watched him closely when he was at Ole Miss and knew he was something special.

2. I hated Bum Phillips from the minute he traded Archie and refused to watch the Saints again until after he was fired.

LOL - I was a Banquet Chef in K.C. during the Schotzenslut days. I fed the teams who played the Chiefs during that time.

Marty would show up in the lounge of the visiting team's hotel (MARRIOTT OVERLAND PARK) and try to pick up chicks. NO SHAT. My wife (at the time) was a cocktail waitress.

Another NO SHATTER - So my wife waits on Jake Plummer and some hooker and he's trying to impress her at the end of the night and my woman asks who 's room the bill will go to... ---- well, she has no idea who Jake Plummer is... so he's GROPING this girl and pauses to say, "Plummer's room". My wife breaks out in laughter at him and says, "ARE YOU ***IN' SERIOUS?" LOL "WHO'S THE PLUMMER?".

He compained, and she ALMOST LOST HER JOB OVER THAT ONE... LOLOOLOOLLOOLLLL

Ah, ***it I'm on a roll...

So the Eagles are in town, right, and they are ordering 3 pizzas per room every hour for like ten hours... the fat ***s.

It overwhelmed us and crushed the morale of our kitchen...
So... In an advance, pre-check-in meeting with trainers concerning the team's nutritional needs, they had said that they ABSOLUTELY wanted nothing to do with CORN products. "Why?" Because it makes you full and want to shat, that's why.

After being buried that night by the Eagles' pizza orders, I mixed up some cornmeal (finely-ground) waffle batter for tomorrow's waffle "station". (made to order)

Well, they complained of "SOGGY" waffles, but ATE THEM...

The rest was HISTORY...

Chiefs "squeaked" that one out! LOLOOLLLOOLLL
