Your WORST "I Can't Believe It" moment with the Saints...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I voted other. I think being the first team to lose to the "NEW" cleveland Browns on a last second Tim Couch hailmary was pretty low. Cleveland lost by 31 the week before and by 32 the week after. They ...

I voted other. I think being the first team to lose to the "NEW" cleveland Browns on a last second Tim Couch hailmary was pretty low. Cleveland lost by 31 the week before and by 32 the week after. They came into the Superdome with a roster of Tim Couch, Kareem Abdual Jabbar, Kevin Johnson, Leslie Shepard and Terry Kirby and beat the Great Billy Joe Boys. Ricky Williams 180 yards were not enough. That was a pretty sad moment.

It is really hard to chose a I Cant Believe it moment with the Saints. We could go on and on for days. Not to mention. If you were watching it, you knew it was going to happen.

The Saint have way more heartbreaking losses than memorable wins unfortunately. It's no so much the losing, it's the manner in which it went down for the most part. Who misses an extra point after moving the ball 80yards in one of the greatest plays of all time. Ditka also had a couple of serious brain dead clock management gafs. Anything else is before my time but I know there are too many to count of seriously bad football.

So, it was not about the worst moment as a Saints' fan as you stated... an event related to the Saints that shocked you when it took place was my interpretation of the question at hand.

... well, pardon me, then.

I didn't see----- J: All of the Above.
This explains a lot of things, mostly my daily need to drink copious amounts of brown water. Gotta love it, funny stuff...Everyone needs a good laugh once in a while. But seriously, haven't you ever heard of repressed memory? This crap didn't really happen did it? My friend Johnny Walker says its all a bad dream. But, the backward pass was priceless.

Don't take it the wrong way man, I just wanted to remind about the initial question and how it was set up, so that this thread wouldn't drift off to something it wasn't meant to be.

Nothing against you or your post.

The 2002 Meltdown in final 3 games still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Really the entire 2002 season leaves one seeing how that went.

I don't know if this has been mentioned but it was a pretty sad day when I heard that Archie had been traded to Houston. It was not so much that we were parting ways with him, but more the way the FO handled it. If I remember right, I recall Archie saying something like, "I heard it from someone on the streets."
