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

Look, folks... there are two main reasons why I do threads like this:

1. the regular season isn't here yet, and

2. the Saints are one of the top teams in the NFL, and bad memories are BEHIND us (for the most part).

With that, here's the question:

What is the worst moment in Saints history for a game, string of games, or a play in which you were utterly embarrassed ... or unbelievably UPSET?

Here are a few candidates. It will be interesting to see which one everyone here (at B&G.com) puts in the #1 slot:

Brooks' backwards pass:

Marshawn Lynch (BEAST):

John Carney miss AFTER River City Relay:

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

who knew there were so many worst moments. at first glance when i saw just the question i was thinking "this is a no brainer". then i saw the answers. im still undecided.lol

i ended up picking the 49ers comeback in 2011. only because its the most recent and still hurts the most.

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

So many in 2008, the year I thought we would turn into an elite team ( we did a year later )

Gramatica misses 40 yard field goal to win the game vs. vikes 2008, Vikings went back down and scored

Blowing a 15 point lead vs redskins in week 2 2008, lost that game

2007 winning vs bucs, reggie fumbles on a wide receiver reverse, bucs went down and won with 30 seconds left


It's damn good we are an elite team now, just writing those moments put me in a bad mood lol

Without a doubt it was the River city miracle and the missed extra point.

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

Sorry, but I stand corrected in a small detail. The Falcons' massacre of the Saints was 62-7 (...vice 61-7). And those "Dirty Birds" called a timeout late in the 4th quarter in an attempt to score EVEN MORE points! >
62-7 reflects difference in past, present for Saints

I voted other, because you didn't have Ditka giving up 8!!! draft picks to get Ricky Williams in '99.

I chose "other", too. I wrote about this in another post: going 3-8 in 1993 after starting the season 5-0.

How do you start the season 5 & 0 and MISS THE PLAYOFFS? YES, MORA, I wanna talk about PLAYOFFS!

Well I was all poised to watch a comeback against Seattle when Lynch went all Earl Campbell on steriods on us. I'm still picking up pieces of my jaw off the floor.

I agree. That was such a heartbreaker. One of the most fantastic plays in NFL history kinda got nullified and Carney who has been so good for so long all of a sudden became a villain.
