New Orleans Saints fans dish on the losses that lingers
 
My #1 is the loss to dallas in 2009; 1a is the loss to Atlanta that ended Brees' TD streak.

Katherine asked fans to share their thoughts on which regular season New Orleans Saints loss under the leadership of Sean Payton most bothers them.

You cant move to the future with out letting go of the past.

The Atlanta loss in 2010, missing the chip shot FG to win it and then losing in OT. It cost us the division and then we got blindsided by Seattle in the playoffs

Also the opening day loss to Green Bay in 2011 that cost the Saints the #1 seed and forced us to play the 39ers on the road

No questions asked, the loss to SF in 2011 in the playoffs. Gregg Williams effectively blitzed us out of the playoffs. We win that game and the Giants have to play us in the dome and the rest is history. IMO that year was another ring. Still burns.

That 2007 loss to Indy in the season opener REALLY hurt. Because the season before we had come 1 game away from the Super Bowl, and would have played Indy, I came into that game so completely optimistic, and man we just laid a humongous egg. It was the only time in the Payton/Brees era where I felt like the team was regressing into the "same old Saints" type of loser mentality, that this was going to be like all the other years and coaching regimes before them. The WWL broadcast after that game, with people calling in, was brutal to listen to.

The Atlanta loss in 2010 was the worst as far as psychological trauma exiting the Dome. I got home and had to go sit in a darkened room in silence for a while that afternoon.

She asked about regular season losses, not playoff. But thats a pretty bad one.

The last time we played the rams..... I believe Brees streak was almost stopped but he got a garbage TD, also we tattooed the colts the week previous, and I distinctly remember them not having a win yet as well

Showing my age here, but... During the Ditka era, Saints had a 10 point lead on the Bears in Chicago with something like 2 minutes left and ended up losing 14 - 10. I was listening at work and remember kicking something when that game ended, and then being very grateful I had on steel toe shoes.
