NFL History: Saints are one and done

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; IDK about dynasty, but I'll agree with the premise that the Saints are one of the 'big-dog' franchises. When I think of "dynasty", I think of teams like Lions ('50s), Packers ('60s), Steelers ('70s), 49ers ('80s) & the Cowboys ('90s), ...

Re: NFL History: Saints are one and done

IDK about dynasty, but I'll agree with the premise that the Saints are one of the 'big-dog' franchises. When I think of "dynasty", I think of teams like Lions ('50s), Packers ('60s), Steelers ('70s), 49ers ('80s) & the Cowboys ('90s), Patriots (new millennium). Honorable mention goes to Bills ('90s), Redskins ('80s), Vikings ('70s), Dolphins ('70s).

Winning your conference 3x (or more) in a decade is prerequisite to dynasty status, IMO.

the opportunities do not come around often and ours is now. I am an old dog and have taken to many years of tongue lashing from fans of teams that have made their mark ie san fran. i wanted a super bowl and thought at first the football gods helped us get it. now i look at this team and see a chance now that a lot of the game playing on the OL seems to be over we must think nothing but back to back to back in order to enter the promised land. i see what a difference it has made to the Pats fan and i want that for us.
i paid my dues dam it. i demand it.

The ball bounced our way on '09........this year we are forcing turnovers in every game. The ball is bouncing our way again.

So far nobody is running away. Manning is the only one in the 10s to go to two sbs since 2009, but with two different teams. Last five years it has been Indy, Pittsburgh, New England, Baltimore, and Denver representing the AFC. The NFC has been represented by NO, GB, NY, SF, and Seattle. Out of the NFC teams, Seattle is the most overrated in terms of dynasty talks, NY will probably go one more time with Eli but SF, NO, and GB have the best odds in the next year of going back a second time.
