Do the Saints have a historic chance? Super Bowl first-timer records

What a week it has been since the New Orleans Saints defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship for their first ever trip to the Super Bowl.
The Saints made the cover of Sports Illustrated.
A lawsuit laid down by the NFL tried to hinder local retailers from using ther business to support the Saints and get the city ready for the big game.
Dori Monson, a Seattle radio personality, tried to take down the accomplishments of the Saints while also mocking Hurricane Katrina and its victims.i
The lawsuit handed down by the NFL was explained allowing local retailers to go back to business.
A Super Bowl prediction was made twelve years ago for this very game.
Wow, that's a lot to happen in the course of just five days and we've still got an entire week to go before the game. This week is Super Bowl Week for all the players and they will be practicing, giving interviews, going over plays, attending meetings, and dealing with everything that comes along with being a participant in the biggest NFL game of the season.
Every single sports writer and television station will be breaking down the game this week and analyzing the chances that the Saints and Indianapolis Colts both have of winning Super Bowl XLIV in Miami. There will be breakdowns of every position, how the players perform under pressure, and so much more that you couldn't possibly even think of. My biggest thought when looking at this game though is that this is the first time in franchise history the Saints have ever made it this far. Needless to say but that's a lot of pressure in itself.
With that I wonder...how have other first-timers in the Super Bowl fared when trying to win a championship?

Not counting the Saints' appearance, the 27 first time teams are 8-19. Not a very promising outlook if you're relying a lot on how much hsitory plays into future events. At least the Saints were able to get out of the grouping of five that had never made an appearance in the Super Bowl at all. Now the only four remaining teams yet to make it to the big game are:
Cleveland Browns
Houston Texans
Jacksonville Jaguars
Detroit Lions
Plenty more to come this week Saints' fans so be on the look out for stats, commentary, news, coverage, and my final prediction on the game.
