navy ugg boots New Orleans Saints fans dish on the losses that lingers
Katherine Terrell, with her keen insight into the collective mind of the Who Dat Nation and razor sharp journalistic instincts, seems to know just what question to ask at just the right time.
Judging from the response to her question from earlier today, you, good readers, think so too.
Katherine, I know this question was in regards to the regular season, but I would like to include the playoffs just momentarily. The absolute worst loss for me was in 2006 against the Bears in the championship game. Having spent many previous years living in Chicago and knowing many Bears fans, I wanted to see the Saints whoop ’em! I was obviously disappointed. However, I wanted to share that game because I have never been SO angry over a football game in my life! In fact, there isn’t anything that comes close. I just remember my wife telling me she will never watch football again with me if I act like that! Hahahahahahah.
for old hats like me, the Sean Payton era has been incredible. I remember watching poor ole’ Archie getting the snap, than start running for his life to buy time to find someone, anyone, open. I remember the eras of Tom Fears, John North, JD Roberts, and all of the losing coaches that we have had over the years. I’m still pinching myself over 2009. For me, Payton can coach a game or two in a season that I’d be sorry that we lost and shoulda won. But, there ain’t nuthin’ that Sean Payton has done with the Saints that has, “bothered me most.” The three best acquisitions that the Saints have ever made are: Micky Loomis, Sean Payton, and of course, Drew Brees.
