With the NFL season at a close, I took a look at what made 2011 so successful in the Big Easy. There were many moments and decisions that defined this season for the Saints, but I have five in particular that really stood out. What made this year's team better than last year? It was a combination of a front office not afraid to spend, emerging young talents and, oh yea, having No. 9 on your side doesn't hurt! ( In Breesus we trust.) Maybe remembering these moments will ease the pain of the loss in San Fran.
I also take a look into my crystal ball, and see what Who Dat Nation can expect next season.
