Winning a Super Bowl makes a lot of things possible.
Here’s an example: Just last year, it probably would have been impossible to write a “Saints’ Top 10 Wins” column. The problem being, you’d have a very tough time trying to come up with 10 really quality wins.
But that’s no problem anymore.
Quick Saints history lesson:
It took the New Orleans franchise 20 years to finish a single season with a winning record.
It took 13 more years for the Saints to win a single playoff game.
And it took the Saints, one of professional sports’ longest-suffering franchises, 43 long seasons to secure a Super Bowl victory.
But ask anybody in New Orleans these days, and they’ll tell you it's all been worth the wait. I've compiled a list of the Saints' 10 greatest wins in franchise history. Today, I present to you Nos. 10 through 6. This upcoming Wednesday, I will reveal Nos. 5 through 1.
And please know, not all 10 of these victories occurred in this just-completed 2009 campaign. Enjoy this countdown, Saints fans. Your time has come.
