Born and raised in South Louisiana, I grew up a New Orleans Saints fan. It is not easy being a Saints fan, but I support them no matter what because they represent my home state.
Going into the 2008 season, it was known that the Saints would struggle on defense. Also, there was several injuries that plaqued the Saints, but despite their weakness they beat Tampa Bay in week one.
After week three, New Orleans was 1-3 but a missed field goal cost them the game in week three in Denver.
Then the Saints came home for a three week home game stretch in which they won 2 of the three during this stretch. The only lose game from Minnesota in a Monday Night Football game in which a missed field goal cost them the game again.
Today, they could have made up for those close losses by beat the Carolina Panthers. This would have moved the Saints from last to first in the NFC South, but the Saints received their worse lose of the season dropping the game 30-7.
At 3-4, the Saints are last in the NFC South but are still only two games behind the Panthers who are first in the NFC South.
My point in this is that despite the weakness this Saints team has they had to ability to be 5-1 going into today’s game. If anything, the team would hope to at least be able to depend on their kicking game to help them get over the mistakes, but instead of being 6-2 as of today, the Saints are 3-4 and one can only think that this team has to have a voodoo spell on them.
Any Saints fan will tell you the history. The games that we have came back and lost, the years of disappointment, the threat of the organization leaving New Orleans, and the many other upsetting moments that has haunted this team.
If anything, the Saints do have the hottest cheerleaders in the NFL and for this achievement, I will rank my top five Saintsations.
