Rewatched the game after seeing this post. If that game was played today... saints defense would have been called for 15 penalties for 150+ yards (they had 9 penalties for 88 yards in the game). I doubt today's NFL will allow the kind of hits the saints D put on Favre.
Vikings turnovers helped the saints stay in the game (5 TO vs 1 for saints). It is amazing the amount of penetration the vikings defense was able to get on the saints O-line. Their defense caused Brees to have a below average game. In terms of the game quality and intensity, this game was the real superbowl.

This here was the moment for me. Win or lose to finally be in that number…. I cried here. The win was just lagniappe for me. It was the moment of exhalation. The kick though…


Yep. I was at that game and was more emotional and excited than when they won the Superbowl. The fact that they finally made it and got that monkey off their back...was all I needed. The Superbowl was icing on the cake.

Payton: "I want you to aim for that fleur-de-forking-lis up there."

legendary.
The best was when he shanked the kick against the Bucs. Payton said “Quit freaking sulking! Grow some nuts!”

Hungry, fired up Payton was the best Payton. 2009 was filled with funny Sean rages.
