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…
Amen.

No other Saint moment was more important emotion-wise than that kick!

The huge emotional release of "Yes!! Finally." (Having followed the Saints since their inception.)

(I'm probably misremembering, but I felt the SB victory was gonna be a foregone conclusion...)

Went to the Super Bowl and it wasn’t the feeling I had when that ball sailed through the uprights. I was drained and felt like I actually played in that game.

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.

It was a different sport before c. 2011-12. Take a look at the Ravens' Super Bowl run from earlier that decade with Siragusa (RIP) lifting and body slamming QBs (twice) and seemingly intentionally driving his substantial body weight onto their throwing shoulders.

Gotta agree. The overcorrection on head injuries has altered the game-watching experience too much for me. Still love my Saints, but don’t watch the rest of the league much.

That game was epic. When he made the kick our house melted down. We were screaming, running around, furniture was knocked over and I took out the dining room chandelier on my way running outside. Always freaks me out on the replays when you hear CSP tell Hartley “ you just make your kick son, here’s why, you deserve to be here!” You see Hartley walking back out and I’m like OMG no pressure here 😎
