I have been debating about whether to even write this column about the New Orleans Saints for a few weeks. Some of you might think I am crazy for even bringing up negative remarks about the Saints, especially since they have “breezed” to a 6-3 record. They lead the South Division by one game over Atlanta and Carolina. Only Chicago has a better record in the NFC than the Saints after nine games.

Katrina comes to town and tears the Saints’ home down, and the team flees for Texas. Some longtime Saints fans sensed that could be the end of pro football in the city. Thirty-years of frustrated football and only one playoff win to cheer about. The Saints have not even been to the playoffs since 2000.
