Makes no sense if there's any truth in Brees preferring white so he can see the WR's better. Regardless... Just win this game.
I see this repeated often but my memory is this was said about Brooks when he was here. That he thought it was easier to track receivers in the Dome.

I can't say it isn't also true for Brees, but the Saints have worn black at home quite often in the Brees era - and done some of their finest work in the black on black look.

My sauces say we are saving color rush for Cowboys/Rams game as both love their white jerseys as well. But sauces have been sour from time to time... official sauce warning.

Just this season, in a game projected to be a shoot-out by everybody with an opinion, the Saints wore black-on-black against the Rams.

If Brees really does have a preference for the white jerseys, would have to wonder why he isn't getting his way - especially in big games.

The article debunks this myth. According to it, the black on black is the second worst color combo we wear.

I never did like them...
Except I'm not talking about winning percentage - or implying any magical benefits to wearing them. Just pointing out they've been the uniform in some memorable wins, and offensive performances.

Notable games that come immediately to mind - the routing of the Cowboys in 2006 (in Dallas), the 40 first downs game (against Dallas), 45 points on the Rams this season.

I read a quote from an interview with Drew that he preferred THE ALL BLACKS for that same reason~! Unless we actually HEAR IT FROM HIS MOUTH, I’m doubting EVERYTHING I read if it’s not from a legit reporter who I know to be on top of the story. In any case, as for me? I LIKE The ALL BLACKS and except for Dallas this year, I believe we have a very high % of “W’s” wearing them than any other combo~! No link, just my memory which has grown dim as to specifics over the years, but somehow I do recall this since I’m also a big fan of The New Zealand Rugby Team of The ALL BLACKS and their amazing Haiku ritual performance to warn their opponents they are going to be in for a very long game as no one will be taking it easy for this match~!

Check them out. It’s a killer demonstration of ancient ancestral heritage they have reclaimed~! So, with all of that going for OUR ALL BLACK UNIs I really go for them even beyond just liking the “look”; I dig them in a spiritual way. Hey, whatever works to help us WIN and I’m down for it~!
