What do you all think was most entertaining game that the Saints lost?

Recently the Niners game in the 2019 season.

I also think the 2008 week 17 game vs the Panthers is up there. The 2008 Broncos loss is another good one.

To me, it was the 2006 loss at Pittsburgh.

I would probably select one of the 49er games when Mora was coaching. We would usually beat them up physically the whole game then at the end they would still find a way and kick a FG to win it. I can remember being so excited that we knocked their arse all over the dome. Only to realize that all that physicality didn’t win us the game so nobody cared.

It was wonderful to watch the Dome Patrol defense and awful to watch the offense. The only interesting thing about the offense was finding out if they would get any first downs before punting. Usually not.

at Pats in 2013 after Brees threw the TD hail Mary to Stills
That was the game where Junior Galette was horse collared around the neck by the Pats tackle on the last second TD pass from Brady. That should have been called back for offensive holding, but no call. That was the Saints' first loss of the season.

The SF playoff game in 2011. I was there at Candlestick and I never felt such highs and lows in such a short time. We were getting blown out with 5 turnovers on offense but we jut kept coming. Couldn't believe we came all the way back and basically won the game if it weren't for another playoff implosion.

I like the game because it was one of the best offenses of all time vs one of the best defenses we had seen in awhile. That 49er defense was loaded.
I will never get over this loss.

One of the most pitiful performances in a loss. Week 16 in 2001 vs the Redskins. Saints come out with a 10-0 lead and lose 10-40. In a 5 offensive play stretch, Brooks has 3 interceptions and 1 fumble.

They went on to lose 38-0 to close out the season.

Yes that Carl Smith Offense which was run, run, pass, punt! It was so easy for opponents defenses to game plan us because of how predictable we were. We had some killer battles with them. I’ll never forget when we went like 13-3 and lost the West because the whiners went 14-2. Man, that was our luck back then. I do remember knocking Steve Young out and that guy Bono came in. I could be wrong but I think that was the game that something burning came down from the roof or somewhere and landed on the field. The wild, Wild West.

I think that’s the year we only had to win one game of the final 3 to get in and they refused to put Delhomme in no matter how bad Brooks was doing. Brooks could throw a backward pass even though he was trying to throw it forward. I’m sorry if that’s not the year you meant but I think it was.

Nope. That was the following season in 2002. Started off 9-4. Swept the Bucs. Win out for the #1 seed. Ended up losing out.

We lost to 2 absolute dreadful teams in week 16 and 17. Bengals and Panthers.

2001 we were 7-5. Lost out.

And the last pass attempt to midfield was a miscommunication between he and Moore and it would have resulted in about a 17 yard gain and broke the record.
I remember that vividly. Was watching on a little TV set up in the attic at my in-laws house.

Never got over that season. We beat every team with a winning record that year and lost to the worst teams in the league... I kept saying that last week, if we can just get in, we have a shot at running the table. Just get in! We lose 6-10... 6-10! UGH...

This game. I was there also. That Saints team would have won it all. Crushing even more because it was the 49ers.
