I was a Saints fan long before I was a Drew Brees fan & long before they were even considered anything close to a good team. If you quit on the Saints simply because Brees leaves then you may as well go buy yourself a Buccaneer or Falcon jersey because that's where the fair weather fans belong.

I became a saints fan the same year Brees joined the team. So I honestly don’t know the answer to this question.

I do know it won’t hurt as bad if we lose in the playoffs, all I wanted was Brees to get the 2nd ring and respect he deserve, which made the losses that much more painful.

I cared about the Saints just as much when Billy Joe Hobert and Billy Joe Tolliver were the QB... I don't think that will change when Brees is gone.

I cared about the Saints since I saw them lose to the 49ers in 91.

P.S. I hated the 49ers since I saw them beat the Saints in 91😑

yeah winning definitely helps grow your fan base. brees embodied what it truly means to be a saint and that is something that he's going to take away. think about all the drama we had before him and how much he's done for this city regardless if he plays another down. that being said we start winning with someone else, it won't be the same but it will be nice just different then with db9 at center. the next guy got big shoes to fill. green bay got lucky to be able to transition from one great qb to another...

I think some don't know, or have forgotten, how crushing it is to endure season after season of heartbreakingly terrible football.
Look back at our 91-92 seasons. Made playoffs and things were looking great.....then the next 7 years before we had another winning season. What if I told you our next winning season will be in 2028 and 2 of those we'll only have 3 wins? It's emotionally draining to go through that. Haha
I think you have either forgotten or don't know how the people of the City of New Orleans have always felt about the Saints. It didn't take winning for that bond to exist. It was always there and will always be there unless some day they leave. I expect that some fans that chose the team and don't live here will leave, but this city will always be there for the Saints. It's in the culture and fabric of the city as much as Jazz, Funk, Creole food, and Mardi Gras.

My Kamara jersey arrived in the mail today. So yes, I will still care about the Saints after Brees retires. Black and Gold for life.

You're insane to even ask that question. What do you think we are, Patriot fans??? Delete thread

It’s easy for us “older” fans to forget that many saints fans have no clue what life was like before Brees. My 19 year old son has been spoiled rotten by Saints success. Lol! He has no idea how to handle struggle!

I will still watch every Saints game just as I have since I was about 6 years old. Well, when I was 6 and living in Oklahoma in the early 90s I couldn’t watch every game, but I’ve watched every game since my dad got us Sunday Ticket when it came out.

Will I care as much when I’m not watching a legend, when the expectation isn’t Super Bowl every year? it’s hard to say, so I don’t know. But I do know I’ll still care a whole ******* lot.
