So ingrained into the fabric of the Crescent City, it's often posited that no team is more valuable to its city than the New Orleans Saints. Following the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it was the Saints return to NFL action that helped galvanize New Orleans' rebuilding efforts.
Building a Champion
Entering the NFL in 1967, the New Orleans Saints, named for the jazz standard closely associated with the city, “When the Saints Go Marchin' In, were a perennial also-ran for the first 20 years of their existence. In 1985, one of new owner Tom Benson's first moves was to bring in Jim Mora, a decision that led to the team's first ever playoff appearance in 1987 first division title in 1991.
In 2006, following the hurricane and a massive rebuild on the famed Superdome, the New Orleans Saints brought together a franchise-altering Coach-QB combination in Sean Payton and Drew Brees. In their first season together this dynamic duo clinched a division title and the first opening-round bye in franchise history. After taking out the Philadelphia Eagles, the Saints lost to the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship Game.
In 2009, with an season-long offensive assault choreographed by Payton and executed by Brees and a coterie of talented receivers and backs, the New Orleans Saints finally broke through and won the franchise's first ever Super Bowl by defeating the favored Indianapolis Colts. For his achievements on and off the field, Drew Brees was named SI's Sportsman of the Year.
