In case Brett Favre needed any extra motivation entering his 20th NFL season, watching the New Orleans Saints raise a championship banner should provide it.

After the Saints eliminated Favre’s Minnesota Vikings in overtime of the NFC title game en route to their first Super Bowl victory, the 40-year-old quarterback has returned and hopes to spoil New Orleans’ party at the Superdome on Thursday night.

Quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints claimed the Lombardi Trophy with a 31-17 upset of Indianapolis, sealed when cornerback Tracy Porter intercepted Peyton Manning and ran 74 yards for a touchdown with 3:12 remaining.

Brees was named MVP of the game after throwing for 288 yards and two touchdowns, but he expects the Saints to face a different challenge in 2010.

“We haven’t been down this road before as defending champs, but the fact of the matter is we all know this is a new season and everybody has the same hopes and aspirations,” Brees said. “There are 32 teams that believe this can be their year. … We know that we are going to get everybody’s best shot. We know we have to put our best foot forward every time we step on the field.”

Favre returns to make his record 286th consecutive start after another offseason in which he contemplated retirement.

He said he didn’t expect to return when he walked off the Superdome turf following a 31-28 defeat in January when the Vikings fell painfully short of their first Super Bowl appearance in 33 years.

“Believe me, when I left New Orleans, a big part of me was — I don’t want to say done — but the fact that we lost that game, how hard it is,” Favre said last month.

Favre became a grandfather in April, but he’s coming off one of his best seasons, throwing 33 touchdowns and a career-low seven interceptions.

In the NFC championship, Minnesota outgained the Saints 475-257 and got three rushing touchdowns from Adrian Peterson, but the Vikings lost three fumbles and Favre threw two interceptions — including one to Porter in the final minute of regulation.

That was the last time Favre touched the ball, as New Orleans won the coin toss in overtime and got a 40-yard field goal from Garrett Hartley.

“It’s not like we were shut down offensively,” Favre said. “We went into a hostile environment and were extremely productive on offense but yet it proved costly (with) the turnovers. So do I think we’ll face the same style of defense this week? Sure.”

Favre suffered various injuries in the game, including a sprained ankle that required offseason surgery, and Vikings coach Brad Childress said he felt many of New Orleans’ hits on the veteran were late and dirty.

“I understand a quarterback’s going to get hit, people are going to get hit,” Childress said. “It’s football. I don’t have any illusions about that. What I hate to see are late hits or attempts to hurt anybody. I don’t think there’s a place for that in the game.”

Saints coach Sean Payton has defended his defense, which forced 39 turnovers in 2009 — second in the NFL to Green Bay.

“I think that we play with an attitude and a swagger and a confidence level that is within the rules and I like the way we play,” Payton said.

There will be one major void in that unit, with All-Pro safety Darren Sharper out for at least six games following offseason microfracture knee surgery. Sharper was tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions last year, helping the Saints go 13-3.

His substitute, second-year pro Malcolm Jenkins, expects to be targeted by Favre.

“I’ll just have to hold my own,” Jenkins said.

Jonathan Vilma’s status is less clear. The Saints’ leading tackler injured his groin during the preseason and missed the final game.

Minnesota will be without its top receiver as Sidney Rice recovers from hip surgery, but Percy Harvin is expected to play despite preseason problems with migraines.

Peterson remains the focal point of the Vikings’ attack after leading the NFL with 18 touchdowns and ranking third in scrimmage yards last year — a big reason Minnesota went 12-4 and claimed the NFC North crown.

Brees is back to anchor the Saints’ top-ranked offense, which led the league in total yards and touchdowns in 2009 and retained virtually all of its major weapons.

“He started out (with the Saints) at a super-high level and it’s hard to get better, but he finds some way to do it,” receiver Marques Colston said of Brees. “The thing he’s really done well is communicate to us what exactly he wants, and that’s what makes the offense click the way it does.”

New Orleans is going for its first win over the Vikings in the regular season since 2001. Minnesota has won the last four meetings, including three at the Superdome.

Each of the last 10 Super Bowl champions have opened its title defense with a victory.

Saints’ Inspiring Turnaround built From earth Up

Saints’ Inspiring Turnaround built From earth Up

Green Bay Packers Jerseys Onlineshop webeditor report:

Here is the 4-1-1 throughout the Saints reaching the 305 (the way NFL enthusiastic gamers explain this year’s extremely Bowl city, Miami, by its area code): it took a 9-1-1 cardiac-inducing interception by only one from the smallest men throughout the field. It necessary New Orleans Saints cornerback Tracy Porter to help keep his eye balls open, his middle hopeful, his have self-assurance in true.

See, Porter, a second-year player, missed 4 game titles this time period because of your knee injury. occasionally at any time you receive back, you are never all the way in which back. But Porter epitomizes the Saints’ “Who Dat” mentality. he’s respected by his teammates for his ball skills, quickness, calm in tense conditions and playmaking artistry. The Saints never necessary him or individuals characteristics additional than Sunday night.

The match was tied 28-28 plus the Vikings experienced been generating for just about any game-winning field goal. There experienced been 19 seconds still left when Porter crept in front of receiver Sidney Rice, picked away from a Brett Favre pass and came back it 26 yards. The perform began throughout the New Orleans 38. The Vikings experienced been certain they experienced been inching closer towards a game-winning field goal.

Porter’s pick pushed the match into overtime wherever the Saints would win it making a field goal of these own, a 31-28 victory within NFC championship match just before essentially the most enthusiasts (71,276) to actually observe a Saints match within Superdome. A victory that pushes the Saints into extremely Bowl XLIV.

The Saints experienced been in the Cover-2 zone defense using the duration of Porter’s pick. In it, Porter need to become a roamer, cost-free to feel, type and pick. He reads the quarterback in that defensive call. He look at Favre’s eye balls concentrating on Rice.

“I recognize that I could not permit a completion on that play,” Porter said. “If I had, the Vikings could well be going towards the extremely Bowl.”

He transformed history’s course, his teammates insisted.

The Vikings experienced lost five yards just before the perform because of having twelve men within huddle. Even with an incompletion as opposed to Porter’s pick, the Vikings would have experienced a fourth-down perform to try for just about any 1st down, field goal range plus a opportunity to win it.

As Porter’s teammate, cornerback Randall Gay, stated from the interception, Porter noticed it, thought it and made a play.

This is what the Saints have become. Coach Sean Payton arrived here 4 many years back plus the enthusiastic gamers noticed it, the maker of basketball he was preaching. They thought it when he stated this group could well be considered a quick-strike offense built near to quarterback Drew Brees, understanding that item by item the defense could well be built to match it. Payton and simple manager Mickey Loomis built a character-driven locker area with an aggressive, killer instinct.

This is why the Saints need to conquer Indianapolis in extremely Bowl XLIV. The Saints perform quicker than every other team, and they perform as refreshing complementary units.

Take Reggie Bush’s muff of your punt just just before halftime. The match was tied 14-14 when Bush turned the ball previously pointed out at the New Orleans ten with 1:13 still left within 2nd quarter. But Saints linebacker Scott Fujita recovered a fumble on the messy buy and sell among Favre and running back but again Adrian Peterson two performs and 17 seconds later. What appeared just like a game-altering mistake with the Saints’ special teams was cleaned up with the Saints’ defense. and also this kept happening using the Saints from only one facet from the group to another.

That Vikings’ turnover specify in movement a slew of them to can come within 2nd half. The Saints would force 4 additional Minnesota turnovers within 2nd half. Two other times within game, the Vikings fumbled but regained possession. its amazing which they experienced a shot to win this stage with that countless miscues.

Turnovers so plentiful? that is difficulty and buckling less than it. that is the difficulty that the Saints’ defense applied. its the way in which the Saints are built, to perform speedy but never neglect the extreme actual nature from the NFL game. You win the fight from the hits, you frequently win the game.

The Saints are running back but again Pierre Thomas soaring with the air, offering himself up, entire body and all, for just about any fourth-and-1 lunge of two yards throughout the Saints’ game-winning generate in overtime. The Saints would be the offense that answers, like Thomas do when he zipped with the Vikings’ defense on the 38-yard scoring display pass as if he experienced been Bush, to react to Minnesota’s first touchdown drive.

Fundamentalist Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints

Fundamentalist Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints

Today

The exact number of members of the FLDS Church is unknown due to the relatively closed nature of the organization; however, its population has been estimated at between 6,000 to 10,000 in the twin communities of Colorado City, Arizona and Hildale, Utah.

The historic location of the church was in the twin communities of Colorado City, Arizona and Hildale, Utah. The church also has a long-standing colony in Bountiful, British Columbia.

Since the purchase of land now called the Yearning for Zion Ranch 6 miles (9.7 km) northeast of Eldorado, Texas, there appears to be a shift in the headquarters of the church, along with a large exodus of the “most faithful” church members. Other newer church settlements are 15 miles (24 km) southwest of Pringle, South Dakota and 6 miles (9.7 km) north of Mancos, Colorado.

Members of the FLDS Church have owned machine shops that have sold airplane components to the United States government. From 1998 to 2007, the receipts of these airplane components totaled more than .7 million.

History

Origins

See also: Mormon fundamentalism

The residents in the area of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Arizona, have a long history of practicing plural marriage, dating to the mid-19th century. Brigham Young, then President of the LDS Church, once visited the area stating, “This will someday be the head and not the tail of the church.” The twin cities were once known as Short Creek, officially founded in 1913 as a ranching community.

The FLDS traces its claim to spiritual authority to accounts, starting with a statement published in 1912 by Lorin C. Woolley, of a purported 1886 divine revelation to thenDS Church President John Taylor. They see this 1886 revelation as precluding validity of the 1890 Manifesto against new plural marriages by church members, issued by Wilford Woodruff, whom the LDS Church recognizes as Taylor’s successor. After the formal abandonment of plural marriage by the LDS Church, many members around Short Creek and elsewhere continued, and even solemnized, plural marriages. In 1904, the LDS Church issued the Second Manifesto and eventually excommunicated those who continued to solemnize or enter into new plural marriages.

Short Creek soon became a gathering place for polygamist members of the LDS Church. In 1935, the LDS Church excommunicated the Mormon residents of Short Creek who refused to sign an oath renouncing polygamy. Following this event, John Y. Barlow began to lead a group of Mormon fundamentalists who were dedicated to preserving the practice of plural marriage.[citation needed] The location on the Utahrizona border was thought to be ideal for the group because it allowed them to avoid state raids by moving across the state line.

Some of the locally prominent men in Short Creek, after being excommunicated by the LDS Church, later became leaders of the Mormon fundamentalist movement, including Lorin C. Woolley, J. Leslie Broadbent, John Y. Barlow, Charles Zitting, Joseph White Musser, LeGrand Wooley, and Louis A. Kelsch. In 1932, these leaders created the organization known as the Council of Friends, a group of seven high priests that was said to be the governing priesthood body on Earth. The Council of Friends became the governing ecclesiastical body over the Mormon fundamentalists at Short Creek.

The early years of the movement were contentious and saw many differing interpretations and opinions among leaders as to how plural marriage should be practiced. These contentions eventually led to the subsequent schisms that created the multiple Mormon fundamentalist organizations that now exist, including the FLDS Church, the Apostolic United Brethren, and the Latter-day Church of Christ or Kingston group. It is commonly believed by all of these sects that the early leaders of the fundamentalist movement received revelations from God commanding that plural marriage should not cease.

FLDS splinter groups

In 1984, a schism formed within the FLDS Church just before the death of Leroy S. Johnson. A small group of FLDS took issue with the “one-man rule” doctrine that altered the leadership structure of the church and that was implemented fully when Rulon Jeffs assumed his position as sole leader of the organization. These followers took up residence just south of Colorado City, in Centennial Park, Arizona, calling themselves “The Work of Jesus Christ,” or “The Work” for short.

Also in 2002, after Warren Jeffs assumed leadership, Winston Blackmore, who had been serving in Canada as the Bishop of Bountiful for the FLDS Church, was excommunicated by Jeffs in an apparent power struggle. This led to a split within the community in Bountiful, British Columbia, with an estimated 700 FLDS members leaving the church to follow Blackmore.

Leaders

The FLDS Church has been led by a succession of prophets, who believe themselves to have been called by God to lead. The first leader of the FLDS Church was John Y. Barlow, who led the community of Short Creek until his death on December 29, 1949. He was succeeded by Joseph White Musser, who was the church’s leader during a government crackdown on polygamy known as the Short Creek raid, in 1953, in which all the FLDS Church members of Short Creek were arrested, including 236 children.

Musser led the community until a contentious appointment of Rulon Allred to a high position of authority in 1951 angered some members of the Short Creek community. Musser had appointed Allred to be his successor, but Allred was not accepted as his successor by the Short Creek community. This led to a schism, with many followers breaking off and joining Allred; this offshoot became known as the Apostolic United Brethren. The core group in the Short Creek area instead followed Charles Zitting as its leader.

Zitting died in 1954 and Leroy S. Johnson was chosen to lead the church in Short Creek. Johnson led the FLDS Church until his death in 1986. He was succeeded by Rulon Jeffs, who assumed the position of prophet, a title his predecessor refused to use. In Jeffs’ later years, his poor health led to his son Warren serving as leader of the church in his stead, and upon Rulon’s death in September 2002, Warren Jeffs became leader of the FLDS Church. However, immediately after the state of Utah convicted him of being an accomplice to rape, it was widely reported in the press that Warren Jeffs resigned his leadership of the FLDS Church, though the statement made by his attorneys only addresses Jeffs’ resignation from his fiduciary post as “President of the Corporation of the President of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Inc.”

Since no public statements have been made by officials of the church indicating a successor to Jeffs, it is not known who may be leading the FLDS Church, though it is quite probable that Warren Jeffs remains at the church’s helm.

Legal trouble and leadership struggles

The home of former FLDS leader Warren Jeffs in Colorado City

In 2003, the church received increased attention from the state of Utah when police officer Rodney Holm, a member of the church, was convicted of unlawful sexual conduct with a 16- or 17-year-old and one count of bigamy for his marriage to and impregnation of plural wife Ruth Stubbs. The conviction was the first legal action against a member of the FLDS Church since the Short Creek raid.

In November 2003, church member David Allred purchased “as a hunting retreat” the 1,371-acre (5.55 km2) Isaacs Ranch 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Eldorado, Texas, on Schleicher County Road 300 and sent 30 to 40 construction workers from Colorado Cityildale to begin work on the property. Improvements soon included three 3-story houses, each 8,000 to 10,000 square feet (930 m2), a concrete plant, and a plowed field. After seeing high-profile FLDS Church critic Flora Jessop on the ABC television program Primetime Live on March 4, 2004, concerned Eldorado residents contacted Jessop. She investigated, and on March 25, 2004, Jessop held a press conference in Eldorado confirming that the new neighbors were FLDS Church adherents. On May 18, 2004, Schleicher County Sheriff David Doran and his Chief Deputy visited Colorado City, and the FLDS Church officially acknowledged that the Schleicher County property would be a new base for the church. It has been reported in the media that the church has built a temple at the YFZ Ranch, which is supported by evidence, including aerial photographs of a large stone structure (approximately 88 feet (27 m) wide) in a state of relative completion. A local newspaper, the Eldorado Success, reported that the temple foundation was dedicated January 1, 2005 by Warren Jeffs.

On January 10, 2004, Dan Barlow (the mayor of Colorado City) and about 20 other men were excommunicated from the church and stripped of their wives and children (who would be reassigned to other men), and the right to live in the town. The same day two teenage girls reportedly fled the towns with the aid of activist Flora Jessop, who advocates plural wives’ escape from polygamy. The two girls, Fawn Broadbent and Fawn Holm, soon found themselves in a highly publicized dispute over their freedom and custody. After the allegations against their parents were proven false, Flora helped them flee state custody together on February 15, and they ended up in Salt Lake City at Fawn Holm’s brother Carl’s house.

In October 2004, Flora Jessop reported that David Allred purchased a 60-acre parcel of land near Mancos, Colorado, (midway between Cortez and Durango) about the same time he bought the Schleicher County property.[citation needed] Allred told authorities the parcel is to be used as a hunting retreat.[citation needed]

In July 2005, eight men of the church were indicted for sexual contact with minors.[citation needed] All of them turned themselves in to police in Kingman, Arizona, within days.[citation needed]

On July 29, 2005, Brent Jeffs filed suit accusing three of his uncles, including Warren Jeffs, of sexually assaulting him when he was a child. The suit also named the FLDS Church as a defendant. On August 10, former FLDS Church member Shem Fischer, Dan Fischer’s brother, added the church and Warren Jeffs as defendants to a 2002 lawsuit claiming he was illegally fired because he no longer adhered to the faith. Fischer, who was a salesman for a wooden cabinetry business in Hildale, claimed church officials interfered with his relationship with his employer and blacklisted him. The claim against the company was thrown out because he was not fired from his job, but quit instead.[citation needed]

In July 2005, six young adult lost boys who claimed they were cast out of their homes on the Utahrizona border to reduce competition for wives, filed suit against the FLDS Church. “The [boys] have been excommunicated pursuant to that policy and practice and have been cut off from family, friends, benefits, business and employment relationships, and purportedly condemned to eternal damnation,” their suit says. “They have become ‘lost boys’ in the world outside the FLDS community.”[citation needed]

On May 7, 2006, the FBI named Warren Jeffs to its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

On August 28, 2006, Warren Jeffs was captured on Interstate 15 just north of Las Vegas, Nevada, after a routine traffic stop. Jeffs was tried in St. George, Utah, and a jury found him guilty of two counts of being an accomplice to rape.

The mayor of Colorado City, Terrill C. Johnson, was arrested on May 26, 2006, for eight fraudulent vehicle registration charges for registering his vehicles in a different state than he lived, which is a felony. He was booked in to Purgatory Correctional Facility in Hurricane, Utah, and was released after paying the ,000 bail in cash.

Short Creek raid

Main article: Short Creek raid

In the morning of July 26, 1953, 102 Arizona state police officers and National Guard soldiers invaded the fundamentalist Mormon community of Short Creek, Arizona. They arrested the entire populace, including 236 children. Of those 236 children, 150 were not allowed to return to their parents for more than two years. Other parents never regained custody of their children.

The Short Creek raid was the largest mass arrest of polygamists in American history, and it received a great deal of press coverage. After the raid, polygamists continued to live there; in 1960, Short Creek was renamed Colorado City.

April 2008 raid

Main article: YFZ Ranch

In April, 2008, Texas Child Protective Services, acting on what would later turn out to be a questionable tip from a person alleging systematic child abuse on the FLDS Church’s Texas compound, took custody of all 439 children under age 18 from the church’s YFZ Ranch, assisted by a large force of Texas Rangers who took control of the compound from April 3 to April 10. The raid generated intense press coverage in the U.S., especially in the Southwest, and also garnered international attention. On May 29, the Texas Supreme Court affirmed an appeals court ruling that Texas CPS was not justified in removing every child from the ranch and ordered the children to be returned to their parents.

The tip that prompted the raid is now believed to be a false report, instigated by Rozita Swinton. Rozita Swinton was later to face criminal charges based upon this false report and is believed to have filed similar false reports in the past.

Birth defects

The Colorado City/Hildale area has the world’s highest incidence of fumarase deficiency, an extremely rare genetic condition. Geneticists attribute this to the prevalence of cousin marriage between descendants of two of the town’s founders, Joseph Smith Jessop and John Yeates Barlow. It causes encephalopathy, severe mental retardation, unusual facial features, brain malformation, and epileptic seizures.

Distinctive doctrines

Plural marriage and placement marriage

See also: Exchange of women

The FLDS Church teaches the doctrine of plural marriage, which states that a man having multiple wives is ordained by God; the doctrine requires it in order for a man to receive the highest form of salvation. It is generally believed in the church that a man should have a minimum of three wives to fulfill this requirement. Connected with this doctrine is patriarchal doctrine, the belief that wives are required to be subordinate to their husbands.

The church currently practices placement marriage, whereby a young woman of marriageable age is assigned a husband by revelation from God to the leader of the church, who is regarded as a prophet. The prophet elects to take and give wives to and from men according to their worthiness. This is also called the law of placing.

Dress

In general, women do not cut their hair short or wear makeup, pants, or any skirt above the knees. Men wear plain clothing, usually a long-sleeved collared shirt and full-length pants. Men and women are forbidden to have any tattoos or body piercings. Women and girls usually wear monochromatic homemade long-sleeved “prairie dresses,” with hems between ankle and mid-calf, along with long stockings or trousers underneath, usually keeping their hair coiffed.

Property ownership

The land and houses occupied by the FLDS Church on the Utah/Arizona border are owned by the United Effort Plan (UEP), which was once a subsidiary organization of the church. The UEP also owns most of the property of the businesses that are controlled by FLDS Church members in that area. The church views this “United Order” as a means of living the traditional Latter Day Saint doctrine of the “Law of Consecration.” The Attorney General of Utah filed a lawsuit and seized the holdings of the UEP for the current residents of Colorado City and Hildale. The Attorney General is seeking to distribute the assets of the UEP to the FLDS Church members and ex-members who contributed to the UEP. In 2005, a court order froze the UEP pending a resolution of the lawsuit. At the time of the court order, the UEP was worth 0 million.

Home schooling

In 2000, the Colorado City Unified School District had more than 1200 students. When Jeffs ordered FLDS Church members to pull their children out of public schools, the number declined to around 250.

Temple worship

The FLDS Church is the sixth Latter Day Saint denomination to have built a temple.

Criticisms of the church

See also: Criticism of Mormonism and Criticism of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Plural marriage

A view of the FLDS ranch in Eldorado, Texas

At the time of his death, church leader Rulon Jeffs was confirmed to have married 22 women and fathered more than 60 children. Current estimates state that Warren Jeffs may have upwards of 60 wives. As the type of polygamy practiced is polygyny, critics of this lifestyle claim that its practice inevitably leads to bride shortages and likely to child marriages, incest, and child abuse.

Critics assert that members of the church are violating laws when they participate in polygamy. Critics claim that incest and sexual abuse of children are prevalent among church members.

Lost Boys

Main article: Lost boys (polygamy)

It has been reported by former members that the FLDS Church has excommunicated more than 400 teenage boys for offenses such as dating or listening to rock music. Antagonistic former members claim that the real reason for these excommunications is that there are not enough women for each male to receive three or more wives. Six young adult men, ages 18 to 22, filed a conspiracy lawsuit against Jeffs and Sam Barlow, a former Mohave County deputy sheriff and close associate of Jeffs, for a “systematic excommunication” of young men to reduce competition for wives.

Racism

In its Spring 2005 “Intelligence Report,” the Southern Poverty Law Center named the FLDS Church to its “hate group” listing because of the church’s teachings on race, which include a fierce condemnation of interracial relationships. Warren Jeffs has said, “the black race is the people through which the devil has always been able to bring evil unto the earth.”

Blood atonement

Former FLDS Church member Robert Richter reported to the Phoenix New Times that Warren Jeffs has repeatedly alluded to the 19th-century teaching of “blood atonement” in church sermons. Under the doctrine of blood atonement, certain serious sins, such as murder, can only be atoned for by the sinner’s death.

New Orleans Saints

History

Main article: History of the New Orleans Saints

Early history

The brainchild of local sports entrepreneur Dave Dixon, who also founded the Louisiana Superdome and the USFL, the Saints were actually secretly born in a backroom deal brought about by Congressman Hale Boggs, Senator Russell Long and NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle. The NFL needed congressional approval of the proposed AFL-NFL merger. Dixon and a local civic group had been seeking a NFL franchise for over 5 years, and had hosted record crowds to NFL exhibition games. To seal the merger, Rozelle arrived in New Orleans within a week, and announced on November 1, 1966 that the NFL officially had awarded the city of New Orleans an NFL franchise. Named for the great jazz song most identified with New Orleans “When the Saints Go Marching In,” the franchise was announced in a great coincidence on November 1st, which is the Catholic All Saints’ Day. Boggs’ Congressional committee in turn quickly approved the NFL merger. John W. Mecom, Jr., a young oilman from Houston, became the team’s first majority stockholder. The team’s colors, black and gold, symbolized both Mecom’s and New Orleans’ strong ties to the oil (“black gold”) industry.[citation needed] Trumpeter Al Hirt was part owner of the team, and his rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In” was made the official fight song.

That first season started with a 94 yard opening kickoff return for a touchdown by John Gilliam, but the Saints lost that game 2713 to the Los Angeles Rams at Tulane Stadium. Their first season record was 311, which set an NFL record for most wins by an expansion team. However, they could not manage to finish as high as second in their division until 1979. That 1979 team and the 1983 team were the only ones to even finish at .500 until 1987.

One of the franchise’s shining moments came on November 8, 1970, when Tom Dempsey kicked an NFL record-breaking 63-yard field goal to defeat the Detroit Lions by a score of 1917 in the final seconds of the game. This record, although equaled 29 years later by Jason Elam of the Denver Broncos, has yet to be broken.

In 1980, the Saints lost their first 14 games, prompting local sportscaster Bernard “Buddy D” Diliberto to advise Saints supporters to wear paper bags over their heads at the team’s home games; many bags rendered the club’s name as the “‘Aints” rather than the “Saints.” The practice of wearing a bag over one’s head then spread rapidly, first to fans of other poorly performing teams within the NFL, and ultimately to those of other American team sports, and has become a firmly established custom throughout the United States.

Mora era

Current Saints owner Tom Benson acquired the franchise in 1985, and hired Jim Finks as general manager and Jim Mora as head coach. That combination provided the Saints with their first-ever winning record and playoff appearance, going 123 in 1987, which had one fewer game than normal due to a players’ strike. Another playoff berth would follow in 1990, and the club’s first division title came in 1991. During Mora’s tenure the Saints made the playoffs four times, with teams marked by strong defenses led by the “Dome Patrol” linebacking corps, but they were never able to win a playoff game. Mora coached the Saints until the middle of the 1996 season, when he stepped down halfway through a 313 season.

Ditka era

After the end of the 1996 season, ironically as Diliberto had suggested before Mora’s resignation, former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka was hired to replace Mora. Although this initially generated a lot of excitement among Saints fans, Ditka’s tenure ended up being a failure. The Saints went 610 in their first two seasons under Ditka (1997 and 1998). During the 1999 NFL Draft, Ditka traded all of his picks for that season, as well as the first-round and third-round picks for the following season, to the Washington Redskins in order to draft University of Texas Heisman Trophy running back Ricky Williams in the first round. Ditka and Williams had a mock wedding picture taken to commemorate the occasion. However, Ditka, most of his coaching staff, and general manager Bill Kuharich were fired at the end of the 1999 season due to the club’s 313 record.

Haslett era

Jim Haslett held the post from 2000 to 2005. In his first year, he took the team to the playoffs but lost to the Minnesota Vikings a week after beating the St. Louis Rams for the team’s first ever playoff win. After winning the 2000 NFL Executive of the Year Award, General Manager Randy Mueller was fired between the 2001 and 2002 seasons without explanation by Benson. The Saints failed to make the playoffs in 2001 and 2002, although in the latter year they had the distinction of beating the eventual Super Bowl XXXVII champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in both of their regular season meetings, only the second team to do so in NFL history.

In 2003, the Saints again missed the playoffs after finishing 88. The 2004 season started poorly for the Saints, as they went 24 through their first six games and 48 through their first twelve games. At that point Haslett’s job appeared to be in jeopardy; however, he managed to win the three straight games leading up to the season finale, leaving the Saints in playoff contention in the final week of the season. In week 17, the Saints defeated division rivals Carolina; however, the Saints needed other results to break their way and when the St. Louis Rams beat the New York Jets the Saints were eliminated despite having beaten the Rams, who finished with the same record. The Rams, Saints, and Vikings all were 88, with the Rams having a 75 conference record, Saints 66, and the Vikings 57. The Rams received the #1 wild-card due to having the best conference record out of the 3, followed by the Vikings due to the 3316 loss handed to the Saints in Week 3. Haslett was fired after the 2005 season, in which the Saints finished 313 and did not play one regular season contest in New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. On January 17, 2006, the Saints hired Sean Payton as their new head coach.

Effect of Hurricane Katrina

Main article: Effect of Hurricane Katrina on the New Orleans Saints

Due to the damage Hurricane Katrina caused to the Superdome and the New Orleans area, the Saints’ scheduled 2005 home opener against the New York Giants was moved to Giants Stadium. The remainder of their 2005 home games were split between the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, and LSU’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Payton era

2006: Homecoming and postseason

For detailed information on the team’s 2006 season, see 2006 New Orleans Saints season.

On March 23, the Saints announced that the team’s two 2006 preseason games were to be played at Shreveport, Louisiana and Jackson, Mississippi.

After a 5 million renovation of the historic stadium, on April 6 the Saints released their 2006 schedule, with all home games scheduled to be played at the Superdome. On September 19, Saints owner Tom Benson announced that the team had sold out the Louisiana Superdome for the entire season with season tickets alone (70,001 seats), a first in franchise history.[citation needed]

The September 25, 2006 home opener, the first home game in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, was won by the Saints 233 against the Atlanta Falcons, who were undefeated in the 2006 season at that time. The attendance for the game was a sellout crowd of 70,003. Meanwhile, the broadcast of the game was ESPN’s highest-ever rated program to date, with an 11.8 rating, and viewership by 10,850,000 homes. It was the most-watched program for the night, broadcast or cable, and was the second-highest rated cable program of all time at the time. Green Day and U2 performed “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “The Saints Are Coming” , respectively, before the game. The game received a 2007 ESPY award for “Best Moment in Sports.”

On December 17, 2006, the Saints clinched their third division title and their first NFC South title in franchise history. For the first time in Saints’ history, they clinched their NFC South title on their home field. Sean Payton became the second consecutive Saints coach to win a division title in his first season. After a loss by the Dallas Cowboys to the Philadelphia Eagles on Christmas Day 2006, the Saints clinched a first-round playoff bye for the first time in franchise history.

After the first-round bye, the Saints beat the Philadelphia Eagles 2724 in the Superdome in the 2006 Divisional Playoffs. No team had ever had such a poor record in the prior year (313) and then gone on to a league or conference championship game since the 1999 St. Louis Rams who advanced to win their first Super Bowl after being 412 the season before. Since the Saints’ only previous playoff win was in the wild card round, this was the farthest the Saints had ever advanced at the time. The victory was only the second playoff win in team history.

The season ended on January 21, 2007 when the Saints lost 3914 to the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship game.

2007

Main article: 2007 New Orleans Saints season

The Saints announced that for the second year in a row, the Louisiana Superdome had sold out every ticket for the season. Additionally, all luxury boxes had been sold out for the season.[citation needed] Both of these statistics are particularly surprising given that the city-proper has about 300,000 people or 150,000 fewer people than July 2005 population data (though the metro area still accounts for 1.2 million people).[citation needed].

The first game of the season was against the defending Super Bowl XLI champion Indianapolis Colts. The Saints lost this game, 4110, and lost their next three games. In one of these three games, against the Tennessee Titans, the Saints lost running back Deuce McAllister for the season with his second career (second time in three seasons) ACL tear. After winning their first game, against the Seattle Seahawks, two weeks later, the team went on a four-game winning streak to bring their record to an even 44. After reaching 77, the Saints lost their final two games to finish 79.

2009

Main article: 2009 New Orleans Saints season

The 2009 season was the team’s most successful season, which culminated in the franchise’s first league championship win against the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. After becoming 130 with their win over the Atlanta Falcons, it marked the Saints’ best start to a season in its franchise history. The result clinched an NFC playoff berth, a bye in the first round of the playoffs. By winning their first 13 games, the Saints also set the record for the longest undefeated season opening (130) by an NFC team since the AFLFL merger, eclipsing the previous record (120) held by the 1985 Chicago Bears. The team advanced to the 2009 NFC Championship game where they defeated the Minnesota Vikings 3128 in overtime to win their first Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. Television ratings for Super Bowl 44 were the highest for any TV program, sports or otherwise, in history. Since the win, two media writers have referred to the Saints as “America’s Team”, as their successful bid to win the Super Bowl was seen by many to represent the city’s resurgence after the devastating Hurricane Katrina.

Logos and uniforms

Logo (2000resent)

New Orleans Saints uniform combination

New Orleans Saints alternate uniform: 2002 season

Except for minor modifications, the Saints’ logo and uniforms have basically remained the same since the club debuted in 1967. The team’s logo is a fleur-de-lis (a symbol of the City of New Orleans and of France’s Bourbon monarchy), while its uniform design consists of gold helmets, gold pants, and either black or white jerseys. Minor changes to the uniform stripes and trim have been made throughout the years. The team wore black helmets during the 1969 preseason, but NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle barred the Saints from using the helmets during the regular season, since owner John Mecom, Jr. did not notify the league office of the change.

The Saints predominantly wore white at home when the club played at Tulane Stadium from 1967 through 1974 (except in 1969 and 1970), forcing opponents to wear dark colors in the subtropical climate of New Orleans. When the surface at Tulane Stadium switched from natural grass to AstroTurf in 1971, field temperatures became hotter still. In Archie Manning’s first game, in the 1971 season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, temperatures on the field reached as high as 130 F (54 C). The heavily favored Rams wilted in the stifling heat, and the Saints claimed their first-ever victory over their NFC West rivals, 2420, on Manning’s 1-yard quarterback sneak on the last play of the game.

The Saints switched to white pants in 1975, coinciding with the team’s move from Tulane Stadium to the Superdome. One year later, they started to wear black pants with their white jerseys, a move influenced by coach Hank Stram, who introduced red pants to the Kansas City Chiefs’ uniforms in 1968. In an October 3, 1976 home game against the Houston Oilers, Hank Stram used the Saints’ road uniforms, the white jerseys and black pants. The Saints lost that game 3126. During the 198182 seasons (Bum Phillips’ first two seasons as coach), the team wore white jerseys with black pants at home, but reverted back to the black jerseys and white pants for 1983. They reverted back to wearing gold pants with both their black and white jerseys in 1986 under new coach Jim E. Mora. From 1986 through 1995, the sleeves of the jerseys and sides of the pants featured a logo with a fleur-de-lis inside an outline of the state of Louisiana. The logo replaced the striping pattern that had been on the uniforms since the team’s inception; save for color variations, the striping pattern was similar to that used by the Washington Redskins (until 1979), Green Bay Packers (until 1997), and Cleveland Browns (still in use as of 2007[update]), which is likely why the change was made. That logo was removed in 1996 and replaced with a fleur-de-lis on both the sleeves and sides of the pants.

From 1996 through 1998, the Saints returned to gold numbers on both the white and black jerseys, but complaints about the numbers on the white jerseys being too difficult to read forced the numbers on the white jerseys to be changed to black in 1999. The Saints wore black pants with a wide gold stripe with their white jerseys in 1999, but following a 313 season and the dismissal of coach Mike Ditka, the black pants were mothballed by new coach Jim Haslett.

2000s

In 2000, the Saints won their first playoff game as they hosted the St. Louis Rams and after having a better road record than home record, they wore their white jerseys, helping them get a 3128 win over the defending champion Rams. The defining play of the game came with the Saints clinging to a three-point lead with minutes to play. The Saints punted to the Rams’ Az-Zahir Hakim (who would play one season for the Saints in 2005), who fumbled the punt deep in Rams’ territory. Brian Milne recovered for the Saints, who then ran out the clock to preserve the victory.

In 2001, they wore their white jerseys in the first six home games. During that same year, they primarily wore black pants with both their white and black jerseys. They became the first NFL team to wear all-black uniforms in a week 5 road game against the Carolina Panthers, and again in weeks 16 and 17 in home games against the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers.

In 2002, the Saints wore black pants with their white jerseys (except for the final road game, a 2013 loss in Cincinnati when they went back to the gold pants), and gold pants with their black jerseys, a gold alternate jersey, and a 1967-style throwback uniform. But one season later, they stopped using the alternates and again reverted back to wearing gold pants with both their black and white jerseys.

The team introduced a gold alternate jersey (worn with the black pants) during a December 15, 2002 game versus the Minnesota Vikings, a 3231 loss, but have never worn them since then. Because of the metallic gold’s bright color, the gold jerseys were considered the “light” jersey in the game, so the Vikings wore their purple home jerseys as the “dark” colored team. One team must wear “dark” and one team must wear “light”, the only exception being if both teams are wearing throwback uniforms, such as Thanksgiving Classic games. Today only the New England Patriots have a “light” jersey (their alternate, a bright metallic silver) that isn’t white in which the other team would wear their colored, or “dark” jerseys against them since the third jersey rule was implemented in the NFL in 2002.

The Saints also introduced a 1967-style throwback uniform in a 2320 win in week 13 (December 1) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This also was never worn again but re-introduction of the jerseys in stores suggests they may make a comeback as the Saints’ alternate uniform.

In 2006, to honor their return to Louisiana, the Saints wore a patch on their uniforms with an outline of the State of Louisiana with a fleur-de-lis superimposed, similar to the logo from the 1980s.

The Saints originally planned to wear white jerseys at home for the 2006 season, but during the season, the players voted to wear the black jerseys at home after the second home game. Since the team had informed the NFL office that they planned to wear white jerseys at home, each of the Saints’ remaining home opponents would have to agree to New Orleans’ request. The Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cincinnati Bengals did not agree to the switch, forcing the Saints to wear white jerseys for that game.

Starting in week 13 of the 2006 season, the Saints wore white jerseys with black pants and in a Week 16 game in The Meadowlands against the New York Giants (a 307 Saints win), the Saints wore the black pants with their road white jerseys. The Saints later stuck with that combo in the NFC Championship in Chicago.

The Saints wore white jerseys for their first four home games of 2008. Three of the four games the white jerseys with black pants combination were worn at home, while the white jerseys with gold pants combination were worn for the first of those four games. The Saints chose to wear the all-black combination for the October 26 game at Wembley Stadium in London vs. the San Diego Chargers, in which New Orleans was the designated home team. They also wore black jerseys with black pants for the rest of their home games at the Superdome following the game at London.

The Saints wore their white jerseys at home for the first three home games of 2009. All with the white jerseys and gold pants combination. They have worn the all-black combo the last two home games. For its run through the 2009 playoffs, the team wore the gold pants.

New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame

The Saints Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization created by and for fans of the team to protect, preserve, promote and present the history of the franchise. The Saints Hall of Fame is located at 415 Williams Boulevard in the Rivertown section of Kenner. Open from 9 am-5 pm Tuesday through Saturday, the Hall of Fame features exhibits and memorabilia covering the entire history of the Saints from their formation through the current season. Due to building damage received during Hurricane Katrina the Hall of Fame is temporarily located at Gate B in the New Orleans Superdome and can be visited for free at every Saints home game. Fans can view videotapes on Saints history and the Saints Hall of Famers as well participate in interactive exhibits throughout the Hall. The facility, which originally opened on July 16, 1988, was expanded to twice its’ original size in January 2004. Busts and paintings of each of the inductees along with their career highlights are one of the focal points of the museum, which is dedicated to preserving the history of the Saints franchise. New Orleans and Green Bay are the only two NFL franchises with a team Hall of Fame facility.

Match Full Information and sehedule start and Preview:

Considering they followed up both of their championships in the past five years by missing the playoffs, the Pittsburgh Steelers are no strangers to the supposed Super Bowl hangover.The New Orleans Saints might be the latest team to feel its effects.Turnovers have plagued Drew Brees and the Saints’ suddenly stalled offense, a slump that could be tough to shake Sunday night against the visiting Steelers in a showdown of the past two Super Bowl champions.Pittsburgh (5-1) finished 8-8 in 2006, a season after winning Super Bowl XL, and didn’t make the playoffs again the year after its victory in Super Bowl XLIII.The Steelers again look capable of a return to championship form, but the Saints (4-3) are the latest example of a title team to struggle the following season. New Orleans has committed 14 turnovers in its last five games, and lost for the third time in that stretch Sunday against Cleveland as Brees was intercepted four times in a 30-17 defeat at the Superdome.

“We’re all in the midst of trying to put our finger on what exactly is going on,” Brees said after throwing his 10th pick in the five-game stretch — one fewer than he had last season. “We know the type of team we have. We know the type of work ethic we have. The effort is there. Guys want to win. Guys want to be great.”
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who suffered through the worst season of his career after his first Super Bowl title, can relate to the Saints’ struggles.”You’re going to get everybody’s best shot,” said Roethlisberger, who’s thrown five TDs and posted a 122.4 passer rating since returning from his four-game suspension. “A lot of the hard part about it is your off time is so short. … There’s a lot of expectations on you. You kind of put the pressure on yourself just as much as anyone else does.”

The Steelers have the NFL’s top scoring defense at 13.7 points per game and second-best turnover ratio at plus-eight, but may have been more fortunate than anything last week in Miami.Down 22-20 late in the fourth quarter, Roethlisberger fumbled as he neared the goal line on a quarterback draw. Though the head linesman signaled a touchdown, a replay review overturned the call — yet the Steelers maintained position since the officials couldn’t determine who recovered the ball.Jeff Reed booted an 18-yard field goal and Pittsburgh left with a 23-22 win.The victory may have been costly, though. End Aaron Smith, the most significant cog up front in the Steelers’ 3-4 defense, tore his left triceps in the first half.

Smith is likely out until at least late December, if not for the season. It’s the third significant injury for Smith in four years, and a look at the team with and without him speaks volumes. In the last 15 games Smith has missed — postseason included — the Steelers are 7-8 and have allowed averages of 22.5 points and 114.1 rushing yards.With him, they’re 23-7, yielding one fewer touchdown per game and 71.4 yards on the ground.
“There are no excuses,” Tomlin said. “Do I expect the guys that take his place to play like Aaron? Or to make similar plays? Maybe not, but they’d better be above the line.”Ziggy Hood will replace Smith on a defense that could also be without end Brett Keisel and linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who are nursing hamstring injuries.

Those potential absences would give the pass-happy Saints a good opportunity to gain some yards on the ground, but Reggie Bush (leg) and Pierre Thomas (ankle) missed practice Friday and are listed as out. Without them, Brees will likely attack a Pittsburgh defense that has yielded 273.5 passing yards over the past two weeks.Roethlisberger, on the other hand, might have his hands full with a Saints pass defense that’s third in the league at 179.7 yards allowed per game.Yet New Orleans has only one interception in its past five games, a number it hopes to see rise in its second game since safety Darren Sharper’s return. Sharper tied for the NFL lead with nine picks last season, three of which he brought back for touchdowns.The Steelers haven’t visited New Orleans since a 32-29 loss in 2002. Brees passed for 398 yards when the teams met at Heinz Field on Nov. 12, 2006, but Roethlisberger threw three TDs in Pittsburgh’s 38-31 win.
