Super Saints Indeed

The NFL’s feel good story of the year had a sweet ending tonight with the Saints winning the 1st Lombardi Trophy in team history.  This has been a special team all season long who fought hard till the very end even when many, including myself, began to lose faith.  The Saints never lost faith in themselves and their special bond, one that can only exist when a team is made up of written off and undrafted players like the Saints, is what kept this team focused instead of falling apart.  Leading the way was head coach Sean Payton and his brass set that set a tone never seen before in the Superbowl.  Then there’s the magnificent Drew Brees.  Brees was simply brilliant on the game’s biggest stage and joined the Elite QB Club with a MVP performance.  Football though is a team sport and the defense was explosive all postseason long.  The defense lambasted three future Hall of Fame quarterbacks this postseason:  Kurt Warner, Brett Favre and regular season MVP Peyton Manning.  The Saints had some pretty nasty labels over the years but Superbowls have a way of changing perception.  Now there is only one way to see the New Orleans Saints and that is as World Champions.  Who Dat say gonna beat ‘dem Saints?  Nobody;  their destiny is now fulfilled.  Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints and the Who Dat Nation.  Party up and party hard.  You deserve it.
