the new orleans saints have never won a road playoff game in nfl history

Recommended Posts

That would mean we would have at least 3 more consecutive non-shitty seasons, maybe four if we somehow run the table this year.. Can your fragile psyche truly handle even more sustained success for the Saints? Think this one through, man.

um, no.  saints started their "sustained" post season success with 4 consecutive losses in the post season.   they didn't even win a playoff game until the year 2000.

 

the only thing the stains have suSTAINed is a history and heritage of being perennial basement dwellers.  you'd know that if you had been a fan of them before 2009

Maybe someday you guys will also tick off some of the lesser checkboxes you've skipped on the way to greatness. Like "consecutive winning seasons" for example. Then again maybe that backs you unfairly in the corner with such a small sample size to work with. Maybe we can revisit this discussion 30 years later, I'm sure it'll be raining championships sometime between then and (any day) now.

Guess we should just use that Saints roadmap for consistently....consistently being the nfl laughing stock for the first 30 years of their existence.

First 20, you mean. They've been pretty alright since '87, all things considered. Which brings me to why you guys and your obviously wikipedia'd history burns never quite hit the mark: I lived through this stuff, guys. I already tasted the bitter disappointments firsthand, what possible harm do you think lobbing copypasta at me is going to yield?

 

And while I get having pride in what your team has accomplished in a relatively short period (let's not forget the benefits of birthing a franchise after the FA era had begun) it smacks of disingenuity to keep harping on our first 20 years when your first 20 isn't even on the books quite yet. Get you some history first, kids.

saints fans can never decide whether history matters or not

 

either way, we have 6 playoff wins even though we don't have our first 20 years in the books, and you guys have 7 which is fuging hilariously pathetic

what did you say to people when they'd laugh at you and say the saints sucked back when they were shitty

 

would you agree or would you argue with them

 

IRTPT: asking the tough questions. I was around 12 once they started threatening the postseason, so before that I was probably more combative. Like the Huddle.

 

46 years to get a road playoff win = dynasty!

 

 

This guy is still going
