Bio: Before current quarterback and coaching duo Drew Brees and Sean Payton came together in New Orleans in 2006, the franchise had produced only 5 seasons with a playoff appearance in 39 years. Under Brees and Payton, the team has made the playoffs 5 times in 8 seasons, winning a Super Bowl in the process.

The Saints are a great side to watch if you like a passing attack. There have been only 8 seasons in NFL history where a quarterback has thrown for over 5,000 yards in a single season, and Drew Brees put up four of those seasons, including the last three years back-to-back.

The Saints are connected with their community as much as any other sports franchise in the United States. When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, the city used the Mercedes-Benz Dome as a shelter. Afterwards, the team became just one of the many symbols for the city’s healing. After the Superdome’s reopening in the wake of Katrina, the stadium developed a reputation for being a difficult place for away teams to play. While all domed stadiums magnify the noise of the crowd, the Superdome is known to get particularly loud during games.
