New Orleans Saints History

New Orleans Saints History has been a source of memories for New Orleans Saints Fans for over 10 years now. Some good …. some not so good, but always lots of history for Saints fans. Highlights, schedules and rosters from every New Orleans Saints NFL Season. From the very beginning in 1967 through the years of Archie Manning, Jim Mora and the Dome Patrol, Jim Haslett and Katrina and right up to Drew Brees, Sean Payton and the historic Super Bowl 44 win over the Colts.
Along with Saints schedules and yearly highlights we have tons of pictures of Saints players in our New Orleans Saints Image Gallery and up-to-date All-Time New Orleans Saints Leaders in Offensive and Defensive Statistical categories. Here at New Orleans Saints History we also have many New Orleans Saints Yearbooks in PDF format. We’ve even been adding articles and New Orleans Saints Videos.
So if you’ve been a Saints fan from the old days, look around and enjoy the memories. If you’re a new Saints fan you can see just how far we’ve come since the days of the Bagheads and Big Ben. Or, if your just a fan of NFL history you’ll like the pictures and coverage of the “Old School NFL” we have plenty of that as well. But one thing is sure, New Orleans Saints History is a great site for any Pro Football fan.

Who Remembers Sammy Knight?

Sammy Knight of the New Orleans Saints
I’d love to start a little something on New Orleans Saints History. In the past there have been several Saints teams have been less than outstanding. That doesn’t mean our players haven’t been outstanding.
One thing I’ve always tried to do with this site is point out those players that are deserving of attention despite the team win/loss record those years.
Here I’d like to bring some attention to a ball-hawking safety that was signed as a free agent during the Ditka years out of USC that would go on to be the #3 All-Time Saints leader in interceptions.

The Top 10 All-Time New Orleans Saints Records!

New Oreans Saints Tight End Jimmy Graham

The All-time New Orleans Saints Top-10 Lists.
have finally been updated. And, as you would expect, there has been plenty of movement where Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham and the rest of the Saints offense is concerned. There’s even some developments with defense! Marcus Colston is now the franchises Top All Time Receiver in Catches, Receiving Yards and Touchdown Catches. Pierre Thomas moves up the #4 running back in yards rushing. He passed over the likes of Reuben Mayes and Chuck Muncie to get there. Take a few minutes to look over these lists. I bet you haven’t thought about some of theses guys in awhile!

You can view a summary of all the Changes to the New Orleans Saints Top 10 Records here.

As far as the switch over to the WordPress platform, it seems to be going well and I’m about 80% done I would say. I’d really love to hear what you think about the move. Just leave me some feedback about it.

The First Playoff Road Win in New Orleans Saints History!

Before last night, The New Orleans Saints had never won a playoff game on the road. Prior to the 2013 NFL season, the Saints had played a total of 14 playoff games, 5 on the road. And every one of those had been a loss.
But with the 26-24 win over the Eagles in Philadelphia last night, the monkey is off the back of the Saints.
Mark Ingram rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown and newly acquired kicker Shayne Graham kicked 3 field goals, including the game winner with 3 seconds left on the clock to edge the New Orleans Saints over the Philadelphia Eagles to advance to the next round of the NFC playoffs.
For the most part, the Saints defense kept the #1 ranked Eagles high-powered offense contained with 2 sacks and key stops at critical times. Lesean McCoy, who led the NFL in rushing this year was held to 77 yards on the ground and Quarterback Nick Foles had only 195 yards passing.
The Saints will no face the Seattle Seahawks Saturday Night, January 11 in Seattle.

This is something I've wanted to do for a long now. A collection of New Orleans Saints Videos.
A most Saint Fans know, there is a wealth of videos on the Internet that cover New Orleans Saints Football. The problem is sifting through all the low-quality ones to get the videos that actually are enjoyable.
What I'm trying to do is gather a list of all the Saints Videos that are relevant to history of the Saints and showcase memorable events and Saints players that will always be remembered by long-time Saints fans.
