“Oh When the Saints, Go Marching In!”
Their name being an allusion to All Saints Day of the Catholic Faith, the New Orleans Saints are an American football franchise located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Playing their home games at Tulane Stadium, the Saints are members of the NFC South and their uniform colors consist of black, gold, and white. In 1967, the team was founded by John Mecom and David Dixon from the city of New Orleans. In their inaugural season in 1969, the Saints ended their season 3-11 and for the first two decades of their existence, they weren't able to finish anywhere as high as second place in their division until 1979. In 1985, the franchise was purchased by Tom Benson and Jim Mora was appointed head coach along with Jim Finks as general manager. With these three, the Saints were able to get their first ever winning record and playoff appearance in 1987. They were able to make another playoff appearance as well as their first division title in 1991. By the end of the 1999 season, however, the coaching and management changed as Jim Haslett was hired to be the Saints new head coach. He was able to bring some success to the team as he took the team to the playoffs in 2000 and a district championship before being replaced by Sean Payton in 2006.
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina destroyed the beautiful city of New Orleans, causing serious damage to the Saints previous stadium, the Louisiana Superdome. Due to the tragic event, the Saints weren't able to play any home games for the entire 2005 season and were evacuated to San Jose, California where they practiced and had their preseason games. It was in the upcoming 2006 season that the Saints were able to clinch a division championship as well as a playoff appearance but lost the NFC Championship game to the Chicago Bears. They were able to do so in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome which was also known as the Superdome or the Louisiana Superdome. With their upcoming season, they currently have Sean Payton as head coach along with six newly drafted players.
With the first round of the 2014 NFl draft, the Saints chose wide receiver Brandin Cooks from Oregon State. Being a previous sprinter for the Junior Olympics as well as playing basketball at his high school, Cooks uses both his speed and agility to excel in his position. Their second round pick went to cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste from Nebraska who was considered one of the best prospects in his position for this draft season. The remaining four choices went to inside linebacker Khairi Fortt from California-Berkeley, safety Vinnie Sunseri from Alabama, outside linebacker Ronald Powell from Florida, and offensive tackle Tavon Rooks from Kansas State. One of the main reasons Payton chose Fortt was for their special teams, making an excellent addition to the already existing team. Fortt along with Powell are a big contribution to the Saint's defensive line and in the future, could put up a strong front. With their preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, the Saints are starting early to prepare their players for the preseason game.
