Difficulties and making history
Due to the Katrina Hurricane, New Orleans was razed with the surroundings. New Orleans Saints’ stadium sheltered the displaced residents who lost their homes in a natural catastrophe. The stadium itself did not fully resist the hurricane. It suffered significant damage. This caused the Saints to be forced to play some of their home games in other stadiums (New York Giants’ for example). It was finally repaired to the full and ready for the 2006 season but it suffered major financial losses in order to repair the stadium.
After all the difficulties cause directly and indirectly by the hurricane, the Saints were emotionally charged and delivered a monster game under rookie head coach Sean Payton defeating the Falcons with a result of 23-3 and managed to finally achieve their second playoff victory ever.
In 2009 they stepped out quite a bit. It was a historic season for the team. They made it to the finals and won their only Super Bowl appearance ever. They are one of the only three teams ever to have won their only appearance in the Super Bowl joining New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
