New Orleans Saints Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
With New Orleans Saints coming out on top of the NFC South division in the 2018 season, it is safe to say they should be in the mix again to compete for a Super Bowl. The team has a strong, experienced roster but has signed new players and re-signed existing ones to add depth and talent. CBs Ken Crawley and Josh Robinson were re-signed to new contracts. Phil Galiano came in as assistant special teams’ coach, while Darren Rizzi was hired as special teams coordinator to give the players a new sense of direction in that area of the game.
Teams are not excited to go up against New Orleans and their powerful offense. With Drew Brees armed with Alvin Kamara at running back and wide receiver Michael Thomas, the Saints are a threat to score on every position.
A missed call away from competing for the Super Bowl last season, the Saints will be back with a point to prove in 2019. Find your New Orleans Saints tickets today to be a part of this exciting season.
History of the New Orleans Saints
The Saints, an NFL team with a rich and inspiring history joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1966. "Saints" is a reference to the city of New Orleans' rich jazz music history, and specifically refers to the song "When the Saints Go Marching In". The Saints first 20 years in the league did not bring much success, but their fortunes changed in the Jim E. Mora era, when Tom Benson acquired the franchise in 1985 and hired Mora as head coach. During the decade Mora was coach the Saints won a division title (in 1991) and made the playoffs four times, certainly affecting the demand for New Orleans Saints football tickets! After a few more seasons of success and some of disappointment tragedy struck in 2005 – Hurricane Katrina.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina ripped through the Louisiana coast, including New Orleans where the Saints stadium, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was severely damaged. During the following year drama would unfold, with threats to relocate the team to Texas, and concerns that New Orleans would no longer be a good location for an NFL franchise. But the Saints endured, the people of New Orleans were resilient and fought to rebuild the city and keep the Saints in the Black & Gold colors playing in the city they loved. With the Superdome rebuilt in 2006, the Saints were able to play their home games there again! The home opener that year was a wondrous occasion, with both Green Day and U2 performing before kickoff, putting on an emotional and iconic show. During that season, newly hired coach Sean Payton led the resurgent franchise to an NFC championship game, finishing the season with a 10-6 record and moving lots of Saints tickets.
Three years later, during the 2009 season, the New Orleans Saints started the year 13-0, the best start in franchise history. The record earned them a first round playoff bye and a trip to the NFC Championship game, where they defeated the Minnesota Vikings in overtime. The next week, the Saints defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 on February 7th, 2010, to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history. You can imagine Super Bowl tickets were in high demand for that game! After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and the rebuilding of the Superdome, this championship represented the resurgence of a football franchise, and an entire city.
