The New Orleans Saints first came to fruition in 1967, bringing the city their first major professional sports team. The Saints were awful for their first 20 years of existence, only having two .500 years in that timeframe, and it took until 2000 for the team to record their first playoff win.
Hurricane Katrina forced the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, and for a time it looked like they might relocate. It didn’t happen, and with Quarterback, Drew Brees, they went to their first Super Bowl and won it (Super Bowl XLIV).
The Saints have fielded many competitive teams since, but have yet to return to the Super Bowl.
This list is up to the end of the 2021 season.
