First- It was the 2000 season and we hosted the Raiders. It was the game Jeff Blake went down and Brooks came in. Saints wound up losing 31-22.

Best- Hands down the re-opening against Atlanta after Katrina. To me, it still hasn't gotten as loud as that game.

Worst- Cowboys game in 2009 when they handed us our 1st loss.

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended


FIRST: 1991 Tampa Bay (it was like game 6 or 7 of an 8 game winning streak we opened the season with)

BEST: NFCC game 2009

WORST: Haven't really seen a really bad one in person but I guess losing to the Bengals in 2007 kinda sucked. Colston got injured.

First: 1984 vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. Saints won. I was 6 months old. First game I can remember was against the Oilers. Don't remember the year. Either late 80s or early 90s.

Best: NFCCG....duh

Worst: 1991 playoff game vs. Falcons. I cried the whole way home.

First some game in 1987. Couldn't tell you which one.

Worst- wild card game against the Vikings back in 1987.

Best- Saints/Cowboys this past Sunday because we kicked their arse and I was in a suite on the 50 yd line.

Been to every game but 1 since 1998 so this is hard to choose. But I'll give it a go.

First: 1992 vs the Bills. Only thing I remember was that we sacked Jim Kelly in the end zone but the refs didn't give us a safety

Best: Hard to top the MNF game after Katrina. I would pick the NFC title game but it was too damn nerve wracking. The most fun I've ever had was the Pats game.

Worst : Tim Couch and the Hail Mary to beat us on the last play. Ditka falling to the turf, fans just staring with bewilderment haha.

First- dolphins game in the 90s where Marino sat out and we won.

Won- Saints homecoming game

Loss- vikes on MNF when Reggie went nuts. Most upset I've ever been leaving a game.

First: 1992 against the Redskins who had Rypien at the helm. We won pretty easily as I recall.

Worst: Tim Couch game and the first Eagles playoff game (tie)

Best: Two years ago against the Falcons when Brees broke Marino's record

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended


I've had season tickets since 2001, and had started going once a year to games with my dad when I was a kid.

First: Preseason game vs. Colts in 1988. My mom was part of the halftime show.

Best: NFCCG (of course). Also the Domecoming & Eagles playoff game in 2006.

Worst: Toss up. 02 Culpepper fumble/2-pt conversion to beat Saints 32-31. Also, Atlanta that same year. Saints came back to take the lead on epic Deuce TD run, only to lose on a long FG as time expired 37-35. Atlanta natives were doing the dirty bird up the aisles.

All of the Tiger stadium games sucked. I thought the team was moving after that.

First: colts at saints 1986? Maybe. Snow on the ground walking to the dome. Saints won 40 to 6 or something like that and colts kept out of playoffs.

Best: 2006 re opening of dome
Runner up: Hakeem dropped the ball!

Worst: countless losses... Pretty much all the same. I'm drunk and pissed by the end

First (and maybe worst): 2001, Week 17, vs San Fran in the Dome. Lost 38-0.

Best: 2006 Divisional playoff game vs Eagles. The Joe Horn cellphone game against the Giants in 2003 was a lot of fun for me, also.

Worst: Yea, that San Fran game in 2001 sucked. So did the Browns game in 2010.

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended


The first Saints game that I attended was when the Saints played at home against the Chicago Bears in 1996. Since that time, I have attended four other Saints games, a regular season game in 2003 against the Carolina Panthers, a regular season game against the Atlanta Falcons in 2012, and two pre-season games, one earlier this season against the Oakland Raiders, and another in 2004 against the Miami Dolphins.

BEST By far, the Atlanta Falcons game in 2012, which the Saints won 31-27. It was a close game throughout, and the Saints stopped the Falcons as they tried to take the lead in the final seconds. Came down to the wire, and it's always awesome when the Saints beat the Falcons!

FIRST The Bears game in 96'.

WORST The Saints are 3-2 in the games I've attended, they beat the Bears, Raiders and Falcons, but lost to the Dolphins and Panthers. So I suppose the Dolphins and Panthers games are tied for worst since they lost those games!

I really enjoyed the games in the Superdome and look forward to my next Saints game!

First: don't remember

Best: NFCCG vs Vikings. First playoff win vs the Rams was incredible too.

Worst: Miserable tie between Atlanta and Philadelphia home playoff losses in the early 90s.

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended


First: 1967 against the Steelers. Saints blow a 10 - 0 lead late to lose 14 - 10. Walking back to the car, my dad tells me, "I sure hope that doesn't become a habit with these guys."

Best: Wild Card playoffs in 2000. One of the craziest collective mood swings that I've ever seen. Fans celebrating as the Saints are winning big, then the Rams storm back and the crowd goes dead silent as it looks like another epic Saints collapse. Then Hakim drops the ball and the place explodes.

Worst: I have to separate this one into 2 categories...home worst and road worst. Home worst: 1977 watching Tampa Bay get their first ever win against a Saints team that had basically quit on Hank Stram. Road worst: 1980, the horror show in Candlestick as the winless Saints blow a 35 - 7 halftime lead and lose 38 - 35 in OT.
