Weird season so far, gang. In recent years the Saints have been one of the premier franchises in the NFL. But this year, so far, they’re reminiscent of some of the awful Saints teams of years past. So who’s stinking up the joint worse, the 2012-2013 Saints? Or the 1980-1981 “Aints”?
Tale of the tape
The Saints Vs. The “Aints”
|Drew Brees: Six Pro Bowls, Super Bowl ring, Super Bowl MVP, and more career highlights than Shaft.||Quarterback||Archie Manning: Two-time Pro Bowl Selection, lots and lots and lots of interceptions.|
|Drew Brees' adorable son.||Kids||Peyton and Eli, who have a combined three Super Bowl rings and seven foreheads between them.|
|0-4.||Record Through Week 4||0-4.|
|Used bounty incentive system on Brett Favre's aging, Wrangler-clad knees.||Bounty Scandal||Used Bounty paper towels on tough spills!|
|Losing streak stretches to last year's gut-wrenching playoff loss to Alex Smith.||Relationship To 49ers||Lost gut-wrenching regular season game to Joe Montana. But really, haven’t we all?|
|Even years after Hurricane Katrina, this Saints team is a reminder of the 2009 squad that brought home a championship in the wake of a terrible tragedy. That we can manufacture hope after something like that is a reminder of all that is good in sports - and all that is good in the human spirit.||Legacy||Wearing a bag over your head when your team is bad.|
|Has Drew Brees.||Has Drew Brees||Does not have Drew Brees.|
The winner is
