Saints Have New Statue To Honor Their 'rebirth' Against Us.

By Mike Florio:

'At a time when so much talk has been devoted to a statue that has gone down, it’s nice to talk about one that has gone up.

On Friday, the Saints privately will unveil their “Rebirth” statue, which captures the moment from September 2006 at which the Saints and New Orleans unofficially returned from a year lost to a hurricane. It’s an invitation-only event, with players and team executives and politicians present for the pulling of the sheet from the sculpture.

One man who can’t attend due to his bounty-related suspension previously has explained what the statue will look like.

“We’re working on, and have a long-term vision of a statue right there in Champions Square of [steve Gleason] blocking that punt [against the Falcons],” Sean Payton said last year. “And it really represents more than the actual play itself. That play really represents what was the re-opening of the Superdome and the beginning of us kind of picking ourselves back off the mat as a city and getting back to what we know as a normal way of life.”

It was a Monday night moment anyone who experienced it, live or on TV, never will forget. After a

featuring U2 and Green Day, the Saints entered the building and then took the field and forced Mike Vick and company to punt and Gleason slid to his left and sprinted through a gaping hole untouched and
and Curtis DeLoach recovered it and the Saints would go on to beat the favored Falcons and when does football start again because I have goosebumps'

I guess we should be honored they think that play vs us, was a reflection of when the state started rising up. But i guess that would also symbolize us as Katrina?

In any case it shows how important playing us is to them and actually solidifies us as their 1 true rival. Bucs, kitties get nothing... and we get a statue.

lol I love the top comment on that page.

Pretty amazing that in 5 years the Saints went from arguably America’s most loved team to arguably America’s most hated team.

in all honesty this does not make me upset at all. Their place was in horrible condition. and this one game did bring them up. it helped the city feel a smile.

Yes it was against us. but I look at it as we gave them a smile.

--------

for all the haters of this. Grow up. there is nothing we can do about it. this city needed something to smile about. Sure we both hate this team, but get a heart.

----------------

In all honesty I think we lost that game on purpose. I 100% believe that. or maybe we were told to lose. Because that game was the biggest joke of all history. there was beyond so much crap. at times I even thought our D thought we were playing 2 hand touch.

I remember that game like it was yesterday, they pretty much embarressed us there. However, it was the only time I was i felt good for that city/team, but, I wanted us to kick them while they were down. Oh well, we will this year for sure with Nolan!!!!

This in the wake of a bounty scandal. Wiretapping investigation and isn't being involved: n the making and placing of a disrespectful statue having contact with the team in some fashion? They could've picked another sculpture. The city with the superdome prevalent with an iron worker a fireman and drew 100 million bayou breeze. Not the falcons kicker being blocked. Anyways happy the citizens of no and surrounding areas. Lotta friends in houma and tibadeaux.

The statue is more about Steve Gleason, the guy who blocked the punt has ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease) and won't be around much longer. It is about honoring a man who allowed the city to "celebrate again" after what wasone of the most horrible disasters in our nations history.

It's the snide comments and rude remarks which builds up negative karma for your team, resulting in being unable to get a few inches in overtime on 4th down and being able to score more than 2 points in a playoff game.

nice to see the lack of class present in the Falcons fans here. this statue honors a man who has a horrible disease and has started a foundation raising money for its awareness and research

thanks Fibonacci for showing some class. The rest of the idiots in this thread should learn from your example.

I might bash the crap up of y'all or same some bad things about the team or call them taints.

I will also say I was a jerk at one time. I said stupid comments on katrina and made jokes.

But thank God I found a heart. y'all are humans just like me and Dimitroff and Arhtur Blank.........jawing at football is one thing, but bashing another human is totally different and very wrong to me.

I am glad that y'all do see that y'alls most hated rival does have some fans who do have class and respect.

but anyhow I will still jaw bone with y'all any day. :D (even if it is laughing at a women in chick-fil-a for having a saint shirt on, right outside of our training camps....I was not mean to her. I just laughed at the fact some people have balls.) (hey at least I'm honest right. lol)
