The Orleans Saints on Sunday were on the wrong end of a play that will live forever in team infamy. Minnesota WR Stefon Diggs caught a desperation pass from Case Keenum and rambled 61 yards untouched into the end zone as time expired in a play that will be memorialized as maybe the greatest playoff moment ever. Long-time Kentucky fans immediately saw the parallels in Diggs’ catch that sends the Vikings into the NFC championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The play became the Saints’ Laettner Moment.

asher vikes2The New Orleans Saints are stepping up a notch tomorrow against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC playoff as they take on the 2nd seed team at the Vikes home field. Last week, the Saints played the Carolina Panthers who they had beaten twice during the season and they were playing at home in the Superdome. They were also healthier.

The Accuweather forecast for Minneapolis and vicinity is for eight inches of snow late in the week followed by a high of zero and low of minus-14 on game day. If you’re thinking of attending, “put on two of everything,” as Jim Finks, the only man who ever headed up both franchises, would have advised.

According to radio and TV talk show host Eric Asher, the Saints have a good chance of winning their first playoff game since 2013. After all, they have played and beat the Panthers twice this year and they are playing at home. However, they just came off a losing performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they are hurt.

That's obviously the top-of-mind question in Louisiana as the Drew Brees-led Saints play its first playoff game since 2013.

landrieu cnnThe only problem is, you can’t count on a disaster occurring every five years or so to cover up mistakes made in governing.

New Orleans proceeds with its infrastructure rebuild after the hurricane disasters of 2005. Given $2.4 billion to accomplish this, about a sixth of that should commence this year, albeit on a pace that would see the last of it completed just before two decades have passed since Hurricane Katrina struck.

There was little question and little doubt the last time the Saints made it to the Super Bowl. Our local heroes went through the 2009 season like a buzz saw, winning their first 13 games and clinching the NFC top seed before the partridge flew into the pear tree. Oh, they had close wins at St. Louis, Washington and Atlanta, and, yes, they lost the last three meaningless games in a strategic move to rest the starters for the playoffs. But there was little doubt the Saints could and would win the Super Bowl.
