New Orleans Saints vs. Cincinnati Bengals Preview

This week the Bengals face off against the New Orleans Saints, and as some of you know, this game holds a particular interest for me since I lived in New Orleans for a few years back during the pre Marvin Lewis—Dark Ages. I moved back to Cincinnati in 2003, just in time to see Lewis take over the morbid franchise. I have attended every Bengals home game since, save one (I was out of town last year for the regular season Pittsburgh game and I was forced to endure listening to some AM radio station in Salinas, California which would pop in with occasional NFL updates, it was not good times).

This is a difficult road game and the Bengals are now faced with the unenviable task of trying to save their season one week at a time. I’m pulling for them and I have yet to give up on the season. This weekend my wife and I are taking our first ever road trip to see the Bengals in someone else’s house. We’ve seen a few games at the Superdome, but we have not been back to the Dome or New Orleans since Katrina. I'm sure we’ll have mixed emotions when we get there. It seems like most of the places we frequented are back up and running, but from all accounts, the city as it stands now is far different than the city we left behind a little over three years ago.

I’m looking look forward to coming back to the city I called home for three years. I'm looking forward to having some cheese fries at Cooter Brown's and downing a couple of cold Abita Ambers at Bruno's. And even though crawfish season is still a few weeks away, I’m hoping Deanie’s in Quarter has a few from an early harvest they can boil. If not I’ll still be satisfied with a dressed, fried shrimp po boy from the Acme Oyster House.

I’ve been missing my old uptown apartment on Fern Street and right now I’m really missing the balmy "winter" weather they get down south that makes walks in Audubon Park possible in mid January without a coat and mittens.

A few weeks back after the Monday Night Saints home opener, Chris Rose of the Time Picayune wrote about how USA Today published about a half dozen letters from people decrying that $185 million of federal money was spent over the last year to help refurbish the Louisiana Superdome. The thoughts from these letters were clear; people thought the funds directed towards Dome could have been better allocated. Still, the irony of the message was all these letters came from places like Bowling Green, Kentucky; or Des Moines, Iowa.

Rose’s response was perfect, as follows;

“If we did not open the Superdome for Saints games, presumably we could not then open it for the Bayou Classic, the Sugar Bowl, Tulane Football, the state high school football championships, the Essence Music festival, rock concerts, religious revivals, car shows, home and garden shows, or anything else that happens in there in the normal course of a normal year and which generates massive spending, jobs, and activity in the community. No Super Bowls, no NCAA championships, no chance at the national political conventions and worst of all, no monster trucks.”

In a city where the economy is almost completely predicated on tourism and outside dollars, getting the Superdome back up and running was more important that it may seem to people on the outside. When I posted an article about how glad I was to see the Saints return to New Orleans it ended up on a Saints fan site similar to Bengalszone, called Saintsreport. I got more feedback on that article than any other I’ve ever posted. The emails came from all over the place. Displaced Saints fans from as far away as Maine, New Mexico and even New York wrote me and all they asked was that I pass on to everyone outside of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast just how much the Saints mean to these people. Just to show that not all fans of opposing teams are insufferable jackasses like Steeler-fans, I thought I’d share a few in their own words...

“Most of my family LIVED through Katrina in Pass Christian, MS. (55 miles East of New Orleans). Many of them had homes washed away from the 30 foot tidal surge, luckily nobody perished. Fortunately for them my home is in Little Rock, and I was able to put them up for a couple months after the storm. The Saints are a large part of my family and forever will be.” Darrell H. Little Rock, AR

“I do not live in New Orleans, I'm from North Louisiana, but still I can say that over the last year I have shed more tears, lost more sleep over things I take for granted. Being a life long Saints fan I began to feel the emotions welling up inside thinking about their return. By the time they take the field for the Monday Night home opener, I’ll probably have tears in my eyes, not because of the trials and sorrow endured by my brothers & sisters in New Orleans or the Gulf Coast, or even those spread out around the USA and the world. The tears will be a mixture of both joy and heartache not only for what our team has endured but our city, our fans. Good luck to you and the Bengals (but not on November 19th in the Dome).” A Diehard Saints Fan, Steve M.

“It's good to see that the rest of the country hasn't forgotten about Katrina. Any positive attention that we receive (God knows how much negative attention was cast upon the city) is another step in rebuilding a great city. Also, I hope Chris Henry gets on track. I played baseball and basketball with him in elementary school, and he was too nice a guy to make those mistakes.” Michael R., Baton Rouge

“Your article was passed on to me by one of my friends who is a DIE HARD Saints fan. I have to say that this is the first year we have ever purchased Saints season tickets. My husband is a high school football coach so we have little spare during football season therefore we've never taken on the commitment of Saints Games. But Post-Katrina things are different. Sometimes you just have to do things you normally wouldn't do. We bought 5 season tickets and come Monday night, WE will be "in that number" when the Saints Come Marching In. It is definitely more about rebuilding than it is about Tom Benson, but we will be there rooting for the Black and Gold (which in turn, will be rooting for a city that is fighting back). From now on, if the Bengals show up on TV, I will certainly pull for them (as long as it is not on November 19).” Lola L.

“From a displaced Saints fan in Maine, the Saints own my heart and I relish the heartbreak as much as the eventual joy. I mean, really, I've statistically got another 45 years or so at least, and the Saints have gotta go to the big dance sometime, right? RIGHT?” Chris B.

“We are working hard to recover and man we need the Saints in the worst way! A victory on Monday night would flood the dome again not with water but with tears; the tears of grown men woman and kids. We need this night we need this team and they are the heart of this city and without them the city would never be the same. Please continue to pull for the Saints and say a prayer for the recovery on New Orleans and our friends on the Gulf Coast. Keep the faith and good luck to the Bengals.” Jimmy P.

“I attended the Saints games in San Antonio and Baton Rouge last year and it was painful; kind of like watching someone else sleep with your wife and her enjoying it. Anyway, emotions are starting to rise down here and a lot of the guys around here are afraid the Monday night cameras will catch us crying shamelessly when our Saints take the field.” Adam A.

“I was born and raised in NOLA, and I went to Ole Miss. Just before Katrina, I took a job as editor of a weekly sports newspaper. Having been a die-hard Saints fan for as long as I can remember (I STILL want to be Archie Manning when I grow up), it was, simply, my dream job. I'd be covering my beloved Saints and getting paid for it. The hurricane killed the paper; the team relocated, and, unfortunately, so did I. But I will be in the Dome Monday night, wishing, hoping and waiting for the Saints to accomplish in three games what it took 16 last year - get three wins. Their early (good) start has been phenomenal for the psyche of the city and its expatriates. Thank you for imploring Bengals fans who may have "Katrina Fatigue" to keep us in mind; if they're sick of hearing about all this, just imagine how maddening it is to live it daily. The Saints are truly important to the city, and they continue to have a positive impact the people coping with the day to day realities New Orleans.” Chris P., New Orleans by way of Daytona Beach, Fla.

My wife and I are going down to New Orleans with couple of friends to see a game, and I know that in the grand scheme of things a football game is not that important. Football doesn’t save lives, nor does it sustain life. But for some of us, football is one of those modest things in life that makes life a little more interesting. It’s one of those little luxuries that anyone with a TV or a radio can afford to enjoy....or be infuriated by. It’s a source of hometown pride that can bring people from nearly any walk of life with seemingly nothing in common together for something to talk about. Even if it's just to brag.

I hope the letters above show you how dedicated Saints fans are and just how much their home team means to them. Like I’ve said before, I think Bengals fans and Saints fans share a similar tortured history, and now I think we can see that we share an allegiance to our respective teams. We’ve all worn the brown-bags over our heads, we’ve all complained about ownership and we have all been frightened by the prospect of seeing our team leave town.

I want the Bengals to win this weekend. They need to win this weekend. But I’m also looking forward to sharing a beer with some of the best football fans in country. I only hope that when the game is over, both teams come out healthy and the Bengal fans that make the trip get to come home with braggin’ rights.
