Appropriately, New Orleans was
awarded a franchise on All Saints Day in 1966. Despite
not recording a winning record until their 21st season, the
Saints have enjoyed a devoted fan base. In the mid-1980s,
Hall of Famer Jim Finks turned New Orleans into winners.
From 1987 to 1992, the team advanced to the playoffs four times
and won the NFC Western Division in 1991.
