Heading into the 2000 season, the New Orleans Saints had spent a total of 33 years trying to find the right ingredients to win in the post-season. While the franchise was able to field All-Pro players, Pro Bowlers and the like, they couldn’t quite get the recipe right and come up with a win in the playoffs. On December 30, 2000, the Saints finally served their fans with the first post-season win in franchise history.
The chef was Randy Mueller.
