Imagine being a fan in Cleveland. Or Jacksonville. Or even Detroit (never mind that the Lions actually lead their division).

Thirteen current NFL franchises have never won a Super Bowl.

That’s 13 out of 32 teams, or nearly ONE-THIRD of the entire NFL.

Five of them have never even gotten there.

Followers of the Jets, Chiefs, or any Los Angeles team either currently (the Rams) or formerly (the Raiders), have not seen a Super Bowl win in over 30 years.

Do the 49ers (1-9), Jaguars (2-8), or Browns (0-10) to name a few, have any logical direction at the moment?

Chargers or Raiders fans may not have a hometown team next year, and St Louis doesn’t have one at all anymore.

Saints fans have been through all of this, perhaps more.

Let us not forget what this franchise means to the city of New Orleans and the entire region. It is a “family”, and families are thankful — especially today of all days.
