Feb 9, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Tom Benson was jubilant after his team, the New Orleans Saints won the super Bowl. The man was beside himself with delight at the Sun Life Stadium of Miami and one could feel his happiness as he was clasping the greatest prize of American football. He shouted ‘We’re back’. The uttering drew applause and cheers from the huge crowd that gathered at the ground. The team has won the Super Bowl but Tom Benson’s happiness was not for the turnaround of his team only. He was happy as the city of New Orleans bounced back after being messed up a few years back by hurricane Katrina. Later the city was damaged badly by flooding. The win of the Saints over Indianapolis Colts in the recently held Super Bowl meant a lot for the residents of the city.
This victory is special for the team as well as its owner. As a matter of fact, the New Orleans Saints did not make it to the Super Bowl game before this year. Drew Brees played a pivotal role behind the win of the team. The experts predicted that he will face stiff competition from Colt’s Peyton Manning. While Drew Brees displayed blazing performance in the game, the majority of the credit behind this win should go to Sean Payton, the head coach of the team. The defense of the team also put up a brilliant performance.
Tom Benson was full of praise for the coach. After this win, the team value of the Saints will go up and the owner would also benefit from it.
