The 2006 New Orleans Saints season began with the team trying to improve on their 3-13 record in 2005. All of the team's 2006 regular season home games were played in the Louisiana Superdome, which had been damaged all of the previous season by Hurricane Katrina. At the time, it had been New Orleans' most successful season, with the team reaching the NFC Championship for the first time in franchise history.

Famous quotes containing the words season and/or saints:
“The theater is a baffling business, and a shockingly wasteful one when you consider that people who have proven their worth, who have appeared in or been responsible for successful plays, who have given outstanding performances, can still, in the full tide of their energy, be forced, through lack of opportunity, to sit idle season after season, their enthusiasm, their morale, their very talent dwindling to slow gray death. Of finances we will not even speak; it is too sad a tale.”
—Ilka Chase (19051978)
“The saints with their beau-peers whole worlds outwear,
And things unseen do see, and things unheard do hear.”
—Giles Fletcher, The Younger (15851623)
