NEW ORLEANS - Saints fans marched out of Soldier Field celebrating the team's first win against the Bears in Chicago since 2000.

Back in New Orleans, Who Dats lined up outside the airport to welcome the team home. With a 5 and 0 record, there's Saints euphoria across New Orleans.

Nelson Savoie says a win in Chicago is bliss. He remembers attending a game in 2007 when he says the Bears' fans were over the top.

"I called the Mayor of Chicago. It was that bad," Savoie said.

This Sunday, Savoie watched the game from home and said he knew the Saints would make him proud.

"This time the Saints went in and said, 'Hey, they are just a regular football team. We can do this,'" Savoie said.

Leroy Mitchell, also known as Whistle Monster, said there's something special about having Coach Sean Payton back.

"I like to call it, getting the band back," he said. "I love the fact that the band is back together again."

"I think we have a chess-playing coach," said fan Aiji Daste. "I don't know if you've noticed, but he's played every team differently. I think he's a Jedi."

From Coach Payton's play calls to a defense that fans say has really stepped up this season, they can't seem to get enough.
