MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. - 
This was for Rickey Jackson.
This was for Morten Andersen.
This was for Eric Martin, Dalton Hillard and Bobby Hebert.
It was even for Archie Manning.
But more importantly it was for the long-time downtrodden city of New Orleans.
The New Orleans Saints are Super Bowl Champions and they did it with heart, grit and determination, the staples of a city recovering from Hurricane Katrina.
Saints cornerback Tracy Porter sealed the deal with a game deciding 74-yard interception return to give the Saints a 31-17 victory in Super Bowl XLIV.
Drew Brees is the Super Bowl MVP. He was 32 for 39 for 288 yards, two touchdowns.
