Welcome back, Saints

Has a team in the history of the NFL ever received more publicity for its home opener than the New Orleans Saints this season?

More than 1,000 media credentials issued for Monday's Saints-Falcons game in the Superdome. Coverage in national publications and national broadcast outlets.

It's hard to believe this is the same Saints team that gets bumped off Shreveport TV when there is a conflict with the Dallas Cowboys.

That being said, the coverage is warranted as the team returns to New Orleans for the first time since Katrina struck last year. Hopefully the coverage will keep the spotlight on the needs in the rebuilding of New Orleans, south Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Otherwise, if it is just blabbering about a football game then it is much ado about nothing.
