I was just sitting here thinking about the similarities between the damage done to Houston by Ike and that done to New Orleans by Katrina. Part of that thinking led me down the road of wondering what effect the destuction of Houston by ike will have on the won /loss column this season. The Saints suffered a disasterous season after Katrina. I understand a lot of that was because they really didn't have any real home games after that event. But I was wondering how what must be a personally demoralizing event that effects the personal lives of these men and there families will have on this season. My hope is that it will put a chip on their shoulders and make them play from deep inside their hearts. I also have entertained the thought that this might cause them to have a hard time concentrating on football and might cause this season to be a step backward for us. Either way, What are your thoughts on this? How do you guys and gals see this as effecting the rest of our season? Does it make us better, or worse? Have any of you revised your won/ loss predictions based on this event?
