The New Orleans Saints beat the Carolina Panthers 23-20 in the season opener on Sunday. The Saints, unsurprisingly, dedicated their game, and their season, to the victims of Katrina. Saints players have visited shelters in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, spending time with fans who had lost everything. Each time they heard the same request: Win a game for us. New Orleans quarterback Aaron Brooks was quoted as saying, "Every time we go out there, it is our job to give them hope that every day will be a better day."

Now what football team would want to defeat the Saints? Wouldn't that crush the spirit of hope of the New Orleans home fans? Any team that does defeat them has no heart. They might as well end the season now, and declare the Saints the champions of Super Bowl XL.

Considering the season they had last year, they need all the help they can get this year. At least they are going into the season looking up from the bottom unlike my hometown team the Titans who were at the top and came crashing down.
