With Hurricane Isaac inflicting only superficial damage to signs, banners, and landscaping, there’s nothing to prevent the Saints from hosting the Redskins on September 9.

In fact, the Superdome will host as scheduled the Saturday night game between Tulane and Rutgers, according to the Associated Press.

“We have concluded it is not only appropriate to move ahead with this event but essential to show the nation the resolve and resiliency of our community when faced with enormous adversity,” Tulane athletic director Rick Dickson said Thursday, via the AP.

The Green Wave will take the field for the first time under new head coach Curtis Johnson, a New Orleans native who spent the past six years as the Saints’ receivers coach.

Seven years ago, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the region, preventing the Saints from playing any games in the Superdome for the entire season.

  1. Hurricane RGIII is going to destroy the dismal Saints secondary while tornados Helu and Morris blow through the Saints front seven with absolute ease. Redskins 35 Saints 17.

  2. i hope they have air fresheners there, cause as soon as Willie “rg3” Beamer goes in there and stink up the joint, they will have to air it out, redskins=FAIL!!!

  3. And the angels above will smile down on the city of New Orleans and rejoice when Goodell is brought to his knees by justice.

    The Saints, their loyal fans, and America will have satisfaction and the last laugh as New Orleans becomes the first city to host a Super Bowl with their hometown team winning it.

    Dismal Saints secondary? I mean I know the Saints defense isn’t the best but the secondary is probably the strongest unit on that side of the ball.

  5. I almost feel bad for RGIII. HOme opener in the TunderDome. Pi$$ed off franchise. Manical fanbase. Defense with something to prove.

    Welcome to the NFL rook.
