Saints honored with Ed Block Courage Award

Saints honored with Ed Block Courage Award
Associated Press

BALTIMORE -- Wayne Gandy has seen a lot in his first 11 NFL seasons, including some things this past year that few could have ever imagined.

Many in the NFL recognized how difficult things were for New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina forced the Saints out of the city in Augus, and because of that they became the first team to win an Ed Block Courage Award.

The award is given each year to one player from each team who demonstrated courage, often by coming back from or playing through an injury.

oh, yeah.. it took a lot of courage to flee the city days before the hurricane hit and move into luxury condos in San Ant... and to go on playing the game, asking for nothing more than cold hard cash and guarantees frm the league...

..souljahs, I tell ya...
