Super Bowl XLVII: even with problems, Saints have chance to play in New Orleans

While the NFL's championship game makes its triumphant return to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII, the state of football in the Crescent City is decidedly less celebratory.

How could it be when the bounty program punishments of coach Sean Payton (the entire 2012 season), linebacker Jonathan Vilma (all of 2012), general manager Mickey Loomis (eight games), interim coach Joe Vitt (six games) and defensive end Will Smith (four games) will hang heavy over the franchise all season? Or when Loomis has been accused of eavesdropping on other teams? Or when franchise quarterback Drew Brees and the team still haven't agreed on a long-term contract, putting his 2012 (and his future in New Orleans) in doubt?

While our schedule is rather daunting, I like our extra motivational tool, the proverbial chip on our shoulder.

It's a very possible scenario. We've got the top offense and talent on defense......how much? We just don't know. We've got new players and a new scheme. However, we won the Superbowl the last time we changed defensive coordinators

The defense that is sure to be greatly improved has me the most excited about the postseason!

As long as the team sticks together and we keep the injuries in check, we're good to go!
