Damage control Week 5: New Orleans Saints vs. San Diego Chargers

Think back for a moment and picture a World War II submarine action movie. Remember the scene after the enemy destroyer passes above the submarine with a depth charge run. While the sub's captain is lining up a torpedo shot from the bow torpedo tubes, he calls for damage control to give him an assessment of any and all damage to the submarine. That is, if he survives the attack.

In other words, the battle rages despite damage to the sub or crew. It's about staying alive. While the weekly NFL battle is anything but heroic, it does have some striking parallels to this wartime analogy.
