Return to the Superdome
Joe Theismann talks about the return to the Superdome and breaks down the keys for the Saints and Falcons.
Too often we call things events that aren't really events. Too often we glorify situations to create a buzz so we can sell what is really just a game. This week, that isn't the case.
