Here's to the Saints starting .500 if not worse...


This could certainly be entirely too premature, but there's always time to hope for a rocky start for the 2009 NFC S. champs.  It appears as though Will Smith will be getting hit with a 4 game suspension per due to his involvement in the StarCaps case per Sean Payton.  During his suspension, the Saints play the Pack, Bears, Texans and Jags.  Realistically, not having Will Smith could be a major detriment against the likes of the Packers and Texans high-powered offense.

DE Smith Suspension

The question becomes how will this really affect the Saints D?  Will it affect it at all?  Am I just too eager to see football get started that I am having to throw out hypothetical situations on our rivals chances in the first 4 games??  Probably...but I'd like to think that my wishes can come true in early September...

Weigh in and let me know if I'm just crazy!
