MMQB: Saints Marching Home

Peter King looks at the Saints' return to the Superdome. Aaron has mentioned this before, but it bears repeating: Why is the football media doing more Katrina coverage than the news media? I honestly think Peter King has written more words about the recovery of New Orleans than a lot of op-ed writers at major daily newspapers.

Pac-10 to Stagger Ref Suspensions

From the AP: "The referee who was suspended after last week's controversial Oregon victory over Oklahoma will work the USC-Arizona game Saturday."

Steelers' DBs Can't be Lost in Space vs. Bengals

If you watched the Steelers-Jaguars Monday night game you probably noticed Pittsburgh cornerbacks giving a big cushion to Jacksonville wideouts. Byron Leftwich noticed too because he completed 26 of 39 passes for 260 yards.
