CBS Sportscaster Jim Nantz doesnt want to rain on the Saints parade but says the big question about the team is whether or not theyll be able to keep a fan base.
In his words, I dont know if [the Saints] will be able to go back and play there, but I hope they can.
Meanwhile, Nantz co-anchor Phil Simms calls the situation very fragile, and says hes anxious to see if the Saints will be able to transform the negative energy of the hurricanes destruction into energy that helps them.
He admits though, I think it would be hard to do.
The Saints first game of the season will be on Sept. 19 against the New York Giants on ABCs Monday Night Football, but Nantz and Simms will kick off CBS NFL season coverage this Sunday (Sept. 11).
