Monday, Sept. 26 Pro football, Tennessee at New Orleans (7:30 p.m., ESPN/620 AM/930 AM): The winless Saints play host to the extremely dangerous Titans. Maybe the Saints can rediscover their mojo in their first home game. The Saints look awful. I'd never thought they'd be 0-3. Drew Brees looks like the second coming of Rex Grossman (or as the fans in Chicago put it, "Wrecks" Grossman) with only one TD and 7 INTs this year (including four last night). Reggie isn't exactly running the ball very well; don't let the two TDs last night fool you, as they were from short yardage positions. Also, ESPN is reporting that Deuce McAllister may be done for the year.
