We laughed when Katrina cleanup czar Donald Powell told us last summer: "You can write that on August 22 I predicted that the Saints will make the playoffs." Well, the New Orleans fan is the one laughing now, as the team is indeed headed to the post-season. His new prediction: The Saints will face the San Diego Chargers in the Super Bowl. In the end, he adds, the Saints will top the Chargers 45-42, based on special-teams heroics. The Texan says that the unexpected Saints juggernaut has done miracles to change the mood in nola. "It's huge," he says.
