The Fall of New Orleans 
~In March 1862, Union Flag Officer David Farragut assembled a large fleet of warships, mortar boats and transports at the river’s mouth. Onboard the transports were thousands of infantrymen under the command of Maj. Gen. Benjamin F. Butler. Farragut knew the forts were too strong to run past or to capture. Instead, he chose to reduce them first with the mortar boats commanded by his foster brother, Lt. David Porter, then dash past them to New Orleans.

Saints Coach Joe Vitt: Wiretapping story juvenile, irresponsible
Bobby Hebert: No competitive advantage in eavesdropping ~WWL~For example, the same route I was running with the Saints might have been called a "China route," when I went to the Falcons, it might be called "a Rocko." And that's just ONE route, out of the whole play book that you'd have to know. It's almost like that movie "Windtalkers" with the Navajo translators...Windtalkers on steroids! You'd have to be almost Albert Einstein of football to be able to process all that in such a short time...Almost at computer speed, you just can't do it.
