As of Monday morning, the Superdome is intact and the facility itself is ready to host a game on Monday. Doug Thornton, the regional vice president of SMG, the company that manages the Superdome, said "We can't play a game if we don't have staff and supplies, (but) my gut feeling is we're going to play a football game (in the Superdome) Sunday."

Thornton said five factors would determine the status of the game:

1.) Structural damage, if any, to the Superdome.

2.) The ability to get food products transported to the facility this week.

3.) Employee staffing.

4.) Security staffing.

5,) Fan availability.

The final three factors, he said, are contingent on the re-entry plan.

Thornton said about 2,500 workers are needed to adequately staff a soldout Saints game at the Superdome. That figure includes caterers and New Orleans Police Department officers.
