I don't know how arbitrary it was. The Saints regular season started like this:
September 11, 2005 at Carolina Panthers
September 19, 2005 vs. New York Giants
September 25, 2005 at Minnesota Vikings
October 2, 2005 vs. Buffalo Bills
My point is, I would imagine that they couldn't get the venue logistics worked out in time for the NYG home opening game, but by the Oct. 2 Buffalo home game, they were able to have them relocated.
Or we could just continue to wear our tinfoil hats. Either way.
