Fleur-de-Links - Oct. 10th: Saints Look to Regroup After Disappointing Loss

GLENDALE, AZ - OCTOBER 10: Quarterback Drew Brees #9 of the New Orleans Saints leads teammates out of the locker room before the NFL game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on October 10, 2010 in Glendale, Arizona.

There was considerable roster adjustment today. Most notable is the curious signing of RB Julius Jones and the release of RB DeShawn Wynn. In addition, the Saints also signed S Matt Giordano and CB Reggie Jones while releasing K John Carney and LB Harry Coleman. I guess that 29 yard missed FG ended Carney's usefulness in the eyes of Payton. Let's hope Garrett Hartley has cleared whatever cobwebs were in his head and gremlins in his feet and is now reliable once again.

For the time being there is no Reggie Bush to run around and away from tacklers on his way to a touchdown dive inside the pylon. There is no Pierre Thomas to run through tacklers on his way to pay-dirt with a hand-off or a screen pass.
