Fleur-de-Links - Jan. 18th: Payton Nominated for Don Shula NFL Coach of the Year Award

Very little Saints news today. In what little news there is, Sean Payton is nominated for the inaugural Don Shula NFL Coach of the Year award, several Saints players tweet their support of a petition to avoid a lockout next year (like the owners will actually care about a petition), and the Saints sign seven practice squad players to futures contracts.

Just for fun, what caption would you provide for the picture to the left? According to the AP, this was snapped right after our surprising loss in Seattle, which is why that Saints fan looks so bummed.

I know they say we shouldn't worry about things we can't control, but dang! Sometimes waiting on other people to get work done is painful!
