Fleur-De-Links: Saturday, September 10

Today you get your links as a mid-day presentation, while I take the early afternoon to complete the HansDat's Hot Reads analysis follow-up to get that up for you later today (Pre-reply: TWSS).

The Saints players lifted weights, looked at film, and got injury treatment yesterday. They are off today and tomorrow (so lots of navel-gazing tweets are sure to ensue), then will have a light day Monday before being off again Tuesday before jumping into Da Bears preparations on Wednesday as they get back on a normal game-week schedule.

Make the jump for the tweets and links.
