Fleur-de-Links: March 26, 2012



Following up a that Sean Payton asked Bill Parcells to be interim HC, the 2 are planning to meet in FL this wk to discuss

In the Green Room waiting to meet to do a segment for her show on OWN airing April 9th...very excited

She was ridin'n out on him lol

Headed to Buckeye country ... I always have a good time in Columbus

Got off the plane and immidiately realized I didn't pack enough warm clothes....NOLA got me spoiled

F*** you. RT ™ Don't get your hopes up for Parcells, Saints fans. Or anything else. Ever. Know your place.

I sure hope Parcells can no longer remember as far back as Dec 10, 2006. 42-17, oops. Sorry about that, Tuna. We cool now tho, right?

I'm down for anything that qualifies as a big f*** you to Goodell and pisses off as many people as possible.

30 of 32 coaches were in group photo. 2 missing? Sean Payton & Bill Belichick.

Any chance Belichick skipped the photo session out of solidarity w/ Payton?

Oh, Stephen A. Smith is adamantly against Goodell allowing Parcells to the Saints? Now I KNOW it's a good move.

Parcells is BAD choice for 2012. Go w/ Carmichael. Saints need a meek, nerdy, smiley, non-asshole who'll be "nice" to & crew.

Don't get me wrong. Big fan of Tuna, and it'd be BIG fun. But the last thing Saints need in 2012 is a guy who's also considered an asshole.

Then again, on second thought, from a standpoint, it'd be f*****' GLORIOUS. Tuna would have to go balls-out with it tho.

Wake up moonwalking!!! N. few hrs I'll be on a plane headed to brasil!!

LMAO RT : I solve the mystery of why Sean Payton is at the owners' meetings: Goodell is there. Florida has a "stand your ground" law.

My baby girl has come down with a virus..unfortunately it has to run its course for the next couple days..again thx for thoughts & prayers..

Offseason workout week 2 Super Bowl at HOME in the DOME Plans haven't changed....

": Happy Birthday to Devery Henderson! The Saints WR turns 30 today..." getting old

Since 2006, Devery Henderson has the 2nd best yds. per catch avg (18.5) in the NFL behind Mike Wallace (18.7)

Henderson's career avg. of 18.2 yds per catch is the best in team history by almost 2 yds (2nd: Ike Harris 16.4 yds)

Good Morning World. Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is wht we think of it; the tree is the real thing.


Q&A with LB Curtis Lofton
Curtis Lofton: "I played against these guys for four years. I know they have a very powerful offense and a very good defense. From what I saw, I felt like they were a couple of players away from winning a Super Bowl. I feel like I could be one of those missing pieces and I want to link up with them and take a shot at getting another Super Bowl."
