Drew BreesLove ESPNs crazy stats: Jim Thome just passed 5 HOFs (including Mantle and Ruth) to become all time leader in walk off HRs at 13. Impressive

Saints Nation Blog Code. Thome = Brees, Walk off HR = contract, Mantle/Ruth = Manning/Brady RT @drewbrees: Thome passed Mantle & Ruth, leader in walk off HRs

Reid G.Tropical Storm Debby update for dummies: basically, nobody has any f***ing clue where it's going, so stay tuned.

The Angry Who DatYeah, usually the forecasters will say where the storm is going, and caution that things could change at any time.

The Angry Who DatIn #Debby's case, they say "here's a track that she could possibly take, but honestly, we don't have a f***ing clue. Good luck, bro."

Scrutiny of the Bounty (thanks, Deadspin)

Fujita sees bounty probe as part smear campaign | NBC Sports
Brett Martel (AP) - Former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita, a union leader with a record of criticizing the NFL's player-safety record, sees elements of a "smear campaign" in a bounty investigation that has sullied his reputation.

The bounty scandal has fanned the flames of an already fiercely loyal New Orleans Saints fan base | NOLA.com
Jeff Duncan - It seems that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has become enemy No. 1.

Players union responds to Jeff Pash's take on Saints bounty evidence | NOLA.com
Doug Tatum - Union spokesman has different take on 'mosaic'.

League ties "give me my money" video to claim that Hargrove lied | ProFootballTalk
Mike Florio - Regardless of what anyone thinks the 2009 NFC title game sideline video shows (or doesn't show), it doesn't conclusively demonstrate the identity of the person who utters the key words "give me my money" after assistant head coach Joe Vitt tells member of the Saints defense that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre may have a broken leg.

Deuce McAllister not surprised by Saints' bounty charges | shreveporttimes.com
Bob Tompkins - Deuce McAllister, the career rushing leader for the New Orleans Saints, said the bounty cash-for-crunch charges against the Saints for the 2009-11 seasons did not catch him entirely off guard.

Deuce McAllister calls bounties "something every team does" | ProFootballTalk
Michael David Smith - What McAllister is describing may, indeed, be something every team does. But what McAllister is describing is a far cry from what the NFL alleges the Saints did.


Graham vs. Gronk

Graham is not better than Gronkowski - NFL Nation Blog | ESPN.com
James Walker (btw, he's NOT JJ from 'Good Times') - I like Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints. But he's not the best tight end in the NFL. The league's best tight end resides in New England.

Relive all the hard-hitting, high-flying action from the 2011 season with this collection of the most dominating defensive displays. (HansDat note: Myopic view of "top defensive" plays, with most being interceptions. Saints are featured twice - once on a Chris Long clothesline sack of Brees and then on a tip-drill Falcons INT of Brees)
