The first game of the 2012 NFL preseason is now filed away for all posterity, and the Saints reserves held off a late drive by the Cardinals camp bodies to win 17-10. Apparently, Jonathan Vilma's settlement talks with the league allow him to appear here on CSC, so that's nice.
Make the jump for all the post-game coverage I could track down before having to get ready for work today.

Who dats warming up http://lockerz.com/s/231610246
Sprolesy getting stretched out pregame http://lockerz.com/s/231612064
Colston & Devery http://lockerz.com/s/231614610
So Joe Morgan is by far the fastest on field
Me & Bushrod http://lockerz.com/s/231622010
Told Brees will play one series only. Starters maybe a tad longer but not much
Saints' offense clearly missing Sean Payton. Except not. Driving down at will.
7-0 Saints. Piece of cake. Right down the field.
I'm not listening to broadcast. How many times has the word "bounty" been dropped?
Chase Daniel does not get rid of the ball fast enough. I'm spoiled watching Brees

Kent Somers - The Cardinals' appearance in the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday evening was their first since 1986. And given the way things went, they might want to wait longer than 26 years to return.
