Fleur-de-Links - Nov. 16th: Fleur-de-Tweets

Not much other than player tweets today, so it'll be short and sweet but with lots of funny articles from The Onion. Judging by their tweets, Saints players were just as much in awe of Michael Vick's incredible game last night as the rest of us were. The team resumes practice tomorrow in preparation for the Seahawks.
