Sunday Morning Bloody Mary: Seahawks @ Saints Fleur-de-Links Gameday Edition

Good morning. Hopefully, by now you've already heard/read the news about our LS Jason Kyle being placed on injured reserve. If not, prepare yourself by checking out Stu's fanshot about it (which includes Jeff Duncan's tweet and rotoworld's take) and the subsequent commentary. RealHeavyD was also right on the spot with getting us this breaking news yesterday evening, too (pasting links to's report in numerous threads on CSC). Thanks and CSC Props to you both!

As fans, I think we need to be cautiously optimistic about this. If we carry a whole bunch of gloom and doom about it, then we might just bring it all upon us like a ton of bricks. Hope for the best and send good, positive thoughts to our long-snapping unit. As CajunCavern would say, "Relax, have a homebrew."

After what seemed to be an excruciatingly long bye week, today we finally take on the Seattle Seahawks in one of the late games, and you've come to the right place for your Gameday preparations.

Make the jump to begin.

P.S. - If you're in NOLA, DON'T DRINK THE WATER!!!! (you'll see why below)

jeffduncantp Surprising news: The #Saints just announced they've placed LS Jason Kyle on Injured Reserve & signed LS Jake Ingram.
jeffduncantp I have no idea what happened with Kyle. Sean Payton did not mention of this at his press conference this afternoon.
jeffduncantp New #Saints long snapper Jake Ingram was a 6th-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2009. He played at Hawaii.
