Good morning, CSCers!  Time to read up on the late Friday and early Saturday news from the Saints and Rams respective camps.

I don't know about you, but I'm glad we are not talking about the weather this week.  It will be a balmy 72 degrees in the Dome, Sweet Dome tomorrow at kickoff, with neglible wind effects.

If anyone else is doing holiday baking like the wife and myself later on today, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Make the jump to get started...
