Fleur-de-Links September 12, 2010: No-Saints Sunday

Let me say again, Welcome to Opening NFL Sunday 2010.  It's finally here!  We'll spend the day with no real Saints action, but lots happening around us in the league.

I hope you enjoy today's games, and if you feel like it, swing by the NFL Opening Sunday Open Thread and drop some knowledge on the other CSC Faithful.

Jump right into the links and videos and tweets.  And you don't even have to wait 15 minutes after eating...
