Fleur-de-Links - Jan. 21st: Saints Offseason Remains Quiet

Based on the small number of Saints links I found today, I couldn't even think of a better title for this post. It'll pick up soon enough, though. The Q & A with Mickey Loomis is interesting if you like reading "I'm not going to comment on that at this time." Actually, that's not fair. For the most part, it is an interesting read.

We should start a pool on what will be the big, shocking bit of Saints news that's sure to smack us in the face in the next few weeks. You know something will probably happen. What will it be this time? Another Vicodin scandal? A player arrest? Sean Payton passing out drunk on Bourbon Street? Thomas Morstead abruptly leaves the team to pursue a career in the porn industry? He's got the perfect mustache for it! Compared to most other teams, we've got a great group of responsible players and coaches, so these examples are probably unlikely. Although, I could definitely see Jeremy Shockey getting crazy at some point and making the papers. He's a wildman!

What's your craziest guess for some breaking news involving our Saints?

Q&A: Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis on offseason
"Let me say this,’’ Loomis said. "I’m a much better general manager for having gone through (Hurricane Katrina) than I would have ever been otherwise. Look, I wouldn’t trade our Super Bowl win for that win against Atlanta (when the Superdome re-opened Sept. 25, 2006). People say I’m crazy when I say that but I wouldn’t trade that moment. The only one I can equate it to is when your child is born and you’re there to witness it. That’s the closest.
