Fleur-de-Links Wild Card Saturday: New Orleans Saints @ Seattle Seahawks - Gameday Edition

Bring out yer dead! Bring out yer dead! This classic bit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail could represent the 7-9 Seattle Seahawks - dead, or not dead. Watch and laugh. We'll see if they are who we thought they were soon enough. And if Reggie brings the wood, we can club them if they're not dead yet.

Your gameday links, tweets, and videos are after the jump, including a Qwest Field beer expose that will rock your world (see Gull's-Eye View).

In addition to the pre-game analysis that follows, something to watch is the weather, so here are the current conditions at Qwest Field.

Are you pumped for this game? Do I even need to ask? Why am I still talking?
