Good afternoon, Saints fans. There turned about to be enough content released after this morning's Who Dat Say!?! for me to fire up an afternoon Fleur-de-Links.

The players are off today after arriving at Oxnard in the wee hours of the morning. Go here to see how the city is publicizing the Saints visit (Tay and cajuninCA...the page even has driving directions to help you get there!!).

Hotel information from above link for any other CA Saints fans:

The Residence Inn by Marriott at River Ridge is proud to be the host hotel for the New Orleans Saints Training Camp. See our Special Offers page for camp rates! Ask for the New Orleans Saints Training Camp rate!

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for late breaking news, so this post may be updated through the evening if there's an injury report or press conference from The Visor later on today...

From the Saints Sideline

Saints-Texans Observations: No way to 'defend' first half performance |
Brian Allee-Walsh - A potentially dreamy week on the climate-friendly Pacific Coast may have just turned into a California nightmare for the New Orleans Saints.

New Orleans Saints' preseason whipping is no reason to panic |
Jeff Duncan - Trip to California will be no week at the beach.

New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan state (sic) his case with another TD |
James Varney - Backup QB Chase Daniel starts well, but finishes poorly.

Bobby Hebert On Saints/Houston: ''Embarrassing'' - WWL | AM870 | FM105.3
Well, Who Dats, Coach Payton said in his comments that you can’t sugar-coat the performance of the Saints against the Texans.  I have to agree. 

Texans Postgame Quotes |
Quotes from McNair, Kubiak, Foster, Johnson, Reed, Schaub, Smith, Tate, Watt and Williams.

Pat Y. - Time for a Sunday plunge into the NFC South mailbag. (HansDat note - now that summer's almost over, maybe he'll quit with all these plunges and dips - rumble grumble...making me want Nestea and some Ruffles)
