Everyone - The heat during practice today was oppressive. A few players, like Pierre Thomas, Curtis Lofton, Jermon Bushrod and Courtney Roby, had to leave the field.
Jonathan Casillas - Casillas is credited with the play of the day after making a one-handed leaping interception off Drew Brees.
Michael Higgins - He scored not one but two touchdowns today in 11-on-11 drills.
Drew Brees - He keeps throwing interceptions in practice. I'm pretty sure it's time for Who Dat Nation to start freaking out.
Reason to be Optimistic
The entire team is currently firing on all cylinders. The offense showed marked improvement today over yesterday's performance while the defense remained stout.
Reason to be Pessimistic
It's been a while since the Saints have had to close practice to the public and move everything to the indoor facility. Almost too good to be true. If I was a betting man, I'd say it's going to happen sometime this week and hopeful fans will be shut out from watching practice.
