    The roof does not open in the Viqueens' stadium, the doors, however, do. Per NFL policy, 90 minutes before kick, the doors will be open or closed through the entire game.

    The doors are huge...


    ...but they'll be closed because of the storm.

    nola.com says Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman were not on the field for the open portion of practice today. Speculate Thomas was just resting his hamstring, but no explanation on Coleman. Tony McDaniel was also out; no explanation, but maybe his wife was in labor. And of course, Andrus Peat was out.

    Maybe they're all watching reruns of MASH.

    Tony McDaniel to IR. If we win it all it's got to be some kind of a record for a champion with number of people on IR. I bet we've basically lost an entire side of the ball in starters alone.....damn.

    Damn near:
    DE Hau'oli Kikaha
    DT John Hughes
    DT Nick Fairley (non-football illness)
    DE Alex Okafor
    LB Alex Anzalone
    LB A.J. Klein
    LB Nate Stupar
    CB Delvin Breaux
    CB
    S Kenny Vaccaro
    S

    Plus 2 more defensive linemen and 8 on the offensive side of the ball, including 3 tight ends.

    Edit: make it 9 on offense, they also put Peat on IR

    We signed Jeremy Liggins to the practice squad. The one-time LSU QB commitment is now a Saints defensive lineman

    Also John Kuhn and Jon Dorenbos. Both were pegged as starters although with Dorenbos, the trade got rescinded after the medical issue was discovered so it actually kind of never happened. Still though...
