In which I take all the best news, quotes, pictures and everything else Saints-related toss it together and serve it up for our readers. This week the Saints (5–5) will be playing for their playoff lives against the Green Bay Packers (5–5) who are pretty much in the same position. But who cares if it's two .500 teams with slim playoff hopes? It's Monday Night Football in the Dome. Let us rock.

  • Best Game-Related Storyline to Follow:  Reggie Bush is not expected to play tonight and will thus miss his fourth-straight game due to knee surgery. That puts the pressure on Deuce McAllister to produce. Though the last two seasons are an exception, Deuce is still the Saints' all-time best running back. One more touchdown tonight and he'll be the franchise leader. Here's looking at you, Deuce.
  • Best Non-Game-Related Storyline to Follow: There are just so many to talk about this week. Definitely keep an eye on Poop-Gate once the game ends and throughout the week. But there's also the fact that this is one of the rare nights that a Saints game overlaps with a Hornets game. But wait, the Hornets game isn't being televised. I compare this to Moosedenied's recent dissappearing act, only much worse.

  • Best Random Piece of Saints Merchandise: I don't even know how to begin to describe this Saints toothbrush. I can only hope that even the most die-hard Saints fans won't sacrafice their dental hygiene and actually buy one of these.
  • Best Local Artist to Listen to Before/After the Game: There's no question about this: Dr. John. If only because Saints fans are undoubtly going to need a lot of medicine (perscribed or not) no matter what the outcome of tonight's game is.
