Duane Brooks was the assistant trainer with the Saints.

I'm told the Pelicans have hired Duane Brooks as athletic trainer. He replaces Jon Ishop, who was hired by the Detroit Pistons last month.

He's right. Make it 8 of 11 teams with red uniforms made playoffs. RT @cody_lorenz bucks also do and did not make playoffs #twitterpolice

Jim Eichenhofer

Random uniform fact: 8 of the 10 NBA teams that have a red uni in their set made the playoffs last season. Only exceptions were Cavs, 76ers

PAT is good. 20-9 Saints with 12:22 to play.

Sean Kelley

12th play of drive is a TD for No. 12!! Saints now lead 19-9

Sean Kelley

1st down at MIN 40. 9th play of drive coming

Sean Kelley

Saints only had 3 yards rushing in 3rd Q

Sean Kelley

Now to the 4th. Saints lead Vikes 13-9. Might see "Angry Brees" as opposed to popular Angry Birds in the final frame. #MINvsNO #Saints

Sean Kelley

Vikes brought the house. Sacked Brees and then personal foul on unnecc roughness. Brees came up scrapping. 1st down and poss MO turn

Brees has been under quite a bit of heat here lately. 3rd and 13 upcoming.

Sean Kelley

Josh Hill has his first TD today and a big first down catch here to get out of own deep end.

Sean Kelley

2:50 left in 3rd. Saints offense sorely needs statement drive here. Don't let MIN hang around into 4th at your place.

Sean Kelley

Saints get a stop at mid field. Will take over at own 10 after punt. #MINvsNO

Sean Kelley

Extra DB in is Brian Dixon on 3rd down

Sean Kelley

Goodwin with leg injury is questionable to return

Sean Kelley

Lelito first snap thru Brees hands. Brees recovers for loss of 18 on play. Punt

Sean Kelley

Tim Lelito work at Center during camp may pay off here. Goody is down. Hopefully ok. #Saints

Sean Kelley

7 catches for @brandincooks and 5 now for @thejimmygraham Brees favorites so far. #MINvsNO

Sean Kelley

Getting @thejimmygraham in one on one with a CB is usually a good thing. #positiveyards #MINvsNO

Sean Kelley

There's a spark. Brees to Cooks for 1st down on 18 yard play

Sean Kelley

Saints hope to get back to 1st Q ways. They had 3 1st downs in 2nd Q as opposed to 11 in 1st. #MINvsNO
