New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks: Colston, Shockey Should Play
Written by 

Sean Payton said on Thursday before the team left for Seattle at 6 p.m. that Marques Colston, Jeremy Shockey, David Thomas, Alex Brown and Anthony Waters practiced "full" on Thursday. Anthony Hargrove, Jimmy Graham, Malcolm Jenkins and Danny Clark did not practice.


 All the injured players made the trip to Seattle and could play.

"Both David and Jeremy perked well and the news on Jimmy (Graham) has been good," said Payton. "He's feeling better than earlier in the week where there  was a lot of doubt. But you just pay attention to the treatment schedules and make sure as best you can that the players are off of their feet and doing all the things they need to do in the rehab process and get ready to go."

Payton said he got good news on Jenkins' knee injury. "They key is paying attention to the swelling, but he's going well; he's doing very well," said Payton.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
