08:05 AM ET 06.06 | Where are players making the most of their lockout? It continues to be New Orleans. Land. Slide. Listen to Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, and you'll know why. "Players around the league look at the lockout differently," Vilma told me. "Some see the lockout as a time to relax. Some see it as a time to heal from serious injury. Some see it as a time to party. We're definitely not in that last category. I feel pretty comfortable saying that almost every player on the Saints is in terrific shape. We could take the practice field tomorrow in full pads and be fine. This group of guys is in better shape than we were at this time when the Saints won the Super Bowl."

"This group of guys is in better shape than we were at this time when the Saints won the Super Bowl."

That's because you haven't been beat up with 16 games and the playoffs. No one has even had a contact drill yet.

Why buy swamp land when you can get a 5 bedroom house for less?

Because if you get the swamp, you don't have to pay to have all the Chinese drywall taken down.

Jonathan Vilma says the Saints are doin' good, so they're doing best in a Land. Slide.

Now that right there is some cutting-edge journalism. I'm dazzled.
