Travel day to New Orleans . . . a few links to stories in print and/or on the Web in Bay Area News Group papers:
To find out why it will be no Brees in the secondary for the Raiders against the Saints Friday night, click here.
To read about how Raiders coach Dennis Allen has borrowed heavily from Saints coach Sean Payton, click here.
To read Tim Kawakami’s column about why this team is a better fit for Allen, click here.
For a link to Friday’s noontime chat that I’ll be conducting from New Orleans, click here.
(There’s a noontime chat on the 49ers as well, which I’m guessing is of interest to exactly zero people who read this blog).
