There isn't much you can say when you are 0 and 3. "We're not playing well enough at this point, and we need to find a way to play well enough to win a game. We have to do a better job coaching, we gotta do a better job playing and then things will turn around," Coach Aaron Kromer said. For the first time since assuming the reigns as the interim to the interim head coach, Kromer had and edge to him this week. He was pointed and measured with his words, and pretty focused. He was as sharp as I have seen him since he took over for Vitt at the start of the season. I got the same feeling in the locker room. The sense of urgency can be felt throughout the building here on airline drive. The Black and Gold have their season hanging in the balance in week 4.
With the news about a deal between the NFL and the National Football League Referee's Association, the Saints weren't in the mood to talk about the guys in stripes. "All we're worried about right now is how we're getting better, and how we're going to win a game. I really don't have any comments on the officials," Kromer said.
Quarterback Drew Brees had a similar response, "That's not my thought process, it's about how I can prepare and help this team win. If there is replacement officials out there so be it, we still play the game the same way. If it's the other officials, so be it we're still going to play the game the same way."
With a touchdown pass in Sunday's game against the Packers, Saints quarterback Drew Brees can etch his name in the history books along side an all time great passer. Colts QB Johnny Unitas tossed a touchdown pass in 47 consecutive games. Brees can tie that mark Sunday, but as is often the case the big picture matters most. "To be in the realm of a record that he has held for a long time, it's humbling. I focus on my job and to help our team win." The Packers have the toughest pass defense in the NFL. What gives Sunday?
Just three Saints players started the week on the injury report ahead of Sunday's week 4 match up with Green Bay. Linebackers David Hawthorne has a hamstring injury and Jonathan Casillas is listed with a sore neck. Defensive end Turk McBride is still recovering from a sprained ankle. The Saints have Ramon Humber back on the roster after serving a three game suspension. Humber replaced WR Greg Camarillo on the roster after the veteran wide out was released.
