NFL teams alway say the right things about avoiding letdowns and taking every opponent seriously. Last week, the New Orleans Saints did it.

They challenged themselves to play their best game against the winless Indianapolis Colts, and the result was a 62-7 shellacking, the most-lopsided win in franchise history.

Now, for an encore, the Saints (5-2) will travel to St. Louis to face another winless team, the Rams (0-6). And once again, the Saints insist they need to focus on themselves rather than the opponent.

"We know what type of team we can be and how well we can play. We don't want to be a week-to-week team," Saints quarterback Drew Brees said, echoing Coach Sean Payton, who said, "If you aspire to be a really, really good team, you can't be back and forth."

That sounds great, of course. If teams could play their best football every week, they'd be in great shape.

Brees and Payton admitted, though, that it's a challenge to maintain that level of motivation. It's one of the great battles every team faces in every sport.

"Everybody says it's a marathon. It really is," Brees said. "It's physically taxing, but more so than anything, mentally and emotionally. That's why it takes a pretty mentally strong individual to play the game and to play well on a consistent basis, because it's hard to bring that same level of emotion and focus every day and each time out.

Sounds just like what everyone was saying a few years back when we lost to the 0-8 Rams.

Every Rams fan in that place is going to be praying for a Jackson show.
There won't be anything else to make their ticket price worth it but a good day by SJ,

Thanks for taking me back. I was registered before as Frederick101 (I think) during our superbowl run had a rought time and lost my wife who never got to see the Saints reach the promised land but we have to find ways to move on. Of course my worry is Jackson and I am sure we will see a steady dose. I still have nightmares of Rice and others having their way with our run defense still our achilles heel. Hopefully the D can bow up. Do not think Rogers and Franklin have had very good games as yet those guys need to get some push and shore up our line
