CINCINNATI — Drew Brees called the Saints together before the start of practice Tuesday, an uncharacteristic move by the quarterback to make sure that a team with so much experience in dealing with distractions was ready to handle the latest one.

The Saints practiced on the Cincinnati Bengals’ grass fields downtown on a sunny, 87-degree afternoon while Hurricane Isaac bore down on New Orleans, finishing their preseason the way their entire offseason has gone. It’s been one thing after another.

“A lot of this has been swirling around us, and now all of a sudden, we’re together and let’s make sure we’re out here with a purpose,” Brees said, summing up his speech to the team. “It’s to get better, not just to run around and run some plays.

“We’ve got a great group of guys, great leadership. Everybody understands we’re going to weather the storm literally and find the way to make the most of it and make a positive out of a tough situation.”

Re: Drew Brees reminds Saints of big picture with Isaac

Most of the team flew into town on Monday night. A few players arrived Tuesday morning after evacuating their families. Brees drove his family to Birmingham, Ala., then flew to Cincinnati on Tuesday morning.

When they weren’t in meetings or practice, players were on their cell phones or watching the storm’s progress on television.

“I’m glued to the TV, just trying to see where that storm’s tracking and how strong it is and what the projections are,” Brees said. “The crazy thing is we’re going to play a game in Nashville and by Thursday evening, the (remnant) of the storm is supposed to be there. So you can’t really escape it.”

No doubt, why not throw a hurricane into the mix also.
