METAIRIE — Drew Brees readily acknowledges he is an eternal optimist — and won’t buy into the notion that an 0-3 record is proof the Saints are doomed without suspended coach Sean Payton.

When he reviewed video on Monday of New Orleans’ collapse in a 27-24 overtime loss to Kansas City a day earlier, he took note of how much the Saints’ performance for much of the first three quarters, when they took a 24-6 lead, resembled the club that made it to the playoffs in each of the past three seasons.

“The encouraging thing is that you want to see improvement every week. I’d say the first three quarters of that game was certainly an improvement over the first two weeks,” Brees said. “It starts really with consistency. We’ve had moments where offensively we were playing like we play — defensively, playing like they want to play. We just haven’t been able to put together any complete performance yet and it’s caused us to fall a little bit short.

“I’m confident we will get that fixed because we have to, and because we’re three games into the season and we don’t want this thing to get away from us. So there’s a sense of urgency. The time is now.”

The Saints still believe they have playoff-caliber talent on the roster. Most key players have returned from the squad that went 13-3 in 2011.

I'd be an eternal optimist too if I got paid 80 million dollars of guaranteed cash win or lose no matter how crappy of a game I played. This is put your money where your mouth is time for Drew Brees and it is about time for him to start showing the NFL why he is the highest paid player in the league right now. Put up or shut up Drew!!!

0 - 3 and now Green Bay. I don't see playoffs this year. But look at the positive. Next year you will have your coaches and players back and a high draft pick. I think 2013 could be a big year for you. 2012 is sort of a mulligan.

Well he can't make miracles. Too many guys suspended. They can be a lot better when they get all their guys back. It's not all on Brees.
