Mickles: 'Positives' not enough for Saints
 
1 Attachment(s)
GREEN BAY, Wis. ó As they stood in the visitorsí locker room at Lambeau Field late Sunday afternoon, the New Orleans Saints didnít want to hear about positives.

This is how they felt despite playing their best game so far this season in a 28-27 loss, their fourth straight to open the season, against the Green Bay Packers:

Positives donít get you to the playoffs. Wins get you to the playoffs.

While the positives were encouraging signs of improvement, the Saints know they wonít pay the bills.

ďNobodyís into taking positives from a loss,Ē said strong safety Roman Harper, one of the teamís defensive captains.

For the second week in a row, the Saints were in position to put an end to their early season woes before failing. And for the second straight week, they couldnít finish the job.

We are better than that statement in the redzone... We are tied for 5th in the league in the redzone. Not many do it better than we do... actually only 4 do it better.

well then we must have padded that stat during garbage time, because sunday, when we needed a touchdown inside the 10, and had 6 chances to do it, we got stuffed.
