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.

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.

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.
