Nearly half of the players in the New Orleans Saints’ locker room know what it feels like to go deep into the season without a loss.

After all, they were there just three years ago.

The 2009 Saints won two games, then three, then four, five, six and seven in a row — sparking talk about them running the table and finishing the regular season with a perfect 16-0 record like the New England Patriots had done two years earlier.

As the Saints rolled into the second half of the season with an 8-0 record, uncharted territory for a franchise that had experienced just eight winning seasons to that point, they simply went about their business.

In their ninth game, they squeaked by the St. Louis Rams, who had one win at the time and would finish 1-15. And the Saints needed a miracle to claim their 12th victory in overtime against the Washington Redskins before the streak ended after a 13-0 start.

Of course, they went on to lose their final three regular-season games before rebounding nicely in the playoffs en route to winning Super Bowl XLIV.

But Wednesday, the Saints weren’t about to dispense any advice for the NFL’s last undefeated team this season — the 8-0 Atlanta Falcons, who come to New Orleans on Sunday.
