Saints always believed they’d be able to climb the 0-4 mountain
 
1 Attachment(s)
METAIRIE, La. — On Sept. 30, moments after the Saints fell to 0-4 by falling two points short of a win at Green Bay, then-interim head coach Aaron Kromer stood beneath the Lambeau Field stands, defiantly likening the task in front of the team to mountain climbing.

He promised that the team would fight back and would, eventually, climb that mountain, “because the Saints always do things that people don’t expect. It’s part of our nature.”

Seven weeks later, the Saints have found their way back to .500, winning five of the past six games and turning what once looked to be a forgettable season into what could turn out to be something special.

Just don’t ask now-interim head coach Joe Vitt about that mountain.
The curmudgeonly 58-year-old doesn’t want to hear it.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Vitt said Monday, exasperation easily detectable in his voice. “We’re 10 games into a season. We’re .500. We’ve got weeks to go. We’ve got miles to go. We’re nowhere near where we need to be. We’re nowhere near where anyone on this team wants to be. That’s why every practice and every meeting and every chance you have to get better is critical. This is a marathon.”

You never say die. Never give up. You fight till the is over, and it's not over.
