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.”

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