“So now, as tough a pill as it is to swallow yesterday -- and it’s tough for every one of us -- by the time tomorrow comes around we’ve gotta get ourselves back up off the mat and prepare for a real good football team that’s coming in here,” Payton said of Sunday’s upcoming home date against the 11-0 Carolina Panthers.

“November is a month where oftentimes division races, playoff ramifications, all of those things get a little bit more clear. And we didn’t play as well as we would have liked to play in that month.”

I wrote Monday morning about how vital it is for the Saints to show some signs of progress down the stretch. Otherwise those questions about the futures of Payton and Brees in New Orleans will only increase.

Payton insisted, however, that the focus won’t turn toward 2016.

“Never at any point do you ever look at playing for next year. That doesn’t exist at all,” Payton said. “And that won’t as we play these next five weeks, not one time.”

Yes, Payton said the Saints will continue to develop and evaluate young players like rookie Andrus Peat, who started at left guard Sunday at Houston.

Re: Sean Payton we have to get ourselves back up off the mat.

Wtf do ya'll expect him to say? He's the coach of a professional football team. Would you rather him just say, "Yeah screw it. We're finished. Hopefully I can keep my job after this season but who knows. I've told all the players to just tank it for the rest of the season.

Oh I know there's still a slim chance we could get into the post-season, but why try?"

Good grief some of ya'll are ridiculous.

Thats an insult to Ridiculous.

When I'm feeling down and need a little pick me up, I just read posts here (and other Saints sites) and I think... at least I'm not as ignorant as these dumbasses.

Getting up off the mat won't be an easy task against Carolina. Could be a trap game for the Panthers, they could be looking past us and we could catch them blinking.

There's one problem with getting up off the mat. I fear we have become the mat.

Re: Sean Payton we have to get ourselves back up off the mat.

We got off the mat against the Giants but then someone left the stool in the ring and we went right ahead and fell over it, head first into the spit bucket. Everyone is pointing and laughing and saying 'spit head, spit head' as we stumble around with phlegm in our eyes and our shorts around our ankles and...oh no, our laces are undone and a banana skin is on the floor. I sense a comedy tumble!
