Prolific Brees retains high hopes for 0-3 Saints
METAIRIE - Drew Brees doesn't appear angry about the fact that his NFL-leading production has been wasted by the New Orleans Saints' 0-3 start.
For now, he's trying to compartmentalize.
"I've always been a big believer in, if you focus on the process, the result takes care of itself," Brees said after practice Wednesday. "Sometimes, if you get too caught up with the result, that affects your preparation process and it affects what should be your good, sound decision-making.
"So I have a great process in place throughout the week - my routine, what I do to take care of my body, to take care of my mind, to prepare myself to go out and play my best. And that's all that I can do - try to put the guys around me in the best position to succeed as well, and if that's good enough to win, then that's good enough to win."
So far, it hasn't been good enough, although it has been close. New Orleans lost its first two games by four points combined. The Saints then put up 32 points against Atlanta on Monday night, only to give up 45 - the lowlights being a pair of turnovers the Falcons converted into touchdowns, accounting for Atlanta's victory margin.
