After Sunday; Saints Won’t Look Past Anyone

With the Saints blowing a golden shot to move to 5-4 Sunday, the team now has to regroup and get ready for this weekends game against the Houston Texans.  The road game will feature two teams that are 4-5, and for the Saints, they know that they can’t keep blowing games to bad teams like St.Louis.  “We definitely have that sense of urgency,” quarterback Drew Brees said, “but we still have the division right in front of us. We are only really a game out, we are going to see Tampa Bay one more time; we are going to see all of our division opponents one more time. So we’re lucky to be in the position we are at 4-5 and still only a game out. But we have to keep working, and we have to take it one game at a time. We have a game coming up against Houston, and they have played some good football at times this year, so we are going to have to be ready.”

Houston does have weapons, and one that will be back in wide out Andre Johnson, who has been out since week three with a knee injury.  He likely won’t be all the way back this week, but his presence will add a dimension to the Texans offense that they have not had for sometime.  The Texans were 2-0 with Johnson the first two weeks.  Without them, they went 2-5.  Nevertheless, the Saints are very leary of the team they will line up against in a game that could very well be a shootout.  “It’s the same thing with the Seattle Seahawks,” Saints fullback Mike Karney said. “We were 0-4, they were riding high in the NFC West. It’s the same thing. Any given Sunday, anybody can win. (The Rams) had a bye week, a week to prepare. . . . This is the National Football League, man. It can happen to anybody. That’s the way the NFL is. We’re back to being humble.”
