08:01 AM ET 09.27 | Many expected a decline with the Saints in 2012, but few predicted 0-3 out of the gate. Drew Brees' play was elevated when he hooked up with [Sean Payton], and it's gone down without him. "Sean Payton always was in Brees' ear," a front office man said. "He was always giving him guidance. They truly miss that." ... With other elements of the team struggling, Brees has taken a lot on his shoulders. One scout thought Brees has been trying to do too much and forcing passes. He said Brees misses not having a long ball threat since Robert Meachem left and Devery Henderson has been injured. That means defenders don't have to honor the deep threat and have a smaller field to concern themselves with.

There are odd numbers, too, you know. And irrational numbers.

Like, "What's purple and between 3 and 4?"

Keep losing and those bags will be plastic without holes cut in them.

He threw 22 ints. in 2010 with Payton around. It is not like he has not been down this road before.
