Saints moving on to Panthers

Metairie, La. - Despite the negativity swirling around the Saints after their 40-32 loss to the Redskins, the Saints are overlooking their critics.

"We talked about it being overreaction Monday in the NFL," interim coach Aaron Kromer said, "Half the teams won, half the teams lost.  Every team that won was crowned a Super Bowl champion and every team that lost wasn't going to make the playoffs."

The Saints are a veteran group that has withstood the ups and downs of many seasons and understands the only thing they can do is get back to work, according to Drew Brees "We haven't lost in [the Superdome] in a long time.  We didn't lose there last year.  You can do the math, it was probably 500 days since we have lost in that building.  There's disappointment in that, just knowing we're better than that, probably also knowing too that we're going to get all these questions about Sean not being here and our crazy offseason and all that stuff so we just want to get back on the field."

"You get punched in the mouth and you're either going to stay down and pack it up or just get back up," said fourth year safety Malcolm Jenkins, "but I think this is a prideful group.  Nobody was happy with the way we played, we knew that we could play a lot smarter, a lot more physical so I think guys are anxious to get back on the field."

The first step back to their winning ways is a game against the Carolina Panthers, a team that Brees said probably has just as much fire in their bellies after losing in week one and ending the 2011 season with a 45-17 loss in the Superdome.
