Saints hoping to break even as season ends

Metairie, La. - It has been four years since it happened last, but this weekend the Saints will knowingly play their final game in the regular season.

Jermon Bushrod said, "Our exit meeting usually comes in January.  The fact that we'll be done on Monday [Dec. 31] is not a good feeling.  Based on what type of team we have, we just didn't play Saints football, and that's what hurts the most."

Sunday's matchup against the Panthers caps off the most tumultuous season in franchise history, but one with a chance to break even.  That's a big goal for the Saints this week according to Drew Brees, who said, "It makes you want to go out and play your best, go out and finish... despite not meeting our goals, we did realign those a few weeks back and that gives you something to feel good about.  And trying to achieve those, that's what we're trying to do."

When Brees was asked if he took any solace in being called the best team not in the postseason, he said he hates that title and wants to be right back in the mix next year.
