If Drew goes to practice this week and throws and has no pain and everything feels great, then Drew should and will play.Strief says the idea of resting Brees one more week because Teddy Bridgewater can handle it does not make sense.There is just no such thing in the NFL as Oh, well just skip him for a game, well rest him for a game. Theres not enough of them. They are all so important.Some people have suggested that Brees not rush back, but Strief says thats misguided.This isnt Major League Baseball or the NBA where theres 82 or 162 games in the season.

A big key to their success was the play of Saints RB Latavius Murray. Payton praised his performance and the big guys blocking for him.Hes certainly handled the workload in a big way. I was proud of him. Hes got enough burst and, deceptively, he can bounce a ball, get outside and cut back to find cavities in the defense. He was a game ball recipient yesterday.I thought the offensive line was fantastic, Payton continued. It was a good front we were playing against. I said this after the game, generally, when you win that battle in the trenches, you win the game.It was the Saints special teams that responded first when they blocked Pat ODonnells punt, which resulted in a safety within the first two minutes of the game. The special teams also allowed a Bears kick return for a touchdown and an onside kick, but overall Payton said he was pleased with the unit.I thought, overall, it was a good game for us. I thought they had the big return. The thing that concerns us the most, obviously, they have two elite returners. A kick returner thats one of the best in the game and a punt returner. Towards the end of the game, those onside kicks, fortunately we were able to secure the win.Two players on defense that Coach Payton thought stood out were defensive captain Cam Jordan and rookie DB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.One thing about Cam is he plays play No. 60 the same way he plays No. 8 or No. 9, Payton explained. Hes got fantastic stamina. The way were playing defense, were not defending 70 plays now. Were getting a much smaller pitch count because were getting off the field on 3rd down.Chauncey played at a high level, Payton went on. Coming from Florida, we felt like nickel and safety were two positions we had a vision for him with. Hes a confident player. Hes a completive player. Weve seen it during our two-a-days, weve seen it when he came into the building. Hes transitioning very quickly.Strief and Hebert also asked Payton about the status of injured, including Drew Brees.Sometimes you get an injury and you get to see more of another player, Payton said. Well be waiting anxiously for Alvin to return. Those are good problems to have when you have good football players that can not only execute but help you win games.Many fans have stated that Brees should remain out until after the Saints bye week, just to be on the safe side but Payton said the future Hall-of-Famer will play when hes healthy.I think, to the everyday fan, they look at the bye and they look at the next game, Payton said. We go by the medical reports and the trainers. If hes 100 ready to play then hes back into the lineup.We pay close attention to his recovery and how he feels, Payton continued. When that time comes, well be smart and get him back into the lineup. The only time that will change some is in the postseason.The Saints return home this week to face an Arizona Cardinals team thats won three straight. Following that, its a bye week which should give the team time to heal before the final eight games of the regular season.

I was skeptical at first, but go Teddy.In the 2nd half I had no idea they would do that, this Saints fan said. I mean I hoped they would beat the Bears, they have every weapon available to do so, but they didnt deploy that until the 2nd half. They stepped up when they needed to, Teddys not doing anything to get us in trouble, its beautiful, one man told us.It was very concerning having Cook, Kamara and Drew out, but our offensive line stepped up when they were needed, said another fan.
