Saints News, 10/12/15: Saints Searching for Answers after Debacle in Philadelphia

From Katherine Terrell at NOLA.com: "I don't want to hear anything about youth. I don't want to hear anything about talent. I don't want to hear anything about anything other than what we have to do to win this game," Brees said. "We have great leaders and guys who want to do the right thing, guys want to be great and so it's frustrating when you're sitting here at 1-4 saying we're not getting the production out of that."
