Saints News, 10/28/15: Attitude, Brees, Breaux Among Five Ways Saints Climbed out of Cellar

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: “I like this team,” Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro said. “We have fighters on this team. I think we have guys that can handle adversity. I think we mesh together. I think we have nowhere to go but up. We have a lot of young players, but everybody has a lot of heart on this team. I truly mean that. Day in and day out, guys come into work with a smile on their face, regardless of what happened on Sunday.”
