Drew Brees said he doesn't know the Saints' playing-time plans for Thursday night's preseason finale against the Ravens. "But I know the mindset this whole week has been that we're playing," Brees said. "We had a lot to work on obviously coming off of last week. … The more time we can get together, the better." Earlier Tuesday, coach Sean Payton suggested that the plan right now is for starters to play, including Brees. When someone pointed out to Brees that he hadn't played in a preseason finale in 10 years, he said, "Doesn't matter to me, football is football, a game's a game."

Sean Payton said Saints plan to play their starters in first quarter of Thursday's preseason finale, and it sounds like that includes QB Drew Brees, who hasn't played in preseason finale since 2006. That shows how eager Saints are to get some momentum going after a sloppy 0-3 start to this preseason.
