Monday night has never felt so good. The cocktails are flowing, the Saints are signing autographs and the team is 3-0. The boys in black are feeling good.


Quarterback Drew Brees says, “It’s great to be 3-0. Obviously we still have lots of room for improvement, but we’re excited about where we are at.”


Center Justin Drescher says, “It’s always a lot better after a win. Being 3-0 is big!”


Punter Thomas Morstead says, “I wasn’t shaving until we lost, so hopefully I’ll look like Willie from Duck Dynasty by the end of the year.”


Wide Receiver Thomas Morstead says, “I was on the team when we won the Super Bowl and some things kind of feel similar to that season, but we still have a lot of work to do.”


Several players used tonight to celebrate by supporting fellow teammate Malcolm Jenkins.


Jenkins is hosting the Second Annual Taste of New Orleans fundraiser to support his foundation, one that supports our youth.


“We teach them about leadership, health and wellness, all the things you need to be a well-rounded individual,” says Jenkins.


The night could not be more magical. The last time the Saints were 3-0 was in 2009 when they went to the Super Bowl, but the Saints are taking it one game at a time. For now they are focusing on Miami, Jonathan Vilma’s old stomping grounds.


Linebacker Jonathan Vilma says, “I was never a fan of the Dolphins, so yeah. I’m a Hurricane through and through so if we were playing the Hurricanes I might have some issues, but right now it’s all about the Saints.”


Brees says, “We’re going to take a look at these guys here pretty soon. The Dolphins are a playing very well right now. They are undefeated. I’m just glad that we get this game at home and we get the Who Dat nation live and crazy in the Dome on Monday night. It should be a great one.”
