Generally outside turmoil leads to inner focus for a football team. It's not like they have problems within their locker room. They are going to take an extreme us against the world approach.

Expect the saints to be very focused and to play with a chip on their shoulders this season.

I disagree.

What you are describing is one possibility. It is up to the leadership of the team to direct & manage that focus. That's when you know you've got good leadership on your team.

Some teams can keep it together, ignore all the outside noise & accomplish their goals. Others fall apart.

I'm not a huge fan of the hype. I appreciate the recognition but I prefer to fly under the radar. Just as it would have been cool to see the Texans on Hard Knocks, I would rather let the media go elsewhere.

Having said that, I think we have a young, focused group with good veteran leadership and very few, if any, divas. It's times like this when having a high-character locker room pays off, I don't think the media will be much of a distraction for those playing. It's also nice not hearing about Tim Tebow every waking hour.

I am excited, I am very excited. But I know that I shouldn't be too confident because one Schaub injury will derail this hype train just like that. I should just embrace the good feeling, but I just have a bad feeling.

We have a good time, but I have no said anything that should be perceived as trash talk all pre season because I know better. We have been down this road before with our former team and I don't want to jinx it.

I hear what you're saying Grams, but I've been noticing a bit of "obnoxiousness" coming from Houston fans after a small amount of success.

Oh, please.

We were obnoxious long before we had any success.
