Saints prep for remaining pre-season games

The Saints will play in Houston Sunday, the third of four pre-season games and the most important. The starters will be playing three quarters and won't see much action, if any, in the Miami game next Thursday.

Tight end Jimmy Graham says that with Atlanta coming in September 8, the Saints are treating this Sunday like a regular season game.

Interesting.  Graham has 25 NFL starts, and 25 touchdown passes - all of them thrown by quarterback Drew Brees.

The 34-year-old Brees has said he can play until he's 40. Graham agrees, and certainly hopes so: "We were actually talking about that last week. I had a press conference with him myself and asked him how long he was going to be here for [because] whenever [that happens] I'm going to have to retire. He's definitely got it in him to play until 40 and beyond. The way he takes care of his body, the way he prepares for the game and the kind of player he is, I think he'll be here for quite a while more and playing at the high level."

    Dallas knows it will need a great effort from everyone on the defensive side when the Cowboys host the 49ers on Sunday just to give Tony Romo and the offense a shot to make it a game.
