Super Bowl-or-bust Saints have plenty to improve on

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Saints coach Sean Payton had no interest in emphasizing the positives in a thrilling 48-46 loss that came down to the final seconds against the team with the best record in the NFC.

"We can't kid ourselves," Payton said Monday after analyzing video of New Orleans' loss to San Francisco. "We have to play a lot better. We have to coach a lot better."

That tends to be the message when it's Super Bowl or bust.
