Sporting News caught up with Drew Brees during Super Bowl week in New Orleans to discuss how he and the Saints are preparing to wash away a 7-9 missed playoff season.

SN: As a football player and team, how do you move on from a disappointment of what happened in New Orleans last season?
Brees: You absolutely put it behind you and always learn from it. Just as if we had come one game away from the Super Bowl, or won the Super Bowl, you still have to go into next season with, 'What can we draw from last season that will help benefit us in the future?'

SN: Did you see it as a step back from building toward winning another Super Bowl?
Brees: Sometimes success is a bad teacher. Failure, at times, is the best teacher. ... I don't see it as a step back. I see it as a learning or growth experience. It definitely puts a chip on your shoulder and makes you feel like you have something to prove again.
