Quarterback Drew Brees says now is the time for the Saints to see the vision and be aware of the opportunity they have before them.

As he prepares to take on the Eagles in the Superdome Sunday, Brees noted that he is aware of the limited time left in his career.  A win would send the Saints to the NFC Championship with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

"I always appreciate these moments, but you never know how many more there are. So you just stay in the moment and enjoy it as much as possible,” Brees said.

He also talked about the impact of Saints Coach Sean Payton bringing piles of cash and the Lombardi Trophy into the locker room.

"I think just showing and trying to give everybody a vision, especially the young guys as to obviously what we're after and the opportunity that we have, especially as the one seed," Brees responded to reporter questions.

He says just knowing that we the Saints control their future and the road to the Super Bowl comes through New Orleans is key. 

"If we work hard enough and we allow that, first things first. This game is the most important thing this season."

Brees said, however, they need to keep their focus on preparation just as they have done week after week.

"Let's just go play ball. It is another game. We always expect to play our best. We always expect to go out and execute to perfection. So let's go do it."
