Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints

Sunday, December 27, 2009

SAINTS HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON

“Obviously, a difficult loss for us. They hung around in the second half and credit them for having the resolve to fight back. We really struggled in the second half offensively. We gave up the big punt return. It’s frustrating, it’s disappointing. We’ll have to bounce back. Obviously, it’ll be a tough one for us, but we get a chance to see how we’ll handle it.

“You want to take care of your inconsistencies. Some of those are more glaring than others. There’s a lot we’ve got to clean up. We’ll get back to work this week. Speaking on behalf of this game, there’s a lot of things we did well early on and some things we didn’t do well later on.

“We did a pretty good job of just hanging in there defensively. We made a big defensive stop in the fourth quarter. We just couldn’t make enough plays. I think it would be a mistake to point just to the kicking game, just to the defense or just to the offense.

“I think in the end, we struggled with some third downs. We didn’t have any penalties in the first half; we had some in the second half. We had the strip-fumble. We’ve got to clean some things up.

“We’re playing for something, so yeah, it’s not like it’s all locked up or decided. We’re still playing for something. I think we said that at the beginning of the week and nothing’s changed today.

(on game-tying TD) “It’s a punt return. We’ve got to get off blocks and cover it and do the fundamentals of covering a punt.

(on Garrett Hartley) “He’s played well for us. He’s been battle tested. I think it’s a mistake if we just point to the missed kick, if we just point to the punt return, if we just point to one specific area. It’s all of our jobs to get it cleaned up.”

“I’ve said this before. In our league, it’s crisis or carnival, ‘cause the stuff in the middle doesn’t sell. Now you hit some adversity. We’ve got to get ready to play a team that’s playing well, Carolina.

“Having to get back to work and play better football, clean up those mistakes. There will be a challenge for us. When you’re going well, it goes pretty smoothly.”

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS PLAYERS

QB #9 DREW BREES

(on loss) “It’s hard to explain it. I guess at this point, not having been able to see the film and some of the things that cost us. We started off fast with 17 straight points. After that, there was a big lull. It’s hard because all you want to do is give yourself a chance to win at the end. In overtime, unfortunately, they get the ball first and it was over.

(on difference after 1st 3 drives) “We got really three possessions in the first half, with the exception of the two-minute at the end. Even on that, we set stopped and it’s maybe six inches. It didn’t feel like we had a lot of possessions in the second half until that two-minute drive.

“These are the types of things that bring your team together and make you stronger.

(pressure?) “I don’t know if I’d call it the pressure mounting. The fact is, we need to play better. I don’t think we’ve played our best football in a while. This is just the type of game we need, going on the road against a divisional opponent that’s playing very well.

“You always find out more about a team when you start facing adversity. In the Sean Payton era here, we’ve faced adversity very well. We’ll always turned them into positives. This is one of those situations where we have the right type of character, the right type of leadership, to handle it very well.

(on 4 games since Patriots game) “What I liked about those last four games was our ability to finish the first two (Washington and Atlanta). Last week, we got down so much and scored two touchdowns and almost scored a third. Today, we had the ball at the end with a chance to win the game.”

K #5 GARRETT HARTLEY

“I felt great going out there. Just an opportunity to win another game and give us home field advantage in the playoffs. I kind of rushed myself a little bit. It was all me, the snap and hold were great; I just rushed myself.

“Knowing I let my team down is the worst thing. It’s definitely humbling. You have to learn from these experiences in order to prevail the next one.”

WR #17 ROBERT MEACHEM

(on last offensive play of regulation) “I was trying my hardest to get in there. I didn’t get in.

(on last two games) “That’s something we’ve got to work on. Start from scratch, see what we did wrong. We’ve just got to take the coaching, the criticism, and go with it.

“A loss is a loss, no matter how you lose it.”

DT #98 SEDRICK ELLIS

“That’s football. You got to hand it to Tampa (Bay). They came out and played good football today and came out with a victory.

(on difference in two halves) “I think they were able to run the ball a little bit better, and that’s something we have to look at and get that fixed.”

DE #91 WILL SMITH

“We shouldn’t have never been in that situation to have it come down to a field goal. We know they have a lot of talent, but I think we came out with a good plan.

(on next week) “I don’t think this changes anything. Every game is important. You have to go out and finish strong.”

CB #22 TRACY PORTER

“We’re not worried about anyone else and what their record is. We’re worried about what our record is. Whatever the Vikings do, they do. The two losses we’ve had, we have to put them behind us and look forward to Carolina.”

hartley probably wouldn't have been put in that position if we could have held onto the ball on the game sealing drive, cept we fumble and let them right back in the game.
