Saints Coach Sean Payton

的t痴 hard to come up here and talk about the significance of that group of guys in the locker room and the significance of this win. I知 proud of them. I知 proud of our fans. I知 proud of the hard work it took to get us to this spot. It痴 a pretty special feeling. Any Questions?

(on defense) 典here was a lot of momentum shifts in that game. Just after the game ended I had a chance to visit with (Brett) Favre for about five minutes, and I致e never seen two quarterbacks compete and two defenses hang in there, and the offensive lines play the way these did today. I tip my hat to Minnesota. You had two teams that played their hearts out. I知 glad we were able to win and I知 proud of just having a chance to coach these guys in a game like this. Garrett (Hartley) hit a big kick obviously, for us and we just kept fighting. The momentum shifted back and forth and we just kept battling and it was a heck of a game.

(on what he told Hartley) 的 just told him there痴 a little fleur de lis up there right between both uprights, and I said why don稚 you see if you can hit this fleur de lis dead center. We belong, you are here for a reason and you are going to hit it through. He has just been real consistent for us and obviously it was a big kick.

(on the significance to this organization) 的t痴 hard (to explain). Four years ago, there were holes in this roof. The fans in this city and this region deserve it. Like I said before, I知 just proud to be a part of it, to be part of something that is so special for this city and well deserved.

(on comparing now to when he first came to New Orleans) 典here are a handful of coaches and players that were on that first team, and I would say to those players and coaches that aren稚 here now, they池e just as much a part of this. They know who they are. I can稚 go through every one of the names, but there are a lot of people who came when no one else wanted to come. There a lot of coaches and a lot of players that aren稚 with us now, and I appreciate them.

(on fourth down call in OT) 的知 trying to think of the call, did we go for it? We weren稚 close enough for a field goal. We called everyone over and said, 蘇ey, look we致e come this far. Pierre (Thomas) ran behind those two guys and did a great job of getting the yard and a half we needed. It was significant.

(on the takeaways) 的 know this; we came up with the turnover margin pretty significantly. I think five-to-one, so credit Minnesota at five-to-one and we win by a field goal. That痴 unusual.

(on Pierre Thomas) 滴e played hard. He battled. The screen play early in the game to answer their touchdown was significant when they went up seven-nothing it was kind of like last week. He made a bunch of big plays. He痴 been a big part of what we致e done so I知 happy with the way he played.

(on playing the Colts and Peyton Manning in the Superbowl) 滴e痴 a special player. We had a chance to watch some of his game today and then we turned it off. The four best teams played today, and the first half of that game, the little bit that we got to watch, we saw two AFC teams playing their hearts out. It痴 a credit to Indianapolis and Peyton (Manning). Its been a while since the number one seeds met and we are excited to be in this game and look forward to the challenge.
