Saints head coach summarizes first week of club's OTA's
Opening Statement:


“We finished up our first of three (weeks of) organized team activities today. The players will be basically off besides the rookies until next week and we start off the minicamp on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the following week we’ll pick back up with the OTA’s.”


Can you talk about the difference in your feelings last May and this May?


“It’s different. We’re a more experienced team. It’s been a shorter offseason. With that challenge, we’ve tried to push some of the dates back. We’re all anxious to see this draft class and the rookies themselves and the additional free agents we signed; how they transition. How they fit into this team. I’d say we’re more experienced and with winning a Super Bowl certainly more confident.”


Having achieved what you did last year, do you feel you’re a better coach?


“I think each year you look to improve. I think that there are benchmarks you look to accomplish and certainly all of us when we get in this whether it’s high school, college or professional want to win a state championship or win a BCS National Championship or a Super Bowl title. Those are goals that you set, but more importantly for yourself, you set those for your team. I think most of us feel that experience through the playoffs and into the Super Bowl is one you have now. You also recognize how difficult the challenge is. I don’t know if that’s answering your question or how you want it answered, but the goal is always to win.”


How much Jammal Brown and Pierre Thomas did you expect them to not be here, specifically with Jammal?


“I think it’s pretty common this time of the year. I think every year there’s a player or two. There hasn’t been any dialogue. In Pierre’s case, I haven’t talked to Pierre, so I don’t want to speak on his behalf, but we’ve had great attendance. I think each year, it’s part of a little bit of the landscape of what we do. It hasn’t been unusual or uncommon. In fact, it’s fairly common for us just as it is for other teams.”

Re: Coach Payton's Thursday OTA Report

Interesting perspective with respect to the Arizona game.

It also does not appear the team is resting on its laurels, but rather remains hungry for another title or two!

TWO DAT!

...and I like it. They just don't give away another one because we got the first one. Payton seems like he's going to make that plain this season. Two in a row would really be sweet?
