a a Payton, Hartley, Vilma & Shanle in focus
The Saints met with the media on Monday to recap the Falcons game and preview their NFC South contest against the Panthers next Sunday.

WAKE UP CALL?: Head coach Sean Payton was asked Monday if he thought Sunday’s 27-24 overtime loss to the Falcons would serve as a wakeup call for his team.

“It’s not that they weren’t attentive,” said Payton. “It just reminds you of how fine a line there is between winning and being just average. Week in and week out, you have to do those specific things well if you want to win and we just didn’t do them as well yesterday. If you try to take something from it, it’s important that when we leave here today we can look closely at the things that we didn’t do as well, that we have to improve on, not sugarcoat it. To look closely and see that these are the things that we have to improve on if we hope to be a good football team this year. Are we capable of doing those things? I think so.”

HARTLEY RECEIVES SUPPORT: Garrett Hartley said a number of friends, family and other NFL kickers reached out to him last night after he missed a 29-yard field goal in overtime. Hartley said he is his “No. 1 critic” and is ready to get back on to practice field to “improve anyway I can.”

“As they say, sometimes you are the hero and some times you are the goat,” said Hartley. “I think last night I was wearing the horns. As much as of a disappointment it was for me, I still have to come back out here, learn from it and move forward.”

I think Hartley has handled this rather good and if he learns from it it will make him better in the end. I can guarantee that no athlete likes to be int the spotlight for a reason like this. I bet he'll work his ass of for this not to happen again.

If Hartley was being truthful about being "his own #1 critic" he would have left his cleats in the locker room and never looked back. I mean, it was a 29 yard FG to beat the Falcons after all!!!
