Saints-Panthers Postgame Quotes
 
Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints ● Sunday, October 3, 2010

NEW ORLEANS HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON

(Opening Statement) “It was a hard fought win. First, we need to give credit to Carolina. Obviously, those guys played hard and these always go down to the fourth quarter. We made just enough plays to get the win and that is what is most important. We got a stop there at the end. I though Usama’s (Young) play on the run play for minus yardage was significant and backed them out of field goal range. The drive at the end coming off the five yard line was significant. Although it wasn’t always perfect, it was a good win.”

(On being 3-1, but still not having breakout offensive performance) “We are just trying to win each week. If you look back on the back end of last season you will see a lot of hard fought games also. The first thing would be a couple of turnovers in the game and when you have those you are probably not going to have your best scoring output. One of the turnovers came at the one yard line, the other came at the fringe as we are getting into the red zone so those are things that can prevent you from scoring a lot more points in the game. Fortunately, it was the first time in awhile that we lost the turnover battle and still won the game.”

(On decision to kick Carney) “He practiced well and he kicked well in his workout. We felt comfortable with the week he had, those are the main things.”

(On if the plan was to run the ball heavily today) “We knew they do a good job defensively out of the seven, seven and a half man front and so we felt like we needed to establish a running game and I was pleased we were able to do that. It was one of our more consistent outings in that way and I thought that was important. I thought it helped us pertaining to our third down conversions. There were a few third and longs, but there were not many.”

(On Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory) “They played hard. They are both relatively new to our program and they were a big part of the win.”

Rest the rest here...

I really liked what I saw out of Betts. He looked to be clicking w/ Brees. I also thought we made significant strides in third down completion percentage.
