Coach pleased with consistency on both sides of ball
New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton held his weekly press conference on Monday morning following the club's 34-3 win at the Carolina Panthers heading into their week 10 bye. Payton reviewed yesterday's win, evaluated where the club stands heading into the bye at 6-3 and gave an injury report. Below is a transcript:



Opening Statement:



“Schedule wise, these guys will be in tomorrow. A handful were in for treatment today, but we’ll look at this game and be meeting on it. There will be a weightlifting session, open locker room at noon and then I’m going to get them out of here for a while. After watching the game tape, I felt they played with good energy. It wasn’t perfect. There were a lot of things that will still be important for us to look at and clean up, but I did think we played with effort. I was encouraged with how we played defensively. Field position was something that was noticeable as you watched the tape. A lot of that game was played on their side of the field and we were able to do that with the kicking game. I thought Thomas (Morstead) did a good job of keeping those guys pinned back. When a mistake’s made, it’s exaggerated then. The interception Jabari (Greer) has ends up resulting in a touchdown. That was encouraging. We ran the ball. I think it’s a good defensive front. Statistically they’ve played well throughout the year despite their record and it was a good division win.”



Would you attribute your defense’s play yesterday to the scheme or also due to the fact that they were missing so many players on offense due to injury?



“They had to. We’ve had to as well. Yesterday was no different. Malcolm (Jenkins) came out with a shoulder. We’ve had to insert players through the course of the season. When your running back (Jonathan) Stewart goes down and then the quarterback, that affects you because those guys have probably taken the bulk of the reps during the course of the week in the practices leading up the game and I think more than anything trying to stay focused on the specific things you can control defensively to play well despite the level of play of your opponent, I think that was something that was important. And I thought that was something we did through the course of the game, regardless of what the score was early and regardless of what the score was late.”
