Carmichael and Williams Preview Bucs Contest
Is the feeling this week different than the prior week?
“Absolutely. It wasn’t good enough. On Monday we looked at the film and we were on to the next week. It’s time to get better this week.”

After the interceptions that Drew Brees threw the last time against Tampa Bay, is there anything you tell him going into this week?
“I think every week, you know that turnovers are a critical factor in deciding a game. You look at the three interceptions from the last time we played them; one was a tipped ball, one was on a fourth down just trying to make a play and then the other one, you would say it was a good decision. The decision he made was the right one, it was single coverage, and he left the ball a little inside. As an established team, we need to find a way to avoid turnovers.

Dating back from when Jon Gruden was the coach and they ran a slightly different defensive scheme, it seems like Tampa Bay has had success defensively against the Saints. Is there something you can point to specifically?
“I think they’re a fast, physical defense. They rally to the ball and make tackles. They play hard. There’s no doubt they’re going to be fired up for the game. We have to be at our best too.”

Is it true they’re a nemesis for this offense?
“We’ve had some games that haven’t been very good against them. We feel like we have to be consistent week in and week out. It’s going to be a challenge for us this week.”

Were you surprised at how Tanard Jackson played the last time in his first week back?
“We respect him. He’s a great ballplayer. He’s physical and so we were expecting his best for that game.”

Has pressure been a common denominator in when Drew Brees has had some difficulties?
“You go back and there are some you’re going to say were tipped balls. There are some where you would say pressure got to him a little bit. I think that’s a key stat in football. You get some pressure on the quarterback and the throw’s not quite as accurate or he hurries a decision, but Drew’s interceptions this year, it’s a variety.”

With the turnover at the right tackle position, how confident are you in Zach Strief?
“I’m very confident and obviously whatever injury situation we have is coach’s matter to talk with. I’m confident.”
