Joe Vitt: "The Guys are Excited for Saturday"
 
1 Attachment(s)
Opening Statement: “The week has gone along as we would do the regular season. Today was third down so the emphasis was on nickel. Our guys responded well. We had our third good practice in a row, so we will continue to build, try to get down to our final 53, and go through the evaluation process. We had another day of good work.”

How much have the injuries at linebacker slowed down the defense?
“The defense has been implemented. The install is over. We are fine tuning it now. The linebackers that are down have already been through the installation. They are not working right now, so their angles and their timing (are what they are missing on-field work on). If this would have been a regular season game, Curtis Lofton would have played this week. This is part of the game, it just is. We have to work through it, and we were fine today.”

Were you able to work on tackling this week?
“Yes, two days in a row of the main emphasis.”

Do you expect to see improvement?
“That is why we work on it. There is an expectancy level.”

How does that work in practice?
“We had full pads the first two days (of the week). (You emphasize) Proper angles to the ball, proper fit, see the target, your eyes are over your thighs and then you wrap up.”

Are they hitting each other?
“They are hitting each other. That is why we have the pads on.”

Was it a lack of fundamentals or a lack of effort on Friday night?
“Fundamentals. We don’t have a lack of effort around here.”

Doesn't Coach Vitt come across as a little harsh in his interviews?

Yeah i've noticed the same thing

I watched an interview with him on Nola.com when they asked him about injuries and he was just giving them one word answers

He's kinda like coach payton in that respect

He reminds me of Bill Parcel's using few words and making it less interesting to listen to him during interviews.

I find it kinda refreshing. If it were me, I'd be giving a whole lotta kiss my ass answers too. It's not like the Saints really owe the media any kind of courtesy or anything.
