Aaron Kromer took the short trip from a quiet locker room to a lectern Sunday afternoon for his first postgame question-and-answer session as interim coach of the New Orleans Saints.

It wasnít the trip Kromer was anticipating when he was named to replace interim coach Joe Vitt, who is serving a six-game suspension for his role in the teamís bounty scandal.

But unlike other inexperienced coaches ó who might not have known what to say after watching his team slog through a 40-32 season-opening loss to the Washington Redskins ó Kromer didnít mince his words.

Frustrating was one of the first words to come out of his mouth, and he quickly added that the teamís rabid fans deserved better for the long-awaited season opener.

Several minutes later, he began his final statement by saying the entire team needs to look in the mirror and ask what every coach and player needs to do to get better before Sundayís game at Carolina.

Uhmmm.........straight talk isn't going to cut it. Motivational speeches? Now that's more like it. Getting in players faces and forcing them to do better is definitely more like it. Mellow ain't going to cut it.

That's pretty straight talking.

Look. Neither Payton or Kromer play in these games. The players are the same ones who won 13 games last year. They just need to remember that.

Re: Saints coach Aaron Kromer has straight talk after loss

I think this should be a learning experience. They all have to look within them selves and understand...Payton isn't here to pick you up when your down or light a fire under you. ALL OF THEM from the coaches on down need to be accountable, for their individual play and their attitude without SP being there to MAKE the be accountable for those things. These coaches know the system but they arent Sean Payton. And its clear that sunday that fact FINALLY slapped them in the face. Now its time for them to look within themselves and do their job. Don't try to do too much to compensate just stick to you assignments and stay emotionally balanced.
