A little more than 12 hours after their season-opening game against the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer headed to the office for one of those days coaches love to hate.

After a 40-32 loss to the Redskins in his head coaching debut as a fill-in for suspended coaches Sean Payton and Joe Vitt, Kromer already knew in the pre-dawn hours what kind of day that it was going to be: “Overreaction Monday.”

Kromer explained Wednesday the backlash that comes with expectations that aren’t met happens on a weekly basis all around the NFL, not just in New Orleans.

Like in the Saints’ surprising loss to the Redskins.

Excited fans eager to forget all the talk about the bounty scandal certainly expected more from an offense that set an NFL record last season with 7,474 total yards and a defense that should be improved under Steve Spagnuolo.

But they looked anything but that. The Saints struggled on both sides of the ball, uncharacteristically so on offense, and played on their heels most of the afternoon.

Hence, the overreaction Kromer referred to.

“Half the teams lost and half the teams won,” he said. “Every team that won was crowned a Super Bowl champion and every team that lost wasn’t going to make the playoffs. We know that is far from the truth.”

Man, isn't that the truth.

Overreaction? I am not so sure. We have to see how the next couple of games play out under interim interim coach Kromer.

Re: Mickles: Saints hope for no more overreaction

This is the hand we are dealt and the team has to react and play well against the Panthers. Also remember the Skins played out of their skulls Sunday and our tract record is not good against them.

There's still some positives to scoring 32 points in a week the team 'struggled' and 'played on it's heels'. Any other team in the NFL has a game like that and they come away with 10pts.

Kromer may have the most intelligent comments to the press of any coach I have seen.

He's right you know.

I can't count the amount of people on here that said the season was over when we lost to the skins.

I just wish he would use some of that intelligence and engage the refs and players during games. I never saw him say a word to anyone during the skins game. Leadership and communication go hand-and-hand, can't have one without the other.

Damn, it was his first game as a head coach. Let him get acclimated and figure it out. It has to be a learn as you go thing...

I would hate for RG3 to get really really good and then we have to face them in like a wildcard game or something. They seem to have our number.
