New Orleans Saints Postgame Quotes

#9 Quarterback Drew Brees

RE: First Drive

That was a great way to start the game. Obviously, we feel good about our openers. We went out and executed very well. I think we were three-for-three on third downs. It resulted in a touch down which is a great way to start the game.

RE: 0-2 start

Itís difficult. Especially since obviously, expectations are a lot better than that. Itís been two hard fought games. Unfortunately, we have gotten down in both of them to the point that I feel like we were trying to claw back in the fourth quarter. Typically when you get a close game at the end, itís back and forth. I felt we were playing catch up these last two games. You look at this game, and you just look statistically, we rushed for 160 yards on 27 carries so a 6.0 yards per carry, which is phenomenal. You look at that stat alone, and say we won the game. Better than 50 percent on third down. Unfortunately I had the turnover early that resulted in a touchdown for them which is a huge play in this game. It canít happen. But then red zone efficiency, and all those 500 yards total offense, if you look at the stats offensively, it should have been a game we won. Unfortunately, as I think back, there are probably six or seven plays that I can think of right now that if it had gone our way, just one or two of them, I think the outcome of this game is completely different. Typically that is what it comes down to is six or seven plays, did you make it or didnít you. Unfortunately, we didnít.

RE: What needs to change

We trust our preparation. We trust our approach. Unfortunately, we have done some things these last two games that have set us back, prevented us from winning. The important thing is recognizing what those things are and having an answer for them. I feel like we have that. Now itís a matter of going out and actually getting a win, catching a break, having one go your way, and get on a win streak. We have done a great job of doing that here in the past. There is always adversity. Unfortunately it has come to us a little bit sooner than we expected with the 0-2 start. There is no doubt in my mind that we have the right type of guys in our locker room and coaches and scheme to overcome this.

"we did some things that stopped us winning"

You mean like throwing the ball to the opposite team?

The defense allowed too many big plays, 3rd AND 4th down conversions.

Don't put this one on Drew.

50/50 on both of them as far as spreading blame

Drew has not been great this season - but I don't put any of this on his shoulders.

There is NO REASON for losing games that you score 32 and 27 points in - unless, of course, your defense is HORRIBLE and couldn't stop a junior college offense from racking up 35+

Drews accuracy is effected by two things:

1. Pending child birth
2. Pressure in his face

Our pass blocking has been weak. Receivers have been inconsistent aside from Graham and Moore and even those guys have had a couple unusual drops. We just aren't clicking 100% offensively and defensively we are about 10%.

O-line, Defense, lack of adjustments, bad throws. Whole team is off, it is what it is. We have a long way to go this season, we will just peak when it matters.

They are lacking the mental edge they have had in the past.
Let's hope it comes back this week.

what a canned, unemotional politically correct pile of donkey doo. I'm waiting for someone to drop some f bombs, get fired up and actually spit something into the microphone. i'm tired of the canned, "ok, yeah well we need to work harder, make less mistakes and do less things that make us lose." what kind of horsecrap is that? Let's go, how about let's start with, "DO YOUR JOB", or let someone else try. Once in a while ya just gotta let it out, know what I mean?
