After the first two weeks, are you guys putting emphasis on putting pressure on the quarterback?
We put an emphasis on everything. Its not one group like the d line against the quarterback. Linebackers, safeties, corners, were all in this together and we all have to improve.

Are two sacks by the front seven in the first two weeks, something Steve Spagnuolo has talked about with the defense?
Yes, we cant have quarterbacks just sitting back there, so its going to be all of us together putting pressure on the quarterback, whether its the front four or on blitzes.

Is it better for you guys this week in that you face a more traditional quarterback?

You have a more conventional offense now, so we can start playing more of our defense without worrying as much about the quarterback running, although (Matt) Cassel is athletic and he can run. So, its going to be exciting to go out there and play against a conventional offense.

Do you expect them to put in some read options?
It wouldnt surprise me after the past couple weeks, it wouldnt surprise me if they do some of that. But were prepared and we have to go out and improve.

Youre new here, the teams 0-2 and Atlanta is 2-0. Do you feel regrets in your decision to sign with the Saints?
No, when I made my decision to come here, I knew the team that we have and what were going to be. No, the Falcons are playing great ball, I have a lot of friends (there) and Im happy for them, but Im still happy with my decision. Im going to continue to get better with this team. Well be okay.

Glad Curtis decided to come play down here, he's one of the best looking things we got on that side of the ball.

Lofton = tackle factory

Continue to improve? I'd settle for starting to improve, because this is the worst Saints defense I've seen in many moons. Embarrassing.

What are you trying to say? You have more points than our offense? Or just like our defense, you cant stop for anything?
