QB #9 DREW BREES

“(The) third and fourth quarter were pretty invisible, in terms of never really feeling like we could get any tempo going or rhythm, getting first downs to keep drives going. We got those two turnovers in the third quarter, (and) capitalized on both those with touchdowns, which was great. Then we get (another) drive going, and (it ends with a) turnover.

“The entire fourth quarter just felt like it was played on our end of the field. Every time we got the ball, it was inside our 10-yard line. We were backed up. We got ourselves into some third-and-long situations. We know better. We just weren’t real good on first and second down. We’ve got to find a way to fix that.”

(on if he has ever have that many consecutive poor possessions) “I’m not sure, but that’s not our standard. That’s not what we’re used to. That’s going to get fixed.”

(on whether the Chiefs did something different in second half) “No, they really didn’t. We just weren’t able to really get anything going. That’s all I can say, really.”

(on if there were there drops in some second- and third-down situations?) “There’s a little bit of everything. We all could have done things a little bit better, just to keep the drive alive and convert the third down or get us in a better situation. We just put ourselves in a lot of bad situations today.”

(on if there is a comparison to some other lows) “I know the type of team we have. I know the type of team we want to be and that we can be. We’re not playing anywhere near that level right now and it’s resulted in an 0-3 start. It’s very frustrating and disappointing, and yet there’s no doubt in my mind we’re going to turn this thing around. I don’t know what that’s going to result in, in terms of how many wins, playoffs or whatever, but we’re going to be a great team. This team.”

Same stuff I heard him say after last weeks loss

Re: New Orleans Saints Postgame Quotes

It's not just Drew; the whole team including the staff need to get together and figure this **** out! If we're going to lose, atleast figure out how to look respectful doing it.

That second half was rough on both sides of the ball

Re: New Orleans Saints Postgame Quotes

Read between the lines. They're concerned, and Drew took a veiled shot at Roger talking about Sean and halftime adjustments. They don't know how to fix it though. They can't point to anything. I haven't give up in spite of my attitude after today's game, but I'm getting close. I have a feeling they are too.

Re: New Orleans Saints Postgame Quotes

Didn't ya'll here? We were fixing our problems and would have a much better game against a conventional offense like the Chiefs. I guess now we're going to fix our problems and go on the road to Green Bay lol.

I didn't buy that argument. We have played completely poorly from the first snap of the first game. We can see that other teams have handled those two unconventional QBs.

We are 0-3 and we've been beaten on defense in just about every way a defense can be beaten. Deep balls. Short attacks. Running end around. Running up the gut. Screens. Crossing routes. Fade routes. Favorable down and distance. Unfavorable down and distance. With the lead and without the lead. You name it and we have been beaten by it, and not by teams necessarily good at what they do. Also-rans.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
