Opening statement: “I never thought I would say this but it’s good to see you guys (media). The win that this football team had yesterday shows you the resolve and character of this football team. A divisional opponent on the road with a hostile crowd, down 14 points twice and to come back and win that game on the last play…the play by Malcolm Jenkins followed by the goal line stand. Drew’s (Brees) four touchdowns passes. I had nothing to do with that victory. I just watched it on TV. This football team, their resolve, character, togetherness and accountability continue to grow.”

“I think Aaron Kromer did a phenomenal job of keeping this team together through some tough times. He has kept our staff together. We had a little bit of a rocky start. You never know how the season is going to go because every season takes on a life of its own. He has kept it together and kept our team together. Our hats are off to Aaron.”

“I saw (Sean) Payton briefly after the San Diego game. We talked about family. I got to see his son Connor. That was the extent of it. I got to see Mickey Loomis and sat with him in Mr. Benson’s box when Drew broke the record.”

What did you do to fill the void of not having football for seven weeks?

“There is nothing you can do to fill this void. At the end of the day, my wife (Linda) should be nominated for the Ed Block Courage award. My wife is a great mother and wife, but she really became a great friend to me over this time. I did some work with the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund with the wounded warriors. I was able to speak a couple of times to my University – Towson, even before we played LSU. I spent time in LaPlace speaking with the flood victims there. I talked to Tulane’s football team. I stayed as busy as I could for as long as I could. I know I looked at my watch and the calendar a lot.”

How did you watch games when you were away? Did you watch as a fan or did you still find yourself analyzing the games?

“I am going to be perfectly honest with you – because I wasn’t with the team, I don’t know what gameplan was put in, I couldn’t anticipate the play calling – I agonized over it. It’s hard to go through. I have been with these guys for seven years. I care very deeply, as Sean (Payton) does, for this football team. When you are not there on gameday with the guys you respect and love…it was a challenge.”
