How surprising was last night with how many yards the Broncos were gaining on you guys?

“It was frustrating because I felt like we had a solid gameplan going in. We came out in the first half and for the most part played great defense. When we came out in the second half, we couldn’t get anything stopped.”

Moving forward, what needs to change? What can you guys do differently to have a better product out there defensively?

“From what I caught from the film, when plays are presented you have to make them. I had an interception that I should have made. Tackling out on the perimeter was a big thing and the pass rush. We need to improve that and then as a defense we will be better.”

What was it like to have Jonathan Vilma back in the starting lineup?

“He was back in the lineup in Tampa so it was just like any other game. It’s always good to have him out there. You can’t have too many good football players out on the field at once.”

Do you have feel like all of the defensive players are on the same page?

“I came in this morning with Jonathan and we watched the film. You can’t question the effort from these guys. We are all together but we have to come together as a group even more as everyone is taking their shots at us. We know what we are capable of doing and we have to start executing. No more excuses and just play Saints football.”

How hard was it to watch that film this morning?

“It was tough. I am my worst critic and like I said I should have had that interception. There are a few others plays I wish I could take back and would have made. I know that’s how other guys feel too. They wish they could take a few plays back but that’s how it goes. You can’t get those plays back. The only thing that you can do is improve this week and play better this Monday.”

Where do you feel the defense needs help in? Is it personnel, coaching or motivation?

“I definitely don’t think it’s motivation because this is the National Football League. Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays - that’s enough motivation for anyone. Nothing is taken for granted. It’s our job to stop them and we have to do that. As far as coaching and the personnel, that’s not my area to critique. I am a player and whatever people above me think that is a question for them.”

Lofton - "you can't have too many good players on the field"

Well that's ironic because I couldn't see any on our team

Lofton didn't come out and say it was the coaching or the talent but he sure didn't jump to their aid.

Saintfan shares his thoughts:

Sucked pretty hard. They gave up before the end of the 2nd quarter. As a fan I was able to disengage because it was so bad it was funny. It's like that bad movie you've seen a hundred times. Whenever you find it on TV you put the remote down. When it's over you ask yourself why you watched it again. It's just SO bad you can't help it...
