Carolina's Ron Rivera and Brandon LaFell Preview Season Finale vs Saints

Do you think that people sort of take Drew Brees and his numbers for granted because people are used to the numbers and what do you think of his performance this season?
“I do agree with you. We do expect him to have those kinds of numbers. The thing that you see is as his guys get healthier and healthier…I know his guys have been nicked up for the most part of the season, he hasn’t had his weapons healthy all the time…Now you’re starting to see it and see that offense click. It’s really becoming a typical Saints offense again. You have to be able to account for not only what Drew does, but the weapons he has.”

Is it unfair that everybody looks at him that way?
“It almost is, but again, Drew’s a product of his own success too. Let’s be honest about that. The guy’s had a terrific career. Ever since getting to the Saints, it’s been getting better and better and the expectations get a little bit out of touch sometimes. People think he’s going to do it all the time. It is hard, because people are really trying to study and learn what the Saints are doing and as people understand a little bit more each year, it’s going to be harder. It’s harder and harder and it’s tough, but Drew really is one of the better ones and is most certainly a class act.”

Have you guys heard from the league office regarding Cam Newton’s actions in Oakland and what are you guys anticipating possibly might happen?
“Honestly we haven’t heard and we’ll react to what’s going on. In light of what happened in the game and all that stuff, I’m just going to react to what they say.”

What did you tell Cam after the incident as your quarterback?
“I just told him he has to be careful. I have an opinion on what I thought happened. I thought he reacted like a lot of other people would have reacted feeling and seeing what I saw, so I’m not going to really get into it. I told him he has to be careful. That’s all.”

How is your team playing right now as the season winds down despite the overall record?
“I think we’re playing better. We figured some things out and are doing some things differently and better.The hardest thing we’ve had to struggle through most is our offensive line. As that group has kind of solidified, we’ve played better. The hard part now is obviously we have a couple more injuries there and trying to patchwork that. Hopefully our guys can step up and we can make some plays.”
