New Orleans Saints Cornerback Jabari Greer
Post-Scrimmage Media Availability
Saturday, August 3, 2013

Are you encouraged by the performance of the defense today?

Yes, this is the first time we had live contact and the amount of turnovers and the amount of contact we had on the quarterback was a good indication of where we are. But we realized that we have a long way to go. It was a good day today. We are going to enjoy it. We are going to take some time off tonight, get back in our books, spend time with our families, and get back to it on Monday.

How is your relationship with Chris Carr versus a rookie cornerback?

I remember the first time that Chris came in. He walked in the locker room and I immediately knew who he was being a guy who has a similar story as mine. Ive kept up with him throughout the league, throughout my career. And seeing him walk in there I just knew we were getting a quality player. I knew what kind of player he was going to be, so for him to come out here and have a day like he had, Im happy for him because he is such a great guy in the locker room, a guy of character and is really a smart guy. Hes the type of guy that our upper level management brings in. The type of relationship I have with Chris is awesome. I definitely pick his brain and I talk to him, but mainly we talk about life and I feel like we are kindred spirits.

I think you guys had five sacks today, is it nice to see the pass rush?

Yes, I think that we did a good job rushing the passer today and getting some pressure on them. It makes it so much easier for our secondary and anytime that we can get the amount of pressure that we did today, not only makes my job easier, but it provides excitement for the fans. Most importantly I am glad they get to see our defense react and be aggressive the way we were today.

Can you talk about the big plays the defense made today and how it puts the offense in a tougher predicament?

Yes, it does. It presents a different opportunity for the offense. Anytime you can get them in third and long it works out for us. We can play different coverages and we can get a little more aggressive on the (pass) rush. We were able to get us some long yardage situations. I think we had a good day, but ultimately we realized that when Monday comes along, no one is going to remember today and its going to be another day of hard work and the offense is going to come out gunning again as consistent as they always are. We are going to relish today, we are going to enjoy it, but realize when Monday starts this means nothing.

So unexpected... After last season I never would have thought that our defense would be kicking our offenses ass today.

I believe he's trying to say "I hope our offense isnt going into the tank".

I'm excited for the D, but I also know that Drew can't get sacked 5 times every week for very long. I'm definitely not sold on the O-line.

Lets wait and see how this D does against outside competition (K.C. Chiefs coming up first). We should have a much better idea of what we have, especially after the third preseason game.

I'm excited about Chris Carr. We need youth but we also need experience.
