Sean Payton talks Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday, September 11

How much better is Tampa Bay’s secondary when you look at this year’s team compared to last year’s?

“I know they spent a lot of time in the offseason with the additions of a couple of players. It’s week two, so it’s hard to measure just off of one game. Clearly, when you add the two types of players they’ve added, (Dashon) Goldson and (Darrelle) Revis are two very good players we have played before with other teams. Those are two key additions.”

What makes Goldson special? We know Revis gets the publicity.

“He has good instincts. He’s a real good tackler. He has range to cover on the back end. He does a lot of things well.”

What makes (Josh) Freeman go?

“One of the things with Josh has always been his ability to extend plays. It’s been tough for us. At times you’ve seen him step up or flush, and what might have been a three to five yard gain might be a lot longer than that. Being good in our rush lanes are important. He has a real strong arm and real good command of their offense.”

How would you assess Kenny Stills’s performance in his first regular season game?

“Overall, I thought he handled his first regular season game pretty well. We’re still working on some of the specifics as it refers to blocking within the running game, but he’s pretty smart and knows where to get aligned. I thought (he made) a big play for us at the time. I thought overall he played pretty well.”

Does the fact that the Buccaneers defense struggled against the Jets and their rookie quarterback give you any extra hope for this game?

“It’s just one film that we look at. Some of the looks are different. The Jets were in and out of some wildcat, substitutional offenses. Any time you play someone this early in the season, you don’t have as much tape and you have to go back and look at last year and try to put together what you think is going to be the way they defend you, and be able to adjust midstream during the game as it changes.”

John Jenkins was thrust into the lineup when Brodrick Bunkley went down. Can you talk about how he played?

“The plan was to play all of those tackles inside a lot. Obviously he had more snaps with Bunkley’s injury, but he’s one of those guys that each week we plan on playing. I think it’s important that you have a rotation for those guys up front. Overall, he handled that role well.”

Can Akiem Hicks play the nose tackle position if he has to?

“Yes. We have flexibility. All during training camp we played a lot of those guys both at that position and at the end position.”

Josh Freeman is the 4th worst QB in our division.

Luke McCown looked pretty good this pre season. He might give Freeman a run for his money on that 4th spot. :)

This game has the ability to be a real nail biter. Or it could get really ugly

The Bucs have no discipline. I see this game getting out of hand early once they have to abandon the run which they will. Facemask, PI, roughing the passer...they will do it all day.

Freeman is a crybaby, first time we hit him he will get his panties in a bunch and get flustered

We have to take advantage of any errant passes he throws, because he will throw some

If the game does get dirty the Saints just need to make sure they keep their cool and D'ONT start giving away stupid penalties.
