New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton:

“It was a really hard fought team win for us. We did a lot of things well. Certainly, it wasn’t a perfect game, but I thought we played with very good energy. We had a good week of practice and I thought we played a good team also. We have a lot of respect for those guys and what they were able to accomplish early in the season. We knew we were going to have to play one of our better games. We are dealing with a short week now and we’ll get back to playing another good team.”

On Darren Sproles’ play:

“He (Sproles) is a viable part of what we do so it was nothing elaborate. What happens is that it becomes difficult to put help over Jimmy (Graham) or safety help over someone else without possibly isolating your backs on a linebacker or a safety. Drew (Brees) made a really good play down on the left side in the left corner (of the) end zone. He (Sproles) was third in the read and he really did a good job of settling in that flat area and Drew gave him a really good ball and the timing was good. He is a real smart player and when he ends up open in zones or doing the right thing in man, it is not really a surprise.”

On how dialed in Drew Brees was tonight:

“He is at a really sharp level. He did a good job with his progressions, protected the football well and he was outstanding.”

On making adjustments at halftime:

“Halftime is about 7 1/2 minutes so you’re in here (locker room) and guys are getting something to drink, going to the bathroom and we talk amongst the coaches on a few things we want to hit on. There may be a couple of important things, maybe not. We go through defense, offense and the kicking game and quickly we are back on the field. There were a few things we had seen in the first half that we wanted to pay attention to in the second half. We got a stop defensively and it was important for us to build on that lead.”

On passing a lot in the first half:

“We just thought that was the best way for us to move the football.”

This is the difference that Payton makes. Last year we would have tried throwing more down field to substitute for lack of running game. Payton uses the screen and short passes more. Carmichael will learn this for future games.

They should never run the ball again. That's all.

It's what we did in the Super Bowl when they took away the long pass

Yes I did see that. I think that was because somebody from the press asked Payton a question about what he thought about Peyton Manning and the Broncos. I think it was one of the early questions in the press conference. You couldn't really hear the question, and he totally blew it off, like "okay, NEXT," but after that moment, that was when he got really terse and b*tchy with his answers. Somebody asked him what he thought about Peyton Manning and the Broncos, and he was all like, "WTF, get outta here, I just put on an offensive clinic and racked up 38 points, 4 turnovers, top ten offense and defense, on prime time national TV, my first Monday night game back in coaching, Drew Brees just played one of his best games ever, and you're seriously asking me what I think about Manning and the Broncos?" I think he was p8ssed off, and I don't blame him. The local media here are absurdly clueless. I wouldn't be surprised if it was Jeff Duncan who asked.

I think that question got under his skin but then the next question was something like "yada yada no rushing yada yada pass happy" which he replied basically "we will do what works". Then the next question of "will the pass happy offense be a standard" and then that straw broke the camel's back.
P.S. I think those two questions were from Gus Hapingill, Campingill or whoever.
