On the play of the Saint’s Jimmy Graham

“You know, I don’t know what his productivity was. He was targeted. He’s a tough guy to stop. You can see how they use him. They use him as a wide receiver out on the perimeter. They use him inside. Right now, with Lance Moore, one of the go-to guys certainly on their team and he stepped up today and made significant plays obviously, in this game.”

On the Saint’s touchdown screen play near the end of the first half

“They did a good job. They had built a wall right down the left side of the numbers. The got the block on, they got our corner covered up. Just a really well executed play on their part.”

On the defense’s play

“Yeah again, our defense was packaged around playing against a quarterback that is very difficult to defend and an offense that’s difficult to defend. We thought if we gave them a long field it would make it much more difficult for them to score. We did that. You saw what Drew [Brees] did, he checked the ball down a ton today. We tried to keep everything underneath. Again, I think as I said from the start, the continuity part of the football is that our offense can’t be on the field for 23 minutes, or 24 minutes, and allow our defense to be on the field that long. That’s really what led to them moving the ball a little bit better in the second half, for some of the second half, because they had been on the field too long early in the game.”

On Alshon Jeffery’s play

“We just called plays, against the coverages we were getting. We felt like we had a bead on the coverages and what they were doing. I thought Jay did a good job of just going to the open guys. We build plays for everybody in this game to beat the coverages we’d seen. We were able to execute more to Alshon this particular day.”

Brandon Marshall, WR

On how frustrating the Saint’s coverage was

“It really has nothing to do with them. We’ve been seeing that coverage for the past few weeks. I can do a better job of getting myself open versus that coverage. We just have to make adjustments. We know teams are going to try to take me out of the game, but I have faith in the guys in this locker room and the coaches upstairs that we’re going to do what’s best for the team. We just have to bounce back.”

On how confusing the Saint’s defense was, particularly for the offensive line

“It took the first quarter for our offensive line to settle in. Once they did, they made the adjustments and we started seeing things better. As far as in back end, we knew exactly what they were going to do. For the most part, each team coming in, they’re going to make the other guy beat us.”
