New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton
Media Availability
Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Can you talk about this week for your team?

“From a schedule standpoint, we had planned ahead of time kind of treating today much life a Tuesday where they are in lifting and watching tape. Tomorrow will be our Wednesday. That is something we had planned regardless of whether we flew back after the game or flew back the next morning. It is just something we have done when we played on a west coast trip and came back and play a Sunday night game after it has been flexed. So it is a little further away. I think from a schedule standpoint, we should be fine. I think it is important to have that time (off) from your last game to when you first start practicing. We have kind of done this before. We will treat tomorrow much like a Wednesday, obviously Friday much like a Thursday and get a little bit more work done on Saturday than we normally might.”

What did you see after re-watching this game?

“It is what I said afterwards; there are a lot of things we have to improve on. Credit Seattle, they played a great game. We did a lot of things that kept us from winning and I think in a lot of areas. It wasn’t just one area. Offensively we struggled to find any rhythm, any time of possession. Defensively when we needed to get off the field we couldn’t. they made the plays they needed to and look, it was clear we didn’t play up to our standards and yet, like I said, we didn’t do a good enough job coaching, playing. We will get those corrections made quickly here and get ready for another real good team.”

Can you talk about the challenges of playing Cam Newton?

“His versatility (is a threat), (and) he is very athletic. He is strong. They are one of the, probably one, if not the top team on fourth down conversions, (and) short yardage conversions. Not only he is a very good passer, but he is someone now that does a very good job of extending plays. He does a very good job of deciding when to run and when to look for the throw down the field. There is a difference. Some guys will scramble the run and some guys will scramble to throw. I think he is very confident with either option. I think he’s very dedicated and has improved just as you have seen his growth especially in our division. You have seen him grow with confidence and you have seen the players around him playing with that same confidence. There are a lot of things that he brings to the table that make it very difficult to defend.”

Re: Quotes from Sean Payton's conference call on Wednesday, Decemeber 4

The point that Cam has matured somewhat this year is well taken ... he still acts like a bit of a diva, but he doesn't let it affect his game as previously and his team can trust him.

That's gonna' be the key to the game, IMO. Get some Cam-on-Cam crime going on and cut the head off the snake, so to speak, .
