What are your thoughts on Coach Payton making Terron Armstead the starting left tackle for the Carolina game?

“(I’m) Excited for him. He has continued to improve each and every day, obviously running the scout team. But, throughout training camp and into the season here, I think he’s just been biding time and waiting for his opportunity. That opportunity came along for Jermon Bushrod when Jammal Brown got hurt. It came along for Zach Strief. I remember during his rookie season when Jammal Brown went down one game, and Strief had to step in and play against one of the better pass-rushers in the league at the time that week. (It is a) Great challenge for him, a great opportunity. I’m excited for him. I’ve got a lot of confidence in him. He was excited as well.”

Is there any way to describe the discrepancy between playing in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and playing on the road this season?

“Well, obviously we’re not very satisfied, certainly, or happy with our performance on the road as of late. I thought we played well on the road earlier in the season, we just haven’t been able to put it together the last few times. The only way I know to fix it is the process throughout the week: your preparation in regards to knowing the game plan cold and going out there and executing it in practice and visualizing success, visualizing yourself in the moment – wherever you’re going, whatever the conditions are going to be. I find that when you do that, in many cases you go out and you play well and what you visualize is what happens. That’s the way we’re approaching it. I felt like we had a great practice today and we’ll continue to just kind of hone in on the process.”

How much of the road struggle is a mental thing? Can it be a mental thing?

“Well, like I said, if you know that you have prepared yourself as well as you could possibly prepare yourself, then you go out and good things happen. At times are you going to maybe have a tough stretch? Yes. I think every team does, in some regard, throughout the course of their season, and ours just happens to be the way that we’ve played on the road the past couple of games. Certainly it’s motivation to go out and play extremely well.”

Do you think the road struggles are more of the adjustments by the defense or a lack of execution on (the offense’s) part?

“Well I think that it has been, for the most part, execution here for us over the last two weeks if I’m just looking at Seattle and St. Louis. There have been some times where you don’t, you know…they are really very different games, Seattle and St. Louis. Seattle felt like we just did never really get a rhythm going. I felt like we had a lot of good drives in the St. Louis game, they would just end in a turnover or no points, a missed field goal, or a missed opportunity when we maybe had a chance to score and there was a penalty, or whatever it might’ve been. But in many cases, that’s ‘Why did you not convert the third down? Why did you not score the touchdown? Why did the drive not continue?’ In many cases, it’s lack of execution.”

We get this done against the kitty cats.. again.

I just don't see two consecutive weeks of poor play by us. I'm certain Sean has a good week of game planning and preparation for this one.

Coach can't do as poorly of game planning as last week......hopefully.

"Alright guys, let's go out and show these Panthers who we are!"

"We're playing the Rams this week coach."

"Dafuq?"

IMO, the loss to the Rams was more on the players than the coaches or game planning.

Starting Armstead could be a good decision, or it could be a bad decision, either way it was the right decision. It became apparent to us that we have a problem at LT, Armsteads ability decides whether we or not draft a LT in high rounds next year. I believe he has the goods

For the first time in a few weeks I am feeling optimistic about our chances for this week based on what changes I have seen coach make. I think he is serious and will not tolerate another loss much less back to back losses.
