HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON

(Thoughts on the game…) “First, I would like to give credit to Seattle. Obviously it’s a good win for them. It was a hard fought game, it’s disappointing. Obviously we planned on playing it differently. At the end of it we weren’t able to make enough plays. The one turnover in regards to the first half fumble, resulted in points. We thought it was going to be a field position game, especially with the early weather. I think as the game went on that became a little less of a factor from a wind standpoint. But I’m proud of the way our guys competed. We weren’t able to get it done and we just go from here. It’s tough, its always tough when you get this far and your not able to finish.”

(What was Seattle doing defensively to mix things up…) “Well, Seattle was playing their defense. One of the things they do a very good job with, is they don’t do a lot. They play a single safety zone. They kind of keep the ball in front of them. There patience and they force you to be patience. I will have to go look at the film but I thought we were able to move the ball in spurts, especially in the running game but then there would be something to keep us from taking advantage of that middle field yardage. But Seattle is a tough defense, they have been all season long. They force you to be patience in regards to what we wanted to do, both run and pass.”

(Thoughts on Graham’s late field goal attempt instead of going for it…) “With the numbers (converting a fourth and fifteen), I didn’t consider it.”

(Thoughts on the weather conditions…) “In the first half I felt like it was swirling. The wind was blowing left to right on our sidelines, which was different than the last game. As we were going in to it, it was just off and on. There would be a gust here and there. It was tough conditions for everyone. Credit the plays they were able to make. They made more than we did.”

(What was Seattle able to do to slow Jimmy Graham down…) “Again, they (Seattle) force you to be patience. They play a lot of that deep thirds coverage. We have to find ways to get him more touches early. He obviously grabs a lot of attention, its good on their part.”

What was the game plan you told your team before the game…) “We talked about playing not just the field position battle but understanding the significance of the takeaways and making sure that was something we found a way to correct from the last time.”

Re: New Orleans Saints post-game quotes

Did anyone ask him what was up with Colston trying that lateral instead of going out of bounds?

He said he would have to look at the film.
