Opening Statement:
“Look obviously that’s a tough game to lose. I just finished telling our players every once in a while you get one of these games where the scores go back and forth and the small details especially when you are in overtime just magnifies any little mistake. I thought we played hard yet it still wasn’t good enough. Credit Atlanta they did a great job today and again it’s a tough way to start but we will bounce back.”

Defensively, obviously Matt Ryan had a great game do you put this on them or was it on the coaches:
“No, listen we don’t put a loss on anybody. That’s just, someone smart told me once you are going to have games where the scores are going back and forth and we need to score one more. That’s a good offense, obviously some real talented players. Yeah, do we want to play better, absolutely and we’ll make the corrections. We lose a game like that as a team.”

Are you discouraged by the play of the defense:
“No, it’s tough when you have a loss like that. There are a lot of plays you look at. You want to do a better job defending, you want to do a better job offensively getting into the red zone.”

Is there anything you tell a guy like (Marques) Colston who’s been so sure-handed:
“He’s won a lot of games for us and when you get in overtime it can appear to be one play, but there are a series of plays throughout the course of the game.”

Obviously, not the score that you wanted but the rhythm of your offense in this game was that what you wanted to see:
“Well, look, it became that type of game. It became a possession game where both teams were having success. If you look at the numbers, statistically third down look at the numbers in a lot of areas, the turnovers still ended up becoming something that was very important. We were trying to take advantage of as many opportunities as you have when you get into those scoring positions. We ended up coming up short. It was tough.”

Re: Sean Payton, players discuss Sunday's loss to Atlanta Falcons

Curtis Lofton summed it up well:

Overall, we had a bad day. We won't make excuses. They came out and made plays. One of the things that stood out, they stayed on the field on third down. We didn't get off the field on third down. We didn't tackle well and didn't play great red zone defense. So, when you have a combination of all three of those, then that is what the outcome is going to be.”
And so did Keenan Lewis:

On if the loss was discouraging:
“We'll get it together, I promise you that. Definitely. Only one team went 16-0. We'll be ready.”

On mixing up the back end with the receivers:
“They have good players too. Julio (Jones) is a great player...Roddy White. They brought in Devin Hester. He made some plays, but, we will see them again.”

Typical Saints/Falcons game.
We were on the losing end of this one on a last minute turnover, otherwise we would have taken it.

Oh he's pissed. The level of effort on defense will be turned up. If it isn't starters will be benched. It would not be the first time.
