New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton
Post-Practice Media Availability
Wednesday, November 05, 2014

Opening Statement: “We signed tackle Nick Becton, number 67 from the Giants practice squad to our active roster and placed fullback Austin Johnson on Injured Reserve and we added two practice squad players, running back Tauren Poole, number 30 and fullback Michael Zordich, number 34. (It) puts us at 53 (active) and 10 (practice squad).”

Playing as well as this team has the last two games, do you look at the time off as an advantage with rest or something that could stop the momentum?

“There’s plusses and minuses with playing a Thursday game. The challenge overall is the quick turnaround. The benefit is receiving a little bit of additional time to get people rested up. There were a number of things that we pointed out when they came back in that we have to work on. I think it was an important win for us on Thursday, yet there are a ton of things we have to clean up. That’s our job right now, to make sure we’re working on improving in those area. The schedule is what it is and there’s really no choice in the matter. I thought how we handled the turnaround was positive. There’s a lot of things when you put the tape on that stand out that you have to improve on.”

Is there a such thing as having too much time to prepare?

“I don’t think so. It’s probably easier on a bye, but I think it’s not as much you really thing. At this point in the season you have a ton of tape on your opponent. Here we are today practicing base. I don’t think that’s too much.”

Can you talk about the year Perrish Cox is having?

“He’s a part of six turnovers. He has four interceptions, two fumbles recovered. He’s active. He’s an experienced player. It’s a real good secondary. Every year they do a great job of eliminating big plays. They tackle well and they have really good ball skills. It’s shown up. You see his numbers specifically are real high.”

Is he someone you are mindful of individually?

“Each week we’ll go into plans and we’ll look there at the personnel and we’ll understand formationally what they play coveragewise and I think the first thing that we are always keen on is ball skills, the level of ball skills players have and Drew (Brees) will always know going into the game (about) corners that are physical, have technique and ball skills, you have to be precise with your location.”
