New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees
Post-Practice Media Availability
Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Are you happy to play at home for the next three games?

“It is nice to get in front of the home crowd. I feel like we have some momentum going with these last two victories, one home and one on the road. No more important game than the next one and especially just the way our season has been going, we want to take advantage of this opportunity and this momentum that we have and continue to focus on getting better. Listen, the schedule doesn’t get any easier. It only gets tougher. San Francisco is a very good football team. They have won more games over the last three years than anybody in the NFC. They have been to the NFC Championship game or better three years in a row. We’ve played these guys the last three years in a row and it has always been a tough game and a physical game. We know what to expect. We know they are going to be ready so we have to make sure we are ready as well.”

Do you look more to your personal experience with them than how the 49ers have played recently?

“As we know things can change quickly. You can’t take anything for granted. In many cases it is not who you play, it is when you play them. They probably feel this week like we did a couple of weeks ago where you are in desperate need of a win. Because of that we know the type of team that is going to come in here. They are going to be ready. They are going to be prepared and they are going to give it their best. We have to make sure, listen, execution is at a premium. We come in, we execute our game plan, we play the type of game we know we can play, that gives us the best chance to win.”

Is it a bad time to play the 49ers?

“I don’t think there is any good time to play them. Listen, they are a good football team. The fact that they’ve lost the last two games, we know that feeling around here because it happened to us just a little bit earlier in the season. You know the type of sense of urgency there is in their locker room. I would say our sense of urgency nears that as well. It is going to be a great football game.”

Do you think Sean Payton is good at capitalizing on the Dome-advantage?

“Hopefully we keep that streak going for a while. It is what it is. There is a reason that home field advantage is an advantage. Look around the league and percentages of teams that have that type of winning atmosphere and winning record at home. I think it is for obvious reasons. At the end of the day just because we are playing at home does not entitle us to anything. We still have to go out and execute and play well.”

What are some of the challenges of having a stretch at home?

“You can ask me this in three weeks when we’ve played three consecutive home games but for now it is just, man, this is the next game. It doesn’t matter where we are playing them whether it is in the Dome or there or at Tad Gormley. You are just focusing on the football game and the details and the execution.”

What have you been most pleased with this team the last two games?

“I think that we’ve really been able to narrow the focus and block out a lot of what could be potential distractions and just stuff that maybe we don’t have any control over. We’ve really done a good job of focusing on the here and now and the opportunity we have each day to get better to get our work done on the practice field that carries over to positive results on the field. With that emphasis comes success on the field.”

How salty do you think they are considering the way last year went?

“I don’t know. Ask them about it. From our perspective that was a game that went back and forth. I think there were maybe breaks on both sides throughout the game. Bottom line is we were down six points in the fourth quarter and we found a way on two consecutive possessions to go down and get points and win the game. A lot of things can happen in the course of the game. You just want to have a chance to win at the end and the team came together. We really fought hard to get that win and that’s all I can say about last year. We are really focused on this year and what type of team we have this year, the team they have this year and how we can put together a great game plan and go out and execute that on Sunday.”
