Vaccaro, Secondary Respond To Shakeup

Kenny Vaccaro, New Orleans Saints secondary respond to shakeup - ESPN

Vaccaro was admittedly making too many assignment errors in his first season as a true strong safety -- including two very costly ones in last week's 41-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. He said he was reacting before thinking and needs to learn patience.

Payton ultimately decided Vaccaro was hurting the team too much in that role. But he still believed Vaccaro could be an asset if he played him to his strengths.

"His preparation was outstanding," Payton said. "He played about three different spots tonight (temporarily going back to his old spot when replacement Jamarca Sanford was injured). He was outstanding."

Vaccaro wasn't the only one who bounced back in impressive fashion as the Saints shuffled up their embattled secondary. Sanford and cornerback Terrence Frederick made their starting debuts, while cornerback Patrick Robinson moved to dime packages and Corey White was inactive.

The Saints' top cornerback Keenan Lewis was stingy as usual, coming up with some big-time pass break-ups against dangerous receiver Alshon Jeffery.

And the Saints picked off a season-high three passes against an extremely off-target Bears quarterback Jay Cutler -- one by Robinson on a tipped ball during the opening series and two by rookie safety Pierre Warren.

Warren, an undrafted rookie who re-signed with the Saints last month off the Minnesota Vikings practice squad, practically feels like a veteran already after filling the free safety spot that was vacated by season-ending injuries to Jairus Byrd and Rafael Bush.

"It feels good because they brought me in to make turnovers, so doing that, doing my job, I just gotta keep going," said Warren, who explained that his first pick came in prevent mode in the final seconds of the first half and his second came from a tip by Lewis.

"No. 28, 'Westbank,'" Warren said, using Lewis' nickname, "he had helped me out on that one. He had figured something out, so he told me to get over the top of him, and I was in the right place."

Re: Vaccaro, Secondary Respond To Shakeup

If we can win the division, I don't think Arizona is as good as people think, we could get get a wild card win if we play with as much passion as we did last night.

They have a decent defense, but they are down to their 3rd QB, both their leading rushers are on IR and Larry Fitzgerald has been injured on and off all season.

Re: Vaccaro, Secondary Respond To Shakeup

So we start 3 players that we grabbed off the street alongside Lewis and it looked like our secondary's best game of the season?

Wow.

I saw Frederick pop Forte on a wide run. The kid played with attitude last night. It was refreshing to see this.

Re: Vaccaro, Secondary Respond To Shakeup

Frederick looked really good. Much better then Briam Dixon and Corey White. Patrick Robinson shows flashes of greatness when he's not asked to be the man. Pierre Warren.....boy do I have high hopes for him. And Sanford looked good as well. He looks a lot better then Marcus Ball has.

And who know Hawthorne could rush the passer up the middle like that? We should do it more often.
