New Orleans Saints Center Max Unger
Conference Call with Local Media
Monday, October 26, 2015

When the offense and the special teams do what the Saints did yesterday, with the fake field goal, the long pass to (Brandin) Cooks and the first down completion to (Marques) Colston to kind of end the game, what does that say about the mindset and the mentality of the offense?

We tried to seal it, obviously, a little bit earlier, but we wanted to end the game with the ball in our hands. We were able to do that. It took most of the fourth quarter (to seal it) and you dont want it to be that way. You want to end it and have good clock-churning drives. We figured it out in the end and I thought it was a step in the right direction.

Was that the kind of aggression that you were expecting when you joined this team? I guess you came from a team that would run it and punish you down the stretch. This was more of a daring way to do it, so to speak.

I think the calls were the best opportunity that we had to go win the game. I think were going to call plays that put us in the best position that we can be in when the game is on the line. I thought we dialed it up and two guys made a heck of a play to seal the game right there.

On the fake field goal, you also were downfield on that. Were you the secondary receiver on that?

Oh yeah, I was wide open. I should have got that ball (laughing). Really, I dont know why I was out. I guess it was to kind of put one of the guys in a harder position, (thinking if he) should go cover Ben (Watson) in the flat or cover me down the hash. Ben made a great play. It was interesting being downfield legally. That was kind of cool.

When you guys ran that in practice, was the ball ever thrown to you?

It was not. We only (practiced) that a couple of times but coach was pretty serious about getting it called in the game. It was on the right hash and it was just the right time in the game to execute it. It was pretty cool.

So was I ! the last thing I wanted to see was the game in the hands of the defense.

There will be a game or two this year that the defense will come up with a win.

This defense is finally coming into its own and will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come!

Byrd in the lineup is huge. He helps the CB's and Vaccaro.
