Opening Statement:

“We did not do well. Number one, third down numbers were not good again. They were not last year when we lost to them in Tampa. Obviously, the two turnovers we had, and zero takeaways on the other side (were a major factor). That’s not the type of game that suits us and that’s the type of game we’ve played in years past as a .500 team. We have a lot of work to do and a lot of things to correct. We had way too many mistakes, and we struggled with explosives (plays on offense) that they had and we have to get cleaned up. Obviously, it starts with me and our staff and we didn’t do a good job. We will look at the tape tomorrow and start again next week.”

On defensively what didn’t work:
“Take your pick. We did not hurry the passer. Guys were open. Third downs were awful. They had over 500 yards. We didn’t disrupt the timing to any element of the passing game and too many penalties. I can’t think of any positives.”

On the Michael Thomas play where it appeared that he might be untouched:
“That’s not the frustration right now. It’s not going to be a perfect game.”

Defenses have not only been bad, but historically off the charts bad. The culture must change on defense in New Orleans.

Culture is linked to the head coach, only one way that changes.

Payton hasn't got the stones to build a D that's consistent, all he does is consistently trade up for project players.

Culture won't change, one of two things would have to happen - Payton fire his BFF (not gonna happen) or Payton gets fired (Also unlikely)

I still miss Greg Williams... we were the most consistent under his watch.

I agree. We would've been better off just weathering the bountygate storm with him. Hindsight being 20/20...

Re: Quotes from Sean Payton's postgame press conference

Let's re cap :

Demario was the 8th ranked MLB last season, now he's awful.
While our WILL is playing MIKE.
Our SAM is a backup MIKE.
PRob was one of the best slot CB's in the league. Now he appears lost & confused after game 1?
Lattimore was the DROY for 2017, now he's lazy, not in football shape and crying post game?
Craig Robertson - all he does is makes plays with the 1's, 2's, 3's and 4 but doesn't play/limited action against a divisional foe?

Me thinks it's not all on the players.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle

That’s not entirely accurate, feel free to look up the stats yourself.
