QB Drew Brees

ON THE SEASON: “We’re on our way. I think had you told us or anybody that after 0-4 we would be looking at 5-5 at some point, winning five of six with that schedule that we had in front of us, a lot of people might have looked at that and said that’s pretty unrealistic. But here we are. We stayed the course; we didn’t overreact. I think a lot of what was happening outside the building was the talk about just kind of waiting for the crisis. But the fact is we’ve got good players, good people, great character, great leadership, and we just knew that things were going to turn for us. If we just continued to do things the right way, good things were going to happen. And we did that, that’s exactly what we did. And we’ve had some great team wins here during this run, five of six. Both sides of the ball really stepping up and making plays when called upon.”

ON THE GAME: “Again today, great all around team victory; very balanced on offense, defensively coming up with a big turnover resulting in points, another one that took points away from them. Just playing good football; special teams coming up with the big return to start the second half. So as I look at our team and just the way that we’re building and the way that we’re winning, we’re doing it the right way.”

ON EFFICIENCY: “I’m all about efficiency; the yards don’t matter, the number of completions doesn’t matter. I want to be efficient. I want to be a good decision-maker. I want to just make the plays when I’m called upon to do that and take care of the football, just do all of those little things.”

ON OFFENSE: “I think early on, that first drive, just tempo, getting in and out of the huddle, getting plays dialed up, whether it was the run game or the pass game; I think the balance of being able to run it effectively and throw it effectively and convert some third downs. We were 55% on third down, that’s definitely winning football. Got the benefit of a big return there to start the third quarter and some turnovers. It felt like first half, we only had four possessions, like we were backed up quite a bit and still came away with 14 points offensively and our defense got one, but just kept plugging away with our plan and stuck with it.”

S Roman Harper

On defensive performance: “I feel better than where we were and we’re making plays now. We’re making turnovers and big plays, and not allowing big plays. I hate that we gave up that last touchdown on the two minute drive. But overall, I liked our effort today. We got to eliminate these long drives that we have been giving up, and we are playing faster. We got to tackle better than what we did overall, we allowed some leaky yardage, but overall, I really liked our effort today.”

On the season: “It’s been a long grind, especially starting 0-4, but we never pointed fingers. We stuck together as a locker room and as a team, and we knew that we could achieve great things if we just stuck together, continue this grind and long season together. We are right back where we need to be, at .500, and we got to continue to grind and we will be in the playoff race.”
