A lot of what we were hearing in the locker room post-Carolina was about how no matter how it looked it was still a win. They’ll take 16-14 any day over losing like they did a week ago.
Here’s a few quotables from behind the scenes:
“Although it wasn’t always perfect it was a good win.”
— Sean Payton, opening statement —
“I thought it helped us as it pertained to our third-down conversions. There were few third-and-longs, but there weren’t many.”
— Payton, on whether he had planned on using the running game heavily.
“I look at today and today should have been a 30-point day. We scored 16 points. We had a chance to score a touchdown at the end; that’s four more points. We had a fumble at the 1-yard line; that’s seven points. We had a fumble going into the end zone; that’s a minimum of another three points.”
— Drew Brees, on whether the offense still has a killer instinct.
