SaintsTonight – 2017 Week 12


♪♪>>>GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US HERE FOR “SAINTS TONIGHT!”. WELCOME. ALONGSIDE SCOTT SHANLEY, I AM VICTOR HOWELL. UNFORTUNATELY FOR THE SAINTS, THE WIN STREAK CAME TO AN END. IT WOULD BE FUN TO PLAY OUT. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE HIGHER SCORING, BUT THESE ARE TWO TEAMS THAT HAVE BEEN PLAY-OFF CONTENDERS. FOR THOSE DOUBTING THE RAMS, THEY GUARANTEE THEIR FIRST NONLOSING SEASON IN ABOUT A DECADE. IF THEY WIN ONE MORE GAME, THEIR FIRST WINNING SEASON SINCE 2003.>>THIS WON’T MAKE SAINTS FANS FEEL BETTER, BUT IT WAS MORE ABOUT THE L.A. RAMS. I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THEIR DEFENSE. WADE PHILLIPS, WE SPOTLIGHTED A LOT OF THESE GREAT PLAYERS. THEIR LINEBACKERS ARE GOOD PLAYERS AND WERE PLAYING TIGHT MAN-TO-MAN COVERAGE AND DID A GOOD JOB DEFENSIVELY. IT’S TOUGH TO GO ON THE ROAD AND GET WINS AGAINST A GOOD TEAM LIKE THE RAMS AT HOME. YOU HAVE TO DUST YOURSELF OFF AND NO THERE IS A LOT OF FOOTBALL TO BE PLAYED.>>FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO HEAR SOME OF THE GLASS HALF-FULL ANGLE, IF YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE, IT’S BETTER TO LOSE THIS ONE THEN SAY, WEEK FROM TODAY YOU PLAY THE CAROLINA PANTHERS. >>WHEN YOU START LOOKING AT IT AND TALK ABOUT THE STRETCH, THE RAMS, THE PANTHERS AND THE FALCONS ON A SHORT WEEK. IF YOU GET TWO WINS, THAT IS HUGE. CAROLINA AT HOME AND ATLANTA ON THE ROAD ARE HUGE WINS. CAROLINA KEEPS HANGING AROUND. THEY JUST FIND A WAY TO WIN AND KEEP WINNING GAMES. BIG GAME AT HOME THIS WEEK. YOU HAVE TO GET AFTER THESE GUYS AND GET A WIN. >>WE WILL GET YOUR REACTION FROM L.A. FIRST, WE WILL SHOW YOU THE HIGHLIGHTS OF HOW THIS PLAYED OUT THIS AFTERNOON. NATIONAL GAME FOR THE CBS ROD TEST. EARLY ON, THE RAMS STARTING THINGS OFF. JARED GOLF SHOWING OFF HOW GOOD HE IS. HE HAD A VERY GOOD GAME. THIRD AND 5 FROM THE 30. TODD GURLEY FOR 11 YARDS AT FIRST AND GOAL NOW FROM THE FIVE. WATKINS AGAIN ON THE QUICK INSIDE MOVE. SEVEN PLAYS, 59 YARDS. THE RAMS WITH A 7-0 LEAD. SECOND AND 4 FROM THE RAMS’ 45. WE TALK ABOUT THAT RAMS DEFENSE. GETTING INTO THE BACKFIELD FOR A LOSS OF SIX YARDS ON THE PLAY. THIRD AND 10 FROM THE SAINTS’ 49. ROBERT QUINN, LOSS OF SEVEN YARDS. LOOSE BALL. THE SAINTS WOULD BE FORCED TO PUNT. THE RAMS FALL BACK. FIRST AND 10 NOW. GOFF. CAM JORDAN MAKING THE HIGHLIGHT. HE GETS PAST, AND GOFF CAN’T SPIN AWAY. A LOSS OF TEN. THE RAMS HAVE A 4 AND 1. GOFF UP TOP TO JOSH REYNOLDS. YOU SEE THE YELLOW SLATE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. HOLDING ON MY CAR OH. LET’S LOOK AND SEE WHERE IT COMES. IT’S QUICK, BUT THEY KEEP THE DRIVE ALIVE. THE RAMS, FOURTH AND 13. THEY KICK THE 50-YARD FIELD GOAL. THE RAMS, 11-PLAYED DRIVE THAT TOOK 5:30. THE SAINTS RESPONDED QUICKLY. THE LONGEST PLAY WAS 54 YARDS BY MARK INGRAM. THE SAINTS HAD 100 YARDS. 74 ON THAT TOUCHDOWN RUN RIGHT THERE. THE RAMS HAD THE BALL FOR MORE THAN 11 MINUTES. THAT MAKES IT A THREE-POINT GAME HEADING TO THE SECOND. WE PICK IT UP WITH THE RAMS HAVING THE BALL. SECOND AND 11 FROM THEIR OWN 40. GOFF, ANOTHER PLAYER WE TALKED ABOUT. WHAT HAPPENED HERE.>>THAT IS THE BIGGER ISSUE. HE GOT LOST AND DIDN’T SEE IT. YOU HAVE TO HUSTLE AND MAKE THE TACKLE.>>LOST THE BALL IN THE AIR. GOFF TO JOSH REYNOLDS. THE TOUCHDOW. THIRD AND TWO FROM THEIR OWN 32. QUICKLY TO MICHAEL THOMAS. FIRST DOWN. NOW TO THEIR OWN 46. HE GETS IT TO HIM, AND HE DOES THE REST. HE BREAKS A TACKLE AND ANOTHER. 21 YARDS. GREAT RUN BY CAMERO. EVENTUALLY THE DRIVE STALLS AND LEADS TO A FOURTH AND 8 FROM THE 31. HERE COMES WILL LET’S. RIGHT DOWN THE PIPE WITH ROOM TO SPARE. EIGHT PLAYS, 44 YARDS. THAT MAKES IT 17-10, RAMS. YOU CAN SEE THE RED LINE WHERE THEY ARE TRYING TO GET THE FIELD GOAL, AND THEY ARE CLOSE. THEY ARE ALMOST RIGHT ON IT, BUT CAM JORDAN WITH HIS SECOND SACK. KNOCKING THE RAMS OUT OF IT. THEY MAKE ANOTHER PLAY AND SETTLE FOR A FOURTH AND 10 FROM THE 45. 63 THE RAMS HAVE THE BALL FOR 18:35 AND RAN 39 PLACE TO THE SAINTS’ 21. NEW ORLEANS WAS ONLY DOWN SEVEN ON THE ROAD AT THE BREAK. THE THIRD QUARTER, YOU THOUGHT 21 PLAYS IN THE HALF. THE SAINTS BARELY HAD THE BALL. THE RAMS FROM THEIR OWN 25. SAMMY WATKINS DEEP AND INCOMPLETE. TOP OF THE SCREEN, HERE COMES THE FLAG. PASS INTERFERENCE ON T.J. WILLIAMS. >>ACTUALLY, THE BALL WASN’T A GREAT THROWN BALL. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU GO UP, THERE ARE BODIES THAT CONTACT AND WRAP AROUND THE NECK. JUST GO UP AND TRY TO HIGH POINT THE BALL. >>HE COULD HAVE BEEN IN A POSITION TO INTERCEPT IT. KEEP THE DRIVE GOING. 0 LINE BACK ON THE FIELD. 20-10, RAMS. GOFF TO SAMMY WATKINS. 22 YARDS ON THAT GAME. NOW FIRST AND 10 FROM THEIR 32. GOFF TO TYLER HIGBEE.>>BLOWN COVERAGE. YOU HAVE TO MATCHUP. HE RAN UP THE SIDELINE AND HAD TO MAKE THE TACKLE TO SAVE ALL THE YARDS HE COULD. >>THE 20 YARD LINE AND WOULD LEAD TO THE BEGINNING OF THE FOURTH QUARTER. IN THE THIRD QUARTER, THE SAINTS HAD 13 PLAYS FOR 23 YARDS. THE RAMS HAVE A TEN-POINT LEAD AS WE GO TO THE FOURTH. THAT DRIVE WOULD LEAD TO A FIELD GOAL. IT’S NOW 23-10, RAMS. NOW THE CLOCK IS WORKING AGAINST YOU. FIRST AND 10 FROM THE 40. OVER ANOTHER TACKLE AND 17 TACKLES. SAINTS GET IT TO FOURTH AND 5 FROM THE RAMS’ 38. RAYS WAITING AND FINDS KAMARA IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. HE THOUGHT HE WOULD BREAK AWAY. THE FLAG IS ON THE RAMS. THE SAINTS GET THE BALL FIRST AND GOAL. SECOND AND GOAL FROM THE 3. RAYS TO MARK INGRAM. TOUCHDOWN. THIS MIGHT BE THE CRUCIAL PLAY OF THE GAME. PASS INTERFERENCE. >>EVERYBODY RUNS. YOU DON’T NEED TO DO THAT. JUST GET A PIECE OF THAT GUY WILL BE OUT OF POSITION. >>THAT TAKE THE TOUCHDOWN OFF THE BOARD. WILL LET’S COMES ON WITH 21 YARDS TO GO. THEY SETTLE FOR THREE. 23-13. GOFF. THIS PLAY BY P.J. WILLIAMS LOOKS LIKE IT WILL FALL INCOMPLETE. THAT GRABS THE INTERCEPTION. >>YOU ARE THINKING, ALL RIGHT, THIS IS THE CRAZY PLAY THAT WILL GET THEM BACK IN THE GAME.>>THE SAINTS GO THREE AND OUT. THE RAMS GO ON A LONG DRIVE AND KICK THE FIELD GOAL. NOW YOU KNOW YOU NEED TWO TOUCHDOWNS. 2:27 TO GO. WILL THIS BE LIKE WASHINGTON AGAIN? 15 YARDS. RAYS, 11 YARDS. THIS ONE GOES FOR 25 YARDS. NOW THE SAINTS ARE STRIKING. FIRST AND 10 FROM THE 15. HOW ABOUT WE GO BACK TO KAMARA. KAMARA, FLAG ON THE RAMS. SIX PLAYS, 75 YARDS IN 42 SECONDS THE SAINTS HAVE MADE IT 26-20. ONSIDE KICK. THE RAMS CALL TIME OUT. HERE IS THE SECOND OPPORTUNITY. THE RAMS GET THE CATCH. WATKINS. WHAT A DAY HE HAD. THAT WOULD DO IT OR THE FIRST WIN FOR THE RAMS WHEN LOSING THE TURNOVER BATTLE, SOMETHING WE TALKED ABOUT THIS MORNING THE RAMS HAD THE BALL FOR OVER 35 MINUTES AND RAN 19 MORE PLAYS THAN THE SAINTS. THE RAMS NOW HAVE THE FIRST NONLOSING SEASON SINCE 2006 THE NEXT WIN WILL GIVE THEM THE FIRST WINNING SEASONS SINCE 2003. AS FOR THE BLACK AND GOLD, THEY HAVE TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING THEY HAVEN’T HAD TO DO SINCE WEEK TWO OF THE SEASON, AND THAT IS COME HOME WITH A LOSS.>>OBVIOUSLY, IT’S A DISAPPOINTING LOSS. CREDIT THE RAMS. CLEARLY, THEY WERE BETTER IN EVERY AREA TODAY. JUST THOUGHT YOU COULD POINT TO A NUMBER OF THINGS. WE LOOK IN SO MANY AREAS. THE THIRD DOWNS AND OFFENSE STUNK. WE HURT OURSELVES AT 117 YARDS IN PENALTIES, AND YOU KNOW, THAT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH. >>HOW HARD WAS GURLEY TO BRING DOWN?>>HE RAN HARD. THEY RAN FOR HIM. THE OFFENSE RAN THROUGH HIM. WE JUST GOT TO PLAY BETTER. >>YOU GUYS HAVE WON EIGHT STRAIGHT. SO MUCH TO PLAY FOR YOU TALK ABOUT HOW CRUCIAL THIS RUN IS. >>WE ARE JUST GOING TO THE NEXT GAME. WE ARE JUST TRYING TO GET TO THE NEXT GAME AND CONTROL OUR OWN DESTINY. >>THE SAINTS DO CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE. THE SAINTS HAD SOME REALLY LONG RUN. THE SAINTS’ BANDWAGON HAS IN FULL. THIS GAME WAS FLEXED BECAUSE OF THE INTENTION. NEXT WEEK BECAUSE OF THE WIN STREAK. LET’S SEE HOW THE SAINTS REBOUND FROM SOMETHING THEY HAVEN’T DONE SINCE THE SECOND WEEK OF SEPTEMBER AT HOME AGAINST CAROLINA. >>YOU PUT YOURSELF IN POSITION TO PLAY IN EVEN BIGGER GAMES. YOU HAD SUCH GREAT SUCCESS. NOW YOU ARE A NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT TEAM FOR THE RAMS, CAROLINA, ATLANTA. IT’S ABOUT HOW YOU RESPOND. NOBODY ON THAT TEAM EXPECTS TO GO OUT THERE AND COME BACK WITH AN “L”. NOW IT’S ABOUT REGROUPING AND GETTING OVER THIS GAME AS FAST AS YOU CAN KNOWING THAT YOU COULD FACE THAT TEAM DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN. >>I AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAID. WE TALKED ABOUT IT THIS MORNING. SEAN PAYTON, THIS IS A GOOD TEAM THAT WAS 4-12 A YEAR AGO AND ARE ON THE DOORSTEP THEY’VE SOMETHING YOU HAVEN’T DONE SINCE 2003. YOUNG PLAYERS WITH OVER 400 YARDS OF OFFENSE. THIS IS MORE ABOUT WHAT THE RAMS ARE DOING NOT THAT THE SAINTS ARE PLAYING BAD THE RAMS ARE A MUCH MORE IMPROVED FOR ALL TEAM.>>YOU HAVE TO GIVE THIS TEAM CREDIT. THEY WENT TO MINNESOTA AND PLAYED A GOOD TEAM LAST WEEK AND GOT HANDLED UP IN MINNESOTA. TO SEE THEM TODAY FOR A FULL GAME, THE DEFENSE WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE. PHYSICALITY, SCHEME-WISE. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS QUARTERBACK, HE IS PLAYING GREAT AND THEY ARE CALLING GOOD PLAYS FOR HIM AND PUTTING HIM IN A POSITION TO SUCCEED. >>WE FOCUSED ON DONALD THIS MORNING. HE GRADED HIGHER THAN ANY PLAYER AT ANY POSITION IN THE NFL. THIS JUST SHOWS YOU HOW THEY FRUSTRATED TREES EARLY. HE WAS SACKED THREE TIMES, BUT THE DEFENSE PUT THEMSELVES IN A POSITION TO FORCE THE SAINTS TO MAKE PLAYS EVEN ON A TOUGH COMPLETION LIKE THIS.>>SWARMING THE BALL. GOOD THINGS HAPPEN WHETHER YOU FUMBLE, INTERCEPT, GETTING HITS ON THE BALL CARRIER. HE IS ONE OF THE BEST MIDDLE LINEBACKERS. ALL THE DIFFERENT PEOPLE THEY HAVE, THEY HAVE GOOD PLAYERS.>>THEY MADE SOME BIG PLAYS TODAY AGAINST THAT SAINTS’ OFFENSE. IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO GET THE WIN ON THE ROAD. WE TALKED ABOUT THE RAMS’ OFFENSE AND HOW GOOD THEY LOOKED. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT, THERE WERE PLAYS THAT THE SAINTS DEFENSE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE EVEN THOUGH THE OFFENSE WAS PLAYING VERY WELL. YOU DON’T HAVE TO HELP THEM, AND WE DID SEE THAT THIS AFTERNOON. >>JUST TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THOSE PLAYS. THEY WERE MAKING THE PLAYS WHEN THEY MATTERED MOST. FOUR, FIVE, SIX PLAYS CONTROL THE OUTCOME OF THAT GAME. THE ONE THING THAT I NOTICED, TALKING ABOUT DEFENSIVELY, CAM JORDAN, I DON’T KNOW HOW THAT HAPPENED.>>ONE OF THE PLAYERS THAT HAD A TOUGH AFTERNOON, FIRST GAME BACK IN THREE GAMES. WE SAW WHERE HE LOST THE BALL. THERE WERE PLAYS WHERE I WILL SAY THEY TRY TO PICK ON HIM, BUT HE LOOKED LIKE A GUY WHO HAS NOT BEEN FRESH. HE HAS BEEN OUT FOR THE BETTER PART OF THE LAST THREE GAMES. >>HE DOES A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS, BUT THERE IS NO DOUBT HE IS AND UP AND HAS MISSED SOME GAMES. WHEN YOU MISS WEEKS OF PLAYING, IT’S TOUGH. A LOT OF IT COMES DOWN TO GAME SPEED, GAME TIMING, GETTING USED TO THAT ENVIRONMENT. WHEN YOU GO INTO THE GAME, IT’S A DIFFERENT SPEED AND ATMOSPHERE. >>YOU SAW THAT HOLDING CALL, AND THAT OTHER ONE. MISSED OPPORTUNITIES FOR A TACKLE. YOU MISSED THE TACKLE, THEY GET FIVE OR SIX EXTRA YARDS. GOFF IS FIVE, SIX YARDS BACK. THIS IS ONE WE JUST SLIDE RIGHT ON I. COMING FROM THEIR OWN END ZONE. >>ANYTIME YOU HAVE SOMEBODY BACKED UP, YOU DON’T IT ON THE FIELD BECAUSE OF THE MISSED TACKLE. IT’S ABOUT POPULATION AND GETTING TO THE BALL. GURLEY IS A HECK OF A PLAYER, BUT YOU NEED EVERYBODY HUSTLING.>>YOU HEARD SEAN PAYTON SAY IN HIS COMMENTS THAT YOU CAN OVERCOME THOSE PENALTY. WE ALSO CALLED THERE PLAY SLOPPY. WHAT DID DEUCE McALLISTER THINK? HE WAS ON THE CALL ON THE RADIO NETWORK AND SPOKE TO MIKE NEIGHBORS AFTERWARD. >>EIGHT-GAME WINNING STREAK IN THE BOOKS, BUT WE APPRECIATE DEUCE McALLISTER JOINING US. SLOPPY WE CAN PRACTICE SEEMED TO CARRYOVER. >>CAN’T COMMENT ON PRACTICE, BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY SLOPPY GAME-WISE. THEY HAD OVER 100 YARDS. I UNDERSTAND YOU HAD A COUPLE OF PASSER INTERFERENCE PENALTIES, BUT THIS WAS THE ONE THING WHEN YOU ARE WINNING GAMES THAT YOU DON’T TAKE CARE OF THE LITTLE THINGS, THEY COME BACK TO BITE YOU. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED TODAY. I HAVE BEEN CONCERNED. 3 FOR 13. IF IT’S THE PLAY CALLING, PERSONNEL, IT HAS TO CHANGE. THEY CAN’T CONTINUE TO DO WHAT THEY ARE DOING FROM AN OFFENSIVE OR DEFENSIVE STANDPOINT. >>WHAT DID YOU THINK WITH TEN MINUTES LEFT WHEN THEY KICKED THE FIELD GOAL?>>I KNEW THAT SEAN WANTED TO GET SOME POINTS. THEY WERE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE A DEFENSIVE TURNOVER, WHAT YOU GOT, BUT IT WAS LIKE A HUNT. SO FAR BACK WHEN YOU GOT IT. I THOUGHT THEY HAD TO GO FOR IT JUST TO TRY TO GET IT CLOSER AT THAT POINT TO TRY TO GET A TOUCHDOWN. THE RAMS DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB WITH THE OPEN FIELD TACKLE ON EVERYONE EXCEPT ALVIN KAMARA. NOBODY OUTSIDE OF HIM WAS ABLE TO GET EXTRA YARDAGE. THAT IS WHERE YOUR TIP YOUR HAT.>>74-YARD RUN THAT WAS THE LONGEST OF THE YEAR STILL SHOWS THE FIRST AND HAS THE ABILITY TO MAKE PEOPLE MISS.>>HE HAS DONE REALLY WELL. THAT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT CONVERTING ON THIRD DOWN. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A LOT MORE INVOLVED, BUT THE OPPORTUNITIES, HE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF. IN THE PASSING GAME, HE HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING. HE JUST HAS TO CONTINUE TO GET BETTER AND BETTER EACH WEEK. YOU FEEL BAD BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO CONTROL THE GAME BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO GET ENOUGH PLAYS. >>THE MAJORITY OF THE GAME, THIS TEAM DIDN’T LAY WELL. TALK ABOUT YOUR CONCERN MOVING FORWARD AFTER BACK-TO-BACK, LACKLUSTER WE. >>YOU HAVE A YOUNG TEAM. YOU ARE WINNING, BUT HOW ARE YOU WINNING? NOW WITH THIS LOSS, MAYBE THEY SHARPEN IT MORE AND FOCUS ON THE LITTLE THINGS. THEY WERE ABLE TO OVERCOME THOSE LITTLE THINGS AND WIN. THIS TIME THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO DO IT. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET WITH A YOUNG TEAM. YES, THEY CAN BE CONSISTENT, BUT THEY CAN GO A DIFFERENT DIRECTION JUST LIKE THAT. THE BEST THING ABOUT IT, YOU ARE AT HOME AND HOST CAROLINA. CAM NEWTON IS HEALTHY. IT WILL BE A HECK OF A MATCHUP. YOU STILL CONTROL A LOT OF WHAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH. YOU JUST DON’T HAVE AS MUCH CUSHION. >>IT SHOWS HOW HARD THIS DIVISION IS. YOU WIN EIGHT STRAIGHT FOOTBALL GAMES, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO WIN. >>DOESN’T MATTER AT ALL. YOU ARE TIED UP WITH CAROLINA. AT THIS POINT, YES, IT’S GREAT THAT YOU WON EIGHT. >>YOU PUT YOURSELF IN A POSITION TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT A FIGHT. >>YOU HAVE DONE A LOT OF TALKING. I WILL LET YOU REST YOUR VOICE. BACK TO YOU GUYS. >>THINK THE NFL SCHEDULE FOR THAT BECAUSE THEY BACKLOADED EVERYTHING IN THE NFC SOUTH. IT WILL BE INTERESTING. HERE IS A LOOK AT THE NUMBERS. YOU HEARD DEUCE TOUCH ON A HUNCH OF THEM. NEITHER TEAM WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL. THE PENALTIES, THAT IS A BIG ISSUE. SOMETHING INTERESTING, THE LACK OF YARDS AFTER CONTACT SEEMED LIKE THE RAMS WERE MUCH MORE PHYSICAL TODAY AND BROKE THROUGH. >>I THINK THE RAMS WERE EXCELLENT TACKLING. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS, THE RAMS WERE HORRIBLE ON THIRD DOWN. WHEN YOU HAVE 21 MORE TOTAL PLAYS, YOU HAVE A LOT MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO SCORE POINTS IN THE GAME. A LOT OF TIMES IT WAS BECAUSE OF PENALTIES. THE RAMS HAD A LOT OF PENALTIES. A LOT OF THE PENALTY YARDAGE CAME ON THAT PASSER INTERFERENCE PLAY, WHICH WAS HUGE BECAUSE IT RESULTED IN CHANGING THE GAME. >>IT INDICATES THE FACT THAT YOU WON THE BATTLE OF TURNOVER. THEY HAD THE BALL FOR 11 MORE MINUTES, ALREADY INTO A WIN. MORE REACTION WITH MIKE NEIGHBORS. HE CAUGHT UP WITH THEM. >>TALK ABOUT HOW TOUGH THIS GAME WAS FOR YOU GUYS. >>DEFINITELY A TOUGH GAME, ESPECIALLY NOT BEING ABLE TO CONVERT ON THIRD DOWN AND PLAY OUR GAME. THAT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO CLEAN UP. >>WITH THAT IMPACTING THINGS. >>I KICKED OUT TO THE LEFT TACKLE. CHARLES IS A DIFFERENCE MAKER. ANYTIME HE GOES DOWN, IT’S TOUGH, BUT GUYS STEP UP AND PLAY. >>YOU ARE USED TO BEING IN THAT POSITION. I GUESS THAT HELP HAVING DONE IT. >>YES, IT DEFINITELY DOES. LAST YEAR AGAINST THE RAMS, SAME THING HAPPENED. NOTHING I WASN’T PREPARED FOR. >>SEAN PAYTON TOLD US IT WAS A LACKLUSTER WEEK IN PRACTICE. HE WAS HOPING IT WOULDN’T CARRYOVER TO THE GAME. DID YOU NOTICE THE TEMPO THIS WEEK NOT BEING WHAT IT USUALLY IS?>>DEFINITELY. WE HAVE TO PICK THAT UP THIS NEXT WEEK AND LEARN FROM THAT AND MAKE SURE THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN AGAIN. >>HOW CAN THIS TEAM TURN THINGS AROUND? IT’S REALLY TWO WEEKS IN A ROW IN SO MANY CRUCIAL GAMES COMING UP.>>WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO WORK AND REALLY FOCUS ON HAVING GOOD WEEKS IN PRACTICE AND GET READY FOR THE NEXT OPPONENT. >>ALWAYS A VERSATILE GUY ON THE OFFENSIVE LINE HAVING TO REPLACE ARMSTEAD LATE IN THE GAME. >>MORE FROM HIM IN JUST A MOMENT. WE HAVE OUR THOUGHTS ON CAM JORDAN. WE WILL FOCUS ON BIG 94. IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO HELP THE STATE GET THE WIN. THE NEXT OPPONENT, CAROLINA. THEY WERE IN ACTION AGAINST THE JETS HE DON’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF PLAYER DESERVES IT. >>CAM HAS DONE THIS FOR THE BETTER PART OF HIS CAREER PER THE FACT THE SAINTS ARE WINNING IS WHAT HELP HIM TO GET THE RECOGNITION HE DESERVES. WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT CAM IS THAT HE RUSHES THE PASSER AND GETS HIS NUMBERS BUT PLAYS THE RUN AS WELL. I HAVE PLAYED GAMES WITH GUYS THAT DON’T WANT ANY PART OF STOPPING THE RUN. THAT IS HOW I GET A CONTRACT, BUT CAM JORDAN IS THE ULTIMATE PRO. HE PLAYS THE RUN, THE PAST. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIM GET WHAT HE DESERVES. >>TRYING TO GET BACK IN. UNFORTUNATELY, IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO HELP THE SAINTS GET THE WIN. AFTERWARD, ONCE AGAIN HE SPENT TIME TALKING TO MIKE NEIGHBORS. >>CAM JORDAN JOINS ME AFTER THE SAINTS’ LOSS. TO ME, YOU REALLY STEPPED UP WHEN YOU NEEDED TO TO HOLD THEM.>>AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT WASN’T ENOUGH. I HAVE TO STEP UP MY EFFORTS EVEN MORE. I KNEW I WOULD HAVE A MISS ON THE TACKLES. WE TRIED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT. I AM HIGHLY IRRITATED ABOUT THIS LOSS. WE CAME IN AND HAD SOME MISCOMMUNICATION ERRORS THAT WERE CLEARLY THE DIFFERENCE. >>TWO SEX. YOU HAVE ECLIPSED LAST YEAR’S TOTAL BY 2.5. HOW SATISFIED ARE YOU?>>THAT’S ALL GOOD AND DANDY. I WOULD RATHER LOOK AT THAT AFTER WE WIN A SUPER BOWL. AT THIS POINT, WE JUST TOOK A LOSS. I JUST WANT TO GET BACK TO GAME PLANNING. >>SEAN PAYTON TALKED ABOUT PRACTICE. THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS, EVEN THOUGH YOU GOT THE WIN AGAINST WASHINGTON, DO YOU FEEL LIKE THIS TEAM KNOWS IT NEEDS TO STEP UP ITS PLAY?>>YEAH. AGAIN, THIS IS A TEAM THAT WAS A 7-3 TEAM COMING TO US. THEY ARE A HIGH OCTANE OFFENSE. IN MY MIND, THE DEFENSE DIDN’T DO ENOUGH FOR US TO WIN. WE MADE A COUPLE PLAYS TO GET THE BALL. AGAIN GOT CLOSE. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF THINGS WE NEED TO CLEAR UP. >>YOU ARE A WEST COAST GUY. YOU GOT A CHANCE TO VISIT WITH A LOT OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS HERE. >>COMING FROM ARIZONA, MY DAD DEFINITELY DROVE OVER. YOU TALK ABOUT THAT, GOING TO CAL AND ALL OF THAT. THIS WAS A NICE TRIP, AND IT WASN’T SUCCESSFUL. >>APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. HE ALREADY HAS TEN SEX FAR IN 2017. ACT TO YOU GUYS IN THE STUDIO. >>WE WILL COME BACK TO YOU IN A MOMENT TO FOCUS ON THE PLAYER ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BALL. I’M NOT SURE HOW MANY PEOPLE KNEW OF ALVIN KAMARA. LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT WHAT KAMARA HAS ACHIEVED TO THIS POINT THE WHOLE ADRIAN PETERSON TRIAL AND WONDERING, WHY WOULD WE GET RID OF A FUTURE HALL OF FAMER? ALVIN KAMARA SURPASSED 1,000 TOTAL YARDS FROM SCRIMMAGE AND SCORED A TOUCHDOWN IN FIVE STRAIGHT GAMES TO TIE FOR THE LONGEST ACTIVE STREAK IN THE NFL AND IS THE FIRST ROOKIE WITH TOUCHDOWNS IN FIVE STRAIGHT GAMES. HE IS THE FIRST SINCE HERSCHEL WALKER WITH 500 RUSHING AND RECEIVING IN HIS FIRST 11 GAMES. HE IS THE FIRST TO DO IT SINCE JIMMY GRAHAM IN 2011 AND INCLUDED THE PLAY-OFFS. YOUR THOUGHTS, BECAUSE NUMBER 41 JUST CONTINUES TO IMPRESS. >>YOU SEE THIS KID THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, AND HE GETS BETTER EVERY WEEK. TO SEE HIM DO THIS AGAINST A REALLY GOOD DEFENSE, THERE ARE CERTAIN PLAYERS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE ON A DIFFERENT. THIS KID HAS ALL OF THAT. WHAT HE DOES, I DON’T THINK THERE IS A BETTER OFFENSE. WHAT HE DOES RUNNING THE BALL IS MORE THAN I THOUGHT HE COULD DO WITH HIS SIZE AND WHAT HE DID. WHAT HE DOES IN THE BACKFIELD, HE CAN RUN ALL THE ROUTES AND IS A SPECIAL PLAYER. >>THE PASSES, I’M GOING TO ASK YOU FROM THE FOOTBALL ANGLE IF THIS MAKES SENSE. WHEN HE GETS ON THE SCREEN PASSES, IT’S IN A DIFFERENT WAY FROM MARK INGRAM. LAST WEEK IN OVERTIME, A QUICK DUMP TO THE SIDE. HE GOES DOWN THE SIDELINE ON THOSE SCREEN PLAYS. WHEN KAMARA IS GETTING THOSE PLAYS, HE’S ON THE SIDE BUT STILL GOOD ENOUGH TO CREATE A LOT DIFFERENTLY. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?>>ATHLETICALLY HE IS VERY GIFTED. THERE IS NO DOUBT HE IS GIFTED NEED-WISE. THESE ARE WORLD-CLASS ATHLETES HE IS RUNNING AWAY FROM. NOT ALL RUNNING BACKS. THERE ARE FAST PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CAN’T DO WHAT HE CAN DO. HE HAS INSTINCTS AND HE FEELS DEFENDERS BEFORE THEY EVEN GET TO HIM. THE BEST WORD TO USE IS SLITHER. NO ONE CAN REALLY GET A GOOD HIT ON HIM. ALL THE RAMS PLAYERS WERE TRYING TO TACKLE HIM, BUT HE GOT FIVE, SIX, SEVEN MORE YARDS. >>THAT ONE HAND ON THE GROUND, KEEPING THE PLAY ALIVE. OUTSTANDING DAY AGAIN TODAY FROM ALVIN KAMARA. HE SPENT TIME TALKING TO MIKE AFTERWARD. >>TALK ABOUT THE TEMPO. DURING THIS WINNING STREAK, THIS ONE WAS DIFFERENT. >>IT WAS DIFFERENT. IT IS WHAT IT IS. WE HAVE TO WATCH THE FILM AND SEE WHAT WE HAVE TO DO THAT ARE TO PLAY A GOOD TEAM NEXT WEEK. >>IT SEEMS YOU AND TY GURLEY WERE TRYING TO TOP EACH OTHER. >>NOT REALLY. I WANT TO DO WHATEVER I CAN TO HELP THE TEAM WIN. IT’S NOT REALLY ABOUT ME. IF I HAD ZERO YARDS AND WE WON, I WOULDN’T CARE. I JUST TRY TO DO WHAT I CAN TO HELP THE TEAM WIN. >>74-YARD RUN, TAKE ME THROUGH THAT PLAY. >>GREAT BLOCKING UP FRONT. JUST HAD TO TO THE END ZONE. >>YOU GUYS WON EIGHT IN A ROW AND BREAK IT HERE. EVEN THOUGH YOU WIN EIGHT, A LOT TO PLAY FOR THIS SEASON. >>WE STILL HAVE GAMES TO PLAY FOR, GAMES TO PLAY. ONE LOSS, WE WOULD HAVE LIKED TO WIN THAT NINE IN A ROW, BUT WE WILL WATCH THE FILM AND MAKE CORRECTIONS AND DO WHAT WE GOT TO DO NEXT WEEK. >>ONE OF THE FEW BRIGHT SPOTS HERE IN LOS ANGELES.>>WAIT UNTIL YOU GET TO THE DOME NEXT WEEK AND CAROLINA ROLLS INTO TOWN FOR THE AFTERNOON KICK. WHEN WE COME BACK, MIKE WILL TALK TO DREW>>>YOU CAN’T KNOCK WHAT SUCCESS THEY HAD AND THE BALANCE WE HAVE SEEN, ESPECIALLY WITH KAMARA. A PART OF ME WONDERS IF THERE IS A LITTLE BIT INSIDE THAT WANTS TO GET BACK TO THE CIRCUIT ’09 DAYS. 11 FOR 11. TWO TOUCHDOWNS. TODAY, TOO LITTLE TOO LATE. 46 SECONDS, RIGHT DOWN THE FIELD WITH FOUR PASSES AND A TOUCHDOWN. I WONDER IF HE WANTS TO PLAY A LITTLE BIT MORE OF THAT HURRY UP OFFENSE. >>I THINK THEY WANT TO DO THAT. YOU NEED TO BE BALANCED. AT THE END OF THE GAME, THE RAMS WERE GIVING IT TO HIM, AND HE STARTED MARCHING DOWN THE FIELD. THE REDSKINS GAME, HE SHOWED THERE IS A LOT LEFT. HE CAN ORCHESTRATE WHEN HE NEEDS TO. >>246 YARDS AND HAD A TOUCHDOWN LATE. HE SPENT TIME TO TALK WITH MIKE NEIGHBORS. >>DREW BREES JOINS US IN LOS ANGELES. YOU GUYS HAVE WON IN DIFFERENT WAYS.>>YEAH, IT WAS DISAPPOINTING IN THE RESULTS AND NEVER REALLY FELT LIKE WE HAD A RHYTHM GOING OFFENSIVELY. I THOUGHT THE DEFENSE FOUGHT EXTREMELY HARD AGAINST THEY REALLY EXPLOSIVE OFFENSE AND HELD THEM AT DAY FOR THE MOST PART. FOR US, WE HAD THE BIG RUN BY KAMARA IN THE FIRST HALF. WE DIDN’T GET MUCH GOING. WE DIDN’T RUN AS EFFICIENTLY AS WE WOULD HAVE LIKED. THERE WAS LIMITED OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE WE DIDN’T STAY ON THE FIELD. PART OF THE ACTIVE OF SUSTAINING DRIVES IS SO THAT YOU WILL GET THOSE OPPORTUNITIES. THE MORE PLAYS SOME OF THE MORE OPPORTUNITIES YOU HAVE TO GO DOWN AND SCORE.. I STILL FELT LIKE WE HAD THE ENTIRE SECOND HAVE TO DO THAT. JUST THE RHYTHM WASN’T THERE. PENALTIES SET US BACK AT TIMES. YOU GET IN THE THIRD AND LONG SITUATION AGAINST A TEAM LIKE THIS, LISTEN, I THOUGHT THE GUYS UP FRONT DID A GOOD JOB ALL GAME. AT TIMES, THEY WILL GET YOU. WHEN YOU GET THIRD AND LONG SITUATION, YOU ARE INVITING THAT. >>SEAN SAID IT WAS A LACKLUSTER WEEK OF PRACTICE. WAS THE ENERGY DOWN?>>I DIDN’T, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, SEAN DOES A GREAT JOB HAVING A BEAT ON WHERE WE ARE. GUYS ARE TEAMED UP. WE NEED TO TAKE THE PADS OFF AND MAKE SURE THE GUYS ARE READY TO ROLL. THE OBJECTIVE IS, HOW DO I GET MY TEAM READY TO PLAY ON SUNDAY TO BE AS PREPARED AND HEALTHY AS THEY ARE? I THINK SEAN DOES A GREAT JOB WITH THAT EACH AND EVERY WEEK. WE HAVE TO DO BETTER. WE HAVE TO DO BETTER. WE ARE PREPARED TO WORK AS HARD AS WE NEED TO WORK TO GET BACK ON TRACK AND TURN THINGS AROUND SUNDAY WHEN WE TAKE THE FIELD AGAINST THE PANTHERS AT HOME. >>YOU CONVERTED A BIG FOURTH AND 5. ON FOURTH DOWN, YOU GO FOR THE FIELD GOAL. WAS THERE A DISCUSSION ON THE SIDELINE?>>YEAH. I MEAN, IT A TOUGH DECISION. YOU GET THE TOUCHDOWN CALLED BACK, UNFORTUNATELY. THE PENALTY. THERE IS THAT THOUGHT OF, HEY, FROM A MOMENTUM STANDPOINT, IF WE CAN’T SCORE, IT’S A ONE-POSSESSION GAME. A TOUCHDOWN WINS IT AT THAT POINT. THOSE ARE TOUGH DECISIONS. WE TOOK THE POINT. WE GET THE ONSIDE KICK, WE GET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY. >>YOU WERE HAPPY WITH THE FINISH, THAT I KNOW YOU WEREN’T HAPPY WITH WHAT THE OFFENSE DID AND WHAT THIS TEAM DID. WE HAVE CONCERNS WITH PENALTIES. WHAT DO YOU DO TO CORRECT THAT TO TRY TO REBOUND NOW?>>IT STARTS WITH A WEEK OF PRACTICE, COMING INTO THE GAME AS CONFIDENT AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN WITH WHERE YOU ARE IN THE GAME PLAN AND HOW YOU ARE GOING TO ATTACK THE DEFENSE. THERE IS ALWAYS THE ELEMENT OF EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED. HOW DOES THAT CHANGE WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO COUNTERACT THAT? AT THE END OF THE DAY, THERE IS A TEMPO THAT WE PLAY WITH THAT CREATES THAT RHYTHM FOR OURSELVES. WE DICTATE THAT TO THE DEFENSE. MAN, THAT IS OUR OFFENSE. THAT’S PRIORITY NUMBER ONE TO GET BACK ON TRACK, THAT TEMPO AND RHYTHM. >>IT’S AMAZING HOW TOUGH THE NFC SOUTH IS. THERE ARE STILL SO MANY IMPORTANT GAMES LEFT, BEGINNING WITH CAROLINA. >>YEAH, THERE ARE. THIS IS EXCITING. THIS IS WHEN IT GETS REALLY FUN AND WHEN WE NEED TO BE AT OUR BEST. GREAT WEEK OF PRACTICE. REGROUP. WE WON EIGHT GAMES IN A ROW. WE DROPPED ONE HERE, ONE THAT WE FEEL THERE WERE OPPORTUNITIES WE DIDN’T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF. AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU HAVE TO GET BETTER FROM THESE AND FEEL THAT THIS LOSS IS GOING TO SERVE US WELL IN THE FUTURE BECAUSE OF WHAT WE WILL LEARN FROM THEM. >>DREW BREES HERE IN LOS ANGELES. THIS TEAM HOPING TO REBOUND. BACK TO YOU GUYS. >>THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WORK WHEN WE COME BACK, HIGHLIGHTS FROM FOUR TEAMS. ALL FOUR TEAMS ARE THE TEAMS REMAINING ON THE SAINTS’ SCHEDULE. SOME OF THEM MORE THAN ONCE. WE WILL>>>BUCCANEERS IN ATLANTA TAKING ON THE FALCONS. MOHAMED SANU AND THE WILDCATS. HE PICKS IT UP. LOOK AT THIS. 51 YARDS TO JULIO JONES. 10-3. MATT RYAN BACK IN HIS OLD POSITION. HE THROWS TO JONES. 17-3, FALCONS. TAMPA BAY TRIES TO GET BACK INTO IT. BARBER TO THE LEFT. OUTSIDE AND GOES IN UNTOUCHED. 27-13. IN THE FOURTH, DEVON COLEMAN, 14 YARDS HERE. YOU HAVE TO GO BACK FOUR, FIVE, SIX WEEKS. YOU WISH YOU PLAYED THEM EARLIER IN THE YEAR. HERE THEY COME. THE FALCONS WIN 34-20 OVER THE BUCK. BOTH TEAMS ON THE SCHEDULE. THE NEXT TEAM ALSO RESIDES IN THE NFC SOUTH. THE PANTHERS TOOK ON THE JETS. STEPS BACK AND UNLOADS IT. 54 YARDS FOR ANDERSON. 17-12, JETS. FOURTH QUARTER, 20-18, JETS. McCOWN WIN SACKED. 34 YARDS ON THE RETURN. JUST LIKE THAT, 26-20, PANTHERS. CAROLINA WITH THE PUNT RETURN. 60 YARDS. BYE-BYE. IS SO GOOD THAT THE PANTHERS WOULD ADD A FIELD GOAL. THAT IS HOW IT WINDS UP. THE PANTHERS ON A 35-27 WIN. IT FEELS GOOD TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A WIN AGAINST THE PANTHERS ALREADY IN YOUR BACK POCKET. THE SAINTS AND PANTHERS ARE BOTH 8-3 OVERALL. THE SAINTS ARE 2-0. FEWEST GAMES IN THE DIVISION. THE PANTHERS, 2-1. THEY COME HERE AT HOME. THE FALCONS EVEN WITH THE SAINTS IN TERMS OF GAMES PLAYED. THEY WILL MAKE THAT UP. THE BUCKS AT 4-7. ALL RIGHT. THAT IS THE STANDINGS. NOW THE STRETCH RUN AS WE GET INTO THE MONTH OF DECEMBER. WE WANTED TO SEE HOW THE SAINTS WOULD DO. FIRST IT WAS THE GREEN BAY GAME, THEN THE BUY. THEY STARTED TO GET TOUGH. YOU GET THE WIN. TODAY AGAINST THE RAMS. NOW YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE SOUTH. LET’S FOCUS ON WHERE THE IMPORTANCE IS FOR THE SAINTS. I KNOW IT STARTS NEXT WEEK AGAINST CAROLINA. >>WE WILL SLICE AND DICE THIS UP. FIVE GAMES REMAINING, YOU LOOK AT THE GAMES THAT YOU GET AT HOME IN THE DOME. THREE AIMS OUT OF THE FIVE AT HOME. WHEN YOU BREAK THIS UP EVEN MORE, THIS IS GOING — I THINK THE GOAL IS TO WIN THE NFC SOUTH. THESE GAMES ARE GOING TO DECIDE THE BIGGER GAME BETWEEN THESE TWO. THE FALCONS TWO MORE TIMES. AFTER THAT, YOU BREAK IT DOWN. THE REASON I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT IS BECAUSE DECEMBER 70 PLAY THE FALCONS ON A SHORT WEEK. THAT IS A TOUGH GAME. NOW YOU GET A TEN-DAY BREAK. A CHANCE TO FINISH THE SEASON STRONG. THE JETS AT HOME. WE THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO BE IN THE RUNNING FOR 0-16. BIG GAMES REMAINING, BUT YOU ALMOST GET THAT MANY BYE. >>YOU WANT TO TRY TO SPLIT. IF YOU CAN SPLIT, YOU HAVE THE JETS AND THE FALCONS BACK-TO-BACK AT HOME. MAYBE THAT IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET MOMENTUM. NOW YOU FINISH AT TAMPA TO END THE SEASON. YOU MAY CATCH THE BUCCANEERS ARE READY TO HIT THE GOFF COURSE, SO THE NEXT FOUR GAMES, AT LEAST, SPLIT THESE NEXT TWO. >>I AGREE. IF YOU WANT TO WIN BOTH OF THEM, THIS CAROLINA GAME, YOU HAVE TO GET THIS GAME. I JOKED EARLIER THAT SAID THEY ARE THE WORST 8-3 TEAM. CAM NEWTON HAS NOT PLAYED LIKE AN MVP TO GET THE WIN. I THINK THE SAINTS MATCHUP THE BEST AGAINST CAROLINA. I THINK CAM NEWTON HAS BEEN VERY INCONSISTENT. I THINK THE FALCONS CAN GIVE THEM SOME TROUBLE. >>YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT THEM FOR WEEKS. HERE THEY COME. IT ALWAYS FEELS GOOD TO HAVE THAT WIN IN YOUR POCKET. GET TWO, IT COULD GO A LONG WAY. TREMENDOUS WEEK NEXT WEEK. DON’T FORGET, THE KICKOFF HAS THEN FLEXED. AFTERNOON KICK, BUT WE WILL BE HERE AT OUR REGULAR TIME. THE SAINTS INSIDER, WE INVITE THEM HERE WITH US HAS NOBODY WILL BE DOWN HERE WITH THE LATE KICKOFF. WE WILL BE HERE TO GET YOU READY FOR THE GAME AS PART OF SAINTS GAME DAY. THEN DEUCE McALLISTER WILL JOIN AND MYSELF IN THE STUDIO WITH ALL THE REACTION FROM THE LOCKER ROOM AND ERIC RICHIE BEHIND ENEMY LINES TO GET REACTION FROM THE CAROLINA LOCKER ROOM. THIS KICKS OFF A BIG FIVE-WEEK STRETCH FOR THE SAINTS. TOUGH LOSS FOR THE SAINTS OUT IN L.A. WE WILL SEE IF THEY CAN REBOUND. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THEN. FROM ALL OF US HERE, THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING
