Saints Post Sean Payton’s Kansas City Press Conference

Due to the server hacks many of you couldn’t watch coaches press conference live. So here is a link of it from the #Saints

NFL: New Orleans Saints-Press Conference Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Couldn’t watch it live, hop over to the Saints for coach’s Friday presser at the Chiefs.


Key comments from Payton were praising the Chiefs’ Offense, particularly QB Alex Smith, and significance of improved 3rd down numbers for the Saints. He pointed out he thought execution was as important as down and distance on 3rd down. Avoided mentioning the obvious, that fewer penalties from the O-line sure helps the down and distance and thus execution. We all saw how the penalties increased messing up momentum, once the substitution occurred for Andrus Peat. Tony Hills sure had some costly false start penalties which affected our drives.

Praised Kenny Vaccaro’s play both at being able to use him on and off the line as well as his tackling ability.

He had some fun with young #Saints fan, Jarrius Robertson, particularly going to him after an injury query about Stephone Anthony. Said I’d rather answer your questions anyway to Jarrius. You just know how Sean loves those injury questions during pressers. You’ll have to listen to the interview to hear the young fan’s list of request from the team. lol

Was pretty short when asked about Delvin Breaux as well.
