New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers | NFL Week 13 2022


On what happened in the last two possessions:
“I mean Tom Brady was Tom Brady. He was meticulous and stayed within plan of his dink-and-dunk mentality. He had the one sentence that he sailed and they bailed him out with the flag and that was costly. I think “The defense made some plays today and we have to be able to capitalize on everything. I think there were still a few more out there. I think the deflected ball by myself, I could have had an interception there. That would have put us in a position to win. I think Shy Tuttle put his hand on the ball, if we could turn that into another turnover. Whatever it is, we have to put it on ourselves to try and get another turnover. I think Double-D (Demario Davis) with that interception in a crucial situation was phenomenal. I think Carl Granderson was holding the edge the way he was supposed to because if they were going to run and cut in front of where I am, then another defense. man has to make those kinds of plays. I think the guys had a plan of attack and I think ink Tom just stuck with it. Again, he just got the ball out as fast as he could because it wasn’t like we weren’t getting there. The last two games we were getting there and the ball was out. I can’t stop the boys. So whatever it is, it’s very frustrating not to come away with a win when you’re up 16-3 in the fourth and lose, whatever the final score. That’s been kind of the story of the year and that…not winning football.”

On how you process a loss like this as a player:
“You don’t. It hurts. You don’t process anything. I have to go into a bye week knowing we should have beaten this team. The first time we should have beaten this team. This time, we should have beaten Carolina. We should have beaten to a lot of other teams. We didn’t. Right now, these are the facts. This is what we’re up against. We’re beyond an uphill battle. We’ve got to fight our way out of these last four games.”

On this victory that seems to hurt more than the others:
“I’m —- off after every loss. I mean there’s nothing in me that says this team doesn’t have the talent to win and the fact that we’re not showing it every time they come in and out hurts.” even more. I think we had a good game plan. The last Tampa game, they came to our house and it was 3-3 in the fourth quarter, now we were up 13 this time. We can’t let it go. “I’ve beaten this team by holding them to nothing. You don’t beat a team if they beat you. I don’t know how that works. So whatever it is, it has to be about us. Over the last four games, it will be clearly indicated by how we play We won’t give up. We won’t do anything but keep fighting. But that’s it, we have to eliminate these bugs. We have to be able to play perfect games. I don’t know if that’s possible to play a perfect game, but we have to fight for perfection and it has to be every time we come back as a team.”



On missed plays that cost the team a chance to win:
“For me, when I watch the game, mine was one of the biggest (plays). A tough loss.”

On processing a difficult loss:
“I felt like we had the ball good. I just think at critical points in the game, we had chances and we didn’t make the plays. You give a guy like Tom [Brady] weather [and] tends to figure it out as the game progresses.”

On Rashid Shaheed’s performance:
“When his number was called, he made plays. He made plays on special teams, too, to give this team a nice lift. That’s the kind of player we all know he is and (everyone else) is getting to see.”

On his feelings before the bye week:
“I’m ready to get to another [game] as fast as possible.”



On the fight and the heart of the team this season:
“Oh yeah, that’s what we do. We have dogs on this team. We have players on this team. None of us give up. Every time we’re on the field and we get a chance to play, they’re going to play full force speed”.

On whether the team’s heart will be tested at the end of the season:
“You have to find a way to go deep, keep pushing. We have a few games left and we have to find a way to keep fighting.”

On whether he felt the defensive ‘mojo’ was there:
“Yeah, like I said, we played a solid game. The offense played a solid game. The special teams played a good game. We just have to find a way to bring it home.”
