What he said about today's, uh, start.
So let me go ahead and do that.
Everyone will have tasting here.
Questions in the chat first questions from maybe, just, I guess, this week.
When did you find out that you were gonna start? Um, I had a pretty good idea early in the week.
Uh, monday Tuesday.
Um, but that I was gonna get to start, so that confirms.
Confirms a wait and wait today.
Did you did you pay attention? Any of the e guess the chatter from national talking heads about me to criticize and move to start you at all? No.
Not not to be Not to be really disrespectful anyway, Uh, I don't I don't pay attention any that ****, to be honest with you.
Look, I think he did a good job today.
I think he did an excellent job.
I don't really give a **** with the national pundits set.
I really don't care.
Well, uh, it was Sean Payton stoicism toe start tasting help.
Plain and simple.
So I look at it this way.
I know they're gonna have a lot of bs, um, from the arm.
But the truth of the matter is luck.
This is some, um, concerning the saints not concerned in the national media.
So let's go ahead and play what he had to say.
Um, care about the things that those closest to my friends, my family, my teammates and my coaches and, you know, get to this level you can you have that television and, uh, do anything.
Somehow much game plan.
Did you guys scale back? Maybe on designed runs.
I know you get a bunch later, but it seems like early I think the first one you did was the touchdown.
How much did you feel? Like you guys scaled back on that and let you be a passer? Yeah.
Um, significantly way.
Obviously, we had a couple in.
You have to grant a couple, uh, incredible situations where we felt like way had an advantage Way needed it.
But what you saw at the game in terms of carries is it's about what I expected.
Jeff Duncan e u and Drew are tight.
What was he like for you this week? Going into this first start, Andrew is the best.
You know, they found being honest.
I didn't really understand what it took to be a starter in Beautiful.
Um, until I got had the opportunity, withdrew Andrews with me every step of the way.
This week we watched film.
He was constantly asking me what I needed and how he could be helpful.
Uh, and so he was.
And then he was so critical when he was such a comfort, You know, for me, Thio have around e look up in so much, become one of my best friends.
Johnson, Isaac, You post that video from from BYU yesterday, How much of this week was kind of any spent reflecting on the journey that contribute to this point? And did you feel like a sense of pay off today? Um, e spent a lot of time reflecting.
Um, this week my life and I had had so many conversations about where we've been the process in here, and, uh, me and I said it was an emotional meet e a lot of love from a lot of people.
And, uh, it was over a good way way spent a lot of time with ****ing and then way have to come out in the first start.
It was gratifying more than anything.
And I have so much long respect for for during my few minutes that I wanted to make sure that I did my part to help us continue.
I imagine you've been waiting for this moment for a very long time.
So you're quick evaluation of just coming up to feel how you feel.
Like it went right.
And what is a couple of things that maybe you're sticking in your car a little bit coming off? Yeah.
Overall, I was happy with was happy with what we did.
You know, I think the person would you come out? You look at what Turnovers.
And I was really disappointed that I put the ball on the ground late in the game so much I was a driver.
We can just put the game away, and and I called him off, and I was disappointed in that, um, I missed a couple of knows.
We've all, um just kind of started out of my hand and e think the base things are easy to fix Uh, overall about looking at, you know, motor break and everything down I was having e, but I mean a man.
It was a collective effort to get this one my triple E.
So my two quick ones, um, the first is on your second touchdown run.
Obviously, that looked like it was a design past where you scrambled.
You said you took a lot of the design runs out of the offense, but you have that ability to do that.
Is there? Is there every kind of a constant battle in your head to try to get to the 2nd and 3rd read knowing knowing that your legs are so dangerous? Uh, no, I would say that, you know, as I prepared this week, Look, I always know that I have the ability with things break down that I can I make a boy and I had a conversation with almost students going into the game and I said, Listen, just just be ready by escaped the pocket it to people because there is a place that we had, you know, situations like that.
But my mindset was, man, let's keep your eyes down the field and let's find opportunity for those guys.
But they didn't move specific reference.
Um, we're hoping to get a heavier, uh, run cell and get the ball of your iPhone.
And the falcons covered it well, and that was one of those situations where is trying to get the ball to manual.
They covered a and, uh, presenting a boy on you.
Don't pay attention to the critics, but do you appreciate sort of.
What do you need? Curiosity.
You are, you know, getting your first NFL start.
I guess at this stage of your career and and somebody people wondering what this is Tokyo Um, I'm not sure having e I will say that My focus, my time, my attention, this but preparing.
I wanted a football game today, and that was that was about it.
Did you feel like, especially in the first down, that they were giving you more heavy books because maybe they didn't know what they were going to get from you? Either way.
Um, but they were giving us a heavy box, you know, kind of a run front, and then they were dropping out, complaining while his own behind it.
So, you know, look, that's one of the things that makes Coach Payton coach Payton.
So we made a lot of a lot of adjustments, a lot of play action pass this week, and that was really because of what they were doing.
Last question for any just yeah, with you focusing on being the starting quarterback this week.
How weird was it? Thio to not be involved in like special team stuff said, You know, being the white students identical back and everything else s, it was definitely different.
You know, I think, um, the biggest difference was obviously stepping into the role and making sure that a z Q being related to practice and you run those meetings of practice and everything else, but so it was significantly different, in a way, a fun last week And today, thanks to Jason Priestley.
So now first question for maybe just eight secs for y'all collectively today, but gives you started seeing in the last two games against Atlanta.
Is this something? I guess when you're playing against Atlanta that just allows you to have that much success.
Well, uh, it's really game plan and execution.
I mean, sacks come when DVs air covering linebackers recovering or blitzing and then deal on and finishing our look.
So I mean, it's a team game for a reason.
Nothing can get done if we're not working on 11 guys together.
Uh, can had three *** today.
How big is that for you all when he gets going like that? I mean, he's, of course.
And then he's one.
He's been talking about it all week.
I mean, this is you know what he would he visualized what he planned on doing.
He executed his plan.
Obviously, a three sec game is something special.
E think that's seven in the last two for him.
So I mean, he's eaten.
And whenever he's rolling, I mean the energies up, everybody's right.
That's a get that flattery.
Older trade seems like a lot of times, uh, not actually has to hold onto the ball a little too long just because of the play of the back end.
I mean, how how much have you seen that side grow? Especially, I don't know.
Last month, month and a half it seems like they've been proved.
I mean, they're doing a great job where it's, you know, getting into film, you know, putting in practice in and the extra extra stuff.
And then they're all over these guys.
I mean, the back, Then you can't stand up.
Like I said, I said, clean, you know that we met that stuff to come by.
So, you know, like having that extra second.
It goes a long way.
They come here can.
I don't like to talk a lot about yourself with paying.
A lot happens across the league today.
You might be leading the league.
And when Saxon type of lea leaving sacks by the end of the day, I mean, just say about I heard you work.
Is that just a testament that all the work you put in to get to this punch? Well, uh, one everything I do you know, my wife is buying.
It seems to be doing a great job supporting me and together in faith.
I'm telling you like, uh, you know, Jesus Christ is my lord and savior and it z everything is coming together off the field and especially see what's happening on the field, so I'm just going to get out next week.
Did you feel like things weren't in order off the field before you? Just more in order now off the field.
Quite better on the no, I just through adversity, you know, if it was, you know, inactive or, you know, dealing with injuries.
You know, you have to keep that faith.
You know, you kind of have to just work through.
That thing is, that's amazing.
That's what I believe.
Good things happen when you keep the faith, keep moving forward and you never You never doubt yourself.
What was your process for you to find out? Perspective? Thio.
Get through a lot of stuff and I get to a place where you could handle that adversity better and then get better on the field in your office.
That's why I give so much credit, you know, Christ and my wife, you know, through the process of us, you know, reading the word, all these things about adversity and games.
Thio Beautiful thing when you just keep moving forward and you praise God the okay album.
Let's play Alvin Kamara What he said ever again.
Okay, Larry, you wanna go ahead? Look, uh, just your overall thoughts on Jason's first start in the NFL.
Hey, Gotta win. Obviously.
So that that's not too bad.
He did well in his first start. He was crying.
He was pretty composed, you know? He settled into the game.
Um, it's a pretty pretty quickly.
Um, and he just executed.
He wants even had that big shot Thio Emanuel.
You know, he probably would have wished that we went through, but, you know, I'm around.
He played clean, e you know that.
Jeff Duncan, you don't have money.
Uh, Alvin, a lot of focus has been on, obviously tastes, um, taking over.
But it seems like you guys last week kind of jumped to the conclusion of it.
Doesn't matter who goes down.
This team can, you know, is playing so well right now, it can absorb any lost Mike Thomas earlier this year.
Can you just discuss just how confident the team is playing, no matter who you lose? Yeah, I kinda answered this something earlier in the week, but I have seen the Brazilian, You know, we got this mentality you know this.
It's a mentality that throughout the locker room, well, it's the next man up type of thing.
So you know what goes down, and it is what it is.
This game was. It's not for one person.
Everybody knows that. It's nothing personal.
It's just it's the nature of our game.
So, you know, next person got to step up and be ready and prepared and what they have to do.
And, you know, in that case, it takes having to step up and, you know, prepare and do all the things he has to do be able to come out here executing with the menu.
We gotta win some really good, baby.
Just, uh my China had a huge game today.
Just how important is that? They all to see him get going like that? It's good to see him get out there and, you know, have the type of production he used to.
You know, obviously being entered this stuff, you know, anybody I mean, especially somebody because they're supposed to this him being injured and, you know, having to battle back battle back.
But, you know, you just gotta, you know, you gotta keep your mind writing and, you know, try toe, try to bounce back and, you know, do anything you can Thio helping.
And, you know, I think he's getting closer with 100% healthy.
You know, he had a good game today, brought up, have more tell, you know, I'm sure you're quite familiar with Haitians.
Athleticism, which would make it something to kind of take off and run when you don't see what you want to see right off.
Unlike what your impressions were of his kind of patients employees and delivering Throw it right before he got creating a couple of times, e think.
I mean, this is all these his first name starting.
But, you know, even though he doesn't start e, I mean, we see him in practice, he does the same thing.
I mean, he prepared the same way Drew prepares.
So, you know, I'm not.
I was I was never in doubt that about his his decision making, you know, his ability to sit in the pocket and, you know, make those and do things like that, you know, it's just I mean, it was his first started.
I was that I was happy that.
You know, he actually, you know, put that on tape.
And, you know, I was able to display that e don't want to say anything and take away from this performance.
I mean, he had a he had a performance.
E think this is your first game in your career without a catch That feel that feel weird to use all in a different was the offense today with e way, we really have e ain't gonna have to catch the ball.
I mean way, any type of way to even onto the native American.
You gotta wear my trip.
E talked about starters going down, injured and having the resilience to replace.
Now, what about the games where you guys have been down in the first half this season? It was another one.
Now, even though it feels spectrum is about five hours ago right now, But what is it about the confidence level this team continues to have, even even when the score is, um, going the right way early in the game? Uh, this game will be very funny.
The first person that got, you know, one of the game.
So, uh, you know, it is what it is.
Sometimes the opponent's courts first.
Sometimes we scored first, but, you know, just becomes opponent scores person.
You know, it doesn't, You know, it doesn't take us out of what we wanna do.
It doesn't discourage.
That's really you know, we just No, we got a hit and we know we gotta play hard And we know we gotta, you know, a lot of things we gotta dio executing and, you know, put ourselves in position to win.
So then be enough.
I don't think it raises a zone offense or C.
Amy, just the defense has really been doing today.
Who said when they play? Well, how much do you also don't know that? Um I mean, obviously they play like so it helps a lot, You know, when they're out there.
I think Atlanta was probably two for 11 or 12 on third down, like, 18%.
So I mean, you just you just tracking that of you.
It's like you can't go long, you know, a zone offense is just it's a political, But know that the Detroit is getting off the fuel that such a high rate, Get the ball back, fall back in our hands to be able to go down there.
And this was good.
No last question that Underhill.
You guys have shown that wildcat passes a couple of times this year, and we've seen you throw the ball back to the fact that you could spend it.
You can't planet all the patrol passed out of that Some part.
This is, um it might be coming.
You know, I don't want to get away.
I don't want to shake my hand too much.
Uh, I might have been, you know, warming up in the locker room and throwing a couple of passes.
You know, that's not a lot of space, but I was just making sure my army but, um e might go on. I don't know.
You know? Okay, Michael Thomas.
Let's go ahead and play Michael Thomas.
What he had to say about today's game.
Oh, next we'll go ahead, and I just just you're just initial impression on the day case of Mad and just how different the offensive allies.
They're not different.
The offensive was with him a quarterback and B that signed blah, blah, blah.
Just get your initial impressions on taste.
Somehow he played today and just how the office operated with them in their set of Drew.
Man, you been tremendous.
Um, I could tell all throughout the week in preparation, I could see the look in his eyes.
He was ready for the moment.
Every day you found a way of women day, and he gets progressive.
Progressed today and everyone saw I'm very proud of him.
And, man, I'm going.
Also worried because I'm waiting for that moment a show doing you stop a lot of room for improvement.
That's exciting thing, Larry.
How much do you feel? The offense changed? How much do you feel? I could stay the same to it.
You may be accustomed to, um you know, Sean, with England.
While they're excellent, the best our abilities way.
Don't worry too much about, um, you know, anything else just makes keeping are playing, going out there playing fast and simple, making a place and numbers car.
And, you know, our defense playing lights out today.
So it was just a fun game out there seem a lot of guys step up from your place.
Just in terms of you personally.
Individually, a lot of passes.
Let me talk to you.
Speak to your confidence level.
Didn't mean out of break game shape.
Everything that has Essentially, you're coming back from injury, man.
I'm just out here, uh, Thio compete with my teammates and secure victims.
Uh, my body will help with the else is a process.
It's a long season.
Um, right now, in the middle of the season.
I mean, everyone's like them or something so long to find ways to improve and tried to keep working.
Jason McCue many, uh, hearing my teammates on the book.
Johnson, you talked about Jason's week of preparation? Was it any different with him? A za quarterback, Just different level of focus.
Different level of just command.
How did that kind of work now he was ready.
Always ready for his opportunity.
Uh, you know, you know, you know, his number was being called, and he went out there, and it was his, uh, staying.
And I'm just proud of him.
Get away To see what he does next week.
Listen, he's a football player.
A lot of discipline.
He loves the game.
I love playing with that.
Like the second quarter you guys didn't connect on.
Was that the same call later in the game? I think you've got a 20 yard gain or something like that coming back, I think in the third quarter there, Um, which one, though, could terrible dropped my hat.
You guys run that play back.
You guys were in the back, you know, work this second, you guys e don't think we ran that play exactly back, But I was disappointed myself and then drop, you know, take a fast boy E.
That was a great ball e on this fast today with great One point I could have called him or that was 100% on me, but we actually moved on, and I feel like I got better.
E just just e a little bit of people on the on the ball a just with my hands, that ball.
You know, my trip.
How confident will you that that you're gonna have one of these games with a lot of opportunities coming up soon? And did you get frustrated at all by you know, the last couple of weeks and not being as involved as you're used to are.
You knew this was kind of It's a long evening s a long season.
One thing I knew government, let's make a new that our team needed needed Thio executed high level.
And I knew that opportunity was here.
Another thing Waas chasing me.
I just want to be out there and help them and support them and have them back.
So, e, that goes with a lot of receivers to get straight and we can play to help them have.
This office has said maybe, just yeah.
I mean, you can say well today ***, Too many assumptions, How much y'all on offense feed off about when they're playing so well? 100% 100% a special teams that made some great plays today to defuse a pass rush.
You know, uh, Atlanta has very receivers secondary to a tremendous smooth, You know that that difference right there is trending in the right direction and homicide to see see how funny.
Oh, uh, also everyone knows that building.
So you keep stacking when we're getting better at a job E Brett Martel And like with tastings.
It could have been tempting, I think for him, you know, in his first start to just take off and run if you didn't see what he wanted right away.
But it looked like he hung in there, delivered some accurate throws.
His He was about to get hit pretty hard as a receiver.
What did you see in that regard, man? I was I was proud of him.
Just being on the guys around, you know, don't Don't take all those things.
You know, many of us allow us to make the right complement each other, and I feel like that's what we did.
Um, like I said, I'm just proud of you.
Daniels, Mike, you were targeting 12 times in the game in practice.
Or just when you guys were working together.
Did you sense any special chemistry between you and head or during the week? Or is this something you guys have developed over time? I feel like it's a combination, uh, development and just execution throughout the weekend.
Bike, you know, allowing you like running that route.
Come away on Sunday.
So, you know, I'm Yeah, and you know where to put the ball on just next to in the preparation.
That's how you build confidence about awakening on Sunday just gives me opportunity, you know, making much last one.
It might be pay attention at all when when people are, you know, kind of mouth and often doubting case, um, and stuff like you guys wanna, like, kind of produced with him.
Thio change that 100%.
And we have the same ship on our show that we're always trying to come out here and dominate and help this team win games and always put people on.
And people are living right.
So man like like, you know, either dog man taking the dog.
So yeah, they absolutely prove them wrong today, they absolutely prove them wrong.
You're gonna have these roll reporters that write stupid stuff about Taysom Hill and stuff like that.
But the truth of the matter is what, um, in this situation, the saints right now and just clicking on all selling us right now.
Look, sure you have breezes injury with 11 broken ribs and a collapse long, but unfortunately, but the truth of the matter is, this team is going to get better as we go through the weeks to come.
So let's go over to the Let's Go over to the last one.
Let's go over Thio, Cam Jordan, DeMario Davis on the sack.
Critics our Pettiness and stuff like that.
Let's go over to them, cook the button.
And that way I introduced, you know, one of the best dressed guys I know tomorrow way.
Don't know what's up.
Come back here with my God, the one and only doing Mr Record Holder for most science against my place.
That way, where's questions for any just.
Well, that's a good segue.
Texas cam in the last 2000, Things I just wanted to the way we talk about what we want to do as a defense way.
Put a game plan together in our idea.
Is depression that run and get him off the spot to make it feel uncomfortable talking on us.
Is the defense have overcome a lot? Have you said we do have What's that mean? That it's great.
Johnson Mhm e What was the what was the locker in reception like for taste? No.
After that, game anything? Yeah, basically, Just lights up, man.
It was great to see any of your brothers go in the game, ball out what she did.
And so his number is called Step in a Major Way.
Um, you know, executed.
We were in great position moving down the field, kept, you know, kept in front of the change.
And so when I office destroying when they get the ball is easy for the defense. But they like that.
They would like the company.
Wait, cattle job.
In case you somehow missed it on Twitter, Sean Payton just went and retweeted Ron White's proclamation that you guys were gonna lose.
So you still wish you love the Pettiness of this rivalry.
I mean, I know we ask you all this all the time, but, I mean, it's it's fun.
Like we have that run.
We have Julio Jones.
Albert, really engage Todd Gurley.
You know, they got a star studded cast just on off.
You could be on Jones and the whole defense back.
What kind of games and, um, look going in.
We have to fight, You know, all four quarters you plan to get in two weeks e was about was about to say I was asking about Pettiness, not talent level, but fair enough.
You are playing them again very shortly.
E got to get a better.
You gotta get four k on this on this camera situation like it's not doing light to my man suit being like it's not doing its crazy and blame.
That's something that you said something about the details.
Next question from any Jeff? Yeah.
Marsha, I'm not available to go today.
Um, just how important was it? Um that all y'all were during what you needed.
Todo help pressure, Matt, but also having the secondary step up to the point so you could take him like, however many times it was That always is this player after, I would tell Marshawn like Like he's king defense.
But he's playing however, the whole defense place, though.
High level I usually that same challenge Teoh markets today when he plays a number like the whole defense play whatever.
And you see, you got that pick back in playing, playing phenomenal day Keep us in mind, playing phenomenal.
But they're always around.
Linebacker, just run around here.
We still like to be second.
And so, you know, coaches in the challenge.
So I'm gonna get personal.
The quarterback, We gotta hear them changes what they do.
And so we were able to do that.
And, you know, that's what we got to continue to do it to be from that stretch.
You got to continue the rescue thing.
Plan continues to lock in on the process, right? Yeah, I've got another one.
Yeah, depending on how the rest of the day goes, you want to lead Trade could be leading the league in stock, but thank him off.
I mean, you're watching.
But how important has been this season, And how have you seen him? Both of you.
Kind of coming for the player, that is It has been huge.
I mean, look, you know, his whole four years here, he's been like, I'm alleged.
It's all about when you get your opportunity to shine.
And once he got his opportunity, he's been shining.
Hasn't looked back since.
I've been telling you guys for the last couple of years.
His kid Israel on the edge.
If I'm catching again, I'm catching doubles.
You got away, you see this? And if we double trade, I mean, I'm gonna myself trying to me and trade somebody coming down there.
You know, you got I'm not gonna say when they have *** here, but another, you know, give it on Monday.
But that was, well, monster in the middle of last question for Luke Johnson e e can.
Where did you put your confidence levels of defense at right now, Just considering the way I was still kind of turn things at the last couple weeks.
Um, our confidence is always gonna be a supreme high Every time we take the field.
When you talk about how we want to transcend just our regular standards, that's we're always trying to cheat, which are always striving for perfect game.
We realize that we're not perfect, so we'll continue trying to better yourself.
I pushed double d just like you push with me on the field to be a better player and a better person that should we do that the rest of our defense, we expect him to trying to push themselves to the limitation every time they get the opportunity.
So once again, camp Jordan DeMario Davis, the last ones.
Let's go ahead and wrap this up today we'll wrap this up.
On that note, um, on that note, once again, thanks for joining us for this edition of sports talk with Carolyn Marsh.
