New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton

Post-Practice Press Conference

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Opening Statement:

“To cover the practice report for today, Reggie Bush (fibula) was limited; Patrick Robinson (ankle) was full; Jermon Bushrod (knee) was full; Junior Galette (shoulder) was full; Chris Ivory (shoulder) was full; Sedrick Ellis (quad) was limited; Jonathan Goodwin (back) was limited; Jeremy Shockey (rib) was limited; Malcolm Jenkins (neck) was limited; Anthony Hargrove (knee) was limited; Darren Sharper (hamstring) was limited; Usama Young (calf) was limited; Pierre Thomas (ankle) did not practice; Ladell Betts (neck) did not practice. There were a couple of roster moves: we released long snapper Jake Ingram and signed Justin Drescher. We placed Stanley Arnoux with his Achilles injury on reserve/injured and then brought up quarterback Sean Canfield from the practice squad to the active roster. In Canfield’s spot on the practice squad, we re-signed running back Chris Taylor. The roster is at 53 and the practice squad is at eight. With the short week, today was some base review and then a lot of third down.”

Reggie was listed as full yesterday but limited today. Was there a setback?
“No, it was just with the amount of reps that we gave him. He’s doing well; he’s handling it. It’s just a matter of the team reps.”

How do you feel about his chances for Thursday?
“Pretty good. He’s moving around and he continues to get better.”

Dallas had a lot of success with their pass rush against you last year. Is their pass rush having a good year this season?
“It’s very good. They threaten you on the edges with (DeMarcus) Ware and (Anthony) Spencer, and then inside they have some of the better pass-rushing tackles that we’ll see. When they get into some of their five-man rush, they can isolate your linemen and create problems. They do a very good job in the nickel in regards to how they pressure the quarterback. It can be a simple four-man scheme and it can come out of their 3-4 package. But it starts with the edge and like a said, I think the uniqueness is not only the outside rushers but also the inside rushers.”

With the way Stinchcomb is playing, after last year's game, Spencer has to be licking his chops. The Saints will have to help Bushrod on Ware with chips and a TE. No way can they afford to put in two TE's to help protect. Of course a good mix of run and pass will aid in slowing the pass rush down, but Brees will have to make some quick decisions back there because I don't think Stinchcomb is up for the task. I feel the Saints will look at last years game and focus on helping Bushrod with Ware.
