(on the sequence in the second quarter where the Saints were called for multiple penalties in the red zone*_)_*

It was very hard. We can't worry about what the refs call and stuff like that. We have to be able to stop those guys in those situations. We can do that, we just have to get back to the drawing board and figure it out. We'll be better next week.

(on the roughing the passer penalty*_)_*

There's nothing I can do about it. I didn't think it was a roughing the passer, but the ref did, so we just have to keep going and keep playing and find a way to get off the field.

(on what a defender is supposed to do in the roughing the passer situation*_)_*

I don't know what you're supposed to do, just keep playing hard. Hopefully they don't call it the next time. That's all I told him, just keep playing hard, just keep getting to the quarterback. That's all you can do.

(on not letting frustrations boil over after two straight losses)

No, we just have to get back to the drawing board. It isn't like we're a horrible team. We're a legendary team. We just have to figure out a way to win, and we're going to do that. Get to practice on Monday, get to watching the film, figure out the corrections, and we're going to get to it.

(on if it's a bigger job for himself and Saints linebacker Demario Davis to keep spirits up as the team leaders)

No, I think everybody's still hungry. Like I said, we just have to get back and figure out the corrections we can make and the little things. Once we fix the little things, we'll be better.

(on if there were a lot of players hanging heads in the locker room)

When you lose, you're going to see that. It's better when you win, you'll see everybody happy. And when you lose, you're supposed to be mad. You're supposed to hate losing. You just have to take it upon yourself and look at yourself and see what you can do better to help the team and just figure it out.
