Saints WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore Named to USA TODAY Sports’ 21st Annual All-Joe Team

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 02/13/2013 – 4:51 pm

New Orleans Saints WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore were named to USA TODAY Sports’ 21st annual All-Joe team, USA TODAY announced  NFL Experience Saints lockeroom images.All Images Copyright Michael C. HebertWednesday.

The All-Joe team was created in 1992 and honors the “unsung Joes” in the NFL. Only players who have never been named to the Pro Bowl are eligible and each NFL team is represented on the squad.

USA TODAY on Colston: Six 1,000-yard receiving seasons and 58 TD grabs, but he’s never been to a Pro Bowl. Seriously? But that will happen when you’re a wideout who merely works hard and says nothing. Colston is one of those players we’d like to see graduate beyond All-Joe recognition.

USA TODAY on Moore: He seems to have finally swatted the injury bug. Great. He just turned in his first 1,000-yard season. Impressive. Of his 65 catches, 55 produced first downs. All-Joe.

Colston’s 2012 campaign was among his most explosive and productive, as he was once among league receiving leaders and the club’s leader in most categories. The only Saints wideout to appear in every contest, as he played in every game for the first time since 2009, Colston ranked second on the team in receiving with 84 catches for 1,154 yards (13.9 avg.) and a club-high ten touchdown grabs. His 65 first downs also led the club. He ranked 16th in the NFL in receptions, 13th in receiving yardage, tied for seventh in touchdown receptions, 13th in third down receptions (24) and 17th in first downs.

In 2012, Moore finished ranked first on the Saints in yards per catch with 65 receptions for a career-high 1,141 yards (16.0 avg.) with six touchdowns. Moore and Colston combined to give the Saints only the second pair of wideouts in franchise history with 1,000 yard seasons (2001– Joe Horn, 81 receptions for 1,265 yards and Willie Jackson, 81 receptions for 1,046 yards).

Sean Payton on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike”

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 02/06/2013 – 3:13 pm

New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton appeared on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” Wednesday morning. Listen to the full interview here. Below are some payton_radiohighlights from the interview:

How he will be different this season after missing last season: “You take into account a lot of different aspects of our game. Prior to stepping away, (Bill) Parcells and I had this conversation about looking at your team differently and really the league. You are able to watch a lot more TV copies of game tapes. I received the coaches tapes on Tuesday so I was still able to stay in touch with the schemes, whether there are trends in the pistol offense or some of these other things. More importantly than that, you gain an appreciation for how special the job is that you have.

“The one thing that surprised me (that) I didn’t expect, is that it wasn’t the football, the Sundays and the competition that you missed as much the relationships that go along with it. The difficult thing is (there are) so many of our closest friends, our peers and people that we are used to talking to on a regular basis – Mickey Loomis, Joe Vitt, the players – then all of a sudden it’s quiet for eight months. That was the most challenging thing. The thing I appreciate most (about) coming back is the relationships. I think that is the same for any of us that end up leaving the game. I think that buzz in the locker room and the camaraderie.”

On what his first order of business was when he got back: “It was the second day of the Senior Bowl and I had a chance to catch up to speed with the staff. We had to make some tough decisions in regards to our defense. The very first thing that happens after the season is over with is your own evaluation of your own team. You are trying to properly grade where they are at as you make decisions going forward. We are going to be like so many teams and are going to have to make some tough salary cap related decisions.”

On where he stands in the process of hiring a new defensive coordinator: “We are going to bring in two to three candidates. I think we will know in a week. Much has been reported about Rob Ryan and he is going to come in and interview at the end of this week. We will have at least two to four candidates. One of the challenges in our league is trying to get even position coaches from other teams, you have to get permission from the other team. Just because it’s a promotion, it’s not a given that they would grant that permission. There are a couple of those requests out there to other teams in regards to position coaches that we would have interest in interviewing as a coordinator. I think within a week we will have a firm decision on that .”

NFL Network’s Michelle Beisner Showcased New Orleans’ Culture During Super Bowl Week

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 02/05/2013 – 12:55 pm

By Alex Restrepo/NewOrleansSaints.com

NFL Network’s Michelle Beisner did a number of features last week promoting New Orleans and its culture. Beisner showcased New Orleans’ Mardi Gras World, made beignets with S Roman Harper and attended a Treme Brass Band performance with DB Jabari Greer. She spoke with beisner1NewOrleansSaints.com about her experience in the Crescent City:

How has your time been in New Orleans?
“My role down here was to give everybody a backstage pass and to be sort of a travel guide with everything you could do and see. There are some very monumental things to do.”

How was baking beignets with Roman?
“We went to Café Du Monde and it wasn’t my first time making beignets. I did it on a previous show. Roman is such a great guy and he hung in there and got his hands dirty. He was in the dough and really having fun with it.”

You attended a Treme Brass Band performance with Jabari, how was that?
“What was so cool about Jabari is that he really is a jazz man. He loves it, lives it and breathes it. He asked more questions than I did. He did a little bit of signing too “When the Saints Go Marching In.”

How often do you get to visit New Orleans?
“This is probably my fifth trip down to New Orleans and every time it’s always a great time. It’s always something different. New Orleans is truly one of my favorite cities in the world. I have pretty high expectations for New Orleans and they never disappoint. It’s always a very good time.”

Drew Brees Talks About Sean Payton’s Return, Super Bowl

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 01/24/2013 – 3:44 am

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees appeared on NFL Network’s NFL Total Access Wednesday night from the Pro Bowl for an interview with Solomon Wilcots and Marshall Faulk . Watch the interview  brees_faulkhere. Below is a transcript of the interview provided by NFL Network PR.

On if he has spoken to head coach Sean Payton since he has been reinstated by the NFL:

“We exchanged text messages. I texted him just to say it’s great to have him back and look forward to seeing him Super Bowl week. I was actually on my way out here when I texted him, so I look forward to that. Glad that he has a chance to get back with his staff; I know he’s at the Senior Bowl in beautiful Mobile, Alabama right now scouting the young guys. He’s back to doing what he loves to do.”

On if he could have anticipated how much the Saints were going to miss not having Sean Payton last year:

“I knew we were going to miss him a lot. Here’s the thing: unfortunately our record doesn’t really signify the effort that I think our coaches put forth. I feel like our coaches did a phenomenal job this year, both offensively and defensively, under very tough circumstances obviously. Unfortunately our record doesn’t show that, but I know that he would be proud of those coaches. But you talk about a sense of urgency and an interesting offseason, this is going to be an intense offseason but it’s something we’re ready for because we want to get this thing back on track.”

On how much he enjoys coming to the Pro Bowl:

“I love coming to the Pro Bowl. I love being in Hawaii, it’s a great family vacation bringing the kids out here and watching them run around. Just being around the guys; it seems like every year whether it’s young guys or seasoned veterans that have been here before, that camaraderie and whether it’s talking football or just watching the kids play together. You appreciate it more and more the older you get but it’s great to be out here with my teammates as well, some guys from the Saints. Really enjoy every chance you get.”

On the city of New Orleans hosting the Super Bowl:

“The city is extremely excited. This will be the 10th Super Bowl that New Orleans has hosted. There have been some great ones there over the years. Obviously there is no better place to throw a big event or a big party or a big parade than in New Orleans; they know how to do it, they do it right. Everything is very centralized…There is going to be plenty going on.”

New Orleans Saints Players Discuss Sean Payton’s Return

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 01/23/2013 – 1:38 am

Below are quotes from New Orleans Saints players on the NFL reinstating Head Coach Sean Payton on Tuesday: Jacksonville Jaguars 27 - New Orleans Saints 24 (L)

OT Zach Strief:
“It’s a big deal for us. I think the sooner we got him back, the better. We expected him back in a couple of weeks but to get him back early will be really important. I know losing coaches and putting staffs together, it’s important to have him there. I think, more than anything, it’s a big emotional boost, not only for the team but for the organization.”

LB Curtis Lofton:
“It’s a great way to start off the 2013 season with our leader back. Everybody is ecstatic about it and it’s going to be good to actually get to talk to him. We are putting 2012 in the past and we are starting 2013 on a positive. I don’t know Sean as well as most of these other guys but I look forward to being able to sit down and talk to him to get to know him better as a coach and person. I am looking forward to this season.”

C Brian de la Puente:
“I think Sean is a great leader and to have a leader like that back is priceless so we’re excited to have him back. We don’t like going on the past and we like looking forward to the future. Having coach Payton back will really let us do that. We’re excited to have him back and we’re looking forward to the future.”

K Garrett Hartley:
“It’s always great to have your guy back. He means so much to this organization, not just to players but to fans as well. We’re excited about it and ready to officially start the 2013 season.”

FB Jed Collins:
“Everybody has been asking about it and everybody is excited. Our response is real simple – our season started today. It was a tough and long year, we learned a lot and hopefully we improved from it but we’re already looking at what’s to come.”
