It’s a hard act to follow when the GM, Head Coach, and Assistant Head Coach have put together one of the model franchises in the NFL, however, none of them can’t be in touch with the team due to the bounty suspensions. Interim Head Coach Aaron Kromer is going through just that. Sean Payton who is largely credited for the building of Saints into a NFL powerhouse, can’t even give advice to his replacement. Payton, who is an icon in New Orleans for his work during the Katrina hurricane, as much as his work as the Head Coach for the Saints, can’t lift a finger to help.

Aaron Kromer joined Deke Bellavia and Bobby Hebert on WWL in New Orleans to discuss the state of the 0-4 Saints, and if they can turnaround a season that seemed doomed from the start.

“We have to find a way to get a four-man rush to have more effect on the quarterback, and we have to find a way with the blitzes to get there and pressure this quarterback.”

“We have to do a better job on those 19 runs of blocking and running. We can count numbers and how many reps we have running and how many we don’t have, but the fact is when we dial up a run play, we have it designed in practice, they show us the look, they do the things that we planned on doing. We have to execute it better, and we didn’t do that. And we have to get that fixed. We have to continue to work at it to get the right pieces in. Some guys are, individually, are letting us down, and we can’t let that happen, we’ve gotta get better at that.”

“Any time you can get our offense two more opportunities with the football and stopping their opportunities, it’s going to be a huge factor in the game. And obviously that put us in position to win it at the end, those two things, and whether it be a kick or a catch at the end, we could have won that game. Should have.”

“We’re so much better now than we were Week 1 and 2. We’re not the same team, and we’re getting to that point, we’re ready to bust out at any time now, and that’s exactly what I told the guys. If they can’t sense it, then they’re blind — they’re not paying attention — because we’re a way different team, a way more intense, attacking football team than we were in Week 1 and Week 2. And we just need to convert that to a win.”
