Quotable from Week 2 Edition of The Head Coaches on NFL Network
(Airs Mondays at 6:30 PM ET with replays at 8:30 and 10:00 PM ET)
Special Guest Interview: Saints Head Coach Sean Payton with Martz and Mariucci:
“His ability to decide and deliver is faster than anyone.” – Sean Payton on Saints QB Drew Brees
“The emphasis has been placed on getting the football…the aggressive approach that [Defensive Coordinator] Gregg [Williams] and his staff have taken has really caught on with the players.” – Sean Payton on the Saints new look on defense
“Statistically, he’s going to continue to be on top as he keeps playing with Sean Payton.” – Steve Mariucci on Saints QB Drew Brees
“The Dallas Cowboys should be getting more out of their passing game.” – Steve Mariucci on the Giants-Cowboys matchup
“He’s got Michael Vick and Jeff Garcia now, but as long as Donovan’s healthy, when he gets healthy, you go with Donovan.” – Jim Mora on the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback options
“He’s making his money on third down.” – Steve Mariucci on Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez
“Mike Nolan has got them playing defense. Don’t hand this off to the Chargers yet.” – Mike Martz on the Denver Broncos and the AFC West race
“The Niners have their swagger back.” – Steve Mariucci on the San Francisco 49ers
“When you’re 0-2 and don’t like your record, but you like your team, there’s nothing better than having a big game that you can refocus on.” – Steve Mariucci on the Tennessee Titans’ 0-2 record heading into their Week 3 matchup with the 2-0 New York Jets
“He knew what the play was going to be, I guarantee it. That wasn’t a blitz. He knew they were going to give the ball to [Darren] Sproles and he started running towards the line of scrimmage before the ball was snapped. He was going to take that gap, tackle him for a loss and win that game for his football team.” – Jim Mora on Ravens LB Ray Lewis’ tackle for a loss on Chargers RB Darren Sproles
“We’re going to be talking about Joe Flacco for a long time to come.” – Steve Mariucci on Ravens QB Joe Flacco
“I like it. It was Bill Belichick being Bill Belichick. That’s how he’s going to be. He’s not too much more informative after a win.” – Jim Mora on Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick’s postgame press conference after Week 2 loss to the New York Jets
