Packers-Saints post-game notes and quotes

Posted by Duke Bobber on September 9, 2011 – 12:48 am

GREEN BAY PACKERS HEAD COACH MIKE McCARTHY
(on Aaron Rodgers’ performance) “I thought Aaron was outstanding. Aaron commands the offense. He did an excellent job keeping us in favorable plays and no turnovers. It was three touchdowns. He had a big night and that’s the way Aaron plays. He has set that standard and he’s off to a great start.”

(on if defense made plays when they had to) “Yeah, definitely. There was one turnover in the game. Our defense made it. We wanted to play an up-tempo game. We were able to take advantage of the environment. We were able to get that done with the opening kickoff, going down to score. Our defense had a turnover. So the game started the way we would like it to start. You’d like to say it’s the way we planned it. But it was the way we would like it to. We had some problems defensively, but that’s a very good offense and he’s a great quarterback. Sean does a great job on offense. This will be a great experience we can learn from.”

(on Randall Cobb) “You’ve got to be excited about Randall. He’s shown that from the first day of training camp, his ability. He missed some time with the knee injury on the kickoff. When other players talk about a player having a chance to be special he is one of those guys. He’s very raw, he’s picking up our system, but he knows what to do when he gets the football in his hands and he knows how to get open. He’s a gifted young man with a lot of good football in front of him.”

(on being aggressive on offense) “Well, when you play Gregg Williams, he’s going to attack you. That was evident throughout the game. You look at what they try to do against us schematically. You’ve got to watch yourself. You try to play smart and try to pick a defense like that apart, and do the right thing, you get too strategic. So I’m always of the opinion that the offense attacks the defense. When you play a defense that likes to attack you, you’re going to have those types of nights one way or the other.”

PACKERS WIDE RECEIVER RANDALL COBB:
(on starting his career with a pair of touchdowns) “It was amazing. The feeling of being at Lambeau Field and coming off a Super Bowl, I was just doing anything I could do to contribute and I was trying to make the most of my opportunities tonight.”

(on his kickoff return for a touchdown) “I was just trusting in God. He told me to bring it out. I’m not supposed to bring that out – I’m not. Some things are logical and some things are just the power of God, and that definitely was the power of God telling me to bring that out. He gave me great teammates to help me block down field and we just made it happen.”

(on his touchdown reception) “The touchdown [Aaron Rodgers] threw to me was a busted route. I ran the wrong route and luckily scored. I’m going to hear about that in meetings tomorrow, probably going to get a negative for it, but we just made a play right there.”

(on the feeling of scoring his first touchdown) “It was one of the greatest feelings I’ve ever had. The opportunity to be out on the field and being with the guys I’m with, it was a great feeling – probably second to being drafted by Green Bay.

PACKERS LINEBACKER A.J. HAWK:
(on his pass-interference call in end zone) “I was just trying to jump over him and I think I kind of did, but obviously I didn’t. It’s just great to get that last stop. The stop on the 1-yard line was huge for us.”
(on how the defense stopped the Saints on the final play) “The goal-line defense, that’s team defense there. I know Clay (Matthews) was probably the first to hit him, but I think our defensive line did an awesome job. You have to move the line of scrimmage and our defensive line pushed them back…(Desmond) Bishop and I were free to go over the top and create piles. That’s what you have to do is create a pile and have guys knocking him back. That’s what happened, and our defensive line did that a bunch tonight.”

(on the game being decided on the final play) “This game was crazy and I’m sure the networks aren’t too upset it came down to that. It was a fun game to be a part of. There were obviously a lot of ups and downs, so I’m just happy for our offense to score all those points for us.”

PACKERS WIDE RECEIVER JORDY NELSON:
(on Randall Cobb) “He’s great to have. We’ve seen it. He got a little banged up in the preseason, so he was on the shelf for a little bit and was our little secret, but he’s out there now. He had a great run (on the return), breaking tackles and making plays offensively and on special teams. It’ll be nice to have him back there.”

(on the offense’s productive start despite a shortened training camp) “We put our work in. A lot of people were worried about the offseason workouts we [didn’t have], but apparently we were all right. We put our time in, and worked hard in training camp. I think a lot of the core coming back after the Super Bowl helps and we came in grinding, and got ready to play this opening week.”

(on Donald Driver tying the Packers’ all-time receiving mark) “We were talking on the sideline. I’m a little disappointed he didn’t get one more to get it here, but obviously he’ll get it done in Carolina. It’s a great honor for him and goes to show the time, the work, the effort, the type of guy, everything. He’s one of the best that’s been here and he’s going to be on top of that list for a while now.”

PACKERS QB AARON RODGERS:
(on his fast start in the first three drives) “It was a good start for us. I’ve just got to ask myself, ‘What would have happened if we had offseason workouts? Could we have started any faster and scored more points tonight?’”

(on Randall Cobb’s debut) “Randall did a great job. It’s exciting watching him with the ball in his hands. The kickoff return was incredible. The catch and run, he actually ran the wrong route but I was able to read him, surprisingly. We didn’t have offseason workouts but surprisingly I was able to read his body language there and he made a nice catch and run for a touchdown.”

(on Donald Driver tying but not breaking the team’s receiving yard record at home) “I was hoping we’d get him another catch. I knew we were close. When I hit him on that pass (when) we were going in I knew that he was in the 30s and we had to get 42 (yards) I think it was to break it. I threw it to him and he looked up at the scoreboard – I think he was seeing how many yards we got – and his expression kind of said that he was a little short. We were trying to get him the ball again, just didn’t have the opportunity.”

(on spreading the ball around) “I think all the guys will be happy. Jermichael (Finley) had a good stretch there where he caught a couple balls down the middle. Jordy’s (Nelson) been so consistent for us the last seven or eight games he’s played for us. (He had a) big catch on the first drive to get things going down the field and he just had another good game for us. And Greg (Jennings) obviously is very consistent for us. It was nice to be able to spread the ball a little bit. Driver had a few catches and we have a lot of weapons.”

PACKERS CORNERBACK CHARLES WOODSON:
(on the defense’s performance) “We made the plays we needed to win. We made a stance late in the game with a chance for them to tie it and getting off the field, but (we gave up) way too many points and way too many missed tackles, and way too many yards. I’m happy with the win, no doubt about it, but that’s not the way we like to perform.”

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON:
(on the loss) “Obviously it was a hard-fought game. I was proud of the way we hung in there and fought back. There will be a lot of things on tape that we’ve got to clean up with this first game. Credit Green Bay. They did a very good job and did all the things they needed to do to win a home game like that.”

(on Green Bay’s offense) “It was a really good offense we played. Aaron (Rodgers) did a really good job. They’re an up-tempo team. Both teams were converting but we were having trouble getting off the field. There will be a handful of things we’ll look at and have to improve on, but part of that is a credit to Green Bay as well.”

(on the fourth-and-one play in the third quarter) “Hindsight, it’s easy to say kick the field goal. But that being said, we felt like we had a play we wanted to run, but it didn’t work. It’s not an easy call, but it’s one that you look back on and I’ll kick myself a little bit.”

(on running back Darren Sproles) “He’s electric. He changed (the game) for us. He gave us some momentum with the punt return and he’s one of those guys that makes great decisions in space.”

(on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers) “It’s a little bit of a cat-and-mouse game. We got to him early, but he’s got a quick release and he’s got a handful of targets, obviously, starting with the tight ends and receivers. He’s probably one of the top quarterbacks in our league under pressure.”

SAINTS QUARTERBACK DREW BREES:
(on the team’s red-zone offense) “I think the biggest stat for us that is disappointing is our red-zone efficiency. We were 1-of-5, scoring touchdowns only one out of five times in the red zone. That’s not going to win you a lot of games, especially on the road in this type of environment against this team.”

(on getting down 14-0 early in the game) “Obviously they jumped out early. We knew we might need to weather the storm and I felt like we did a good job of staying composed and finding a way to scratch and claw our way back, and we did that. We had a chance at the end at least to tie it.”

(on whether or not it was the type of game he envisioned coming in) “Here’s the thing, you’ve got two great offenses and you’ve got two great defenses. It can be a 17-10 game; it can be a 42-34 game. You just don’t know what to expect. You just know you’ve got to take care of your business one play at a time.

SAINTS WIDE RECEIVER DEVERY HENDERSON:
(on his touchdown catch) “It was just an opportunity that I took advantage of and Drew (Brees) did a good job of getting the ball to me.”

(on the game) “They did a good job of moving the ball. They did a good job on offense and they didn’t make any mistakes. Sometimes you need that to win a game. I give them credit; they did a great job. We fought, but we just came up short. It was a great game. I enjoyed playing in it. It is the first game, so we can’t hang our head on this one.”

SAINTS RUNNING BACK MARK INGRAM:
(on playing in his first NFL game) “Of course I was excited. It has always been a dream come true to play in the NFL, but at the end of the day I am more about winning. Today we didn’t come out with the win so we need to work hard and fix things that didn’t work out for us.”

(on the loss) “As a team we did a lot of things well, but I think when we look at the film we are going to kick ourselves in the butt a couple times with the turnovers and not converting on short yardage plays. I think that hurt us.”

(on the last play of the game) “You have to get a yard. It is the goal line to win the game. I have to get a yard.”

SAINTS SAFETY MALCOLM JENKINS:
(on Aaron Rodgers) “We knew coming into it that he would make some plays. A lot of those were just some great throws into tight coverage. We just have to live with that. We tried to adjust to those back shoulder throws, but they earned those plays.”

(on if he thought the game would be such a shootout) “No defense wants to go into a game thinking it will be a shootout, but we knew they would have an explosive offense. We also feel comfortable with Drew that he will always keep us in games even when we aren’t at our best. When you have Drew Brees as your quarterback, you always have a chance.”

    Hmm ..I do not see anything from Woodson about needing to punch the opposing team. What playbook is that in? Between the silly celebratory antics and low blows (literally) Packers fans should be ashamed to see a Championship team behave in such an unsportsmanlike fashion for their first outing. If all of the pomp and circumstance that surrounded this game, could not inspire them to greatness, what will?

    On Woodson: Silence isn’t golden, it’s yellow. I’m glad he stuck up for himself. The NFL isn’t hop scotch or hide -n- seek, it’s a fight. On the other hand, I can’t say the same for the majority of other professional sports. I hope Woodson isn’t punished too much in standing up for himself. He was being physically manhandled before fighting back.

    In response to Brian Sprouse,
    I completely disagree with you about us not being able to be proud of our team for playing an amazing game and coming away with the victory! In response to Woodson, let’s not forget that the other guy was trying to take a cheap shot at him by throwing Woodson into his own team mate after the whistle had been blown…what about that? You left that part out didn’t you?

    there’s no mention of Tramon Williams injury. I was concerned to see him holding his wrist. A wrist injury can take a long time to heal. I hope we hear something soon.

    I knew this was going to be a very tough game but the Pack jumped on them early both offensively and defensively to get that 14 point advantage. Then it turned into an offensive shootout with special teams on both sides hitting pay dirt. Charles knew better. The defense came through when they really needed it. Sports analysts say the A. J. Hawk penalty was correct but I think he made the play and should have ended the game there. Go packers and go Driver!

  17. By Cristie on Sep 9, 2011 | Reply

    I think it was extremely poor judgment to omit recognition of Bret Favre during NBC’s commentary of last night’s opening football game. It really doesn’t matter how many people are angry at him or dislike him for whatever reason(s). The immense contribution to the Packer’s status as champions made by Favre’s ability and prior commitment to the Packers should not be ignored. No one can honestly deny that Favre IS a part of Green Bay Packer’s history and legacy. He IS and will always be one of the best quarterbacks to have ever played in the NFL.

    Just a great game…full of exciting plays, and an exciting conclusion !
    The fourth down stops were game changers.
    The first half offense was awesome ! Aaron Rogers, and the recievers sending the message that the Pack is Back !
    Please put the Press Conference transcripts on the site.

    Tramon’s injury is to his shoulder, not his wrist. When you injure your shoulder, you hold-up your forearm by the wrist to keep your arm from dangling.

    As far as severity, we have to wait for the tests to be run. Could be anything from broken clavicle, dislocated shoulder, torn rotator cuff or deltoid muscle, or broken arm.

    The accidental hit he took from Nick Collins was awkward…TW had is right arm extended and it was exposed to the hit.

    Let’s hope it’s not serious!

    I, too, am missing the Mike McCarthy press conference transcripts. They are always the first thing I read every day he has a presser. You can not hear the questions in the videos and they take too long to watch versus reading the transcripts.
    Please post them as in the past.
    And yes any win is a good win, lots of improvement can be made but we are off to a good start.
    Go Pack Go!

    WHATTA GAME!! I was on the edge of the couch that final drive the Saints made. The defense came through when we needed ‘em most. My biggest gripe about last night, though, was the poor tackling by the Packs D. Too many misses and broken tackles. WRAP THE GUY UP!!! Other than that, I thought it was a GREAT game!!! Games like that is what makes this sport THE best!! To all the regulars, GAME ON!!! GO PACK GO!! GRENN & GOLD BABY!!

    And Cristie, Favre is a Packer legend, no doubt. Whether fans love or hate him, no one can deny the impact he had on this organization. I wish people could look past the incident that happened and remember what he did for the Packers. He helped turn the Packers back into a elite NFL team, when the team was irrelevent for so long, and you REAL Packer fans know I’m right. Rodgers is making his own legacy, which will be a great one, but let’s not just throw #4 under the bus.

    Now, with all that said, I’m gettin’ hungry for some Panther jerky. And MR. Cam Newton, MR. BCS Champ. I can’t wait till you meet the Packs D. Say hello to The Freezer as well as the guy who wears #52!! Good luck, Cami, you’re gonna need it!! GREEN,not GRENN, & GOLD!!!

    To Cristie I see no reason to mention Brett Favre every game anymore. It has been three years since he has played for the Packers. This is the Rodgers Era now and it is his time to shine. Sure, Favre was one of the best quarterbacks of all time but does that really warrant a reason to downplay Rodgers amazing play the last three years? No. Get over it, Favre is gone time to move on. As for Tramon, I think that he may have a broken collarbone. But seeing as how I’m not a doctor/physician my medical opinion is irrelevant. Last nights game was thoroughly excited from beginning to end. Only thing I saw that needs to be practiced a little more is the wrapping up, but I can’t dismiss this quickness and agility of the Saints players. Sproles is and always been a tough guy to tackle so that’s to be expected. Go Pack Go

    Here is a quote from the Green Bay Press Gazette

    Packers coach Mike McCarthy said cornerback Tramon Williams has a shoulder bruise, which he termed a positive medical development.

    Williams injured his shoulder after colliding with teammate Nick Collins during Thursday night’s game against New Orleans.

    McCarthy wouldn’t say for sure, but seemed to indicate that Williams’ injury won’t keep him out for an extended period of time.

    Nicholas, I agree with you. Though I may not like Favre anymore, he did help get the Packers back up to being a contending team. BUT it’s Aaron’s time now, he’s proved himself to be an amazing quarterback and I think the comparisons need to stop. Have to say that my heart stopped a little when Tramon got hurt last night, hope it’s nothing serious. Holy cow, what a game!!! My 2 1/2 year old woke up from nap so he could watch football with mommy. The game came on at 2:30 here in Hawaii, my husband’s not a football fan, but by the end of the game when Donald Driver picked up that onside kick, HE was even cheering for the Pack. Really wish the Packers were coming to Denver this season, since I’m moving to the area in a couple weeks, but there’s always hope for next season. We started strong and just need to keep it up. GO PACK GO!

    Minocquabat…if YOU were a real Packers fan, you would know the Pack was great long before Favre came along. I grew up during the Bart Starr times, he was a great man. I’m not saying Favre isn’t great, he is, but now YOU are downplaying the whole history of the Pack. The thing I like best about Green Bay and the Pack, is that they stick by their team and still show up for games, even in a 30 year dry spell. Once a Packer fan, always a Packer fan, it’s in your blood. True Packer fans were fans LONG before Favre was even in college – we did not just jump on the bandwagon because he came to town and brought the trophy back. Favre didn’t put us on the map. A lot of great men before him did. Get some historical films and watch them.

    Hey Cali and Big Cheese,

    So nice to see your posts my friends….another year is here and I think I’m more excited this season than any time in recent memory. What an exciting game this past week, I have to mirror Woodson’s comments regarding the defenses’ points and yardage allowed; the defense seemed to be hawking for the ball instead of tackling at times, but they did post one awesome goal line stand to win it. Great job to both the offense and defense as the Saints are a very good team. Kudos to the coaching staff too top to bottom for having the team hungry for repeat and acting as hunters…rather than the hunted.
    As for Favre, yes he is and will always be both a Packer and an NFL legend….but his Packer time is done and Mr. Rodgers is king now. Let’s beat the drum for all our current players as they too will be mentioned soon in the same sentences and comparisons as Favre enjoys.
    Minocqoubat…I usually refrain from addressing mental minnows (pun intended) but you are an idiot. Politics and football don’t mix here in Packerville. If you are a Packer fan… great as we truly are a rare breed in the NFL kingdom. This site is for the faithful Pack maniacs to meet, discuss our team, and form friendships. Demeaning Cali’s state has nothing to do with football. I submit based on your infantile comments that you are just another team’s plant bent on distracting the fan base here. There have been others before you Minnow, and more will come to be sure but you cannot shake the will and resolve of Packer fans. Long after you quit our blog, the green and gold will still be bleeding those colors and sharing the glories stored in our memories.

    Roll on Green Roll on

    luvsprings and montana (welcome back montana), very well put, both of you. And right on about the defense coming up big when it really mattered. This team is full of talent, this year will be another exciting one.

    As for microbrain, just a pure idiot. He does NOT by any means understand the Packer tradition, ethics, and integrity. And by no means does he represent a true member of Packer Nation. Get lost bucko, you’re a lonely insane jerk off who still lives at home with mom and has an older sister who keeps tabs on you to make sure your taking your medication and attending your sheltered workshop. Besides, you’re a Lions fan remember?

    Pay attention Minocquabat, I didn’t take away anything from ALL the Greats who played a part in making the Packers’ who and what they are, including the fans. What I meant to say was, when NBC was mentioning the great players of the Green Bay Packers, Favre’s name was an OBVIOUS OMISSION. Shame on NBC, and I said as much TO NBC. It was my understanding (or misunderstanding) that what is reported about any football team (the Packers in this instance) must be approved by the Team’s Head Honchos. Well in that case, if the ommission wasn’t sanctioned by the Team. then there was no foul committed … so get you bruised feelings in check.

    To Nicholas, I did not downplay Rodgers … as a matter of fact, I thought he was really good. I hope his whole season goes as good or better than it did Thurs eve. As I said to Minocquabat, my statement was in reference to the NBC commentators AND I did address the issue on the NBC website. They, the NBC commentators DID mention Bart Starr and other previous Packer players, but not Favre. I just thought it was not a good thing to do.

    I am glad that Tramon is going to be ok, and should be right back in the game, from the comments posted above, about it being a bruise.

    Yes, being 52, I remember the old days that initially put us on the map but unfortunately the game has changed and will NEVER come back. I’m so happy to see that some of the marquee players around the league decided to trim their hair like a man, I thought Clayboy was supposed to do the same???

    GO PAK GO!! WE WILL WIN AGAIN!!!!!!!!!

    BTW FRESH, SQUEAKY CURDS ARE THE BEST!!!!
