Deke - Payton's top priority: Play better defense
Saints Coach Sean Payton joined Bobby and me for SportsTalk on Tuesday. Coach talked with us about a variety of things, but when we asked what was the Saints' top priority, coach Payton quickly pointed to the defense.
"We need to play better defense and we have to run the ball better. I think those things go hand in hand," said Payton.
Coach Payton also talked about the hiring of new Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan.
“Rob’s a guy that’s got a great pedigree. He’s a guy that’s confident, he’s a guy that brings a certain amount of enthusiasm to his units. He’s a guy we’ve faced and I’ve known a long time. “
Payton also said the players will hit the weight room in mid-April and will be looking forward, not back.
"Last season was disappointing and we don't make any excuses. We have a lot of improving to do,” Payton said.
