The New Orleans Saints got their butts whooped in Seattle. Then they had a short week to prepare for another game against the red-hot Carolina Panthers. TO make matters worse, the Saints got stuck in Seattle and were forced to spend Monday night in Seattle.
Still, head coach Sean Payton doesn’t feel unprepared.
“Everything is on the iPads now. Anytime you play a Monday night game, you don’t have the time to go back through and necessarily cover that opponent, the game you just played like you normally would because you are on a short week,” Payton said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. ”We got in around 3, 3:30, came over to the offices and started our work. But the iPads had all the games of Carolina, cut-ups, everything that you necessarily needed. I don’t think there is a big adjustment or a big deal about getting back in the next day as opposed to 6 a.m.”
Payton’s opponent feels pretty confident as well.
“I learned that they’re beatable,” he said Wednesday at his news conference. “I thought Seattle played a very good game and I thought some things were off for New Orleans. But it was good to see, give you a little bit of a jump, a little bit of a head start on our next opponent.”
