Head Coach Brian Daboll

(On what went wrong today for his team)

"Collectively, just not good enough. Pretty much take any area, (it) just wasn't good enough. Give them (the Saints) credit. They did well. (They) were efficient in the pass game. We weren't really efficient in the pass game. The run, the quarterback zone reads where really all of that was going...I think was 9 for 14, or somewhere around there. We couldn't get the run game going, had a number of sacks (allowed). They were pretty efficient, 6 of 12 on third down and 2 of 2 in the red zone. So, collectively, it just wasn't good enough."

(On the play of the coverage team not being as good today)

"Nothing was where it needed to be today."

(On if the Saints did anything differently to defend Tommy DeVito)

"They played well. They stopped the run. (They) were effective in the pass coverages. We had a couple of drops out there early that, I thought, could've helped us. Overall, (it was) not good enough."

(On why the stunts from the Saints gave the Giants trouble)

"They did a good job running them, and we didn't do a good enough job blocking them."

(On the momentum swings in the game in the first half)

"Yeah, it was 7-6. Jamie (Gillan) hit that field goal. Again, they did a better job than we did all of the way around."

(On Tommy DeVito not being able to escape pressure like in the last game)

"I think that it's different. There's different rushes (each game). Every game is a little bit different. Like I said, not good enough
all of the way around."

(On not being able to generate much pressure today)

"They did a good job blocking us. They stayed on schedule. When you stay on schedule, there are better chances offensively. They were. I thought that (Derek) Carr did a great job. (He was) 23 of 28 or something like that. (He) was very efficient (and) effective. He got the ball out of his hands. (They) hit a couple of big ones. They did a good job. Give them credit."

(On if the message to the team is that there is still a chance for them to make the playoffs)

"Yeah, we are all pros. You get ready to play. You get ready to play the next week. That is our job. We will look forward to the opportunity to play next week."

(On how long Randy Bullock may be out)

"No, I don't know."

(On what the team would have done had Jamie Gillan had to exit the game then)

"We talked about it at halftime. It almost got to that point, but Jamie toughed it out."

(On if he thought that Gillan could kick)

"Yes, he did it in the preseason last year. You don't anticipate two guys possibly going down. So, give him credit, He fought threw it. He kicked off. We will see where we are at."

(On when Bullock injured himself)

"I don't know exactly when it was. He kicked the fifty something (56) yarder, and then they told me it was his hamstring."
“Just not good enough”

But why? Is it scheme, effort or lack of execution? We all know it wasn’t good enough.

I know these press conferences mean nothing, but those answers are just not good enough.

So you want him to call specific players and coaches out during a press conference?

Are you knew to professional sports?
I wonder if the head coach realizes

His job is in peril if he doesn’t make significant changes to his pathetic offensive line. If he doesn’t get a minimum of two brand new, high performing lineman, and if he doesn’t get rid of Johnson, then he’s out as head coach after 3 seasons.
