Saints players talk following game against Patriots

Marques Colston and others met with the media Sunday

Marques Colston, wide receiver, on what the Patriots did to take him and Jimmy Graham out of the game:
"They had a pretty good game plan for us.  We were able to find more rhythm in the second half and get back into the game.  Anytime you are playing a team this good on the road you have to make plays for 60 minutes and we didn't do that today."

On the loss:
"That's the ebb and flow of this game.  We just didn't make enough plays."

Jahri Evans, guard, on Bryce Harris:
"He did pretty good; he did good last week when he stepped in to play."

On the loss:
"We'll be better because of it; we'll digest it just like we would a win. We'll get healthier over this next week and come back and get a win."

Jabari Greer, cornerback on the loss/last play:
"We fought everything to be in a position to win, and to have one play change everything, that's tough, especially being the person. It was very humbling. You never want to hurt your team, but also I know that I made that play a lot of times in my career. It lets a lot out of you knowing that we played a very prepared and resilient team. Congratulations to them, we got a lot of work to do. I just have to be accountable to make that play and not let them score."

On adjusting in the second half:
"The coaching staff did a good job of adjusting. We just made sure we kept things inside and putting some pressure on."

[internal-link-placeholder-0]Cameron Jordan, defensive end, on his injury:
"I'm all right; I got about a week to heal up so I should be fine."

On the loss:
"We just want to get to see the films, break it down and get better. We did some positive things. "

On the second half:
"They gave us their best punch in the first half. We came around and got a little more pressure on them in the second half, and was able to fine tune the game to our liking. It ended up getting away from us in the end. "

Kenny Vaccaro, safety, on the game-winning touchdown:
"We stopped them a couple of times, we just have to finish. That was a tough play, Jabari (Greer) makes that play all the time. We'll rally back."

On what they did in the second half to get an edge on the Patriots:
"We just stuck to our plan. Going into the game, the plan was to get pressure and sometimes you have to back away from it in certain situations. We saw that it was working so we just kept going with it."

On the loss:
"That undefeated monkey is off our back so we can just go out and play ball."
