Saints players' postgame quotes after Week 2.

Check out photos of the Saints and Patriots in Week 2 action at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

#51 LB Manti T'eo

On if their offensive mix confused the defense
"It is not necessarily the mix. You have to try to understand what they're going to do. They have a certain flavor. I'm sure that we all saw that. They have certain plays they like to go to. They try to dress it up to keep us on our toes. It all goes back to executing. We just have to execute. We got outexecuted today. We're going to watch the film and come back. That's the thing about the NFL. We are 0-2 right now, but we have 14 more. We are going to learn from this and get ready for Carolina."

On if it was the defense's fault or Tom Brady's execution
"I do not blame anybody. As a total unit we can be better As a whole team, we can do better As far Tom Brady, We all know (what) he can do. We understood that coming into this game that they're a well-oiled machine. As far as us, we need to execute. We have to win our one on one match-ups. We didn't do that today. That's football. You live or learn and move on."

#94 DE Cameron Jordan

On the 0-2 start
"We knew that we couldn't let Tom (Brady) get hot and that's exactly what he did. There were times that we hit him and he still made some plays and still got the ball off. It's on us. It's not on him. He did a great job of stepping up in the pocket and releasing the ball quickly. They go hand and hand. We didn't get there fast enough. We have to turn on the film and see how we can get to the quarterback faster. It's not like we didn't hit him. We did pressure him. At the end of the day, he made more big plays then we did."

On the defense in the second half
"We were looking for a rally. We were looking to bounce back. Some things got away from us in the first half. That's something that we have to look at."

16 WR Brandon Coleman **

On the 0-2 start
"It's frustrating, but it's a new season. I am not going to compare it to last year. Even though it might seem that way. I'm encouraged. It's still early in the season. I'm being optimistic about it."

On the touchdown reception
"It was a play that we repped in practice. I'm just excited that we had a chance to execute it"

#41 RB Alvin Kamara

On the offense
"We are getting better. There are things that are in our control. We just have to control the things that we have control over."

On the go route
"We've had it in the game plan. Drew (Brees) and I talk about it a lot. It was something that we are confident in. We just have to learn from it."

On the running back situation
"I don't have a problem with it. It's the situation. Whatever situation calls for whatever back, then that's what we are going to roll with. We are pretty comfortable with it."

#53 LB A.J. Klein

On bouncing back from an 0-2 start
"I think we can. Once we get back tomorrow and dive back into this tape, we will hold everyone accountable, including myself. From a defensive aspect, we have a lot to improve on. I have been a part of teams that started 1-4. We came back from it by winning 10 games and making the playoffs. It's a process and a very long season. We'd have like to have gotten the win today, but sometimes the chips do not fall your way. We have to get back to work tomorrow. This week will be very important to us."

On their offense
"I think you have to give credit where credit is due. We made mistakes. We need to make those adjustments. It's a 60-minute game and we need to play it that way. They were just the better team today."
