NEW ORLEANS, LA. – The Saints have lost for the fourth time in the last five home games. It’s apparent that quarterback Trevor Siemian is not producing the numbers that head coach Sean Payton expects him to. New Orleans had 64 yards of offense at halftime and just 190 the entire game.

“I didn’t play very well. We’re just not getting anything going early in games and today we kind of allowed it to snowball. We put our defense in a bad situation, so, we have to get (the offense) right,” said Siemian.

“He struggled. We struggled blocking him. We struggled running. I think it’s going to be difficult to do a lot of anything if you can’t block him and you can’t have some balance,” said head coach Sean Payton.

“We are a team. Our offense is dinged up, that is no excuse. It is (a) next man up mentality. Our defense is relatively healthy in terms of our linebacker corps and our secondary. So, we (the defense) have to be the strength. We (the defense) have to be more than we are in this game, more than we were in this game. we have to put it on our defense right now. We knew we had to come in and take the load, and we’ve got to be who we think we are,” said defensive end Cam Jordan.

The question many are wondering is what’s wrong with having Taysom Hill under center? Payton said Hill was limited at the QB position due to a foot injury. As for who will start next week against the Cowboys, that is TBD.
