Wounded Tampa Bay will be ready for Brees, Payton-led New Orleans Saints
Written by 

payton2blueThe New Orleans Saints are now 1-0, Sean Payton is in the saddle as head coach, Drew Brees shows once again he is superstar quality and the team is ready to take on the hungry Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in Tampa Bay.

 The Bucs lost its first game of the season but according to Jim W. Miller, former Exec. Vice President of the New Orleans Saints, the black and gold will be ready to go, but so are the Bucs.

Dan Bruett interviewed Miller days after the Saints beat the archrival Atlanta Falcon in the Superdome.

Miller, who also held the position of Executive VP for the New Orleans Saints and similar high positions for both the Chicago Bears and the Buffalo Bills said he feels better about the Saints than he did, the big question he had before the first game was how would the defense adopt to defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

In the six minute interview, Miller discussed Ryan versus Spagnola’s style of defense, the readiness of Drew Brees, the comparisons of Brees under Payton and Brees without his head coach.

Miller also discussed the impact of Marques Colston upon the Saints and the type of player and person, he receiver has been.  Last week, against the Falcons, Colston broke the Saints’ record for most receptions previously held by Eric Martin, who played under Miller.

According to Miller, Colston is a possession-type player with deceptive speed, a big target, a great pro and person with character.

“Tampa is a wounded animal “after dropping to the New York Jets 18-17 in its season opener. Miller feels the game is sort of a family feud, both teams know one another and that after the one-point loss to the Jets, the Bucs have something to prove.

“It’s not who you play, it’s when you play them” Miller told Bruett.
