HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON (general comments) New OrleansSaints vs. IndianapolisColts 9/6/07

"It was a game at halftime where I thought we did a number of things right defensively.  We struggled to generate the points in the offense we wanted early in this game, and then it carried over into the second half.  But I thought the type of game played in the first half was conducive to us being successful.  We made some plays in the kicking game, and then it got away from us in the second half.  (The Colts) did a good job; they had some big plays, obviously, in the passing game, and it got away from us.  It's a tough loss.  That's disappointing, and it's disappointing in the way it finished."

"Obviously you want to score points.  We had a big play early by the defense that gave us a touchdown, so disappointed is more the word.  We've got to ready for next week and put
