Our video gumbo for today will start with a heaping helping of Will Smith, who showed up in the nick of time Sunday to help the New Orleans Saints out of a tight spot.
Defensive end Will Smith had to step up to the plate for us in the absence of team defensive captain Johnathon Vilma, and if the final score is any measure of his success, he did a fine job.
In this video put together by Nola.com, Kevin Spain and James Varney Will talks a bit about the game, coming back to work, and working with the newer players.
The image above will be your link to Will Smith, New Orleans Saints OL Brian de la Puente on backup issues and looking ahead, New Orleans Saints defensive back Leigh Torrence as he talks to Times-Picayune’s James Varney about the playing in the secondary, and being a leader for the team, and New Orleans Saints veteran lineman Jermon Bushrod on turnovers at the tackle spot for the Saints.
For the second course of the buffet New Orleans Saints guard Carl Nicks praises guys who filled in on Sunday, and New Orleans Saints guard Jahri Evans’ take on the line shuffling Sunday, and New Orleans Saints beat writers James Varney and Mike Triplett discuss the defense’s performance after the Saints’ 40-33 win over the Houston Texans, and then James and Mike fill out the report card for the Saints offense.
If you’re not too stuffed for dessert, New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham talks about learning from the master Drew Brees in post-game press conference following the win against the Houston Texans. Graham had 4 catches for 100 yards and a touchdown in the game. Then Cameron Jordan talks about the talent on the New Orleans Saints, and Will Smith gets his second wind and talks about being rusty in his return, and last but not least New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton talks about beating the Houston Texans.
We’ll have more news and Video Gumbo for you after the Saints next game with the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field.
