Saints fans were expecting the defense to eat Titans rookie QB Jake Locker alive when he had to come in for an injured Matt Hasselbeck.
Instead, Locker looked like Peyton Manning and even rushed for a touchdown. He also nearly led a comeback victory until he was sacked as time expired.
The Saints secondary gave up three huge passing plays during the game, one which was a touchdown and another that almost resulted in a touchdown that would have sealed the game for the Titans.
Cornerback Tracy Porter redeemed his group a bit by sacking Locker on a play and batting down a sure touchdown pass in the endzone.
Even still, Williams stated that pass defense was a point of emphasis this week and that several of the big plays during the game resulted in coverage’s that were blown, leaving receiver’s wide open.
He also left very little room for excuses or for being a “repeat mistake offender” when he spoke with the media.
"And we tease them all the time that they need to eliminate from their vocabulary: I Did Not Hear, I Did Not Know, I Do Not Understand. And if they ever use that around me then they’re competing for jobs with you guys."
