Saints aren't winning games but they're getting better

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New Orleans Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer said in an interview that the Saints have gotten better since Weeks 1 and 2. How close does he think the team is to winning their first game of the season?

The New Orleans Saints may be winless but they are getting better. That's what interim head coach Aaron Kromer told Deke Bellavia and Bobby Hebert in an interview on WWL in New Orleans.

Kromer believes that the Saints have improved quite a bit since the first two weeks of the season:

"We're so much better now than we were Week 1 and 2. We're not the same team, and we're getting to that point, we're ready to bust out at any time now, and that's exactly what I told the guys. If they can't sense it, then they're blind

A few other topics that were discussed in the interview were the Saints lack of a pass rush, poor balance offensively and the team's turnover ratio. The Saints rushed only 19 times in last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers and Kromer believes that the problems lie in the execution of the plays:

We can count numbers and how many reps we have running and how many we don't have, but the fact is when we dial up a run play, we have it designed in practice, they show us the look, they do the things that we planned on doing. We have to execute it better, and we didn't do that.

The Saints host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday Night Football in Week 5. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on NBC.
