METAIRIE, La. – Carl Nicks stood in front of the media horde Wednesday, relaxed and ready to look ahead to the Saints’ game on Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Only, three days removed from New Orleans’ 31-21 loss to St. Louis, there were still questions about that debacle.
When asked if he was still upset over the loss he said no.
“I got a couple of days to really marinate and think about what happened and why it happened and I’m fine,” Nicks said. “You’ve got to move on.”
Wait, did he say marinate?
What does that mean coming from a man who measures 6-foot-5 and tips the scales at about 343 pounds?
“You realize the mistakes you made,” Nicks said, laughing when the word was repeated his way, “just like when you watch film. Everybody makes mistakes. (You) figure out why you did it and figure out why you should never do it again. That’s what I did.”
Much of the chatter in the city is about the loss to St. Louis.
Nicks isn’t aware, though.
“I’ve been trying to avoid seeing people so I’ve just been in the house,” Nicks said. “As the game week gets closer and closer to Sunday, I think people are starting to forget about it and starting to worry about Tampa Bay.”
