Hollis Thomas was a guest on NFL Sirius radio and shared his thoughts on last weekend's win over the Eagles that earned New Orleans a ticket to the NFC Championship against the Chicago Bears.
Thomas talked about the great effort by Brian Westbrook and what went through his mind after the Philadelphia running back ripped off a 62-yard run early in the second half.
"I told everybody all week, in the playoffs you've got to have a short, short memory because you've got to play every play like it's your last one," he said. "You can't dwell on what happened in the past."
Thomas shared what the defense's strategy was heading into the game and also took a look at the Saints' dominance at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.
This week, the Saints are a step away from their first Super Bowl appearance, but they have to go through Chicago before they can start to pack their bags for Miami. Thomas discussed what kind of game he expect it to be and also had a few things to say about Bears quarterback Rex Grossman.
"We've got to come out prepared to rattle him," he said.
Learn more about Thomas' perspectives on the Eagles and the Bears in this 9-minute interview, compliments of Sirius NFL Radio.
