Sharper: Saints aren't dirty, just a little grimy

By JEFF DICKERSON

MIAMI -- Wednesday's quote of the day was provided by Saints safety Darren Sharper, who was asked if New Orleans' defense deserves the reputation of being dirty.

“We don’t know if we want to call ourselves dirty, but I think I said this before -- it is like taking a shower when you get up in the morning and are going to cut your grass," Sharper said. "You are nice and fresh when you cut the grass, but at the end you have a little griminess to you. We want to call ourselves a little grimy; not dirty all the way, but just maybe a little grimy. That is how we like to play.”
