I'm David Blake. Our Tommy Tucker WW LA on my famine dot com. In some text here from people saying I sound a little off too day. And MIT because Tucker's got him a date this weekend David Howell ga and you're a seat on a C Sully. I'll carry the movie based on Sully Sullenberger and it miracle on the Hudson landing zone. More interested in the Dayton and I am they yeah movie. That you're taking some regretting. But I am. Getting a date is a sure yeah Lebow an immunity you wanna share of low side. You're a young regulated by attenuation of the main okay blond hair pretty it's now is it OK that sounds good and some mystery. I'm a little nervous you know California is you've been out of the loop here buzz saints get a shot the world you know it's modern and often are now and it shocked may have you seen in one out of nowhere it's building like wildfire. Techs are coming in hash tag shock the world DA WOR LD. Mike to tell you joins us right now talk about the game the saints are favored by one I believe his latest line I confined to morning nine. Wanna come out we'll undertake under on that 151. While they announced it is betting pick up. And announced it is a prediction note I don't opt out on that prediction I don't think we won so lead the divine inspiration. Was betting do. Well yet. Yeah economy always a little bit you know angle. That's when they learned in like in life might there result always had an evening and we tell me seriously about the saints and play in Oakland. And this season in the starting. The players who would seek out there it is that maybe might be different from last year from whom we can expect a lot. Well I think that. Really to be honest with you I think that twelfth man it's simply a big difference in this game. Are you played a really talented young football team that has doubled walked down this football I'll look for in this stadium. And this Wednesday wants very feared placed the play it hasn't quite been that way other than it would Atlantic comes like. I don't believe. Early for the saints to get on top but now and they get a crowd involved you've got to do insult in being early in the game. The people she got sucked in to get excited for you got to really talented young quarterback with the raiders. But again you've never played in this type in arm. Rattle him early so you gotta be loud and proud Sunday. This is a really good team and probably a week one did we gay. I think they're going to be in. For a playoff spot the Arctic offensively Michael Thomas a guy that comes and I've never heard from Reese talked about a rookie of principally elect he has about Michael Thomas. Reggie Bush Jimmy Graham more game room coaxed the never in the same hole as he's talked about Michael Thomas. The big thing upfront. Candy thanks give them protection I don't think this thing to do and how much of a running game against the raiders but can they protect from Brees. Because that's going to be key on defense. A lot of new faces pop group a company and I think he's gonna start opposite camp Jordan. As defensive and pilot David in the second year defensive tackle nick fairly James Laurinaitis I think that's where you made the most improvement. Or right up the middle all on the defensive side of the football. In it you kick the eleventh one. Initial Olympic narrower width will let's covenant. From the yellow Baltimore Ravens so. It'll be interesting football game against the team that. Most people including myself. Believable. Be a major major contender in the AFC this year. And attacks earlier and somebody saying waiting and figures saint zero and three after watching me Carolina. Denver game Lance and I am sure you saw some of the saints play Carolina twice Denver once. Come see your perception about those teams and how the saints would match up against them. Think of what was matched up well against the pants as they have beaten them. A lot but they've matched up well against of just remember last year without Drew Brees. My count threw the ball in the and so. That little of the total but Josh Normandy to unbelievable plea for an interception that going to be on the road. I still believe apple. And markets in other bills that football touched the ball the ground and they cult did catch with Greg Olsen all the sites in depth. Giving the answers the first loss of the same last year they have always matched up well against Carolina. They just haven't come out. Of the inside of it as many as you'd like. No question about it that blows East London not came last night to really good defensive teams. Goal off of one another the Panthers front seven is as good as you won in the NFL. Offensively. He you know still. Little bit of work in progress but they got Kelvin Benjamin. They're the clear cut favorites and in the NFC south title think there's any question I think Atlanta recently to your wallet. They can score how well they can play defense is in question. Every team is ample. Because they get a gunslinger quarterback to make six foot five receiver the six foot six tight end. Improvement along the offensive line how much better quality going to be on defense I think you're way. From causing people a lot of trouble so I think you got one favorite in three teams all jammed together from a six into an eight sites football thing. I heard you might ma'am tell you I think is said to be. Four years ago and remember exactly where it was a and that's when I heard it but you said that there inevitably in the NFL. Our teams that are supposed to be world beaters and they're not and they fall back in their teams that come that are supposed to be mediocre. And all of a sudden they come out of nowhere d.s got a couple of names for me on either side of that equation. Epic in the tendency Tampa Bay. I think there are seen late in the year that could be a lot of trouble. Just because that make up of that football team I think they got shot. The cause a lot of a lot of issues I'd look to see the saints be playing in the NFC east this year. Because I don't think any Eagles team you know they pretty much the role in the 100 mutual's across the board I think Green Bay Arizona. Seattle. Carolina still the best scenes there in the AFC certainly the raiders the team to watch. Because I do believe that. Andy got so most of they'd be pretty good and jets who world really good team last year who lost late. And they've been playoff bound possibly ended up beating normally so but most of it seems to Connell watch maybe that. All looked at maybe yes contenders. How well the patriots will play the first four games without Tom Brady. It will be interesting start of the season and what a way to crack it off last night where you know last year four different times. The Panthers won gains with a dual goal in the final play our second the last play of the game last night had a shot to win it. Any check to kick. That's main thing is me thing again. Unlike last year maybe not this year but that's just. Well most of fifteen an election year. They are going to be fifteen it was being this year obviously ignorant people. Not gonna run the table. I think in wins immunity I'll give you the type. Well I think it will be I think the saints get to ten no I don't think he'd get to him. I think it's a tougher schedule than a year ago holes along the offensive line battle are troubling to me and again. One of the things are and so on pre season that I saw election it was their inability to cover backs and tight ends. On third and 53 in New York. Third and seven at 930. And forty odd. They had difficulty matching up in that area and certainly a lot of that comes in play with the lack of a consistent pass rush. But game. You've seen game warning games six and that's why I would much rather catch the raiders in the opening game in that deal. They've played in games six though. Mike the shocked the world train is leaving the station you can get on it while you can say off of it it is your choice. Well. He. Allegheny Indian on in the first collegiate yeah. Ninety lead in a coffee shop isn't on the coffee job lodges like anywhere. I get the engines started on it shocked the world express and then on you know on it but until now Tuesday entries off well a lot to. Quite some time or and it still and a belated happy Ebert and yes in my thank you opportunity that we mentioned it to me I'm my friend thank you have a good weekend Mottaki Monday morning thank you.
