Yes indeed simplified good morning welcome into first take here on W to go live from may innings allowed hang out three and find this key to pregame on here Edmonton great. Plush environment here. Several mile. I can't count coming TV's gotten it please it's wall to wall more than you can watch yet they don't come watch their early gains of 325 to golf between the Saints and Buccaneers. Forcing itself as a lineman Steve court. Go home to the Christmas things pretty that we can way to. Not bad not bad at all. Yeah their Christmas everybody out there and and it's it's fun time of the years. Satan books just two weeks ago actually thirteen days ago it seems like a month since they last played but sixteen to eleven they fell on the black and gold to Tampa. In in Tampa Bay two weeks ago thirteen days ago and eve of their games three innocent from Drew Brees eleven our thirteenth he thirteen penalties. Except that in that ballgame. The only lost by five points and M on a look at this glass half half full time deal right. Even let five point typically we turned ball over three times to lose but when. Five points. Oh look there's no question I mean we that was a that's a classic game room where he could watch that over again and I'm sure they did to remind. The players at this point it looked. This is how bad we messed this up. We shot ourselves in the foot in this game and that's exactly what they did that game there's no there's no way in the world that you won that game. Editor at every chance to do it but you through your three picks. The matter of fact that it was only five point difference that that that's that in itself shows you that. To keep that to take aways or keep it not only that but look we we could've won that game if we were maybe just don't want it. With him less penalties tickets to see it three of the had half the penalties. Thirteen penalties over a hundred yards that's at that that's almost touchdown that's it went six pleasure to drive there's no question so yeah that's that's tough. The Saints to get on the Buccaneers at 325 kick off the Mercedes-Benz superdome Jim Anderson just counsel at the call we want him to ease off lucky cannon Bobby ware beat chief Deke Bellavia 130 for the countdown to call but. And the timing Alice five before 260187. Tech's 87870. The look at the Buccaneers community six an opportunity haven't had a winning month of December since 2005 they haven't had a winning record this league season. Since 2005. Sleep thinking about are these point anyway tendencies aside from aside pointed. You think about the pressure that a young Buccaneers team is facing them on the road. Have an opportunity to still play for a division title and it and in a playoff spot. You wonder how a young team can man. This you know why normally I would say it would be. It would be more overreach yeah but I think you watch James Winston and what he how he's progressed. He's not he's not the young buck anymore he's he's. Pretty much a season guy that he really is and the fact that the running game is is really sort of bolster from the standpoint and of course they've got. Mike Evans who's you know there. Probably one or two your best receivers in the league and arguably partly. Within their defense in which a defense has done. You know talk about opportunistic these guys they're ball Hawks go after the try to get it to try to get. They love the turnover issues they're trying to force that all the time no matter what it is whatever down and distance are trying to get the ball out. Since we since week eight lead to. Go. And so case in point that's why he ours and ours because of that reaction is no question and the fact. Winston does. Really good things with football for the most ways toward mr. over you know this but he's gamblers that they would try to make big plays in a tendency to. Pull. Olson notes for the Saints note Drew Brees no cam Jordan both of those guys the observers in particular for for drew honorees and I know that you can shrug Mitchell was the pro bowls not what it used to be I get that but. You look at the numbers Drew Brees lead the league in passing yards understand that right in the very you know are serving there rod etc. Of the stories do with that front gotten Dallas smuggled the total bull but. Guys feel like clean that it's it shows you that apple Apple's so watered down a lot of weight is. Phoenix to a there clicking clicking clicking clicking though I'm limited. So it's really a popularity contests but it is about winning to. It is and again it's. You know it seems like the guys that. A lot of times getting if it's close are the ones that when the approval voting opens up this and it's those few weeks there at that that you have some guys that play. And then you look at their records that you sale you know that this guy really stepped it up this year and he really deserves that but. And I guess some clips about that personally but but it was it I actually that was different. A different game back in the and then the pro bowls at different scenario back at these fans have nothing to do it back you know it was all personality and you of the of the opposing teams personnel was worth as well as a manager Scioscia stiffer. It slows you ultimately I'm sure. Drew Brees all I'm sure that I'm sure that not getting the Coble is not the bigger issue he wants to win he said it as much this week at this point in his career he's trying to win games I. Would be surprised yeah. He probably shut your shoulders well right just one more thing to motivate me in that. It's something on the where I've been there before and you know he's probably think in the news this is not that they can reveal what we got years in we play Tampa this week and that's the big deal. So they can win out in the a lot of things of that you know that to happen for us sort of in the playoffs. And a lot of those things strange enough that happened so. If it's it's it's yeah it's not Todd could have a Christmas miracle yet you good. Pacifica. But at the Larry on a cell phone you're on W you'll think triple. Pretty young but I. So dispute go over Chris Noble thing hurston a blog do what you Mario. Up from the field to listen man you know you know looking good. Do what to marry Christmas and oh we operate close second would you know. When a dollar game today again. Nadal Murray and a B Ian Berger Christmas. And a joke though and Obama becomes the speed on May now be monitored. All right I say it. Defensively. You we have to limit the big play and again they're going to be going to Evans that's the guy that. So we have to limit that we've got to get pressure on Wednesday he's. Yeah he's a mobile guy you can extend plays his like doesn't like to. But nevertheless it's just enough he can do just enough to get away from here and then and make the big throw. Again. With that. Little muscle hamster bit him in the running back that they got. We got a stop him and at least in the bottle him up a little bit and not in sort of get off the field. On third down to me that's that's the issue was tampered we get off the field off the field on third down. Defensively I think that we we should you win this game. They've been really good it's not about the Saints defense down I know it to step back last week you bloody glove at one point bloody arts as a relief Cardinals office there. But look for me it's it's of the we talked about early Larry we opened the show. And asked do you like when you with the Bucs can count on three turnovers again now for the Saints off it in thirteen and no. So now with a five point difference and just think it's gonna be cliche but. The players say it and it tentative. Yeah ice technically is over when you hear this but it is about internal football overprotective football and a game like well do it and it's a Bucs are so adept at taking yet. And that of the that you realize is the fact. Brees is not to make the same mistakes you made he's just not that some of the stuff is. He can't help but and he sort of receiver and a bounce off his hands and you know and get it to look like a volleyball so much that well. In this league yet it's it's going to be picked off but so that's really not his fault he goes against him which there. I mean I understand that it's sort of just missed just the way it is it but nevertheless I I don't see that happen but you just keep the ball off the ground offensively again. If we can establish a running game we are so good when we run the football you know because. Predominant we know that we have to pass and and that's what we do it's a vertical game for us and that's how we're built. But nevertheless. If we run the football like we have been you know at least we've seen you obviously visions of a there's no reason the rule body can't extend plays and extending drives so. To me I think if you in the same situation and you hear it all the time it's it's what we got to run the football and and the fact that we can do that. The play action to skulls and hands and I think that once you do that I think Drew Brees and just kind of a pieces. Kendrick all day you don't start early in the morning or by your man every game on first eight. Eat drink in the Mary right here at meaning its first take Louis the traits next to your ability to do well enough out. Are welcome back first take full want to open at 5042601870687870. In the tricks with former State's office of lines deep work. Steve what it is going to be without their two starting left and right tackles and didn't belong you know to be infancy they were able to get pressure on with that week fourteen with two sacks when he escaped a few as well it's through management the stack up this. Bucs aligning it sings the line. Yet Donovan Smithson and and Jerrells are the guys that are and looked that's. That's good for us the two tackles on everything especially for outside guys. Cam Jordan got everything can be you know so. Look at whoever's gonna give us I would have to over the year whoever they put over on the other side over there to rush a passer that's that's going to be good for us. To me I think this offensive line is and it is another one that is sort of if they got better as the seasons gone wrong. And you watch them because I think they're they're rushing production has gone on but it also has to do with the running backs you know those guys that they complain that got about. You know they got about three or four guys give you the can sort of get it going wrong but. It'll be interesting. To see how that how that breaks down Doug Martin is as good as they come and in that Charles stimson and I know rip Rodgers has been out but. I think you probably comes back into the full time so. It's going to be to see how they do that. Look at the Saints offensive line they were without Max Unger that we fourteen match up and I heard Mike NCA rattle office that going in that ballgame basically that. If you without your sinner and you appreciate this you if you without your starting center used like 83% of the time. You know it's interesting week and then as the first time I really begin to realize the importance of that was. If you look at Las Vegas and what they feel about yet you. Las Vegas. Las Vegas it tells you that you if you lose your starting center. That really really takes a lot of points of that team that day they did that flips it in. Look he's a good player and he's got to be I think you know between him and right tackle streets those guys are obviously the anchor of the line and the vets who has been there long enough. To sort of pull that thing together and I think it's helped a lot of the younger guys come in and play at a higher level. You know I hate the fact that the two runs not going to be there. He truly is when he's healthy really one of the better left attack recently he's he's he's he's good at that point where he's really yeah. He's a game changer that one you know that that level so. Fact he's out you know look Pete has done a remarkable job. All the credit to him because I've been banging on him early part of your pretty hard. Look at him and release you know make it suspect things that I did you know sometimes it was time to belong in the league. You know in the fact that now he's doing what he does he feels comfortable over there you know so that's that's a good part about it. If you gonna lose somebody like arms to at least know the guy coming in with their first round draft which is comfortable over there and that's a ghost horse. Stephon if he what do you make him. He he's been put on injured reserve. After playing once now 11 deal I think it was against the yeah it was against the bucks. We crew Robertson was out and is Sean Peyton keep come out came out after that gave him was asked about stuff on Anthony. And you know it's a pretty I think he killed. Information and about as candidly as you know here's Sean being talked about a player when he said his reads are ball. And he's he thinks run it pass he thinks pacers' Ron are you read money when it's pats and vice Versa. Work for him to say that what does that tell you about. Where they think it's going which defines it. This heavily at the equipment EC Oakland right on it it it is watched that it certainly is something that you can be concerned about it counts of number one draft choice. That's that's concerning. The fact that. He played pretty good we use here early on. I mean one sort of wonder who was that just lock he'll do what he's a run into those schemes and things working out because he was this. You know. It's flatter area here on fire kind of rookies running here Brad breaking up plays but. At the same time. If you realize that after awhile the guys at a position all the time all confused hurt you now the two things have to happen he's. Either he is is not understanding what the scheme is how to read it this way things have changed immensely compared to when he was playing you know. College football. It certainly is different it is certainly is faster and the recognition part of it has to be. Does that to be something that you just know it almost becomes instinct. And and the fact he's not get it done tells you that he needs to sort look at Forte. In any also need to find you know that kind of stuff can really get you down you know it can really affect you as an athlete and the psyche of sometimes some athletes is it is delicate. Brett extremely between being on top of the world and and thinking that I don't know on my next what's up the story here. But the NFL makes it that way you know there's high pressure and look guys guys don't line your that'll time and they want this so yet. He needs to sit there with his coach did and needs to figure out okay. Give me some ideas on how I'm gonna rectify this and see if I get over this and then if he's somebody that. You know at some therapy some kind of sort of maybe get him out of the doldrums of thinking that maybe he's not gonna play this game. To sort of get him thinking that hey he's he's a positive confident guy to me that confidence goes a long way in this league especially was your psyche. I'm beginning to wonder though when you hear comments like that facility about the funny thing. And and you see him get placed on injured reserve with a knee injury that he apparently reactivated from what chomping describe it was that a preexisting injury from a year ago. I'm kind of wondering if this maybe is decency beautiful what kind of numbers honestly. Well they've very round maybe. I mean if given enough opportunities now to come and show what he can do it to prove himself and I think like everybody else thought we thought it was going to be really one of the better players the team. That Robertson came in and and really just took away from me he's never never get it back. And it doesn't look to me like he's going to so what they're gonna give him another chance hang onto a bit longer and see that. To be rectified or they're gonna give his team well quote unquote and and and move on with it and and see if they get something for him or altogether it's cut him loose. Early starts in the NFC south and Atlanta and Carolina in Charlotte you've been around that match up seats and Buccaneers today 3.5 kick off right here on saint radio to for the conversation at 504 to six so when he simply he also come out he has. Here at any thoughts in the downtown tartan studios and back on first think you ought to be the hero. Here meetings. First takes the court crushing Derek phone lines are open at 50426018. Sevens is set for. Saints and Buccaneers 325 kick off right here on. Saints radio that in this matchup this week do you break it down. Other gains across National Football League Atlanta and Carolina that's a big one at Charlotte by the way Ron Rivera's name is now surface for the potential. They can see in Los Angeles that might be and keep so look so so that he's he's already going to be out. What but. Look what he's what do you make of those reports last week and moved widow and now we had about a week that that just the reports though what the one. CBS and fox linking the Saints might have interest in movies Sean Payton for the right price and could be Los Angeles is that just the this is having laid. You know I. To me it doesn't do something happens. You know because they can there's a lot of speculation out there and there could be. It conjecture just from the standpoint of somebody saying something minutes will be taken that next level or or you know put attack on the end of it. And think and that's what's your idea I don't know I I've done night in the sort of the rumor mill thing of it but. The facts really sore at all Q with your hand and you know that you can't you can't really say anything to do something really happens or you know. For a fact that the source until we say it's a it's gonna happen and that in that arena I don't know. All I know is. Sean Pate is a great coach I know records of all time a lot of times a reflected. But I don't you get that's better I really don't what you get Belichick. You know me to look yeah you'd better get Parcells let the retirement or something really good luck is just not. And look I think he's. I think he's really true when that with a great innovative guys especially offensively. And look. Players play players aren't there are responsible for for winning football games you get good players and more good players that you're bad players. Jackson you're gonna win a football game there regardless of coaching coaching has a lot to do it but. Look it's it's all about personnel. Well let's do things is it for it for those that might think about the fact that oval you know was let Sean Payton walked shows you the commodity that he he is and how. He's held in high regard across Lee needed the work where seats fans might be a little upset because their went the last five years not winning seasons and potentially three in a row. Back to back 79 campaigns and you know it but it shows you though that if his knee keeps coming up you were in a year rout in coaching vacancies. What where they hold him. You know where they hold him across the what they think of him across the league that he's commodity they would be bloggers that you didn't know it. You know that Christian that if if that would ever happen or somehow they got rid him. He would make it ten feet out of the door of that facility the force is agent called says they have got six offers. You know I mean. What why would you do that I'd I'd I'd just I'd I don't think that he is when you look at it to grand scheme of things you look at the whole team where they are what they're doing. The key point fingers shopping and looked and oddly. Just got that I disagree that had a I think it ethic coach your your ultimately response you are your sibling who are out of my. Point is you're responsible for but the same time you can't sit there and sound man. All these coaching mistakes is what he made no it's personnel mistakes okay. That's a part I don't wanna get that conflicted with with coaching part of it in the Sean Payton may have something do with with personnel moves I'm sure that he does it at some level. But look. It's a tough for the guys to get the horses in here and you get the horses in here that he can coach him up until the until that point. Look you got to get better players and you gotta you gotta get players to hang on to you can't have this you know. Dead money out there that's been sitting out there now on these players that you still have to pay. That's that's a killer and our handicapped with this you know the salary cap is this a tough deal. 3.5 kickoffs Saints and Buccaneers look at the landscape in the AFC the playoff picture of the New England Patriots on top of the AFC east at twelve to Miami saying in their despite losing Ryan 1009 in five at Pittsburgh Steelers on top of the AFC north. With a 95 record Baltimore hot on their heels at 86. Tennessee about the Titans at 86. You can also had 86 in the it's it's outlet Titans team is. Is something else to watch than it pull off a big win last week over Kansas City come from behind victory. And I think that I thought there we go there and play well I thought Kansas City at this point was was especially at home but they're really really play well and and I figured in that. Mary ought to have played in the thing we know below freezing and all that kind of stuff and it did make one. Didn't make it to him and he he went out play in the pro am and they're. We face on that one that team right there is is a fun team to watch because they are. Downhill. Smash you in the mouth football I'm. Malarkey is is he's the perfect guy for that. Defensively. They can stuff you know and that they play a physical brand of football that I think a lot of teams in this league have gotten away from them. And I think the Titans are a team that discussion this time of the year in a run at it because of that type of defense and that kind of downhill running game. In the AFC west the Oakland Raiders on top of that that division now because the Titans knocking off Kansas City Chiefs even though it cities beat Oakland. Twice this year with their eleventh read the Chiefs attendance for the Denver Broncos defending world champions there 86 unraveling. Hear about the fighting that mean literally fight that was going on the finger pointing etc. from the offices the ground game. Last and you know what that is look. There's a lot of stuff there's this pressure because a lot of times. It's frustration to do a lot of times there is that's going on lots of locker rooms. Especially this time of year. He couldn't go on the Raiders locker destroyed it could be going on with the Giants. You don't hear about a lot of it but I can tell you there's been some times that there's there's them all out there's fights all the time in the locker rooms because. There's frustration there's pressure. It's coming down to it. And you know this time of the year in December is where you pretty much happen. To contend the contenders there the pretenders are on you know and now it's time that that things need to happen in a positive way so. Look if there's going to be times that that there's going to be a couple punches thrown in the locker room. Because somebody is like with some real Sicilian this'll be it feels like somebody's getting tossed owner or playing for something real life but that's that that that doesn't surprise me at all. It really does. Can it be healthy for a team. Depends on how you look at it to be healthy if you go ahead and and then get it out or that again leads to maybe some clarification on some issues can be helpful. And a lot of times you have that and then that was sort of the make up ability that has to come in that it's a lot of times publicly closer. It depends on your personality if you if you got guys that are quality people in that locker room. You should be able. You can you can make it wrong excuse you can make it right or wrong you know. Rating coveted sit tight you don't of the conversation as well at 2601870. Tech's 8771. Take life for meetings here on saint radio WW well enough and and dot com. Coming out of me any future prix in long. Here til 130 we'll hand things off the cajun cannon Bobby ware and be chief Deke Bellavia outside and he sees. Of the Mercedes bit pseudo for the but like count down the kick off Steve court crushing Derrick being out here Manning's. Phone lines open at 504260187. Tech's 8787. Look at the NFC playoff pictures to even get the Dallas Cowboys on top. Of the NFC east twelve and two record pretty much sense in that helped them. New York Giants late and eight of the day on Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles is that attendance five still have a shot at the playoffs as well between the lines. On top of the north nothing Green Bay Packers are gonna have something to say about that Tom threw the ball went through about two weeks of the season there 86 but. So that about him Rodgers whenever he talks whenever that might be some. Some adversity in that locker room and he hit it isn't a calming influence and also that you don't run saw that whenever six and six they want to grow they might win out. Well they certainly could that's a team right now let's get there's no question and in Rogers. That I'm just knowing he's. He's one of the few. Of the few quarterbacks you know in this league and they can make a huge difference. I turn it on when he plays well there's. There's not really anybody better than yours you know when you start to play well and right now he's getting some help because. Offensive line has been shuffled around with so many different types of injuries and things like that and okay James camp enough to like oops there. Real will play with a bit you know he's got his hands full with with plug in guys that are getting those guys rated player. The running game is. Spotty from time to time but. The Montgomery guys coming there was really give them that additional that there be enough. Slash wide out to right yeah. Guy now run that you a lot of Syria slot guy and obviously I think he's found a home now up to probably take that W or off off. He wears number 88 that probably changed everything wants to all that matters when. But nevertheless. Yeah that. That team right there and and they have a little bit of an advantage from the standpoint of when when teams play game in Green Bay. Look I don't care New York where you're from cold it's cold you know and the fact that they practice in those conditions. On purpose for that very thing. Makes them so what used to that. And not say they don't get colds and know they do that but they're they've become accustomed to he's one of those things were day after day after if they are in the cold weather like this plan. It's gonna affect yellow list that a team from say New Orleans or Tampa Bay Miami yourself like that it's been. Seventies and eighties you know late into the since late into the winter when the party of the year like it is now in the eagle there and it's you know one thing. That's problem. What happened to Minnesota Vikings announce evidence of the Kentucky smoking. I was Sam Bradford they often win I think 50 start that they've announced here they are 773 in his NFC north yet they really have just fallen off that and again. They figured after riddle. With them and and they figured out that it. You could move the football these guys just another stout defense from time to time and could play pretty well from time to time. You know but they've they've they're not very consistent and offensively. The quarterback went from playing really pretty well for the first half of the season and and recently. He hasn't so that that in of itself is is pretty much censorship. In the AFC south the Atlanta Falcons on top of that division they're playing the Panthers to Davidson and nine and five can't make them in the new world that he sticks the Saints and Panthers. Both at six and eight in the NFC west Seattle Seahawks 94 and one Arizona fighting one. The renter for ten and of course the 49ers and won thirteen think Cleveland. Well runs the table what I mean by that is goes 04 they'd be aligned so to speak in the only game. Yeah it's too. Hopefully I mean yeah. Nothing tells me that that they would lose it but but again. That's a dangerous group I can tell you right now that if they do you have. Some pride within that starting units of both sides of the football and I'm sure they do. Meant that that it's got to be a long season there I mean I. Unfortunately the only thing I've never been part of that but nevertheless I know walking into. A locker room knowing that your you know owns fourteen. And he got a few weeks left. That's probably. It's probably a little bit more difficult to stay focused on what you gotta do and I think a lot of players deacons were pulling themselves at that point. When you say that we need. I think you start thinking about themselves from the standpoint. Either might be your next year might not be here next year. Which can be. Lead two different things you can you know that you are moving on to a different team or. Cleveland like you know whoever comes in takes takes over the rains there that that they feel like that you played well enough. In the day in the season when you your own fourteen Stewart put that kind of protect your professional football player and and we like that so. You recently executed a higher level but you know there's that can win as individuals and and you have to do as a team so. It's I can't imagine being in this situation it's it's sort of what it's like to. It's a work study film and be you know that that's when you realize that you true professional. Is when you realize that you could bring each and every week no matter what the record is no matter what the opponent is but which still goes there each and every day and act like professionals. Or Cleveland since that oh and fourteen in San Francisco is not much better now that time I mean it well one win yet won thirteen ouch that's. It's not like moon monkey's off our back count facets of our ball if you miss you marvel at how fast your organization goes down real estate here. Onstage radio Steve Christian W to Molina and a cup. Our first date rules on the next hour for our whole Tony in Australia lead off he could jump in the conversation as well at final four. 260187.
