It because not that you have any physical exertion but I have noticed specifically. Last year's season opener against the vikings. The it was a point where they -- -- game -- that they want to review. And the official was. Look in the -- And -- about an IQ is stand there and I watched you you have you're you're Seidler -- the Steinfeld. A unique. Talent when it comes to being able aside a lot today at -- replay Booth and income you get the word before ideals don't. -- out -- seekers out Tommy thanks now NFL's that we look at for. I just Hispanic you Canon nonchalantly walked out there and the next thing you know legislate drug it was it Rob Schneider and it's Steinfeld episode -- -- Seidler. Yeah you're kinda sidled up there in the word out so you -- the microphone you about in your town about it would happen. Literally fifteen seconds before anybody else knew it. Well now all time. I'm not the only -- -- somebody knows to look like that's the thing. So actually tell me about tonight calendar uses start. Well look you know anywhere from 1218 snaps and a -- -- things that I guess this post practice conference. And you know -- -- -- would Drew Brees guys like Jonathan -- Darren Sproles.

In most of the the -- of guys is their opportunity to prove that they are. They deserve a shot to be a backup -- -- an understudy to somebody or guys and a fight to make this roster rookies young players. Or better trying to hang on will give you one more chance to hang on -- at all and it's LT. Now you know it is around here I got the hook up. So I was able to get tickets to the game tonight from my sister. Sobbing on and obligate people will be looking and well we think thank you and the people I'll be looking forward to see in. Our. Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles -- I get this eleven imminent. Q do you see more of Mark -- and Darren Sproles -- I think so it has to do with the fact that marking of the rookie in. If you wanna see him again and expose him on tape and an -- in you know bill that could teach him annihilate him. There is polls they don't know with a guy he's been in the league several years now so. They've done -- they understand what they have an -- not player. And you know Hillary is an injury nor do they really want to risk marketing of injury but the stuff to get in his carries in the -- -- being used to. Player in L level and also academies in the speed of the episode. -- anything else what religion I I'm I was negligent mentioning to this mentioning this also creation a federal appeals court has ruled. That it is illegal for the federal government to require. If people to buy health insurance eleven update from that from CBS in about a minute and a half but anything else who should look for tonight. Just watch the full competition between Dave Collins and Korey Hall. That's positioned company air right now also keep an -- on the outside linebacker position again chance take a look at their third round draft pick from the April marked as Wilson. He's he's an athletic as a linebacker that accurately can after the passer he's been precedent times. Their training camp but he's also looked like it look like a rookie and keep it on a special teams how much improvement that they make there won't be easy to just take away. All of that and one game you can that you start to get a glimpse into how that's gonna shake out.
