Well back our number two double coverage here on the ticket seventy divvied area OKG. Christened here is Al. Tonight as guy he filled in for the big chief ones after means player shows images myself. And Tim's ever the dynamic dual hold it down. Here in studio were talking in saints colts a battle of two. Mediocre teams well well like we kind of touched on last hour. We're not shooter in the colts are mediocre or at this early season struggles. Am I mean Angela is one and three right now as the colts starters are able to put set to do and three on Sunday or. Will there be content works equally bench and due from us. Now goes to continue to talk. Saints colts game. A mom also though restored to dive in a little bit of LSU this hour's that you're ready to welcome in the western Kentucky he'll toppers. One of the better mascots. And all of the NCAA here and the hill toppers and surprise enough Tim did you know west Kentucky the highest rated football team. In all of Kentucky. So sorry all you big blue fans rescued two years. Kind of they've taken that crowd for me and it makes cents. Why when you look at Saddam of western Kentucky's stats. Oh. Offensively just me and they're kind of out of this world and it all starts with the help covers cornerback Brandon Dodi. The Mets were poll question is a year for our number two you can jump on over to WWL. Dot com and down vote in the poll numbers court corporate Dodi says he hopes to shock people and upset LSU Saturday. You think it's possible do you give me chance red meaning its average chance did you give him a realistic chance to know the job. The instinct here it's Seau and surely surely however. When you load. Washington may put up some points I mean they may their offense. Might give them a chance Abdul get L she's passed the bench right now. They're allowed over a little. 200 yards per game to a five be exact. Like 45 in the country is not at its. Even that great but the real problem LG has been busted plays right he's gained an especially. They've reared their ugly heads last two weeks. In the wins over Florida and South Carolina. The tigers gave up eight passes. Of twenty yards along when you combine that. With the seven that they gave up in the air first four games while. You get a little worried you warning wise is popping up all cities is because your better competition here you are against. In other teams. In your conference or is that just the game play and that week something wasn't listed on the wasn't. Communicated. Correctly why continue to may be worry about this tiger second area a little bit is that. It goes back to your decision making ready goes back to some of the mental mistakes they made kind of the opposite. Of the quarterback situation brandy Ayers is decisions this year. Have been excellent on throughout the season even in the games where there really pour statistics where he was start in the ball was always almost it was almost always good. The execution. Is what lesson to be desired where that was. Dropping balls. He debated an actor did this center's gotten in the polar opposite where winning may the right decision when they're on the same page execution is perfect. On the it is very hard. Chewed you have patsy success against the deep into this much talent as LG backfield. And too many times this year. They have been on the same page in the battle off kilter and it's led the league busted place allos epics that RC has underneath pass attempt zero interceptions yeah yeah man. Still there. LG what located the fumbled punt last game so they now turn the ball over twice. On the entire year they're not forcing a ton of turnovers this season. I they've had eight right now they have forced any against Florida there. So he's still plus six in the year. 100% gain in the SEC BN legged like is that he's not being dangerous. With the ball when he is he's taking calculated risks. And you're seeing their relationship between. Brain and Ayers and Malick I du pre. Really vault right I mean what why the best player that everybody realizes that the best play from last Saturday's quarter wind was right before the half. On Florida drives down native scoring it's 2114. It looks like. You know the wing got to got to get Al she sails agree the Ballmer time nobody's really expect him to score and what is prayers to you. Uses his legs. Avoids Russia extends a player really launches one and you could say kinda threw it up would be great quarterbacks are the good it was have ways. Of throwing these jump balls in positions in situations which they'd trust a receiver to win. He trusted Malick I du pre. And Metallica du pre rewarded said trust and it's really nice to see both for du pre. And treatment to Ralph it's nice to see some of this wide receiver potential realized right I mean we talked eight on. About the ocean receivers in the quality of receiver recruit that they have many types in the best in the country viewers it will receive why would you come though she it. They keep putting together games. Mom like the last chewed and it's going to make a lot more sense but to get away from all she's offered to go back to Escude he's often. For a little bit exuberant dodi's a six and a fifth sixth of six. Year seniors so Tim already off the bat we have. I'm assuming that Els he's not used to this season that they are playing in a starting quarterback and now I hands and here you should be work. Like we said the the dude did not work this week for whatever reason I don't know why just odd. Kuwait security code code weak point currents can quit and they beat him. I was too body conscripts coincidence. Or mock what it took adds that he and whatever for recent era. Ellis you've faced backup quarterbacks kind of shocking. Which is what makes some of those stats but the big plays even worse but in Britain dude you're talking about an actual starting QB. A sixth year senior he's got great size 63. To twenty and just. Listen these numbers and last year he led the FBS he led the country there. With 4830. Yards past scene and 49. Touchdowns. It was due fifty touchdowns. How many games is west Kentucky to get to play twelve. Thirteen am most. Immutable and either way fifty touchdowns and almost 5000 yards. And this season you're bored dodi's picking up where he left off completing 74% of passes. Already has 2709. Yards of it he's thrown for 24 scores in just four. Interceptions. Haven't average. 24 to four he averages almost 400 yards a game. 387 to be exact it's good for the third in all a division one and here's a crazy streak one that Drew Brees fans. Are kind of used you don't he's thrown a touchdown. At least one touched it 21. Straight games that is he sick longest streak in the entire nation. Still. There is no doubt that western Kentucky they're there they're gonna bring the offered sequester means whether or not. LSU's defense can step up the player would look at this game Saturday that's really what makes it interesting right. It was a new one big thing for LSU it would be what are we going to learn. About the tigers' defense. Is the question Kentucky and terrible. Tiger offered should roll up and you wanna see continued growth in the patsy you're gonna see you later Burnett. But what we learn about the tigers' defense and said he can't me handle. These crazy. High octane. Spread attacks of this is kind of like these it's similar. The type of offense that you receive against film is an against tech scene and he basically have a lighter version. Of that and see on the defense forms are right. Coming up next. Can figure fumbles 50426018. There needed to X 87870. When he met Saturday's game vs west you tell you what has you most intrigued do you think the defense. Can stop this guilt hopper. Passing attack and that's a bigger reason. Later and yes. That. It gives me faith that the tigers did double coverage here in the big 870 WTO. Ambac to double covered here on it he says hey now. It's midnight he'd probably hear him Zimmer on the glass Christian gear is out means that dynamic duo. Hold down tegra journals he has and timber that for the break. I we were talking about LSU numbers western Kentucky. And I'll ask that question Debbie real dot com right now wise. Old Auburn cornerback Brandon Dodi. Says that the example toppers will shock. Ellis you want to keep you believe that. The opponents that they were gonna win that game it's absurd. Questions. Do you give them. Realistic chance in this tilt up rothmans. You're looking at a quarterback duties completed its deep for. Percent of his passes that means that three out of four times when he drops back. It is a positive. In at least complete partly there's a positive outcome that is server that 74. Target number 2007 yards. 24 touchdowns. In just four. Interceptions and why this may be worries. Tiger fans out from. Stamped with Italy's gained from the anybody really these there was intent you'll put together an affable fourth quarter or fourth quarter. Performance to. Q. Two to beat the tigers why this is worrisome melt you fans is that. The secondaries in little suspected time and what are the under. Developed underdog story lines about this season 40 she's ten. Has been affected this. This secondaries. It's pretty young they they really are yet haven't Albert true freshman. They're starting it also updated on mills back last week that big big. Just yet and that's really where all of this is going is that you have this incredibly and secondary. And one reason I maybe haven't talked about it it really talked of the Potomac two years can. Later for Nat the bears drowned the office that's really created this black holed it can house up all the Ella she talked into it. When you have a senior day yup it really helps you have. That he'd leave your right of the eerie experience guys that all of these young guys can look you come in times of crisis in well last. You mentioned in the limited role Jalen mills comes back you'd expect him to be back. Maybe a starting role this week he is the sole senior. In that defensive backfield like amongst the nine players. There rotating and out of singer he's the only senior there and it's not yes. That ease and it tells you for four years he has played the entire time he's been LC coming in this year. GO meals had started 39. Games. In nine games and that is really unfortunate. That he was able to that he did miss these first games of the year because. I think the record. I'm pretty sure it's a Ron black former LSU tackle Colt McCoy. Are tied for 53 starts. And more male starts in thirteen games. RE read he had the chance to you know be hating on her. He'd been out near there at fifty twos to record these are record so you have a guy just incredible. Experience back there and really the quarterback of that secondary. And you know will he be the key. Will he be to keep giving this hellish deacons back on toward cutting down on the miss communications. And giving you ain't going forward if they get beat Ole boys they get beat texted him is like we said. This western Kentucky team. And the the issues that they represented LSU it's a lot of these same issues. That it's. Ole miss will bring about the Texas in hand. Will bring about and wedged it to his team that has a lot of confidence or 61. There's three and one against the SEC since 2012. Now they haven't agreed against ranked teams. Just one and three. One of those losses coming files you actually back in 2011. But. There they. They are. Going to be scared to connect to be afraid exit date plate and Alabama has says they played. In all these hostile environment and if you look at their last 36 games Tim. It doesn't matter who they've played they've led in 35. Of those 36 games they believe me in the last four games alone. They've taken 42 point 25 point 38 point twenty point leads. In the halftime so. Where were in your team like that they. They want to derail. L issues. C.'s net that's de L opera's golden setter right now. It's my pleasure to welcome and Brett Martel Associated Press writer for a big or on tape and the LT tiger at Brett Martel on Twitter. Brett what's going on brother and I guess we'll start over talking about. When you look at this LSU west did Tug matchup on Saturday. What's most intriguing aspect of it is it. The west could take offense vs L she sang and there. That's what I would say it but not to the secondary the Pat's question. You know it really stepped up its source this year seventeen fact that two shy of what thirteen games last year. So. You know I'm curious really it's the you know is growing for about four yard gain. Is gonna hold up. In Tiger Stadium which you know for a lot of these mile program I mean you know I'm there. These mid majors and you you know a crowd and 2030000. Eritrea. And then talking about. Very aggressive blitzing schemes queue up unused. In addition you know Barry and strong demand strong linemen man tall athletic. Cornerback to a cue up in a couple one on one. Think that hole. Package is something that. It is going to be very unfamiliar to electric and got in cheers though that's a challenge. So when you were when you look at this wedge Kentucky game obviously. It's a look LSU. Each unit we've vision without question. Is there any danger though that tells you look ahead right they're looking ahead to Alabama could we do I've got to be trying to avoid talking about it. But at this point in the year. Alabama is the giant elephant in the room almost every talking point you make about the tigers. Really kind of whether it's on the servicer and under current relates back to Alabama do they overlooked held toppers. And potentially land themselves and how water. I doubt on that date on my explained that journalists obviously you'd say that's not my approaches then. Key arm. Is good about respecting. Yeah every opponent and trying to get got a focus and play hard and everybody. I'm doesn't always work out that way and they admitted to cash in game. The data in. Pat quite focused during the week leading up to that that they want to. But I'm I'm guessing that they kinda. Can use he missed in game. As a talking points at eight point. And and that's about it this happened. You know. Let's has really been touting good what I can suck up and I spent in getting the ball wired up that challenge. And and of course to note that in. Opera is running game which what would have written under par on our game. Yeah I mean I mean it started yes why hasn't made since at a certain point man is get a pitcher drop off the ground when you see. Rushing stats like and that's really why west Kentucky doesn't have a chance. Is has even if their offense has some success I don't know how in the world. They're deep pit stop so she's attacked especially if the passing game teams to Ballmer talking to Brett Martel at. Brett Martel on Twitter Associated Press writer for the world saints an. Oh she tigers and moving on to Sunday's game Brett. Saints verse colts perhaps could help me out with this and so that. I'd been wrestling with and going beggar for the Cammie in my mind are the Indianapolis Colts aren't any good team like an NFL terms. Are they good if good means playoff. Yeah that that. That's a tough one. I would. You know they were at home of course again coming on Sunday night you know. Even amateur and gentlemen nine. But I'd I'd feel like editor Matt botched. You know take on anyone Paula Iowa that'll get him and indeed looked pretty competitive. Her good portion and you know outdated. That that weird day and then went down scored Iguchi touchdown in China controlled the game. You know never completely out in regions of the end. Overall. Indeed looks competitive. I don't know about I don't know about a playoff but. I think we've seen out teams can. Including people like a giant years and can add extra. Later in the year. And you know it would look deeper and I mean you've got an outline. The you know beat up and not apple are well this year. You know the struggling global. Been consistent yet that might be this might be the right time. It is and catch them but I don't think they have the potential to be really good on any given you know somebody. Well I mean it's kind of funny because there there are a lot of similarities. Between these two teams in the current personnel standpoint the colts are. A bit more talented but we both of these teams. You always have to give them a fighter's chance because of the quarterbacks and looking at Sunday's games. The defense is par poor especially. Both teams struggled to get in the past. On if this turns into a shoot out. Candy saints' offense keep pace 'cause we distinct opens his odd this year Brett. And then. A lot of the stats are bad except for the only stat which matters which is points per game. And you'll. I'm inclined to believe they can keep pace. You know it's. It really a lot depends on how detailed exploit matchups but. At stake him that and trying to figure at a yet he bestowed on a regular basis. Do you look you know you look at francoeur broke when when you think about it. You Ingram men and Robinson. Wheeler should be just as good as. Point Frank Gore deaths. And probably a lot more work. I think that they can keep pace. Put. Yeah Beecher history. That that the reason but it could keep it just because that left him arrogant manner. Was probably the most hopeful performance artist but he up and if you look at some of the pros that you pre made. And in particular one. When I think about it seems kind of rolling out and kind of went across the body. And hit Ben Watson on the crossing route first parent and a number that second half past. But you know winners about coming back sore shoulder and makes elect that it really makes you feel like at the corner turning the corner. Two really good point in that is a that is just kind of one of those pure brute force arm strength. Tied to throw speaking of been watching and I'm really rough starts this in for him. He was actually like when you get in a match or whoever he was last in the NFL for tight ends. Soars yards per route run spin better the last few weeks right he's already. Now grabbed 25. 35 KS 25 catches already which is more. In his first two years this aides got touchdowns. In consecutive games is he someone days you'll continue to see be more involved even if it's not like. What was it ten catches for whatever hot a hundred some like it was it's falcons. Yeah Atlanta I don't regret it and probably in part because when a guy and the bomb plotter you mentioned that not gotten in order to. But he has I mean his career he's been kind of clutch I would Tom Brady and and he did all right Cleveland. And you know when you think about on patent in the way he breaks down but he and Kiki usually pretty good at. Trying to figure out why guys like that aren't being successful in making maybe some minor adjustments and not running around like not just the can. Helped. You know. Like I get help those guys turn the corner and term production and so I'd be inclined thing that. Without performance against Atlanta. As a potential should be the first of a number of good performances unless of course Cheney's decided that he gotten to game plan foreign. And start trying to shut them down which it is you know. Pretty respond with the other receivers. He is Brett Martel at Brett Martel on Twitter says she pressed for an unseen and Ellis tigers Bret thank you so much for odd coming on the diamond. All right rob Henry law on bone and we the that. Grip would be incredibly supportive. Is firstly which it is Kate. I don't know all pop out. Some some aren't coming up next here a double coverage. What I want and now. 54221. Entity called street in Texas that eats it needs him only know them the game's on the line send. You know one drive to win the game. Which quarterback. Or you backing Andrew Luck. We're Drew Brees. Q would you want with all chipped in exit we have the whole thing on line. David got to figure out gets you next here on double coverage on the big 87 to beat real. Welcome back double coverage here on the big. It's heavy W real before we get to this breeze for salon game on the line question. Telephone glad to get David in Covington talk about west Texas quarterback branded Dodi go to tiger's aide David to comment. Org or Cuba I hear that and it's the same composition name pops. We have good note. Please please do. I mean that the global plate you know NCAA guests usually congress exactly. But I mean I would it is scheduled they'd be paying a fortune to Wear out yeah I mean to me at all. Hope we're in to a it to me it summed it. I mean if you look at this scandal. That's what I mean they play an important point and I. Absolutely if you're right they are made major rights and their doctor and have this really impressive crazy schedule I guess my bigger question is though like. What do you expect out of this Alicia defense will they shut down this offense. Do you know the average get to twenty point. Look I CO she's offense scored around forty points when adults are there not there there this second highest score and offered in the SEC you're now the tigers are. So I'm not worried about elves you losing this game. I just wanna know. Big. What we just handed what kind of success. Will deepen tag is like I said this. Style of offense like west integrity actually going to run into Purcell miss entered go right to run into. Verse Tex a and M do you think they hold they held toppers 120. It had a smile on an island I was the detriment. Items that. That the car and about it. Think when he would you say that decision scored one put us yet school that. You know the important it is there a means opening game it's going to be able and like it no doubt that guy and the good quarterback. Media agencies that defense like that got in your life like you know that's two point. That LSU pass rush last year thirteen games. Nineteen sacks this hour in six games seventeen sex coach row already making his presence felt day before I let you go. And your luck due Brees gave a line. One quarterback you back one guy that we knew the game here you go with. Analytic both got banged up so that breeds lack of it and but it. About players say it to Bobo and had to pick between Hitler. Ago I agree I think it's a good oh good out just as sabre unit though I mean I think we are right. Every oh yeah we go David actually looked. I guess everybody's seen breeze everybody on Twitter tech everything breeze I I think the correct answer here those ten. Is actually Angela. Ina and view man. Goblet is let's take a look. At their career fourth quarter comebacks in game. Drew Brees has been in the league fourteen years now. He's got 25. Fourth quarter comes that could fourth quarter comebacks and 37 game winning drives clutch and that's also right. He's won tootsie rolls and he's he performed with everything was on line. Hearing Andrew Luck is. Just four years in the league. He's already got came in fourth quarter comebacks when you do the math it's here and play in fourteen years you have brown. You year round 3234. Erica back here to get this pace up he got thirteen game winning drives. So I a year fourteen would have round. Forty game window so the air that at least as far as east goes. Jewel at. Will early in his career he's he's been president breeds these linking final drive situations. I will say Andrew Luck right now industry is it its young and he'll have a lot more opportunities going forward but. I'm still taken breeze here present it before and when the games on line it is in the dome and there's less than two minutes left I'm taken breeze of law. Well given him try to like. I'm using it for me you're playing standpoint right every everything else being equal let's say we give in the same offensive line. Let's say we give them this ain't home field advantage rightly or widgets just on eight pure we talked better samurai battle earlier right you have the grizzled old debt in Drew Brees. Scars all over his face. He even he just he walks with that kind of it tired gate if someone who's been in battles throughout his life and you guiding Andrew Luck who's the young challengers kettles freeing. In his step who are you taking. All I'll sequel it's an email you know a big key differences. Why am going look in the game winning drive situations and you've seen on these drives like him when it. X his legs and is that what it always goes back. With the vigilant while why people like him so much is he has the ability to run uses that is Cam Newton. He again. I don't what are invoked the name of Roger's here because obviously he's got on that level yet but he has the physical ability. To run and throw the ball like Aaron Rodgers does. And as much I loved your resume it is not taking anything away from Brees is numbers up he's got the Super Bowl so he's done. With everything in line but I just think that nowadays. At this time. The correct answer there is Angela what do you think tax aide said it's seventy. Call five before she's so 187. Is double coverage ramped up our number two. When we get back here on the big it's heavy W ago. Welcome back to double coverage here of negates that he'd have real I don't know how in the world of your lives here and I don't know how you're managing to pay attention. With another incredibly exciting addition of Thursday night football. Seahawks winning twenty the niners. Some groups game. It is just it's it's it's just agree and this the -- of the line remains. Unable to block. Its average Cisco look at that would. Ensue you. So we'll see that looked like a screen pass that bad blocking and for all the things are due catches 31 yards. Yeah cram watched 2015 I do like Al. Every state and atom bomb be. It gives them solace that Seagram's. Plate specially after tweeting that's of I agreed earlier knock this whole Lotta Jimmy Graham because he hit a really really hard Eric Reid has been known to take a few souls in Tuesday. I think back that Arkansas game where from. He actually tackled that catching him did penalty that was mallet last year in Tiger Stadium the FTV's. Most intriguing part. About this every Cisco Seattle game. Is the fact that coming into it both teams who were two and four hardly anybody saw that with the Seahawks aids Seahawks team that. As much is. Their negligent done so what's up man I gotcha nice that O'Keefe after the game don't worry about it. But. With a Seahawks it's crazy as much as I I'd really bemoan. They're often the line play because it's terrible on it's it's Russell Wilson for his life. Marshawn Lynch isn't having the best year. Really the all of its at least in crunch time hasn't been lost in the game. I guess in the office just plain better may that should have bigger leads to make those are its old date but they've had a lead. I think in all four losses right in the fourth quarter. And it's the defense they're dated a blown and doesn't look they gonna blow it tonight so. In case there was any doubt the niners remain at the bottom of the NFC west wall the Seahawks got pulled themselves back a little bit to John I suing the cardinals are the favorite in that division are they the best division still. The US. I'm not so sure I mean. And like it's you would be better right now. Yeah. This at all the hot take it from worst to first the five at one falcon the seeks you know and thirds. But then you have the U and force it may be three imports what's the box record. You for that plagued the hat is two and four. You would be that the happy is to three in the entire NFL right. When they won that home game I've ever seen so much celebration it was like Lovie Smith is first don't win the two years. Does them on Eli did. Get better I don't think the NFC on the NFC south is there yet I'm not sure of the FC west. Is still the best to be better. It's the who's and that's Ozzie may be ignored right with what New England obviously it's a strong play. I think O duties to owner exact okay Cincinnati. Will Pittsburgh Pittsburgh LP should be good. In. Now over the ravens are the ravens' track so or maybe there's not just a clear best division in. The NFL this year. So people not green with mean. With. The Drew Brees being. Say. Oh woody Cady and it would all things of course got a T degrees. I just I. I'm not sure man and I did and this is what my main issues that almost every response in breezes favor. As its long lines at least once you verbal he's done it before too many times. In sports talk right we have these discussions that we had these debates we lets you Robles in conversations. Any. It's not actually finger right exactly. Dilfer or Brad Johnson like these big quarterbacks at once people that are not great. But because once he was all right Tom he's done before that's not what I've talked to make some one drive to winning game luck or breeze. Now at this point their careers outlooks. Or 2000 votes to go. You're a double coverage they gates have become an X I got X six of acres here also are. Different for token.
