Al the NFL pre season games are over now the roster moves will be made in the left deceit. What happens in the saints are with them Mike retaliate joins us right now or DeVon WL NFL and college football analyst. Hey Mike. I thanks for a waking up early. Only would we will we saw last minus say that because. With the camera angle you can name's Ian numbers ours is playing in you can. Tivo it and then look back and see what they did between nine and you went assignment they aren't tell me what you saw. Well pretty much without seeing the first three pre season games. Trouble along the offensive line. Those secret. Certainly some mistakes made Oprah but you ran a full bowl will be better and you had. You know and in previous weeks and we promote sport. With the first team you stop the run. You had two decent drives that you put a few locals. But Thomas bill that this is football team that's going to be active will the weekend. In trying to quote are more players well certainly along the offensive line. There will be get beat it big time was so what's the pristine Munich pool. At the center position. They're gonna go out and get me back up says sometimes the Mac some but the football teams in a lot of trouble. Will be in trouble now when. Well regarded and so I think go to two areas of their cattle for offensively. All over the weekend I don't defense I would certainly think that deal out there arise now. For. A veteran cornerback. That the young kids got turned around pretty good last night. So I think it like to put somebody else back there other in Cortland Finnegan. With some experience and I thought Portland had a pretty good game I felt my body really played well last night when he had an opportunity to play. And the one really. I think get areas that you can point to and today. It was excellent all pre season Thomas Morse this is back after. A rough season with injuries not thought he really put it the football well you know what. Marcus Murphy. I think Gary's job. You got a TV knows Nancy I did I come back not immune. They know where you gonna cut down this and after he took it would you get upon Christian. Play he did a pretty doggone good job last night as the return man. And you hate to say this and you know coach would just laugh at me but even if he does. Every now and then not with any real frequency put it on the ground. You know and the cost benefit I'm definitely keep inning guy is he's got a talent when he comes returning kicks and punts. Does it and maybe Lewis is a secure guy kept in the ball. Blunt as a return man Merck is got to deal says pat. Nobody else on this football team passed that thing point not to let thought early on the all. The musician and Horton earnings deals well marketing group and CJ Spiller. We saw something the last couple weeks in Spiller. We had seen last year and that sort of build he'd cut the corner. Run the hard route would so some aides skills and and so hopefully that can continue because. First CJ. His job is to do would Reggie Bush and there's roles did at a now he may he can do it likes girls be in the special player Lynette. Blood. There is so big boy that was left once there aren't got traded to Philadelphia. Hopefully Spiller didn't feel that but the same needs in the same deficiencies that would for the first three weeks showed up last night and again. It's it's helpful and now the issues. Because pre season in a lot of aspects. Is a little bit. Real McCoy. Starts to boulder but this team has so some real weaknesses on it especially for a and that's. Concerning offensive line be. We take a break for traffic going come back I wanna go back to what did we see because there were a ton of ravens it didn't even make the trip. And if we didn't get a touchdown Drew Brees at least for a armaments score was who get a touchdown all assigned. Well of late. But not what drew. Yet so I guess and amassed in his who went who were we playing against and if he'll Flacco had been a game would we have even if it was first against spurs in the entire first quarter would it have been Pittsburgh. All over again I want to argument 77 to I think he's the new guy that we got from Miami. Well 4277. Line. Yeah he's that's a Beatles on begun what is he's addressed choice it would take him. The only two guys two and that police been in the week since the 1990. That's. That's been around awhile will begin in 32 but 2000. No it was out of football it was a back cope with the Oakland Raiders. And he came and actually this same year. Has Jammal Brown now so it was human consulates happily last year. As head coach in. And no flawed. 2000 pot. Got to saints finish you know in core. And note together Losman pre season games and a growing guest Mike Sean Payton seemed anything but continent last night when. He was saying well hopefully will will turn it around we know the areas and we'll fix it and from the in terms of what we saw last night before we get to that. But if you know those guys that made the trip with Baltimore and we're playing their real team even with our first team. Well. You know Bob opposite of pre game the two teams is the site with Google matchup well it's one has always never beaten. Of the ravens never. Bought Payton and breeze that the the only team that they have never beaten and they don't match up well that seems decent text. And for whatever reason. There's somebody like that on his schedule also everybody. But you know what he would have been somewhat to the steals game I mean you'd just don't match up well with them in the trenches. And again you you play line now in April the prettiest in completion. Of Elvis CNET got a girl. Part. You know if that's what it is Uga football team that. Managed well don't doesn't like to say it but it you know word you re building. And you've got some holes here. A soul you know that's the easy question about it this is a plea LT. You know right now everybody is a playoff team but in reality. You know that Hugh Laurie in the rebuilding stage of trying to get this team. Back again. And you know Russia made a comment. Couple weeks ago is that basically he you know ready. A piece this team together. What do you do. Trying to rebuild this football team. In enough time that Drew Brees still as football lightly in jail. As they did it to me goes beyond. What he says it's how he says oh. We've we've been a little bit of work in progress up front. On the offensive line and and hopefully. Know that can be. Cleaned up quickly. My probably exactly what. Mike you're I your sales numbers are weighed down what are you intend to fix it well hopefully. You know hopefully it will play singles and and be able. The code to resign to the fact yet he knows. What he's got in he got the deal wit and only candidates exit by coaching. He's got to fix that by better personnel. And at this late stage he knows that you can only do that to a certain extent whip. People that are cut from another team or possibly a trade but. Coming out Tuesday for saints fans they are going to be an active football team this weekend. And I wouldn't be surprised to see this team make four of five Mowlds. Acquisitions standpoint either. Waiver pick it's free agent pickups trades. Any big names that we might lose Arctic at this statement that's in the big name come chicken little's. So wrong with him. Yeah look I'm from our side that we would give up big name. I doubt that but I really believe that. At this stage he is trying to align and the winning combination any you know. That if he can protect from Brees this team can put up numbers. He's been atop Bible says it's every year. One and that was when he was six. So I think that. That's going to be his call in court again he's got to figure out a way to protect Brees put points on the board and hope. That defensively. You can get some Turco was to keep doing game. Does Drew Brees spent the last couple years. Of his career as a saint in the rebuilding stage and as a go try to you know suitable somewhere else. Well on this site that do everything I can't make sure he doesn't my attack got a son until long term deal tonight you know what. It's. Also whatever that. Actually does so with this contract and you got to put that aside. And somebody in this organization's got to step up NC what but still will not give. Dion. Mike I appreciate your time albeit agreed Labor Day weekend you guys second guess and only Saturday. At. Selfless casino on the beach in -- county Mississippi had a great week in Mike and will speculator. Appreciated and I might tell EA six Saturday when he from yelled we come back. At 260187. Mean what are your expectations. For the saints get given what you've seen so far what you heard so far the personnel moves at Saturn we still don't know who's gonna. Wind up being in on the final 53 but what what your expectations. Eight Nate. Less than that more than it is there any way you can build in your mind and narrative. Where they become the Cinderella. Story of the NFL come out of nowhere. It win the second number be in the cult he's X a 170.
