The New York Giants represent a bit of a match-up nightmare for this Saints team however, if there is a weakness to this Giants team it remains Big Blue’s offensive line considering the fact that the Saints did not manage a single sack in week one do you think the Black and Gold can exploit this weakness?

Tyrod Taylor. Coming up game once again for the bills that long touchdown pass of the night. Now is down 27 team to New York Jets have a problem is Tyrod. He's eighty yards jobs not a single wonders and Watkins oh man. What. Are. Okay actually you know I want him to be cheese dogs and while I'll sacrifice my truly loves him Watkins does that. Would you do it and you talk we've got more coming up. In our number three of the program. It's a real quick grizzled wrap up our oil shipments to be state series so. And that will be in an article of going to be like on the morning. Monterey big questions and you exploit the weakness in the in this city State's secondary. More specifically candy and yet exploit that weakness. Cam is eligible for the blind hold up against what is the theory good means to be stayed in the rock and coincidentally they're best at creating. A good pass deep into it they're gonna protect those corners going to be to get him at least face. And then finally Christian just real quick how will Dave and his defense hold up against Mick FitzGerald. And gamble and spread attack. So last week in EIG gets the air corps retired the best dual threat to the entire nation. He ran 26 zone read plays it like 104 yards it's Jacksonville State. Impressive production. Four and all of that line that's odds and school. Of that size present at LSU this week you're going to be going against better lines going to be going against. Maybe not a better quarterback but probably a more talented offense. As a whole and when you look at nick FitzGerald Cato he's a sophomore last week. Complete 65%. Of his as a reason he started the first he had two bad suited to mass audience at Alabama. And they put it. Though Louisiana. Actually. Oddly doesn't matter anyway you replace him. Jamie Williams yes above Gerald to replace him we'd sixty fives in his past 178 years ten TDs. But here in the ball seventeen times for injury in 95 yards agents after. He seeks five. 230 so he has size he has the lettuce isn't. He could potentially challenge. These Dave Randi deep to those of the questions that I need answers to. If Ellis you ariz there are those the answers will decide whether or not Ellis who's going to get beat Mississippi State on Saturday. Just just add to that that concern and particular. Quarterback with FitzGerald put. Really that's I think the spread offense is a bit puzzling to this hellish defense that's not quite settled yet gap under Dave run so that's another element that that. It's to Daytona now certainly hasn't their feet. I will say this side of a great coach is if you sense a weakness you like snuff it out right as as quickly as possible and you have to imagine going in Q and in going to Jackson State game they were certainly practicing against zone read. Now they have film on a they have miseries he busy via Auburn next exit you know very similar. Type of offense so IA because I believe Dave Randi is a good coach I do believe. That these changes is improvement. Will come relatively quickly I mean even in the Jackson State game by the end. They were much better in zone read then the beginning but it's something. To keep an eye on I didn't get to Ericsson got too long waited may be at last Sarah FitzGerald give you the Danny at least silver lining. Kind of RAMP. That I have prepared just the way overly optimistic grant but for now Christian concerted ready yet talked to Jeff Duncan. A build it comes time to review here in a few minutes for now let's shift to the saints. And New Orleans Saints. Big blue dead in New York Giants in that is it's still the meadowlands. Is that is that right. Well it's MetLife stadium at the medal but it's at the melons OK so we still say like in the meadowlands for the teaser. Yet but dig deep around to what was it and seeing gains last year but when you look at it. It's a match up nightmare from New Orleans like really. Top to bottom Christian where like anything the saints do all right. The giants that's also straight they're team where they're just better than needing the saints are poor at the giant steam in a great position to export. Interesting to note today though that both the giants and c.'s defense are looking for their first sack. In their first turnover they get it in week one OK so. That's going to be something. I guess highlight our watch and you know we all know how important sacks are we all know how important. Turnovers are now is fascinated to understand that's our RC that's that. And you know that is my big question that's they had in the tees today is can the same skills what did the giants alive is not as good as the raiders O line. Just like on the flip side the saints O line is not as good as the cowboys know I mean there are arguments to be made. The raiders cowboys have the best groups up front in the entire week. So both these Stevens were challenged off the bat. Both these deep kids are going to have a lesser challenge this week ever look Singtel and played admirably. In the giant Sidwell they ran the ball much better than last year. Eli had time. So definitely who's able to achieve that pass or should go a long way towards siding can there's one way to stop the league quarterback. It's to get in their face and when you look at Drew Brees Christian what what what has always been kind of viewed as the the Achilles heal the ultimate weakness the way to exploit your breeze it's interior pressure. Andy's yes and the giants have the tools to do that. Yet look at it that's big. The Kryptonite for Brees and the saints offense in general and the way it's constructed they create passing lane and loved. Decree passing lanes in that offensive line in the interior by how they tallies keep certain please yeah. The team that had the most success has been able to get pressure up the middle. And keep Greece from Beatles that opened that pocket now for me I just think that. If you look at the collection of wide receivers that they have Victor Cruz in O'Dell Beckham junior and sterling Shepperd who now I think the seats were crying at one point that it would go with Mike Thompson to work output. The the collection receivers. Against the state secondary. It is alarming. Compared to the saints receivers that is a new law is a giant secretary while it's still positive athlete and it and it's for the saint it's not as nearly as unnerving. And win we. Look coming up next year double covered and talked to Jeff Duncan about what he views on the street in game will also. Pig jett's brain global right don't they have at this you're clinch in this region. At this view this really huge game for the carnal would just sit no fat and cocky he's got an eleven the ranking under his belt. Little holes rock in some some sweet alternate beauties like should I choose to but I won't think just read about all this and more and then later. I'm going to explain to you. Why you should be so worried this three week. About the interior pass rush of the New York Giants to double coverage or diverted BL AM after the dot com. Don't want to go back double coverage here on them that the LA measurement dot com don't look can now. By the bills and out of nowhere have completely erased a 2010 deficit now lead 2420. Following a scoop and score obviously I pleasurable and Jeff Duncan at Jeff Doug and underscore on Twitter saying columnist and all like how many times. Pig you really nuts seeds columnist is the overall sports sage if you will Jeff puts up mandates should take him a few minutes out join us tonight. My pleasure thanks Ramsey analyst on. Hey so I Jeb for talking saints G men and really on paper this looks like a bit of a nightmare match up. Four New Orleans especially in light of the number of injury. But it is one group that maybe you can exploit over the greater well we won it that giants' offensive line. The question is can the saints affected my hand this seems affect Eli Manning on Sunday. About current point picker anchored there are going in regard Eli Eli is not a there caller that met applicability. It will that statue left in the pocket. Lies on the protection. And saint can get Ackerman and that talent come up with a really good scheme maybe do in the nose that you will. I think it'll help protect. That injury riddled secondary they've got to get some kind of rush. On Eli. Or else could be a lot of data that you don't got time on the planet receiver got a great receiving corps. Jeff Duncan had Jeff Duncan underscore on Twitter states columns no comment I speak union. Jeff when you look at. The prospect of the seats going 02 which I think is very real very real possibility. What do you think that that would do in this young teams confidence. Move report because when they get after the bye week. That's schedule is almost. I mean it's I can't fathom how you gonna see a lot of wins in that stretch. Yeah you know Christian I think the young the fact that he got a lot on player actually IP OK because it. The third epic beard that are there energetic there that room there trying to figure things out along the way. So I don't think it can affect the younger players more of them bad guys in here say it Backstreet might be in the final year and he realizes. You know what we're not going anywhere and go to the people award I've been exactly professional I'll call him out. Country's gonna give Irving got that while outward about some of the veteran players to. Are trying to make it back to play at all. They start to cease to lose lots of early on and recognize that this team that haven't rebuilt eighty. Will see what's gonna happen now the elaborate at soccer team. Saw it last year if you explain eroding gains down the stretch. It very little late for they sold out one although Rio last four games ago you know that that anger and a. Are just done and at just done an underscore on Twitter columnist and all column in the times Picayune. Jeff showed the saints defensive secondaries depleted right now. A couple of new faces in that cornerback grew my guess I'll just kind of expose myself that big it's like really PW web and then not sterling Moore is that right. Yep which Staley recovered O'Dell couple times. Last year and pre game. OK so this is the question and Jeff can these new cornerbacks like. Can may have an impact is he going to be as bad as what we witnessed in the fourth quarter of last Sunday. Well and look at the quality in view with Geiger the couple street it's a pianist Allen. What you need you to protect these guys and he'd get a lot of economic cover tune. Except back drop 78. That's why passionately that affect the election report guy. That he blitzes. Conversely. Not to get off topic here but. Didn't really come after breed and a lot of people talk about how well. Off and landing at an IP did a good plan for Mac. But the record works out of debris. So I think all at bat back in the coverage. In Libya he Allen. Exit note wise to try and protect this secondary. And maybe bigger than all of the Christian seat checks while trapped. Yet you know made maybe case last week at Oakland on that you get pressured justice for in the giants. If they do it in the cowboys though lie on the defensive linemen they invested in heavily. Two decent as well our Jeff and I know you have to run real quick last one before you go your cardinals. Big weekend. At this you should all fat and cocky got eleven. Got a sexy new use means. You feel. Look at your game it's arguably be good if not he'd be game and little history the college game gave the first time. It's a litmus test them in the big plate for a year ago. There are keen. On that the number two team in the country and it you know they'd let it heat seeking you can appreciate Cuba. The app. Is the litmus I mean annual expanded nuclear. Had a record three or six years ago at all it just got in the second half. A look at other gonna play well Mark Jackson has a terrific talent. They'll be in the game and the and the and and there are outward app went pork steak and that. Jeff Duncan at Jeff Duncan underscore column a signal a common times a year Jeff go to jury Germond thank you. At risk seeing you Saturday Jeff. Aren't there about cricket coach months. Can together New York City. Channel. And little. Committed currently the Big Apple. What do I elite what is KG do on a weekend in the Big Apple and you know what decade dot com. It's a start and no one listens on Thursday night if we can get away with making him. Again six straight jokes this is probably the night to do it. Note Jeff came up with they this research as he does so well i.'s evidence that his columns. But he keep its research and there's an LSU hang out up there at New York's if they text earlier mayor may now be one of managers. Guys I'm at my sister doing his deal that brings. Now mountain I don't know I can't remember driver you've to surmise is used to live in New York for years enters starter clothing company that she now runs. And yet and so they would watch him bounced on college at times you watch deals you gave at that big LSU bar all the alumni go and died so just. A little gap for beyond look at. Yeah that's what Jeff said is that its the alumni spot so yep that's org on a Saturday night Susie just the whole media crew going to watch a little. Go to watch a little what you call a little like college football. Okay I think yet just comedic troupe but here's the pickle so attitudes about the dinner. Yeah but to clients or at dinner. That well in war I hang out with. Crew liked college football. Now what's what is now Wednesday the clients from WBO what is. Ali it's like I do like is like always a number of case you have a busy is verses like fun operative yeah yeah yeah. Man it hitters gonna be really good. And if you're not paying for dinner did you buy it fat steak exactly it is rolled up one member that somebody else's pain or the most expensive thing on the main. Hit double covered device here's a CBS news advice and. CBS news update. Back from her bout with pneumonia Hillary Clinton put in a busy campaign day speaking in greens or North Carolina and deceiving to the congressional Hispanic caucus institute in Washington. She go to the Donald Trump fueled the controversy over president Obama's citizenship and in an interview with the Washington Post refused to back down. He was asked one more time. Where it was President Obama born. Any still wouldn't say. Hawaii. He still wouldn't say. America. She couldn bigotry. Trump speaking to the economic club of New York said more attention needs to be paid to problems at home. I'm not running. To be the president of the world I'm running to be the president of the United States of America. He outlined a plan for economic growth and calls for less government regulation and four point four trillion dollars in tax cuts over ten years. He said growth would create 25 million new jobs. CBS news update I'm bill Whitney. It's audiences this job and it involved. Do you know paid out. I do not so Alison Jane I don't know the route I think that that's it is my playlist I don't know. Yeah I know. I mean when we put together this list I tried to do right by. You did a great job I X I love our our selection should techs are probably know attacks age 7870. We are talking saints this hour I still won't get into this. NFL on Twitter conversation I'd say the very beginning of next our because it's. Fascinating. To me. But Christian rule we were discussing before you talk to Jeff the interior pass rush. Of the New York judge talked about it yesterday the giants. OK after week one everybody's all about him. They literally invested 200 million dollars into that line in the offseason so really for sinks into housing about his vision in a weird way. Like they kind of represented. What this saints want to do this next off season. So so image Jacksonville they were the big winners of creates it's very small part of view like almost in a way once too like when reminder of just kind of plan works for the giant. Is it gives ending the black and gold to handle over the future that you can if you have the pieces like a really good quarterback. And you do the receiving courts or other strengths that the giants have you you have a few pieces that. With a ton of cap space you can go out there and make significant strides well. A couple of these significant strides in giants' Steve is sought to make this policy we talk to Olivier Vernon didn't a job. Ed the third largest of its contract in NFL history. Despite never mean good numbers not like great numbers necessarily. And the and we talked about game in big snacks. Here SC now. You heard a big snacks Credo. Yeah eight. Yeah okay sue this guy go 64350. Lake Charles Boston basketball player tears and CA date and zeal in high school games fifty counts is what ever hopefully pull my senior year. The garlic William Penn. I don't know he finally makes the NFL hole in this same journey he's in eastern New Iberia, Louisiana. New beard. While I don't saints fans were clamoring. To create there were clamoring he's got it can be and I am in doubt this. You NN money team right is that we talked about last night's over anybody's had kept out of the deal why do you go get big snacks. Louisiana made. All pro mean he was on pro football coaches all pro team that's it global. Suffering and voted all pro means you are the best at your position in when he comes to run stoppers a dog. There's no one better. The Dana Dixon taxpayers interviewer a look at the week that the that this is the week where the seeds are going you. Fighting redeemer build on the running game all the that you have to do a respectable job last week I wanna hold your breath now. While big snacks is in much of too much of an issue with the interior pressure rush wise although. With the saints guards kind of rain to be seen you do need to be worried about is Olivier Vernon. When he moved into the inside against the cowboys. He dominated well counts. He didn't get its act but he had multiple pressures he was also excellent against the run so. Against. The difference between the challenge presented to deal line this week. In last week is that last week that tackles were asked to do the majority of heavy lifting right like they were asked to block Bruce Irving into Leo Mac. This week. I think don't it's might be on the interior. Whatever it may be that short changes born and when he's on the edge and then of course it Jason Peter Paul. Who's back in looks like Jason Pierre Paul even if he had on what that's going to. Oh was house now I I was a giants podcast early in the said he was Abbe didn't seem overly worried. About it so alive rally would. Be injury reports coming at weirder with the questionable designation changes right. Yet has put. For a player to show up on Thursday. Posey went on the report yesterday. That's why can't be at times a bit puzzling and you don't know why Willis is something. Woke up at sorties treat because the rules say that you receive treatment. In the facility that you have to be on. The major reports it is hard to know his ain't it don't disclose a lot of apple whenever you show up your army report that week that you haven't been on the day before it's always. It's always worth noting. So Tim is saying that I Han Kim got a little. They'll latch on back there oh OK now they did what a dramatic grew disgusted look on his face he's put his. Facing a shirt and I thought maybe kinda aired out himself but. He says he just a picture Jason Pierre Paul's figure out which is Alia delegates and yet it's not pretty but does matter because he's ball again. Mom. Now or he's on the other Christian because Tim Tim got me a location didn't look it up. It is seen that he's expected to practice tomorrow and expected to play on Sunday but we will. Q denial like it's it's that we might be short changing. Pierre Paul. In the inverted when he's on the outside but I do you believe that this week more than last injures Pete. Jahri Evans whatever action Tim Alito sees whatever actions in your cal met de sees Max Unger. That core three they're going to decide the success of the pains of the saints. Rushing and passing games this week. And looked at a little. Unnerving to just because it is Peters had his woes evening as the raiders of the offensive lineman at that he was the one that struggled the most at the office of mine as a whole. Protected Drew Brees pretty well but you know that match up with the interest Pete who has been susceptible to to speed rushers and power ruptures. It's being in the pre season we've seen. But yeah I'm a little alarmed about that one that those matchups. Speaking of the office of line. Steve court grated every who likes every snap a great deal line. And wanna I wanna his criticisms. Of interest Pete is that he doesn't play with like that nasty streak. Just as happy to see that on tape and also. Talk about his hand punch by punch with a purpose. I interest kindest and its hands out there and you can buy out more about that. And I cages he kind of just places and instead of finally. Using his hand. I was always someone you as well you know I like. Binge was my strongest left. I always had a lot of upper body strength in the weight room. But I but I had troubles sometimes translating that punched to added to the feel like I can never get as consistent. As I want you your guys described as having heavy hands and like I played the guy rock. Medicare trucks full name now but he was weak is held the way Christian. I'm talking like at the same time that world rapid Alley 315. These two could barely do 275 and on the field. For whatever reason. He would Stonewall guys I mean he just had the technique down so it is one of those things and this kind of goes we'll Charles Bentley was talking about a couple Fridays ago. On pins in the pro with a us. Is that everybody always to go like oh just get stronger determine waived this and that is not always about weight room changes your muscular strength it's about. Learning that technique or disciplining yourself to be able to heal effectively use that strength. Or when we get back mark in Portland and you QF 5042601870. I'll talk to you about what you think about this weekend's matchup between the saints and the giants is double coverage and they're going to be LE a map and a dot com. Checks. I don't have jet to purposely trying to make me act that president often tonight. They refusal rate marshall's way in the union audience on that said. And at least we are back. But at the jets score Matt Forte he's having. Its own port today. So for 64 yards two touchdowns and I'll Forte and easier. But jets now there may be extra point which they did. 27 to 24 watts went weird. We'll leave. It there game port. A vote luxury market Portland in each legal on. Markets meanwhile the program. Chill in the east or is it shows Earl reaches pretty. Acts like he's watching games. Yeah I would I did that that hockey practice or an equal Beaulieu. And I know I don't that was my game. Margaret I called Christian do you really love hockey is it's true and I played hockey. Played hockey. West won't ignore. Applicable. I. Well argue he argue you brought out layer of Christian. Did not even exist like onion. What happened mark he wanted to be one of the story so we were stationed at my that was the east and West Point. Everybody out there in and that and that area like baseball as popular football was but hockey was the deal is if you didn't skate. If you were a nerd like you know if you could give out so. So basically. There was a rank on base of my mother would drop me off every morning there in the song or. At the at the rate on base in an art which you go to work should drop me off and no way I'd sit there all day I taught myself how to ski and I went out. Tryout for the school hockey team next year that that that fall may legally. Like you were good read. And in Canada and light and college. All right well markets Austin and hockey is always a sport that. I wish I always had a lot of interest in it was a big avalanche game grownup when they have like of course for writers like. Patrick raw Peter Forsberg Rob Blake in company. Yeah I always had Qaeda day dreams of plane defeats. Played in an hockey I would like to a put some people up against boards. I wanted to be the first new millenium and the NHL course that didn't happen but. But that was my goal. Hey look man. Lofty aspirations is nothing wrong with a yeah but OK mark so what what what would you Iran would sing. It ain't. About you just took my right to it and you have one when did you cause that that. He became a minister elect called like that and that's not about money iPods get. I didn't want to talk about. You know Anthony Perkins and now beaten up there on the India at bat and I wouldn't let them as the probably. Hey. I don't Tennessee. And it. You know any movement our guys the American marriage ministries. It's an upstanding org is pitched. Yeah. Art Brooklyn. Are martz would you guys say. It kind of looked and the other day you know. Alive and in a big crater and write about how old patient. Up you know and that was. And you know. If you just went flat yesterday in the last five years. It took him. Being a saint banner held out of that. You know you'd read. That. Need. Where is that crop that in terms. It. Its property and in the lead. You know by year. I mean as being fair jump right in Graco. That. But. He has got to keep his nose out of player personnel. Decision. You know I don't think you'd be a lot about dignity of human being shot that want and that's probably true light. So does this. You're so. Shocked and hopefully. It's. I really stinky bad at this and let someone else make these decisions and I'm gonna live. It is. You know believe that these last few years have been at that and then when it. I did they they have bitten mark in and look whatever you know weigh in in this in this time in this country we have. A ton of people talking about how terrible it is there got to America great again. Hell is the make New Orleans great make the front office great game Christian where is that. Movement because you know mark's right this is politics and this was the state of the saints is a terrible state of the saints dress. Where you have to get up and explain your constituents. Why over the past five years you've had the least amount a draft picks in the lead you've hit on nearly the lowest amount of pigs again the least amount. Acting Gibson it you're not thirty sec you like thirtieth. In percentage of players still under eighteen from those drafts. Yen you have 9%. More in dead money than any other team elite. Details. Jeff Ireland to mark's point though Jeff Ireland was the guy has brought in the piece that. That personnel dial all he he organizes and does the drafting. The college college players that are planetary fun nose on the pro side. They've missed on both put. Our share with the got to get a break Porsche with the attacks along these lines this very conversation. I exchange at my dad and eat just texted me out of the blue I'll watch with the because it's not that I don't I don't think he's the only one thinking this right I'll share. Our there yeah. It's called little. K dog special man that was created all the to break take it to ever. LA MF deduct job. With opera. You know what you're saying no way you go back to your Russian accent. Yeah you like I had dale ultimately have a segment. Roomful Wednesday with two couples evolves over. And so. Well OK I just realized how far this Thursday night stream is behind on Twitter to him. Again jokes all that interception you talked about late for the commercial break. Are you train dogs who you blood teased us rep for the breaker who would you guess that. I bet text me time to call for a Sean Payton fire how hard packed house life. Okay dad can buy it you don't what that he's he's gonna have that he's like he's he's the one that he loves calling for people's heads and he's going to be he he wants to beat everybody to the punt cities like. Eight if he tries that the it'll be yet this week ago he call for shopping head. He writes for us he writes for first he doesn't. Yeah money is being. Exactly so our back has that about it 01 like it's early eighties it. But he wrote that I think a pretty fair point. Witches yap I don't think he's the guy and it's ultimately get it fixed he's not this which it utterances are here. And if that is the case that you believe I see his point. I was like OK if you think that Sean Payton is not going if you have a confident that something is going to be able to be the one to pull you out of this with a combination of the Q this. Maybe starting. I was talking to he'll man about this yesterday in house can realign our troubled nights you'll a lot of fans. A law. Fans were saying that something's agreed all the cornered that Geneva bullet obviously debts to. He want ice who bought I think what you cain's. Is that Sean Payton is a great off the court very good head coach. But he very bad personnel scout. Right at least here in the last half decade at least here in the last five years he's been a very bad personals but. Just like we talked to yesterday Q are these questions of job security. For Peyton. It's what you think it's UH it it's like your old said don't waste your breath. And even outside of Loomis in the picture he just an extension is just like win Ellis you signed last smiles today. Crazy by addicts into my guess now four years ago and at that comments and you'll be your coach to at least twenty team might soon. You ready for now I couldn't have been wronged by a couple of years but one year into a four year extension of the highest paid the league. It's. If you aren't in Utah wasted your. Are coming up next targeting you show on in that we got up at six get fancy studs duds or talk with incredible deal that Twitter struck.
