Good Sunday morning welcoming to first take here on WWL eleven dot com Steve court former saint office back in new world I'm. Kristian garic appear in MetLife stadium in the metal in New York City or at least actually. Majors. And doesn't appear via exactly how are you Steve and you're from week to that I'm. Yes I gotta get distaste on amount that. Last week just did not sit well with me whatsoever and and introduce a world anybody else. Yet it that that 22 points in twelve minutes that bothers me. Yeah a loving. And I understand why would volley but what. Led to it again I guess is this is the the next question asked why did that happen. Well look I mean one team began to the you know sort of hit the gas and we didn't respond real well defensively and that's that's really the only way that you can you know you can put it. You'll love I'll say this offensively. I think like everybody else think you're expected him not to be quite as sharp as they were they played pretty well they really did mean it was it was nice to see that and I think. You know the fact that you put you know you've got. A guy like Jahri Evans coming back you know we're certainly helps that situation but that that look that wasn't that was the reason. It's certainly helped. I think that cohesiveness these sort of became. Much more evident. You know last Sunday that they did did that we realized and it was good to see that I think too little time to do some things and and I think that. Stuff was just a little bit career more and more crisp in along and offered to front so I think about it a lot to do it. Steve court Christian Derek here on first take phone lines open at 50 fortunes and so 1870 week two the two world Saints are here in New York battling the Giants the Giants team that. The Dallas Dallas Cowboys in week one they've revamped their defense rebuilt their defense in particular along the he fits that line this offseason will break down the saints' opponent. And the New York Giants who also have our fantasy frenzy with Scott Smith. Later on this hour ago in the entrances all kinds of good stuff coming your way and let's get colon drove what do you like and dislike about this matchup of the new world Saints. In New York Giants at 50426018786870. Eights having well Steve as as a player you know certainly when the states that the amount that you mentioned. But it seemed like in I would like to. Gauge the mood of the locker room in this week in and out quicker than they they can digest. A loss like that that is it is difficult than that it's this wallet 3534. Point Lawson. Hats off to the Raiders because look. They with Ford on on. Two point conversion could have backfired drastically in that Jack Del Rio could have come under a lot of criticism for that but however. This week and locker room I got a sense that ain't the big did get over pretty quickly which is a positive thing I think the youth on this team. I helped them to do so does that make sense. Well you know they make sense but I did have I think really what you have to look at it is you have to have a little bit of a short memory in because we do week. Look at your thinking at all about last week and what happened then then you're you're not focused in the right spot so you need to keep your eyes. You know from a focused on what's happened Tuesday in New York Giants forget about Oakland what happened there. You know like anything else you'd be you go into you know following reason you know after the game and and these are trying to correct what happened. You know the game one not what happened you know him what happened in a while the reasons that you lost that game you know when you try to correct those bit. First and foremost you got to forget about it you know you get a new opponent that incessantly do about right now so it is good that they have that resilience and sisco which you tell me. But again we'll see how well they play today look on the road for the first time. This season that's going to be a little bit different you know against a team it's pretty prolific you know as far as score points. It's it's going to be a track meet. Yeah that field as well a particular. Point half point spread for the New York Giants are favored over the world states I don't know if I would necessarily. Think it penalties can be at that point I think it's bigger than you think that his game as the he has a little concerned because when I saw last week in the pace this game that we played that I think the offense can keep up but I just want that Saints defense going. Fumble in the fourth down a fourth quarter meltdown. From last week seeking recovery and beat the New York tonight they look for their first win their first road win. Of the season today in MetLife stadium he steep for a crushing Garrett its first take he going to be able will go into the trenches next welcome back 878 simulate sex line. Says maybe the ref Brees will call the game. This scheme that is going to be fair for both teams going back to last week when. At past records caller crank Robertson was a bit of sore spot with the fans that certainly. The team as well however that didn't lose you the football game last week ultimately. The court Christie Garrett here on first take colon threw open it vital importance of so whites of which chuckle about it. It's an important. Piece that didn't help with that didn't it didn't help your your right but that's not what lost the game and as much as that's frustrating is it to see it. It's not lost no of course not. So in the trenches here as we look back to last week the Saints Dolphins allies the court with the that they look at film. Bill great every offensive lineman as he does and it's aligned where did have you felt like come check it out for the game sort but. Each week does that any previews the saint next opponents lets start there. Steve swisher is a dollar delightful week ago against the Oakland Raiders they held up pretty well. Bother me tea and that was not against. Looked at that's a salty front seven that Oakland has so I was I was this was a good test for them and the fact that they came out really looking pretty well to be really sort of say this. This offensive line is playing just a little bit better than and the first the ball that I anticipated. Look our left tackle is number 52 that they have been actually a Mac is a guy that can just absolutely recchi have to game plan for the guy. And when he was against Toronto arms their left tackle he disappeared. And he did absolutely nothing he was not a factor in the game and that. Look I think he uncle Max a guy that's that's like a Von Miller except I think he's a little bit better on the run seriously so. That to me was was huge. You know the fact we controlled their inside guys pretty well for the most part that really helped with. You know Unger and and and to our region a great job of of a blocking up to two inside guys that. You know by and large we blocked them up pretty well and wasn't bad and they certainly gave Drew Brees enough time. Had to do we had to do and excuse to stuff that he knows that I do best. Steve we get a lot of texts and calls about Zach Strief and now. He's he's not in the year Renault mark it with a really. There really brutal fans there are saying that he's gonna get the need to move on from moments that era this what he's yet they have last week. You know look I can take a look at any and I'm sure he'll admit he is well look it's. He's get a little long ensues there's no question but it. Would take us some flexibility and and you know some things like that but you sort of make up for with experience and he's done a great job of that. The past couple years look there's things that happened out there. That you can directly go back and sell you know that that pressure came from the right side there and so that must be Strief and and a lot of times you know in in little in fairness sometimes it is but but look there's those guys get paid to lean on the other side but. But nevertheless. He is a good right tackle. Is you gray right tackle no you where at some point here you know probably pretty quickly. You know we're gonna have to have some you know a younger guy coming there and take over but as it goes right now. The things that he's Dylan esque experience wise is helping us and and he is not. The reason we're getting kind of pressures there or losing any kind of games and I and a. Overcast. Skies here at MetLife stadium they drop the rain chances down about 430 or 40% so looks that we might feel a state drive the ball game. For the seat and Giants new kick off right here on seat radio W de mil well look ahead. Steve Q the defense the line in the match ups in the differences today with the world's New York Giants Jason Pierre Paul Olivier Vernon. I mean it's the eighth that a lot of money this offseason drama about a hundred million dollars on the defense that's not a football. The that they doled out creates either revamp that defense that we saw last year in the superdome. In that particular 49 shoot out at saint and a winner and in the Giants were right up there with a saint terms of overall defense a year ago. This looks to be a bit better while a lot better for the the New York chart. Yeah you know it it appears to be soul but we really haven't. We haven't seen yet you know and I think if you look at just a case of them Jason you know Peter Paul and and what sort of happened and was. Basically losing his hand. You know he's certainly not the Jason peer all that bit that we feared you know on the one that you felt like it was gonna really be a guy that you're gonna have to game plan around four. You know like Charles Daly type situation he's not a guy. Tom is coming back yet he's coming back he's still dangerous and and he's still a guy that you have to you know be very careful of you know they the predominately had you know four man front. But I can tell you that. They're very likeable guys there's not like there's guys up there right now that are just totally dominant and and they're gonna commit their breakers I think if you look at you know you and I think it actually. Oakland had a better front seven and I think in energized us. So that makes me feel pretty good providing effective you know we get on it and and we stay on it and and we use technique that we were supposed to win. Yeah we do all the things we're supposed to do little things you do little things and offensive line in the big things take your themselves. The problem is though they really stop there I think it really good rushing attack for a week ago and it is the Dallas Cowboys in a really good offensive line and maybe perhaps one of the best football. And now Cowboys what I cowboys' offensive line and they held them pretty well check in the running this it's already don't run the ball enough or effectively enough so that could that could be an issue today could get one dimensional against the Giants team that that the pass rush is gonna be even more effect but. To me and I if I still go across the board I still think Dallas you know has the best offensive line if you you know just in the five best guys together at this point. But when you look down play in the Giants it was. Look the Giants did a good job against him there's no question but I still think that being the first game. You don't really know which have yet and I don't think Dallas was really kind of hit on all cylinders. And again to be fair I don't think you know I don't think the giants' defense was in on all cylinders they did do a good job you get a rookie running back. You know you don't have a quarterback that the has it that you thought you had. He keeps break in the east extremely fragile as a matter was with Tony but. But they've got to get that rectified but nevertheless looked into actress got get a good job for rookie coming in and and and you know shall thinks he can do. You know offensively he's going to be I think someone that it's going to be some of the deal was in the future he sort of has that. Kind of reminds me a little bit Russell Wilson and that's. That'll pose a problem for the guys in the NFC east for awhile but. But look I think getting back and get a little on the Weezer but I think did that really this it's going to be a better test for us today just the fact I wanna see how we respond on the road. And if we can do some things. Today you know they say it went up there. That's good to me because I'm just saying in that you know we don't need anything else to be thrown away at this point it could. But in but nevertheless I would like to see us establish a ground game against these guys enough I think you do that. That just puts those guys on their heels and they really can't do the things that they they feel like they can do the best you know it is and that's Morris rush the passer so. You know drew are on have a good day today. Yeah look eat you gotta help your defense though a defense that's going to be without dealt in broad in the secondary you're facing O'Dell Beckham junior Victor Cruz. Whose back up their like 500 days of not play in the guess sterling Shepard Eli Manning you know you know the office of weapons but yeah I think you hope your defense keep him off the field. By establishing that running game studies even more Paramount. This week to maybe it was last. Well look I can tell you this that they're Rashad Jennings. He's not a real well known guy. But but he can flat get it done that's big back can get it done and and then you kind of got the of their version of Theo Riddick in and Shane Vereen and the things that he can do he's been around for a long time and many different clubs in. In an unlikely run the football that catches a ball so well out of the backfield you know that's that's one thing and then. The near the re emergence of Victor Cruz who hasn't played football a couple of years and he start he looked a little bit like the old Victor Cruz last week but global CP can sustain that so. They look they've got some weapons there's no question. Eli Manning to me is one of those guys that. For some reason that people don't think he's as good as he has been he has always been so solid things that he does in some times he throws a lot of interceptions and one not but looked. Look at guys that guy's dangerous and he can throw around we all know that so he he he you can give him any kind of passed for that. Do you think to say to giants' game will be a close one cast your vote operate at work people online at WWL outcome right now. Those voting in our polls say 67% say no 33% say yes I'm guessing that they feel like you'd be more clout in the Giants direction it would. For the new policy like I've mentioned before half point spread the Giants are favorite over the world Saints and I'd be comfortable honestly Steve if that's where it was like six and a half seven point that's gonna that that kind of game actually it's going to be moved you know well. You look I'm glad I'm out of morals Las Vegas guys just figure that kind of stuff out but. But I can tell you by looking that I I really don't think it is I think it's if the Saints come out and and excuse the way they did last week. As prolific as they were. Looked at it we get us we got to stay we gotta keep the drives alive there's no question and we got to sustain a little bit better running game and as far as. I was pretty happy the way they threw the ball around in and as prolific as well as drew was. You know we game. If we can somehow get a turnover maybe score on defense that that's really gonna help in his especially on the road so. Defense has got to step up to switch to absolutely have to there's no way in the world that we can. Maintaining any kind of any kind of momentum whatsoever. You know if we don't if we don't establish something defensively to where we can get off the fields me on third down that that's critical. Ironically that Giants Tennessee's defense no turnovers no sacks in week one they're both looking for their first sack in their first turnover all right fantasy frenzy after the news outlets here on first thing that we did well in doc are welcome back on the go. Fantasy friends a year future I'd know then out Scott Smith wrote of his dot com also coveted mil com fantasy expert joining us right now and a Scot did last week he had some good advice will be some more advice for fantasy owners. In a week who's got that but for the time it. Drawn out. Now lot mitigated this the first bigotry of the year happened last week in week one Keenan Allen for the Chargers going down for the year with a ACL injury how does that impact the Chargers. Off. Well what the article and in particular it's not doable Antonio Gates who actually most organ tightened in the red zone in 2015 I think it's it is. It is. He's reviewed the Saints. Damon who won a trivia to look at it he's actually Gunner like without Q now on and on its seventy point increase by about two per game. And Philip Rivers has had a big drop off without Keenan Allen with Keenan Allen last year he of that in 7% completions 344. Or spur game. Without you know ever 62% completion with 250. Or are. You really outlook is that in the person really gonna kick a little bit of jump on results sent to the beats you don't want a lot receivers and turn it into. Tennessee friendly are frenzy fins frenzy that excuse me Scott Smith wrote of his dot com Scott Smith sixth and on Twitter and point fifteen Scott Saints Giants 101 point to particular 49 shootout for the new world saints' favor in the easier repeat here we too. What this does that size game that we sort of implies poll which vague Q looking at over two to four points umps to become in view of the visits lie and actually opened up five it was too dark Serb and they and it's actually close to about three and a half so did the things are going to be as much dog little Lotta people might think unit last year and then you have read and annualized commitment hole for 850 yards and thirteen touch -- that highly unlikely that. UT that again we talked about it last week with distinct defense and I just don't think they do enough and all season so outgoing and sport all sides players that play happened. The big match of that I'm looking forward to in the saint it would mean so he can do last week yeah actually lead and we will point eight. Your program and wide receiver and he's going to be matched up against a rookie you are apples for the Giants out of the slot. Really liked that matchup wouldn't I would go head start on the Action League and Daniel on. Steve you got any questions for Scott ware. You know what. That this is always so fun to me. A guy I've played this game all the time and and its it's fun because he can keep you interested in the different if it completely different part of it you know it's not. So much analysis part of it to me anyway it's more Aggies haven't thought of it but. My watch games or watch him you know in line of scrimmage so it's kind of fun watch in this but. My girlfriend always picks the best quarterback that's what it. I can never had to do that can't win that one so. And I don't know what's going along with Gradkowski all of these discretion they are not weird thing. Yeah about two and missed the date last week I felt in it as well from a sleeper but he ended up that plated the facto tackle. We've done with New England tackle been out the game Tuesday gonna block a lot so. I'd be on the lookout for more so do that this week in and pay attention to a struggling and so left tackle Libya the union if you the and draw more so than it bounces. The statement hopeless task in. And Pitt are fantasy frenzy here on first take with Scott Smith Scott Smith sixty him on Twitter wrote of his dot com also does some good stuff. On line for us it WL luck on your fantasy advice throughout the week. A few games. Adrian Peterson Dovonte Freeman Todd early kind of disappointed in week one who are the big games you should caution argue would caution people about starting this week's got. Well we talked in August on on double coverage and artistry and wondered about one devote you know books I mean last year you look at his production and a lot of it came between reached the green's sentence. Where he was on a morsel for a decision future. And I that it didn't happen and you know that is the talk all all Q and at temple moved to get more involved in saw that we want. Don't want to remain at 72%. Of pendulum back snaps last year in 2016. In week one he only has just beside him with actually outscored an out produce but certain Coleman. So that's. Really the course is about if you can unload and the tree died there and you reached. Other Q do you keep in our own is does now does Ryan. Without Tony Romo has. You have beaten not the person that's and so he normally does he only averages about 3.5 receptions and 46 or without Romo. Last week the start Antonio Brown absolutely scorched the shop regrets in it's probably going to be the same matchup. That you can keep this week against the Cowboys. And I don't think that the caliber quite as bad cornerback is what you look last week so I would be on the lookout Q does Bryant is. Can do he has another back in it. It's something you might and so we're going forward. Scott it is sleeper offer quarterback run of that why receivers tight end today. I don't go in back Cleveland off and patients who are actually ranked last in the league in week one like him complete to execute passes and so in the last. But I Olympic Games. Actually launching greens nicely played against the saint the last on the net court eager non that you would secure in the first round. Jenna looked me and sort blockers either one of brilliance and Indianapolis defense that's missing their top cornerback. And and also you know the Bears promised a little bit banged up so like you know. And at tight and Greg Walker last year Detroit Lions do that those two points to tie them. And in week one they gave seven. And target for eighty or three touchdowns. Tackle Dwayne Allen to. He's a guy like in just super one more in the and four receiver no additional action has averaged over fourteen standards certain point we're in an electric contest against the tout wars. Scott Smith at Scott Smith sixth in on what are fancy frenzy. Here on first take on his work at WL dot com itself Scott placement metrics are. I'd either units are steadily coming back for Tony in Australia it's first week here on WW Oakland heart Rolex. Time I checked three hours thirteen minutes to pick off three hours thirteen minutes the Saints and Giants meet. At MetLife stadium in week two on Christian are appear at that left at MetLife stadium. The court back in new worlds to the folds we go to Tony in Australia you're on W analyst volatility. Yeah I could construe. My momma. Elected concerns Torre won his wins the giants' defense know why I pushed. The Cowboys which. Pushed it factors that are possible on the strategic. LL I want to Puerto released and not keep them and try to control and the other concern use their secondary. Candle in crucial and I'd go back and. Well I gonna look I don't agree I can agree on that sore secondary goes look we've got you know our best guy you know. Arguably is is mic now so. Look see those guys pose some problems for everybody and an effective. Yeah indeed especially Beckham scares me dead I mean he is a big play guy and there's no question about him. You know he get it done a couple of years ago Victor Cruz was was to diversion of view you know what he was doing. Minister interprets come on to where you know he's really in the number two guy there at this point and and looks to be in the future but. The look coming out of the backfield Shane Vereen is a guy that. If he can curia. He nurtured that pretty quick you know because of his ball catching ability. You know and not only that but his running skills so. We've got a handful they go on offensive weapons. I'm not too concerned about their tight ends at this point but look at as a mean and Don almost guy's game getting going here. Sterling Moore he was inactive last week at new addition for the black gold that secondary I would expect that he will be active this week with. Double broke going down today brokered the deal last week in. DJ Williams. Came crawling into bunting Harris yeah welcome to the NFL is what you get week in and week out. Young players and look I think by a large Steve both of those guys are all three of those guys played fairly well last minute would you agree that. Well no there's no question and they just they don't have enough. They don't have any reps and moved on their belt you know they just really haven't seen. Auburn Tennessee and and be able to just you know two different types of players because it is the first time they're gonna see. You know although Beckham or you know chain for Rainer. You know sterling Shepard that this is this is going to be there's an education each and every week. When you can watch as much film as you want to. But these guys haven't even watched enough film yet to really be able to digest what's going to be happening to salute the best thing we can do is to them is is really sort of see if we give Eli off spot. Get him rattled and and no maybe about some balls down but get him moving around that's going to be the the thing that's gonna help us the most to see if we can put some pressure on and you know rhythm tough got to do that he's been around for a long time he's got two Super Bowl residual force so. If that's going to be tested defensively. Your thoughts your take on the seat and Giants they would as concerned would you feel good about 504260187868787. I'm Christie Garrett he's the court it's been its first week here on WW did you set for week two NFL action the seats in Giants today at MetLife stadium welcome back to first takes the court that -- -- on -- or appears in the meadowlands and Stevie completed breakdown in particular were talking about the secondary last segment but you know here Byrd also wrote our furlough came a RO UN that at some point you start to see some of these. Receipt he looks it hurt so much it's also much of dirt rake in I can't help but wonder if you're gonna see those the day. Well you know look I don't know exactly what kind of formations as I can I can anticipate would would New York to do. And so I would imagine they would be trying to do the same thing is trying to anticipate what they're gonna do they only have really one. Think when games' worth of tape and it's a pre season stuff which nobody shows anything anyway but it. But they have last year they can look at last year and has vacancies and they can decide if it's going to be something that they're gonna follow the same time protocol they have. Look I would suspect that they're going to be mean they're going to be in nickel and dime a lot there's no question because that's what they do this to be best throws the ball around so. Yet they're going to be I think the younger guys and be pushed into service pretty quickly Christian. The 5042601870. Tech's 878 Seve it's game day for the black and gold. We feel that's more easily. Just by females we feel like it's going to be oh win for the world seats against the Giants they would be. Three and a half four point underdogs today in MetLife stadium mean cast your vote also operate at work people online at W could well come. You beat the Saints and Giants will be a close game today 67% of those voting on line. W who all accounts they know you'll not be. In favor of the New York Giants. The cast your vote there or calls once again at 5042601870. Tech's 87870 and Steve another. Partly we've talked about last week was will lots I was so as heartbreaking loss had an opportunity to get 61 yard field goal in but he had the late. And that is why I you know him well gonna go down that again today that. Yeah well although it didn't always do it seems like I mean they I don't know it seems like this league each and every year it's decided in the last. One or two possessions of the fourth quarter it seems like an and and look at the way you want you wanted to be entertaining like that it certainly is. You'd like to have a little bit more comfortable leave we would have to get me relying your kicker little time to bail you out but. But nevertheless if that's what you have to do. It be nice to know that you got a guy who at least can kick it sixty yards and he certainly can. He's not as actors like we do but somebody he's a young guy and we'll see if he's if he's got some two and I'm sure there's lot of guys and even met him yet. You know we use that particular Obama pick who was this guy but so yeah it's it's unusual but but nevertheless I think he did heavily toward which used to me was like day. It's nice to have a million other guy that has that legs. One down and wanna go here on first take one more hour on the one hand things off to the Bud Light count on the kick off with a cajun cannon Bobby Hebert and beat chief Deke Bellavia keep your radio lock right here on Saints radio W that dwelling about the daka.
