And the red hot Green Bay Packers who closed out the season with 6 straight victories certainly am vote for vehicles that meet for it it's the mean nasty but the giants. Last month of the season at defense has been something else of course it Eli in the post season. He is never knows that kind of a quarterback when he gets into terms that but it could gain in the fun game to watch. Also recap some of the seats move from this week that fire five coaches among those five coaches that are let go by Sean Payton. Bill Johnson joked and Greg and Stan Kwan as well Patrick Willis. She's not Patrick Goss but in those three in in particular. Weren't significant shake ups and Joseph bit deport them 06 that there's only one remaining now that 06 originals that asked Pete Carmichael junior. You kind of solve a Greg man firing coming we brought in Kevin a day during the middle of the season. We it's only special teams issues that in all likelihood cost at least two games this year. Perhaps make the arm from war. But you sought out it was a bit of surprise and we want to do this in Bill Johnson I think they'll Johnson. Even more so it just because. He developed I think Cameron Jordan. It Sheldon reckons there nick fairly hectic year. However the sack totals were down and it's about production this puts everybody on notice now for 2017. It's pretty much make or break. It's very clear for the saint point seven. No longer wool on the coaches that peeled say though an X more changes on the coatings that will be at the top. The changes let me if they go 79 again next year. Of course the reports and rumors last week about. Saints coach Sean Payton. Reportedly have an interest in. Going to Los Angeles he put those rests on I don't go to shows saying yes four years left on his contract he plans on it. He he's going to be here it only seventeen so all that has been put the rest but we'll also recap. That's sweet sixteen seasons where did the saints come up short. Alchemy make a run back the playoffs and point seventeen how close are they complain but apps in this weekend. A year ago while part weaken the and operatives networking long lines for it W Lola com. Which place a futures bet in Vegas at the saints who make the playoffs next season your choices yes no or not even with somebody else's money right now. Results look into the results in cash a little line that beat him Lola com or call me at 504260187. 36% saying not even with someone else's money point four insisting though 40% saying yes the scenes. New place a bet a featured it in lost date for the saints to make the post season next year and look at it with a I'm not a gambling guy. But I said it. Senator earlier on this seat her clothes. You know short again you know close doesn't amount and often there's no consolation prize in the NFL however. I think the saints have an opportunity that the post season action at some money it's been in free agency that could be good or bad and you look at it. Draft the last year's been pretty solid the year before okay. So that's nice piece to build around on defense and now with Tuesday that the changes. Particular. The linebackers coach the line coach. They have an opportunity retool their staff maybe the message got lost at times for the most players so new voice could Rian reinvigorate reenergize that group and get better production from the south. But I'll it's a yes I would be willing to. Please futures today. The saints may return to playoffs next year Poland to open a 5042 so when he said the text 878 in the coming up. What was with Jim Anderson problem earlier in the week in his thoughts on the saints' coaching staff shake up. It's just sports your WWL in government aka sports it's just sports here on W democracy Garrick you know on the Sunday morning col Ber glad it's the new woman up. Tomorrow polite to open a 5042601870. Text 8787 saints taking up the coaching staff this week GO bit out. Bill Johnson out great man out Stan Kwan out. With a right changes made you my thoughts and few moments but caught up with the voice of the State's Jim Anderson on the heels of those firings in. Here's Jim's take. I'll go and so in the news coming out today it. Saints have fired five assistant coaches among them Joseph Witt the assistant head coach and linebackers coach alone Gregory Mann the special teams coordinator and defensive line coach. Bill Johnson what's your initial reaction to this news. Well I guess what surprised because for the most part the staff has been pretty much intact we've shown they know going changed defensive coordinators a couple of times. But I think this is representative of the fact that the defense and special teams have not played well. Most recently this past year and even before that. In a while the offense has so I mean if you look at the three. Elements of the football team in the off and system when it should do. The defense hasn't and the special teams haven't so I guess that's where the the change change should occur there to occur. But I'm sad too also for the people that you get to know in the course of the time spent wisdom and Bill Jones was a very good friend of the guys on family I hate to see him go Gregory Mann was very popular vote people who covered the team because. He's from the YouTube and actually being nice to you. And yeah I think that drew back. So I guess. I'll miss him and in them but that's the nature of the beast in the NFL and they all live when that they all know that that's the reality of it and reality bites sometimes. Jimmy Jimmy out if you could so he gets so much instability on this roster over the last couple years now this is significant coaching change. Does this make you concerned about how quickly they can assemble another coaching staff it's basically going to be a brand new staff and a lot of in a lot of ways a does that. Does that instability concern you at all in the coaching staff. Well maybe to a degree but I think for the most part I mean ten years is on time here at the same voices. And this is I mean this is longer than shelf life of most. Coaching staffs in the NFL especially ones that haven't won. And for three straight years so. This is this is the reality this is the reality of being. An assistant coach in the NFL they all live with a you know note to part of it. And now. It's a good thing is what Olympian 67 openings around the NFL they'll all be assembling new stats. And this is the way it goes you try to make contacts you have networking and you hope to be a part of a new aggregation and perhaps ride that like the saints did. To a Super Bowl and there's just a part of the deal. It's not pleasant but it's a part of the deal. Voice of the saints Jim Henderson here on double coverage W the two hour and Jim. We'll go back to Joseph Nvidia's been around in the NFL for over three decades as a part of John king's original staff I'm sure it was tough on something there to release the news to him but. Keith do you buy into the notion. That his inability to really developed young linebackers and talking about guys like. Carry forward Martell is Wilson and recently stepped on Anthony that inability to develop those younger players may be led to some of us. I would think so I mean you can. Ignore the facts and those are backs. But this is a considerably or you know he's the guy that always pitch on things bidding. I got there really personally enjoyed. Getting a chance to talk with him away from a the football field. This is the guy who has never spent one day coaching outside India and myself which is pretty remarkable. And so I was like Joseph and outside gel even when he took over for Shaun during the bounty. Gate suspension. Alice thought he enjoyed the repartee he always said he didn't go and enjoy the repartee with the with the press because it kind of challenged him mentally always liked his take on things in his perspective on things. And this had to be very hard and show on because this was the guy that truly was his right hand man and had been so from the very beginning. I'm gonna miss on draft day when he usually takes his shots at me when you set up that. That's about that's probably good on this most of all I mean. Is taken your fashion statement or question mark whatever was. During on draft day. But I just I just look instantly you learn. It is ironic take on things and he'd seen at all. And but you know what it's a long run. To be here since 2006. To them through all of that. And survived. And now the transition takes place and usually this is what happens when you get a head coach is embattled. The staff goes. And then coordinators go to that you go so. I think for the most part. Saints fans. Even though they don't know these people personally will be applauded with the fact that it's match status code in monger. Jim finally for alleged Iran do you think you and all that this might have been and or a directive from perhaps the general manager or owner which is hey you gotta make some changes I think Shawn Payne decided this on zone. I would might do in this would be totally guess so that they can be examination. But more so show on impetus cement. The only thing that really can engender. Optimism. Is usually change. And if you're back and changed head coach and now apparently they aren't that's fine with me is and I could change at coach and you need to change people under them. Two engenders some sort of optimism among the fan base otherwise they have no reason to come back and say yeah I'd like. To buy my season tickets again for a third straight subpar and not buckle to. The voice of the same Jim Henderson also Donna's always mallet to run thanks appreciate the visit parent or Kotnik hi I'm Rhonda. They're goes voices say Jim Anderson look I think he's on the money right there particularly says. You know that coordinators go assist Disco and eventually make coach goes and looks. I asked him about the decision how they ultimately rises this decision this is the nothing out loud here. I think that at some point this came from you know judgment curriculum as a perhaps ownership where. Eight you gotta make some sort changes and it does point the thirst. Blood from the fan base it does give you re kind of reinvigorate a little hope that. Like Tuesday it's not status quo on airline drive there not to stay happy they understand the expectations that. A 79 not are not acceptable the results of seven should there not acceptable and the expectations are much higher obviously they nature but the staff. I think is needed. You know the one that I question like I mentioned at the onset. Is Bill Johnson I don't know that that was necessarily. One that that I would've made. But looking at a if you look at the numbers to bottom line this lesson that the sack totals were there. That's what happens now as far as Joseph bit. You know that the the longstanding criticism for you bit had been Willy can't develop young linebackers and while that may be true. T Obama or rob a point which is true with what you mean who has developed likes of Karrie for Marcus Wilson. Stephon if they can get step back this year beckons it well that bode well for coaching staff and for. A position coach like Joseph the bomb. You know when he win when you don't develop a young player like that funny things that first round draft pick the most successful linebackers. Under his tenure as the saints linebacker coach have been better players are guys like Scott Fujita Jon Vilma. Thought our guys like Scott Shanle as well Craig Robertson had some success this year and LL be was already developed before he arrived in New Orleans and I think that the staff changes were needed IAM a little concerned about how much how young this roster is now you also. Trying to infuse into coaching staff or at least you know parts of a new coaching staff polity that is not a football and I wonder. How much transition that's going to take his or is that going to be a bit I don't wanna see it issue but. How what how long that's gonna take ultimately. Come together text message here 8787. Aces. 48 point forces Christian. Body off dimensions and desire that the saints rank in the middle of the pack defensively to compliment the offense as a path to success could you maybe discuss what it would take for the various fiscal parameters slash categories. To improve the saints Tuesday sixteenth from 27 overall condom. An average of thumbnail discussion would give fans a perspective on just how far this team that's to improve the question. Forty to report look when when Bobby says and it's not just obvious that in funny everybody that that follows his team would would agree with those sentiments that. Look at the saint Pete and middle pack because there are offenses so explosive but if you give Drew Brees. A few more positions a year. You get more turnovers look at the 2009 defense the defense wasn't. Top ten statistically in terms of overall defense or passing defense run defense. They need to they were opportunistic and that's kind of in the formula for the saints when it had successes that defense that. Second they can turn a ball over you Drew Brees that I've played offense a couple more possessions. Com. You know per year in and perhaps we get one per game or one every other game. An extra possessions to a turnover horse act. Because you know a few sack numbers are up it's almost like he turned over a lot of ways it's that. It's a big play. So I think you know that that's where you look for improvement. Forget about overall defense you aggregate reds of defense you're out of all over the you do that. The National Football League you can be you know. Fifteenth sixteenth in total defense still have a lot of successes but especially if you office like the saints do so that's we talk about that's where. As those facilities were pointing out. Where's the bar set for 4077138. Rockets playoffs he got to get the playoffs he can't go seven and nine occasionally a even knighted Seve only the playoff I think I think that at. That fall short of expectations. In particular three straight 79 years for the last five. You've been you've missed the playoffs. It can't happen. They can happen at once at its playoffs or boss for this versioning. 5042601878. Tech's 878 have now it to more of those taxes well coming up. After news headlines with Don aims here in a few moments. But what if the want to open a 50426018. Semi tech's 878 of which plays a futures bet. On the saints it would be seventeen in Vegas to make the post season he cast your vote operate at our people on line at W Lola come. Or simply open up the phone which Jack on a Sunday morning to 601870 tech's 8787. New style with Donnie here on Debian well enough in the dock excuse me got a CBS news update and then done aims momentarily how painful was it to watch Oakland yesterday. Faulty Houston not because you know. You pull for. The raiders are he'll like Houston what have you but just the fact it just two weeks ago. Derek Karr yet everything rule for is three or four weeks or you're in the running for the number one seed. And there cargoes down. Broken video Matt McCoy goes down a week later you play a wild card game. Against Houston Texans who this number one defense unit felt that brought DOS Waller. As strong with a quarterback for the Texans Sunday as a decent gain an opportunity though Ari almost of the Balkan raiders two times yesterday in a ballgame but. Oakland is high flying offense it had been rookie it's on week one against New Orleans. Their carpet came in the superdome 3534 victory over the states and in the Ali strokes or fourteen point two comic book making his first NFL start the playoffs. And the way to. Make your debut but the raiders faulty Houston 27 of fourteen Seattle beat Detroit when he 66. At 1131. If things off the Westwood one's coverage. Of the Al wild card weekend and in the AFC it's Miami Pittsburgh at noon right here on W ago followed by the New York Giants visiting. The Green Bay Packers a 340 start. Right here on W ago bullet to open at 5042601878. Text 8787 mark wing you know 11 Euro on W it will mark. Christian good mornings are the more. A rent in the paper. Well every year and stats for ought to beat French end up watching the com Atlanta game. Game. Noticing that Atlanta was right next to us and all. And on the field those games were almost opposites. You don't about off that's stats are defense stats. Both. Dale archer are in production prettier they were right next door and a category when law and yet that. But I think because more turnovers and add more Saxony to beat audience they'll sacks so those two those two. Hugely important. Stats that eliminated the saints. You mentioned you mentioned Oakland I mean besides I know it was a strip but were six point two went from having. Three or four more points. But I think beat on a lark using that when it's apartment. I think there's a lot of teams pick a unit that lets me eat it now okay. There are three of four. Six points away from him three or four victories this or the Buffalo Bills were seven Euro Cincinnati Bengals probably. In Annapolis Coles each and every look at the Denver Broncos last year's Super Bowl champion when knighted some issues in a playoff but I'm sure that there's one or two games. Look they could have been 88 as quickly as they have been tense sixth that they lose a game for voluntary mini. He played this game that backing out there with Vietnam or you know 678 teams in the national football. Well but is that is the underground grossed around with the saints getting rid of the underlings who coaches I mean. Which it sort all of us we were pursue somebody and so we're gonna open up a bit so this is back and help getting rid of those guys. I think in the long. I think I think it wealthy can I think ultimately though. What happens for next year's is that the ghosts evident nine there's no longer the out there's no longer the scapegoat that we make changes at the it says the coach level I think you'd think it's Saturday at eight teams at the com. At echo too well at that point because because you're you've you've shaken at the staff so much you change players. So at some point it's going to be. To take coaching positions so and that's that's if they go 79. And I think that that that the maybe there will be very fair with. I know that there were a lot of calls from the fan base this year. A call for Sean Payton you run a town. I it's I think that it would have still been a year to think next year is the right time that you ultimately make a decision. If there's a decision be made their eleven to five it's a moot point but at their they're 7988 again next year. Absolutely and it's all all you want to be worth it. I I think we need to pick apart the defense I mean there are lost puppies so there you you see some of the plays is very involved and they're just the great. They can't do anything because stopped. Anything arms Atlanta and elect like a normal audience it was almost like like football right. The first five times they had the ball they went through no problem at all and there were no votes. Yeah look at first thought that Atlanta offenses. Is similar opposite this I think there in the broadcast by the game but. They reminded me a lot. Two times Watson this year a lot of the 2011. State's office where it is the matter it didn't matter I mean the it would make a lot of defense is lot of really good deep fences. Look bad in a lot of bad defense is look really bad. And that's that that was the saints last Sunday's that they went on defense and Matt Ryan company and I agree Vietnam I don't know that it's. More out of its coaches this listing the players. It lacked a lot I mean let's be honest court Robert Bolton was brought in as a potential team that's going to meet these aren't the middle linebacker. Front and it goes Loomis and sure and injured were disrupting a lot of money used to on the money to evaluate if you'd better tell. I'll open the Dahlia looked mark in the Drew Brees contract situation. Is not something that is hindered its not the reason why the saints are. Talent deficient. In a lot of areas it's not because his contract it's because you miss on a few players and all the sudden. Your big trouble cap wise they telephone call Michael on a cell phone you're on W ago. Area I'd do that quest which. You'd think it would really make on that week that we oh when I knew it back to greet you. Hillary renegotiated object. That Rossi. Earlier oh no. Go on. Shut though or someone to really make it immediate impact. The ball. I. Hi Michael appreciate that phone call for all not that Drew Brees and asked him for a racial auction of its contract in particular when he's got one year left on that deal it's not a lot of money in terms of how it impacts the salary cap you gonna have about 25 neatly back. It is a lot of money it doesn't pack the seller however. That you gonna have money you'll need to use about point five million dollars of cap space issues you're not going to be hurt for money that's the reason why the seat haven't gone out there and gotten shot down quarter are. That that dollar. Pass rusher. It's because a there was guys rarely hit the open market going usually those guys are getting extension of particular. The past tortures but they haven't had any money the last couple years they went from shop at Saks Fifth Avenue. The job at the local. You know local we'll be your call. Whenever he beat the analogy there and had the money they can afford it there on a strict budget. Now this year they're gonna have an opportunity to retool and few pieces they could be like. The New York Giants did this past offseason it's been date on the money itself bought the that very well could happen for the saints this season and they'll be some guys on the on the market that'll be attracted the timing couldn't help them but I'll think. I'm certain they will go in restructured res contract terms of make him take a cutter like that. I think it. If you're targeting players that you might restructured its its cap relief from in my Peter Bergen played well the last nine games but. Is capped at one point three million dollars I think it would law that'll open without ultimately usable. Eating Morgan. So that it question Michael Pulitzer opened a final four to 601870 text 8787 inches sports here on W we got a national change your game tonight are skewed it too long night. Clemson and Alabama rematch a year ago this the matchup cultural often deserved. Two best teams in college football clubs and Alabama and there's a thought that the tigers could. Could give remain engine and pull off an upset victory over Alabama. Tomorrow. He waited 2601870. Taxi to meet you my thoughts later on. Well if he's off to less than 11130.

Atlanta Carolina tempo obviously south. To greet basically Miami Dolphins in London Minnesota. But there all the Americans feel buffalo and Los Angeles. The diskette that's another reason why he might be little more optimistic. Seats could make the post season and next year. I'll list stick around that's playoff team 12345. Playoff teams on the seventies late. But Minnesota buffalo Los Angeles. Chicago. 313 issues at the jets were not very watched it was. 871. Yet Vietnamese people that rely on the patriots game the superdome. Halfway through that for a fourth quarter Bill Belichick operating away quite like it no more seats that day. They it's a pretty cute but it vastly different team in 2000 obviously. This year futures opponents though. Hope they don't go to Green Day it's cool just. Optic read trip it is early September. They've been kind the last couple times the statement that play day. It's been in the first couple weeks of the season but I feel this might be late December. It'll fat snowflakes fall it. Frozen tundra via mean the most part. Buffalo's while he goes there late. She gets cold weather gains on the scenes Slaton schedule Minnesota to build stadiums or Miami. That game in London's O two it's so cold weather games this year for the states in Green Day and the Buffalo Bills. 5042601878687.

On Twitter act and act Kristian garic ski sleaze. Stinky as well but yet it's a sports your Adobe deployment. The ACC finding Virginia Tech illegal holes 2.5 thousand dollars each for the rules and accepting leak pleas from former Wake Forest radio broadcaster Tommy L rod that was the Max out bylaws. Com mr. Johns Wofford they felt it was sufficient now. Think about that. If they took information should just be point 5000 dollar fine and I know Tommy I'll ride should be. He's based upon institute for leaking information in the eyes but. In particular. Bobby Petrino rule would you all put it past him from using the trying to sail we had information weeded uses. Whatever that's what is the same guy and it's about actors incident Arkansas and denied it and why. Constantly about. How his motorcycle accident took place that says later fine now. It was a big. Scam. Fact I think the appointment that's dollars and often it's nothing to Virginia Tech rule. It's not it's not enough that's not sufficient punishment for taking planes there. There's honour my sixties so to speak right in heard it today and I know coaches are trying to gain and a digital bill. There's money involved it's their jobs. They'll take you needed taking it but there's a certain code that I think the auction operate under in the L. By march 2. Which is it takes it. It's weak on action at least they will but if you do get paid dire consequence meet Bobby Petrino. That's gonna happen to him he still be equitable. As far as Toronto and look if it.

I like Steelers. Mean minute beat them earlier in the year. Steelers are home. Eleven at five I think Pittsburgh one of those teams along with Kansas City could potentially. Potentially. Give the patriots part time at wells Miami it. That's not structured that way and Steelers when this ball game comical ways heavy favorites while. In the NFC the giants and Green Bay have gone back and forth. Acker hurtled to six at Lambeau. Part of beat him that they use the giants though and it's now with I think one of the best defense in the playoffs. In particular over the last season. The development five New York Giants like you know the music on Eli as at least in the post season in the past. This is a tough day. I'm gonna go with the giants though ultimately to the way the ups and its crazy things Rogers plan as mine right now. Is he did at the fans for New York off the slowdown the Packers of course CNET. Brought up the fight that passes. Thirty yards its best football so. Houston falling to our Houston beating Oakland yesterday some fourteen Seattle over Detroit 66 Louis Seahawks now.
