And good evening and welcome the sports talk online at WW dot com is operated jaguar opinion blow deer like. The Saints. Moves us thought their free agency this one is. Primarily with the most recent one. The trade branding cooks for trading Franco to the Patriot to rethink won the Cox treat the Saints the Patriots or do you think it's too early to Terry at the net and things yeah. Cares to vote online at WW though that cop. The quarterback of the New Orleans Saints he would with the talk about a variety of time is pretty free agency in games that. I'm about a month from now all season work Drew Brees take the radio auto drew. Thank you so much for that time and drew I go back about oh. And over a decade ago this time a year with I guess a chance on an exciting one for you a lot of uncertainty. What's it like drew for a guy you even in your situation that I like your new teammate taking your proven. You got to skins on the wall you know that you're due to a top your game you can do some things. But that uncertainty not knowing where you'll be mix if you'll be next I would imagine. Even the most secure person it's got to mean these games and titles on the wall. It would steal at the very least may be raised eyebrow at like eight yeah I'm concerned about it. Well I mean look in the coming years or have because. During its free agency you you acquire guys and you lose some guys. You know traits that and you know things can happen doubts over the last couple weeks. But I I mean really I look at it very exciting time armed group are are keen to get take shape. What's going to be next year and when not to the practice is that approaching him. You know we've got a lot of experience first three rounds which is a great opportunity acquire some young talent. In a lot of different areas in. You know listen I I think we're just a few they produced a few new pieces away it is in the public beginning to come together and went over excited about. Now drew looking at the receiving corps and high he always spread the ball around. You have this is an argument and that the best ever in the conversation. But the top a trio of receivers. That being Michael Thomas so Willie's the end obviously branding coach who no longer in the fall. What role do you view. Ted Ginn junior obviously still fast can stretch the defense vertically like branding coax. Is that a case in point where you try and get actual work would have to be familiar. Are our how how would you compare would you compare him maybe a situation that. When you got to Noah Devery Henderson a little better because it just saves like navy's just. Coincidence but this is saying like the more you work to do every. Then he caught the ball of better compared to the beginning of his corner and a ten again. There's one thing daisy now only he can bring it at a high level being in his thirties young thirties but. He's dropped the law every now and any consistent catch him what what did you work with him the evening get him better in that area. Yeah I think I think that didn't quite have his best football here last year. You know when he kind of made enemies we're back to Carolina. The second time and yeah he's going to be part of their opportunities made a bunch of explosive plays and I think more impressive than that though he's always been a fast guy that he's become. A very polished receiver and a lot of ways. And he's a veteran guys who's who's been around a long time. And so I think he brings that element that will let that element of experience. I'll look forward to working with the amount of fort chew. You know I can't say I know a ton about the player other than what I've seen see him being in the divisional much years but. I think he's gonna have a great role on on our within our receiving corps. To compliments from guys that did. I think are great young players. In in Willie neither Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman. Excited to forward you know that's that's all he's in the twelve in every ought he's that spent a lot of time with these guys have. You know there's new new wrinkles that we were always introducing in the offseason. Earned. Offensively we're policies and currently is critical votes you know that. That's. Beginning to build the chemistry you know for what's going to be awfully great your. Saints quarterback Drew Brees joining us here on Saints radio WW LA MFM in dot com drew. Always a busy time I Menem to eBay as he does drew have asleep I would imagine you know he's he's got a very regiment about his. His body takes care of himself the drew even when there is no offseason with business going on now look something that you talked about. I awhile back with a venture with some different things including walk on and now some of the location just on opened up once coming up but just outside the beverage area over the in Zachary. They reappear open or eleventh walk on location today backer which. I freed up the picture on the Blue Line began at 8:30 this morning. And it was it was quite a long time by the time we open and so everybody was very excited about that location. Restaurant under construction in Tyler. That Antonio is this search in Austin we just confirm that. As a franchise location in the quite a few others in in the week in Texas so. We've we should we should build 710. What those locations. In those areas here just this year. So we're we're we're growing like crazy there's a lot of excitement around the Brandt. We've got a bunch of great franchisees. And just excited that we can take you know what was. You. Small we get a brand you know. Over the last ten years than him and take it nationally as a as a franchise and now. And our drew look at Ed not a significant player Larry wall for. And I kind of pat myself on the back I kind of surviving gets to the Saints and it lasted for agencies simply because. The track record in the past Sonoma or Carl Nicks and you know you try to work on the salary cap who you gonna pay him those go on going to Tampa Bay we bring in being Grubbs. And I thought Larry Wilford for the bank for your buck. Could be a type player now than against jar because I know what you think Jahri Evans. But Basie and the players 78 years younger. And we solidifying the middle and I am playing alongside a Max Unger. Oh would was extremely things like that we shouldn't be missed a beat with the addition by Wofford. Bull then the running game and have protect and you. That's that's agree additions no coach great at a lot of new rave reviews for him and everyone outspoken too you know you as a music great teammate. Did you or did you Escude in the did you talk to close the Marty also because obviously Indian the quarter out there and had an album. Yeah yeah I know that he and and he had he had sort of put that as well. Yeah I mean. That's part of the process you try to find out if you're productive players that are great guys as well and so they are in need and think that's. But he said he but majority of it is that such a mainstay at that position for a crucial for a you know so. I think you know Vickers who bittersweet you know and and I don't you know. I don't think there's nothing set in stone used to howl you know. It Dario ever come backer like that by RTC when you signed you guys like that too long term deal you know. Again there's a lot of excitement around him with the players and what what he can bring to the offense to. Now drew what can you tell the fans though because you faced them I know Saluki cleavage you played a Panthers twice a year AJ Klein. And he played latter part of season and really came into the game. When a key going had a concussion but. What Tabitha you seen on film maybe a guy like AJ Klein when he's the ring at a table for the linebackers. Yeah. He's not a guy that you're just in talking to some of the Carolina players bill and respect for him. Like you extremely intelligent talk you know the times that we play against them. You know you've got you got that question you know that you result. He had great command of the defense and very comfortable. In in that system which you know requires that position to check quite a bit and we see. Lute weekly obviously. You know when he's in America to cover that attention. He. Field in case in the court all of that you know they declined whatever he was apparently he's absence. Would do a great job of that as well so I think that was a great pick for. Drew when all of this has been on your foundation all the stuff you do all of the fear you and your wife in their reach now to community your family being apart the community about concede you all around and doing things. As elemental point in time grew it any easier and Q we know about the moment and aunt and Jimmy John's as you know the attack sandwich but. And they have a shooter he drew get in the lamb but the key to it is became we want to do. Come out what you would be your favorite dish it or try to get some shifts around it and cook it there as had been world process of that signature Drew Brees. Does that that the best the best one is probably back to Purdue University there was there was kind of a a little greasy Sturm. Yeah I called culture xxx xxx diner yeah anyway it's kind of a late night spot. You know and remaining ninety auto regional at the end good look at. But it you know like breakfast what it Forsett. A place though. They asked me as as as I was leaving Purdue that they are we that we wouldn't name a breakfast you know what would it be. And you know you can customize yourself that are out but I don't like. Country fried steak and then. With hash Browns in Beijing and they were smothered at all in increase greatly. Well I Joba drew us all the children. All of a million Eddie net and we did you'd have a gut. Malhotra. Got bought out at forgot about us accurately accurately right right right. Hand and sound it. Yes it's fun to go you know opulence social media. You know it'll send Jeremy elect them you know after pretty special here xxx yeah in the out of the picture of it and I'll be out of the picture of it. It's pretty enticing about. Our television partner Jerry are there is it xxx is Theo is Theo and asked him back you know going out and was that via. Absolutely absolutely that's that's still that's still a pretty legendary place in fact I think it was on you on that show like. Yeah I had the idea what gas area here. Austin drew has everything which which you mentioned Walt on just it is an eleven point you over the exact your great great community over the exact Greek. This outsider and routes has he has it gone like you like the mobius eating you've noted about his pitching Utah you to notice when this first came together and you guys. Got to get that this is something you that you Fam you exciting looking forward to pack how's it been now on the Lola gets them over a year to you've been involved our local. I was. That that's I was really excited about this for a lot of reasons of the corporate entry you know one of the founders LSU grad walk on that well player coach you. Well. In his leadership his passion for the brand and what he's create. On the just being aligned with him apartment if this has been tremendous. Of the opportunity to take Louisiana company and to take it nationally I think a lot of pride in that you know you feel like. You're giving the rest of the country the pace to lead an hour cajun cuisine. It's it's it would differentiate such a thing from your traditional sports bar in the food is it's fantastic. In fact. Typically you know export or Molly they would yourself on about points not so shoot 70% of sales and food. You know that's because people keep coming back for the suit it's great food and it's a great experience you know there's something their fervor it's not just. Guys went up to watch the game that's a guy that stick the same leader as some people gain that's the other there's so. The better for everybody for or against and then Ian. Absolutely so there's a lot of different. You know market a lot of different cities and didn't Wear a place like walk on walks and extend. Very well received where we are you know what the taxes. Is there were fantastic the franchise there. Shreveport actors or report that boat or sitting right outside. On Tyler Texas Austin Houston Dallas San Antonio all those have been franchise urged that we're gonna go out those communities so. Were to continue to make our way through itself these and continue to grow on you we've got forty plus. Franchisees are franchises and signed on to beat they'll you know the next 56 years so that worked. We're excited about you know direction to order of merit and are excited about the brand. Now drew a more football question before we let you run. When I was looking at how the season and folded in and obviously. You look at the Dolphins in the Vince is doing and we always talk about the turn oval margin you know in the up. Hopefully go on the plus side I look at obviously firs downs were number 13 down a percentage number one. Scoring offense. Only second behind Atlanta Falcons. Well but I was kind of surprised a thing like in years past this has not been the case where. We've had scenarios where we scored I want to say like you know first of four possessions on getting a touchdown but I'll look at what all's said and done. And now I don't I don't know this ever happen except for this year that we were outscored. In the first in the second quarter social gonna to have time. As I and that always playing catch up but I've never really seen as being outscored in the and it first and second quarter. They autism when I was aware that that stats specifically. We don't talk about starting fast you know I think important first drive productive point she creates momentum Beckham thing. You know. I would say it if you just took the stat of you know being at halftime. I'd say typical the euphoric at halftime that you were a percentage of that same trying to. Pretty prior pretty high on the percentage of winning you know Woodward leading at halftime so. But that you know. I think if you're doing all those other things that you mention right by the turnover ratio. You know third down percentage and sustain drives and all all that in particular is that the chi you know the the scoring in the first and I don't have differential while that. Yeah I mean. I think the one thing you saw it land that do really well this year and they were fast start seeing you know there were 88 straight games were a year. Toward that south of the earth and that's a problem. And you sell like special playoffs and they page about seventeen got center Vinny they just get rolling quickly him. There's definitely mindset. Or. An emotional psychological thing goes along that I know that as we did Roland as a team. You know winning 12 games in a row that we give up on people all the sudden you give them the field lights. They did in the big hole shall overcome and I think is a lot of pressure on and so there are some peace effort. Last start win in the first half of the second half with a lead in just being able to write them. Drew Brees cosa many different fancy way is that big going on the Saints and who'd a nation on Sundays and other days and also in the community. And clueless at the eleventh welcomes location. In second you do when you get ready start cranking out with a Dunkin' Donuts do you get up to my neighbor the way intentional prayers now drew I'm not too proud I'll be glad to glaze and four in ninety your leg aren't rocket over the don't know account bay about make sure nobody nobody gets one goalie throughout painful. So for both of that over here or sure it etched. You're so I'll cook. Drew Brees drew as always thank you so much at a time good luck this out with see you before long and I'm you have Sam their way up Andrew formula you run right quake you feel about your bracket that we have in the final four and we got a win the championship and I liked Knicks want against her and they're drew neck here is he's a freight train man. Yeah he's if personal Purdue and say you know they've won the Big Ten outright regular season they lost in the first round a term which. I'm I'm. Hope it is a good thing is that it provides the motivation you know late that you went into that he can turn it more so than Atlanta's former. The Big Ten in the regular season so. Hopefully will be really motivated to conceded that bracket. Outlook to the Oilers go you know sweet sixteen and beyond so we'll we'll Seattle played out programs are all so. Absolutely Drew Brees drew thank you so much for the time what talk against him. Carter are all right and produce star players came ups wanna be fair big physical guy with that kind of waiting with.

Now of course Schlesinger era when I saw the opponent and their names sound familiar about us and a when we see Saint Mary's is to know it's. Mount Saint Mary's on things Saint Mary's and give them an outing dancing California. But looking at your opponent mount Saint Mary's I was reading they've from Maryland. Called a mountaineers in noble can you tell the fans about the opponent. Saw what they they beat George Mason in overtime that set. A basketball program that fans are familiar with a. Yet that they're very good genes that they're more than Northeast Conference. Are they have wondered Corky Carroll for term that there are polar opposite of aunts and style of play.

And actor would be more blast were what oh what awesome very. With you know coach amongst those in Dayton Ohio taken on mount Saint Mary's tomorrow night the winner moves on to take on Villanova the defending national champions. Thursday night in Buffalo, New York coach you know I heard this season Edmonton you don't go through a season outs and ups and downs. He was thought all of that as we did not confiscated went out on the West Coast and the central portion of the country. And you come home ago to a hot starting conference play. And there was some tight games but when people tend to watch all of the conference championship finals which there I'll pretty much all aired on television. There's always that come away with what will that team do when it's right you've fallen down. You know a point or two with. Under a minute left to play any no points and the list no points and did I come away with a field or did I say to myself even at the game willow oh attempt. Days like man I'm I'm concerned about and they haven't been here before although although the team in any sport -- to be coaches put on the year and into the tournament right in there. Corpus Christie booted team never looked like. That they did not Malone and it's hard when you talk about 2030 years being away from removed from going to return game. Who would rate here and I I credit you know our guys our staff. Are there had been so prepared and I don't know Bobby bill in these situations where. You just know he does know you know are ready ago. He'll go out and much can that carry our team didn't arrive switcher there should record that deal Nichols. And got the change as they did and in that event though and they don't lock here. And I would never considered it does can tell them that we had to be weird to control our body language. We had that we had to keep believing that we shouldn't just be out of that that we were. Eventually they would be there and we will be able to break tournament it and eventually make more top place. And they were a part of the temperature are exceptional. Some sort of grown men that will go party in the third you watch the game that's what so we get we've been running straight plate. To win the game we just up in the cup history one yeah and I expect the net and that's what preparing. Are too long night even on a much bigger stage. Improbable world you know good to open up the world great crowd well herb. Now are push legend just a hearing what you're saying and and I am thing you know pro just observing. Our team the style of play when your opponent mount Saint Mary's vs what yelled those things like. How they trying to trap and press and all Latin. That protected a full ball and and not having those turnovers and that's going to be wanted to keys to the game. It will Wear you know in total grosses and a sticking point all year. We really Yugo percentage were illegally get. But we turn over two terms. Which are really. Make sure idle threats of whom are there. Gilbert for drovers in my because she. Should the ball so well and then you know there for a tomorrow we can control. On the basketball be ball strong enough you know not turn it over to forward Greg shot tip especially in cheered shot at camp. Are in gear altered Greg Orton in sustain it up throughout the. So that's when we look at it at this tournament and now we Bob and then at 7 o'clock every year we duties and we joke about you know people for them bracket. Of people all over the world. That a fair now brackets and you're gonna read you know you read New Orleans. And some more glue you know it's a moment with say you know aids you know universe and Nebraska Omaha a lot of fun on our university in New Orleans. But for the hands down best. Out what is program was from basically. Being delegated to division three. To not having it happen in transforming. What was. Basically we don't know what direction we are going you know we know which direction we want to go but we don't know and put in the late to talk about Tuesday it. And out of the home B and basket almost eight. I don't know if I fully grasp it and you do bear ran the game I've built of people that have been around it but when we tell college basketball. This is a mean dude this is the goal. That every team every player every coach Reese coup wants is to be a lean mean his own net bracket you're nose on him bracket. Yeah it's great burst very honored that you want to play at individual. And mentally to it there's sixty term. There's places that over another. And in the time you're in the start would be a part time or my. Their return is one of the greatest smoke your life. You know in. Our for Natalie you as a coach but for the student athlete. Text. Trial a mark aren't. Out less than popular member in 2001 we played in the first ever opening round game here.
