We're on our continuing Saints camp coverage here on -- utopia K okay anybody there we wouldn't miss a few moments to go to visit with Saints defensive line coach. Bill Johnson in the last hour -- in as we do on the weekend hitting in the football season -- college football talking about the LSU Tigers and their projections. I'm not too hot going into 2010. Minutes of the media picked him number before in the southeast and western division and conference. Behind Alabama Arkansas. Auburn Arkansas and that they -- fourth just ahead of Mississippi State and ole miss. Well that is they know the very tough conference in the state of Louisiana houses teams in the division wonderfully. Level teams that get a chance to win their counties and get into the top sixteen and get to the playoffs they conference features. May -- state southeastern Louisiana university and -- and no questions -- negatives and down and pivotal Harvard on the value at nickel state university. It is Southland Conference -- over the Southland Conference was at media day he said. He is the host of the might look to show for southeast in football hosokawa's Lions football and Southland conference for both television channel one -- Don't just Allan thank you so much for the time I appreciate your help me out. Thank you dig I appreciate the chance to be on here and -- just looking forward to football season came late -- you know and. Well it's -- you know if we -- CC. Houses they'll issue a state school where the the SEC perhaps maybe you know one double -- football is the Southland Conference with four Louisiana teams and southeast -- them make mason southeast of the two teams that are highly photo this year. -- you know they're gonna. A lot of preachy and I promote -- east and southeastern. Just about every haven't gone to the media -- herself when chopper maybe fate he would always be. And the one -- spotted into deservedly so to speak you know I don't they they put together a very nice resonate for one W actually gets put off. They're very consistent in the conference and it's one -- -- tradition where you're going to be there until you get knock it'll knock down from a and they need stayed put together. It's incredible resume southeastern as the third this year in the style -- conference breezy and cold but by the coaches and the upside he's another right by the -- -- the thing that why she was picked Atlanta. And both cold and has really made a nice job -- coach Mike Lucas they were in contention. On the final two games of the year for stopping conference crown. Think that ball in Compton has been number one team in both polls government -- they wanted to -- here and return their quarterback Gary goes first senior year. New coach at nickel state no -- since they -- -- OP -- so Cody -- Cuellar shoot two seasons ago first. A season in all western state history they did now when he gained ten stone has -- seven on the offensive side of the ball. I'll pick six according to the coaches. There and then when you -- and as far as on the inside these they have been picked last in the conference Bobby see where -- -- -- -- wanna get a feel. A ballclub that -- don't come around offensively Northwestern State their candidate to make up a little bit of a move this year much like SE there was a highly thought of but. They came out toward the top of the conference. We know anytime you have a coaching change -- understand it from a lot to be change Yankee your personality there. And I think a lot of people with a look at that northwestern Jane Blanchard hit what looked well not -- football game. I was very surprising you know Northwestern State they're very deep tradition and that usually Vienna they always play great defense they don't have an explosive offense and that's what coach Pete but -- really was hitting aren't. It is media day he wants it's football team to get back to playing north western style football. They wanna be aggressive on both sides of the ball not just defensively but also authentically attacking on the field. And he made it clear that they're going to be DePaul air show the pictures -- more out of their eyes to the bathroom she kind of came here last year as a freshman a true freshman and gave them a spark up when throwing the football. And running the football and they say -- got. Bigger and stronger as you expect he would gone from attraction as well more year and they're excited about him. But they also cable backed -- and I -- the transferred from Louisville a year ago. It is central high school and backwards so coach beamer thinks that he can turn around this year -- got the talent at northwestern you know really put together much recruiting classes. There was a console boat to the makes less out of look SEC at LSU this hour. Our division one double A state schools in a powerful conference in the one double A level. The Southland Conference featuring a mag knees southeast and -- western state and nickel state university and Northwestern State that span radio he would -- onto his sophomore season as head coach with the demons. I -- coach in new sheriff in town down a homer on the buy you exhibit no. For the nickel state -- and they would look like they'll join the mix now. From a standpoint that is -- As far as it being more wide open a ballclub that forever they run the football but that's how are they gonna do now they gonna spread things out. Well yet labor income Charlie stunt he takes over for Jake Thomas -- Collison moved going to be an assistant at Northwestern State -- -- The coach outcome than what they. Dave -- exclusive. Offensive pedigree -- to -- he's been held as a coordinator at BYU Alabama. -- and state Louisville he's been a part of. -- going to be a prototype offense and really BL to do many things. Not only girls and also run whenever the defense struck yet. Predicting what they're gonna do coached all of the 1990 not yet he's the opposite cornered the asserting our forty don't want and it comes up. So to judge scoring points you know talking and that the media day. -- we've got to score some points but they would wanna be entertaining to our fancy what's funny and entertaining style of football now Nichols state any low -- -- transition period and that because for the last several years. That's all part of personnel has been. I've been groomed to run the option -- that put a lot of different things. Your technique is totally different on the offensive line is that it's different from the -- -- -- -- receiver positions so they've got -- Some -- some growing pains next couple years trying to put in this system -- -- -- if he had been very impressive resume when it comes to scoring the football and offensive football. -- now and the one they'll come Lasalle Bank conference football also host tonight you can show for the southeast in football and Southland Conference games throughout the season what happened manganese in southeast and the cream of the crop looks like Northwestern State. And nickel state saw a few legs behind those things from the Louisiana stamp on the Southland Conference. Main east and southeast into and three according to the coaches so which one has a chance to really really challenged. For the conference title this year. I think they both did you know they both have very hard places don't win me Gerry -- went down the hall style Asian actually becoming harder when it -- -- hitting a look at making stage. It a lot coming back up. On both on the ball all the they do their quarterback in there Perillo you know it. It's hard to replace a guy like Derek to -- such a great winner you know it's not what he did on the field much his athleticism and big arm but he was a straight up winner he hit a great job for the Cowboys you know -- -- can reach -- to be -- -- patient you know a lot about. And around about every day I know there's a lot of excitement and Hammond. 89 starters back on defense they also return Tommy honors it was a pretty he's an all American last year before being a hotline an injury age eight back. This year offensively yes -- starter back on the offensive line company -- replaced at quarterback as well Tyler Beatty will step -- he was a transfer. -- from the university of -- yet complaint from last year look very good our looked. A little suspect it's but he had all the tools for export 220 -- can really struggle football can run the football. And they've really got on my staff and their welcome to a decision very very excited about this year -- and don't be surprised -- -- -- -- feet. I -- Lester mr. football Louisiana get sprinkled in there offensively if she is wearing green and gold this season. And Elijah Allen thank you so much for they have a before to have viewers throughout the football season own Saturday's this -- we appreciate -- time. Thank you. All right -- and nobody talked about the -- -- conference. You've always been a part of it exciting conference tough tough division they wanted to -- in -- belief. And now also is an ever more home team used to. Try to -- -- nickel state -- believe there will be trying to do local authorities initially is because -- affects. Yeah bowl a late bloomer like I wasn't actually -- me right now these heated political ball really sincere. Like me plays when there. The cornerback position my senior year you played quarterback last year was loaded in the -- I -- noted more for his basketball skills do they won the state championship. And basketball. You -- -- three point shooting contest and had the tournament they went up and and Nashville. You know international tournament Arby's classic -- But he wants to focus on -- ball a great opportunity. We'll coach Charlie zones and -- stayed -- city you can develop me here's a -- as coach Ron Amadon. You know I bring him young -- -- so called coach Doug great will have you know and Oregon State to NFL quarterbacks over a great opportunity to pull it. I guess can't get more occasion that he'd give it works out or. Blown -- they're both very fully intended only spells his name BA you play so going pivotal can't get more who has -- there. They do you think people who has been there users behave soon as the case there. My BA we will we gave fans have again about a guy's strong ties to a big bonus Saints defense the offensive line coach Phillip Johnson tips the radio on the basis sports talk. Saints game coverage continues on does he does you have. And welcome back to sports star. Over here on the home. Or champion New Orleans Saints W just your radio offers out of welcome in saint defensive -- coach Bill Johnson to the radio little coach Johnson thanks for joining us pay great mayor Greg be back on the football field. -- you look at it is -- a lot of improvement from oh wait to -- man. Expectations had been Marines we win the championship and I -- -- those expectations in the go for more improvement Pomona and no team. What we're always looking for improvement you know -- of playing his the one thing I'll give credit to our football team it's hard to value right where we are right now this time and our training camp. But I would go back to the OTAs. After a full valuation of that out all of our guys came awful. The Super Bowl and got right back into work and we destitute and I really think we already had bush initiative improvement especially up front only fans and we're we're looking to be better -- a bit more dominating day financially and and I think our guys are working and do that. And a coach Johnson how does it feel to be a champion you know you know I go way back. -- northwest and are you ready to handle success. -- you know as a whole lot easier it fit to handle failure you casino yet to do with. Who you feeling good about this -- meal that always been if it's any team individually guide that ship when you shoulder. So so how do you keep dead and gone until a tent well one thing if your ball partial not think that did it anyway it went in and went -- at the level we did it it it. Sort of but so -- files -- -- -- validity that the fact that you know how to do it. And -- to give you confidence and you can use it anyway you want to end -- anytime you're at the top people will come at you but if you believe in yourself and you believe in what you do we knew he always strive to get better. And -- think the chips always follows that might. And bill look -- the new pieces -- of puzzle of and militarily but what does a guy like a veteran like Jimmy Willis and Alex Brown bring to the table. They bring great professionalism -- you won one guy has great speed one guy is a very go play with a lot of power it's a great combination of those two. We have a group of of of Palestinians this year we got some tremendous competition won't go -- in there. -- it's too early to tell what's going on but until they want. You can already see each other you know Foreman a teammate but also working against each other trying to get each other better so I think bringing those two -- in bring in some good. Stiff competition a deposition. SA's defensive Blanco to -- wood Johnson is our Spanish against saint are wrapping up first practice here this afternoon and -- number two training camp 2010. -- -- that's all the -- about the run defense that sent has been talked about in this all season that sounds very solemn days here. At times inconsistent what was done in the offseason bringing these guys in to maybe focus in on that. We brought to big young rookies. -- wood from LSU and we've also brought in a kid from of free agent from a H Carolina those are big. Strong human bands and I think they will help us down Milan won on just up -- down the line just to be a little bit stronger inside. Also think that from a scheme standpoint. We've learned a lot of how to fit certain runs and and I think that as we go forward will get better. And you know it's just like in some situations. Okay around stats are good but were particularly -- I'll always play and runs so. Something some of that was I think situationally I have a strong belief our guys are going to be run good run defenders -- Lugo via. Good strong run defense if we need to be. And you look back on there which is it coaching some some of the game's big bronze and and add to that the defense really shut people down so the adjustments were made so let's keep his group knowing how to adjust well known. -- just just like Oakland play of the of the Arizona -- games is simple adjustment with the front and you know the -- and played ten more times wrestling career I think we're getting more for Britain may well LaRoche game. Our scheme very multiple. I think we're -- to make faster decisions and see our offense is faster and I will all those things I think is just accumulation a lot of things to help us in that area. And villa how do you figure out -- is a combination -- Coach Williams as far as he's setting a good game plan. To figure out of the rotation because always until the fans out there. You might not started a game would you in the second quarter that you are started NN at the Heidi beyond the numbers snaps because. Every NFL team would -- offensive line they had that rotation as their formula to that. So there's a formula to it I think there's a number depends on the partial measured longer you coach somebody you know what their number is to hit. As far as numbers of plays in the game. Each game play in this league especially early in the year he can't think about that game we got to think about six things and sixteen games. And you know -- -- so many bulletin the load the chamber for a year so the rotation something that we go bow and feel something we go -- situation. And and you know with the numbers that we have to dress out. To put shoulder pads on you gotta play. NN bill look you talk about you know demons attack with the incident. And you look at times how the NFL. Can have a specialized players I mean whether it's a run stuffer. Our pass rusher is there room five guy -- purely a pass -- get out that a quarter legacy like a junior -- If you can prove to you that you don't obvious passage -- get after the quarterback. Even though he might be a little -- you know in a running situation everybody has to have some form some you know some play like they have been Jeter you know -- a very Townsend rusher. He's got very good skills were quick to actually -- we go to -- but there is a place for. Or particular. Partial get a specially person problem as you just can't have a warm and every everything gotta have a big guy in the middle got to have a who all. The guy with a lot of utility in the middle got to have a hit every got a hit too tight end at the end you -- have a speed rusher so. Biggest thing as far as defense one is not having all the same types and so that you can use him in multiple ways. Why now say the pins and -- coach Bill Johnson here on Saints radio -- -- goes just this focus in on again them and anyone Will Smith a tremendous year a year ago. I'll probably got left out of a couple of awards and accolades but really finished up the entire season with a Pro Bowl caliber year. He's again it's become a true true leader -- this franchise great attitude maturing even as he gets older and -- years. Okay he believes in the New Orleans Saints loves being in the same player. -- had a tremendous last year you know we got left out a little bit but the problem with the Wales not -- this the way you do you change -- -- seventy years in a row. And people recognize you if you hear it with consistency so from that standpoint we're looking for big -- -- for his individual. I can relate to things like that he'll be recognized and he has that type year to year zero. No bill looking at the start training camp obviously all defense has had different packages. Explained that to fans of the mindset. A YTO 4343. Team you would utilize a 34 a time to see the beginning of practice field and utilizing including. It comes into play 34 defense. Well this is only -- about a minute show right now and we can go that -- they -- day itself clinical and almost two different straight straight forward for three with two different things that come to mind first is one. Is to give the outfits different looks okay to be multiple. And so for to give you more. More opportunities are always -- bring in people. And you can bring you know people but then next time and be another person come and it's just a wave change enough numbers and making them have to figure out protections. And make them have to work a little bit. All the practice they'll wish I wish I make them brawl another card in practice so that they have to work against it told. Our whole -- to be multiple to make people have to work on his journal week. And you know I think of multiple defense takes time for a -- to get to grass but I think being in the second year -- who you'll -- some -- trucks. Coach a year ago we issued by Anthony Hargrove he's. Laid a foundation really hit the reset button and establish something good you gotta be proud and a young man and now it's a change in -- really -- status. Proud of him as a present from his personal habits and his partial always live this life. Everybody knows the story about that and also we were very excited about the way he's worked TVMR a year and a half of football to come out to play. The way played last year and I do know where would be without. But is no different what we're just spoke about will had a great year we must continue must be better gotta keep getting better and didn't he will have a little bit -- in -- -- And trying to coach a year ago she told us about your account and being -- who has in the jaw and I was assistant used to using that did she wanted to tax they -- -- hey I. Hargrove he's in charge our veins -- every day we go out and then put. -- a good day working any person believes in the -- the next thing you know milligram of jars of gleeful. Coach Johnson thank you so much good look in 2010 all right thank you guessed -- -- best. The Saints defensive line coach Bill Johnson joining us here on WWO talk about those front guys up there was so important to the great Williams scheme in the someone special guests to another opportunity to a -- it ESP in. That come NFC south blogger -- is this is -- just here wanna media members of the national media in town to take out the first couple days of the saints' training camp. 2010. And then we certainly appreciate you joining us here on to WWL radio and go to somebody attacked. Okay not church near me -- weekend to -- again I can't hear you over the head said but I can here yet through the headset Selz. I'm glad to be with you glad to be with Bobby hokey always a pleasure to come out here in Metairie. And making the NFC south training camp tour in my head now tomorrow morning going to Carolina and then back to Tampa for a couple days and then onto Atlanta so. Pull him all over the next week. We just ten days. And notepad speak get out of Atlanta not obviously. When you look at maybe China won I don't know you wanna call Lannan -- cars they finally had back to back. -- winning seasons. But you know ever almost sense that and then -- paid coach who's gonna make a difference or come up big there's things like right now I announced to all the fans this. That if the Saints are gonna be he -- NFC south. It is going to be a tough battle beating Atlanta Falcons -- I agree with you I mean look at last year Atlanta. They went 97. -- it was a disappointing season for them they had so many injuries they had high expectations. For the two games against the Saints they played them tough both times. And get that team healthy it's they can be a pretty in pretty good team if anybody in the south is gonna challenges Saints did it's going to be Atlanta I mean right there at Carolina's total question mark in Tampa -- is still. A work in progress so Atlanta's -- logical challenger there. And -- the moves they've been all season you know trying to keep pace with the number one offense and absolutely -- and -- Iran instead and unless they're sleigh -- -- And they -- they've definitely upgraded their defense which they had the Saints in mind when they did that there's no doubt about it the one thing they didn't really do was sitting. Get a pass rusher. You know there. They're -- count on John Abraham rounds and backwards. I hope he does. But you know it is -- it's got to be concerned but talking to Mike Smith and Thomas to -- trust. They need said they watched -- film on him real close last year they felt that he knew he was getting good rush that things just didn't fall into place. And they think he can get it back and they also think. Split Peria Jerry their first round pick from last year who missed almost the entire season they think with him. Back on the inside that's gonna help generate more push in the middle should help out John. And the guys on the other side Croix -- Lawrence -- barrier whoever ends up playing -- And then have -- looking. I guess when you're trying to build upon a championship -- is an improvement. And I'll say this now this is maybe nitpick even the special teams the Saints had the worst coverage units through their lives and a punt coverage through twin night. And out and kick off coverage but look at as far as stopping the run when you look at teams across the board. Tampa Bay Carolina and probably -- look at a running back -- -- our individual runners that that's a big challenge for the Saints Stevenson and look at a Michael Turner. So we're always was saying that does give an opportunity when he got to San Diego's remedied in the yard rusher not -- -- I shared low wage increase. But it seems like he's back to where he wasn't initially signed them. Yeah I was there for their mini camp in late may early June whenever it was Michael Turner was very noticeably fit. And I talked to about it and not. He admitted that he got out of shape after the 08 season he went to Pro Bowl took a little extra time off. I mean -- any he's stored fat he said I got fat and not. He came back in. He's got banged up last season and he thinks it's because he got himself out of shape. So he's committed himself he's really in great shape right now and anything settle keep them healthy and he's on a mission to prove that 2008 was not open a one season wonder for him so. It's can be real interesting to see what he does this year. And end of pat a look at a quarterback play obviously I Drew Brees the cream of the crop in the NFC south I mean he's out there. I'm definitely in the conversation -- not defense you can go back before we treat him and Peyton Manning in the end. Tom Brady is always going to be -- that makes good looking -- that you know Ryan and Matt Ryan. -- are great rookie season and I mean you know to might coming out of the gates woken up -- up to expectations you know 34 and a half million guaranteed. And then you look at him and Flacco they kind of goes to Carlos -- -- -- -- -- approach taken -- Matt -- obviously think he's a franchise quarterback -- what do you think. Powell Matt Ryan who'd be more like his rookie season getting better or more always utilize your day. They think they'll be a big step this year I mean they they were not disappointed with last season. It wasn't may you with the fans expected foot. I mean they looked at it. And they say okay well we had Michael Turner hurt -- almost half the season and Harry Douglas who is going to be number three guy he was out. We weren't able to do everything wanted to run offense the past so it wasn't all Matt's fault in their eyes and I think we've withheld -- healthy Michael turned. -- Harry Douglas back as a number three receivers get open up the passing game a bikini -- Matt balance. I was a bounce back -- I I don't think you step back either by figures -- take a big leap forward this year. ESPN and I come NFC south -- the pay is this it's as a special discount of online and ESPN home page to page thesis title marching on it. Headed to deceive you so title they instead of expecting the expected to vote chance to have a hang over it is buying into the idea. Of any repeat talk about the peace -- -- apparently hopeful on line in the what you're seeing it from this team and and a couple of practice. Yeah well Greg Greg Williams. Brought it up yesterday when he talked to a safe. Kind of brought it up on zone you sit and get a little sick and tired hear about the Super Bowl hangover. You know there's been no evidence of that has seen no signs these guys. Are a better team now than they were last year. And Jon Gruden today talked a little bit listened and he. You know he's a guy who went through Super Bowl hangover when he was in Tampa Bay -- -- buddy innings giving him some advice and and don't people and one of the reporters asked gruden today -- know what's -- how and why do you think the Saints can repeat. And gruden Spurs answer was. The quarterback and that's that's a number one thing. And Drew Brees I mean. Jon Gruden in any in Tampa Bay had Brad Johnson right who got a god bless -- a journeyman and yeah but you know Drew -- that's it as a good start in a salon is you have -- on the field you're you're starting off -- a very good spot -- Yeah I agree Witten was one of Greg said and with with gruden said didn't you look at the Saints. Recent history is not being good to Super Bowl champions are in Super Bowl losers they've almost all missed the playoffs are struggled the next season. Since the Broncos. A decade ago. But I think the Saints are any different situation because. That final eight plan with free agency I think kinda helped them a little bit they. And and the uncertainty over free agency in collective bargaining agreement teams in go out. Silently what you did lose five or six players yeah. I think I'd be -- and then you put like on the back burner rub bell -- Really was alike you know got -- will also because everybody when he when he came -- everybody wants to get paid you can't pitch every yeah desired I've gone back to Tampa Bay. Dexter Jackson who wound up Super Bowl MVP. One of getting a huge contract at Arizona just because he had one good game right and you know assistant coaches got hired away. None of that happened with the Saints -- pretty much the same team I'm Scott Fujita is I'm not selling him short it was a very good player this team. -- that's basically all they really lost and they've they've got a draft class and and -- a couple other moves with Alex brown and Jimmy will Chris and I think they've upgrades there -- so essentially. On paper this is as good as talented a team as it was last year I think. -- you know bad. You wanna see which rookies can make an impact and it's always hard to make a world championship team. Because it considering all the pieces they got back. But one -- I'm excited to -- still learning football. It is tight end Jimmy Graham I mean you look Antonio Gates on Tony Gonzales -- -- now with the Falcons. I mean I think that of side to Jimmy Graham is huge job seen mussina made that one handed catch -- our result low -- -- assemble a hot rod like a ten yard play. He's well defended he goes on like he's a rebound and yeah and you look at this 6667. In that range so. I mean to me the sky's the limit for Jimmy grabs it and I don't say this. You know it's Obama blind side the Michael or story that's like he was -- consumers spoon -- Compare that adversity that this that Jimmy grant has basically absorbing hits are about a grades. Oh -- it's a tremendous story and you know hack it satellite great story of the draft didn't and all that and bring you thought well you know as soon -- little -- project it's gonna take a couple of years. But I don't watch him out here and they can play in the athletics is on the basketball side of me conceded that's life. You know my all time heroes Joe Paterno and -- his big things in recruiting. Was he would go out. The players he was recruiting in football. He'd wait until watch him play basketball in the wintertime to -- they're athletic schism and Jimmy Graham. Content when it hit you would've gotten a scholarship and Joe Paterno. Right -- the fat does. He's he's tremendously athletic I think you know I've had -- eventually playing under coach speak patent system yet he could win even -- -- yeah greens again and and we turned sacking David Thomas. I mean he's not can get thrown in over his head and -- to do more than ten do. But they're gonna create a role for him he's he's gonna play a role this season there's no doubt. Penn found one here we appreciate the time a year ago we were working on a piece and you didn't visit here -- Ricky Jackson. And that kind of you know what a win they -- and so forth and -- next weekend he goes. -- -- the Hall of Fame on the you're currently working on of the peace talk about that and this to a whole run that the Saints head the ticket has to have that do it. Yeah. Well let me and I just say -- -- that -- that I am doing coming up Bobby just I was gracious enough to give me a few minutes to talk about his former teammate and gave me some great stuff and that's gonna run. Not serves keep an eye ear and he'll be on the website either Thursday or Friday of the of this coming week and knows he be kind of a tribute to Ricky and and what he meant is seen in the end in that locker room and everything like that. And you know basically. Ricky was a guy who was kinda on the bubble for the Hall of Fame there. For quite a few years I did the argument last summer. I was asked to pick one -- in the NFC south who belonged in the Hall of Fame. That wasn't there and I picked him because he was the obvious choice and I I'm not saying that article started anything by any means -- dots idea I think this Saints. As they got successful last season they got more on the national radar the voting took place today before the Super Bowl. Certainly need that -- helped in and Peter Finney who is also going to be recognized -- fame and nearly did the presentation and talk to voters about it -- -- he's been asked and help get him in there but bottom line is Ricky did that work on the field and. It's about time that he's finally get nearly that I said I just look at the numbers it was only talked about this big this like three training -- -- back in Jackson. I went Andre Tippett as the Patriots went in. We look at the numbers. He had done it it came had a go HTTP Tippett and -- out of the game so guessing you -- -- that last year I was doing that do you send out us and Europe and a spot on I say if you put Andre Tippett and their how can Ricky Jackson I'd be in India and obviously. He got a lot of recognition when that Peters even though they got whacked by the Bears -- consumable. You know it's it has a lot to do also with team's success. Ranked recognize individuals to our players. Yeah absolutely. And and the market you come from and you know let's be honest New Orleans. Is not a small market yeah it's not -- New York or Chicago or Dallas by any means. And -- eight. It was also very good.

He evidence -- -- -- that's all right it means that we had -- out every hit it to -- but the pace is this is interesting decent. You know Bobby I was AFC south and you know it looks like right now he never -- has been wild. In his division from horse the first scenario -- first half and then of course a donation -- winning NL won't consumable. But from a whole grand scheme of things right now it just looks and in the big games are played on paper -- like it to really racing yeah between the Saints and Falcons. It's no big game and I tell you -- and I I think is going to be. A dog fight now I'm trying to be objective. But if you look at it -- has good data -- is scheduled. The Saints sent home. I think they have on Vegas is Vegas like eight point favorite is beginning this season in the superdome within. Later in the c.'s season December 27 companies up to Christmas now we are not as he's -- -- -- right now. They have the same thing it to a three point favorite in in the -- don't actually going to be. That the meat of the schedule when you look at his opponent to face and expectations when you start out an incentives before between Thanksgiving and Christmas basically. You go -- that Dallas things getting -- And the following game eagle -- at Cincinnati which a lot of people have been winning their division. Now you know low briefly only have one home game and and five games all coming up between Thanksgiving and think Christmas feel they needed the Rams a home Corey got to take care of business and then. After ransom got to go at Baltimore. In December 27 at the Georgia Dome as the Falcons. So you know and I -- I even say this I think you know kind of mom look at more than double bitch is like eleven wins twelve wins. But that's you know them -- the great start like an illegal but they comes at a right time entered the season. Not in my -- point like 82 after ten games. But Nate you know I don't think that's gonna that's going to be a tough wrote a hole so to speak -- -- that -- Considering the expectations. People -- even have the Ravens as the AFC favorite. Because they've upgraded their offense so we talk about their defense but if you talk around the country. Daddy day people think the problem to them about the Saints and then NFC south.
