Dodge Chrysler people do. Your dodge Chrysler Jeep dealers. Back above -- countdown to kickoff. I think for the -- today's opponent and they called the Minnesota Vikings -- -- all the things very. But be aware not let let me -- Coleman who is without viable. For the Minnesota Vikings -- yankees' home. I think it you know both coaches this week it is about this game now relates amazed vehicle for them. Basic thing you know it regain the -- and you look at that night. The Saints go to San Francisco -- -- -- gave -- and I voted for a moment later Falcons and they -- Carolina. At the top. -- -- -- Green -- that we are there yeah. So what -- -- I don't think it is what he did some really to -- them about -- Would -- deep into reality. You know he's been billed this as a pivotal game it's the first game of the season the unit built them a great job. It marketing the last year's NFC championship game. But put it -- dazed by the Dolphins are gonna -- -- ago. Well portable -- field if they're going to be -- their -- good football team and its image of the Saints have got beat oh and you know. Never win the Super Bowl -- September. But you can set the stage especially opening night. In advance of football league at what they. You know detect data to haters here but I hope I don't get it don't -- song all night long at -- they played that in -- -- He's to blame I'm here at all here if you -- going to be a hit the -- made. Just not that good -- -- stick in my head. You know but it spirit -- it gradually it's still a great great state football team well there. -- think great you know everyone has question mark to look at both teams to product training camp new injuries. What you -- at the Vikings secondary completing going against the number one offense in the last four years. I made -- of the movements or the Bulls as far as I know being an ex NFL quarterback you always trying to attack. We obviously got -- deep -- in the past Tracy -- team would that be. If Patrick Robinson of the game -- I look at our show Allen had been looking at the same -- going to quit. Who you think that's still a ways to go just before you don't need not be picked on this board that might be taken him. Young players but it it it is it that bad. Brees. In this building has bit and it without west so be it man. Without question go into the greens it receives the public's right. Now the Vikings on the other hand had to -- hit it with -- to speak. That starts up front with the defense mind you -- now -- that we did you -- -- -- -- yeah. Hopefully make it lives. Responsible when you it -- base. It is if we talked about earlier you know if you -- -- -- -- -- but. Knock it down touched him up a little bit. You know so that he thinks about it support. That he. It's like -- that took three quarters priesthood you know top seed in France is now -- -- -- corporate deal conspiracy after seven months ago. Uncle -- inactive but it's it's going to be a -- -- those young guys in the second period trying -- me. You know the most prolific -- -- home. -- -- Learn things and we saw two years ago Reggie Bush went off on this team as a punt return. What surprises the Vikings made from a coverage unit that. One thing we know -- you're the first -- game today NFL's season started off. You see more -- -- kickoffs were brought back than any other time because they unit hasn't played you know as a unit together. How -- the Vikings special teams coverage units in in pre season. My big big big big ups and downs just like those teams because Chris Chris who was one of the guys that. You know was one of the gutters he's down Cedric Griffin played on that. You don't let punt cover team to be your heart is expected -- -- the only thing that you know as a -- can do is the way it's written for it if if it it Bobby you know this gives up -- -- wanted -- support it but yea baby if Reggie Bush. Did go to the sidelines it gets the football -- -- -- -- putters it's the end of the ball deep would be -- pop -- but. And he does not touch the football. Heading Greg look at and a positive and a negative obviously you look at this and are always the quarterback of -- that the blind. John Sullivan he's dealing with -- calf injury even though and stifles the that you want their comments when he makes all the calls on the line. That being negative but the positive I mean I kind of told Saints fans. What we think it's none of the Philippine quarterback of the defense. It has to be a big boost that that a Vikings and their comments have been eating it has been. Back at them middle linebacker it's like considering knew he wasn't there come playoff time -- get this thing. You're you're absolutely right it was believe believe. The first game daddy tickets to be back this first series that sit in San Francisco. The first seven plays DJ Gibson made the first seven tackles was unbelievable the first place that this at the 49ers ran. It was a pulled it off it seven out of the yet. It was a great emotional lift battle that you know there's no hits an idea. You wonder you know how -- is good response from such a debilitating injury problems that he had in the east yeah here's. You know I said don't let the field at once what are the most. Brad -- That I had never seen an offensive football league almost bringing you know this outlined. In this organization to tears because we all do. That was just going to be security Hampton ten years but listening to him respective schools beat it is if nothing sort of miracle. And it -- about. John Sullivan had senator Howell the third my kids because you know they gonna wanna run the -- why I mean I I sell the pity it Peterson. To me considering the -- would you look in the pre season they gave up four point three yards a carry that being in the first half. With that no void unit and then also get the night they gave him over seven yards on -- Vilma. Did play and they need. But it seemed like the strategy. It was the -- he visited the -- -- they'll let up on the field -- could see him having filled. A Patriots needed to again 3035. Carries but my concern when you look at the Vikings. John Sullivan. I -- did he get play the level that he needs to. It's fitting that you know we started from the middle work it out and he is he ready to go and establish that run -- -- Peterson liked it quite as -- trying to do. Well -- your your your point is well taken it it will be a big speaker it is. It's not be the quarterback of that -- lap pass to baker calls didn't want. Standpoint will we can't hold up because you know it's different -- the way it did or practice. You know there's something different about games he now if not so let's not go. You know they could spear -- a little bit with -- -- -- -- it's done a great job. The course of the season coming giving spirit John when he was hurt now. It's natural position is guard but in rare I gotta tell you guessed it hasn't been just read it yet. The Vikings have built that. That backup center it can't be career I don't think we don't let but the confidence that -- this team. Brett Favre. Ager he does an actress best ever done so there's no question about it that he is the gap. That is Vikings and a -- Greg Coleman Greg thank you so much of the hill they have a great fall down there tonight. Our guest -- behave yourself. All right Greg all right he's Bobby candidates might be -- yeah double B it's a good night countdown ticked off we have got to get out of the Saints and the Vikings turned out with them headset. Hey they're not at all. -- -- Radio network. Back to devote my countdown to pick all along with the -- if anybody bad. And -- -- -- -- and it's a concert by expert Mike this team unity he the well. He has a record breaking contract. He's an all pro a Pro -- and a world champion -- -- that god. Gary Evans has quickly become one of the best in the National Football League ever to wear black and -- beautiful. -- out that before -- Christie Garrett -- a good job reading it is all how crazy the Vikings in game one of the season. Think too much has been made a rematch then that is the NFC title game think people make too much about that their -- offseason when the schedule came out. Alone amount they saw -- not think as a huge game is definitely rematch NFC championship so. But you won't be watching and you know allowing that is the you know the first game -- off the new season. You know song you know as well -- interest in his modifying game is not a good players on both sides of the ball looking forward to how much stock has it been this week about. You know curtailing the emotion it's gonna be with his game with the it was a -- dropping in on stuff -- the -- I'm sure. You know those guys and we believe Jack LDL he has lobbying me is going to be a lot of motion minutes which no way is Izzo -- be good emotion we won't be at home Nubian dome -- -- reject though like you said the Ben's going drops off. Won't be a good feeling at the same time we know we won't keep our poise and -- out there and take -- business you guys really keep drew pretty clean last year in the NFC title game against a very very good front seven for the Vikings. Can you revert back to last year's. Plan are you gotta change something I mean has our in the I mean it's not really too much to change those -- offices -- offices of Columbia's -- so. You know you just gotta go back look at film and find some things that you do well and put that we did well. Notice I know that's what I'm doing and just understand -- one -- -- and different things out there too so. But that's just -- just you know is not really too much game -- a watch on this game and got the pre season game and actually played and so you know just compared to you know adjust on the fly. How much of that is going to be a factor in in the first game mean when you don't have that symbolize -- the final line now being a veteran. In the first game they have been through several of now that you see a lot of things he didn't see they be last year or in the pre season. Oh -- definitely you know you're gonna get a few things that -- -- Obama on -- you know -- Scott you know see how you played against a person and you know try to just make sure you have your stuff -- you know your stuff right you know -- you're gonna set I -- protect what you're going to do and I just don't let them dictate the game you know you -- take -- all. Some people are maybe. Saying that you guys are under more pressure. Would you agree or disagree with that because you guys have dealt OC noted slight to prepare for a big gain their wants to make this into a big game they forget in February outplayed in the pretty big game. Yeah I don't see you know we don't feel Noah added pressure you know room go out there and do we do -- says god there and play harder play fast on me. You know and the -- is this football and -- game -- -- physical scores in the got to got to be physical whether the pressure wise you know I don't. Everybody's been talking about you know how we came to Brett Favre and you know I might come after us but you know -- -- game football and I gotta you gotta protect so. Unless the guys feel like they might take some cheap shots and Andrew because of they feel like you guys did that -- Brad -- Goes not a hundred no cheap shots you know we do we got to do a Friday you know nobody has -- -- -- -- on us to solution for Jarvis a lot thinks they can appreciate. And he can't become business ultimate right it in the game. And you don't make cheap when the games wells added -- still gonna have -- attempting to do -- not successful running the ball it looked like it. I still think we need to be that 25 to thirty rate is -- -- it can't. But let out to be honest with set up the road with the past. Yeah I got that team throughout the ball in the end set up the run Gavin doesn't because they had -- -- Cleveland there's solidified itself out they are against the run. Davis -- -- an NFL standard Bobby becoming only team there's been 1970. AFL NFL merger to rank number one. Against the run for three consecutive seasons. This is those things don't always. Now once again they stifled opponents. On the ground and owed nine despite losing their number one ranking for the first time the Warriors the fight it still finished number two. In rush defense not if you look at the team. As if you look at -- since 2006. An NFL best average only given up 74 point nine yards a game. Opponents to averages 3.3 yards per carry. Over the last. Four season you know you're trying to get four yards a carry I I tell you what you still have to have that -- have -- things gonna have to be patient but our agreement might. Pass the ball instead of the ride to get them attempts which -- -- sort of ball fifty times the team but I can't even as the game where you might see and read. Throwing more high high thirty -- for both parties versus maybe a little third on the opposite. Yeah opposites but actively but obviously it even if from my in my notes but isn't there. Eight it's about coaching trees -- coach who -- and who coached him when you definitely QB. Goals horrible call -- W doing here today that is Ivins thought stop and her in the -- I'd never vote yet. About two days before the Saints drafted Johnathan Sullivan Al's -- gonna call the coach Kevin Williams at Oklahoma State. City till we might if they pick it's element that -- most beat. Going to be it did -- -- all broke with the guy that got hit Kevin Williams. He's the best defensive tackle out of have a coach Shula felt he was absolutely positively right. He's that this guy had a great morning you can rush to quarterback from inside and that's what separates him from a lot of treatment and I think you all -- right on about. You don't like if I'm correct gas to coach Pat Williams -- and him. This -- line coach Bill Johnson no Bill Johnson goes on in the states are damaging the highest paid guard. -- full or -- a called Knicks got a job tonight though both could be the best guard low you don't you don't guards whatever it. As the duel number one NFL with his gonna be their biggest challenge -- the year. Who's gonna win or they can take care of the williams' -- know that's a big challenge but you've still got to tip to run the football but I actually think you got exploit. The Vikings secondary. It seemed like Mike said we -- -- -- instead of the run push rod Allen. That's the match no doubt because that they can get pressure that's where it's gonna come from. And you look at this -- my sugar Ray Allen and stich gone -- this stuff is still with European Adam. That it gave up a -- The Ray Allen -- if you can just speak a ray Howard who you look at time might Ray Edwards had four sacks. Green give the Cowboys it was a -- it's playoff record he would have on it's it's it's gone so votes stich go home. And bush tried got to step up a pass protections all right that's the case to anybody -- -- -- -- and -- 98 I'm the the let's Boston's second sports station identification. This that the New Orleans Saints radio network. I -- along without Crowe's gladiator in my materially I'm Deke Bellavia we get down get down we are a little over thirty minutes. Thirty minutes away it's open module -- rolled next time. Duke kickoff between New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings. Right here all on the New Orleans Saints radio network. I coach accounts for real against Minnesota Vikings and then you guys played them back in January but how important is it to make yours just one game he can't -- fifteen -- -- and once -- -- Well you know I think our team understands that knowing. In order to have a good season you've you've you've really got to approach it with the the only. The only game that task and that's that's tomorrow night's game -- tonight's game so. Our approach is that way and our focus is on Minnesota and and that's the only game we can play. -- and it's the first game can you go back to last -- some of the things he were able to do and have success with ours it kind of the music game playing got to be a little different from that. Well I think your your mindful that in the first game that -- we play an imperfect game never perfect game you're always searching for that perfection but. You know the key is that. The years that are made you want to be made the full speed effort and energy you try to eliminate the medal winners especially in an environment like what we're gonna have so. You know. We don't ever picked up from where we left off we really try to start all over again with a base fundamentals so. How well we block and tackle -- what we protect the football those are all the things that are gonna contribute to winning or losing this game. What is it about the Vikings defense that that could potentially present problems well their front seven probably as good as there -- -- football when you look at third down linemen in their linebackers that that's a group that's been together they're confident they've got power they've got -- let the system. It's extremely talented that they can. Stop the run as well as anyone in apply pressure in the passing game and so. That's the one thing immediately that comes to mind Winfield is gonna run support corner in and a guy that knows football. Is is one of the better corners we'll see so. We've got to build handle that they and they've done it real good job. Over the last few years of of causing offenses problems and they present a challenge us coaches should be emotional night with -- drop -- FL kickoff weekend and on stuff. Do you have to talk to the players or do you talk to the players about the harnessing their emotions well fortunately we've gotten expert experience now and playing in big games whether it's Monday night games NFC championship game Super Bowls you know our guys understand. Really had to keep the focus in and understand. Understands you know they understand what wins so certainly we address that we talk about you know even the traffic in the city on game day and making sure we've got a plan to get their -- time in. But I but I think they the locker room under understands clearly what's most important -- special thanks for the time thank you. And it's a -- photo Christie Garrett with the Saints coach. Sean Payton final moments you guys before we go into the stadium for one of the most anticipated games in franchise history. Mike let's take a look at Joe thought Spurs so vote because of back voting your body to break the game down. Saints defense against the Vikings. He -- I think I agree with. Even dawn of a big belief in -- quarterback world that you gotta be physical with Adrian Peterson right because that a fact no more tests that the political. So we give parts inactive. Every issue -- -- it was going to be -- running back from his built for the Giants. So Albert Young is at number two guy and -- Kayla battled a lot of significant carries last year. Make sure we knew he would Adrian Peterson you hit him in hitting good but I think the key in this game is. Not to let Adrian -- wobble in the first quarter like it done a lot of -- a lot of running backs do. From time -- time I think that's the very key in this game slowing down agent could be in real physical with him. Because there was not much backing him up. Yes a big team if you look Adrian flashier and you know 25 carries. He had a -- to 22 yards they -- touchdown yeah at 33 brought in Rio Robles to charge for almost and a third and Bob male golfer so far so bad habits again did you give them quit. You know that 122 yards. But I still think it's gonna come down because I think these teams are championship teams. Who's gonna win the turnover battle when all's said and done whoever's plus one. Plus two or is gonna win the game even if you even. The Saints still win -- believe. But don't be that negative -- -- category that's -- crucial I have about five and his focus and -- -- it will go make him right now saints' offense taken on. The Vikings the well you know I just think give Drew Brees time that the focus he will exploit. That -- -- secondary but you also have to be committed to the run I agree that might like you said earlier this might be a game that you pass the ball to set up the run. It would surprise me do you drew throws the ball high thirties low forties. We still have to have those rushing attempts even though he gave you might not be successful. Still have between 25 and thirty carries when the -- all said and done. The last laugh at a small cornerbacks Antoine Winfield is a good cover cornerback but he's five feet Asher -- spot non. Article capitals cornerback too much smaller receivers downfield but I think about what -- brought up this correct I think given him time to throw the football but. I think against the Vikings the key to success is. You gotta be able to set up the run with the past you've got to have success -- at a time right now -- go to new special teams there are very important. You know ten years ago Wallace you'll maybe lead twice because the first round that you don't -- -- Let the -- on this deal and I'd love Brett. I think the Saints at the advantage here you have a really good -- under pressure and he's proved that. Thomas horse that's done a great job as a -- I think Reggie Bush tonight. Really shows up big on a big stage of his career into today what would you think about you think about him. Dayton Kim Kardashian. And him put UST basically on the death penalty yeah this is an important game for him in front of a big audience. I think Reggie Bush has a huge night tonight and I think it starts of specialty. And you know I'd be in my ability that also concerns me and obviously we would have probably -- -- Florida and on the -- -- messing with Percy Hartman. With Percy hill apartment very similar to Reggie Bush as a rookie he sent a bike it's -- with 2081. All purpose yards last year he was chosen NFL. Offensive rookie of the year. He's -- kick returner. What do we struggled. Last year which we are dead last and -- -- -- -- -- with that lasted like coverage and in how we kind of stuck. In the pre season with kick off -- -- in the well yeah our ticket to deep well -- the -- all Kate returned returned -- -- -- -- Hartman. It -- the big play guy just like Reggie Bush. So hopefully Reggio happened and total mercy tonight all right here we go in the guy's predictions the Saints a five point favorite over under around 48. My I'm UC 311 excites. I just think this night to win this game but he scores a touchdown a field goal. And it and listen to average wood about 31 almost thirty what yeah game lecture I'll go right back to that 31 when he. Oh New Orleans over missile yeah and if you look at them like it's a right behind the Saints a 29 point four points a game I'm definitely gonna go over. But I think this thing to gonna cover the spread economical with. 3423. Saint double digit victory very impressed by that's gonna do it for. Me -- was a cup makes it is the game action heavy -- tonight at the locker room show. Visit to the point out to indicate to -- -- by the -- day of the Atlantic eating seafood on -- -- Leo and they'll -- In the world famous French Quarter. Taking your phone calls -- giving you feedback on tonight's Saints. Minnesota Vikings game but up next events crew and pro football things out of reporter Chris again but I was hoping guys on. And the voice -- go to Orleans Saints didn't listen to bring you the first game of the 2000 CNN. National Football League season Minnesota Vikings. At New Orleans Saints in the Louisiana Superdome. It starts now right here on the New Orleans Saints radio network.
