Friday evening and welcome to the fans and the -- the pro life and you witness the Wallace Saints opened the -- and it felt like -- easily fourteen and nine win over the Minnesota Vikings last night. Also it is set for tomorrow night as the LSU Tigers open conference play against Vanderbilt. Along with saint color analyst looking guys on I am Christian caricature chance the sound off on the black and gold -- Final Four to 60. 187 New York toll free 866889. At 0870 is that number to get involved in that would talk at -- football here also talk a little LSU tiger football preview. Their matchup tomorrow in the conference against Vanderbilt. A little later on in the program hokey. -- welcome a Saints color analyst looking guys on in who wasn't quite what we expected -- -- -- fireworks that maybe everybody anticipated that given last year's NFC title game but it is nonetheless a very impressive -- -- the season at fourteen and nine victory over Minnesota. Some might need to turn -- and again here myself and it and so. We have on the anybody is okay. Not -- that ultimately it. You look at the way that -- he didn't -- last night and it technically that weight that is for the rest of the season. This is obvious all -- I'm not worried about -- opposite that's gonna come round. You Robert Meachem misses the path to the end zone. In the first quarter I think it was just barely over throws every -- what what -- turned out be. You know about a 75 yard touchdown. Pass right there Garrett Hartley missed a couple of field -- told me -- gonna happen in every ball game. But boy the way that -- that late last night that's not excited I mean -- at oracle went for the football. When you consider -- you Peterson was -- hundred yards. A -- back that is probably the best in the league earlier custom that got -- honored Nady and -- takeover -- have any idea exactly so. Oh what they did. You know did a -- they set. Separate or one time but look at the time that -- in space in the even on the Jonathan Vilma inception. I curry -- papers point. The arc on the ball he's looking -- the ground because he didn't hit my old harper and and that's that's what it takes that last. Sometimes -- -- hits and all like that means more than a segment because at quarterback realizes that. Right somebody broke down and attack it in Pawtucket info on the ball. Those of those hits -- refuge for those things start and up into the game and and I think that's what you saw last. Pokey for the third consecutive year the Saints took the opening possession and marched down the field than -- put points on the board board is so what happened last night. As Drew Brees found -- Anderson is crazy. I think after that -- it was. You were expected okay were -- CIA we were we were thinking you know you're talking about that would fifty points on the board after. That would take -- five plays and just. Lesson three minutes or right around pregnant something like that to move the ball down field it was a I mean that was his teenage saints' offense quicker read -- UNC a lot more of that. Before the season's over with and -- -- act -- go back to the performance that the defense did last night but -- -- Brett Favre. Adrian Peterson. The -- Shiancoe and Bernard Berrian I mean they've still got some weapons on that offense. I know Sidney Rice is not there but. At least in my. Estimation. That. That's almost like taken every intention or. Robert Meachem -- Marcus Colston one of those guys out this night lineup it it hurt you when it does just completely decimate gardening you've still got. A heck of an office of -- club out there so. I think. I think to saint made a strong statement last night that -- there in the distance. It. Go back to back in history cannon says that they won't just because not to -- he's done it but they -- be -- be reckoned with that defense is the way they were last night. Pokey is the State's office opening up the first half. Donnelly all through the air. And yes second half they get that ground game. In Minnesota news that they had to run the football there that last drive to run the clock out. And it's a very good front second in league last year stop the run anyway -- that they were able to run the football and knowing. With all 7000 fans plus of Minnesota Vikings knowing that the run was coming -- able to ground out grind out the clock there. And that's another thing we agree -- they needed all with Pierre Thomas on the that we NC. -- -- -- he had a carrier to. In last night's game Chris ivory was out. You Heath -- that's the only ball he touched last night was when nine he got that look at them flat. Every so big third down conversion they absolutely and all those kind of things start and that you know league doesn't have to be pretty it doesn't have to always be -- an opposite field. I can remember watching it don't throw novels that route -- just how good that he truly was and today it's a and we got shot on keep those guys than seventy points for me you know I. I think it -- like this you know we're so accustomed to seeing 3835. Shoot out on this team. Since something's been here its lowest output offensively and that they don't win yet to win the Saints have had essence don't hate it here and I think it went like this could potentially do or serve you well are better down down the road. Be thinking like isn't you know grind it out and not -- into -- shoot out to show that it looked weakened defensively. They can hold them back they can hold it an offense like that like the Minnesota Vikings down for that long a period of time. Well I need to me it's fair reminiscent. Of the Buffalo game last year. Appear Thomas only had two carries in the first half. But then he comes back with seventeen carries in the second half and -- it basically just took it -- your -- so helpless when you should know there on the opposite sideline and you went. They're involved we know they're gonna run it and we can't stop him. In Miami to me that's a great feeling in the world cricket field. We have does it just may get a two minute warning and it would just taken me which is exactly what to saint -- so. You're right it's it's it's encouraging win. And I really think if this defense this year is going to be better than a lot of people. Including myself gave him credit for me. 504260187. -- toll free 866889. 087 if you a couple of -- football welcome your phone calls gives you take all last -- -- for that a lower seats in. No hope you'll gladly entertain that phone call and I will -- step away for a second. This is the fans at a pro where you that would -- they should get a chance to sound off right here on WW LA MFM -- dot -- -- -- that bonded by anybody -- your. Welcome back to the fans in the pro. -- -- -- -- color analyst -- guys John I am Christian Derek desert Devils have been of Jonathan -- big interception. Forced by safety Roman Harper on -- blitz there -- the Saints were able to cash in on on some point there. Nonetheless though Jonathan Vilma had a pretty self solid night last night four tackles and all of that and Patterson. Well you know I didn't that injury that he sustain their couple weeks ago yeah we wouldn't exactly sure what the extent of the injury was but -- they would. There was no ill effects of it last night and me he was all over the place in -- that right there I mean he's governor tied in the heat and drag right right right to across the middle that. Couldn't had better coverage in. You know could Brett Favre made a better throw but yet to but it it would have been sold out. So far out in front of the tiny insults yet Johnson them factory LME's. He's a stud when he -- field. The Saints struggling in the kicking game Garrett Hartley missed too few novels a guy who is 888 for eight in the pre season and had a number of big kicks last year they're Super Bowl run obviously. Kicking them inconceivable that setting a record for three. Forty plus yard field goals and Super Bowl 44 down and Miami any concern over them. I wouldn't think so. I mean he got proved that he can kick in the clutch. And let it last night it was just you know golf night. I'm not saying that look I never kicked -- football in my life. Especially when it amounts to in the -- I don't maybe he just took for granted you know we've got me as a coach it was no problem with distance or anything like that but. I guess those guys are kind of liked golf and they can shape their shots that he has some sandy hook -- approved fate on -- whatever the case maybe I'm not sure but. And it just didn't work out last night but. -- -- what really counts is what I got doesn't pressure packed situation needle like they had those six points to. -- -- you score a little bit and not worry so much about well and extend likened it to balls it is what happens if they don't score you know now you're in that situation. As an offense that you got to intern. Take football downfield going in and point to adopt come out last micro issue is not does not get -- mean that. That was two solid defense is out there and you're just not gonna marched the ball up and down field bike like that so you'd like to have them tuition but. I Indian pass to go back to what here partly done in pressure packed situations and he's come through so. I don't think it's and victories in -- to panic button. Coach Sean -- address in the media here at saint camp earlier today was asked that question about Garrett Hartley will hear his response this guy's kicked in some big spots for us and needless to say in. And so it's. It's something we'll get back to work on in the room you know he'll handle it through this challenge him. -- it's just that. Coach -- also adding that the snapped. The placement was good with new all the Thomas -- that they care Carly just rushed it a little bit hooked it left and it's the guys you know that again we said it. Look at what he's done it down the stretch last year and in the pre season. Value you know and you look at you know in the -- town we get to watches the specialty practices. Out here whether they were on that the grass fields. Or they were in the end in the building and it hit 55 yarder on a regular basis you know -- sixty yarder that one -- -- practice they were. Like coach and man was an okay we -- -- one. -- -- We want the ball fall short and two that we can kind of workmen return vote. Of -- field goal in Garrett Hartley actually put it through the upright and sixty -- -- -- -- ball would come up short so. It's but you don't like it when things like that happen but. Again and it ideas I go back to -- currently what he's done in the past and in the game and he won the game. Against a bike it's an AFC championship be at 340 yards in Super Bowl I mean -- don't get any more pressure than that insults. I. I just chalk it up as he had an off night. Final Four to 60187. -- toll free 866889. 0871. To the conversation on Saints football talk about the fourteen to nine win by the defending world champs over the Minnesota Vikings last night. In the NFL season opener to the phone lines ago. Rebecca on a -- Europe WWL go -- Rebecca. -- hear about it -- You go -- Man I am here you know it would agree -- and you know. I am staying with -- game but coming. Play ten minute in poor second that are right there are. That left calf tightly linked to bail out. Look you what they BAA. Coming neighbor and why am waiting. A good achievement you know. -- -- She's gonna -- mailman there -- which refused although as we get talking about that four minute offense. The Saints that you're so used to seeing the Saints ripoff -- of plays nose high scoring affairs. But again. Their ability to run the clock out like that against that front seven pretty impressive and around. I told somebody earlier baker should not take eleven more just like that. You take it did it doesn't matter hit it Aqua net I mean I didn't finally gain to be born and all that thought the fans were. We're into the game for the most part of that look in the very middle part of the game right here when neither team to a whole lot. You know you just cannot feel the the fans get a little antsy out that they want some big happened and never yet but the fact. Of the matter is it it was just too good deep it's a close play against one another and that's wrong with good deep into football. After the all eyes Eagles Stephens element here on WWL. The. -- -- -- -- There are it and they now you know line be quiet here. At one point one caller and all the quarterback looking -- -- And because I don't know over. You know it's that you know it. Go out and does it in the date but no 100 gave -- speed and and credits -- you know because the -- -- also think you know take -- tango and opinion to give it a little credit we're. Justine is one of those situations depends on what's that venture on if he appears Saints fans -- -- we took the ball away if you the other team. -- -- their fan base that when you say. Howell cool we did if we don't know the answer if we don't have that fumble you know what it all counts and actually ball belted -- -- in the saint work on. Strip in the ball ever since Greg Williams got here and it paid dividends last year form. And it in Italy's 21 game it on the same thing. Donald Chris joke Joey Michael Justin -- in due to a Final Four to 601870. Toll free 866889. It's doing it's evident to play action. Ended up being the only sacks on the night for the -- -- 65 but nonetheless they put mr. Favre under enough pressure force in the move his feet in the pretty indecisive in the populace. Okay I mean he made some throws last night that TDs. And it was not characteristic of Brett Favre -- just way off target and it's yet one thing the to -- -- go you know okay it and maybe that guy should have caught -- deal as I mean -- -- could put some steam behind the ball hit. But I mean he does that makes it's over market where was -- don't want that spoke voted take a mean way get a. I have to yes that that would be. When he missed yeah any camp or four weeks attorney kitten case to -- little rusty. It unity cabinet count -- Peterson and you know the past it was not very sharp albeit in missing. That he writes for the Minnesota vikings' Percy are one grant us. Yeah and but again I go back to what I told you earlier is that you know it's like taken one of the -- of the -- to -- it -- shoot some very good. It it's not like it just decimate your office not to have that guy out there in the they're still equality opted to team and Chester Taylor was gathered took a lot of the the -- last year especially in passing downs we got naked. Oh what's very good at picking up blitzes and coming out of the backfield catching the ball I don't know that that's Adrian Peterson forte but. Yeah I mean he's not a bad receiver race not -- in Asia it ain't like when. When I was down theory if you plan with George Rogers Earl Campbell. Both got off to feel completely on third now that you you'd innings and screens and such an army. Terrific ball -- is just not very good pass receivers so. It's just and then be something that I guess the Vikings and had to adjust to as the season goes along but. Anyway you know not having Sidney -- -- it looked as I took full advantage of that did it. Anti there was no way around we didn't have one of our top receivers the Vikings would -- an elephant absolutely not in the statistics. That the Brett Favre was -- in mobile quarterback. But he was -- he's always been able to -- oh yeah pocket and it last night it looked like he wasn't quite as quick -- weigh -- on that ankle injury -- still got a lot to do with that you know me it I think it they said that. That surgery was performed in May. And that's not the odds are critical -- tend to get over any entries typically speak in the one guy gets an injury during the season. And know how -- you go to playoffs anything up as soon as the seasons with. Then that's when you have the surgery in those extra few weeks and valuable in the recovery time any rehab. And I don't think that Brett Favre really had. The opportunity to get that thing 100% back will rehab. And he still makes some some -- like throws waited the only Brett Favre can do it but. On the other hand and he said it Will Smith brought it out from the -- David he just didn't seem this move just didn't he seemed a little uncomfortable in the pocket. And a lot of that's got to do it affected. You mentioned missing training camp and then probably an ankle injury. Final Four to 601870. Or on Hokies nickel. 86689. I don't I don't problem I have -- a -- it used to try to figure -- try to dial this. The phone -- ago -- Joliet native failure on WW ultimate -- They got sorry for the -- I wasn't what it did it. We. That's a chair and -- right there -- -- -- What lifted them a couple of comments and do it then. First go like -- -- -- ruby. Ability and good special teams marry. Me. Yeah you're right in the game. Wow well and expect. Well he looked very where -- But that Romo. -- that's been through the middle to. -- -- -- -- -- It looked like that's -- it changed the acting play in the point where they are cute at fault here. I don't know if I'd like PG comment. Well -- I don't know the date change they're -- game planned. You would Adrian Peterson had seventeen carries last night right. It is for 87 yards of legal was. I don't know Miami gave Brett what it looks and I. Like Taylor and electronic a -- even in the to be likely -- -- obviously when the starkest established the run early in -- with a -- the second half it was kind of polar opposite of the Saints who started with the -- all with a run. Yet in. Root for the well good people. Well -- dates and he played twenty years in this league you get care about after awhile and either. So. I don't know but -- out they elected that you did bring up good point about Courtney Roby. And you remembered their few weeks ago. Everybody's on out all these. Actually on Adrian Arrington you know he's so especially looking at you and inactive for last night's game because he can't play in special teams. In back to -- Courtney Roby. If that's what makes in the value members of this team is that he Gaudin and make tackles can return -- also you know -- I'm tired of hearing about. They're based on about how special Adrian sanctity has. He can't get on the field on game day. -- -- -- Quiet but very great exactly exactly everybody it to stat sheet what he does especially not opt out Adrian is not -- -- I don't. And okay and okay as we saw the art training camp according to a we started at. You season what you -- college doesn't exactly I mean I don't have anything against it and Adrian Arrington and just and that when you look at the saints' depth at wide receiver. He's not gonna go out there replacing those guys and lives there injured. And then -- bulb but come game day that you don't have any choice doesn't sitting down because he can't contribute on special teams. He -- color analyst hokey guy job Christian Garrick we're gonna go to Derek Joe Chris Lawrence the light body to the Final Four to 60. 1870 -- toll free 866889. Zero lake city this is the fans of the pro on WWL AM FM Canada dot com. I thought linebacker play it was very good I mentioned. Just at the onset -- about the tackling. You know -- it was inspiring to see Vilma played the way he did. Both Shanley. And -- Juan did a great job and Scott went back to the will. -- along came minutes salmon then you know we had snaps were Marvin Mitchell was in the game we played a lot of different people. In in a number of different packages. And and I thought. The play of our linebackers was very good com. In regards to Malcolm you know making his first start. He had a real good game. He did he did an outstanding job and in some of the run support looks. And yet got his hands on balls showed good range was in the right spot and we were real and Kurds with his first effort. Saints coach Sean Payton talked about his linebacker corps and safety Falcons tickets after. World champs defending or chance. Knocked off the Minnesota Vikings fourteen and nine in the NFL season opener last night in hokey. Point two tackles from that linebacker corps and only want -- -- safety but that's a good thing -- estate deal has. Once solo and one assist that beat the linebackers to get it done that you. Think Roman Harper had four solo one assisted tackle at 500 but I mean Romans is strong safety at me he's supposed to be late. Yes it is that's what you know they call the down safety of the gathered in the box and that's what you want him to do you want him to get in there in mixed it up but those people that think that that's. That's the thing that benefits. The free safety back there it's -- Darren Sharper -- me he's just infielder he gets it back beauty you know. All right go left whatever he thinks quarterback might be trying to do with the ball but. It's not necessarily a bad thing when you say that you linebackers and each team because Lotta people wanna have to -- oh well let me begin beyond him. Well there's only -- that befits a setup that what those people on and doing their. Occupying blockers and not let him get to the linebackers so damage to one yard run. Linebackers stepped up makes the play it just totally brought up so I think -- pretty active night by by the entire. Defense. Last night and you know I don't really want this -- out just one position I thought the entire defense would really good last night they played fast. They got to the football only had the one turnover but. Like they would trying to strip that is anything like that ill one of the best running backs in the league. Under a hundred yards stifled a good options out there I am very excited when I've seen from the heart beat him in last night's game. -- that you start the center Ellis in his third season committed you know three tackles solo through assistant head sacked yet. Bad she and then look at the -- in. You know in in that's not the that's not really your responsibility. Is and interior linemen like -- that. Jamaica whole bunch -- what -- job is in there and used up blockers on the offense so DiFelice that are right behind you can floated the ball and make the plays well so. That -- you keep -- -- production like that considered Kallis at me you -- start and shall pull people Pro Bowl ballot. The light in Lafayette a year on WW LT to call the fans and the pro. To right. Hello this -- the -- going to. Is pretty good game. You know about New Orleans in -- in use in eighteen years and oh. It out of jail last night every time minute though that didn't -- -- that everything and the thing about them from doing it there's an average and the Saints did there. Most -- right that is integrated now is that in the -- Ribery but now there's this -- you know Padilla. And it went on for dig down to the game was -- it I think they look pretty so. I'm not that impressed with that that they had that dale Reid Terry is that we that. Whole idea if you gonna if you can't take the shot that -- name. -- hope they'll establish. That Reggie Bush there he settled his. But 00 team. I was pretty impressed with. Played it -- who I think it branded the bill. In the background there. That was just good timing that they've seen it in the yet won an element that is that don't -- enough over the whole team practice or Utah led to touchdowns through to the chemical that cut down. That -- it -- though it did. About like you know although it again that it was -- but -- yeah. I don't vote against the it was good the the and it -- great it only on Q. I mean Minnesota you know. They got away they gotta do it as it back. Back the offensive mind for the plight gave. But well -- operate and the second there thanks to be -- -- that was about. That's it and I mean I think it's a very good observation that. I like circuit there at the Saints cut those tested you know Christian. The best thing about those -- we were talking about -- Margaret just a minute ago with five tackles. They're not just cover guys you know they don't look at -- -- it might you know they don't pay me come -- run support these guys have come up very need to uniformed parity. And they'll throw their bodies around that I think -- shop and bootlegs out among needs running backs and receivers they're very -- group back there in. And it bums they stay healthy yet again -- quarterback -- I am impressed with the entire defense right now I don't -- single one personnel -- one unit because I think. All holes -- played well last night we got word that can cover lock up 101 and then come up and he would play in run support -- delta today rare helps your linebackers. -- The big part of that that is rare it's Derek Joe Chris John light in you 254260187.

First outing against a good offensive team than the arguably has the the best running back in football and and a and a real good front. We did a good job of of containing them in in. Really for the most part not allowing. -- yardage -- big plays after the catch etc. I was Saints coach Sean Payton talked about -- -- -- the performance last night and it went over the Minnesota Vikings fourteen and nine open -- it felt like this season that was the hot topic. In the locker room today as we had access to the -- but it also the pending labor agreement and the solidarity the solidarity. That sign of solidarity for the Saints and Vikings players as they buy him out it labor agreement but he will talk about that. And more coming up next hour as the fans in the role rules on.
