As -- Glendale Arizona taking on the Arizona Cardinals along indicate game Bobby Hebert and the Bolivia in Bobby. The black and gold can get to their fourth victory in five tries today with a big win and that. And the and set their sights on another division -- -- Sunday in Tampa -- -- big chief I'm an elaborate as a goal on in the pregame show he is how the NFL changes in the way of the dealing with the salary cap. Who you gonna pay or not and you know it's amazing because -- -- the same Cardinals team that we've faced in January. They have eleven new starters I mean think about it you know playoff team you may have that many changes. You know Karlos Dansby maybe one whole side -- -- look what he's doing with the Ravens so I'm elaborate on that but -- the -- had started. On your own -- three in one. Will look to stay -- the -- on the road as they face off against Arizona Cardinals and about two hours at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. Today's matchup will be the first time the clubs have met says the NFC divisional playoff game in January 16. When the a's defeated the Cardinals party by the fourteen. Given an opportunity to hold their first conference championship in franchise history. In the overall series counting the post season this series is tied thirteen to thirteen -- of the say it is the rubber mats with the Saints winning only two meetings between the two teams since Sean Payton became head coach. This of being yards first regular season visit -- University of Phoenix Stadium since it was built for years ago. It's also a meeting of the two most recent NFC champs. And he issued Eagles waved back to win the Cardinals were in Saint Louis with the first content is taken place back in 197. 1967. When you were just so we have a fellow big chief. Physical hard to move to Arizona. Yards has won eight of the eleven battles. As a divisional playoff game versus Arizona in January. The Saints are basically facing a week of Cardinals team that is experience to holes of changes on both sides of the ball. Of the 222 starters in 2000 and eleven are either new to the team. First year starters are starting in and you position. The cards have six new starters on offense and five new starters on defense. On the opposite side of the ball -- they should be able to take advantage of that Arizona defense which is ranked twenty ninth in the league. And one before last in points allowed at 29 point five points per game. And even though the Saints. Top two running backs around in Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush. Yards had their most one ended their most successful run production in the season last week versus the Panthers. With accommodation of Chris ivory and Ladell -- Where they rushed for 121 yards at four point two yards per carry. And that bodes well for the Saints as the cardinals' run defense is ranked one before last. In the NFL given up a 155 yards per game big -- the cards even struggle moral offense. Where they are starting undrafted rookie quarterback. In max hall and lead the NFL with thirteen giveaways. And tied for second in the league with fifteen sacks allowed the arrow is only Arizona really misses future Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner. Where they are ranked thirtieth in their passing game. In another similar one before last Rankin at 31 in total offense. Bottom line big GU -- -- doesn't turn over the ball they should win and a convincing fashion did you think sixty. Yet ninety uh oh you're in 93 -- One in the human we felt he made them older now already -- main guy you know the I'm thinking you close to my age because I was born in 1960 yes we feel like -- close and they have yet when the Cardinals -- his -- of the Saints you know they go way back was in 1967 to win you ball -- was -- who wants.

Good leader who won a lot of games in college is very accurate. I think he's very comfortable.

The Saints and cards may get hot in the desert at 305 this afternoon right here on saint radio. Four on the road in the NFC south I'm Christian Garrick on the New Orleans Saints radio network. All right thank you Christian now back out to Glendale at University of Phoenix Stadium where a sense that I and it's -- guys on Tuesday in the matter good good morning both. Well yes fielded -- -- -- them -- always out there at the house but that yes he -- it says -- kind of a weird -- right here they don't. They don't change time out here in the Phoenix area like we do back at all so. You know it -- do we try to figure out what time it back at home when he is here but. Anyway having said that as expected the retractable roof right here is closed right here at the stadium and but outside really not that bad I heard Bobby talks is -- go about the when he walked out want to when he -- the Saints. There's like stick it is hit out of into an open but -- 84 degrees here in 45% humidity so understand what he's saying about the the dry heat but. Trust me -- today you'll -- -- you have been in the upper nineties he would be pretty warm outside but it's. Bicycles -- here in this return. -- now and you don't okay out right quick you know what I heard Kurt Warner even instead. They'd even have the weather is nice outside because that a crowd noise and in Naples arena. That he wanted to close to trying to get that home field advantage goes at a crowd noise. -- you know I think that they are stat guy Kevin that was it here just a few minutes ago he told me that ever since the stadium has been open he's. That he. This is the read -- talking about that they're played in. That he's only seen the roof open one time he's at the reason was is that some of the fans that would be on the east side of the stadium. But after -- this the if the game wore on let's not get Alou had to have. Everything was just coming right to their faces on the glare -- even the heat was -- look them right in the face. Lot of them both season ticket holders so they -- complaint about that -- say it. Bentley this stars get late in the game we Casey what happened because we've got the -- -- -- so that's why they keep it cold most of the time I guess they do it. A Sunday night or Monday night game that's when they would probably consider. Open up the roof. Did just because they're -- around here will cool off a little bit leaving but. -- large it was how the season ticket holders saying that look we get too much glare back -- when worldly side the stadium. The sun go down on those that we can't see what's happening on the field. I would take making it was poking a little later down on the open heart Rolex Jewelers time. Is one hour one hour and fifteen minutes before kick off between the Saints and the Cardinals to the -- -- -- down -- kick off. On New Orleans Saints radio network. Chemistry is to benefit humanity. -- work in the community here and I area and a variety of ways of giving back. With all organization helps with so many local charities that individual players do as well like Drew Brees. -- he's Brees dream founded. This past weekend though the Saints went out to show how much they cared for local high school football team. On Friday coach Sean Payton. And some football players went out to Vanderbilt can't McDyess who in the home to visit the Vanderbilt at the area of boat team. We're just a couple of weeks ago for students have Vanderbilt high school including two football players were tragically field in an overturned vehicle. Coach Payton -- event of look at the baseball had the post practice conference. It's a variety of things and when asked coach Payton said and. The chance it's been ten minutes with them and I think more than anything else to try to help them think in the event of a camp with the team and their students through a difficult time. And he was great to see him and their team and their families where there is. Where the New Orleans Saints touching those and I community in a variety of ways. And welcome back to about like -- got a kick off he is -- and bear I am a Deke Bellavia 260 white seventy toll free 8668890. Eighths and -- keys to today's game at. Arizona has struggled in the two losses. They have been outscored. 82. To seventeen and 41 to -- last week to San Diego in week 241. To 72. And manner and barely winning go to games Bobby victories over the Raiders and the Saint Louis ranked. What bug big TV in Ohio and lost generated this week. The oh. Nolan Hartley isn't the glorified extra point that we talk about the about the game would genachowski. The Raiders keep -- naked for sixty -- -- -- He and an actual game but he's done and in pregame warm up in practice. What genachowski. The like one in nine yard bugle very similar. To Hartley the last game -- -- -- I'm learning now. He is -- to beat the Cardinals typical caller are fortunate. To be to a two right now they could easily be one. 5042601872038668890. It's in the way of the black and gold coming up their best rushing performance last week shot and in the backfield. But no -- was cared about the -- beds and undrafted rookie free agent. Chris ivory this week the running backs look to get on track once again against the bar club that is one of the worst in the National Football League against the run and the Cardinals defense. One key will be all pro. And Pro Bowl offensive guard for the New Orleans Saints Jahri Evans -- -- report Christie Garrett cartilage -- get his thoughts on today's matchup against the Cardinals. -- week five against Arizona what is it when you look at Arizona's defense there without Karlos Dansby he's no on defense but. What are you -- You know she grew guys know -- -- playing hard storm into the ball and known. You know just being humiliated they did get off to ball quick as they got fast guys and really not you know -- big substituting guys streets all but. But he got the ball well these goats which have to snap count to make sure you know we take him in a second us. With the running in that these guys are average right around 72 yards a game not the numbers -- you guys want but. Arizona struggles at least so far and stop -- rises again and maybe you can sit -- you don't. Oh yeah I mean not a Sosa whom as we definitely wanna. You know be able to run the ball efficiently and effectively and that assumption that we've been working on these last couple weeks -- -- to shoulder as we can. Drew Brees been sacked seven times of four games not quite again the numbers and you guys one yelled get up I think -- last year. He's taken some hits is is there something different that they're doing defenses. I guess you guys that again pressure on drew. I don't think so I mean you know we having -- a couple of different blitzes here and there by the same time you know we -- You know wants our attention and Zito in you know and get the job done you know he says. Yes seven this year and you know -- Antonio -- silicon. Come on you know build on the move quickly here early -- I don't know something that we've been working on enough room to correct it. Stephen slifer a couple of Poland penalties is -- that may be a product of where -- and umpires now standing it's a little harder to get away with some of those holes maybe inside that. He -- to it was a dot com. Some of them was him in the first and I got a rude and agree with a good you know given -- the call mean obviously gets on him for rise back -- to. The same time I -- to know do a better job put myself in position to make those blocks. You guys come out with a win offensively Woody doesn't it. Just you know just you know pay attention Daytona be efficient in the third down efficiency and then moved the ball. Our thanks to. Am avid Saints offensive -- looked to be road graders again today and if facing a defense that has not given up what -- horrific deploy short the game rushing in the Cardinals yet dig they've really struggled stopping the run right now given -- -- 155. Yards per game which is 01 before last in the NFL. And you know we should be out to have success. Running the football -- who we did last week now. We don't average we don't have Pierre but if you look at Chris Simon Ledell Betts and Indy got the job -- we ran for 121 yards and I I look at. Four point two yards average per carry and I think that's key but didn't look at that who we going against in the match ups. You know and in laws Karlos Dansby I mean here's a guy thought that was instrumental and what they were able to accomplish. Last year as a defense would have Darnell Dockett. Who's probably wanted to best. 2007. He leads NFL in sacks with 21. And his seven sacks were the most in the NFL among the -- tackles and owed nine. Sosa not be a challenge for Jahri Evans. You know car on the -- John at the ago when in the middle. So be -- -- You know what he does and he has stepped up in big games that being Darnell Dockett. You gotta realize this he had three sacks in the -- -- against the Steelers and that tied a suitable -- would hall of Famer Reggie White. But the most sacks in his who will Bulls so that's pretty impressive now. They brought in a veteran Joey Porter is another guy you look among active players he has 93 sacks which is second. In the NFL right now he's behind Jason Taylor just ahead of John Abraham -- look most sacks 2008 to the president. And he he's in and and this small class. Where he got to markets where we all know by him 35 sacks and Jared Allen with thirty -- Harrison is still visited there with 29. And Joey -- with 27 and a half. So they have guys that have gotten it done and high level but I really think that they miss a call as Dansby. Right now what else then and done Anquan Boldin obviously. As a receiver. You know and I think even though we banged up in the secondary right now. Their top three receivers only have one -- and he's the best that a best that being Larry FitzGerald. And -- also on the defense they are missing guide it's. A big play guy for them on -- role. Zola yes you know I've -- in the same Cardinals team that you face. In January. As the case it came by BA bad -- Deke Bellavia today's game is being delivered by the satellites and a the official transmission Nevada to the Saints radio network called a satellite center at 504888. Days. To broadcast show is sports network hello Bobby -- I'm Deke Bellavia above -- count down to kick off the Saints and the Cardinals. Turned down the summit set antenna to New Orleans Saints -- radio network. And welcome back and count down kicked off five Bud Light on the saints' radio network audio Domino's Pizza now just in time for the game get the door. Is dominos -- prostitutes on dogs that we have all as soon as well. It's time now for Hokies call we go out to University of Phoenix Stadium. When saint zionist -- -- then is the only one -- to bring those folk he's tall hello hope. A few good big gap by that would be go I would be the one they give you that could all but they would sit there watch and -- more. Warm up now feel lot of pigeon was being paid by. Gregg Williams Sean Payton sky pat in the head trainer bill. Johnson the deepest -- black coach they were down there watching Will Smith that he was going through. -- his warm -- and also Roman Harper. By all accounts it looked like Roman Harper is more -- go that Will Smith I think it's a lot more question mark on the fact whether. Will Smith will be active very may -- active today but. We'll get to that as soon as they give us who's going to be playing today who's not get -- plant but. The coaches and the medical staff paying very close to kitchen -- two guys and a a day what Bobby or hurt -- earlier you know you're talking about. -- Kurt Warner beat you look at that as their go to Arizona cardinals' team right now mean they've. They've really got no offensive firepower at all -- united meet Matt -- is gone Derek Anderson is not the answer back tall. Is -- got a rookie free aging get his first start it. You went Kurt Warner after that beating that he took. In the superdome last year in the play off. The -- got just that vicious hit about Bobby McCray I mean I guess he's figured it was better to go dancing with the stars and seeing stars every Sunday if you know what I mean because. You know he's down there right now to -- -- him because the game today. It's just I mean I don't look at this. -- team right now really have a whole Lotta punch offensively. Contrail roll a mean they do their best defense to players in years past that -- that's it. That's just a huge jump to take out of this. I mean I just I think decisive got to win this thing handily. It's about time who you look at the the cardinals' defense I mean that way down or make it to their run defense pass defense they just can't get to the quarterback. Almost don't think I think today is today that the Saints offense gets on track they hit the ball down the field they get it in the end zone and not settle for field goals and not have those turnovers. And -- you know to me that's puzzling end though you gotta make decisions with a salary cap we get if they are not. But -- look we've faced the Cardinals and and -- you know in the playoff divisional playoff game January 16 basically nine months ago. And the cards have eleven. Like new people -- mutated team first -- start as a starting and you positions. At sixty stars and offensive five new starters on defense. And you ready mention call us then we can you imagine going into this season if the Saints were a playoff team and trying to maybe restructure which you can do. Would not have been Marcus Colston. Jonathan Vilma and and now we don't have -- charm and on true role. That's kind of like their leaders on the team -- -- Longo part of the team I think at Florida Cardinals problems that. All of a sudden they going to be in a dogfight to make the playoffs now those very competitive as far as because it might the only night went to win that in as the US. But the Cardinals -- not even the Cardinals that we've seen in January -- well. Alone nobody I mean it's not even the you know it and it all starts with Duke with the quarterback position and and I and I think that that's a reason they coach Whisenhunt is ski he would he'd sit there trying to figure out. That's why he started undrafted rookie quarterback. Even though the guys 45 years old which is pretty typical for some of the BYU players. Lot of those guys really -- is letting him out. Yeah and you know but did he he sit there he strapped to say. I gotta put somebody out there that may be give this a little bit of a spark there a -- it would -- doing during the week. Is press conference he likes to kids accuracy he likes his poise and broadcast up well. All of that to a good but I mean you know work it's a little bit different then last week would you talk about the the sage polian the Carolina Panthers easily do headed monster running back but those guys have been terrific -- -- it -- that that team has been built around. Would John Fox we're gonna have a strong running game we're gonna have a strong. Defense it was different here with the Cardinals now Tim Hightower good back Beanie Wells good back. But this team was not built that way it was built because Kurt Warner was the quarterback and they just don't have that anymore they still got Larry FitzGerald but. If you if you gets -- -- Jimmy Claussen with a first round pick for the Cardinals are TB. For the Carolina Panthers at this is an undrafted rookie free agent that they -- and after the wolves today. But I mean Ken Whisenhunt has got to do so often to track and figure out it what can I do it my quarterback position who gives me the best chance to win. In division that you -- it is very -- that might do that it is very possibly it probably will win their division -- -- seven record. And I -- -- still conceded taken that approach though if you look right now the Saints -- defense is 26 and not not now if you look at the Cardinals. You know like instead. You know did not really get it done on the all but decided a ball but I still could see him take in this strategy. That we have to attempt to run the ball and get Drew Brees keep them off the field and you look at Beanie Wells coming into the game he missed the first two with a knee injury. But he's averaging five point four yards per carry and then a guy Tim Hightower they got that 12 punch. I mean yeah well remember he ripped off that seventy yard scoring run in the divisional playoff game against but I think. So I still think that's going to be the strategy -- eighty yard touchdown run against Atlanta wanted -- and in nineteen -- still think to protect max hall. That Spurs solve the sixty minutes we got to stop the run and put pressure on next call to make plays in the passing game. And I think they have to capable of that and at this stage still turn over the ball and I mean I don't see how you know -- can be in this game. Well Bobby I know I thought exactly the same thing was gonna happen yesterday -- village beautiful harder it would Diller's Q do they gave up if they want the ball game. But being able to throw it in clutch situations so. I'm not gonna go out a limb prediction didn't think anymore -- always blows up put my face but not may have found the Arizona Cardinals. -- we -- because you would have to look at the success of everybody's head against the Saints so far this year being able to run the football consistently. Keeping a low scoring game and that gives them a chance and fourth quarter. I -- this Hokies -- Bobby -- to going to be this is the countdown to call. On the New Orleans Saints radio network. And welcome back it's about life after having kicked off the unit school is of interest variety in the division it's Chicago ball over. Carolina had to on seventeen to three Cincinnati -- can't debate in the seventh hands and early third quarter but Cleveland team and the Atlanta six. Two of the phones we go don't jinx this about wanting to tone things we won't brown and the -- ago. Maria in the Big Easy Maria thank you for calling the countdown to kickoff. -- -- you -- prediction and I think this thing is not going to be a -- -- 27 pitch game. New breezes aren't in his anxiety. Drew Brees well I think that don't come out being bound yet Murray look you know last year with a double and scoring offense 32 point nine so basically 33 points a game. Right now we're two touchdowns -- that right and twenty points per game it. You know we don't turn over the Balkans we shall we can have a sustained drives and main. We would've scored 2730 against Carolina such thing as a situation. That. I'm right around what you I'm -- in the saints' win thirty to thirteen so 2710 I think that's sounds about right. Timmy big she'd been myriad all the way the -- -- can be in the game. Includes may -- tell you this. Last week real fortunate we -- minus one and we still won the game. But that's that you got to do protect the football we should be able to create turnovers going to gets a rookie quarterback and I and Maxwell. From Maria. In new arms to marry in new laws married thank you for calling about like countdown to kickoff. -- it -- question that. I think I'm slightly that they did we have fifteen -- and did that but the thing. I thought I had the COLT -- fifteen on the injured list so. What they due to injury reporting you don't know it's a game time decision I think we had as much as a team okay. Okay usually have four of five average -- but it scenario forward -- and I as far as who actually will and will not play. Aren't that comes out about a fifteen we don't know I'd marry -- I have to I don't -- The -- -- point you have to deal with injuries because you look at a kiwi banged up in the secondary but the Cardinals a banged up and their receiving corps. Anquan Boldin who was probably the best -- -- two receiver in the NFL would have been an -- receiver he's going to Baltimore Ravens uniform. Playing at a high level all of a sudden Breaston and early Doucet you know from LSU. There's second and third receiver there I'll so I think he kind of it's a wash. When you look at even though we are banged up in the secondary and probably will start packaging Robinson a rookie cornerback is Tracy -- being now. And it probably utilize Randall Gay disease so familiar with. With -- and nickel spot you know covering the slot receiver so I don't see that as advantage it was. You -- it's a rookie quarterback so even though we dealing with injuries there's no excuse going into the Cardinals game. I have a question is cute though in my -- advocates it's kind of if you can them simple minded. But. Not the kind of allotment. I'll know though it -- just excited to maybe go round and. So the question is though. Do we have enough weapons. And more day. Well you mean as far on the opposite side of -- design that -- Yeah yeah yeah no no not a doubt I think the depth we have enough yet even went out Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush now you have to have the rushing -- always one. What age 29 with 29 attempts last week. And Chris Simon Ledell Betts -- -- to 21 yards rushing could look at four point two yards towards him. No we have enough weapons to definitely exploit that cardinals' defense. Which is not very good right now if you look Derek Duane -- in the league. In overall defense -- before last in points allowed given up 29 point five though we did take advantage of that cardinals' defense and absences. Coming back it's about my cat and a kick off on the saints' radio network. -- -- -- -- Ethical boundary where it's NFL analysis I was about eight hours Mike security. Like big games around the league today including Cleveland and Atlanta gone toe to toe right now. The Eagles sure important that we in this league and man -- the second straight week. The Falcons up again you know you -- competition net you know they could easily go from there really have a tough time offensively. Just moved from the football insult pay you know your plate and few people typically what you'd like that the candidate beat steam. But -- Seneca Wallace is not a pretty nice day in the pathetic found some semblance of a running game with Peyton yellow. Former Arkansas all fullback who would -- lost in the mix you know with Felix Jones and -- McFadden so -- Atlanta -- real difficult time in. -- -- just look at chronicle of the week with the Colts -- altering Kansas City. Called hey a win as a win it is difficult to win in this league mussina but scored just happened today. And then you know might now -- we -- this year -- -- on about the parity in the league. And it's it's like this year unlike the years where you might have three of four teams that. Really you don't give them a chance but it seemed like this year than maybe as the Buffalo Bills. You know I've kind of laid an -- so to speak game any game out. And you mentioned the Chiefs and who would have thought after four weeks the indeed only undefeated team. You look at the Detroit lines and I mean look how well the Rams of play and and how I look at the lines in that situation. The Browns -- -- why do you think all of a sudden this year -- -- seems like there's more parity and a -- have in this does give me gained. Bob I think that the quarterback -- it is not nearly as good as it was a year ago. I think it -- clear cut situations and you're goal was how well. -- you look across the week -- and you had great statistics quarterback wide anyway without great balance. If it was the Colts. The -- the Vikings you know seeded this year. If they're struggling with one or the other and right now the great quarterback play it was enhance. By the fact that almost -- couldn't run the football well but today everyone in the struggle in the run the ball. And so I think that that's a big part of it today that if you can make it seem one dimensional. And not think you -- in more -- in this league to try to take one piece of it away in the running game put all the emphasis. On the quarterback make him play at the play up the play. I think that's why you need to tighten up. In this league and also to. I think if you look at some of which what do you wanna call bottom seeded teams of years past that the to Detroit Kansas City. That seven nice job drafted. You gotta give them credit that by the draft. And even singled bringing in Sam Bradford all views of having all holes early picks. I think have come through 46450. Really blocked well in this league get tickets made everything very very much. More competitive and you -- -- -- At MI -- your opinion on this when you talk about the draft and you guys waiting silently the negative play in the first and second Rhonda how they can -- to produce. Of look at it two players right now. That you know we're talking on on draft day about the that you guys this thing -- to draft obviously we brought away the school didn't have that opportunity. He's now starting off a linebacker with with the Falcons. Is this a fair analogy is spores can you judge where their act in their careers and how they potentially gonna produce. Public that -- washing -- life back on -- TCU he was taken the fifteen day. In the second round now he's starting for the Cardinals we decided to -- Patrick Robinson because of trees reporters entry. And now I'm speculating here but I think you get to starting nine and cornerback considering -- -- -- random people is on that Nichols. So is that fair to say you can compare. -- an 803 pointers down the road. Would Daryl Washington is doing as far as production with the Cardinals and maybe Patrick Robinson as a corner with the thing Bob. The good analogy and I contagious Saints. Him as their top weak side linebacker. They just didn't have him at the first round pick grade. And so -- with a higher rated player in Patrick Robinson and it was the bill would they consider it to be also in need area. But they went back to their board on. And despite the fact that at that point in time Washington was there highest rated weak side linebacker. Awful what they do -- wise. Not team you know. 34 also allotment got a cup for a while but what they do you really that much better. And that's what they had him. At this property god might quickly -- shop addiction Saints and columns I think this -- that we can break out because 3013 things. And it's -- -- -- about expert -- NCAA -- -- -- -- tomorrow night on the Saints coaches show here on the New Orleans Saints radio network -- we're talking tomorrow night I got the -- I -- -- to the Saints and the Cardinals. Turned down the Sonics then attempted to all of Saints radio network.
