Great nickname coach -- man personal thank you so much for joining us and yesterday to kick coverage so of the Saints a list all awful kick return to. At the look at the game tape how did you evaluate UT. Well I thought we know we -- up -- took a step or. I thought we felt like Garrett Hartley did a good job kicking off -- We you know we covered that a couple good return to Australia and not -- good job so well certainly it's. It's it's always every -- and coach -- -- but I thought our guys really stepped up there's certain. Played physical and and get replaced the short what we did pretty good pretty good job. You know coach that men they'll fans relax me okay -- then. Maybe strong leg kick it deeper. Now when you're evaluating and trying to get guys down there in the city to cover a kickoff. You evaluate. When all's said and done in the Carolina had a one of big return obviously. The guy with three names. Holing the I think who deal with the Cardinals Diaz -- big returns. So does that come into play that hang time. That may -- we'd be better off -- coverage. -- a Harley taken off versus Morris did not necessarily the distance potential touch backs but just overall are having the ability. To cover the kick -- given have a big play. Well on the arrogance of urged her question -- we're emotional we. We think Thomas -- very talented and very talented got a guy who can kick off from. No we're fortunate we have we have two players and then in partly morsel that we feel like can can trickle commercially do a good job. And no we just felt like. You'll get -- -- -- -- more correction to but -- we would like more steady. Did you doubt receive more step this year are sort of more complete -- We just felt like gear you know in many outdoor game he did a good job produce published a book -- -- -- about -- that true. Our special -- this is the coach this week is special teams coordinator Greg McMahon saints' offer 31 to six victory. Over Tampa will host Cleveland on Sunday at noon and coach big man. How much is a putting into basically studying the tendencies of a certain return apart a kick. Maybe reverses so what you wanna do each and every week so -- you a certain scheme that you may have had just things. At this week you've taken on a one of the better return guys in the game today in docile -- Well there's there's no question you're gonna start their tendencies in and know your opponent's personnel and and that's saint Simons. You know you've gotta do what you do I mean all could change the north saint Germain. Offense their tendencies and that's a good thing. Our defense -- certain -- can eat you -- wanna make sure you're trying to stay one step -- -- -- -- competition we're gonna board game plan. No. Certainly Cleveland or whomever this Tampa Bay and you know try to take away you know things that they do well in. Stand you don't try to make sure that your playing sound fundamental football and -- -- we don't try to you know reinvent the wheel that's that's for darn sure anytime you wanna have an option and that. -- -- you're not just the dollar average in either so there's -- -- line there but. There's certainly do you want you to go got you Mike Cleveland with Josh Cribbs and get no effect whichever that Porter. And then you know coaching men when you look at the track -- I yearning air out when you're evaluating. Each individual player game and he came up from year to year. It seems like it's still the case this year so far going forward. Here leading the team is special teams tackles our prayers -- thriller Courtney Roby was seven tackles I mean is that something. That maybe somebody younger players are another player to try to contribute to the team and realize hey -- liquid pray Alou acorn hero always doing that so we expecting. You know game any game now because I thought he was outstanding. And here's a guy have always liked him I even talk about. The play he made in 2009 the pre season when he sacked our Texas quarterback. Call them formal and Anthony Waters. Hi Terry leads a team with two. Present teams tackles that so what is the mindset. In the Australian teams meeting is that kind of like almost lead by example and what pairs of -- aloof and Courtney Roby has been able to establish. -- -- in New Orleans Saints uniform. Sure -- -- -- -- those locker room to -- you you played actually -- -- but you know. The mentality that -- can certainly be Paula good football can certainly be special teams core player but those are. Those are told a couple players that you mention it will be in -- -- in her third tremendous leaders in that they lead by example that we are production -- lead by. Article about that work each day at and on being practiced and in the -- they're they're good leaders in the fact that they try to bring young rookie players along McEachern I would be a 40. And that's the key is you know how to study film. -- -- would be mentally and emotionally prepared to play how to play with good technique its own bottles and singled to -- -- to be around him and they're big contributors on what we tried to church original coach Craig baker could those the kind of players that we're looking forward. They certainly are George this year where there's joy to work with that's for darn sure. I didn't -- they meant was the biggest difference is it just all about I mean out of those of you heard a cliche client thin line between success and failure. Utica last year where react where we at as far as kickoff. And -- coverage and then you know I don't have the numbers -- part of me but I know -- -- -- Tampa game. We're ranked fifth in the NFL you don't punt and kickoff coverage and where you know if you look at last year that we struggled then and -- as a bad area. I mean could you point your finger if it is it that close whereas -- much difference what the end that top of the league are at the bottom. As far as where you rank. Well I mean certainly. But we try to go behind the eight ball went up to date lecture when we open up the Detroit -- You know we gave up it'll belong to return -- -- -- along punt return. When you look back side in Manhattan that is giving the offseason and an all we do as coaches district's problems at all which -- -- Solution prob -- potential problem and you know you look at those couple cup were terms and acting like -- can't lose -- that your dog -- you gotta. But the same tribe has you know you've got out he'd be delightful. And you've got a picture that know these are these are the most personal world what they do so everybody touches the ball loosely. It is dangerous guy and so it really stretching your ability to play -- Proper level that you recruit good fundamentals and that they actually have like kicked placed in the right and times and so. It is to -- about it -- it's a very fine line that's a good thing that's a make or that exciting and that's what makes it to. You know you look around the league it every week ago contributor if anybody can beat anybody in. And you gotta make sure when you take shields will replace your gonna play security ago. And then -- you know of course that man look at that the -- return game obviously Reggie Bush. Not apparent. To what he did last year we all know his ability. I mean -- -- was it or I should -- as a team we're averaging twelve and a half yards a punt return. Now looking out lance mean the first git go through his outstanding against the Falcons. -- -- something on film maybe is that a block here -- there. Or maybe the approach them knew we haven't been as successful Reggie -- being in the mix. And this since lance had a big return against the Falcons. Well we we certainly. That that that's inept system you know. Wanna be and we need to be a good return kicking and and were shut about -- more that's more done a good job first and she's been here and you know surely don't know about dynamic Reggie can billion. But you don't punt return this is really just just eleven guys -- -- really want the ball the other ten guys just. Make sure that they understand you don't just get their job done because that is truly a one on one individual. My man can't make -- we have you know we have. Where the production was why am empty your amendment tackle -- bad things are you wanna make sure that your man. -- doesn't make the track when it's just really comes down to know lunch religion and get a good leverage on your managed being able cherished to the ball and you know that that you gotta do good job all the words you know true true to racial play. I coast main man this may be the most important question of the air stone coach showed this year. You're an eastern Illinois. Great teams they win a championship in the in the early eighties that what's more imported though what was more far Greg McMahon recruit and Sean Payton -- -- -- -- in the nor are Sean -- recruit great man become coach of the Saints. -- Listen I'm just so fortunate to be able to any coach nor change. Do you change your day at work -- -- to work from mr. branch -- in the future on him. Finishes this is it during lava man and you know what -- -- strategy that you and I ever feel different. That's been something wrong -- but absolutely have actually come works with a lot of strengths that you were Super Bowl champs and and and wherever the funnier to -- I mean it's it's it's it's some special for much so much Sam. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah yeah yeah there's a good for our look at -- you know coach -- got shot under his Jersey retired about couple months ago. I don't Q which match that they return managers of which are three numbers could they can take him my number get into another guy. So. Are you know what is we'll look very good and I was an average player I tell you guys are trying to do what I was gonna play out specialty but I was. I was no great player like like Shawn Bobby and those guys that's for darn sure. Well coach main man we certainly thank you for joining us this week good looking you in the saint Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and of course the rest -- Obama really appreciate you guys look for the -- pretty. All right that is saints' special teams coordinator great make -- Knicks because basically justices to coach will be assisted hate coach. And -- determine who the boss -- linebackers coach Joe fit. It's the Saints coaches show will return NFL analyst -- so by expert Mike Syria will be with a swing it around the National Football League. As we wrap up this week's edition of the Saints coaches show on the New Orleans Saints radio network. And welcome back. Welcome in now NFL analysts think college football expert Mike routier's we do enough final segment -- every Rica the Saints coaches show and Mike. Was sitting around we'll look at that the landscape of the National Football League in certain looks hot Chevy in the AFC and well I was gonna keep Goodell would numbers in the you know -- we -- they always say -- turnover as this -- I was -- and certainly other percentages are great but. At this don't know might win a Baltimore Ravens team is plus 200 turnover category and they lose a ballgame. And that with a case just -- two decision over Tom Brady they didn't have any turnovers. But the Patriots. Had the door open and they won their ball game 23 you're pointing. They might maybe not renewing a team that's forgotten about but over the course of the last couple seasons maybe got lost in the shuffle amongst some AFC team. Well it -- it they just haven't played as well defense in yesterday's -- did you know it was a great situation for Joe -- to -- -- game out didn't do it. And they left one bullet in the chamber. You know was Brady big unity -- -- gadget you know he's like that's silent assassin got just wait in the bushes. Andy gave him the one bullet in the chamber and he got it done. Again that they -- Baltimore's gonna be we know how good they are special teams defense they gonna get Eddie read back real soon. Can Joe Flacco. When he comes down to rubber meets the road can he make enough plays to get it to -- And I think that's a big question mark right now is because now this around the if they win out got TJ Houshmandzadeh. They got Antowain both -- Todd -- Who really had been injured for so many years he's got back healthy and he got he got his clock looking pretty good yesterday. But this around that Joe would a lot of talent. Big big question -- years. Is he gonna step up and crossed the line from DN a guy you would say is in that eight to fifteen category. That's -- quarterbacks in -- be in the elite so fault he's walked all around that line yet crossed it. And it's at my opinion -- go go out. Yet they -- you know look at this because we always look at the schedule potential opponents for the Saints. Indeed Peter told me is with Florida season I thought it was kind of like. I don't know at Detroit Lions syndrome. From the Cleveland Browns may be looking at what the Rams are. -- the San Diego Chargers they might be diversion. The Dallas -- I think in the AFC AFC -- and I know that they have seabirds and the Cowboys and and all you'll gain December 12. We play the Rams now they're 383. They've now won their third straight at home now we get to play amended bill the first tie it's it's old for it after did did this season. Would a fourteen game losing streak and look how -- third turn things around. And it's easy Sam Bradford. -- -- -- -- that guy. It is with so accurate that that's why rated sloppy itself. You get the bum shoulder everything else will as low as what you get the medical Valencia might feel this. At Oklahoma would you watched him play how accurate he wasn't a pocket you can talk about size speed and thrown up the run my deal with Sam was. Is that he had no skills to sit in the pocket and throw accurately downfield and he's been able to translate that very well now will say. -- offensive line isn't the greatest. And yet he still get it done they don't have the greatest receivers of the world and he's still get it done defensively -- played a lot better Chris Long you. And they had a couple facts yet yet yet street guys with two sacks. Saw me you know talking about but would -- anyway -- Rivers you can not a hero like termites and drove within. The Marcus McNeill incident that Vick got no word general manager and NFL outfits attacked him -- little cars in general manager player relationship it might or might that mean Jim thinks well it's like a terrible you. You know a lot of you know people pointed a finger at RG instead. You know what yeah what you -- played San Diego may have some withdrawal no Archie knew exactly what he was talking about in that spot. And hot it he -- sad because that team over the last few four years have been as talented as anyone. And yeah did not get it done and they get it done and now it looks as though. You know Shawne Merriman is on the verge of either being traded cut loose whatever you wanna say it. And that team the window has Coles. Has closed on him and if you turnaround. And look I -- the Chiefs lost just -- -- but if you turn around real good you -- don't know meets in the background. Hi hey you know big -- how about this now we look at the one loss teams. You look at the Falcons though we -- it cheered for the Eagles. Then you look at the bear and -- -- yeah -- the Bears looked more like pretend is naked dinners you look at Jay Cutler. He was sacked six times by the Seahawks but I'll fake -- and how in the world Pete Carroll in the sea dogs they had -- game. They put the ball to Devin Hester. Goes 89 yards that's equaling NFL record. With thirteen kick returns but touchdown the sea dogs that they game and kind of let him back in -- with 89 yards per return and -- has. I get rid of that pick up a good luck then you know you know -- -- over the nobody is gonna think Percy hauled in the in one and a half viewed as has gotten three. Yeah so they are you talking about to even the gods in this business and we got even bring it up Joshua Cribbs and what his impact has been the week. You know what I think you riveted to go today so of -- returned it when you look at people like Hester like Cribbs a person apartment. Type both Almonte made those guys skidded -- -- every time they touched a football game. -- by the Cleveland Browns come to town on a Sunday ballclub that made a lot of wholesale changes this offseason when the directive direction quarterbacks. Our opponents -- a coach that we didn't know what was gonna happen in. They got -- behind the scenes so to speak my homework -- -- what will he will you wind up being the coach of the Browns might avoid so when. Note because I think he I think he'd like to stay in the background and -- general manager president thank god that you could see Eric Mangini is a phone. Some real then putting -- all as soon as the Bobby. That would Rashard Mendenhall scored doubles the first rushing touchdowns. You know Browns have given up all season long. It just pretty stout run defense -- again they get torched in the air. But David pretty stout run defense that's something that you know what that you had to get meant Cheney's he's been that he's done a solid job. On the defensive side of football but just not enough material there and you know can you protect -- You know because I think -- a good quarterback but. You've got to be able to protect him better than what you've done. You know Mike -- -- -- better that it didn't come into play because considering. Goal anything it's -- a game accused who had nine red zone efficiency Bruges through four. So it might be a case where it's so hard to run against Cleveland. We're gonna have to get better read filters down through yeah left that are go after it about Georgia that the Eric Wright has given up five touchdowns the last three weeks yet. All right guys we will talk the next week after the Saints and Browns the good city for Halloween night showdown against the Steelers. Full coach Sean Payton's name coach Greg McMahon might TA embody -- Deke Bellavia you've been losing the Saints coaches show. -- Sunday at 10 AM for the countdown to kickoff. And then a noon kick off in the dome of the Saints play host to the Browns on Deke Bellavia and this is a New Orleans Saints radio network.
