Say good evening and welcome to the Buckeyes got down a -- how we're not counting it down to the Saints and stuff Oakland Raiders tonight. Out in Oakland isn't pre season game number three the game we should see. The starting lineup for both teams the longest in this part of the pre season at saint within return -- on a short week. They take on the Titans this coming Thursday September 1 and then one week from Thursday. It's all for real but the Saints opened up at the Green Bay Packers on Thursday nights at him eight as always flanked by that cajun cannon Bobby and. So diva media Tebow -- just -- Tebow by the way and I think in the inner league and hamburgers and -- well in the arguing that that that's another. Topic to dig out but it isn't -- a promo does that strike apparently. Has some kind of -- went -- and He had good day good day He had today -- that it's -- kind of limits -- the week when you put up. Early donors I don't like you know more mass -- its glory dude dude dude and -- know He has met him. And I'll do it in -- move on from Portsmouth. Have to -- yet because I don't think that strikes fear into the opponent we thought maybe maybe the first thing at this point the outlook might have to re cut anyway. After practice -- week. On the West Coast and Oxley. The stay the Saints stayed out west to close out their 2011 pre season road slate. The contest vs the Oakland Raiders will be played in about two hours of Oakland county coliseum. In a nationally televised battle on NBC yet we only game in council. You gonna watch football also ended today is this thing in the Raiders the club's last pre season meeting occur when New Orleans crush. Oakland 45 to seven and August the twenty ninth a -- nine. At the Saints set franchise records for the most points and largest margin of victory in a pre season game I believe that performers vs the Raiders gave their confidence. And said the tone for the saint suitable championship campaign. Yards and Oakland have met four times in a pre season with the series tied at suited to. And ironically the regular season series is tied at 5501. Also. The Saints have played three of the most notable preceding games in franchise history against the Raiders going back to August of 1990. Now as a part of that that was the year that I -- -- New Orleans played in Europe for the first time when they defeated Oakland seventeen to ten at London's Wembley Stadium. And -- at ten of the first double five. The Saints played their first game everyone remembers this following Hurricane Katrina. A thirteen to six loss at Oakland which. At that time -- -- careless basically about global trying to get their lives in and that -- nine record setting pre season game vs the Raiders the Saints I'll gain Oakland 344. To sixty in total yards in the first half. Posting nineteen firs downs. To just three Oakland. They also finished the contest with 536. Yards of total offense. Big -- you know -- very similar to how Houston Texans dominated the Saints defense last week. Where -- in that Albert four to 36 charge that to our offense was it was more discards it was 323 of those yards was in the first half. I think yards -- bonds back from last week's embarrassing performance against Houston and handled the Raiders on the road who are now led. By rookie head coach hue Jackson. So big was what's crazy -- -- eternal and NFL. In a four pre season games. We will pay three rookie head coaches. And next to a Thursday and gets coach budget in the tank and the Titans. Will be the third a rookie head coach in big cheap look and see of these two young players. We'll step up to take advantage of their opportunities that being safety Jonathon Amaya. Starting in place of the though -- being. Injury that Roman Harper has. QB pagan -- place and give it to tackle Mitch king. Who will likely start in place of injured Sedrick Ellis so great opportunity before John academy and Mitch king. They -- support back at tonight's contest. -- golf ball a little balls down is obviously staying healthy. Through the season just around the corner and making a statement. That you are one of the best teams in the NFL. That's the -- -- Bobby Hebert I'm Deke Bellavia Oakland hot Rolex time as one hour and fifty feet and made it to the Saints and the Raiders turned down the sound on that bet. And turn up to New Orleans Saints radio network. It is above I count down to kick off a -- -- Kasey -- embody a -- I'm Deke Bellavia today's game is being delivered by those satellites and of the official transmission provided to the Saints radio network. Called satellites and -- final 4888. Ish that brought the issue with sports network let's go out west to Oakland with saint kindness -- guys jones'. A rejuvenated hope you guys down has been enjoying the balmy weather on the West Coast all weeklong hello hope. You don't speak about they would make you and Bobby jealous now because it's been a great week out here practice in it looks like another great night for the game. Temperature right now sixteen. Bakeries. The low temperature tonight will be 57 there's a light wind coming out -- did not amount per hour and they would. I'm glad he's got to sit back at home Witten because we are not a you know -- it's almost like let -- get a -- is almost like of ball game -- come October you know in Louisiana. Yep Bobby that's exactly right I mean it really it's been that way. All week long -- -- -- you'd kind of there in the course of the week do you hear from -- not that. You know -- saint Pete but one man you know what this might not be a bad -- about a year and hold training camp at least for nothing -- like a week like they just did this past. Weak bat after they've left Houston you come out here mean it really -- or -- guys. -- -- -- coach made everything He kept out appeal for a solid two and a half hours that's up that we don't see all that often back into long because. You know what He immediate development everybody's -- -- by creating an off field out here it's almost like in Bobby -- through when you were up there across this guy like. Can't do half hour practice that's about the in this kind of weather but you had to do it twice today they only got a chance to do -- today. You know Holcomb very familiar with the east bay you know my daughter went to school up at cal Berkeley it's about thirty miles north of Oakland and actually lived. In the Bay Area in 1985. And the San Leandro Heyward area so I actually played some home games in Oakland coliseum. So I just think it's a great atmosphere as far as the weather. And you know quarterbacks and kickers and putters they don't have to deal with the elements and usually that's not the case in Oakland so. Then no excuses. For our offense cyclic and also has I don't know -- accomplish what they did back in 09. You know when they set a franchise record for most points and largest margin of victory. The outlook for us to have the upper hand it that we considered. Like wanted to Benson NFL I don't -- pre season. And now I -- -- -- are having come and that I think I'm not saying it's going to be very similar to the 49ers but I think even though we're on the road that was just a better team in the Raiders right now. Yeah I've ever Bobby -- we 100% of I don't -- rated very very -- very good team. You know I mean you you kind of look it did even the other day they could they go through the supplemental draft that they get Terrelle Pryor made gives -- we don't the reason why. Because He ran a 43640. And they'll look that's very impressive for quarterback I'm not discount that and all. But that's a typical Al Davis move right there. Who can run. And it just those guys but the bottom line is to hit that gap play. And I Ottawa that were up our camp or not but the point is they drafted where we really nobody else does all that interested in. Maybe it -- they get into the sixth or seventh round but Al Davis took it because He can run fast and now they've been -- married do it so maybe they got to stay quit but. It away it's. I don't know decides to come out here and put 45 points -- more of an about face Upton does it just got to. Last Saturday DL they're used to get the updates at the the Raiders and the 49ers today about. I don't think either one of these ball -- -- very good so I don't think you are put a whole lot of stock in how good the Saints -- night. Based on who their plan because I don't like to Raiders of that goods. I would take back it would -- of the related down -- the Hokies now it's time article on the road in the NFC east now -- Christian here. In the NFC -- countless other businesses here's Chris -- The NFL pre season is winding down the ten may Buccaneers beat Miami seventeen to thirteen behind five sacks from their defense. Josh Freeman directed at TD drive just before halftime to finish on a positive note and Connor Barth kicked a 28 yard field goal for the -- Can't they overcame fifteen penalties in the performance not nearly as crisp as -- hoped for. -- off last week sloppy lopsided loss to the New England Patriots Bucs coach remorse as they'll take it. They're a good job and it's a good effort you know we. Did He say to start fast they have done that out the window was gone but he's just finished fast. Much to be doing -- -- kind of got going to have to make drug free got a couple plays going -- -- in the second. Quarter Pittsburgh hammered Atlanta 34 to sixteen top guns quarterback Matt Ryan squeeze an entire gains -- the -- into quarters completing 2242 passes. For 210 yards one touchdown and one interception against the banged up Pittsburgh secondary that was missing starting quarterbacks Bryan McFadden and Ike Taylor and -- -- look like a rookie of the Panthers 24 to thirteen loss to Cincinnati Newton went three of twelve for 43 yards in the first half that was two yards more than He rushed for in the first half including a sixteen yard touchdown scramble Newton played the first three series of the third quarter and finished six of nineteen passing. 475 yards leading up to tonight's game against the Oakland Raiders the Saints spent the entire week in Oxnard California preparing for the third pre season contest. Saints quarterback Drew Brees says the team benefitted from their time on the West Coast we. Accomplish what we hope to accomplish by coming here that was being able to really maximize the amount of reps and we're looking at home relief. Kick off tonight between New Orleans and Oakland is set for 7 PM right here on Sainz radio four on the road in the NFC south on Kristian -- on the new world Saints radio network. I'm just counting down the Saints and the Raiders long been out -- West Coast always come home. And they'll come home late tonight or tomorrow Thursday's final pre season game at the dome against the Titans in the -- The regular season kicks off Thursday night September 8 games. The Packers in Green Bay you'll hear it all season long. New Orleans -- the ball on the New Orleans Saints radio network. He is about like countdown to -- go along He became five -- -- there -- ability don't get tonight after the locker room issue from Oakland. We'll have the point after -- a -- to sound off all the things that are pre season game basically the found one. For the front line players come into the 911. Thinks lost their first pre season game at San Cisco 243. And last week at this fine performance by all accounts including the team itself from a Bobby coach Sean -- one of the things that stood out. It is post game press conference last week was there's no way to sugarcoat a loss like this in a 2714 loss. To Oakland tonight to take on a Raiders team that is oh in two including office bizarre loss last week to. San Francisco which the fan behavior. At the game and outside the game -- dominated the headlines there. But Bobby what are you expect from the Saints tonight practicing and cool -- -- which is longer practices this week go for a longer period of time -- along -- period of time since the first week of training camp in. Other than just to go out there today in the guys that one's -- Warren's we need to play better this week ones on ones we did last week. Well that's obvious to me you know on and then of people -- pre season but still I think He got a lot of them play ball. No because you got to get his swagger back it's as a confidence -- the -- standpoint of as individual player. Did you feel good about where you at right now heading into the season. Now I don't think. The -- almost ridiculous last time we played in -- the coliseum how we dominated. The Raiders and said this -- can call the show. I mean that now is unbelievable that it literally looked like will we be -- greatest part of by the seven now's like divorce city play in the javy. In the first half. When you dig -- you have if you have you know around 1921. Downs the whole game and nineteen firs downs. The first have held the Raiders to 31 downs nose like did varsity version of the JV. And now and that's why therefore you look to set a franchise record for most points. And -- largest margin of victory so I don't expect that. Visited about a recurrence of Buffalo fourteen nothing in the for a score. 31 Noth and an -- them. 38 enough and going into the fall quarter -- -- real hurry if boy -- -- pass in 232 yard rushing back 36 total. And 21 based in almost two to one time position forty minutes twenty means there's so. It was it was as dominant oval performances you can do -- -- I don't think you need at the -- to feel better yeah exactly do we yeah oh yeah but. In an all mean everybody play well time ball game and. Know what because I think it kind of said that told. -- the kick of the season and eventually win this in mobile lazy oh it's only pre season. But I think the mindset. Mind. The senate should say as far as a swagger and the confidence know you kind of set and it told. You feel about yourself. You know tradition generated status -- the -- -- as of late. Mean the Raiders of late has basically of -- I mean you can't shoot code that the Raiders and the Raiders old which you know we grow which you know very intimidating a team that. Mean that's like to be objective. A look at that probably was the Texans. This pre season game in their history last year I mean last weekend against the Saints this. Well it did this and I'll look at the first tab is as the guys you count on in is not going to be a much changes. So when I look at. That that this number okay we had the rare departed four yards a total of -- against the Raiders. And we dominated. Well that Texas had 323. In the first half mean that that that's not too far off now you know when you think about it now we got nothing to so car that's why they knew -- to come -- healthy. You wanna make a statement that you can know about magnate. In that first you know let's just stated on nine pre season game against the Raiders. The states scored touchdowns on their first three drives in the defense force. And recovered three fumbles so you know we always emphasize that because that repaired in NFL. Protected info ball forcing turnovers and haven't sustained drives are you control in the temple though it was like a textbook tide gain even though was. A pre season I think we Drew Brees like to have an odd thing yet to have. You know your first three drives and up in touchdowns but. I'd be nice -- get a touchdown and at least get points. And it's -- and -- -- to you know -- in the brief tutorial and losing last week seventeenth at three the only points in the fourth quarter against San Cisco. In full quarters of play about a 64 rushing on the 150 pass and hit two earned and fourteen you know the polo for a Mets week. San Francisco we saw their offense at 400 into the all the total offense this -- including. 239. Yard rushing it's only pre season but this is a rush defense about it they gave of almost 240 -- the week ago. The Saints should be able to do something on the ground tonight. Well they should -- to run the ball very similar to what we accomplished last week when you look at the running back trio of a marketing and Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas. You know we had 82 yards double a touchdown averaged five point one yards per carry. Anytime you four yards are above -- mean you get that done I don't cameras running back by committee so we should delta. After success against the Raiders running the football considering even last year Deke. They gave up like a 189. Yards a game. And now none other -- no battles in the past the -- though they were rushing defense they were 29. I should say given have a 134. Yards a game had been that backwards. But their -- -- that is unbelievable that was a lot to do -- somewhat who's now the Philadelphia Eagles and their rush defense does horrendous summits one in nine. In the league so we should go to run against him a big I think it's going to be a big challenge. Follow run defense. When you look at how we -- gash last week. But at Texas now you know when you when you look at it -- Boston yet Larry Foster led the NFL -- about how by -- day. Big big -- this where you look at the Raiders beat the attitude headed monster and Darren McFadden and Michael Bush. I don't know how much they'll play. But then again if you can keep it in the right date they average last year a 156. Yards rushing game which is number two in the NFL so big challenge. But Gregg Williams and the run defense that's a Saints fans in the -- and -- there's still concern about who always both have these these in the middle. You know these big catch Shaun Rogers now -- Franklin. How that's gonna be I think that is crucial I don't know even be available for other. You know for the Packers game but that's going to be key how we play against her and I'll be very. As discouraged if we don't play well against the run tonight considering what happened against the Texas last week because you know. The Raiders come in the pro ball that I'd be a big challenge. -- KG can embody a -- it is above I count down the kick off on the New Orleans Saints radio network. And welcome back it is above my cap down the kick off 26018786689. 0870 is in the American involve these Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia it's now the Hokies called -- is all about you by. Verizon Wireless the official laws about it to the New Orleans saint go back out to Oakland the Hokies car which on -- -- program is hoping guys -- taken away. All right thanks a lot they other than the fact that don't know the weather's great out here. Bobby is kind of wanted to alert you that you know they have the baseball -- -- configuration out there on the field right now you know with the -- -- played here. And always hated -- -- that type of field you know whether it was eight in Atlanta. Are when we play the 49 to ramps up like that -- they always had that in field that they're not there it him EA the middle of the plate field. If you go over runner on grass on the dirt in UE it's always very like some by it was sprain an ankle. Blow -- the out something like that but just. He goes up so when you watched the game and I you see that that baseball diamond out there you cannot know that yet there's still that have a year but. Other that. Got that made it it it's been a good week to work out here for the Saints. The only kind of sit there. Back at home. Usually after about an hour 45 minutes our -- -- -- -- that you -- coach -- was going to be shut down practice. On me He went to the bitter end this week because. They got were able to do it and it was -- -- out at me it was actually it was pleasant to sit out there and watch practice it and be involved and you know you really figured. By the but the week is over with they basically got him an extra practice and a half because of the extra time that states they don't feel that they did spend a lot of time. Working on his specialty even more so that we saw back in New Orleans and I think the reason for that was the weather but. -- Miami area and -- right now. Obviously you'd be this thanks team ought to be -- ago they should be good it refreshed for this pre season game. This is the date game that typically your starters play a lot more than they do it means the other pre season game bit. We'll see if that holds true tonight but I don't see any reason in the world Rocco made. Which changed things from what he's done in the past. Cut it down short for his. I hit it's first unit offense to defense -- probably go look it Drew Brees and all the other started. Gordon have doubts about blisters to do unless they just come out here and -- the Raiders like they did a couple of years ago. And you know logo what -- made just an -- because I think also it is going to be in there the only negative is obviously to turn -- you don't want a terrible -- what -- is that is when the Raiders them on offense. Against the Saints defense you know to get their comments back blog do you could force. A couple of three and -- and look overall what you do on third down. You know defense and obviously at the great turnovers in -- -- on the plus side after a 49ers game. And now we're minus one after two pre season games but I think is going to be a big challenge. By the saint -- considering how we got -- in the running game not only -- Foster. The -- stadium when you look at the Raiders now that a number ten offense that they've passed the ball very well being them a 23. But they were numbered too. In rushing the -- ball 156 yards a game but within two at a mosque that Darren McFadden and Michael Bush big -- averaged five point two yards a carry. Bush four point one. So that's -- wanna see an -- and I know Coach Williams is aware of this but how often they get a ghost I should have Spurs have house -- -- against the run. Bobby I agree -- right there -- you know I mean my philosophy about pre season has always been you know it is not how many points you score it's what you what your performance is. And that at saint performance last Saturday against Texas was not very good. And look you win against one of the elite offenses in the league I mean there's a reason while my job goes out there and throws for over 4000 yards every year. There's a reason and Eric Foster is such a great back that they miscue that Texas is the fact that they don't have much defense and immediately at least did it look like they have shored that up. A little bit. That's no excuse for the Saints to a debut to you talking about a veteran roster right here of guys that have been around for a long time. You can't really look at the Saints are defense last week go well we'll get a young guy in the middle we got a young get the -- -- we got a young -- at linebacker is really divided field gap. These guys are pretty accustomed to this this defense with the exception prior got it Shaun Rogers would be the only one but he's mentally for a long time so. They worked on it all weeklong. That we talked about earlier in the week no I never did see him do anything live but they did a little bit more. Collision that might just sets up the due to weather by it was still a bit more scrap out details but. Little bit more contact at practice but nothing that -- Say it was a game where even close. To be -- contact so. When they get out here tonight like you said with McFadden and Michael Bush you'll find out because I think it in this situation at least for this game tonight. That the rays are probably wanna run ball if they watched that tape from last Saturday. Yeah old getting you look on the other sided of calling I think we should build to build upon attacking -- -- raiders' run defense if you look. Last week the trio of Darren Sproles Mark -- Pierre Thomas you know led 82 yards rushing but five pull one yard average inning got that you have to look at. So that was deficient. And and the reason why I think even though it is pre season the beginning of the game because you don't want him taken shots and Drew Brees. Is that you should go to run against the Raiders they were -- night in the league basically given up -- to 34 yards a game. But they were second in sacks. Opiate party seven you know us Saints fans will always hoping great wins and a defense we can be out there obviously. A grainy journal there also game after the quarterback. With the Raiders do do that. We we said if you around 48 -- have you normally you know 12 or three in NFL in sacks with the Raiders -- 47 sacks. We're number two so you never want to be one dimensional against that Raiders defense and I'll be looking at the first have a I think he'll be an -- best interests obviously we should dealt to run the ball. Against the Raiders and and not let that Raiders you know front and be able to pin their ears back and get after Drew Brees. I Bobby I'll answer the second question first -- that's one thing in the Raiders have always been known for its defense -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And what you say it right there is exactly true I mean they do come after the quarterback. Now going to your first question about the running game you know what to what the Saints can do afterward marking a bit last week rightly -- dollars there at pro life. But you know how Sean Payton is He could change that from week to week you sit there you look at ago boy you know you really did a good job rushing the ball last week in. Whether it's a regular season pre season but now all of a sudden they'll come out and they -- throw the ball. 45 down just write in Russian twelfth that is so you you really just don't know. So I don't know whether I answered both you question -- yeah obviously ended up I would like to Chico made at least in this ball game right here. As you said to keep Drew Brees -- run the football. All right would shake He would -- guys on -- night in the locker room Shalala -- to gain by beating him. I'm Deke Bellavia it is above I count down the kicked off on the New Orleans Saints radio network. They welcome back it is but like Santana kicks off 2601878668890. Rates and it to the phones -- go. A friend would be in in the Big Easy fellow -- it was in thank you because of the -- like countdown to kickoff. -- to pick in my Caldwell. Bobby I'm though you do a lot of research. And my concern about its game. Particularly heels split the second area spring. If you go back and look at. How would think He then. Played against Jason Campbell each -- our secondary. Like what He was walked into. Right right now that's a great point for him at the end though. Jason Campbell probably had his best games in the NF Gallagher is the same unit that I would -- in -- elect a Pro Bowl quarterback. Great and that's what my concern is how old -- secondary -- Be able to respond to Jason Campbell he's coming off -- -- And while at the plate so that's going to be my question. I'll try to call back to the game we will just we visit this subject but I'm concerned all well. In there point. Q yeah you know -- within a B Anderson is C because and a concussion. -- can utilize Jason Campbell in the game today. Now hopefully cal ball bowler does not torture and that does not towards our defense because of and He hasn't. He's got definitely a journeyman NFL Terrelle Pryor. No ease on the team but He suspended. And He got Trent Edwards who are remembering him. From the Buffalo Bills. But not enough -- Jason Campbell's gonna play. But no Brent within out there and army concern. Right now considering and I'm looking forward to -- not even the Raiders at times but that Packers game. I'm still concerned. When our secondary how we get a hold -- in blt cover all the Packers weapons. I had that one concerned the whole team right now to me. It is in our secondary and how we gonna hold up. Absolutely well. Like it to you after the game all right about college and keep on -- which adore. A thriller -- I guess I was a column in the -- -- the -- gone back to when Campbell was it. And Washington you know with two years and they beat his back to back He did do you -- to -- thing -- QB we we -- -- in owner and we had a remarkable come out and He played coming off -- played unbelievable Elliott. -- a Pro Bowl level we did not stop and when we said we're making Jason Campbell probable -- -- -- whose name means 46 Horry did the tight end again. All cool yes. I have a great governor ties and no Soviet Garcia sorry we couldn't cover a lot of -- mean look will we lost that a problems in the dome Toni and Dallas. -- they -- wanna say it does yes -- -- -- -- -- me you don't say acceptable but you can -- -- hall of -- but big -- I'm telling you just look at his numbers. He's like the Ronnie did you feel tight ends. What he's really kind of like a Pro Bowl they -- get recognized. So noble we have struggled in that area. Yeah I'd be interested to see I'm not even -- We've been several months that they -- the other night we had a chance to take -- -- at that. The Packers purges in the two man against the Colts and ankles impacted me if I that is in saint. First regular season opponent but tonight it is the Oakland Raiders turned down the sound -- that. It -- New Orleans Saints radio network. Inside the NFL with Mike did affiliated brought -- wide open heart Jewelers where there's a great work hard in every box from open heart. And welcome back to come I can't stand ticked off the ball to Casey gave him Bobby -- yeah I'm the -- -- NFL analyst Scott it's about takes. -- of course you do about Monday's hosts the coaches -- about him myself. Mike that series and there's Mike tonight the Saints taking on the Oakland Raiders and some of the moves that open. May coming into this season Michael Oher didn't make obviously the big one Nunn they're awesome wa was a -- along -- -- -- lineman Robert Gallery. And at tight end Zach Miller but they bring it tidy Kevin Boss from the Giants as bother brought up in arresting. Back up is a trick and -- so those steam those two seem to be the key additions at the rate has made offseason. Yeah He hit the ball in tune with the Raiders walk. Well like. Now. Oh you're -- you know people are -- not. It in the there. You know it was pretty well in the world they. Are a little better it would okay what are. Actually night. -- really -- up. Then pre season has been Dinara is more well we got the -- a lot of new Britain and people at the -- like a big play element. All all the -- -- Tunisia early ordered the preceded them but bottom line is. And you don't will play somebody like you know -- is one in the when He took cornerback. They blitzed a lot last year they're not gonna group that. A certain element this year. But pickle right cornerback played at the actual Middle East if they can get guilt and -- be gaining. They can get back to an eight -- not -- very well in the other than vehicle. Oh yeah and not go skiing in the if you dwell on the -- played well last year but I don't -- nickel pick it up. In and when He -- And now might -- -- it is Seymour. From obviously there running He was outstanding last year they were number two in the league and oh win when you look at that 156 yards a game number two -- -- said that. And Darren McFadden got off kind of the slow start missing a lucky click forum last year five point two yards average for Carey. And I want to put between him and Michael Bush. So you being my add to Darren McFadden has turned a corner and will be in -- lead back. All I know. They come out well you were you more and so we all took a look at the laundromat or until. One question mark was an all or body you don't get a break tackles and new York and out burger went back. You can use the word or -- written more bodies strip. -- a -- been a god he's got here you can do well in the opens they tremendous field vision. But He will now what what can -- a halt a runner and in silicon that.

So above lie I had today what im looking at other Ellis she'd use Mike I'll look at it this blowing easier in the locker room He does that look. Like he'd be damn much of a dominate presence but he's just a football player. You got to be excited and happy for Kyle Williams. Look at the Buffalo Bills just sign a six year contract extension. Potentially worth 39 million. And considering the bills drafted them. What in the fifth round out of LSU. He's been a starter since his rookie season and 06 so when you look at latter riled as far as getting rewarded financially.

It FL analyst Scott's advice for Mike to team Mike will talk to you Thursday night when the Saints have their final pre season game against the tight. And you heard among active by beating on a few things in tackling. And now one guy about limited to -- to that last week but the -- yes that's been going into. The Texans game was we -- -- -- having a good camp but the running of the football. -- -- be -- had a hurricane on the nine yeah -- because He has an opportunity you know primarily in nickel linebacker with the Seahawks. Special teams player you know he's not Auburn. Another great success story considering you know where He was drafted but as of right now dignify that speculate.
