And now we go live to say it's -- a -- post practice news conference his Colston with the right shoulder. Did not practice safety Roman Harper. Right ankle did not practice. Wide receiver Lance Moore with his groin was limited. And defense of tackle Tom Johnson with his left calf was limited. We signed wide receiver -- is Billings to the practice squad. In place of QB Sean Canfield. We're kind of back on -- normal schedule with today being in our our base. Installation first and second down. But we had a good practice. Gotta get into the normal week routine now with tomorrow being more of a nickel emphasis and questions. After watching what Chicago's it'll do the one year division rivals and defending you know. Division champs I mean how much the challenges that. Coming -- well. That this is a team that you know it's it's easy to forget it's not easy to forget really. That played in the NFC championship game a year ago in Chicago. The last two thirds of the season they played. Extremely good football complementary football. Both offensively and defensively in the kicking game but. The film against Atlanta was. Was it was definitely. A good indication of the type of team we're playing you saw them. Really do good job on defense. -- turn over pressuring the quarterback. And that's a real good offense they played. Some offensively they capitalized on that field position. Came up some big plays themselves. So you know when you watch it not only on offense and defense but you watch in the kicking game. Lovie and his staff and in in that team. Have a formula and it's been very good -- them when you look at their history and in so. They played to it on Sunday union you can see them on tape. It. Well couple things. You know when there's a point next game He became one dimensional. And once that happened. You know all of a sudden and then that the pressure heats up and it becomes. Easier for the defense of lined it to rush the passer but. And they played with great effort and energy peppers is done a great job the rest those guys up front are very active it's it's -- it's a real good front defensively. You know it's an experienced defense when you when you look at the returners coming back -- last year's team so. They know and in a very well coached in their scheme and they they know what they're looking to do with each defense of alignment that they call. They do great job keeping the ball in front of them and they've. You know historically since -- been there there probably second or third. Highest in the league with takeaways by the defense so -- some they do great job of obviously emphasize and and it shows up on film. You -- the saints coach Sean Payton here on state radio WW OK and FNN dot com. Yeah I mean you know it. A lot of those games you know after awhile they Begin to run together there's three of them and maybe not so much the NFC championship game -- the other two. You know again when you play good team in and in your Plame either on the -- home. They're still some key elements to. What wins and loses and we've got to do a better job of protecting the football. When we play them this time and then we have in years past. Again it seems like such a long time ago and in. And yet some of those same things we just talked about that happen in in the Atlantic game Sunday. Were things that that happened just when we played their so. We know it's big challenge force in. You know the the folk focus for losses is put together three good days practices this week get as much tape work is we can in on the opponent and an understanding. The strengths of this team or plan. There's. It. Certainly you guys and beat them there the effectiveness. Well I I think you're always. Kind of mindful of of your play -- balance defensively I mean there's times where you're -- you're open to get pressure you're not. Necessarily -- in obviously when you elect to pressure blitz. You're hoping to speed up the clock and in the quarterback's head in and change the timing. But but that's an important element to each week's -- and certainly an important element. In this week's game and you have that advantage of playing at home where the crowd noise. Gives you -- slight edge in regards to the snap. Mum. But I I think that's that's going to be an important. Indicator in the scheme. As pertains to both teams. Good. Morning the second half a world where there's a noticeable things. You guys just did you did better get back. You know I thought number one at -- we tackle better in the second half and in. And obviously the third down numbers were better. Those would be the two things that you -- But but this is that this is a different type team we're playing. And you know and quickly. We jump into we had an actor -- yesterday the day before yesterday excuse me on Monday. And we should have pointed timed it to see the tape and and look at. Last year's film. Obviously the pre season but the Atlantic game in. And and you know pay close attention to not only the scheme but the players that are that are in the scheme for Chicago. Well he's an -- returner. That's a problem you know both as a kick returner punt returner you know we've heard this before. He service before as a receiver yet buying coverage. In -- game up there they can overtime He. They always dynamic with the ball in his hands I think he's gotten better each year as a receiver. You know you can He can be involved in. A little wildcat -- the ball's in his hands usually a reverse. Quick screens. Am so his speed is is is something that's noticeable when you watch the tape and and I think clearly you have to have an idea were 23 years. At all times offensively it's it's easier to know where he's going to be on kickoff returner punt return. And in with that being said you've got to have a plan. In regards to what you wanna do with him as a return. Elisa assays coach Sean Payton here on WW well and that haven't dot com. I kind of I kind of think it was. Pretty much what we thought you're seeing some teams you know make those decisions I mentioned to someone the other day you know how long balls in the air and it has a lot to do with the decision come out. You know and so the -- it's not as tire or with the same hang time. You know can can be brought out with momentum at the three it's the kicks that you know are back in -- up five deep. That seemed to be in the air longer where you're seeing you know people down. I I think. You know in talking with -- about it and and Greg. And we talked about a lot is it is let's pay attention to hang time let's pay attention to how quickly this thing it's in your hands. As it pertains to the ball flight and you know if it's if it's in that three yard area where you feel like your -- and moving forward as opposed to backing up back in open and then. Where it takes a half second even after you feel that. So there's pretty smart player and and he's got good instincts and so. Between him and and and in the blocking back two of them can. Can make the right decision they're never wrong for for down and it. And in espionage the warning and yet we so got to be prepared as we know at some point the -- kicks common. That is going to be fielded at the five or the eight. And and you are you know cover and in return and it and so I think that's just a matter of time before you start seeing some of that we saw some this weekend. The news last week of Marcus is entry. That timetable it's kind of out there and how much does that change what you do that's different received -- missing Lance Moore obviously it's about time. A challenging is that would. I think this I think really it its you know what's the next guy up there and in that affects Devery it affects Robert. Last week Adrian Arrington was up and lance was working today in and look pretty good so. Here it's happened before with Marcus it's happened before with several the other receivers and you know fortunately we've got a group of guys that that no more than one position they understand. That the scheme had been in it long enough so. Here we feel pretty good about you know being able to. Fill in the next player in in the meantime you know continuing continues the rehab on markets and and get him up to speed as soon as He can. The younger. Quarterback positions let -- call for -- This equipment but the -- look sharp. He looks sharp the other day and you know when when when you have the defense that's playing as well. As they played. You know I think you Begin to understand that there are a lot of things that can help you in that. And in that in your performances quarterback in. You know I think forte is given him that some of that balance are looking for. He's got -- extremely live army control. Pretty much all the throws that you look for. And and it was good start for him. Now He hasn't he's. These outstanding and He does some things in in their coverage. That are challenging when we all talk about conventional Tampa two defense. He's someone that can run the middle and still play in front and in downhill on on passes underneath so. They do great job of get the ball there very well coached in in their philosophy in in their scheme. And and they do a good job of getting the ball removed from the ball carriers of the receivers so we've got to be real smart we've got to understand when the downs overs well. You listen it coach on date here on a beat him well enough -- -- Well you saw the other day you know in big play off of look like a screen in and He someone's got very good hands I think he's very comfortable in the passing game. And you concede that and -- and is it true runners someone's got -- vision so. He's better real good football player for them and in and I think you're start -- see him do a lot more than just. Play the running back position if you will please. He's a guy that it is a lot of skills then you gotta be alert for him as a runner receiver. Absolute. Absolutely. Well He was actually at the local work out you know be in these from Tulane and so you know clearly was a player. That -- from bird from -- -- and and you know he's he's listening he's a great start his career and play well. -- -- When you preparation for a guy is as active in their defense. You prepared that He will and it -- -- -- four. Yeah I mean I think that's that's that's the approach we would take and in. Then -- you prepare for the scheme in in you know it you know he's the captain that defense and and you prepare accordingly. That and I think I think we will. I think you'll see his snap count. Go up he's someone that it. Knows all the different positions certainly he's he's starts -- -- -- for roster or that's that's kind of where He initially aligns but He can play in the slot a complaint the -- position. And I and I. -- we -- lot of confidence in his ability. Whether he's playing an outsider -- in the slot he's very intelligent and he's a big target in in he's been here in knows exactly what we're doing so the timing. And in the confidence level in him is is very high. Performance by Darren Sproles and create very very good performance. That as well as what your expectations. Are for him for this. Well I think we too -- in you know he's a player that you try to get the ball to in space. He's he's a player that you know they. Obviously he's gonna have punt returns and kick return opportunities. He's a guy we're comfortable and in the ball to thrown the ball to. And you just try to mix of personnel groupings where he's in on the on the field sometimes season. You know with with another running back other times -- -- -- though is the featured H. And and keep looking for ways to do that you know he's he's very smart He makes good decisions in space. And you know he's got a great burst in and you sought in. In Thursday's game last week so. You know it's up to a -- to each week find ways but the ball in his hands and in in. Similar there and in in a similar way that we've done before with with Reggie Bush you know and and so that role for him. It is it is in pony it's in regular cynical you know there's a lot of different opportunities for -- to get them on the field and and get him involved. Yeah I -- it we did the problem is it was going to be hard to sell because the clock was going in and so really the one play He played was the next plays a pass interference. And now that moment which no one knew the significance of you know other than you you know we knew that the place where He had a reception. You know it was a shoulder and so. You know drew got the formation orchestrated and we got a playoff. And then of course after that we were in Google and sets so I don't think that. I don't think that with the time and where was we were getting ready to -- form. Is much is get the next play communicated in here we go. Oh. He. That yeah well it it it's it's look. We're not going to in other words in that situation that we're not gonna we're we're we have to get a playoff here. We have to get played at the end zone and He just becomes obviously in our primary receiver in that situation. With the third and racial or anything -- Who from a. No we've not. We've got contacted any receivers. And and I'm familiar with TJ Houshmandzadeh that's why Aston and I'm familiar with Randy Moss. And we. We've not reached out. To any receivers. We're in a position I think where will we were deep enough and we feel real good about the guys we have -- and good. We don't know Marcus. I expect listen I think I think. Lance had a good were good -- work today so we're we're we're really talking about the potential of lance coming back and and losing markets. You -- saints coach Sean Payton here on WWL I fractured arm and and with -- put in was it was a small plate stabilize that he's out of slowing and everything now and you know now it's just soft tissue flexibility. The timeline on it when we announced it is four weeks in and I believe that that timeline is it is. Acts is very realistic. And in so. He's feeling good it's just a matter of get stitches out and in Latin the bone meal. But the type of fracture you added it was one in which was fairly clean in and was able to via. Repaired. Pretty -- Market. Well. I don't know there's a run off with an injured player. And so he's got to stay on yet another words what was the time it at that point. 31 after Colston reception. Yes so. Hypothetically stays down it's 21. In and we've got another player and and but but I think our thought process -- or what was going through our mines myself Drew Brees was next play. Get a line and that the challenge sometimes with the clocks move in. Is is not in the field with your two minute offense but what happens when you get. Inside. Fifteen yard line your your your list of two minute plays. Is greatly reduced to a couple and so. You know we tried to do is is really give Jim Ingraham. A jump ball opportunity to right and then there and released and drew had him kind of on a little angle. And any kind of escape wonders scrambled in the pocket. So is it was it was heads up I don't know that I don't know that right at the top form minds we were taken we can't take an injury. Here I think the feeling was hey let's get through this next play. And and and the clock you know why have a chance to get it to the end zone. -- -- I think He was the next day we played Thursday that it would have been done on Friday I can confirm that with you but I -- I'm fairly sure it was Friday. Because and everything that's next man up but here's the rundown -- even -- this -- where that production doesn't seem devolved. It just hasn't. Good that He talked about. One. Well I I think this I think we we have a group of receivers that. Have been really in this system for awhile so they've got a lot of experience. Periodically. Each and every one of them at some point maybe has missed time because of injury. They're knowledge of the system their understanding. Of their quarterback and in the type offense we run. You know it's it's not the necessarily a passing game we go insane -- in certain certain reads that make it may be one in progression or two to three but. The point I'm making is it it's not an offense in which you know we know going in that one receivers gonna get eight to ten catches in this game you know we may. We may think that might happen but. So there's some position flexibility with the position group and its its credit to those players that they you know that they. Study it closely and they understand the whole scheme and so. The alligator and -- -- incomes up to play acts ago like plants Morse played next -- played over there and and so we've got. Flexibility and we've got experience and we've got -- then and I think that's probably a big part of it. As opposed to lose in a player maybe in a position group where you don't have that experience. Or you don't have that depth. Thanks to make up. The only radio station that listens to you. The news talk and sports leaders they'll -- 8871053. WW LF and WWL. Dot com where. Back on but show you -- -- a coach on patent press conference Kristian -- is out there at saints' facility right now a Christian -- -- -- but I don't that's got this get a read our recap on the on the injury report that were brought up there we don't know about markets will. Knew what was happened is his report about okay the surgery is good he's out of a brace now just got to go get the stitches in the bone feeling good what -- is it's a -- Yeah recap and notes -- what receiver Lance Moore who missed the Green Bay game with a groin injury was limited today at practice and coach Payton. So He looked pretty good at practice run around He again He was limited in its safety Roman Harper did not practice. He has an ankle and drew were unsure on whether that was suffered obviously you'd probably -- suffered during the the Green Bay game so loses three. Big headliners as you mentioned earlier with Marcus Colston fracturing. His shoulder He had surgery last weekend in that timetable for him as. Around for weeks and that'll give opportunities to guys like -- -- has been honest roster for a couple years now on. Has been buried on the depth chart because the saint of state -- relatively. Healthy at the wide receiver position and now a traitor to it should get his opportunity and but dominant hold it here because saint quarterback Drew Brees is coming to the podium and low tech analysts say it's like -- here on the BWL -- am FM and dot com. Yeah. Yeah I mean He sees he's a big part of what we do. I feel like. What we've been really good that here over the last you know going on six years now -- When a guy does go down there there's there's other guys that that step open and fill that -- in and pick up the slack and and and usually you do great jobs so. You know I feel like. You know Adrian Arrington Robert Meachem Devery Henderson Lance Moore all those guys will we'll do great job. Took to -- that. Toughness those and He he's he's acquired you know. In and also very tough guy. You know that whole receive record as I know because. You know they they run a lot they work hard. And and yet you know they never never complain they just go about their business and you know I figured some was wrong -- to win you know these these these things in his shoulder and -- kind of holding holding it. In a weird position these kind of felt like if He was doing that is that something was probably off. And you know for him to just -- stand. No and his team needed him you know for those last two place you know obviously says a lot about him as a player and his toughness. Let -- -- when you lose guys Michael Moore. -- so the -- at all. You don't realize what yeah. Yeah yeah I think everybody knows that. You know everybody understands that. We're gonna spread around we're in try to create matchups and opportunities for everybody and we understand that hey there's going to be times where a guy goes down two guys go down and you've got. Other guys that they have to pick up the slack -- -- gives young guys some opportunities to come and get some playing time maybe. Haven't got a lot of playing to that point so I think everybody. Here we take pride in that. As an offense. And certainly you know defensively when you're trying to figure out you were -- the ball's going. You look at all the guys we have in the way that we spread around and I think we we keep people on the toes but don't. Play hold. Yet sure -- is even if you lose -- you lose a guy -- a series -- of a certain number of plays you know you always have. You know the back of planner you always have a plan for you know. Where will -- can go or how you can just improvised little bit you know run the same play it was just a different. Personnel group may -- And yet it all works to us and we got smart guys that. We know there know their role and also can feel and elsewhere. -- You know someone on the offense player on the team you're playing against last year but -- played for the bears forever seems like yeah. And you're going to get against the team that. Rushed Matt Ryan in falcons for media. Pretty -- last week how much do you rely on him being at each senator -- He knows He knows the personnel that well right. -- -- absolutely does. Haven't been in Chicago for -- thirteen years or whatever was you know and yeah I think. That the challenges you know even if you know where -- go Warner. How they placed -- gonna block and you know and so. These guys these guys are impressive you know their defensive scheme. Albeit didn't know maybe. You know considered simple abide by the standards these days. In the you know the results are. Of the same and that is and they they do they do a great job of rallying the ball tackling. You know getting creating turnovers forcing you to third and long situations you know making you be becoming impatient. You know stop and you know due to -- stuff in the road system. You know seven may have fraud. And united distinct there their philosophy is one that you know they're well coached they're well disciplined. They got a lot of guys have been in this system now for awhile so they just they just do -- -- to a better than everybody else. -- -- -- -- -- -- Well. -- sports that have a day job. That I have to be. Himself. How obviously. Make it over there is as much as I -- because I am a fan of the food I'm a fan of Jimmy Johns. As well as being part owner so. Excited about bringing a franchise to New Orleans. And a lot of people are excited about it. A -- about it a few times and and usually do it -- a really great fan response just you know people that bad experience with it in the midwest or. In other places around the country and there's a Jimmy does open up the Baton Rouge about two years ago. It's another LSU. LSU students slowed. And they have to source their now so we've we've brought it to a New Orleans and you know hopefully we'll continue to to grow the franchise throughout the city -- And in the book but the first store opened today so we're excited about that I think the coaches are going to be getting it tonight as well as the quarterbacks -- will be nearly two. That. We look at the box score five actually you -- front of the film how much to believe that crime involved in court what zero recently you've received. -- You know obviously playing in Chicago is tough place to play. You know they just you know that's what day that that's scheme. Prides itself on. Getting after the quarterback with a four man rush -- got to have obviously some talented rushers. And you know peppers and went on injured -- two guys on the instant that you really good job Russian passer. The two guys inside. Or just you know big physical guys play great technique and knew when they do bring pressure in the -- they do a good job with senator -- a good pass rusher there. Their linebackers are you big strong guys that. You can get physical with back so they just they thrive in that system on. Specially get after Ian Foreman rush causing you'd have to. You know force the ball into places that you don't want to because or sooner than you want to just because. The shells own that they play. And you know that is the kind of hope that you get impatient -- the -- to force one in there and and that's gonna make you pay. It was a six quarterback Drew Brees here on WWL IMF and -- -- These. You know it -- it back. Yes you are partnered. Part of it. -- no. I'm I'm. Among familiar with with what's gonna happen today haven't had a chance to -- checking emails are pursing thing. -- know. It. Yes. It. It. It yeah. Yeah well. You know I'm not sure what with this particular lawsuits about but like I can say you know obviously over the over the last I'd say four or five years especially. You know I think there's been a lot of displeasure from retired players about. Certain issues I think the the most consist of loans being. You know the disability. In the situation. Benefits. As Willis retired players pensions. And I I feel like we we get our absolute best to permeate a lot of those issues with the -- VA that was just signed. You know within that CBA was revamping of of the disability system. Increase in a lot of the benefits the guys will receive for for disability. And also an increase in intentions. For pre 93 players so. I think their a lot of improvements made every time we get together is as. Players association. We're constantly talking about ways to improve benefits for retired players because they you know absolutely -- and so. We do our best to do that all the time. I'm sure you -- -- his opponent lightly but -- -- open your -- a little bit so. Tend to be. There's that is ahead. That -- came it's against. -- it took the time of the bears story curious Larry yeah. Yeah. I think I think obviously a lot of the focus. -- only -- in our. In our conference. And in their division is Packers. And so. You know let's not forget though that they're the ones who hosted the Packers and AFC championship game so. And they bend. Into NFC championship games won Super Bowl here with in the last five years. So they know what they're doing. They -- they have. Recipe in the blueprint for your success and how to win games. And you know we've had the fat -- misfortune of meet them three times previously all in Chicago and obviously those of -- haven't -- very well for us. So. You know we know the challenge that's ahead of us here and no word -- we're we're happy that is our home opener we've we've you know we're coming back to the dome. We obviously you to be crazy atmosphere because. We need every advantage we can get taken on these guests earlier -- You track. Oh yeah definitely. Telephone. Well. Notice I haven't beat these guys. So. But played in there every time so all four times have been in. Chicago's three with the saints and one with charters. So. Obviously Irish -- got to figure something out huge hit it. This is. Go these. Partly. Would you like to you're going to be -- when your mind -- when we don't have. Now usually you see. But I mean there there him. In my agent and in -- -- an ongoing discussions. You know for me I'm trying to to compartmentalize it as best I can't. You know obviously I'm involved to an extent. But you know I've got I've got. Other very important things to think about you know each week as -- prepare for the upcoming opponent so. That's why are my agent you know and and so they'll have a job to do. -- I'm hoping that it that it will be done sooner than later. But for me really it's it's about. You know focusing on winning games and trying to not have it be a distraction as much as possible. I mean. He's received and one of the best. You know inside linebackers -- asleep for a long time. He's great with that system in that scheme. You know BC's big physical presence. You can tell he's just got command of the defense and make all the calls from guys. Perspective means he's a playmaker he's always around the ball -- Creating fumbles getting fumbles interceptions tipped balls I mean. You've seen him be responsible for a lot of big places that happened that -- and -- a big hitter. You know system big range you guys -- great instincts. And yet you know forgot that -- evening news well so that he's he's. Uganda. And Horry is and understand his range. You know inside especially thanks the past. -- -- the saints coach that she's received quarterback Drew Brees here on WWL IMF and dot com. Where way. That. But. It can't Urlacher. Sure sure these days ago we. You never never count guys. And it's sounds like there is a family emergency. That and so. Okay so I'm not. And our that is in my mom passed away during. In training camp. Before the 09 season and so just that -- sudden event. And that feels like. Also know that you know after you after you are able to grieve and and you you know where's your family. You. You you also look forward to getting back with the guys -- locker room preserve your family to him. In a lot of ways are the ones that they get you through it -- and so the faster you back on the field and you with those guys you also feel like you know you're representing. In your loved one. In this case is mom. Pages that division's tough for her. You know they're they're they're two different styles of defense. They both have. You know some some pretty elite pass rushers. Their ability -- the quarterback. -- sacks turnovers. I'd say that part of the philosophy is the same structure is so different. You know. But. In a lot of ways I mean. If you just talk about paid defense in general defense is what what were you trying to accomplish. As a defense where you wanna be -- how well. If we -- pressure quarterback and we get turnovers would be pretty good. And both those defenses do that and therefore that's one reason -- both of them are are. He read defenses and sleep. -- Yeah I think I think we continue to build on that you know He He. He's been very versatile. Can do so many things. Obviously not to mention special -- stuff through them and but offensively. In his ability to grow up you run the ball from a from a two back set. Singled access split him out motion amount.
