And welcome to our never grew. Ruud van bird that lives of those who got a restaurant -- the thirty guys top guys at the French Quarter flawlessly. Scored -- confident eventually got a lot of who'd had. In the house get ready for the big game today. As the Atlanta Falcons. Come to the Mercedes-Benz superdome to kick off the season are there probably yeah go have our question and answer yes. Robert Meachem is here he showed up here yeah he's got records haven't been there if he's there with us that we got out of the Phillies bats with a Robert Baker I think the Mark -- I'll sit down and have breakfast and if you give them a no they're not had a tough day. All right to elevate 78 the thick that it a lot of ups also Falcons fans in the town today. Walking around and you know. You gotta you gotta welcome him to come to the city I mean it it's a short trip for me they were just here in February right where thing. They were -- in the 49ers in the Ravens play but they were here in February they were here for those who watch the Falcons like. And the latter always revive him -- you -- your -- and sent them home that's right the last time they were here you know we sent them home with their first loss though. Times in the world and for the Falcons -- the always enjoy the food enjoy your stay. For about three hours today it's going to be very disappointing for all had a long ride home pitcher does. So what sexy thing no we always say no -- you know people but that will -- in the world -- him Nolan. Stands for no one likes Atlanta that. At that Steve McCarthy. Okay some of the and national. Experts and for those of you were listening on the radio my hand through and the quotation for the expert. Picking today's game a lot of them more picking the Atlanta Falcons. Two win at the Mercedes-Benz superdome today especially on those on the NFL network look it's. Wonder we only have. The only have to go on on last year for us because of the new year you you know. Look at all the teams at this point. You know have one goal line in the summer. You know obviously realistic consumer are not as realistic -- -- a bit. But look Atlanta's got a great football too many questions about it OK this because we don't like him all that kind of stuff it's a robbery. Look dirt I just don't want this steady diet at number 39. You know all all day long because that's gonna make along after me time. -- fifty pound running back you know you're getting you know thirty -- something crazy like that that's good that's good -- That's going to be that's -- -- just go recruit or so at this point look to our defense is still unproven we've seen it. Bryant in pre season and we hope we think it's going to be better. That it was what we don't know yet okay and it's it's a work in progress each and every week different have to get better. This is where this is where coaches or money you know it is obviously they make the adjustments they have to make. You know for a team like this and they get a certificate shut this down to the one thing you wanna do. If you're gonna do is make them one dimensional but. And that's going to be all over you know with the kind of running back there now in the fact that you know they have these wide -- they have. Is going to be it's going to be a tall order force or defense has to step up and -- -- it but it looks to me like we're at that score a lot of points to win this game. Ron Jaworski. Mentioned there earlier on ESP that he thinks in order to combat the crowd noise in the Mercedes-Benz superdome because the Saints crowd is so loud it gets into it that. The Falcons will give us the -- diversity there. Well look at it. Becomes a thing where you start seeing that guy -- get that seventh eighth and then twelve and you know six and then people -- little guys off the forty carries -- yeah and its he gets it is sort of rhythm and and it's gonna still a problem for him which -- passed with Saint Louis when he was there kind of what he's done their bit. But look their defense you know their defensive line. Some pretty good players -- look -- they've lost their best -- just about Lofton. What of this guy. That it tear that. The look when you got somebody like Jonathan Babineaux as a two technique that the -- there and Corey Peters and right here we've seen enough for him. The last couple years to give us problems and then. You know obviously got you Umenyiora came over in the Giants now the keys Osi Umenyiora. Of the New York Giants Super Bowl you have a couple of years ago but I can tell you that he's still obviously has a lot tankan he's gonna pose a huge problem course. On that side against Charles Brown I'm scared to death of that to be honest and they'd better get somebody in the hip pocket. Over there they better chip on him that better start knocking the daylights out of him early. To let him know that there's not -- -- be this free -- is not. It's going to be -- it will be along afternoon for our number nine. Yes Charles Brown will be basing that Raiders defensive line that he faced now I don't know weeks ago -- it's a little also -- this is the full deal and I can tell you that's for real early to tell you that. That what they've done over the years they've looked at tape and they see exactly what we see okay and if they see that and they begin to see this. Quote unquote leak leak whatever you -- -- over there for them that they feel like they could exploit. They're gonna do it and that's not that's not a good thing for us. So what Charles round you have to step up and deliver today typical pre season you have says that has been your biggest concern yeah -- -- to -- the line absolutely still remains my biggest concern that this I don't think it's all yet. All right he's the court on top -- -- this we're live and Oceana restaurant have a 39 count side of the French Quarter -- Come on out they have clearly that they should get ready for every home game coming up -- we'll talk about. The Saints defense and the quarterback Matt Ryan yeah it is fans -- here on WWL. Had a welcome back to my first save lives and got a restaurant that was -- not quite different tour -- yeah. Says here the guys' faces and getting ready court I was little wound up. Now they're in the wound up in those -- about an hour ago you know talking about the emotional things to get the The Who dat nation fired up like you need them and l.'s. Sean Payton. Is -- to lead the bet here in the -- And it's confirmed that the Saints will be retiring Steve leeson's Jersey number the day. And I realize that's truth we know how pivotal Steve Gleason was. In that game first game back of the zone on against Atlanta. And still remembered like givens. Now they'll let you know like a religious experience -- and if you if you don't remember you just look at the statue down in the zone remind you of it right so. So a lot of things going on today to keep -- Who dat nation going strong. And we keep that energy up. With that said. What does rob Bryant and his defense have to do. The -- against Matty ice to keep up against them to stop the Falcons from a running although. I. Look that's a big play offense if you could regret the big play that's gonna be a thing. I have a sister they can't bit but it all the way they're gonna be able to really do it -- -- that they that he gets the pass rush and I like it'll do for other and I have to. Either it was a poor guys that they have with the three guys they have or -- gonna have to some sort of you know manufactured. Blix is a guy out there and you know to sort of get at this point to sort of keep that it. Formulate some kind of pass rush because if you give lessons we let -- sit back there and and they pick this thing apart like it's -- skill. -- -- we don't have anybody that can matchup against themselves or Roddy White and cooler though like the guys are ours to -- physical receivers. Gonzales is going to be harder you know obviously he's going to be guys that it's this group itself over and over again that the harder you don't cover so. It it it it doesn't bode well for us if we can't get him out we got to make sure that we get out there it's a way to make a part of football who was released. That a score touchdowns it's -- -- In the way that the KG can't obvious here with that we can have that. It don't break mentality. As well look at definitely not for the way we -- 2009 and you know he saw the results there so we could. You get close to replicating that -- He meant that the thing would be if you if we could possibly do it it would be to score on defense right you know and obviously have. Mark is that it's in our favor because. That right there you know it is that is the telltale signs because of the over the paper tomorrow. If you want to have papers currently more -- he couldn't read the box scores -- you can look at the turnover issue. And you could say who won or lost the game you have to want to turnovers -- I don't know it now. Who won -- turnovers and you pretty much pick a winner. You know what when you look at the these two teams obviously offensively they're very similar to what they do you have. Deep offensively. Not so much of the Falcons defense has not the end. One of the top tier defense is that the NFL but it's been an adequate defense like last year there to allow them to escape some of those some of the games they didn't escape some games they were able to escape. Basically because they were outscored everyone do you see this as another season for the Saints and the Falcons were there basically just about school. Yeah yeah and to prove it differently and I don't say it is too. They begin to sort of -- on defense -- and we don't know that yet we see signs that it -- everybody's hopeful that it can happen so you. A lot of times you see what you wanna see you know you're hopeful that this with their improvement is there defensively but. But a lot of times that can fool you especially -- what's the real season starts and we're gonna have a it's going to be a big -- that is going to be a pretty good eye opener because this is. A pretty sound offensive play yes. And it affected -- Going to be anything at this point. In our -- is gonna have to be collected big time. Great score a lot of points to win. Another -- community 7870 says. Steve can you cover the best way to listen to the team that watch it on -- you know I could not believe that the use that all right let's think in the out of -- up there to get -- are down to TV it turned out saint radio. It's real simple go to WWL dot com right now. And you can see the list of how to do this depending on how your viewing the game whether you have. Cable providers satellite. Watching all. Air broadcast that I try to program PCR that basically could look what you can't put the black tape that with the numbers in front you have to actually program -- it. But we've got all the ways to listen even on line you can listen -- WWL dot com. That also would help you. Think it up the look like when we went under like wooden -- -- -- -- out -- that. And -- can help you that now they're pretty spectacle watched you get around the solid guys here who were on the computer -- I don't I don't which you normally do you do for. Olympic during the week I'm pretty sure you could be some all right you know right -- I hope so. I. Someone else yeah people are asking about let's hope that we can stop the run that seems to be the biggest concern. This -- -- events is stopping that wrong because of you can Jackson I think and fans Saints fans know how he's been able to -- -- -- even under. Greg Williams well look it. You can hold him to where. If they're gonna hit continue to let us you know obviously gonna try to establish that -- because that's gonna lose a lot of things offensively. And if you can hear. He's got a break so okay but it you can contain him from having like a big long or. They do they have pound you and obviously you know continue that this -- it and you know continue on third down things like that. You know they're short or second short a time where it's going to be a long day after a bit -- if we could hold them on third down. And obviously you know you know get off the -- that's gonna make -- different with you know that's going to be the story of the day to watch other people. As far as the Saints offensively. Marquis from carry the -- into. Now I think it probably. What he's always done you know he uses Ingram that he uses here and he uses Sproles interchangeably. To what he's gonna do I think he's probably gonna get the -- ball like he always does he does that better than anybody. And then obviously. You know if they look this team is built with number nine or have a feel for the -- two yards right. I don't see that changing Arnold why you would change they expected and we expected -- I think that that's what they do best or still see him doing that. Robert Meachem actually make an impact tonight. You know I don't know what kind of shape he is you know scores game shape and I don't know. If you confuses you a little bit easier -- they don't lecture of what his status is and how that whole thing unfolded while he. Was actually here again -- that. I think if he goes out and he could spot play a couple I think he's obviously guys that still provides feel he's drop off speed wise yeah I think he was just not productive in the San Diego's system. Well for whatever company is reasons whether it human Rivers never sort of got off on the right foot or you know that that this will be the chemistry here there. Roster whatever was there -- -- but it worked for. It's worked here before Brees right now and and obviously I think it has worked testament to do with number nine. He's a much better quarterback. Philip Rivers OK but nevertheless it's with -- surrounding people and obviously he's been like a great -- over the years ago why they -- utilizing. -- not just a despite it the finger at San Diego he averaged about thirteen yards to catch him here with sixteen I mean it's not. That big of a difference but he seems to be more productive in our system. I think it's particularly if the total package thing -- -- it just it was that much of a better team. Offensively than San Diego -- vehicles seems that. And -- the cowgirls everybody looks at it's as great expectations each and every year. What do they do you know doing things right I think I -- -- he could do the same thing and I thought that they're gonna do anything this year and I think the cowgirls lose I anyway and go through to him doing things. Are righty Steve court up top and Estes so we can have a game of the Mercedes-Benz superdome today -- hurt the dirty birds the Falcons are in town. To inspect the dome as Steve would say at the Saints fans are ready for it and I think -- Who dat nation. Is up for this as well we're live at -- restaurant that. 39 pound sign for a quarter -- -- -- my outlook for the -- Don't think it's been fun with you that much and welcome back to members that live -- yeah. Restaurant here on WW well and if so what a 78 because it is -- -- relief that -- All with the former Saints offensive lineman Steve court. I'm my top -- getting a lot of text today about the game. A lot of people are about the Falcons coming in as our first team at the end of the regular season. Some who dat say you know obviously the Saints since 2006 which on -- Drew Brees are eleven and three against the -- Falcons. So current coach Payton has kind of had. The Atlanta Falcons number. In the unit is about matchups go and end and taking advantage of that and you know I'd -- we got a couple of my sneakers against -- well neither of them are younger than the last man the last will be played Vegas and one in Atlanta was curious where -- history yeah. Yeah -- old. But there that's a capable football team and if we go out there and make some mistakes and do something stupid that they're gonna capitalize you know they're just like we are so. Put a bucket put anything past this team you know this is this is a target be a tough task force it down. What's going to be tough this for us running the ball to stop on the road. Offensively. Or who's running the ball against them or us -- that would -- Well which will be tough to look back. I'm not convinced that we would run the football hurry I think we do a pretty good job -- -- I know that would try to make some better balance of that seat that we can get that role and but I think stopping him only because I'm saying that is we have been proven that we can stop that anyway now that you've got this. You know 250 pound sledge hammer back there that we've got problems before. You know see how it works out I mean I think we're going to be improved defense that but he is yet to be remembered back real. -- the Texas community seventy eights have video game outskirts of twelve -- these games -- you know when the kickoff was. Living in Atlanta seem more Saints -- flags that Falcons flag. Here who does. Not a surprise I look at that's the that's the transient city so there's probably a lot of transplants -- -- -- look I gotta give a shout out. Yeah yeah and close game pac. -- -- -- There were supposed to I guess that these women have a hard time in the in the games without these purses and whatnot now. And so the come up with a great way to do that it's black and gold which which team. Colon of course. The NFL to change that a lot of fans are upset about. I disfigured recently -- film makes money and obviously if you can repeat -- the food snacks and so forth and you know you gotta buy the stuff there yeah -- -- it is fortunate sort of been -- -- At least you have an opportunity I'll -- And had no clue who loser not horror speed of these and the NFL -- towards the Falcons fans. -- have have joined us here and it's -- -- -- -- And you know we we think the Falcons fans for coming here Julio who's going to ourselves well -- of it and enjoy the food and enjoy it if that's about all you can into it like here in the city is. It's the food in the atmosphere. And we know just the short trip. More than they were here in February as well right. And I did today in February and sorry this is what I replied yet but a little salt into the 26 a lot of 7866 Saturday night is through 870. Let's see here. Someone texting we will sweep the Falcons. Needing no turnovers or -- do schools from our specialties. So don't predicted that we will sweep the Falcons -- -- the most of the experts are picking the Falcons to win the event itself right. This season at the -- possibly could be the run well look at. Based on the record what's -- what's happened and transpired the only thing you have to go on his is that where you kind of what happened last year so. -- given that fact you have to look at it that way I'd say that's only done as a group. I don't think they've taken a step backward so. This is going to be a tall order for some. And you -- the fact is that the defense is his system that thing as a group as well. So yeah. Someone texting no one at WW OO answer my question is rob Bryant pregnant now he's not correct we we know that we're back. He's just. Man who enjoys his growth. I'll take your -- and he's in the city where he can -- that he would enjoy that are in the business he's in his long version -- -- -- and he certainly is the all right 260187866. And 89 there which of those Texas they're listening to us from Kabul Afghanistan. On line at W no I don't know how -- ago that we got it over there that fans out there. -- the -- doesn't military they are we thank you for listed part of it and that makes it all the way out in Afghanistan we'll take a break him when we come back. Try to wrap things -- take a look at the rest of the NFC south give your prediction on what will happen. In the NFC south we're live from Oceana restaurant 739 -- -- in the French Quarter -- with the court I'm not -- you're listed at WW well. Had a welcome back Oceana restaurant for the third time. Outside the French Quarter -- -- -- -- this food got fans that tell you there's they still get pumped up when they hear the wrong. Well it may find it accurate enough of the good things out the things that we do have a table some Falcons fans here in the in -- -- we always welcome our opponent and we welcome them in there let guys helped me so that part of the them at a. Come -- -- look look look look. The Atlanta Falcons. Theres the runners up to the NFC championship game last year okay the runners up. They've gotten to -- -- why don't live up but they're the -- there's not that with the -- I thought I. Who knows that matter accepted. -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah. Let's news let's go to Jackie picked you paycheck you're on papers today -- Who. Who who. -- I appreciate that we -- on -- -- -- Good flow outlook. On recruit Derrick. When. It could be sport. Because it could throw. -- -- Out. Of something. That you should. -- -- off and Brett Favre appreciate -- use or. All of them out there and all of that into -- -- gets cerebral. And I'll let you know. But it only. Q what are. Your game because we all feel -- little -- active and will be well. You earn your respect -- almost getting you know. Go out there are important to look record all the -- You know looking at exactly the game is mostly plays in. You know. Football. -- A little -- and Arnold goes on to the -- rapid. -- the the or. Otherwise it. You know. -- -- You're that it. -- right Jack thanks for college. Thanks -- can be a part of 2260 a 76 the city ninth through weights that I dispirited fan -- we got some more or not it may have that if you -- the spirits they're the so. As you heard some of the the Saints fans react to it here's the more that experience showed up. Got a text that says. Hey you know I had Oceana. Order those Falcons fans in order of onion rings because that's the only Ringo we -- tax. How old. You guys are really wouldn't go soliloquy and not. The 60187666. Minute that nearly seventy. We'll take a break and be right back to the court and confidences -- alive and Oceana restaurant that the 39. And right now I'm sure. Welcome back those who have a restaurant that thirty I -- the first quarter final time for our NFC south team they've prediction brought you by rich and Ellington died in or taken out for originally. And today in the NFC south course. -- gave up the Carolina Panthers. Beat the Seattle Seahawks in Carolina the only commit ripple across the continent is that a particular. -- I think it affects -- look at the West Coast team that's got a goal in the East Coast and play any 1 o'clock time play so that's what about 10 o'clock. That they would be playing Seattle time right right I think it has probably a little bit of doing that's a long way to go I still think Seattle the better team and -- and at the end. Last year these two went down the wiring Carolina NC I was able bullet out I think. As much as I think Cam Newton and those guys are a little bit more improved this season I gotta say Russell Wilson in Seattle there. Also Tampa Bay heads up to the new -- -- area to take on the New York. Jobs I think they play a lot of their back up guys in the fourth quarter -- the Jets have anything you think Tampa beat soundly. The Jets have all the on Gary Hart hi this thing you know he's on to say the -- and yes I think. I think the Buccaneers they're quarterback's improvement. Particularly with a victory there as well and -- of course the other matchup community -- The Saints have a felt happier for -- but I think it's going to be up. Feel but the thing Thomas still think. Think probably. And life. 3031. Of my dad and 2.3 point game you know it's it's him. I think I think the Saints pull this off I think it is going to be a close game close -- one thing and -- probably come down to a couple of revolt about you know -- that we could sort of hope we're not -- -- -- struggles with turnovers. We could see your defense related. -- -- -- that I think that the way to do good things on that or something big prediction brought you by Richard -- and he died in. Or take out an original Leeson as you heard we get some more Falcons fans not in which -- always do you have you know the most part I've been lived here long time now. I've always been so proud of the ways that. That we treat opponents. You know we could rhythm and have a great time with a for the most part it's been the for a pitcher it's not like going to Chicago or it's not like going to Philadelphia or someplace we have -- fear for your life you know with us about or what little balls that you know -- Oakland or someplace like that I mean it's it's. We have good time down in -- matter who replied it's just a lot of good natured ripping and ripping each other and and of course won last week here now. Someone texas' what do you call Atlanta Falcons player with the Super Bowl ring. But the saw over point 60 what have you expect that -- it's -- they'll -- I'm not ride that out for -- for us out here at Oceana restaurant a 730 I thought I -- the threat scorer all the the court. I but Estes and have a good time today folks it joy this game. Just enjoy that well again this season does is that and his allies because the NFL season it's finally here one thing. Oh Rami and Jose -- the staff here at Oceana Dominic -- that'd be a -- on site. Each day Monica have expressed part Yeltsin also let Dave potter. Back at the studio heading master control received court not masses feel it up next -- the spotlight countdown to kick off with Bobby there and beat -- -- -- From the gate C at the Mercedes-Benz superdome --
