Talking about The Who dat nation and they really behind the scenes and are they or what ever reason bombed out about the Seattle game about the Saint Louis game and about Carolina and feel as though. The saints should even take a flight and played a game I don't know why people aren't as fired up as they should be and and the idea here for a -- are you fired up are you not fired up and money if bank. There's not as much excitement over this playoff game -- only 118 is getting and and arrest them made 32 minus eight when he'd. Four -- 24 album didn't David Lacey you would think. -- yet yet made the playoffs that you get everybody excited. And if they win the air when they win here on Tony it's gonna take that monkey off their back in and then don't rule anything out. So you tell me at 26018720386688908. Sony. Do you think there is the adequate excitement over this playoff game and if it's lacking why gagging and six teams go from meets. Conference means twelve teams totals so you take. It's actually the better -- -- if -- take twelve out of 32. That means one when he did not go out to money teams did not Gaza are soft united one of these NFL cities. Where is the season is already over and maybe you're looking at rebuilding with a new code that's over and done their -- shop and for coaches and players and things and we know that's like from last year so you're not not not about shopping for coaches -- about it being done so. I just don't know why people aren't in more pumped up about the the saints wild card game to -- another one says. Tommy the reason is the defense is so injured. That the united feel more optimistic yet is there were not so many players injured but. At this point I don't think there's anyway the saints can win but who dat baby in -- united everybody's -- injuries. Time a year yeah and it sounds like get. I don't off fear factor or something that's going on here yeah it's like you know all don't hurt me and I'm afraid to go there and. -- -- Like going to be like all the upgrade again heard -- it's like a relationship he had to be only in -- I getting get much out so let me know if you're all in for the saints game to mar Mike narco good morning -- on -- WLU all -- All -- our. -- he. Beat this week has been a problem. Right now got him. -- -- -- The yeah yeah but we -- and I don't I don't put upon. As not only that the public people and you knew that perfection. Thanks -- if we don't. Put -- In the it was but -- the dilemma to the game it was. Quite please with them. I don't read it but two senate he. And innocent. And so that it would. It would have a. So why do you think there's not as much excitement. I don't think there is is there should be I mean it it does saints are playing in a playoff game tomorrow. Prime time I would think about -- Wear my purple and -- a date yet purple and gold purple and black you. A lot of that went public and it's happening until that. Marco Island in. The definitely. Big. -- -- -- -- Lieutenant is one you -- And saw me again that's about it that the meant by it and -- haven't. You think people are afraid to get their heart to the sciences time. -- and it's what we can you don't know who had been you know you don't you don't like it didn't. This. Not so. -- -- spotted with the newspaper that kind of thing. And I. Applied to do that wanted to -- especially. At the Katrina and so that will -- monopoly they wouldn't. You know it was attacked. Keynote -- and paprika or publicity. You don't have to give it -- Attack -- -- team that differ from these folks thought. That to me that it. We're told them. The more than you'd -- Martin's basketball opinion I was. It's as good as -- it's like them. In New York is. Family here is what it is Mike. -- thank you man alleged cult are happy new unity and that David and onto -- He unseated their way David you're on -- W on the morning. -- and Tommy are. You know rock is Russia and why you didn't understand what people are delighted -- but you know -- shall never won a playoff game a little worried and and -- So it's easy to understand -- marvels such buy it for all I can. You know understand that there are out I can be a real much early days and bill churning out by such a delicate -- -- -- -- -- -- Are used saints fan -- -- Dallas -- Man a year ago. I -- glad you called David you may be. You get that taken objective look at it being a Dallas Cowboys fans have you had a bet big game tomorrow would you do. Well no bad but it outlaws Tibetan prayer and I looked up fully -- equals and Lleyton three. -- -- Today. And an eight out -- betting guy but how how much would you be in for. All while I have not Erica again I'm not a bad way and I'm just trying to figure out how certain you are in his objectively and you can you look at this chaps are burial. All the trying to have -- wanna play outgoing and I don't like it's gonna cherry. CB will you'd be all -- David the -- are you are all areas I don't push any -- -- the -- the land.

I got dollar and I thank you it is so 1878 till 386 exit 890878. Yet think there's the appropriate amount of optimism and excitement on an of this playoff game lord god forbid. As the U who has The Who dat nation just give up already on a scant you know Ricky Jackson says he -- -- just say -- -- And I'm not. As a little pessimistic yesterday and yet the thinking about it took the emotion on ultimately did not match ups under the weather and -- -- his -- ago winning game I really do and and I think. After that bad monkeys off their back. Confidence means a lot and I wouldn't rule anything out from there you tell me what you think. Lisa Slidell higher under the W well thanks for all. I found -- comments from the last caller -- they've never won a playoff game on the road it's to our recollection they wanted to blow on the road. Yeah I think that the -- will tell you that that was technically a neutral location and then of people are games while people who went to games that is more like a saints home game with the well I understand your point I'm just saying what people and gonna call and say Tommy would you think about The Who dat nation are are they as excited as you think. They should be -- and it is this same feeling that playoff games and seasons in the past have had. It true that are all on board -- always. The true fans via. Suing the naysayers out there -- you know okay. So you're not concerned that they lost to Seattle big disappointment they losses Saint Louis when they had a chance at. Take care business against sinking Carolina they couldn't tell you you say this is what irrelevant and that's a brand new season. I think I think big island and new attitude in. I think they can do. I don't appreciate you colleagues and a nice new year. -- height 2601878. Till 3866. And 89087. You'll try to get to you pretty quickly. John -- good morning or -- WL. Morning Tommy we're gonna win because we're the better train. Chile is -- -- Atlanta compared the stamps. On the list smeared notre puts wind machines. The line. And inspections you know on the field we are simply the best entertainment will not be able and our receivers. Do you think any prepared at all hours they'll they have a good running game. Well down. And I'm not yelled and screamed yeah that'll -- -- for mark simply to better train the more experience stinging. I'd much rather have Drew -- and -- all globally denigrate the rookie. We have more experienced coach we're gonna win mark and in its source you know -- Seattle is not unbeatable children lost twice recently and want to go home and I think they peaked too soon. And I think we're a to -- Dreary season like beginning tomorrow we took our lumps were about to I think armistice -- there -- some brought -- or we may be. Running the little better tomorrow with him and so I just let drinker court he's about to peak in. And gain some momentum and I think people or. Being may be cautiously hopeful -- something I don't know about. You know hundreds of other people. This site are simply the better team when more usual and you all Lynn. Panama Somalia and I think is seen as -- great -- to go into -- -- Coke at a won't get that much so well -- more would better change. What is unless there's -- score you win it makes it incredibly difficult to trouble while we are the better we will. Thank you haven't had a good -- -- weekend -- -- it is. Interesting that the saints gonna have to beat to bird teams -- order to get to the NFC championship and that being the Eagles -- on having a pep rally for The Who dat nation today get ready for the Philadelphia game tomorrow. And -- text here that says saints fans are taking a realistic point of view. Which would dictate that the saints are on the road which they are bad team they're playing in bad weather. As well as they lost four of the five games defense also lost two key -- defense of banks that they were a good team. They would have won one of the four lost and in playing. And home wow and another one says. The saints never won a playoff game until until. -- team dropped the ball saints never made it to the Super Bowl until. A tough game against Minnesota. One of the greatest ever and -- -- -- putters there the saints had never won a Super Bowl until quarter pick Peyton. Keep the faith Joseph and Ali keeping the faith. Hey you keeping the faith.
