Wouldn't aren't. -- resettled I'm a little cranky because I'm hurting today I actually got back on the elliptical machine in my house yesterday we took the clothes often they're running well and it's not the -- of the bank it's bothering in his truth I think had a sinus infections -- the dust that was on -- they collected all. Gone but out the Al. I David saints pre season do you want to go undefeated and he thinks it's the kiss of death. I I'm not into that whole thing group -- agree agree. In you know losses and -- its pre season. I don't really give them and then next week we have to just like here we have to error into those problems. -- Yeah right that's right now he said it totally and concentrate on the dirty birds. Concentrated in the dirty birds. Yes exactly now that once again you've nailed it. And average regular opinion polls -- AM I'm superstitious and you know look I think so many weird things down just look at the world you're right I I'd -- it upside down and look at it from if you do you do it but it's not me who David. I know somebody -- in your pants and dirty job bride. Do you think it's bad -- for the saints go undefeated in the pre season I gotta tell you I think it is I think at some point you gotta lose a game you're gonna lose a game. I don't want anybody on in the game too cocky even though I know it's not any -- -- sort -- -- starters if any will be playing unused. But he humility served accounts and -- -- it to be as hungry as we can for the whose dirty bird falcons and we have and it's all body. That every haven't mentioned yet that's -- I was stuck in Dominican program and -- -- our regular guest on. Nobody really seriously I would I would I don't want them to purposely throw the game tonight. -- You wouldn't bug me if they laws and if not I'm not implying any -- I'm just saying go out and can't sent or do you do you just drop out right wondering ought to pick it up -- -- can guarantee you'll Manhattan because you know forget I -- -- -- -- people's names down because I forget that somebody called. The first game of the pre season and said you know it does the best reality TV you concede because this is not stage this is not fake these of people trying to beat each other's brains out. Even if there in the same position not playing at the same time. Just hang on in the NFL and got a job keep their job -- yet a job exactly footer for other teams impressed you know everything the guy and this guy doesn't lie innings captured on tape so. I think whoever called and said that it was a brilliant observation I've never thought about pre season that way but it really is that is. The that the best reality TV that he ever gonna fines and a -- -- talked to Mike it to create. About who can change their life tonight do they have to do it. Stay on the saints team who may not be here when they cut it down a 53 who's gonna wind up on the practice squad who might be picked up from. Another team and who we may pick up. From another team. And also what you can expect tonight Tommy Tucker glad you -- Thursday morning saints game day here at WWI. Tommy Tucker talking about the saints game the -- final pre season game. Of the year and then get ready to take on the falcons. Next Sunday. And who Drew Brees you know has never beaten the ravens nine guarantee it. That's not an opening night win or lose because I don't think Drew Brees would even play. I think Thomas Moore said would probably play quarterback before Drew Brees tonight might retaliate joins us right now are -- WL. NFL and college football analyst and when Microsoft morning Martin secondly I would think get -- action's going to be limited to sunflower seeds -- Yeah I mean welcome on having this would preclude to game it means open economy the raw. And -- because in doing tomatoes you go out about people failure -- -- useless we ended. -- -- think that the economy had been a convict somebody else's -- Are you got a bit of practice squad that could be cultivated over that we can't and so. -- you a lot of guys like overall the spot in the naked here quite possibly they can get on memorial. It's important those young guys try to make it. Football team but. Like you know Jimmy Graham -- To breathe you know you know what's involved well well well we didn't start but he's not against Atlanta. Who Lama who who has a really shows something tonight if they're gonna make the team -- does it matter. -- -- for a few no matter what happens at fifty threes were to assess. Always. Great debate on the final. And -- -- it to me at that place kicking position. Where you have him you win you cheer him on money. An immediate and so there between -- -- Well I'll let them come -- -- They didn't know. Dreaming squad. If you walk into. And so that they watched as we get. On immutable and that now. Mike and actual accuracy because the acting field is nursing home. Actually. You know offensive lineman for whatever reason I think they keep record. Well you know actual it would -- elected just to this point three quarterbacks on this football team. So you're still a lot of -- yeah it would it would. It's debatable exactly which you. And you know what. I think that place kicker spot is it wouldn't want it it was canceled last week about to publish. In -- -- mean we've seen this game. Jonathan -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The beginning of the season one job and one beat out -- -- That spot but certainly keeping both. Although no question because when you've got the truth you know which you have. And jump and -- you know you. This day. Probably. -- in a position so. You know it was a pretty good news today. -- -- In Scotland that would in fact the -- but not all of them well and one day. And yet always. -- problem that's. What the cause the although I think it was that Obama was strong and yet really it hasn't been healthy. Every -- money that day in that way he and you can't wait. You're not going to be out Kevin that was the surprise that the deeply they'll all wore special -- And normally. That would mean you know. Which you beat this team. Because. You know he's got in the final cut. Let's take a break we'll come back we'll talk about who we're likely. To see tonight that that matches. To isolate on. Because somebody called Leo and Mike in and it's really is true and has -- reality TV you can see if you got. He got people are really struggling here and -- and out doing their absolute best for them it is Super Bowl. Try to stick around -- with this team in the NFL six when he three more with Mike to tell -- when we come back right now though tempered evidently well traffic. And I would go to Terrell Robinson I Tommy -- -- -- -- -- to tell DA about the final pre season game tonight. -- -- Do all of the NFL teams wrap it up tonight -- it they have the same time frame. Pretty much. Happening the way that we're pocketbook but he opening game report acute treatment there. What you want to do. In different game -- -- try to do it all but. An angle to this special team and special edition. Because. They specialize in every you do in football. Special teams -- probably the biggest change. -- on every team. Then anything you -- city. Intimacy and that's why he's more returns. Kickoff return that they changed the rule. -- back at school boards but he did that in -- -- Because as you get people publicly comment that. With one another for that continuity. So you'll get it now with the -- today. You know you game and argue and attack. That first game of the season what you would do it again that specialists like the on certain and the situation. In the middle. Insulin is standing by special scenes and that is that important final cut. Injuries. Slipping to second -- I would take a break we'll come back might get a couple more minutes talking about the finances of training camp and for the guys whose careers -- and after tonight's game. How much they make during camp and where they go from -- isn't. You know the idea go to the Arena Football League DA garden get a real job -- Hang out and and take a job there it's below perhaps with your educational skill level is hoping that you get the call of course we got all the coverage for you here. Right on WWL right here on that WL I should say it starts at. 3 o'clock first take resident -- former saints offensive lineman Steve -- Todd Manassas they will be live from Oceanic grill. 739 -- tie in the French Quarter than at 5 o'clock in the Bud Light come down to kick off. Mean Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia live from gate -- at the Mercedes-Benz -- And 7 o'clock game time the best play by play team in football. The voice of the saints Jim Henderson sings color analyst -- guy John and -- sideline reporter Christian -- and after the game joining -- can in the big chief. For the point after 218 am. It's ten hours of wall -- saints coverage today right here on saints radio. The big 870 AM and 1053 double WL FM right now time for -- WL first news. As a that we go to David like David I got to Texas somebody saying all eyes will be on the saints and the ravens tonight it's the only game while not really every NFL team wraps up their pre season tonight and I guess that's to be fair to everybody in terms of you know valuation cuts pick up this one drop that one and and get ready for the season starts got Alaska and their all on action on everybody's -- -- -- in terms of being undefeated during the pre season and winning the Super Bowl. Seahawks that it last year. I'll -- very ago there's an example doesn't mean a thing might tell EA rejoins -- W -- NFL and college football analyst and like when it comes when it comes these guys economy and sometimes. Yeah I think the coaches know -- -- beginning -- -- have a shot -- looking for. Agassi tackling dummies -- guys deserve a lot more respect than -- you gotta be gifted athlete even be invited to a training camp but. Or maybe a camp army and the and the saints' fourth quarterback was in name. Might -- a little bit yes. Com. Do they get paid a lot for training camp below. It it's really not much at all you basically don't get paid in -- money in here you make an NFL roster. And that's where -- -- I mean it's it's commonplace sound. If you'll all of them via the 53 man squad you give me. Your salary for the Nazis and and if you get cut from the game and it. And that's to be the league minimum -- any idea what that is for first year player. Handed it right on the board now and what I understand so there. Coming -- -- went back and it was. Really -- couple days ago the hatred triggered all will be making. That Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They hate him and it would take a pay cut which you've refused to do so they should be able to tip of the day. And it is part of the duke and while wanting you'll hopefully you make that first we -- into it. If you've seen a lot of that the players get cut they get -- them too important. You can walk in pro -- done at that point you get any basically. Per game. But it -- -- -- that the squad. You get paid -- argue salary you would get cut too late. You know let the been. Involved with this and put something it doesn't make much difference. But I think you've seen more veterans get cut wounds that say you know what he does hang around. -- that we want to pick him back. And didn't a lot of Korean accident happened in week two -- three -- veteran players and then all of a sudden the rookie gets hurt. You get shuffled around the practice squad there is also open that chest. -- -- -- I put a player and practice squad you kind of have to sneak in there if you below -- says a shot -- -- -- -- Everybody else got a shot at once you get cut -- you -- -- game design with who you want now once you sign a player. The practice law. He can't move from one practice squad for the next. Ought not only where another team can grab your practice squad later it -- big -- all on their active -- -- man's law. You come out throughout the season a player can be claimed off of somebody else is practicing. Practice -- If this sank one and got it on the practice squad they can claim him as long. He is on your 53 man squad but you can't grab another practice squad player they put on your practice squad and. There's blood for the rest of the season or from one game. Well however. And there is someone bringing -- -- -- -- little bit light grip was actually started the season. All the developmental squad. Our injuries to Sam Bradford. -- -- am trying to get you know and it will go put him on active 53 man squad. The saints decided that they activated they would have won there it remains well -- -- Mike appreciate your time are really deal we'll talk to a lot throughout the season you guys second guessing tomorrow or Monday. -- -- My episodes -- the casino -- -- will talk more about that as it gets close that you might. 64317. Before seven when we come back here for you know 2601 point seven he told 3866. 88908. Sammy who should be the saints kicker for this year should be seeing Graham. Who had one too many misses against the Seahawks to I think Islam. I believe. And lord this new identity. Stronger leg on tests of cheating Graham older not as strong globally. Hopefully more trustworthy tell me when we come back and -- -- human instinct kick him manners.
