Very good afternoon -- qualifications it about -- media here at six. Oh in the practice field the last practice that is open to the public. This pre season for the black Eagles the -- they will go inside. Thursday's inside and of course their travel Friday in after their game against the Texans on Saturday about the Hawks are California. And practice out there for the week in preparation for the Oakland making which is there pre season game. And a couple of based program our conversation with Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma takes late we will miss him. Johnson get his belt training camp -- -- also the thing with saint coach on Peyton and coach Payton on. When He addresses the media later this afternoon as well. And then ultimately in the program we will blow around the league hit on two defense counts. Covering the National Football League talk to them about what is taking place to that if they will focus in on. Most the NFC and a little of the idiots the -- will lose 60 points -- 86688. The rates in the is the numbers to get involved with. And today -- -- at -- jaguar opinion poll yesterday is Saints -- -- that long offensive lineman Jon Stinchcomb who do you think will be the saints' starting right tackle Zach Strief. Or Charles Brown duplication vote online at WW yeah that can -- He can in the anecdotes that you. I don't know holly KB Zach Strief. -- only because his experience. I think he's cable playing left and right tackle right tackle might be even better position for. His trip obviously his run blocking. So you know I've -- opportunity to keep that job Charles round draft some line of person can run -- expected him to produce. But I think as an experience. I'd be surprised shocked it was actually does not the starting right tackle. You know come -- we -- of the season Thursday night against the Packers. Would -- be would be good news things -- -- around one with that game and add more depth in our first two million I don't think they'll line him more at fanaticism because he's considered more left tackle right tackles so. Yeah that and as far as the road graders. I don't know just look at it Zach Strief in. He's trying to establish that running game just that physical presence just looking -- thing. Zach Strief we gave BO Moore and Charles Brown haven't seen enough Mitchell's round but. You know before we started training camp and it was actually I know this in you know I guess -- see some of the it was 23 days ago yes that He. And He is 24 now and cub but when they released and colon Lackey -- the shots trying to break dealt -- and that would move the enemy. You know we talked about. Salary cap issues obviously -- team about pre lockout -- Jeremy Shockey. What was gonna come about Reggie Reggie Bush and in Randall Gay. Because He was due you know 3.5 1000004 million roster bonus -- -- speculate about everybody -- that watch out Jon Stinchcomb and and and I. And -- kind of you know I'll look at Michael what do you talk about us and I'm telling you. He was too weak link on the offensive line. If you wanna look at pressure withdrew last year He gave up five. If not 67 sacks. He has -- have it and and you know you playing and injury. Injuries and all that but it you know that's just the way it is yet to built overcome that at times to the perception. You don't want to be the weak -- Of forty niners game depression recruit guys was from that right side. And became. You know find a better -- -- Jon Stinchcomb as far as the team clearly does all of the field. But he's considered an old man and hit thirty years old they won those young guys to work out so I just think He had that working against them. And you know wanna -- which street and you don't like -- basically five years younger. Then Jon Stinchcomb and so I think that's when street come about. Street comes from a pants -- offense and not the west and right Weston you know protect the quarterback so. And he's been consistent dialogue and you know He was one lute could turn out to be -- do you think about it when it's all said and done depend on what takes place each year. The two most important bring back might be the right their left tackle position. Yeah you know without a doubt and you don't if you look at -- called piquant situation I think -- football days are over but He has an opportunity. The kind of sit back. You know reported his salary. Is guaranteed this year. So and you know to would have been in Dallas means you know the feel bad for instance on because in the stands the nature of the business and -- surprise it's not this year. You know the lights it's almost catches this second win like that new fire. And maybe to play and them to a few more years and and -- still happen this year but yet that security. Haven't had two and a million dollars basically guaranteed even -- plane. You know this year so wasn't a salary cap you know issue which -- -- it was just a matter. Of trying to stay young. And and going forward -- -- competition in staying young along the offensive line. 260187866889087. Meet all the numbers to get involved later in the program -- it was some part of reports out from the field. As the Saints come out and their practice today is the last one that is available. To the public for a training camp 2000. Eleven also will go around the league a little later in the program local to -- miles addressed the media today after practice later at a program -- tossing to -- -- -- -- dot com will be with us. Think it was the full of stayed in the latest on the buy you bingo was his coach less miles -- so opening statement today when He met with the media. Pemex -- this morning we're round. Kind of in the red zone area and really kind of look at what we're doing on defense went offensively down there again it was mostly. It was a scrimmage format thought we didn't tackle and it was day. A you know relief for the first time we've been -- there was an extended go. You know post good we. Again -- more in the middle of a way to date you practice where the the elements in the in the length of the the schedules can be defeated as well as your opponent. They -- actually doing that we had a nice run after practice and now. Don't necessarily sure were ready today but like position where and I think we will be if -- -- miles when asked why He closed practices already during camp to the media. The truth of the matter is just you know we get to a point where you know. -- Frankly the one elaborated on our condition. Our health and so many times you guys come in with just one specific. Incentive which is to list the the injuries while at this that's that's not what I want so that's the -- now when I get everybody healthy. Open course and come on back and are good friends. If coach miles on a couple of his players including offensive lineman -- -- a bad. He knows what's going on peace in the middle of -- it allows guys that stand beside him. To get the right communications and understand what they're supposed to do He just puts He answers to questions fortune. Now he's coach miles on -- nominal I think He is potentially one of the best players on our team and it I would expect them to be a great serve before -- here. But that would have to be something that He would want to do and a but when I correct in my crept in mine and now. -- I think that is coach miles on an album I'm will Blackwell -- and is now. The slash here in this one or more veteran guy Irish. And -- a lot of football but release good it Tanner good guard and really play you know a number of spots. And I would expect that it will would have me. Very good fall. You know is now. East peace peace peace come and he's learning you know but come -- -- More let's let's get the back in this thing and I have been more predicting on and on his abilities. Not a speculation on the availability of Ross was -- that would be a good start the season with the Tigers in the Dallas his coach miles -- asked about Russell -- that situation. It's premature at this point. In. Right away is what we would -- answer would be you know I am I can use. Tennessee. I actually him he's a wonderful portion I think He should it's good for college football. And -- I yeah. That being said you know when I know more I'll I'll I'll be forthcoming. Why won't be forthcoming and I'll be honestly. Deceptive. There's ever coached this amount more from coach miles the game it just a moment to 60 point 7866. -- -- -- you like that that's oxy moron of the honestly. -- -- yeah. He's he's that -- know what He normally does that -- this is what are some of the yes yes that's right on WW -- We'll have three or -- practices before we get into game so -- to -- -- Thursday Friday Saturday before we get into the actual game week. So game we will be. You know the money for real good -- will will be in Oregon. With really anybody practice. And that is unless you coach less miles on preparing for the Oregon -- Saturday September 3 here a poll on the home with the Tigers WW AM FM and -- -- -- -- -- thought. At 2 PM okay guys and myself will be go for the gold in slide they'll go for the go your home for the home teams -- -- on the network at 5 o'clock we stayed at the seven it kick off. And they Wear the purple and go point out that from Oceana restaurant in the world famous French Quarter will go deep deep into the Labor Day weekend early. Sunday morning to six so -- 7866889. 0878 you beat them to get involved in. By the Saints have added some depth at running back of bringing in Patrick cops a former north Texas university running back it. Mean with the Miami Dolphins since the 2006. Seats and season giving him some more depth there. Well Beers in this seat because his numbers and holly contributed with that all the special teams. Now that's telling me and not so it you know my door closed pars joint bell. You know He had that knee injury had an outstanding performance against the 49ers. And but that's not a good sign the Nazis -- that happen. You know -- like -- 52 yards rushing five point eight yard average is having a good camp but that's telling me what is neo what was that a PCL. Maybe at the board -- -- that if I could be ready to play in and Chris I was already hurt so that your running back making count on. Obviously on that back in physical Indies have last year. And and the I've that we go look and what he's done and I bet He contributed. Probably -- high level of an adult expansion teams in actually have an opportunity as a running back but also on that back in a -- tremendous budget teams like. You know -- Hamilton. Like possibly -- I was gonna do good. That that's that's not a good sign that like bill on them bring in a pack to comment at this point. 260 what a 78668890870. Is beat them but it could -- today's pretty fan -- opinion poll. The Saints yesterday releasing Johnson's column -- -- you think will be the starting right tackle Zach Strief Charles Brown all of the vote on line. At WWL. Dot com Bobby as a the Saints continue to get ready for the Houston Texans will talk about the Texans in the 7 o'clock now. A ballclub that that the last couple weeks habits of -- and USA today about one about aryan falls to have basically an issue He felt threatened. Not by anyone but himself because He comes so -- training camp last year no basically an unknown basically -- the depth -- felt like the road they was dated him and his first year. Just got out then made a chance but basically had appointment discus. The entire season and He felt so threat that He was gonna lose the gravity gain an historic position He played through that season. With that and became the leading -- the National Football League. Yet the leading rusher and you look at -- basically five yards a carry and you know at 1006 and sixteen yards rushing. Four point nine yard average sixteen total. Touchdowns in. You know -- can remember him making an interview that is Mickey and Sean Payton talking about how close. They work to signing. You know -- and -- that is sixty minutes and it was heated between them in the -- Texans and -- ought to look alike have a better opportunity with the Texas with the saint. Because of the -- very similar story the Pierre Thomas. But that kind of speaks for itself speak. Leading the NFL in rushing. And considering. That's one thing that Texans but they can turn a corner and get to the playoffs -- is could be because their defense because their offense has been there. You know we were ranked sixth overall total offense with the Texans were third last year and they -- afford passing seven rushing. Averages 24 and a half point that Newman nights they're all top ten so -- all of it has gotten it done in there and lost. Was a big part of them keeping that balance attack in that putting all the pressure on match that conflict probable though they keep keep you off balance. With the run and pass and the watch semantic game last night. With the Jets. I think defensively. It's amazing Wade Phillips where every is that I think He actually makes it big difference when He is that the coordinator. I think you know Libya had a good thinking gain for the Saints and Drew Brees to get offense. You know click in and not have any about a autumn best quarterback in these yeah and not have a -- clothes and now from -- gets Wade Phillips though the Dolphins and coach drew saying. You know I don't know if He ever was in this position. I haven't three consecutive three and outs having a sustained drive. At the start of that game -- him he's getting a touchdown. Our field goal and a big challenge for that Gregg Williams defense a point against you know that Texas office. Which we have said this before if you look at Sean Payton Drew Brees has been here. The Texans are very similar as -- how consistent they've been -- they've been a top five. -- it's in the NFL but it hasn't partly -- to get into the playoffs. Because their defense has been so bad. All right it's Bobby -- going to be coming up next move is it with Aggies this is ESPN. Dot com NFC south -- He will be with -- He just a moment to talk about the whip that is in its latest -- -- out. The black and gold here long it's WW and whose time is 430 type of person -- would go to -- -- Well Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia coming up later. Next now we will we that was sent -- -- Jonathan Vilma also hear from Saints coach Sean Payton welcome -- and C south blogger for years the end. That Compaq is this case -- is now pat thank you so much how are you and I guess I SO -- -- where you're at right now. I am at home approach and that is very much like the league trip and on the road obviously so eager actually. But then yeah. It a little I'm -- here so. Didn't. Didn't caught up on do my laundry on a. And you know pat just look at after the one preceding game. You know look at the Saints in the 49ers. Obviously they got after the quarterback. -- six sacks. And then you look the Falcons their first performance in in Carolina against the Giants canyons. Actually can you didn't look more poised -- thought He would of which will overall observation of -- of everyone in the NFC south playing their first receiving game. I think everyone got -- Off to a good start and the only team that walked by. That hasn't really -- law they were upset that he's not being. When the starters throughout the were in game so they got out. They are who we don't dissuaded. First -- -- and He touched the ball. He went for first down so. Obviously looks like he's. He's going to be the real deal for them camp -- Played a very efficient team I think in the city there -- to a we better last year which you know is definitely an issue to them last year -- -- -- faster. And then Carolina. Acting extraordinarily -- -- I mean the numbers were not spectacular. What He He made few big plays. When He was going completions that -- that far off a couple of dropped a couple of the coverage He did not make -- big mistake. And He can continue to be active week I think that he'd probably win the starting job over Jimmy Claussen. I and then saint. What really stood out meet. My way up against a number one you mentioned about and getting after the quarterback I was absolutely. Absolutely stunned. Is it that way I think Greg Williams who is blitzing so much in the first preceding game. And that no one thing I love about Greg is now regrets that -- years. And you know that the defense. I've been -- ended up creating turnovers last year so I think He was sending a message that a you know we need to get back after it now and get the pressure this year in and get those turnovers and they in the Mark Ingram -- the other thing. It the obviously that touchdown run when we're the thing of beauty. I think he's gonna bring global dimensions of the Saints at you know they haven't had since these McAllister -- -- At full strength a few years back I think that's a real lot -- real positive start for all or that He opting. And you know pat are you surprised -- -- a week before a week for training camp. That's it you know you look at move possible rules you take into consideration salary cap and they where they are as a player. And you know and how they played last season and and I said this week for training camp. The only surprise that Jon Stinchcomb is like go by the Saints. Because He was -- a weekly on that offensive line and nothing against John a great guy that. Well look at last year He was thinking about five or six sacks in that right side. And -- that came about were you surprised and do you think as the extra people in the have been the right tackle come Thursday night against the Packers. Yeah ops -- so. I was not. Much like -- says. The Illini I have a world respect for the guy and you know one of the nicest guys in the locker room always a go to guy for the media. And I think you that there later. In 2009. Last season -- the drop off. You know you and I can see it that He thought He looked out currently. -- they were all talking about. You know I know that I'm playing with the injury last year that made played a part yeah you know he's getting older I think they've. You know -- the -- -- seeking have been in in seeing dramatic improvement there. And you know I don't think it was really so much -- -- move because they they really been able much salary cap -- -- -- Appealing that they had to get younger at that right in and that you know the guys pretty well -- all -- Gerald brown is. -- a draft pick from a couple years ago they want you know on you at some point. I think it was just signed to. The open door for those guys go out there and beat. And now -- which is found this out. I guess about half an hour an hour. You know look at -- -- bell hit 83 all purpose yards 52 yards rushing five point eight yards average was kind of my dark cars. Considering. You know right now with the injury Chris Ivory am speculating he's going to be ready probably -- The middle to the back into the season knowledge like bill haven't the PCL injury. And then they just signed Patrick Cobbs. From the Dolphins and I'm just speculating considering the depth not running back. That Patrick Cobbs probably contributed in a good way. Those Dolphins special teams and they wanna see what He can do in that regard to help that unit and obviously you make the team that you beat them back. Yeah I would Wear -- Are interesting but yeah you know obviously. In those things. Appear to be loaded at running back. You know if there's one it's LP last year showed us. You can never -- running backs and -- there are guys that a lot of times. In addition playing running back plate special teams. Obviously that's something that they do in and now I'm sure that -- read -- everybody in. But in you know as a special team guys load at running back. And have pat and and -- -- what you seen and you look at competition outside linebacker. Obviously. Because Jonathan Vilma and middle until line Dunbar going back to more familiar spot that way with the Boston College. You know Marvin Mitchell in the long part of the team it. When it all shakes out who you think will be the starting outside linebackers it's like if John and Agassi is is healthy He would definitely BO one of those two. Yapping in -- ER. Then you know seeing and hearing and good thing about cam. And I think he'd get a real shot. If he's healthy he's kept him out there as a starter. But they're also very happy with will -- and not. You know he's been I think one of their pleasant surprises cute guy you. In time in Seattle basically a backup and special teams player -- but the think obviously saw something in him that they like and that's what they were. Willing debilitating. You know bringing me as a free agent and He has not disappointed that He actually. Surprise that. Then and He maybe when He won the job done -- yet He can always fall back on got and we. -- you know obviously a little bit older but a -- guy who knows this system. And B -- -- you can put a little longer until it is is healthy and ready. And early bet that. Greg is this is ESPN that decked out in FC south blog that always a pleasure thank you so much for the time we appreciate. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You're listening to that you get -- There was back while I am Deke Bellavia disease of opponents that are. Hot. Really the Miami Dolphins obvious -- two kickoff returns out -- we -- it -- the net with twenty -- attorney -- He tackles. Yes those I mean because you look at the the Dolphins running back situation well if -- and it's always been basically about it Ronnie Brown curricula isn't He was part of the depth so you know He had to do is on the special teams. Mean even. You know biggest forms and trying to set him apart return our kick off return in. You know your responsibility. Are you block in the guy he's supposed to do and if you are blocking the guys closed or you get them well you block him. You know so yeah I'll think of the play the Saints obviously. You know did their homework and you know knowing that He possibly could help upgrade in contribute on special teams. 260187. Let's go to John here in New Orleans on line 1 John good evening thank you for calling WW. -- -- did you. Say and questioned. -- calm. I I know that's true I'd probably if you don't mean. Felt PGA program. I guess they wait till final cut down of what they have an election or something. Put that to replace that that. Yeah I don't I don't go out there. I don't know who's this is the and it fell -- I don't think it's true. You know -- might be you know Agassi but He was cut them part of that antitrust lawsuit. But you know as kind of a joke and I say -- that is going back in the eighties that. A lot of players several wanted to beat the players. Hour earlier you know because you Graham as an inning that the union and you kind of like you know fighting -- and you know the perception. But I don't think the Saints held that against Johnston missed all but they have had incidents in the past where. If for a player rep was real vocal and navy. Team and want him around and become in the play at air you know that that maybe. If if it wasn't hands down they would have better players the -- -- looked at him like he's too disruptive in the locker room. Almost rebellious to the players but I don't think that was the case. Which it on the news is more of him. You know I can't -- And they go to -- on or right and what you haven't a blank sheet yet. -- -- let them -- exactly. Yeah before. Yet. They have an alternate right now have the final The Who that is. And and I'm sure drew probably. Wouldn't mind I've taken that leadership role but they will vote amongst the players and avenues player -- once they have the final -- yeah. I happen to know a guy not popular with the players that to Richard. His lights from the -- on it and that's -- -- acknowledge thank you end up. And so. It spoke highly area. Bomb. Obama. What's -- been true but. Eddie mentioned it's been home was to appear as well. Yeah yeah I was that don't really represented the players Saints players and temple will inform. Throughout the process so. Yeah that's a lot of extra work a lot times. In individual players don't want that extra headache. You know I have to do that they kinda wanna focus on their own careers. And so yeah so you know he's taken responsibility communicate and all the players when you are. That -- and drove recognized it's -- in a nice job up against when. Well -- got to get a low blow that's to the bedroom -- -- children's miracle longtime columnist and sports on -- Saints you know so -- -- -- issue and each year we get into it always takes -- -- to me treat them menial Tuesday when and -- there.
