Think it's the one handle the -- again in my BA bad from TDs seafood in the French squad took one out Jonas and listen to the point out to sound authentic they say it's came with Bobby. And TDs in the court. Welcome back it is about like countdown to kickoff -- Kasey Kahne and Bobby -- -- -- Bellamy a way a big big today in the NFC south Tampa takes on Carolina and man of the Kansas City. And of course Freddie do all it does once it let's get a full -- as we go on the road the NFC south. With Christie Garrett. -- Opposition appears Kristian -- And finally week one of the regular season our first full Sunday -- football steal and a Falcons head west to Kansas City to battle the Chiefs in their opener. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan says the season over is about sticking to a game plan and making adjustments and you know. -- the focus has to be on the rock solid with our game plan and I had a really good understanding of what we're doing. And what we wanted to do and and being able to adjust to whatever we see throughout the game. Without his battle with Chiefs at noon in arrowhead the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers clash in the division in week one. It's heretofore coach Ron Rivera in the Panthers with high expectations. Stuff because you're on the road it's it's it's it is your opener. The new regime so it was going to be even tougher guys I think and value our big thing is we still take care of our own business we -- we do and Alomar situation and circumstances of just play hard and I'm so I'm pretty excited about. Rivera talking about the new regime -- -- she got out takes over for the -- after leaving Rutgers for the NFL. -- the bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy talks about defending the ever dangerous quarterback Cam Newton. -- as though remains an athlete but not only that he had simply the game play he's Smart he will give him enough credit for us Marty is. Mean you do -- is -- you can -- a rookie. Mean he also -- before -- -- -- -- Raymond James Stadium will be rocking with optimism. As the -- Arab begins in Tampa the Panthers and Bucs kick off at 325. Finally right here to Wallace Robert Griffin the third makes his NFL debut in the superdome today as the Washington Redskins take on the Saints. RG three says he's not worried about the loud crowd at the dome. I think war is a bad -- Chara to worry about things these -- rare form and I -- I think Jim -- take care bringing coach only can make sure my mom on its clear how you know I have on certain plays and wanted to pay attention to. That's -- you pay attention to don't try to make the game harder than it really is. The Saints embarked on a season without their head coach -- Sean Payton serving a one year suspension. The play of quarterback Drew Brees might be more important than ever Brees says the Redskins have an outstanding front seven on defense. It's dished out. They're tough been both Iran and and get after the passer you know that's a good pressure packages clearly do I think they're just near their better group -- that that. He plays hard plays well they're used to playing a physical division. It's on today at -- who dat nation right here on Saints radio. Four on the road in the NFC south I'm Kristian garic on the New Orleans Saints radio network. Time Christian is leaving Chris again he is on the floor of the Mercedes-Benz superdome right now. Taken out the work counts for the players it kind of get out and warmed up this morning -- -- -- -- Saints have a reporter Christine Gary Christian what's happened down there. Deep right now young players start to come out and do their individual warmup drills before they go into the locker room and certainly get dressed and hopefully come out for the team exercise. Other team portion like it's any concern about Darren Sproles who was sidelined the entire pre season he was out here -- really really well. And showing know lingering effects from that that knee injury that kept him out the -- entire pre season so. He's out here running around also waiting to see the defensive end Will Smith is not going to be out here woman out momentarily. After being reinstated by that panel on Friday out imagine him being placed on the active roster. Tells me that he's going to be up -- suited up and ready to play against the Washington Redskins also Marcus Colston who was up. Limited all week in practice went with a foot injury he was out move around pretty good don't almost as well. Since Saints have a more Chris again Chris -- -- which he'll wind Bruce Smith gets back out on the field. -- things -- are right -- Bobby Hebert of the television coming up I would hear from the players the coaches themselves yeah it is opening day to day in the Mercedes-Benz superdome in new kick off New Orleans and -- -- about the salary instead. It's -- the latest radio network. The -- did management ever -- Indianapolis I didn't make a veteran who he had been making Perez threw the ball over the bills head that I you know you see a lot of that in. BI did you decide each day instead of Ricky yet Goodell. It's not good it's good all -- Iguodala. This it's the dog's -- radio there were. And today's game is being delivered. By the satellites and the officials as visible by the Saints radio network called the satellites and at 5048. 80466. This to brought kiss your sports network. He is by rebounding -- -- This is about my countdown to kickoff coming up obvious commentary at half time and then of course after the game it is the point after what the Saints taken on. The Washington Redskins five quarterbacks starting in the National Football League today all rookies including the two most heralded. The Indianapolis Colts and number one overall pick Andrew Luck in the tournament there once he gave me a lot of thought. And RG three Robert Griffin the third and Bobby you've seen a lot of quarterback to play throughout the years in the last two years we've seen two of the better ones come into the league. And that is obviously Cam Newton a year ago. And what he you don't -- -- big into Arizona and then and today. You zero Robert Griffin the third it's hard to compare it to it it would be wrong to compare it to but Robert Griffin the third a lot of similar as you say it. So what Cam Newton brought to the Carolina Panthers. Yeah dig. I think that's buzz -- early we need all hands on -- to go to contain him. We see Cameron jardin to build upon as a rookie season were not only. You know an every down -- vendetta Q we can rely -- but also again after the quarterback as far as sacks. Hit an outstanding game of against the Texans. Why did you do that their regular season. The you'd say you know how coaches say that sophomore season at second year. How you know. The stud players they really take off you look at Patrick Robinson from his first the second year how much better if he got. The one important area though when you look at it if I'll -- can create turnovers. That's one thing the Redskins last year if you look the allow the 126. Points in the fourth quarter. And -- -- score a 153. So I think to close -- games obviously coach Shanahan to can be focused in on that. And then also on they were tied for thirtieth in the turnover margin. They were a minus fourteen we -- not winning anything. With -- minus fourteen to turnover ratio. Now the stakes were tied for nineteenth zero minus three fatigue thing about that double digit negative. Territory turnover ratio you have that. Nobody you don't go into -- -- be interested -- -- as the game went polls. Do reforms RT three and a turnovers are because -- fumbles. Or getting interception I think that's gonna be key. Where the states could win handily. They plus one plus two and a turnover ratio. Well once heated defense is the middle of the defense -- safety slide down deep and that is the Saints out of Puerto Christie Garrett caught up with Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins to get his thoughts on facing. The Redskins offense that featured. Think Robert Griffin the third. This city has kind of been through obviously -- An offseason and I say this and I think we'll yes. -- -- for you guys and always will -- you guys just coming diversion do you all understand that as a team. That's my -- it is just look at the relationship now it is who has this city yeah. They -- two things they lean on -- yeah. Honestly brings him an inspiration to bring some kind of a sure thing we're going to use that same inner cities refers -- -- and really practice and really. You know so was so supporting your -- no matter what was going on us so it's always been a give and take relationship since I've been here and you know even before that. So I think that's what makes the mormons and the sale so unique in that relationship. Friends I know whether. Do you guys relish that as a team in terms of you know I also another it is motivating factor you guys don't need a lot. Motivation but I mean do you guys -- playoff -- -- the running as well a lot of guys enjoy playing here in other guys who come to things may leave me go to other. The organization the cities storm is different body and that's because. Shooting New Orleans is one big family as well as the -- are our team is a very closely team. And you know it's funny how are reflections you don't reflect our city our city reflects this. What do you think is going to be like and I don't consider an off season and merchandising there's frustration that you have right now. I think he's gonna use not things that you know. I -- we're good we're there. What we went through his organization and our season to finally get back out there -- no -- -- -- big and then frustration if you know march and Isaac coming through. I'm in a lot of fuel cells and then I just just from comic relief and really give back to Sunday and we -- -- -- Obama. -- resolute -- -- and I'm really excited for our fans see you back editing and excited for Christina thanks. I've been Malcolm Jenkins and Roman I'll put two safeties that have. Something to prove but it's something to prove it out but I think that we a whole lot better shape in the Redskins safety position. The big guy being right now you -- nobody's think big. If you look at safety Brandon meriwether. Here. The if you look at -- A pro -- of in the past well he's great to ligaments in his left the -- Monday will miss two to four weeks. So he's not gonna play against the Saints you look at Reed Doughty is listed as Meriweather is back out as strong safety then you look at. Gomes -- also be an option but a lot of pressure on it may do Williams Albert do Williams. They're trying slowdown Drew Brees and all -- I don't know how they gonna do it. Not one thing that front seven and you look because these guys can get after the quarterback. I mean I'd have to put them. When you look at them as much as any outside linebackers that were there a pair and a blocking -- tie you to contain him. Is -- Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo. They combined for sixteen and a half sacks last year. They've forced seven fumbles against each other that -- you look at the quarterback hits. It's like riding it eighty plus quarterback hit so. Read what they get the ball out of his hands the yards after the catch I just don't know. How the Redskins linebackers or safeties. Can guard Darren Sproles Jimmy grant UK double team everyone. I think that's one area that he'll be able -- of -- look around that pass rush. Quick hitting plays. And it just yards after the catch look at Steve. The amount of yardage especially Darren Sproles but also. Jimmy Graham when they get their hands on the ball how many yards did they get active back there might be a simple eight yards -- All of a Sunday -- fifteen to forty yards and no matter what kind of -- record through got to get the ball does and like we always says the Saints have somebody -- educate W everybody. Thought I looked at the Saints -- -- great hitting and obviously tries to run the ball as the daughter to strengthen the Redskins with a right seventh. But get the ball -- a -- hands and take good shots ballot didn't. But the reds get to have a dominant pass rush who want drew -- -- ball I. Those big hits so. Quick hitting throws. Well you ain't getting you playmakers hands and let -- make -- yards after the catch I gazette mainly I don't know how the Redskins detained -- and trolls aren't immigrants. Dominoes is fantastic deals for you -- online Domino's dot com. It's about I can't down the ticked off on the New Orleans Saints radio network. -- -- thank god everything else but I official bay hill of the New Orleans Saints at the -- they sound dollars will be a BBC would have to Chris quota for the Puerto with a cajun cannon. Bobby any event where we could have Hokies now what I think is -- -- guys on that some of the program won't bring -- -- -- the Hokies a call hoping component Cowboys. And good morning do you dig it out -- -- you know after the big win an L if you had last night didn't this being in the opening day of the season I mean. I know -- the guys that are really enjoying yourself out there. Mother nature provided us a little relieved with -- cold front that came through I mean what a better way to start. That 2012. Season and nice weather. I mean to Tampa cure outside right now 77 degrees clear skies and mean. He made he's around 65%. I mean it just doesn't get a better net even though we're inside in a dome I mean it just out. A perfect kick off to the season and it kind of expel -- and a little bit from a the standpoint of the commissioner. Well not the commissioner but the panel that. You'll roulette Will Smith Johnson Vilma Scott G. Well those dad would be eligible for this weekend I mean just like it's all good news coming at one time. Now I hope you look at the running back position and always -- your opinion on this. Well though without Darren Sproles be fit his game every time -- got the ball. In all of look at it -- here -- -- the running backs in the NFL we get to see this in this game. Darren Sproles averaged six point 98 yards a carry that in golf running backs their league's fiftieth again. Well look at that the Redskins now well what was that RG three and you always try to make it he's one dimensional but they are get a good fight committed. I'll look at that they have a running back Evan Roy Stewart who averaged five point nine yards a carry it that you look at at royal blue junior. Who was four point two yards a rush out there. Here's our -- -- second year guy that they also have a sixth round the rookie Alpert bars -- Florida Atlantic and like I said they won't do it by committee but. Don't you think it's going to be important that. If that we did not want to let the reds get to built to run the ball against his. If that's good obviously -- -- levels pinnacle of what RG three if they can't keep the Saints defense off balance. Well Bobby I mean you know I am about their running game I mean you may be -- still -- stuck in -- dark ages. But I think -- you have to have a solid foundation and that is the running game I mean couldn't they couldn't happen. For a better person Arnold -- weekend then RG three from the standpoint that he doesn't have to worry about carrying a running game on his legs if you will pardon upon. I mean he's got some help bacteria in the back feeling you want out. Did that young quarterback. You if you coach and you want him to get comfortable and -- game -- the best way to do that is get a good established running game right here so. They're not just limited to one guy I mean they they have a rental players including Robert Griffin that can also. -- take off and run so I mean I think that's a huge benefit for him to start in his first game I've heard you talk about it all during the off season. And through training camp that you know. Robert Griffin the third his gun again and doctor nation into the end felt like no other come in here in the superdome in his very first game. So he's gonna have some trouble communicating. Within receivers his offensive lineman -- backs but -- win here when you have. Somewhat of an established running game -- like to rich kids who have been in where he's not forced to scramble all the time. -- have four stood just you know say I'm really happy and throw it and you know you have to make placed -- Robert I think he's in pretty good situation right. Right there from the standpoint that. There's going to be so much noise in the stadium yet look if you just don't turn around hand off to somebody that's pretty easy you don't have communicate with those guys on the outside so. I mean this is not. You know this is 888 pushover. And all for the Saints defense in college ball game today. Because that means he's still gonna NM when I say gee I'm talking about Robert Griffin. That he's gonna have. You a little bit of a learning curve out there but I think it's. A very comforting situation and know that he's got a pretty solid running game behind me and he then had to go out there taking care of the team is. I -- on the football. Know you look at on the Redskins Stevenson side we talk about their front seven. And you've heard me say this too also in the offseason and training camp number 59 the red London Fletcher. None that collectively I think you know you have a young London Fletcher and Curtis Lofton at tackling machine that young Jonathan Vilma. I know you got to respect -- that you talk about old school aren't meant. London Fletcher. But think about this whole he has answered the bell 228. Floor. Consecutive games then he's played I mean he's been on the all decade team I had that thought this is the miss Brett when I looked at it. But I'm not an above average team how can you realistically now people are trying to reach the Sixers are. Well he was over a 180. Tackles last year so they got to be a misprint result that was the coach's film if you look. Look he had just the 2012 season. -- at 1000. 688. Total tackles the sixth 2012. Gets a little bit all the bruises and all that and how -- that -- Been able to answer the bell so I think -- get his feet too young. Tell linebackers that Curtis Lofton are a few young one young when they want old school and at Fletcher. At that point you got to respect what he's done in the NFL. -- Bobby I'll tell you it's incredible and I mean to me. You know it's one thing for me to sit there watch him play on Monday night Sunday night that are well we don't get -- noon game because we usually play in. As well but when you start here in the comments from opposing players they Drew Brees. I heard this morning he just like. Then you know you think a guy that hit that far up an eighth and he loses dampen that you know maybe he doesn't react quite as fast he's not making -- plays we normally make. Drew said. If any thing they get if he's playing at least that level par right there if not that may be even better so rough they don't watch. Yes Demi to listen to Drew Brees say that I mean here's a guy that I guarantee he's watched all four pre season game. That the Redskins -- playing let's look at it on and Pletcher the first couple ball games you know he probably wouldn't enamored about 1012 snaps on them like yet but don't you go back to that third. Pre season game when you start to get the most time and I guarantee you dream and watching him in this guy is still there in. He's going to be somebody that the -- after -- with today but. I mean I'm just I'm just glad to know I don't know exactly what the official injury reporting is right now. What is sounds like to -- should have all hands on deck. I'm sitting here right now watching Darren Sproles workout though there are feels he's good to go. Jimmy Graham Marcus Colston you know will he be able I know he had a little bit. Limited practice time this week but looks like to -- -- -- pretty well have everybody. -- well expected. Offensively anyway they get out there and play so. -- man I'm looking -- start this whole thing off right didn't. And now think there's in doubt that we all say this thank you gonna win but I don't think -- this Redskins team is an easy pushover and I'll. All right let's take you with things that I reporter Christian Smith there was a Christie Garrett who's on the field watching -- Smith Wal-Mart. Christian. I tried pitching -- as Saints treated just a couple minutes ago that he Will Smith will be active in dressed. For this game so -- Smith coming off that suspension obviously being listed on Friday he's gonna play against the Redskins on wheels without. I don't know if he'll certainly get ready to go so he's gonna be in this game. Thanks Al Arab more aggressive and one of 32 voters many -- -- -- land of the National Football League. We'll continue it above -- count down to kick off on the New Orleans Saints radio network. Welcome back is Battier then they go to after the game going along about it's a point out different DD seafood in the first quarter -- delicious seafood enjoyed the pony up on the car I rubio. And golf -- well. Do you has been a great story for the Saints the first 23 seasons last year and this year now he gets a chance to make his mark. Wide receiver and Joseph often caught up with saves and a reporter Christian gare. Just talking about. You're during this time last year you were on injured reserve yet I hope certainly don't and -- in the now he usually going to be ready to go through -- he's -- guy dressed and active. Is it doesn't come along way from my answered him -- and you know from -- doing -- lesser named -- -- You know on. Speculation I guess coming in this year with the departure -- -- -- there might want to pursue him I don't know had gone on to actually mean going. Did you especially fascinating Massa -- -- -- once -- a long time coming but I still a long way to go we surprise that they -- as many receivers that didn't. I must say surprise because I mean you look careers it's simply keep six receivers so actually I was 56 receivers I mean I think we and I've seen that. Sometime last week their run and led the positions that they -- became so. MM I say I was surprised because all of us -- we did the things that we -- -- to do in order to stay on this team if it's not -- team that's my other teams so. Mean we plays that we did things they they like sending him wanna risk getting rid of you know that that they can use so many camp so. What's your goals this year on the field against the Redskins personally. What person goes I'm not amount have any number of those -- -- mountain passes then you are my nose guard there -- -- my alignment -- -- what I'm supposed to do and I'm not there my my my opportunity is gone and you're going to take events and I don't wanna go out and make any mistakes at all when you -- -- Redskins defense what do you see especially in the second personally -- Jimmy facing segment will you look at their trust them first -- front seven is this is great -- -- mr. Simmons lesser and then look at this thing in there and he had. Guys again Oklahoma there's a great many great for many years now. That's Nationalists and -- their corner -- and in their their bag and -- -- safe he's safe he's tough physical guys so. There's -- mean you know challenge and hunter and especially me being essentially a rookie again so monitor play against these guys is -- -- be you know tough since I was in some of the fortune. Joseph is an all -- to leave. Pre season or regular season about coming isn't determined to either way. Tried to pretend I'm -- -- different last year it's kind of like. Like there's. Look -- Packers to regular season this kinda. You know good warmup for a close and personal look at him more serious so I mean freezing is -- -- -- on -- is nothing good I mean it's. Not mean anything compared to you know the regular season guys hit a little bit harder there. I mean there's quite a lot faster on remembers things more clearly so you've just got to go out there and on the on the same page as I mean did the same thing is those guys don't meet the -- -- just MRI and another. Joseph thanks Osama selective don't think you can -- And by that is Joseph Morgan is saints' offense tried to attack a 34 scheme and -- coach Jim has. Well these caught in the middle -- in my design and Jumbo Lima bloody Mary Rizzo and I just made it. It's sort of point out that they had done and yeah this blog but BA banner eighteen is seafood go 101 yeah this afternoon. After the ball the -- -- to start Joseph and I feel Kansas wanna. Okay. They. When I was looking at it is his -- comments it was the best defense against Drew Brees of the Saints offense. Controlled the ball time of possession. If Drew Brees don't have the ball in his hands any canes score knowledge good resurgence they impressed about the Redskins team. Even though they weren't productive last year -- -- that Shanahan got to get it done. I mean it's -- it's amazing. Mr. Snider. That the owner of the Redskins all the money he's put it today then and haven't had any results. Well we do look at the Redskins won big -- did last year. What have blown sustain drives. Now the Redskins rank tied for second in the league. Last season with 33 drives and Pitt plays a more. Guess it was double won the Saints I -- really really look at and you think is -- I'll like three or four play drives -- who score quick. We can do -- we can have a three or four play drive or we can have a twelve play drive. The Saints were number one with 3810 play drives. The Redskins were second with 33. The Ravens had 32 the Colts -- -- once you look at those long sustained drive. That's what they -- they're trying to do RG three make plays. We're trying to control the ball and obviously get points. You've got to the free. And it's above my cab down to kick off on the New Orleans Saints radio network. How this segment and a lot of text messages who is Mike is to create -- analysts here and my today. I guess to say I was the -- of the National Football League as rookie quarterbacks owning five Danny you're a fraud and Robert Griffin right inside the superdome Andrew Luck. And of course Russell Wilson and Brandon -- and five rookie quarterbacks might want to get everybody's trying to find begged gunslinger of a lead up to the promised land. It no more rich or the NFL Europe cornerback you know I used to be the norm and not you got to play. But I'll be honest with you gotta have the chance the most success in year one and broke the World -- and a cast around him and Bobby can talk about that. It's a situation where. Sometimes when a cornerback. It's what how is supporting cast around you and right now I don't got the better supporting gap. Do what you look at in Indianapolis the walking down or any of the other spot therein. Thought they were absolutely -- the at. Opportunity. Completely well and we won the guys I do think that we gained complete stick out. 49 at Packers Panthers up. And checks and New England. And I think we came out there and what we watched tape with the kind of 103 games I think everybody good people -- the -- Now you know Mike obviously great news for you and I both commented on you know what he has the end. Will Smith you know people wanna sale of Jonathan Vilma is available available. He's given what injury at any as a practice. Which Spagnuolo and the defense so it took me will cement. Considering he played the last game against the -- did that matter UN there. In practice this week he knows what they're doing so how could you not have Will Smith in there to make a big impact hopefully against RG three. Bob you've been there because the money you have what you -- arguably without Jabari available today. You can make a pretty good argument that came along with Curtis Lofton or attitude and good players you're out on the field and with this type of athletic quarterback. You've got to be able to get bumped them up about where you can -- delayed but also -- -- are -- one -- And not look up let -- -- -- little -- gonna show up and play vacant field. Rookie cornerback but the rookie -- make rookie mistakes I don't care how good your. But we're not done much and Maine to California Milton -- we -- cockpit and even the starting line -- a big. Now might this put the Redskins cannot afford to do and boldly deep do do it today hopefully they do have turnovers. Look we will minus three last year. The -- -- the wide Redskins and have success they went thirtieth in league. Minus fourteen in that turnover ratio with two areas they did they sell and what your comment on this is that you look at. With the business hits against Arenas had an early in control the ball time position sustained drives. I didn't realize his but the Saints were double wanted to hit play drives are more. With 38 I would guess it was number two the Redskins with 33. And did so that's a big positive that you look on the flip side red zone defense. The Redskins to -- fifth in the NFL. Only given up a touchdown percentage right on third party 4%. And you look ahead about most liked -- at the party niners the Ravens that's pretty stout defensively. I think you know they gonna probably take approach look we can't stop Drew Brees ball but -- we give poors field goals instead he'd given up -- will have a chance. Obama think you go back and Mike Shanahan Sweden -- you don't run the football field with -- -- David Mike D'Antoni didn't matter. Haven't done running back on this football team they do not committed but that's what you want that that was announcement because I count that stop because the -- -- Ottawa on the football on him. Jimmy Graham and Marcus -- in the mold but you got to keep the contract terms downfield they can not match up. Typically almost five standpoint we have. Graham and COLT and I've been despite what -- the ensuing and against the Redskins and going to football. If you don't you can't just stop and run and that's why it's great in that will Smith and Curtis Lofton back in the lineup. Now Mike what do you take you -- take on the Redskins -- obviously Brandon meriwether. Heroes of -- bullies bring to the -- knee ligaments. On Monday he's going to be as suitable for weeks and you look a lot of pressure -- -- do Williams but what about I didn't know these guys know what you to comment Reed Doughty and then. Behind Doug Gomes RR -- I mean who are those guys that mean that they don't you think Drew Brees is going right after them. This safeties especially. And now -- any place to get a waiver that -- Absolutely not been been known for them run stopping skills but again got past got the ability is questionable. And that's why I think you gotta roll let I didn't -- down if you along with the longer after the -- include. Course goes straight. He's out of the box. We all know that we did beat him and been able to run the football talk about New Orleans now. Birdie big one -- -- rush for a 140 yards or more. -- they're journeyman saying he exploited everybody's got a weakness has got a good football I don't think there's things that game that gun slinging it game. Don't feel if you survive the advantage of Graham and cold during the long. I will come back and get myself on some other big games the NFL and his prediction. It's above my countdown to kick off on the New Orleans Saints radio network.
