-- first down seats will run with Negroponte he's got several left side fifteen and then five. Store for the touchdown Mark Ingram makes it to the house. And at one of many big plays yesterday as a black and gold have now won five of their last six. And the saints coming up big yesterday thirty to seventeen. Over the Oakland Raiders at the at each point the program every week we welcome at a special guest assistant coach at this time and optimism welcome him. Saints offense according to Pete Carmichael junior. Coach -- Michael thank you so much for the time and ball Bobby now crutch and a number was in these five wins we put up nearly. But what -- 100 yards in the ballots has been tremendous. Our offense to defense. -- -- -- consuming two or 96 yards passing we've average in this I've gained a strip so -- to file went rather. And a 115 yards rushing. But once that it's just incredible were -- and in those wings coach converted seven of Wales. Third downs that's that's his ties that you could come in the national football only. You know the one thing that's been -- ways like you have -- been able to get back to a good balance. Hobbled one impacts. And you know the support third -- I feel like we've still left out there. We were converting at a high rate obviously the Denver game wasn't good for us. But we're converting at a high rate -- legacy and is still some opportunity that we feel like. Probably at some situations yesterday and sort of more Americans into that we feel like we need to convert to a 100% of the time. Now -- -- Carmichael -- that have fans how hard it is when you got a stable of running backs. When you know and yards can't make the run the ball which means 25. It thirty times a game how do you distribute those carries. You know a lot of times you know fan favorite -- -- -- the army had more carries than Ingram. And then obviously Pierre he does the evil guy and -- probably put the most into the wall but how do you decide. They haven't lol who's getting -- touches. And I know we do it by committee but as far as the number. Well what we go to a game plan you know if you look at the openers that we put together about fifteen or sixteen openers go into every game. And then all of sudden yesterday we were in the red -- pretty quickly the world all those openers. And now Juan you know what we try to divide up those -- and these guys getting. For a five plays out there maybe two or three carries. Between the group problem. Also we were in the red zone. And so that not change where you are off the openers. And then to our second -- -- -- now. Came back and had a good -- drive where we predict crescent touches. And there are four -- really it was a it was a two minute drive so. I think we got to do -- continue to you don't sustain long drives -- you know give our defense off the field for time of possession. And now we're more plays more police have more opportunities obvious that we only had. 56 plays. At the end of the game so. You know we try to get him as much balanced as we can. And -- divvy up the game plan to try to try to make sure that is that balance and you know sometimes that can change with the situation in the game. Now coach Carmichael. Obviously next -- up without -- -- bit about this. Give defense a little bit of a scout report -- Harrison restricted free agent. -- pretzels they now believe is on the falcons practice squad. But talking going forward I mean boy you talk about welcome to an NFL. You going to is that front seven in the party not niners. Just talk about maybe things you can do that like chipped in with a back utilizing the tight end. To help uprising errors that success. -- they like a couple of times in the beginning a raiders were aware of that but -- made adjustments and even. Particularly that does not pass to -- or. He was it -- goes -- -- it looked executed a high level. Right you know I think. You know one of the things that we try to do offensively regardless of -- -- attack was it to try to help those guys out as much as possible what would like you -- some chips and nudges. And you know he got in first couple snaps youth and speed of the game was pretty fast forum but. As you know he got tore into a two minute tribe and as the as the game went on alternately put together pretty lengthy drive I think to -- slowed down forum which was good. And you know get right to plated like you said the 49ers and we got to account for these guys the whole defense. And so we have to help those guys now that's as much as you can. Now coach Carmichael you that we -- forever I mean it's speaks for itself. Going back to the charges days and now with the New Orleans Saints though I had thought you know all the gains up witness withdrew and you think if the rule changes. That I thought drew did ultimately it would job hanging in the pocket and take it that shot. He got brought to a three times and -- about it as good as they get is that what you see when you watch the film. There's no doubt impact you know during the game a lot of times I won't see him get hit because you're watching the other defraud the -- down field. And you know that also and you -- garage or so you know cause -- like I just got hit on the one but. You know this talk this in this durability. And his availability. -- you know since I've been with them has been phenomenal. Saints victorious just that they over the -- 38 to seventy our special guest assistant coach is offensive coordinator for the black and OP Carmichael junior. Coach call Michael -- so -- you know against these. New physical athletic tight ends in the -- like at Antonio Gates I was obviously Tony Gonzales have been known for a long time and then clock counts feet. You talk about with the patriots and now Jimmy Graham and these guys are very athletic talent at basketball type two but the but the way they use now talk about not only did the targets you say the involvement of these. A physical -- -- type of basketball that the tide has but also the way it waited position an offensive -- the National Football League now. What -- I think does that. When you can put those guys on the field and the threat of bull run impact that exist with those guys on the field it. It helps with both your running game and -- play action and I think. I think you haven't Jimmy Graham and -- to a better player. -- call played a lot easier. Because of his ability to. You know to block and it also you know be a threat downfield vertical insults. You know you've completed the defense or are you a little bit if if you can mix it up with them. Now. You know Cotto carmike when you look at and it goes way back is safe spot and fans follow the offense. When you look -- who's eligible. You know that extra tight end. You know is actually played that role in Stinchcomb was the starter. All of -- that I know which street Greg -- talk about. With Greg Olsen has meant I know he's primarily the backup make guarded senator. But then just talk about what he's done in all all of a sudden you see him eligible as an extra tight -- Well you know one thing we do is. Keep you know he brings a physical presence that position and when you play against some of these bigger defense and our big outside linebackers. It's a better matchup for us. And so one thing we've done the last couple games is that. You know we got to sit them down the field every so often just you know just keep teams honest but. It really helps with our running game being able to. Bring him in and really be scholar at that point of attack. Now could -- my -- -- you look at all quarterbacks. That are playing in the National Football League also at the college level. Though you can have probably watch some other casualties and as of observer team affairs in the 49ers but. What do you know of college copper make this thing I know is that they. The new kid running can make plays that is the -- what more can you elaborate when you look at what he accomplished. And I University of Nevada at Reno. -- -- -- that the -- production was was on the Wii more coming out of the you know we obviously looked adamant he was coming out. And he was a threat -- what's his leg and his arm. And so the production that he bought that team and in the the other one candidate that he was able to bring that team was was impressive. Coach Carmichael now the San Francisco for an -- as a ballclub we're familiar with who played him out to several months back. I think in the season this second week ended January their -- January. A talk about what you have seen thus far breaking down -- would. Mean he could -- of goods -- and -- the -- it's that he thinks that the best affronts evidence football on the foreigners -- You know we've got finished. Fishing outlook yesterday gain. We've had an opportunity this afternoon to get on to them get on the 49ers started game planning. And you just see if physical. Physical defense faster. Aggressive. And soul you know we got our work cut out for us this is this top notch defense and I you know that there is no weak spots or I have to be at our best this weekend. Coach Pete Carmichael junior offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints coach Carmichael thank you so much for the time it looked you in the -- Sunday against sentences aren't there. Right thing.
