It's been a while the -- back -- the end we don't grow. Since there are also the guys don't Kristian -- your -- phone calls -- -- bubble for 260187. Until 385866889. 087 -- one goal wrapping up practice this afternoon. The second one of the week. Treat today much like a Thursday ahead of Sunday night's showdown for first place in the NFC south with the 93 Carolina Panthers and actually who's been battling an ankle injury limited today at practice he's listed officially today. As questionable for Sunday's tilt against Carolina. And -- on all if for the Saints this week after the debacle in Seattle it's an opportunity for. In the cannot prove that. They're not the team that they say. That that showed up on Monday and they insisted that's not a team that is. Actually representation of the Saints. Well I mean look. They ran into of those solve -- night but it's been a boasts all year long I mean Seattle if you asked me if they're the best team out -- This year and how to see him play all that often but what I saw Monday night was pretty dominant. And that he can do I think that there too when he seven point better than the sanction no. But I you know I think in this particular year that you know details saying goes to saint clamped in times from Seattle probably went nine of them. I think they're that good they're good. In -- play in the -- a long field I mean they just they seem to do everything right. Policy to top five team in the NFL. You win that final four to 60. 187 hits over 8668890873. That we -- -- actually RW well. Hokies have bear with me here you know defensively adult on numbers in website and called call letters that I get through. A between now don't work out -- is -- admitted -- -- -- went to Niedermayer when the Saints are three and three on the road this season do you have. Confidence the black and gold can get to visible on the road in the playoffs that is our. WWL dot com that people can actually there or call us. At 260187. -- 386689087. In. The SEC championship game tomorrow ACC Big Ten championship games but we picked him. In a Southeastern Conference title game in Atlanta as an Auburn or missourians. Boy -- Auburn just seems like a team -- those teams of destiny while Missouri has done gets it done quietly without a whole lot of fanfare. -- you know I remember when L if you played Auburn. In the early part of the season. And -- if you beat him by two touchdowns. -- of -- Sit there watching that game I watched and waited Auburn can't run and that offense and yelled. I don't know shoot defense is bad -- that to give an idea we've been talking about that all you all. But they run the ball out to -- run up all of the middle slight -- thing I mean these guys just didn't jump to yardage and what dale if you -- -- -- by fourteen. You know and you know in the latter stages of game lasted you have to think to myself that's the most uncomfortable fourteen point lead I think I've ever. It's been a witness to you know being. Be in on the L if you say I don't want not. In the -- I don't I don't want that's what spring border them or what but. They are pretty darn good team -- you know you can call it destiny whatever else I know this. They make the plays that they have to to win a ballgame and if something be said for that. They certainly do that that miracle finish against. Georgia it. Last week you saw that -- nine yard kickoff return against Alabama take on the one team in the country and of course Ohio State city and number two Florida State at number one. They take on that Duke in the ACC championship game there I think almost four touchdown favorites and -- Pokey would take a lot for Alabama -- city and number four in the BCS right behind Auburn. To find their way back into. The national championship picture but man we've seen some strange things happen. In the final week council of college football season. In the past. He had -- -- that kind of rather not even talk about that me you know it just seemed like Nick Saban named always popping up somewhere about something about -- new job or real possibly give his foot back in the door president. National championship game whatever else. I hope that doesn't happen it'd you know just because. This is to paddle let somebody else take over and arrange for a little while. Although although for Nick -- then you know all those reports about him going to Texas etc. To see the media is that right now and reports him and Cokie do you agree with the strategy last week. That you know to try to do that fifty plus yard field goal in. You think in a better serve the -- field position in there. Hi I mean it's not my place to say that means you know you look at. Nick Saban terrorism Mahan it's a big difference between -- to cook so. He'll kind of hard to go -- what he says but. Dale I mean I certainly agree with the fact and not let the same field goal kicker go out there and I did it to me with the thing that was most surprising is it when the ball was kicked dead. You don't none of the kicking unit. Actually I -- they were kind of just like jardin down the field like well let's see if he's got enough leg don't let thing Eric it's gonna go through the upright so I mean they they -- -- Yeah really lackadaisical. Effort if you will to go down the field and that's kind of what surprised me a little bit. It to me honestly I didn't even know that Auburn had somebody stand on meet the goal posts -- I mean 56 yard field goal is not which you go out tremendously wrong. Yeah I mean I have seen. College kickers he can compete -- five yards so. But it wasn't until the ball was kick when actually. To me when I noticed the Auburn return man stepped up to feel the ball in that it well you know -- to bring that out. In an -- commit. The Alabama. Offensive linemen you know their protectors parenting if they just got a job in that field is like me and you might need get a little bit better sense of urgency to get -- -- tackle somebody and and the Auburn guys that what we're really impressive way every one of those guys peel around and picked up but it guy and a the different colored Jersey and brought them. Yeah if I think they were. Until it gets about a thirty yard line is that wait a minute when they hear the things coming back that he had it nobody expected that I think the those -- watching at home with again. I you know becomes -- short. How wide right wide left and I -- if the ball back at center of the I mean he won't talk about Tuesday a game a memorable way. To lose a game in in you know for a those Auburn fans of those Alabama fans. They're all gonna say I remember back in and I don't that we wanted to talk -- about -- solid game we'll remember it. Yeah having that that'll be one that they talk about. And -- and their kids in Greinke is those were in attendance. I -- -- that game for that moment. If that time. And which Auburn took down the team that nobody thought I would lose that ball game two. To -- at the moment but. And you know hats off -- -- miles on it really made a lot of progress quickly going back that LSU game which they were down there Tiger Stadium. Then in the -- team that could score offensively and in really a defense that looked okay but man off it flew that it just looked like he couldn't get anything going and and evidently crank it out you know somebody said I think -- teams that find ways to win ball games like that. Whether it be against Georgia on a hail Mary or you know crazy -- play like that it just does it breeds confidence and that's why they also. It is to never give up and that but never did and Pino is does that mean there's another national championship in a victory stand that I don't know. To I mean I've seen Missouri play a little bit this year but. It just seems like there is some kind of a low. Hanging around that. That Auburn David and you gotta like it Alex did it to eight different it's not the same. But two of good teams -- for the national championship every year so. I mean he asked me out Poland's Robert. Last year of the BCS system will get turned. On -- -- -- will be keeping count the same before going to the college football playoffs the -- find out this weekend and via conference championship weekend -- top five team in the NFL you look at Seattle I think of I would agree. After -- last Monday night. The the number one team. In the NFL especially at their place listen ultimately LT and take a whole heck of a lot away from -- on Monday night just simply because. The average margin of victory for the Seahawks. It's it's really feel this this year eighteen points per ball game. Was it just the fact that the Saints didn't play their best game I did play very -- cause they said after that game. We'll find out this Sunday Agassi very good. 983. Carolina Panthers team that is riding an eight game winning streak. The Saints are at home associating and enjoy -- saint home field advantage or Cokie do you feel like this team if they can go to -- had to go on the road in the playoffs. Could make it to the suitable by going on the road whether B you know bird and NFC title in back to Seattle. The thank you come out yet not don't think it they had it now mother had to go back to Seattle. Pick it up as a two seed there is the reason why I'm asking. You -- that is to say and they got to get their first. You know I look you remember their few weeks ago. And we Carolina start out point three it was ally man you know look look at the -- schedule I mean you know on in the last four games of the season we got. Carolina twice forget Saint Louis and and we got the Tampa in on its nature of what it took time for no he -- shoot man means they'll be a cakewalk in December. Now you look at -- Carolina that the hottest team in league with eight wins and I mean they plan to -- go to football if anybody is right now. Then I. I mean to be -- out -- I think they've been playing better than the sites. So you don't sit there and say that did the number two seed. That is is still there for the Saints he had eight can't make it -- but -- -- -- as easy -- it is we've thought it was about a month and a half ago. And when Carolina finally did pulled even you remembered that they can when you an hour at the of them go -- placed out there notable but no real low on Portland so there. Those bill motor Ford Motor sports active and -- -- ally -- Carolinas start to come on their -- pretty good in. I'll vote for anybody really stood up you know it really taken notice of it. Until now that they're getting you know they had lost a game and all the time. So. I've ever getting attacks from a civil -- who -- in Carolina. It's one one of the media members out there at the start out one of the three -- To start laying ground work they rescinded their you know the start and get ready to fire. Ron Rivera in the you know they were off eight straight can't do it looks like a much more patient quarterback although -- offices the offices -- what you saw Russell Wilson in. On Monday night that Seattle offense that was so efficient. But at the same time. He can run the football they lead the league in their yards are excuse me. Kind of possession right in front of the Saints they averaged 33. This time of possession per ball game this season average just over 32. You kind of split -- that point but it's a ball control offense and that's what has you concerned I think a little bit hokey from that standpoint because they have the ability to play keep away from. Drew -- well but that's what really what they've been known for for a long time I mean you look at DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart -- both Colts had been there for a long time and yeah there was one season maybe even more than one. Did they both have over a thousand yard rushing. Hey you look at Cam Newton no way he can rush about paying I think -- gonna see more of the same. Come Sunday night if you -- Monday night you know some more that read options with which Cam Newton. And I each say what you want I think cam Newton's a bigger faster version of Russell Wilson Russell Wilson might be a little bit quicker. You know pocket but I don't think he's got the long speed. That Cam Newton is got in the mean at regressed once he gets rolling and I mean. It takes some people to get him out in the Russell Wilson does -- -- does a tremendous job yet now there he doesn't take the hits he knows when the sliding it out about. Cam Newton to kind of got that. You know every now and then -- -- shoulder and take you on so I mean he scares me run the ball more than Russell Wilson does. And for the most part makes I was talking to a -- Nixon -- play by play guy for. -- Panthers and he was saying earlier in the week that makes them so difficult is they're so effective on third and medium you know third and 53 six in that range. And because of the threat that Cam Newton brings to defense you have to defend another player. There with the ability to run the football or -- picks his spots to throw it all in New Orleans. You're on WW -- ball. Hey guys you know and think on that simple bubble -- on. On the side dominant offensive line who can run the ball at will on people and nobody touched you agree. And when Jonathan Goodwin Carl Nicks and -- Busch truck contract came up they chose not to pay those guys. And. Subsequently didn't address it in the draft as well another left the players. We're just sub par and in games this year those guys have gotten dominated in Giroux -- is getting pounded. And if we can't be O lines that we had that game we could beat absolutely would be Super Bowl team right now but I don't see it happen with a lot they have right now because they're just -- Crushed at the line of scrimmage. When it's been a struggle all year Powell I mean I don't think there's. Do you -- know in any argument or debate got me any of us over here. Jahri Evans isn't one guy that still intact there but he's been hurt all year long he certainly had played -- these standards so. I can't do anything we agree way. Following you look at. Teams that would. Have paid their quarterbacks hokey I'm talking about in recent memory and over the last couple years of the pay them on and on remain dollars and thought about the Saints. The Falcons and Ravens that Joseph Flacco Matt Ryan and Drew Brees last year as a bit of a struggle for the Saints for obvious reasons but this year the Atlanta Falcons. They paid Matt Bryant in the offseason Joseph Flacco got paid quite a bit of money there in the offseason and at some point you're teams gonna. Soft for a bit because you have to pay that quarterback is note he had no choice in and you -- not LO -- boarded -- and I'm glad I mean certainly -- -- player it was good. There probably BS I mean. Sometimes you just got to get lucky. Right yeah I mean you know it do you think the sanctioning of the Jonathan Goodwin was as good as he was when Jeff Faine left -- -- yeah David you know I think that's our meeting they got came in every played really well c'mon bush tried same thing I mean those guys came in well -- -- Then he to a degree got lucky what Carl Nicks deflated they pick -- Ambien a quality a sixth round. It's definitely let them get some. He was graded as a as a first round -- but he got in trouble college. That -- a little bit that way out you can call it what you want to and I know this he get paid like first round to win it was a and the late. So in every you gotta have some luck with with some of that stuff Indian. Apparently thank you just not got black. 504260187. It's all 3866. -- 890 it's only Jackson coming to an excuse me Jake coming. -- I elderly guy that you make it. Say OK I gotta I gotta I -- -- mean if you go out like it is and let you know and not around again it always comes up like you can't. -- did tonight -- what regain its tight games Seahawks. I'll never forget what you say you should you guys might not like we have here. But they'll the site -- -- -- -- in this game and I cannot. In you know what. I appreciate honesty in your tightness in that's like being here. Look at it don't make me real popular though I'm only and just. But you should like John OK net bunch sugarcoat everything relish you like it won't -- -- -- last night Coca. And that its soul -- It is what it is and you know what. Let's go with a real the real scheme of things you know like like you -- -- and end up and on another note. -- -- played tonight. But big change -- this tonight at at and actor Eric out downloaded -- -- -- You know you guys. I'm a little man it would be the -- They're going to card -- college get caught early and regain mosaic a period goal on a ball what should they be content and to not in -- saying well -- -- I look I can't speak third for -- Allen but I did say that at this point that time at this point in time man. This point this season. If I'm wrong match interview on me there I'll be right there and have a McGahee we champion and out eight different places with much and we'd like to. But what I'm sure -- -- I covered that game only you know somebody there to gain that just might not be aware of the headquarters rice. But it got to thank you again for doing a great job and out and I -- and comported COO -- -- can't get him in that trail next year man. I don't -- mile Gooden and now he might not go -- trauma about a boy that would job next here -- out. But I don't have a great out. All right all right RA -- to and of course -- talking about the injury to us segment where I'll get Hokies thoughts. On on that and what that could mean for him potentially go to the NFL where he might land of course -- you felt like he was playing himself into first round. Money at first round kind of I. I may already have Christian yeah I mean it but there is concern might be because of the injury I had 1988 especially with -- -- it -- that. It -- -- not a mobile quarterback and ideas so that knee injury is it that unit that's not going to be significant in. I mean Lester CO2 at some kind disastrous thing that we don't know about I mean. Look if he was a very mobile quarterback or somebody that relied -- cram a lot and you know Jake you know that's a little bit of a medical red flag. Hey you know he's he's not a -- known to be able to move around the pocket so that it it's not gonna birdie mini. The -- of who will be able online party -- in the long line. At WWL dot com. -- three of real road this season unbeaten at home the Saints had to go on the road to meet the symbol of confidence that they can. Do that of course right now they're sitting with the number two seed in the NFC in a playoff picture this Sunday -- long way against the Panthers. In the deciding whether they'll end up with a TC. -- -- -- -- the six. And quite possibly the five at the tiebreaker with -- built for that succeed they would. Own that because of the head to head competition the record is the same on all. Four games remaining for the Saints to go three and one that'll be enough to get the number two seed and home. A playoff game in the first round five but. If they had to go on the road at 33 so far this season you know confidence they can do that and make it to the Super Bowl. Final four to 60187. Until 3866. Inning 90878. Rocky in -- here on WWL Rocky. That particular call. Or go from there ought to talk to -- that didn't mean there are actually saying. Because we speak -- yeah. 02 weeks ago we got a -- Footer -- -- start against the Cowboys. You know that they. That it would what. Should -- -- -- -- it more attractive to hit. I think different chip or a terrific job and do our culture and opinion pro ball. We -- we screwed up that are. But I -- -- the weather Seattle. They've got to hit the world actually at the door. Very that there are a lot of teams that do that to a lot of teams have their their. Exactly right there cartoon. You know from the beginning -- thought the 200 student that rule book series was in New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. And and I hated the most to a hospital. I thought we go fourteen until people look -- their war goes. Probably drink too much on them. But you know a little bit and -- -- the road against -- against the -- -- are. And it would be nice to win -- game but it. In era if we go if we go to well actually look a little bit about what it's. And I think we -- I think we can take triple and -- And it what are darker trees and -- I don't want to perhaps herbal. Aren't very well on right now the -- Drew Brees say yesterday. They're confident certainly not shaken by one game at Seattle OK I don't know now I mean they had a -- push -- panic -- -- wanted to do it -- and understand exactly where the -- -- from me you look at the record in. -- and it's one of those things that we we all blue before the season you can I'm looking at me if you into predicting an all like tennis to appeal look at. He'll several of the games at. A lot of people -- does Saint Louis and Chicago when they went up there early in the season. Because of all the things you know Sean Payton and Drew Brees never won their -- step. So I mean I don't think it might -- to panic button but you know when you get down here to ministries I mean right now Colombo wanted to each jumping into the playoff. With Sean built on asylum Sarkozy. It you know you name and this your second goalie is -- to be able to have that second seat so. You know you can sit around here and what -- things to death it. The number one thing right now win enough games though these final forty pitches up in the playoffs with Shawn Green Ellis sidelined the Saints running a fourteen. Game winning streak on Sunday night. Hope you brought -- with -- -- -- temperatures drop and rapidly yeah I mean big difference that we got here until now we've been -- all at all -- it's. It's a drop gonna drop into third -- -- -- anyway I -- all of all the guys that are doing the game tonight. That -- that they were alerted to the weather change. I would hope so that is about probably don't get a little whipped. LT got no there's some showers around a so so when I was coming across the -- waving at me when I got here the -- facility I mean it was hot muggy outside it. And that we I've been out this year you could field temperature change -- and -- room as he can Allen in the world and you're on the tenth -- the pro on WW -- -- Because do. In certain what that's Rico Q are we got corporations are inevitable. Inherited to you know you're honest you know Dortmund -- -- it. But because you pretty game have to give you don't know -- -- restrict you played in the -- game it would be -- it is. According to real theme of being good -- today. We -- The chance to be and redshirt of a change and at pebble being. That's so true you mentioned a lot before you know here we may have an imperial. I mean. Being that ain't. Indicate that we get in on -- -- -- saying are we are still very good change I mean. If Peter you're of people talking today. Eluded to that sinks both. Goals. So that and seeing twice in coordinator I don't know where -- got that problem. Would debt. Really got swept last year by Carolina. But I mean again I'll and it seems to come with a master last year is -- when there. Well that book but but we we have a good chance -- going back to fiasco. And ever you know a good game in March when it. Because they talk about the Ravens get beat by -- Yeah derby that's gonna be tough Allen on all that it's a tough place to play for any team in. We'll see if they don't want to crane -- 2260187. Hits over 866 -- -- -- tennis fans in the pro.
