And welcome back to WL first news sites -- in -- Tony Tucker this morning on this -- yeah I know it's it's Christmas week tomorrow's Christmas Eve. It's a cloudy morning but it's. It's going to be sunny soon we've got some cold temperatures coming in here for. To Christmas Eve and Christmas Day it's it's -- experience so you know it feels like Christmas however. Many of you I know very disappointed because the saints lost to Carolina. The saints were playing for so much and yet they didn't win and I got nervous I get nervous when the saints stopped Carolina. And and Carolina punting and the -- we're gonna get the ball back with a three point lead. With my -- about a minute 57 left at about about two minutes left in the game I shouldn't get nervous at that point I should be totally content like like they're gonna do it. But what I've seen this year is I've seen a Tennessee. For Sean Payton to. Give the impression. He's playing not to lose. As opposed to playing to win. And I realized that it does come down to exclusion. And if we've gotten a first down fine. We didn't get a first and run the ball if it didn't work that did the screen pass was a -- and and let's be honest about it's it's it's it's it's fair to do this. Drew Brees has been off and this was not the first game he was off. -- he would -- under thrown some passes he's made some very accurate passes but he has he has been off. And that's something that the saints' Drew Brees should admit to themselves. If you wanna join our show with failure comment this morning about this -- losing yesterday to the Panthers delicacies are not out of it. The saints -- -- five if they beat Tampa Bay this week. They go to the playoffs. If they don't beat Tampa Bay. They don't deserve to go to the play offs but it really would be a shame for the saints have had such a good record. They're gonna beat teams we get to the playoffs if the saints don't I think they will -- -- physics don't get to the playoffs. There will be teams where if -- records worse records that do get to the playoffs but that's just the way the system works. -- the states are playing at home the -- once again did not do anything to silenced the critics that say. They can't win on the road -- from Okaloosa barrier on WWL good morning. The moment. Animal. At the plate that we. Do this thing that would that would. Definitely be now you. We with we it's proper don't cook and the team communicate that the vote them out. We say we're perfect our big what they it is it particularly that we. It -- that don't go to the idea is that we -- -- a -- doubled ticket well. -- that be the last books out there are paid me. -- to beat and at the plate but what they thought they did it team that. We don't go out. We could read it out in that we got a record that we. Well I guess you can always look at it that way or bury him I'm going to call the Sharia you know let's look to the optimism but let's also hope that the scene is doing the same thing we're doing as as fans. The team needs to be very critical of itself. And and even if you have a good record. If you don't live up to your expectations. Isn't that. Worthy of criticism whether it's a saints team or any employee that you you work for our -- it works. With divorce for you to summary is that live up to their expectation. You don't applaud that you don't reward that you say hey you know what you could've done a lot better than it. And that's that we need to be with your kids you want your kids. Which you could still be critical of your kids would they don't live up to. The potential. I'm -- -- atomic Tucker mark your comments are next on every WL. I -- -- Friday night to Fulton street and it's it's it's beautiful and a trillion. That is the real Santa Claus and by the way here's a real reindeer there. You know anything. -- different here as what chemicals -- real reindeer. They're not is a biggest years again but decades of real reindeer on their similar -- is the -- ranger. Also I there's a camel they have a real Campbell down there kept looking for a wise man and I swear I looked around and I did not see one. Anywhere but to -- to street this is really putting it also takes time to go through some of the hotel lobbies like the roosevelts the Ritz Carlton on canal street. Avarice and asked and again if Fulton street is it is nice and canal streets decorated also along the a lot of area -- Jackson square and the river that is old old decorated so take some time to feel Christmas. -- in New Orleans and also there's there's laugh in your part which is decorated and a celebration in the -- we're talking about the saints still losing a game that they were leading and they've issued a one game but they've they lost. I put most of the blame on the play calling on that last series here's a -- -- Ingram Ingram Ingram. And coaching here's another text Drew Brees. Blanks five toner turn overs in two games. And he couldn't throw forty plus yards in a hail Mary. It came down five yard short and you know everything worked against the saints in and in the end there more stat -- usual. 37. Yard punt. I'm from Lake Charles Roberts here on WWL good morning. -- in their Christmas so I. Like make one quick comment about so -- Japan's -- before I really did the mother outrageous development. And end it. We this thing. We have a good team about totaling five point six teams in the league we've been elected and we say. Could do as good as we do wouldn't about bags denied coming -- would beg him. Anybody want to put bags don't put it like TD. From -- it and that the inflated. Man win and Drew Brees goes up and the inception and patent stuff and -- be mindful. Let it get -- You know Robert I know they did Brees has been under a lot of pressure today and frankly I would have ports Charles Brown back the end I don't know whether it's just a pride thing when you make a decision to change him but Armstead was. Was not doing the job and I would have put Charles Brown back in hoping that they're putting him on the bench at the beginning of the game would have. I've changed is -- attitude a little bit but that's something that it didn't happen I understand -- is under a lot of pressure but there are times when he is not under pressure. And he he he he was throwing the ball well yesterday. But you know what bill paying always. Put -- -- -- -- but lately. Lately and I think drew as a he's applying Quebec I'm not trying to take that away from. But man he put -- in the hole. With those interceptions and again respect that we complain that thing. It has a great defense like like Carolina we can now -- at -- -- -- And put those behind. Me that it time and time again. -- yeah I'm I'm going to call the show I'm gonna have to get to a traffic -- thanks for sharing your thoughts and albeit a Merry Christmas. Are if you're on hold stay with us for common right back with more of your comments on studio for Tommy Tucker seven point. Monday morning it's one -- crystal swing tomorrow is Christmas scenes and it's starting to feel a little more like Christmas I hope you're gonna. And a good mood but I honestly I've I've talked about this on my show before. Not everybody's in a good mood not everybody. Can deal with the imagery of the sites -- the sounds and the smells of Christmas for some people terribly difficult time of year. And it might be a difficult time for you I wrote a blog about this recently you know it's on the this two page or website at WW dot com. A recommended -- to you if you are having a difficult time or if you know somebody who is. I mean it's okay and I had my difficult times very recently my life. And -- -- love Christmas right now I loved it last year but before that I was heaven very very tough time. And I guess one of the best things that you you can hear is that if you or going through a tough time. Chances are things are gonna get better it's not always going to be this way and it's. It's -- a from Algiers Ramon your -- WL good morning. -- -- Yeah. Everything used it to on the money. About the site. I got nervous just like you did. In the I -- 200% -- maybe. Plain -- Win them you phrased it. One -- they get overrated. You need it was going object. That you really need to take some of the -- in -- -- -- seem to be so sure about everything. Removed a caller. And eased me into mistakes at critical to. They sort it -- Robinson on the outdoor walls and obviously all peachy but yet. It's on -- on the ball eighteen and beat Russian twice I just don't understand a lot. And his use -- the correct -- -- -- argue media that. They. And I realize a really great and I'm glad you called the show it I realize that indeed the -- the saints went to the Super Bowl didn't we'd lose the last three games of the season. But there was something different about that they were basically just give him through the last game it did did -- and it didn't even matter. But there was something different about the attitude of that team the team was hungry this team this team is talented. Team has a lot going on. But it doesn't seem to be as hungry. And -- -- don't like to bring this up but I think sometimes this can be a factor in life in general. Sometimes. Sometimes people start to settle. Once they get that big contract. Sometimes people become complacent. They're not as hungry. When they get that big contract I would hate to think that that's something that may have happened with Payton and with priest from willing Jeff you're Debbie WL. -- do it on Tuesday morning. -- I'd like to do. Government spread so popular opinion is if you are in it get talked a minute. -- think all this bashing at the open ridiculous. -- land and grow. By stretch the imagination at all. You know the -- as -- parity. And apparently. They probably are happy that the that. Believe it pretty much surrogate out short. Of that being. The did you -- receivers. Receivers and a glimpse. And that you know can chew. -- give her options so. An average at that. And I disagree with you a little bit on call. And had not been going -- not at all they cut. Outs. Our game as the -- play really well so her respect children -- so. The -- At the end game. General and the -- and not a when. There. -- Nobody figured that now we are accurate and Ambac -- And in an -- law along Il. Drop it one game and also let them get. You know the -- -- Carolina went. To new. He. You know that girls or change. You know it's no big plays. Proper. You. Will grow. The spotlight which we did all. That -- All right Jeff I'm I'm glad you called the show I don't think this is bashing the saints I think this is legitimate criticism of the saints and in the same way that. You have to be critical of your kids you you can love your kids but if your kids and failed to live up to their expectations. That you should call them on that. The fact that the saints have won ten games that are still in a position to be in the playoffs. I think all that's wonderful but instead of making excuses and say well there's they're doing okay. To me this is this is part of a mentality in this city and I I was born here I grew up here. There has always been a tolerance for an acceptance of if you will on mediocrity. Until Katrina. After Katrina this city went on a mission. To be great at everything. And I think the saints reflected that attitude. So when there's something that. Is it as good as it could be instead of saying well you know that they're still pretty good yeah we get acknowledged that there's still pretty good but in other cities they don't do that. They say you know you you need to be as good as you can be. And why should there be that pressure to be as good as the saints can be and when you when you start. Saying OK well Carolina's offense hasn't done anything all day so we we it would not worry. That is playing not to lose as opposed to playing to win. Or your comments are coming up at 7:31 on a Monday morning I'm scoot it for Tommy Tucker here's another WWL those updates -- -- Chris Miller. This is sort of like favorites Christmas songs I was secure compilation CD that I have in my heart. I put this song is recessed Saturday afternoon. But until we wish everything could be like Christmas and just what the song was was brilliant and just made me. It may be feel like it's christmastime. And it is it's Christmas week. He's. Wrong. It's a tough Monday morning even though it's Christmas weekend temperatures are -- -- in the lights are everywhere and I hope you get your Christmas shopping done as a joyous time of year but if you -- saints fan it's a tough Monday morning because the saints lost to the Carolina Panthers and it's a game they should one. It's a game they could've won they were ahead in the game. And and when when a team stops the other team and you get the ball back with a three point lead you shouldn't get nervous but that's exactly when I got nervous because of what I've seen from the saints. So far this season. This idea of playing not to lose. As opposed to playing to win and that seemed to set in toward. The into the game. We got Monday morning quarterbacking are coming up with their Christian -- Drew Brees it's gonna happen 7:45 this morning so what is Drew -- have to say about the game following the game. You'll hear it right here -- WW and if your saints stand I look I know this is difficult it's it's. It's hard to pull for the falcons. But we need to pull for the falcons we need to cheer for the falcons. Against the Panthers this coming Sunday. I don't know if you can actually cheer for the cheer for that it felt as it's kind of hard to cheer for that you know what what we're that your -- but we sure hope you win. If you're -- stay with -- we're gonna get right back to more of your reaction to the saints. Losing to Carolina. It's a game they should've won. And even though the saints attended five and Steele I think destined for the playoffs if they beat Tampa Bay this Sunday by the way they -- it's been moved to 325 this Sunday in Mercedes-Benz superdome. There should be concerned because of the way. The saints are. Playing in a very tentative manner I've screwed it for Tommy Tucker will be right back Debbie -- -- well. And it's a Monday Morning Quarterback under the WL with -- sideline reporter Christian Derek and Drew Brees is -- sounded very disappointed. Does it do any good to get really mad at yourself five I don't think I would be very angry with myself if I'd field two to perform it wasn't all breeze. The offensive line which was terrible. And I I thought I'd I tweeted this out at one point during the game like I hope this isn't about pride you make a decision to bench Charles Brown. I think it's -- put Charles Brown back in. And -- it was kinda putting me in backing and in that game because -- that was just not getting the job done and I don't think you would have been any worse with with Charles Brown. -- if he's punished in his given the message hey you know what you'd you'd better play better or we're gonna bench you. I would've thought that maybe he would have come back and done a better job but again I'm not the coach. We're not bashing the saints weird that is simply. Talking about wiped. -- could be better what could make them better because this is a team that is not as good as it could be and that should be disappointing forcing states. I your reaction will continue if you're told stay with a -- scoot -- for Tommy Tucker. You know last week we figured out that this Santa Claus is part of the NSA. He sees you when you're sleeping. Nose when your -- you know when you've been hammered -- And is there so I don't know maybe that makes it part of the Obama administration. Yeah our congratulations to Jill relic she has won the French markets coffee. Christmas gift basket. And that includes a three bags of French market coffee mug 25 dollar pay deals gift certificate to boxes of the single serve coffee in a poster by local artist turns -- -- -- to 85 dollars for an giveaway and other gift basket tomorrow. And we'll -- a winner of the -- coming up vote later this later in the show so. Stay with -- I'm -- it for Tommy Tucker we're continuing to talk about the State's laws super team obviously they should once those get back to four of your reaction. -- Elway Euro and to -- WL good morning. Literally that things need to be running back. That can pick up the -- still -- big. It's not getting the job done. Dutch and I'm limited. -- blame. It on Sean Payton -- blame it on the plea. Because when you would you would you put the ball in the players' hands they're supposed to do with big do. Okay. In. Leprosy they need it -- in. -- on -- that rugby team and rickety can be you know -- -- in the -- walks and they just don't have there. There's so many times though that running back occasionally has been marking union -- -- big run yesterday sometimes it's been Pierre Thomas and sometimes it's been Darren Sproles but it. Admit it would kick in these Olympics on your coaching. Yes that would the year Thomas and also give you would think there strolled okay war more and dollars a season flashes of brilliance but he has not lived up to his expectations and he's supposed to be. He was beaten the -- Well it's -- that -- that right now in this -- the future like well he's he's among them okay. But the thing is if if in -- getting out there and you know. Game. That you want and need to do. This. This coming draft from enough. Listen to. He's he's going to be toward. To do to get -- where. Eakins. It'll -- may turn out to be a great player okay. What you need to do is draft be. It -- -- need to get rid of the Hillsborough. -- would have put Joe Brown in the game yesterday. That it would have been the worst -- it will put the thing is. You need to look towards the future. Toward the site. That's -- that's what this season. If duke beat Tampa Bay nickel and on the role. OK and you know Halloween is on the rolls. -- unfortunately the saints are doing anything to silenced those critics Elway I I appreciate you taking time to be of a very Merry Christmas. Here's a -- the airline is not looking just on blocking for the running -- I -- that's true of the offensive line is not and blocking for running backs. But it seems like the saints -- very predictable and I shouldn't have gotten nervous. When the saints stop the Panthers. And putt the ball Panthers opponent to say I shouldn't have gotten nervous with two minutes left. -- a three point lead but because I've seen tendencies of the saints this season that's when I got nervous. And from. And let's see how close are having trouble with this this one particular line here so we'll get back to college just a moment a from a plus -- -- -- -- WL. -- And more politicians on this press conference he -- it. Well. We. We. Call people. -- Certain that you know and then. It. As the reason she is ours to. Supply or Egypt -- -- career. Don't. Touch it mark. I'm gonna have to get through news break I appreciate the call on Drew Brees does sound very much like a politician after this this -- I think there's so far too much emphasis placed on statistics. And records and got a text about this just a moment a governor's thinking about this with all this talk about it Peyton Manning sitting there a single season touchdown record. Yesterday. OK that's fine but you know what people get hung up on stats and birth records and it really doesn't matter all right we're coming right back.
