  • What do you need to see from the same tomorrow?

  • Listen, I know people gonna talk about Drew Brees, but I'm gonna go to the Saints on the defense, inside the football.

  • You know, this is a defense that, you know, they're playing like they're one of the best in the National Football League.

  • But if you take a closer look at the Saints over the past couple of weeks, there's some issues that I think that needs to be addressed.

  • A zit make this playoff push, particularly their run rush defense.

  • You know, last week they gave up 4.4 yards attempt to the can City Chiefs in the week Prior to that, they gave up to over 200 yards.

  • Restaurant.

  • That's something that they haven't done since I believe 1980 where they giving up that many rushing yards, having two separate 100 yard rushing?

  • So, um, when you typically over the past couple of years, typically what we see from the from the New Orleans Saints on offense, Drew Brees has steadily has steadily declined as far as this play is concerned, Um uh oh.

  • Looks like a little glitch.

  • Their defense.

  • Oh, there we go.

  • Go ahead, Damon.

  • Sorry.

  • We just had a little clutch there.

  • You gotta move to a part.

  • Would you need to move to a part of the house with better WiFi?

  • They stuck in the sucking up all the WiFi with their ticktock way with their friends.

  • There's no WiFi left in the Woody house.

  • Well, you might be right.

  • They might be on everywhere with WiFi on.

  • So But like I said, the Saints defense gotta show up.

  • If they want to make a playoff run.

  • A deep playoff runs toe, ultimately get the temple.

  • I think this defense got to continue to show up, particularly this week against the Minnesota Vikings in there.

  • And that that Russian attack with Dalvin cook Kids.

  • I gotta be on TV, Dad, I'm gonna zoom call with my friends.

  • Hey, listen, I hear what you're saying about the defense would Here's the thing.

  • Here's the thing.

  • Right now.

  • Event circumstances have conspired to make the defense look worse than it really is.

  • First of all, the Eagles air good with Jalen hurts because Doug Peterson is actually a very good coach.

  • I had to be reminded, you know, right, Carson Wentz was holding the team back.

  • Soon as you put hurts in it.

  • Looks like they did when they had Nick Foles, right.

  • Suddenly they're hard to defend eso.

  • I don't hold that against the Saints and it was going in you.

  • It's a trap game.

  • It's the Eagles.

  • They're terrible.

  • Wait a minute.

  • They're not terrible.

  • It hurts.

  • Can not Only fast, but you can throw the ball to, um And so that was one.

  • And then you play the chiefs.

  • Well, guess what?

  • You know, they might run on you because you have a lot to worry about in the passing game.

  • The vertical passing game.

  • Especially.

  • So that's gonna loosen things up for the run.

  • I'm not too concerned about the Saints defense by far.

  • For me, the answer is Drew Brees.

  • What I need to see from the Saints this week is it recovering Drew Brees on a trajectory that would take him to being an elite quarterback again?

  • You know, know his arm isn't what it used to be.

  • And he never had a howitzer, right?

  • But he needs to be a guy who we believe.

  • Yeah, he could be in the elite, you know, there's Mahomes and Rogers.

  • And then there's Russell Wilson and the Shawn Watson and Josh Allen.

  • And Drew Brees needs to be in that group.

  • If not with Rogers and Homes and that next group.

  • We have to make us believe that cause you're right.

  • In recent years, he's worn down, he's old and he gets hit.

  • And by the end of the season, besides calls going against them, he didn't look so great in the playoffs.

  • But in a way, the silver lining for having 1000 fractured ribs and a punctured lung at the age of 41 right?

  • The silver lining is in.

  • In recuperating and rehabilitating from that injury from those injuries, he got some time off in terms of football playing.

  • Maybe he'll be fresher for the playoff run, but he looked bewildered at times and confused in his first game back.

  • It's understandable against, you know, one of the best teams in football, and in the end it was only a field goal difference and he didn't have.

  • Michael Thomas still doesn't have.

  • Michael Thomas won't have Thomas till the playoffs, but Breeze has to show us has to give us reason now to think, Yes, he can actually win a Super Bowl.

  • The team should be good enough when they get Thomas back on both sides of the ball.

  • They have a great coach.

  • They have a real defense.

  • They have great players on offense.

  • They have a real number two receiver.

  • Kamar is still great.

  • You know it.

  • Breeze has to make us believe it's not simply going to be, well, good shot, but Mawr dynamic Quarterbacks were just too much in the moment of truth.

  • He has to make us believe he's still in elite quarterback.

  • Well, that that here's the problem.

  • Ask you talking about how much more can he make?

  • You know how?

  • How can he convince him to be elite?

  • Ah, 41 year old quarterback.

  • Usually that usually you're trending in the wrong direction.

  • You're not trending towards getting back to elite level.

  • You usually training the other way with father time.

  • So that's why you know, my eyes tend to go towards the defense inside the football because if the New Orleans Saints gonna make this run to the Super Bowl, the defense inside the foot off the football, they need to be elite.

  • They need to be the ones that's gonna carry Drew Brees to the Lombardi Trophy.
