  • Do you believe that he will pull off this upset in New Orleans?

  • I don't And I do think it would be an upset.

  • Not just according to the oddsmakers.

  • I expect the Saints toe win.

  • The Bucks are peaking at the right time.

  • There's no question they look like they're firing on all cylinders.

  • But let's keep in mind when I know it's hard to imagine people think you can imagine Tom Brady being beaten three times by a team in his own division who he knows he has to beat.

  • Boy, that's hard to imagine.

  • But in fact, what history bears out is if one team beats another twice in the regular season, they're gonna do it again in the playoffs, because the fact is, as hard as it is to imagine that you're gonna lose three times.

  • The fact that they lost twice to that team indicates they're not quite as good.

  • Or at least the matchup isn't good for them.

  • What's the first of all states had a better record.

  • Saints were the better team, and that was dealing with catastrophic injury to Drew Brees that was dealing with Michael Thomas not often available.

  • Um, Emmanuel Sanders not available at times.

  • But now Drew Brees comes in with his full complement of weapons.

  • And what waas the issue with In terms of the styles matchup.

  • For Brady in the box with the Saints, it's that they have a front four that could get pressure on the quarterback and Tom Brady.

  • No, no quarterback likes pressure, but especially not Tom Brady.

  • When you don't have to blitz when you could just bring four and and they could do it, the Saints could do it.

  • They can get pressure on Tom Brady with their front four.

  • That's bad for Brady.

  • And, yes, Drew Brees has been less than great in the playoffs recently.

  • But a lot of that seems to be that the attrition got to him.

  • He's not a big, strong guy like Brady.

  • These quarterbacks, he's a smaller guy, like you can imagine the accumulation of punishment catching up.

  • But maybe that was a silver lining in the injury.

  • He didn't have to play football all those weeks.

  • I expect to see a better rested, fresher Drew Brees.

  • Now in these playoffs thing we have in seasons past and Stephen A.

  • I expect Breeze with his full complement of weapons and that defense that is twice so far.

  • Pressure Tom Brady to do it again and win the game.

  • Max Kellerman.

  • I don't disagree with anything that you're saying.

  • From a football standpoint.

  • I have no argument to make.

  • Other than this, I just have a feeling you go down 24 7 before losing 34 to 23 in New Orleans in the season opener.

  • We all know that in New Orleans ran away with that game the second time they go to Camp Tampa and they just blitz them.

  • On Sunday night, they were up 38 to nothing before the final score was 38 to 3.

  • Tom Brady didn't have a good game in either scenario.

  • You had Antonio Brown the second game around.

  • It didn't matter.

  • Mike Evans.

  • Chris Godwin couldn't do.

  • But so much Gronkowski couldn't do but so much I just find it very, very hard to stomach to believe.

  • As much as I love my man Drew Brees, I find it very hard to believe that after getting blitzed on two occasions against the same team that you go there and for a third time you get ramrodded to.

  • This is Tom Brady that we're talking about here.

  • It's I just find it unfathomable that there are no adjustments, that there's nothing learned from those annihilation is that took place by the hands of the New Orleans Saints?

  • I just find it almost impossible to believe that as good as the Saints are is better as they have been.

  • And even though anybody in their mother would be justified and picking the Saints for this game, I just find this to be one of those games Max that set up for Brady and the crew to find a way to escape.

  • I certainly expect the game to be close, no matter what I really, really do.

  • I do not expect a blowout this time around, but it would not surprise me at all because of the manner in which the Saints have so man handled the Bucks in the two occasions that a third time is not a charm that somehow, some way that 43 year old Mr Geriatric himself summons up something and Antonio Brown joins the fray and he's become more of a priority for Tom Brady as the season is progress, which you pointed out over a week ago, obviously with other than the additional weapons and Evans and God with God has gotta stop dropping passes.

  • We get it.

  • Excuse me?

  • You can't just be letting Fernet out there running.

  • Hopefully Ronald Jones.

  • A second will be back.

  • I'm just saying I find it very difficult to believe that for the third go round, you get shellacked by the same team in the same season when you are led by Tom Brady.

  • I find that very difficult to stomach.

  • I can't see it.

  • Yep, I don't see a shellacking either, but I think but I see a saint, I'm going with the Saints.

  • And I don't see a shellacking either.

  • First of all, the saints or at home, right?

  • And I want.

  • And I want Thio Answer two of the points that a little bit.

  • It means a little.

  • I mean, they beat him at home worse than they beat him on the road.

  • Right so far, they beat him twice.

  • I wanna answer two of the points you brought up.

  • I think they're good ones first.

  • I think, uh, Antonio Brown is a very good point.

  • Antonio Brown.

  • If he gets too, if he's had enough time now to be Antonio Brown again.

  • I think people are all sleeping on what that means.

  • Antonio Brown is way better than Evans or Godwin.

  • If he's Antonio Brown and those air excellent players, right right there.

  • Excellent players.

  • And they're not close to Antonio Brown.

  • If Brown is healthy, Antonio Brown is arguably one of the five best receivers who ever lived, and he's in his prime right now.

  • Physically, he should be.

  • So if he's truly healthy and you see him trending in that direction and and rather integrated into the team and and no, and is back to being Antonio Brown, that is a huge weapon, Stephen.

  • And that's why I think the game could be close.

  • I expect him to be featured.

  • That's number one.

  • Number two.

  • Motivation.

  • You talk about Tom Brady.

  • Just hard to believe him.

  • Losing.

  • Okay, think about the motivation for each guy.

  • Brady's motivation is just to win his always he's gonna be back next year.

  • His arm still looks like it has some juice, and his team looks poised to make another.

  • Did you hear that?

  • Get does.

  • Did you?

  • Did you hear the Oh, way, Bring up the Clippers.

  • Not like that, you said.

  • You said this.

  • Would you wait five minutes?

  • Yes.

  • Is that compared to Drew Brees, Tom Brady?

  • Even as even as his arm looked weaker to me in recent seasons, it still looks stronger than Drew Brees is.

  • I'm not talking about accuracy.

  • I mean, strength of arm.

  • I don't think anyone would argue that, and I never did.

  • But my point is this.

  • He knows he's coming back.

  • What's the motivation now?

  • Well, people might say something like, I might say Tom Brady lost the playoff game in his division right?

  • Suddenly, when you have to go against another great quarterback, Drew Brees, a great quarterback in the division, not like the A F C East for 20 years, no great quarterbacks ever so occasionally a decent one.

  • But it was the most atrocious 20 year period in the history of any division in the NFL for quarterback play.

  • And so in that under those circumstances, Brady always won the division.

Do you believe that he will pull off this upset in New Orleans?
