  • do you think all the pressure right now is on Brady and Brown?

  • Well, I think so.

  • Only not Brown per se.

  • He's been out of the game for a little close to two years or what have you?

  • And so we know how electrifying he could be when he's on his game.

  • But he deserves a little bit time to get, you know things, get the wheels, get the wheels in motion and do what he has to do.

  • I still think that he'll have a relatively decent game.

  • I expect an instant impact, but he's not under the pressure.

  • I would tell you that Brady and the Buccaneers are to some degree.

  • Certainly you wanna win your division.

  • Certainly you don't want a situation where you lose.

  • You lose two games in New Orleans this season.

  • I'm looking at guys like Mike Evans to the I'm looking at Mike Evans having one reception for two yards in Week one.

  • I'm looking at the chemistry begin between him and Tom Brady that obviously needed to develop and has developed as the season has progressed.

  • You won't have O.

  • J.

  • Howard this time around because he's out for the season But Gronk has been balling.

  • He didn't do much in Game one, and so I'm thinking about Brady and Gronk.

  • I'm thinking about Brady and Mike Evans.

  • I'm thinking about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Lenin for net and Ronald Jones and what have you and Russia for more than 85 or 86 yards collectively as a team.

  • And I'm interested to see what that defense does against a Drew Brees that we weren't even sure was going to play this week, even though we all believe that he will.

  • In the end, what it comes down to is that New Orleans is 10 against Tampa Bay with Tom Brady.

  • Let's see what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are able to do.

  • Let's see how their offense is clicking against this New Orleans Saints defense.

  • Now that you've got a few weeks under your belt and the chemistry seems to be there.

  • And now that you've added Antonio Brown, I'll be interested in seeing what happens with that.

  • Because if nothing happens, I think that that's going to give us all cause to pause.

  • It would look on the surface like there's more pressure on Tom Brady.

  • He has all these weapons.

  • He has an elite defense, and he just got a B.

  • But you know what I noticed about Brady and the Bucks were quick to make excuses for them, and they don't need excuses there really good.

  • But they've had two losses for Week one to the Saints.

  • Excuses.

  • Brady just got there, and you can call them explanations.

  • If you want, that's fine.

  • But he just got there.

  • They gotta get to know each other, that there's no continuity like with Breeze, and neither team nor quarterback played particularly well.

  • And then Brady lost in Chicago to Nick Foles.

  • And it was because Folds made plays at the end of the game that Brady didn't make.

  • And, you know well, the next week he came out and much more focused than they made good on what was happening.

  • And, you know, the week before, there were no mental errors, and, you know, you can see the trajectory of their season getting better and better.

  • He gets cut a lot of slack in that way, and the Saints have been sort of flying under the radar.

  • Let's not forget before the priests before the preseason moves with Brady on the Bucks, and then Grant followed them to the Bucks.

  • And people are looking there.

  • And then the season starts in.

  • The Packers catch fire in Seattle's on fire and Russell Wilson's and VP candidate.

  • Early on, the Saints were a really good Super Bowl pick.

  • And but, you know, they were without Michael Thomas there without Emmanuel Sanders, who was a really good move in the off season to bring in that number two receiver that they've been lacking all these years.

  • So cameras not just their second best receiver like guy out of the backfield.

  • And because of this, I think the kind of sense is that the Saints really maybe aren't in that uppermost echelon.

  • But now he's got Thomas and Sanders back.

  • Camera has been balling.

  • They traded for Kwon Alexander, the linebacker, to shore up a defense, which in recent years has been good among the teams with dynamic offenses.

  • Now there's a spotlight on the Saints because the Bucks caught fire.

  • If the Bucks lose the game, maybe just got their Maybe Brady was forcing things to him, like the way when Davante Adams got back, Rogers was forcing a little bit.

  • If the Saints lose.

  • People look and say, Oh, you beat the Bucks early in the season before they got going, But now that they're going, what's up?

  • Same old New Orleans Saints look good in the preseason and as things unfold, not quite good enough to get over the top.

  • Even though we're still in mid season, I actually think right now there's more pressure on Drew Brees and the Saints.

  • See, I don't think that I don't think that Drew Brees has to feel that pressure.

  • And also when we speak about a be like the one thing I know about him is he feels no pressure when it comes to football.

  • That man lives, eats and breathes.

  • Success on the football field is just what he does, like playing the wide receiver position for him.

  • It just isn't hard.

  • It's something that's extremely natural and the people I've talked to from down there, they say he's looking.

  • He's looked phenomenal, like, obviously he's going to be extremely fresh, but he's a guy who stays in shape, a guy who works, and for all of those things that we could say about his off field life or about some of the decisions he made.

  • He kind of reminds me of Floyd Mayweather in the sense that when it came to his craft, it was always pure.

  • When it came to his craft, he made sure he was ready to go, and because of that, I put it on Tom Brady.

  • I do think this is on Tom Brady.

  • I do think there's a ton of pressure on Tom Brady For many of the reasons, Max, you always mentioned why this isn't necessarily the most impressive year from Tom Brady because we basically said You put any quarterback in this position with those type of weapons.

  • Now you add a beat with that type of defense that they would win games.

  • But what is Tom Brady credited with, amongst or above any other quarterback winning meaningful football games?

  • We've never thought to ourselves.

  • Tom Brady's the best we've ever seen.

  • We never said that.

  • We didn't talk about him like Aaron Rodgers.

  • We didn't talk about him like Patrick Mahomes, but he became the goat because he won.

  • He became the goat because when the lights were the brightest, he showed up Well, this is the first game this season that the lights are truly that bright.

  • This is the first game this season you're coming off of barely beating the New York Giants.

  • You're adding one of the best receivers off this era to are already loaded offense and you have a defense that's balling playing against a quarterback.

  • We don't expect much from playing.

  • It's a quarterback we know can't push the ball down the field.

  • I think we've come to grips with who Drew Brees is.

  • But whether you're on the side of Tom Brady not falling off the cliff or into the valley or into the ravine, or I guess that's a shallow pool, it would be for you right now.

  • He's actually he's climbing up.

  • It's a ravine, it's a ravine.

  • But he's climbing up, is it?

  • Turns out I didn't know.

  • I e.

  • I didn't know which direction I thought it was a baby pool like e baby e.

  • I thought I thought I made it clear that we would no longer entertained cliffs or ravine on this show.

  • Way made that.

  • I thought we made that clear.

  • We don't wanna hear Maxes Max, you uttering those words out of his mouth way.

  • Don't wanna hear that way.

  • Don't want to hear that.
