Morning Saints fans.
What's going on? It's game day, baby.
The New Orleans Saints are in Los Angeles, and we'll be playing the L A Rams today at 4 25 Eastern time.
Um, so basically, I'm going over like a pretty keys to victory.
Stuff like that.
So, basically, thanks that basically, states and the brands will be having NFC Championship rematch.
Saw. Everyone's been talking about all week.
Pretty sure it's America's game of the week.
I know I'm in Pennsylvania and I can watch it.
So I'm assuming that means it's America's game of the week.
So yeah, Big game.
Your game? Um, yeah.
It's like I'm so excited for this game.
It's gonna be epic, man.
Um, how many people are watching this? Basically keys to the game.
Ah, our offense is gonna have to score a lot points.
Um, Drew Brees gonna have to just sling it today.
And we're gonna have to hope we can get a run game going and all of that we have to click on offense like we did the second half of the Houston game Week one.
But Ah, yeah, That's just what we're gonna have to do because these guys aren't loaded on offense and I think our demon's gonna have a very hard time stopping these guys today.
To be honest with you, they have an elite trio of receivers and Robert Woods, Brendan Cooks and Cooper Cup.
So where I have to really step up defensively as well as offensively, where you're gonna have to match their scoring abilities, cause otherwise it's gonna be really hard to win this football game.
Um, that's one key to the game.
Another kid of the game is not allowing air and Donald to dominate us.
Um, an interesting matchup.
An interesting matchup to watch today is Ah, Aaron Donald, uh, defense player of the year last year.
Defense attack, a little slash D And for the Rams, don't against rookie center Eric McCoy.
Now we have Ryan ram check completely.
So that was absolutely a pleasant surprise, to be honest with you.
Um, so I'm really hoping that Eric McCoy steps up today and I can shut down the dominant and Donald, So wait, you shut down here.
And Donald or at least limit him.
I'd like our chances today, Um, defensively our number three corners.
I'm gonna have to just step up like P.
Williams Got to step up and play a grown man football.
But he always plays really good against the Rams.
I've noticed that in his career, most of his interceptions air against the Rams.
He just always seemed to make put big place against the Rams.
To be honest with you, I'm more concerned about um, Eli Apple.
Then I am about P. J. Williams.
Eli Apple struggled last week.
Um, you have to step it up today and ah, yeah, because Hill either have rubber woods or he'll have Brandin cooks.
Oh, I want to say he'll have Brandin cooks because I think cooks is their number two.
Guy Woods is their number one and cup is there like number three.
But we all know they're basically all number one receivers don't ever have to step up, play, uh, more physical a corner.
And we're on the road.
So it's just gonna be that much harder.
And obviously, like I said, it's a huge game.
So, um, I think another thing to watch out for is just like, I don't know, like, the extracurricular activity, because obviously everybody knows what happened last season.
Nobody wants that to happen again this season.
So is just We're gonna have to step up, keep our heads to keep our composure, go out there way.
Uh, the way we know how to play football.
And I think if we just click everything together into the day, it'll just we'll be fine.
We'll go out there and, uh, well, when and I have us winning today, it's gonna be close.
Gonna be tough, but winning in the what? What keeps popping up on my computer? But everything is just It's just the the NFL.
So, like, no games ever gonna be a walk in the park unless you play the Miami Dolphins, which, unfortunately we don't.
But speaking of that, I kind of want to go into something I would love.
Like I've been asked this a lot about potentially acquiring Mink of its factory.
And I am all for it, man.
Let me tell you all for it, and I know them.
I know Miami Dolphins will like a first round pick and then maybe something else, too.
Shoot, man, if we don't send them like a first round kid, which I'm buying with and I may be like 1/4 or fifth D'Amico Fitzpatrick, who had already a proven started in this league, Definitely.
Imagine our corner of that group that I wouldn't have to worry as much every game day that we're gonna give up 80 yard bombed of freaking Kenny.
Stills are freaking whoever you know, but yeah, getting a guy like me give it's Patrick would definitely increase our chances.
We're just having an insanely good lock down defense.
Um, the A B Lattimore and that Minka and then PJ and then Eli and Patrick Robinson and the Regal finally cut Can crawley.
It would be great.
You absolutely be great.
He's worth a first round pick.
He's worth an early first round pick is worth the late first round pick due to beast.
Um, yeah, like nobody in this thing.
But, um, so yeah, um, children.
Rincon's is inactive today again, Um, as expected.
But we have David on your body back from suspension.
That'll help out our front.
Um, so I'm sure we'll be starting.
Um, let me just go over starting lineups for acquitted quarterback.
Obviously, Drew Brees.
Uh, running backs will be Kamara and Murray for us.
Um, uh, receivers my Thomas to again, and then Szechwan Smith, maybe Austin car this week. I'm not sure.
Um, tight end Jared Cook.
Still the only two active tight ends on our roster.
Um, and then offensive tackles.
We got Armstead, and I'm sorry.
God, I'm just really, really tired.
Arm steady, Graham. Check today.
Um, and then guards.
We have Andrew's Pete, Larry Warford center.
We have Eric McCoy, all right.
Moving on to the defense.
Um, trying to remember if they want a three or I know our defenses of 43 I'm trying to think of their defense wounds of 34 or 43 I think they run a 43 We'll find out today, I guess.
Um, now they run a 34 They're on a 34 Um, okay.
So our defense to the ends will be Cam Jordan.
See if we're gonna start Hendrickson after the great game you had last week or we're going to stick with Davenport.
Um, I got to assume we're gonna start with Davenport.
And I'm sure Trey Hendricks, gentle sub in quite a bit.
And then the two d tackles.
It will be David on Yamada and it will be Ah, the other defensive tackle will be E Malcolm Brown.
Three linebackers for us at Alex Anzalone E age. A client.
I'm sure we'll start again.
I was really surprised he didn't.
They didn't start Kiko last week.
Maybe because he didn't know that defense.
So then again, it could be a J. Klein.
It could be Kiko Alonzo.
Preferably I would prefer Kiko Alonzo.
We need him on the field.
But if not, that's fine.
We have a J. Klein. He's fine.
Um, and then DeMario Davis in the middle. Obviously.
Two corners starting Horner's Lattimore.
You lie Apple P. J.
Williams obviously coming as a nickel.
Um, and then the two safeties, Marcus Williams, who actually played very well last week and shut me up that I said I wasn't a big fan of him and he just absolutely went out there and dominated the game.
So I need him to step up and do that again today and then the other.
Safety is von Bell, um, for the Rams quarterback Jared Goff.
Uh, Malcolm Brown, I believe, is his name and Todd Gurley.
Obviously, Brown's ringing a lot of the goal line opportunities, though, so I don't think we're going to worry too much about Todd Gurley.
So yeah, um, receivers Robert Woods Cooper Cup and Brain and Cookbook already talked about little bit earlier.
And, ah, tight end of these, Gerald ever it for them.
I don't know their offensive line.
I know it's pretty good.
Don't they? Don't have to like the best on the payroll is not better than are often supplying, but they definitely have a good often supply.
No injured Whitworth is out there.
I know that's about all I know.
To be honest, which so I know you will work.
They have Dante Fowler Jr.
Who had a great game last week.
Obviously, Donald, like I just said, uh, defense player of the year last year And then I don't know, there is a Bracher still Michael brokers.
Ah, linebackers, I'll be honest with you.
I don't know most much of the Rams because they changed up their team quite a bit.
But I do know that Eric Weddle is playing even though he had a nasty head injury last week.
So that's something we gotta watch out for in that ram secondary.
Um, it doesn't have to watch out for Ah, Eric Weddle.
Do tow absolute playmaker.
He can play the run. Really well.
He can also played a pass.
Really? Well, So Drew Brees definitely has its work cut out for him today as he's going against a very, very, very, very good RAM secondary.
Um, yeah, Let's talk a little bit about fantasy football about fancy football for this game.
Um, guys to start from the same side, I would start Alvin Kamara.
He always has the games against the Rams.
I would always I would also also start Ted Ginn Jr.
If you have them big play abilities were gonna be looking for a lot for the long ball today.
And I'm sure we're gonna bust a couple and then, ah, I would also start Jared Cook.
Jared Cook's gonna be a big target for the Saints today.
I'm sure they have Michael Thomas locked down, and, um, and they're eventually going to try and lock down camaras.
Well, so getting a guy like Jared Cook, who couldn't You know who we can look for deep down the field and, ah, gain good yardage that way.
And I would assume you'd probably be a good red zone target for us as well this week? Um, definitely.
I would start him today.
If you have him for the ramp side, I would start.
Either I would start Robert Woods.
I unfortunately, have to start Robert Woods against the Saints today, but, uh, yeah, hopefully you don't have to say misuse idea.
So I'm starting Robert Woods.
I would also Maybe if you have Cooper Cup, I would start Cooper Cup.
I'm not sure which one's gonna be better.
I have both on my rosters.
I don't know who to start, so I'm starting with Robert Woods going against Eli Apple.
Um, I would also start Gerald Everett on their team.
Are linebackers have been proven that they struggle and coverage, and Angeloni struggles to play man coverage.
It's tight ends.
Um, unless it's safety picks him up, I would say Go ahead take a waiver wire on. Ah, Gerald.
Every I would not start Todd Gurley today.
I would actually try to pick up Malcolm Brown and start him.
He gets most of the goal line opportunities.
Further Grams, and he will continue to do so, according to Shawn McVeigh.
So I would definitely go ahead and pick him up and plug him into your starting lineup today.
Um, wouldn't hurt.
I wouldn't start.
Honestly, I would start either defense.
But if you have either one of the two kickers, either will Lutz or what's the ransom? Greg's Earl and Greg the leg? There we go.
Or Briggs Airline.
I would start either one of those guys, two of the best in the business.
Pretty underrated matchup today.
To be honest, everyone's talking about the offenses, and rightfully so.
But the two best kickers in the NFL are also facing off today, which in today's NFL is actually kind of a big deal.
So keep an eye out on those two kickers.
See which one has a better game.
I was started either one.
Ah, but yeah, um I think probably the biggest sleeper.
If you want a really big sleeper on either team for the Rams.
Uh, like I said, Malcolm Brown's probably your biggest chance that the sleeper, um so maybe a pick up Malcolm Brown for the Rams for the Saints? Pick up, maybe trick one. Smith.
I think it's going to be the big sleeper today.
Hey, didn't have the greatest game last week.
And so I think a lot of people probably just like, gave up on him.
And it's like, Oh, he's not gonna play that much, which is inaccurate.
He's gonna play.
He's our starter.
He's gonna play a lot.
And I'm sure once he gets more comfortable with Drew Brees in the offense, you'll be just fine.
Guys, that'll, uh, wrap up the pregame show tune in probably tomorrow morning for a postgame show in a recap of today's Get him Hope you guys enjoy the game and go st
