good evening slash Good.
New Orleans Saints fans.
How we doing to date Michael BALCO here? A little bit of a stuffy throat, uh, fighting some sickness.
That's why I didn't hit you guys with the postgame report yesterday.
Um, little bit sick, but, you know, I'm a grinded through free.
Oh, um, I kind of wanted to go over.
Ah, yesterday, obviously was Thanksgiving.
Um, I kind of want to go over the postgame report.
Kind of thoughts I got from the from the Saints Falcons game on Thanksgiving was very late.
I was very tired, Ate a lot of turkey.
I know you guys probably felt the same way.
Um, but, man, I had to stay there, grind it out, watch it for my boys.
It was a great game the whole time.
I really enjoyed it.
Um, and most important thing is the New Orleans Saints got the dub NFC South champions for the third year in a row, so that's always a good thing.
Um, one thing I noticed from the game was that Taysom Hill is a freaking monster.
Obviously, any time we played primetime game and taste some hills just always out there bawling show in the world He's a freakin stud and that the NFL has no answer for at all.
Um, he blocked a punt early in the game, scored on the drive that he bought the pun on, Uh, it was a It was a little shovel pass from Drew Brees.
Drew didn't get credit for the touchdown pass.
And then later on in the game, he ran for a 30 yard touchdown.
So that was obviously really exciting.
Um, yeah, all that.
And then, you know, the return of the Auntie Harris was nice getting him back on the field, saying with Marshawn Lattimore, getting a couple of guys who were banged up back on the field was very nice.
Um, and I got to give a lot of credit, too.
Tackle our tackle, left tackle Patrick Oma May.
Oh, Mom and may.
Well, however you say it, um, making his first career start in the NFL, went out there in place of Toronto.
Armstead, who was a no go for the game, went out there and play very well.
Um, you know, very good.
Especially having to replace a guy like Toronto.
Armstead, who's a Pro Bowler and is a team captain and has been on our team for however many years now.
I think five or 67 some like that.
Um, you did a good job.
Hopefully we get Toronto Armstead back whenever we play the Niners, that's gonna be a big game.
Um, so now the kind of the rest of the season, you know that.
Well, now that we've clinched playoff, we're kind of just kind of trying to get a highest seat of possible.
You know, we're trying to get that first round by most importantly, um, second, most importantly is to get the one seed getting the ones he would be huge.
I don't know if you guys noticed during the, uh does the game last night they showed on the TV that ah sensor like six and one when playing at home in the playoffs under Sean Payton.
But they're like one in six on the road or something like that.
So it's really important that we go after that one seed.
That game against the 40 Niners is going to be huge.
Hopefully they bump it up to prime time so that we can all watch it.
The whole nation can watch.
It could just gonna be one of the best games in the NFL this year, for sure.
Um, but, you know, I did notice that we need a lot of work recovering onside kicks because the Falcons re technically recovered three against us, but what the heck? You know what I'm saying? It's like, Come on now.
There were no onsite earth.
I think one onside kick recovery all season.
And then the Falcons are gonna go on recover two against us, three against us. However many it was.
Keep the game alive as crazy right there.
So we definitely gotta tighten that **** up real quick.
Excuse me, but we gotta tighten that up.
Um, we can't be given up that kind of stuff, man.
That's extra possessions that we need to be running the clock down.
Especially in that situation.
Cam Jordan did his thing.
He bought out, had four sacks.
Congrats to the two rookies who got there first career interceptions last night.
Shy Tuttle, the big defense of tackle got his first career interception look like a swat kind of ended up in his hand a little bit.
Hit Matt Ryan with a nasty stiff arm.
Um and then credit are shot out to C.
Garner Johnson, the rookie ups out of Florida.
He's dropped about seven interceptions this season.
Finally got his 1st 1 Really happy for him.
He almost took it to the House.
Sorry, if my energy seems low, that's really not low.
It's just really late at night in the East Coast.
And I am just, uh, really sick playing a turkey bowl on Thanksgiving morning of Thanksgiving.
And there's like 20 degrees outside.
We won, we won the whole thing, made that money real quick.
But I am paying the price for it today.
Guys is really bad, but I'm still here, grinding out for y'all.
Um, anyways, like Thomas continues to dominate now has the NFL record for most catches three teams 1st 12 games.
He had the record for every other week up until this point.
So another week, another record for Milestone Mike.
That's my new nickname for him, Um, so that's obviously a great thing, you know, he's just he's really living up to all that money we spent on him, and it's really just satisfying as a Saints fan, knowing we have him locked up for a long time.
Um, we also have Cam Jordan for a few more years locked up still.
Um, so right now, it's just like it's really exciting, but also at the same time, it's like I'm sitting here thinking I'm like, how many of these guys are actually gonna be returning to us next year? Like, you gotta figure if we went like, theoretically speaking here we win the Super Bowl this year.
Does Breeze come back this Ted Ginn, come back? Just Theron.
Armstead, come back.
You know, he's been battling injuries as well, Career Lee.
There should be a lot of guys on our team.
We're gonna want to go out on top and who may not think we have another Super Bowl run in.
You know, what I'm saying is like, we gotta like, seriously, like, think about this thing.
There's a lot of guys on our team who were up there in years that could just easily be like, No, I think I'm done playing.
You know, Andrews is definitely one of those options.
Um, and I'm Ted again.
I believe is really one of those options as well.
Um, have you guys noticed that Ted Ginn keeps every single ball after he scores a touchdown because he might just be like trying to keep that last ball.
You know what I'm saying? His last career touchdown ball.
So you never know he's been playing for a very long time.
I give him so much credit.
It's got to be so hard to play in the NFL for as long as he has.
I think he's played for, like, 11 12 13 years, something like that.
Doo's been balling forever, so I can't blame him if he decides he wants to hang him up.
Um, but, you know, it's just like it's nice that we're winning these games, but I got the same time in the back of my head.
I'm like, Man, I'm gonna miss this and a couple of years whenever is gonna be nice to have another receiver like Ted Ginn and a quarterback like Drew Brees, you know? So we just gotta, you know, keep cheering for our team and keep supporting him.
Keep showing them that love instead of Hayden on him, you know, keep showing him that love, but, you know, it's just is really nice.
UH, N F C Division in F C South Champions Thea.
Third season in a row.
Obviously, it's It's really hard to win in the NFL.
It's extremely hard.
It always has been, always will be hard to win in the NFL.
It's hard to have good team and the fact that we've won the NFC South, which at one point a couple years ago was the most competitive division in the NFL, not so much this year or really last year, even.
But, you know, it's known as one of the better divisions in the NFL, and the fact that we're winning it three years in a row kind of shows you the way we kind of built up our team.
You know, we kind of built it really from the ground up.
You know, we were 797979 We were always settling with these mid draft picks, you know, and then finally they started to pay off.
You know, it all kind of started with the Brandin cooks trade a few years back, and I really paid off for us because we got Max Unger.
I believe in that trade, and then we also got the 32nd overall pick.
And that's when we drafted ranch.
No, I was defined, Anthony.
I don't remember, man.
All I know is we started building our team up with the draft, and here we are and we're succeeding at a high level and t I mean, we're still flying under the radar, which should be really scary for every other NFL team does.
Getting all the love and height cause you're gonna let that height go right here.
We're going to keep playing under the radar a little bit.
We don't keep doing our thing.
I here in New Orleans, you know, um, you know, I've been a lifelong fan, and it's just emotional at times to just see how good we are.
And it's crazy, cause, like, I used to this like, think that we would, like, lose every Sunday.
And now I'm out here like, Oh, man, if we lose like, I'm actually gonna be upset, like I used to just cope with losing You know what I'm saying? It's like it's not like that anymore, though tides have turned, we're really taking this league by storm, and it's just really cool.
It's really cool to see and a witness.
But history literally in the making like Mike Thomas is out here doing things wide receivers have never done before.
Like he's out here shattering the record books.
We're out here winning under insane adversity, like how many teams are down like 3456 starters and still go out there and win like every week.
And we were out.
A future Hall of Fame quarterback still found a way to win.
At one point, we were out a Hall of Fame quarterback, a one of the NFL's tough five running backs.
We were without our big, tight and free agent signing and our star like second string receiver for most of the season, like all these guys.
And we still found ways to win Mr Lattimore for a couple of games, you know? And here we are, fighting to reverse.
It just goes to show that kind of like depth that we have on the Saints.
That's why I think we're built different.
You know what I'm saying? Like no team is gonna really be able to mess with us once, especially once the playoffs.
It I don't think really the rest of the season.
To be honest with you, I don't think we lose another game.
And the sweet rest guys or a terrible injury happens.
Not going. Would.
But, um, yeah, I mean, Niners is obviously gonna be a great game.
I can't wait to see that game.
I'm No, I'm gonna freak out, get really frustrated.
But that's all part of it.
Um what else? Yes.
So obviously, I think my players of the game are pretty obvious from last night.
Taysom Hill for the offense and then on the defense side has got to go to Cam Jordan with those four ***.
I'm kind of bouncing all over the place.
I'm sorry, guys.
I'm really, really sick trying to hang in there for you guys.
Um, I don't know.
It's tough, but appreciate the tip of 50 k.
Ball girl. I really do appreciate it.
So saints, you know, first team to clinch the playoffs.
You know, we did it on Thanksgiving, and, you know, yesterday was thanksgiving.
And I just want to tell you guys how thankful I am for you guys, like, for real, Like you guys means so much to me.

All I'm saying is saints on top, baby.
Um, yeah, it's crazy.
First team and first team to clinch playoff.
So we're not even number one in the power rings.
A key putting like the sea ox ahead of us that he put it like we beat the Seahawks already.
So move on, buddy.
Keep putting the Niners ahead of us.
They only have one loss, so I mean, I guess you can throw them up there.
They keep on the Packers ahead of us, too.
But if we play that packers, I think we'll kill him.
Um, I don't know.
We still keep We're still slept on.
I don't get how you can win games with all your backups against, like, good tears and still get slept on like that.
I don't get it doesn't make any sense to me.
I really don't get it.
All I know is It's gonna be great at the end of the season when we're holding up that Lombardi Trophy and everyone's like What the heck? No way NFL was wrong again on who they thought were gonna win the Super Bowl.
