Everything New Orleans Saints for Armchair Media. The Perfect Blend of Saints Sincerity & Stupidity.
This week Kevin plays the role of himself and Dave Cariello. He and Ralph discuss the Saints 2012 schedule and how Tom Benson has completely rebuilt his reputation following Katrina. They also come up with the greatest idea for the interim Saints coaches post game press conference in the history of ever. Kevin also thinks Ralph's idea of signing Braylon Edwards is awful and the news that the Saints and Drew Brees have closed the gap in negotiations has Kevin feeling really good for the season.
Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops bye to discuss all the scenarios where the calendar turns to July, Drew Brees isn't signed, and we all look for tall bridges to leap off of. He also says compares a former Saints GM to midget porn! Plus the boys try to figure out if Grandmaster Wang is right about the local media (especially the Times Picayune) doing a crappy job covering the bounty scandal and the rest of the Saints off season from hell. Oh and they give a quick shout out to the Hornets for winning the lottery and on Andrew's twitter war with Sean Pamphilon.
Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation fills in for our fearless leader Dave and discusses if he thinks Drew Brees will indeed sign a contract by Monday. Kevin Held wonders if the linebackers might be the strength of the 2012 Saints defense. This episode goes off the rails when after recapping his twitter war with Sean Pamphilon Andrew mentions Pamphilon tweeted his phone number and maybe the guys should call him DURING THE PODCAST. You'll have to listen to see if mayhem follows. The boys also discuss what Saints player could be the best twitter follow, why getting old sucks, and will Saints fans want to choke the national media to death during the 2012 season because they are so trolltastic? .
This week, Joe Vitt goes on the 'Maury Povich Show' for a lie detector test, Dave Cariello tries to figure out if Anthony Hargrove making a stink will ultimately matter. The guys aren't sure if the Saints are guilty of intent to injure, but they are 100% certain children are better at Photoshop and PowerPoint than Gregg Williams. Kevin also wonders how anyone could read a Drew Brees tweet and think he isn't pro military (or do people forget Drew went to Guantanamo Bay, and it wasn't for vacation). Dave ties a ribbon round the old oak tree. Ralph was really disappointed when Twitter broke Thursday and it wasn't because Brees had signed. Kevin and Ralph also wonder if the stupidity of some people on Twitter towards athletes might eventually go from stupid tweets to terrible action.
Dave explains how the disappearing Drew Brees on the Chronic might be down to a birth mark in about 10 days. Kevin wonders if the NFL's Bounty Case can get any messier (Yes. Yes it can.) Dave wonders what the hell is holding up the deal and the guys give you signs to look for that a deal will not get done and how to prepare accordingly. (Drink heavily.) The boys also guess if Drew Brees will break his own signing on Twitter or will an actual media member break the news? Will 2012 be the worst year of Sean Payton's life? Since Brees, Jimmy Graham, and Darren Sproles all had historic seasons last year who is most likely to regress in 2012? Plus, Dave gets called away for emergency daddy duty.
The Fearless leader Dave called for an emergency late night podcast after Drew Brees signed. The boys discuss if Brees or the Saints won the contract negotiation. Could Drew run for President? How many Jimmy John sandwiches does 40 million buy? What horrible joke did Ralph play on his Mom? Ralph asks God to please have the Falcons talk Bounty trash the week of the Saints game. Kevin tries to figure out if winning a Super Bowl without Sean Payton is a huge motivator for Brees. Dave explains why Brees' agent not wanting to work on Saturday probably got the deal done. And Kevin guesses how many times Al Michaels will say the word bounty during the Hall of Fame Game. Is 6000 million billion a real number?
The Boss Man Dave Cariello stops by while Kevin Held skipped out because of breaking news in St. Louis. Ralph blames Twitter for giving him a heart attack over the Jimmy Graham injury scare. Dave wonders if the injuries in the secondary could lead to a repeat of the 2007-2008 seasons. Ralph thinks Steve Spagnuolo might have brought some sort of black plague for cornerbacks with him from St. Louis. Dave gives his thoughts on Jonathan Vilma but with a lot less cursing than Andrew Juge.
Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by to discuss why God hates the Saints having competent linebackers. Ralph explains why he felt really bad for Andy Tanner. Andrew tries to figure out why ESPN keeps poking the Saints in the ribs. They also discuss if in game adjustments will be as good without Sean Payton. And Andrew explains the only thing that matters Saturday against the Texans. And Ralph gives a super fantasy sleeper QB pick.
Dave and Kevin tie a bow on John Barr's ESPN piece. Ralph gets off topic and asks why hasn't Jim Haslett gotten another head coaching job. Kevin explains why he'll be sad when the Saints pick a kicker. Dave is amazed by Marques Colston's magic healing powers and wonders if Scott Shanle will play FOREVER. Kevin analyzes the Saints biggest problem of the preseason even though he can't watch the actual games and then ends the podcast with a delightful retelling of the tale of the Saints being crazy paranoid about injuries.
Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation breaks down Saints-Texans and sees good signs for the defense. He and Ralph explain why the Saints might have had a way better 2012 Draft than anyone originally thought. Is Cameron Jordan about to make the leap to being a complete defensive end? Who will be the worst team in the NFC? And Fantasy Football Draft tips! It's officially football season. Oh and Isaac can suck it.
