Strief: Saints WR Thomas would be justified in holding out
04/22/2019 5:36pm

Matthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports Strief: Saints WR Thomas would be justified in holding out April 22, 2019 Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowAs Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas enters 2019, hes staring down the final year of a rookie contract that he has vastly outplayed after putting up production previously unseen in the first three years of any NFL players career. No NFL player in history has caught more balls in their first three seasons than Thomas.Now the question becomes: Will Thomas report Tuesday for the Saints voluntary offseason training program or sit out in the hopes of jumpstarting negotiations on a new contractMonday afternoon on WWL Radios Sports Talk, the voice of the Saints Zach Strief said Thomas would be justified in staying home.Mike has nothing left to prove, Strief said. Theres nothing Mike can do in the next year to make himself more valuable. Hes wildly underpaid. If Mike decides hes not going to go to those workouts, first of all, he can do that if he just signed a five-year, $100 million contract. Because like you said, these are voluntary workouts.Strief went on to say that Thomas has to do what he believes is best for him.I think its important to Mike to be there, Strief said. But I also think that if Mike was getting advice that this was the right thing to do, that youre never gonna get this done without not showing up. I would fully support Mike in doing that. I think its fully understandable.Strief said that while NFL owners and front offices claim to frown on the practice of holding out, it is difficult to argue against its effectiveness.I think you can look at the history of the NFL, Strief said. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. The guys that hold out and do those things, most of the time those are the guys that get paid early.However, Strief cautioned that while the strategy may work elsewhere, paying players before the end of their current deals is generally not how the Saints do businesss.I think it all starts at the top, Strief said. Drew Brees has played out contracts. Its really hard when youre on that roster underneath, and the Saints are saying, We didnt even pay him early.You can hear more of Striefs thoughts on a potential Michael Thomas holdout by clicking the podcast link.

Loomis covered a wide range of topics regarding the Black and Gold.Loomis said, as far as the Saints 2019 schedule is concerned, he felt it is relatively favorable.I kinda like the schedule, Loomis said. Ill be honest with you. Our opponents are pre-determined. Its just a matter of when we play them. Weve got our bye right in the middle of the season. I like that. Those first four weeks are tough opponents, but were going to have to play them anyway over the course of the year.We have five national games, Loomis continued. Four primetimes. Three of those are at home. I like that, too. So I think we like our schedule.Loomis said he believes the Saints roster after its additions in free agency has allowed the team to once again utilize a best player available strategy in the upcoming draft.We have a list of items we want to get accomplished in the offseason. I think for the most part we did that, Loomis said.Loomis addressed one issue that has plagued the Saints for the last half-decade: Theyve lost their season opener five years in a row.Were always focused on starting fast, Loomis said. Weve had teams that have played some good games against us more than anything. Weve got a home game against a really tough opponent on Monday Night Football. Weve had success in those primetime games. Hopefully well have success this year.The Saints arent scheduled to have a draft selection until the 30th pick of the second round 62 overall. Well have full wall-to-wall coverage of the entire NFL Draft though on WWL beginning Thursday night.functiond, s, id var js, fjs d.getElementsByTagNames0 if d.getElementByIdid return js d.createElements id js.src // fjs.parentNode.insertBeforejs, fjsdocument, script, facebook-jssdk Categories: Saints Tags: Saints Mickey Loomis NFL Draft NFL Comments

Strief bullish on Black and Gold’s 2019 outlook

If you ask Saints Radio Network play-by-play announcer Zach Strief, it will be a very good season indeed.Listen, I think the Saints are the most talented team in football this year, Strief said. So I have a hard time not saying I think theyre gonna have the best record. I dont see somebody that has a roster as developed and complete as the Saints. I think they had minimal holes going into the offseason, and I think they did a very good job of filling them.Speaking on WWL Radios Sports Talk on Thursday, Strief didnt beat around the bush when it came to his prediction for the season.I went 13-3, Strief said of his prognostication. I really think you could very easily see this team come out of the gate and win three of four to open up. Id be surprised if they werent. I dont think they going 0 for 2 on that road trip One of those teams is gonna lose to the Saints. And you come out of that, youve got Tampa, Jacksonville, Chicago, Arizona those are all very winnable games for the Saints.You get a bye week then four divisional opponents. Yes, its hard playing divisional teams, but our record against those teams is pretty darn good. I could see the Saints going 6-2, 7-1 in that stretch, and being right there on pace at the end of the year to win 12 or 13 games.You can hear more of Striefs analysis by clicking the podcast link.

Saints OT Armstead weighs in on the 2019 schedule
04/18/2019 5:40pm

Chuck Cook - USA TODAY Sports Saints OT Armstead weighs in on the 2019 schedule April 18, 2019 Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowWhen asked which opposing defensive line sticks out the most when looking at the 2019 Saints schedule, Saints offensive tackle Terron Armstead was diplomatic.All of them, Armstead said, Its gonna be a challenge. But its gonna be exciting for sure. Great offense, great defense returning to start this season. Especially opening up with Houston, we know what their D-line can do and how theyve been a force around the NFL for a while now. We take pride up front of being a unit to protect and make running lanes. So thatll be a great way to start the season.Armstead, who appeared on WWL Radios Sports Talk Thursday afternoon with Zach Strief and Kristian Garic, also refused to take the bait when asked about the game looming large in the schedules opening quarter, the game sure to get the blood boiling in the Who Dat Nation Week 2 at the Los Angeles Rams.Man, we gonna take this thing one week at a time, Armstead responded.But there does seem to be one team that got Armsteads normally even-keel blood pumping a little faster. Last season, the Saints saw their 10-game winning streak snapped in a chippy affair in Dallas, a game that Armstead was forced to miss due to injury, and a game where the Saints normally-potent offense underperformed.For me personally, Armstead said, any time that the year before I had a game or a few plays that I felt someone got the best of me, Im always looking forward to either the next play or the next season when we play them again. I kind of lock in and hone in on those guys and try to not have a repeat performance. I like to make those my best games of the year if possible. Dallas would be one of those. I didnt play in that game unfortunately, but just didnt like the way that they came, side-talking and all of that. Extremely talented team, extremely talented D-line, but we dont back down from anybody. Thatll be another fun, challenging game, but well be up for it.You can hear the full interview with Armstead, including his thoughts on the development of defensive end Marcus Davenport, by clicking the podcast link.
