SHARIEF: HEY EVERYBODY, SHARIEF ISHAQ IN WEST VIRGINIA. AND IF YOU’RE WONDERING WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE WE? WELL, INSIDE THE LOST WORLD CAVERNS JUST OUTSIDE LEWISBERG, IT’S AN UNDERGROUND SERIES OF CAVERNS THAT WERE DISCOVERED IN 1942. HERES A LITTLE LESSON ABOUT ROCKS. STALACTITE GROW FROM THE CEILING TO THE FLOOR SO KIND OF TOP TO BOTTOM KINDA LIKE HOW THE SAINTS WENT FROM 2013 TO 2014. BUT THIS SEASON DREW BREES AND COMPANY ARE TRYING TO PLAY THE ROLL OF A STALAGMITE — GROW FROM THE BOTTOM UP.>>THE SEASON IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. NOT GOING TO GIVE OURSELVES EXCUSES AND HOW TO IS THE TIME TO WORK AND COME PEE AND NOW IS THE TIME TO — COMPETE AND GET BETTER AND PUSH ONE ANOTHER TO BE THE BEST WE CAN BE. I THINK WE CAN BE GOOD BUT A LONG WAY TO GO. SHARIEF: BREES HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN A LOT OF GOOD THIS CAMP. HOW ABOUT THE TOP SIX PLAYS FROM TRAINING CAMP. NUMBER SIX. DREW BREES GOING DEEP DOWN THE FIELD TO NICK TOOM AND TOON BEATS WEST BANK KEENAN LEWIS DOWN THE SIDELINE. NUMBER FIVE. WE GO TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BALL. FORMER TULANE QB RYAN GRIFFIN LOOKING FOR BEN WATSON BUT RAFAEL BUSH DIVES AND KNOCKS IT AWAY AT THE LAST SECOND. NUMBER FOUR. BACK TO OFFENSE WE GO. LUKE MCCOWN WITH A DART OVER THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD AND BRANDON COLEMAN COMES UP WITH THE DIVING CATCH OVER ROOKIE LINEBACKER STEPHONE ANTHONY. NUMBER THREE. IT’S ANOTHER LONG BALL ON OFFENSE. RYAN GRIFFIN LAUNCHES ONE DEEP TO LANCE LEWIS AND HE MAKES THE SNAG WITH HIS FINGERTIPS BEATING TERRENCE FREDRICK. NUMBER TWO. WE STAY WITH THE THEME OF GOING DEEP. THE ROOKIE GARRETT GRAYSON HE PUTS ONE UP AND WILLIE SNEAD WHO’S HAVING AN AMAZING CAMP WITH THE NICE CONCENTRATION TO MAKE THE CATCH OVER PJ WILLIAMS. OUR NUMBER ONE PLAY OF CAMP UP TO THIS POINT BELONGS TO BREES AND JOE MORGAN. BREES WITH THE PERFECT THROW JUST OVER THE 6-4 BRANDON BROWNER TO MORGAN WHO KEEPS BOTH FEET IN FOR THE CATCH. SO MUCH GOOD BUT THE SAINTS HAVE HAD THEIR FAIR SHARE OF BAD AND SAW SOME OF IT REAR ITS UGLY HEAD DURING THE SCRIMMAGE, SUBSTITUTIONS, AND PRESNAP PENALTIES-THINGS ZACH STRIEF FEELS THEY WILL FIX.>>WE HAVE TIME FORTUNATELY. NOW THE TIME WILL RUN OUT QUICKLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE SCHEDULE. ONCE WE GET ROLL IT WILL COME QUICK. I THINK GUYS ARE WORKING HARD AND DOING WHAT WHEN WE NEED TO DO TO GET BETTER WHEN THE TIME COMES. SHARIEF: ONE GUY WHO’S COVERED THE SAINTS SINCE 2006 IS CST SAINTS REPORTER MIKE NABORS WHO’S SEEN A LOT OF GOOD AND BAD AT CAMP–BUT ONE OF HIS BIGGER HEAD SCRATCHERS IS JAIRUS BYRD>>THAT HAS BEEN THE WEIRD STORY IN THE CAMP. YOU DON’T WANT TO SAY THAT T. IS A CHAMP BAILEY STORY FROM A YEAR AGO BECAUSE WE HEARD WE WILL RETURN AND HE DIDN’T. THINK THIS IS DIFFERENT. WE HAVE SEEN HIM RUNNING A LITTLE BIT. TALKING TO SEAN PAYTON HE SEEMS OPTIMIST TICK. YOU DON’T SEE HIM AT PRACTICE RUNNING OR ON THE BIKE.>>THE SECONDARY LOOKS GOOD BACK THERE. YOUR THOUGHTS THROUGH THE FIRST WEEK OF CAMP?>>I THINK THE SAINTS’ SECONDARY IS A BIG POSITIVE FOR THE FOOTBALL TEAM. KEENAN LEWIS NEEDS SOMEBODY AND BROWNER IS THE VETERAN. YOU HAVE BUSH, STILL WAITING BIRD. MOST OF THE GUYS ARE HEALTHY AND THEY LOOKED GOOD OUT THERE. SHARIEF: WHAT ELSE IS GOOD ARE SOME OF THE FUNNY MOMENTS THE COACHING STAFF AND PLAYERS GAVE US AT THE PODIUM>>THIS IS A BUSINESS. WHEN THEY ASKED ME TO TAKE A PAY CUT IT WAS TIME TO GET OUT OF THERE.>>YOU PORTRAYED ME AS STICK IN THE MUD. I LIKE TO HAVE FUN, TOO.>>HOW MUCH YOU TALKED AND SIMILAR PERSONALITY. KIND OF A A QUIET GUY AND DOESN’T SAY UP.>>I THOUGHT I IS A QUIET GUY UNTIL I MET HIM. [LAUGHTER]>>I GOT A LONG WAY TO GO.>>WHAT DID YOU THINK?>>IGNITION REMIX BY R. KELLY.>>I NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE.>>YEAH, YEAH. I’M RETIRED.>>ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, JUST RAISE YOUR HAND. [LAUGHTER]>>THE IS THIS THE FIRST WOREOUT IN THE LAST TWO YEARS.>>THE THE FIRST WORKOUT AND ONLY WOREOUT AND IT WORED OUT. [LAUGHTER]>>WHO WAS HERE BEFORE THIS? I KNOW STRIEF WASN’T TALKING DOWN ON THIS. WAS HE LIKE THIS THE WHOLE TIME? [LAUGHTER]>>I GUESS WHEN YOU ARE 57:00 LIKE ME PEOPLE MAKE FUN OF — 5’7″ LIKE ME PEOPLE MAKE FUN OF YOUR HIGH. THEY GET BACK TO PRACTICE AND GET READY FOR THE FIRST
