New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (10) scores on a 62-yard pass from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9), making Brees the NFL all-time passing yards leader during the first half Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

The Saints are rolling.

And so is the podcast.

Kevin Washington is on vacation this week, so I'm joined by Ian Howard, and we hit a ton of topics, including:

-- The defense’s improved play

 -- Why were the Saints more vertical vs Washington?

 -- How concerned should we be with Alvin Kamara’s knee?

 -- Is Ted Ginn Jr. getting his job back from Tre'Quan Smith?

-- How many yards does Drew Brees need to finish his career with to protect the record?

 -- What does Brees need to do to win the MVP this season?
