believe it or not, there have been some changes to fisherman's wharf and i'm not talking about the applebees. if you have a street that's been one direction for decades and then you flip the script, it becomes a breathing ground for people behaving badly. now they're new to jefferson street, but it's been around for years. apparently they are confusing.
what's also confusing? this thing. to me it's a red arrow and it means no turn on red, like this sign only it's electric. if you operate an armored truck, that red arrow appears to be a suggestion. and the same for this oakland taxicab. wait a minute. an oakland taxicab in san francisco? followed quickly by a yellow taxicab. this could be the next new duck hunt. oh, i'm sorry. a duck pond means there are so many violators the cops could just sit here and issue tickets. but it's not just drivers. this is a petty cab running a red light. last time i checked, there's no exemption for them. i can hear the nasty-grams just pouring in. but why not? after all, all the other stoplights and stop signs and some text while riding. >> if you come to fisherman's wharf, don't get caught
behaving badly. >> even the port of san francisco workers aren't exempt from behaving badly. picking up trash requires them to park opposite of the traffic. oh, and the dedicated transit lanes are not for hop on, hop off buss. one could say these are terries, but after watching most of the tourists were more well behaved than the locals, at least today. go figure. did you know they're giving away free gpss here? yep, just break the glass. the public is finally getting a look at a baby baboon. you can see it hanging on to mom's belly there. the female only three weeks old. now that the baby is accustomed to her surroundings, the public will be able to get a look on a daily basis. coming up in sports, we
the 49ers want to sail toward the play off, they better win on sunday. not one of those if they lose, the season's over. but nonetheless, that good feeling they've had for the majority of this season after a rough one in two starts could go away. davis says he feels fine, might be in there. kapernick looks to bounce back, but the saints are good. and drew brees, the offense rolling it up. they're 5-0 at home this season. because of the home field advantage, they're a 3-point favorite. >> the saints are an
outstanding football team. they really have things working well offensively, machine-like, very hot, and playing extremely well. >> it's a loud place to play. they're a great team, they're playing well. we have to be ready for that. >> to help us look ahead to the game on sunday, the king of new orleans sports. doug won the edward r. merle award. >> king of new orleans sports, that's comical. that's funny. >> whoever we got was going to be the king, so don't let it go to your head. thanks for joining us tonight. let's look ahead here and talk about drew brees. how would you compare what he's doing this year with the other great seasons he's had? >> this is still in the middle. we're 9 games in. this would be three great seasons in his career. 2009 was the unbelievable run to the super bowl.
then 2011, which may have been better. and that's when they lost in san francisco in the play offs. many people believed, including me, that 2011 team was just as good if not better than the 2009 super bowl year. this year he has been spectacular autobahn. four touchdowns, no interceptions this sunday night against dallas. he wasn't even the guy we were talking about after the game. >> is it all him, or did last year tell the story of how valuable shawn peyton is to brees and the team? >> you're exactly on point. drew brees said this year there have been times when he goes to peyton with a play and a time out and peyton has the same play. they think a lot a like. they work together. shawn peyton does an amazing job of in-game adjustments. in all honesty, much of drew brees' issues, i believe this
to be true, last year was not having shawn peyton, not having the back up, and trying to do too much. you saw this in the game against san francisco last year when brees threw two terrible interceptions and the saints lost. if you look at the last two years, the saints have matched up worse against san francisco than maybe any team in the nfl. san francisco did a great job against the saints in the divisional play off game two years ago. and then the game in san francisco last year was terrific. this one is huge for the saints in terms of figuring out if they're for real. >> my god, he is the king of new orleans. what did he say? anybody remember of that? no. he was full of information. >> isn't that what you wanted? >> i wanted good information, but i also want you guys to enjoy it. >> well, we did.
especially your questions. >> no, no, no. i could be a real bad guy and say what's the one thing he said that you remember? >> how about the drew brees pass problems. >> good news for the raiders here. it looks like pryor will be back on the field sunday when the raiders play houston. now he returned to practice today and again, the alternative is a rookie backup so right now pryor says his knee which affected his play against the new york giants isn't too bad. we'll wait and see. baseball awards announced today. detroit tigers say hello to miguel cabrera. took the tigers to the american
