NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - In this edition of FFF we’re talking Saints possibly in the QB derby, Champions League soccer is down to a final four, and breaking down Easter brunch at Commander’s.

FOOTBALL

The Saints own the 16th and 19th overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Black and Gold could use an offensive lineman and a wide receiver.

They could also cut bait on Jameis Winston after one year. So, a quarterback could be a possibility with one of the first-round picks.

NFL reporter Jordan Schultz tweeted the Saints could package those two picks in an attempt to move up in the draft to grab either former Liberty Flames quarterback Malik Willis or Kenny Pickett of the Pittsburgh Panthers.

I just don’t see it. Two picks would fill way more needs for the Black and Gold. Willis and Pickett aren’t transcendent QB’s.

Now, if they drop to 16 or 19, sure go for it. But, get that lineman or receiver also.

FÚTBOL

The Champions League final four is set: Manchester City vs. Real Madrid, and Liverpool vs Villareal.

Real Madrid played a riveting duel with Chelsea just to get here. Beating the London squad, 5-4, in a home-and-home match.

So who’s the favorite? Well I’m going with an all English Premier League final, City-Liverpool.

I think Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool take the crown. The final is in May, can’t wait!

FOOD

One of the best days for brunch in New Orleans is Easter Sunday. One of the hottest spots to go for brunch on Easter, Commander’s Palace.

But getting a reservation at Commander’s on this particular day, well, it’s not easy. It’s actually nearly impossible unless you’re a regular.

Commander’s calls their regulars in January to get their head counts for the big day. Rarely do people say “no thanks, not this year.”

Now if you’re a party of two, you got a slim chance to get brunch at Commander’s via a reservation. Party of four nearly impossible, six, no chance.

This is also the case for Mother’s Day.

Commander’s is a fantastic spot for brunch, but just set your sights on some other days for a reservation.
