METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - In this edition of FFF we put our focus on possible breakout rookie wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith, a European soccer team that has the Saints fans in mind, and a visit to a legendary St. Bernard eatery.

FOOTBALL

It's only a few days into Saints camp, but it appears the offense could posses a gamebreaker at the receiver spot. Third-round pick Tre'Quan Smith has hauled in some eye-popping catches the last few days in camp.

Saturday, he beat NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore with a fantastic grab. Smith also burned fellow rookie Natrell Jamerson on a deep ball.

Cameron Meredith is entrenched at the third spot in the receiving group right now. With Drew Brees already getting comfortable with the Central Florida product, a possible move up the depth chart could be in Smith's future.

FÚTBOL

Saints fans, I understand it's football season, and that's all that matters right now. But, European soccer is also revving up in August.

If you don't have a team just yet, check out Paris-St. Germain's new uniforms.

That's right, Black and Gold. Would look pretty sharp on Sunday's in the Dome. It's even got a fleur-de-lis on the back neck.

FOOD

I'm always on the lookout for a new restaurant in NOLA, but I also don't forget the originals in the area.

I know it might come as a total shock, but up until a few weeks ago, I never ventured down to Da' Parish to eat at Rocky and Carlo's.

As you can tell by this post, I hit the epicenter of Chalmette food pretty hard. I thought the prices were reasonable, and the atmosphere is cool and laid-back.

If you haven't been, I would suggest going. It's an experience that should be tried at least once.
