Now about yeah ever have a situation your -- that really painful and unresolved. And it drags on and non. And you know the inevitable eventually got to come but it does it quite get there and then finally. After months and months of difficulty. And confusion and pain. It gets resolved yeah. It it takes care -- -- -- off your back and finally can move on whether it resolves itself well or not so well. But at least you have the relief just knowing you get past it. I don't have to worry about that anymore. That's how -- -- today and that's how I felt by about half time yes yes I know the failing finally I know I don't have. Have to worry about if the saints will or will not make the playoffs. Fine I don't have to hold my breath every Sunday hoping just hoping that they finally get things back on track. Finally. It's resolved and I know the saints will not be going to the saints will not be playing in the Super Bowl and I don't. Afterward about it anymore we can just relax and still gonna watch the games and lessen -- absolutely gonna miss and he any of the -- saints action. Now but or inaction whatever but I don't go into with things -- going -- the don't go into it with. In the chance grinding -- -- -- this anxiety. You know it wasn't the way I had hoped it would -- it did and the way I won it. Especially act -- him. Well while that was horribly ugly with the offense they could do any thing the special teams that was in app and ridiculously. Unable to perform like that defense that was put. In bad situation after bad situation because all the office to do with turn it over all the special teams to do was give them out its shortest field in all the years you watch the settings and I know it's been a -- dislike me I had never. Seen anything like that with a return game. Over and over I just piracy and it what was that the out as the first of all -- that you always exit through at least into the net and puts them out lessons -- for starters was taken its short. And the coverage team literally could not stop anybody in mores that either had to try to make a tackle on fail or make the tackle and time again. Both on kick off on it is I'm not gonna I don't wanna do see that he got -- our topic. -- -- it could do without the latter this thing -- relax and that means it's over you know you know mom whether it was you know. And maybe this is in the great analogy but you know it's a stick pat it was a lot of pain. And finally -- was able to and grace literally in the pain is over whether it was. You know jobs that you just so one happy new jobs in which it had to go every day because yes and it paid the bills. Whatever that bad situation in your life was that finally came to our resolution and it's got this is it. The saints season has been painful from the get go. Difficult since the pre season.

Mission accomplished stance is definitely kept the saints from playing in the super ball in the hometown. For the first time in the history of the NFL do you believe that's what he wanted to do then. Well you agree with this text that says his mission has been accomplished at it find it interesting that he was -- game but I guess he kind of lives in new York and that's for the NFL's headquartered. Some say though he was there to watch the demise of the saints and see that his whole. Bounty gate fiasco finally came through and he did keep the saints from any shot. And the Super Bowl in the super ego -- Are your thoughts coming up detected -- mandate 7870 there right now what you hear from Steve -- -- it was morning sports on. Mourning after. It all came to a final resolution that is. Is -- the morning if you get a New York Giants kept their one game lead in the NFC east over Washington and Dallas by routing the saints' fifteen to 27 this. Another fairly short with Wilson and we'll Whitfield at the team back to the twenties at that point but it got a wireless speeds right past Boston at me because. The 30451850. Five and a touchdown -- David Wilson. Rookie David Wilson accounted for three touchdowns with 227. Return yards and 100 yards rushing from scrimmage. -- sport puts the saints now at five and eight on the year in -- Jovi was not happy with the team's performance but took full responsibility. That was an embarrassment today which took place in the football field it starts with me. That's where the blame should go green days of victory away from the TV NFC north after beating alliance 27 to twenty on Sunday Night Football. -- incidents that there won't care who it was right takes -- snap while -- -- trouble. Let's out of it Kevin that was right that 3045. Five people couldn't text. The Packers have won 22 straight at home against the line which is the longest streak in the NFL next up for them are the bears in Chicago.

Today at four RW WL it's the second -- show from the silver slipper casino the followed by the saints coaches show. -- early morning look at sports I'm Steve Geller. Five point 3 on your Monday morning -- Allen Steve -- hang out in your radio on Steve -- really saw yesterday as being a great relief the great burden pulled off of me I don't have to watch the wild card race -- -- to keep track of which teams have to win lose for the -- have a chance I don't have to watch the saints with the same kind of well nervousness in. Anticipation. -- in and all that anymore. It's like a weight has been lifted and I know it's disappointing and -- it's sad it's that the outcome that anybody wanted but the way I see it is. Finally that's over we can worry about next season. -- -- I used to say. A 136. Days of the NFL draft. It's it's like we've been delaying the inevitable all season I mean I think the writing was on the wall we all thought that maybe they can rally around all the adversity. Rally around the bounty gate suspension of the coaches and GM in the players and fighting through this whole appeals process we kept. Clinging -- hope that there would be better things to come. But it ultimately I think everyone knew deep down somewhere that. Without Sean Payton with Drew Brees hold out all of that during the offseason with all of the adversity this beat teams -- they had a huge mountain to climb. If they were going to be able to accomplish when -- went hoped which was you know the first team to ever play in the super ball on the content right. And they've dug themselves an early hole and I'll I'll hole in 04. But managed to Wear it where everyone got back on the wagon was they got back to 55. And I was like you know what to start -- look like the saints were used to seeing it was a reset creative. It and it just seemed as if they were gonna carry that over but it just didn't come together lost three straight now five and eight. While not mathematically. And -- they would be. Like basically every team in the NFC to continue. They just dropped games and everybody one in the NFC Latin this past week except for. You know ought to have a bet that it was only team that -- the other sense. If not eliminated there I had their eyes got even slimmer with everybody you. We wanted to lose winning anyway yeah -- I gotta check it out this morning but they've they were going into this past week 2.5. Percent chance of making the playoffs. Ordinarily would have to zero now about zero this plan that will that not mathematically done yet that's what we -- keep -- coming up. Tell me data that I could not do it there is still so long. I don't -- now thanks Steve. Acted appointment to more sports here on WWL stable give us all the details of. He is ridiculously slim playoff chances still remain.

And while it's the Monday after that it is after the -- season all -- by a tiny little threat habits and learn it comes to a complete than that. I have been told now that there's the mathematical possibilities. Bill that essentially every other team in the as head of the saints in the -- not loses in the saints went out and go alienate there's still mathematical. It will slim chance. I'll boy -- make the policy talk about -- under with the round yeah I'm I'm I'm -- Yeah you guys are note Jermaine I'm just trivia but that was fun. Challenge it was difficult it was. It was a battle but it's time it's okay this is a battle that we cannot win and let's just -- regrouping and looking ahead and did an army coach back. Gas several text messages and 87871. That I can't wait to see Sean Payton. When he gets back. This squad come next year's NFL is going to hit. -- going to be. We're gonna hit them hard. Now is about it but he he basically says -- below point to prove when he comes back yes well he's going to essentially. Next season will be much better than this season was way and the saints as the -- It's non patent back now we'll find out this week and it's suspensions that. Will Smith and Jonathan Vilma and having to serve and is Jonathan Vilma is could linger into next season yeah. Other than that. This season should do we should've Lebow at all -- gate fiasco of this season and be rated start ration -- with the NFL draft -- employees and and hopefully greater things will comment now what I'm hoping for. Since -- essentially given up on the chances of the saints playing in the blowing your new world I'd like in all Manning's. Yes that is home to I was through -- you know -- -- -- Peyton and Eli. Facing off. For the crown. Here in the superdome and the chances of that I think are pretty darn good well the way it is giants were playing against the saints last night. Look they would darn -- -- is that what now and then yeah he's he's been on fire they've just been peel off win after win after win in Denver. So I yank it absolutely happened and I think that it's been eight in to have the hometown boys at home the great story -- and in other -- and it's in the medal and now. Not the last you know possibly rivalries -- sponsor we have a lot of fond of that and in the meantime yeah just make sure the falcons aren't anywhere out near town actually back and it happened rockets cannot -- -- news. So -- ego others that to you predicted -- saints win yesterday you're. Very wrong very wrong on the -- at four point win and be forty point loss that he has that hey they were only behind by eight points for. A little couple minutes -- moment. And there polygamist seven while and it was -- The the that the but it that in a minute. -- Iran about that I'll -- you admitted. An adult -- on Solomon the movie was predicted tops number one the box that is very very difficult to do it that week new films opening in.

Are demanding. He -- meteorologist Laura about. Aren't well ballot on long ride and it is Monday yeah I've given up now I've finally accepted the inevitable the saints visited -- are. And I can get that. Pressure on the guy I athletic. But the floors of the holidays in next season -- and just enjoy things -- now we've played hot hot hot out to open of course it is -- theme -- -- -- -- it's kind of odd how that morning when they're gonna change today. Gas added we've got cold front all the -- to those of you that they've been going where is the December weather well it will be here but later this evening and into tonight. Yeah I mean right now we're in the seventies. And at this time tomorrow will be in the. Looks like this time tomorrow and the -- Mid forties on the -- short and then the upper thirties north of LA. Advocates like at 35 degree temperature dropped on average across the region between now in this time tomorrow exactly it's it's it's pretty strong cold front on for a -- where is it and where it went physical and what does it do to. We'll cold front is west of us this morning the heaviest storms are stretching -- about Lake Charles to Jackson Mississippi's economy moving through central Louisiana right now just the west of baton reached. And those storms can continue across the area during the late morning to early afternoons I think our best rain chance will probably be between about 10 AM and news. Here in this city. So we're in late morning to around lunch time -- both get through the commute and I do you think you're gonna be okay with the morning commute in lesser traveling west you know around Baton Rouge or west of that. But if if you're gonna stay in the southeastern Louisiana area I think you make it to work just fine but shortly thereafter. The rain and storms will endorse or a little earlier maybe 9 AME tonight hand in -- sort -- mean. Storms cleared the area about 2 o'clock. And so byte at an afternoon that it works are teetering come to an end but it's going to turn cooler by 5 PM. Temps are already about sixty degree drop ten degrees. By about 5 o'clock the. All right so essentially for most people the reds gonna come while their network yeah if they don't in the -- they work outside right he what man.

They do Wenzel pick up and a -- -- tonight and even tomorrow at heights tomorrow or Canadian and mid fifties. It's actually gonna feel more like the forties once you factor in the fact that it.

Victor Cruz had a 121 yards receiving and that touchdown while rookie David Wilson amassed 327. All purpose yards and three scores. The saints the five and eight on the year. After the game interim coach -- -- fell on the -- taking full responsibility for dropping their third straight game I do good job of getting this football team prepared I think. -- -- -- job of getting the major critical -- support to -- course for football team in the world is gonna take to win this before being. In the Sunday night game at snowy Lambeau Field the base -- Detroit in early fourteen nothing lead and then roared back to beat the lines 271.

Later today on Monday Night Football that Texans are New England to battle the patriots both teams come into this contest riding a six game winning streaks. Let's kick off a 1053 FM at 730. And Notre Dame linebacker man tiger tale has won the Lott impact trophy at the collegiate defensive player having the biggest impact on his team. Detail what the runner up to Johnny man's cell of Texas -- after the Heisman Trophy. Today of four on sports talk it's the second guess show live from the silver slipper followed by the saints coaches show. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning to sports. Text message Stephen 8787 he says yes the saints had a bad season we will come back stronger next season Sean Payton to do your job and people aren't still fix it got to believe and have faith if not. Then get off the Super Bowl ban -- another says. On the other -- them now the question as. We'll -- even PR -- the. -- I tell us handle this one thing at a time. If mathematically it's really not completely over the saints they theoretically could still make the playoffs -- looking things over and while we're gonna need a lot of the NFC teams that are still in the -- to lose the problem is a lot of them play each other. And the saints need ties. And those games that -- literally -- eyes right though because one team winning would not help so we need to teams that tie out yet so it. So -- the medical possibilities are. Decimal points of percentages -- exactly writes I can officially give up. Now we can't get our our attribute a group that -- -- now that you are I don't think. -- -- -- usually in -- -- in one this season Bryant. Now chances in Beatles will not and the season thanks to god but a fork in them but the question is -- that this tax questions. Now the question is will Peyton be our coach next you're currently on pain is not under contract with the -- -- thing. Currently Sean -- because that. NFL did not approve the contract he has with -- -- -- currently is no contract right right exactly he is not the coach of the door on it right now. And theoretically -- coach anywhere he wants and -- right the saints do have the window to negotiate with him before any other team does. Tom blood in particular that right now if they wanted to as far as we know they could be talking right exactly but nothing has been done yet like you said as for him leaving. I would really highly doubt it just because there's no way in my mind that -- shall patent can leave the team the way things went down to what. What they're greater odds the saints making a super ball. Or -- not coming back. I both are extremely slant right yes. The greater odds I would say of -- of -- -- not coming back. But it slightly. Just like it you think he's back out for your network now it's safe I'd put that nine 95% shortage coming. 9959. Point 99. You never know it's -- -- I gotta leave that up because Jerry Jones as real -- though could throw it on a boatload of money right Steve American fifteen minutes or sports on WW. -- minutes in front 6 AM the early edition of WWL first news in a moment I'll share some folks this now to -- that homeland love that about to those again and but first your forecast with that.
