Nine minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL prisoners on this December 31. 2002. Wow -- last Monday of this year rats that had been. There are way pardon me -- Now happy -- in this country we say happy. Pride and not. Not -- knew the enormous in this country we say happy. Clear out of that right thank you lord. Places that yet here and it it's -- is she now doesn't it well the last day. At 2012. As we get ready to launch off. In 2000 and their team now remain amazed that an entire year has gone by in the blink of nine yes it and has restarted talking about this months ago again. Suddenly boom it's here by the rights act of my goodness how we already airway anyway -- -- incumbent. Christmas is here in January. The years the he now and now as far as the saints -- or right on the -- apparently were -- we have elegant off like oh right on the you know on the -- we've never been on again off of the guys know right on the yet we. That's well when no longer on the cusp of being the worst defense ever in the history -- -- now -- no defense -- ever allowed more yards. Then Norman Maine in this year and here's the thing that happened yesterday. The defense that well. Among them is the worst ever let's protect that record. Pete sell off -- back at about so many yards. That -- it will ever be able to be worse than we were here and we will go down in the angels of their history books and yeah in this -- in the award of the history books. As the worst defense ever record that I think this isn't the event will be able to hold for a long long time -- you think back to teams like the colts that went one in fifteen. You think they must have been worse the offensively than the saints and the no no that's how good our offense has been in terms of getting points because. We were still underway in seven games. Despite having the worst defense Aaron bird even worse. Even -- mean teams that were over all wars I give up that many aren't you know are back in the bag years and stuff when things just you know awful argument more yards then no news this defense. Opt for smaller must be some kind of trophy Euro -- matters something I don't get it trophy and it's one I've in my DR -- you thought that in Serbia pretty drove me. Let's take solace let's enjoy the fact -- -- -- -- that that reporter Christian gear reported on Friday. Singh and John Payton have come to terms -- new contract. All that matters now that has happened now the -- -- the how long that'll take long it took last. It looks very good. Like Sean Payton will be back. Some -- leaders -- pry them bank may they may even you can -- back this week. But when it -- contract we don't know. We do you know pressure is looking good on Peyton will be the. To expect it to. Thirteen and the sooner the better that's already some of them makes the new year -- good as it does and I don't think. Coach break and wolf forget these kind of defense and performances. And if he'd be -- I got a lot. -- these pages third 2013 I just had a pretty good for saints fans because coach John Payton comes back. So the New Year's already looking better -- -- a long year rant at a 2012 and go by and a blanket the eyes are on -- It was tough. Andrew Rubin thank you David all right Ebenezer Yasser. I'm -- -- we'll get to it that kind of workers injected him with -- sports next take your forecast for today. Your holiday tonight to usher in the new year. And tomorrow for the first day of 2013. That's coming up after this on WW out having -- here. Size 16:9. Here from Monday morning that is a great -- baby 'cause its new years neat. Happy new air times they've outlined in his in his presidency after. Yet we say happy new year. No we don't think that at. And happy and thank you Eddie -- I. Indeed happy new year Mary near whatever new here you wanted to be I hope you and yours and fantastic news Steve please be safe out there today. And be careful I do enjoy yourselves and usher in the new year in grand fashion how -- you may choose to do it of course if you wanna do it. With us here on WWL we will be counting you down to midnight. And playing the music to accompany the fireworks over the Mississippi River on WWL am FM and dot com and on our sister station magic 101 point nine and heading down into the riverfront. Bring your radio with yet. And we'll help you usher in the news year what's the weather going to be like as we do that well let's ask. Mr. meteorologist. Laura but now cloudy skies today at 20% chance for light shower. Ice cool at 64 -- New Year's -- tonight cloudy skies that few spots -- deal of patchy fog. Although the rain chance that 30% bit tight tense right about sixty and tomorrow the rain moves and scattered showers throughout the day at 70% chance. Heights at seventy and rain again on Wednesday but chilly highs only 53. From the Eyewitness News forecast that our meteorologist Clark talked. Now at wouldn't be New -- in New Orleans if there weren't at least the chance of dog right now it's cloudy no -- reporters at the airport 48 degrees in northeast wind eight to fifteen miles an hour cloudy and 43 at the National Weather Service up with. In slide now line gave -- the early edition of WWL prisoners. I'm open up the phone my entities six 1870 or to all 386688970. And it detects -- 87870. Do you expect the New Orleans Saints. QB good next year rate next year bad next year were awful next year what do you expect in 2013. But the New Orleans Saints what will the new year bring now this season mercifully has come to a man it's sports time now on WW outlook it. Saints at nine reporter Chris suspect that's coming up. But right now we got a lot of just tell -- saw about what happened yesterday get us ready for today have all the morning. Happy new year -- -- -- -- before they Drew Brees made more NFL history but so did the saints. And the defense and undesirable way in the Carolina Panthers rallied to a 44 to 38 victory yesterday in the superdome -- offense side DeAngelo Williams. She's got some running room again inside the 35302518. -- touched down DeAngelo Williams. -- to use that Elvis say it's. Williams rushed for 210 yards including touchdown -- the 54 and twelve yards for Carolina which. Has won four straight to -- includes two bit finished the season at seven and nine. Pretty disappointing. Very disappointing. True there's no way to sugarcoat this the Washington Redskins are in the playoffs the champions of the NFC east for the first time since 1999. Maybe -- cowboys got the final -- -- -- -- the top seed Indiana see the Atlanta Falcons and fortunately the AFC the Broncos locking down the top spot they've won eleven in a row black Monday the NFL today as teams. Look making coaching changes the Eagles already parting ways with Andy Reid -- football team looks to close -- the point twelve regular season -- -- victory. Over Clemson in the -- label. Excuse me -- to tackle Josh towards it says conference pride will be on line in Clinton -- coming from the ACC. And for -- is the same thing you know we we wanna represent our our conference who wanna represented. You know our team -- his best possible we're trying to play our best game in this last two in if there's a sea change going on -- I -- that the game would be nice. The action starts tonight at 630 right here. On WB well tiger -- getting starts at 1 o'clock we'll Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia followed by LSU and Clinton at 630 on Kristian -- and manager Lou -- its -- It's -- minutes after 5 AM the early edition of WWL first news Eric Harris and the fact that. Are you -- -- the saints season is finally over that we can and can't say goodbye. To the 2012 saints and look forward to the 2013 addition. Honestly I mean just by an error by by having so much that defense for this many weeks worst defense ever in the history of the and a half now and -- -- David I'm not -- -- me that. I think the reason they gave up so many artists -- 500 in -- When he -- I think it was whatever was ailing eighty give up point 3287. To be the worst ever well obviously they just want him. Cement that record in the annals of history and then. Purpose the annals of history. Because that's what they give up so many yards if they'd only given up 400 someone could come back in and take this record from. Yeah now they give up over 500 yards yesterday it looked at the records can be saved for a long long time and well I think that was some other goal. Mean with this front yet it tongue in cheek but that look the deal is that. When you can't. I mean it's one thing to give up to have a bad game. You know OK fine maybe EU wanted to I offense. And just like jump for 500 yards but -- unified over 500 yards of offense in four games this year. Yet for game that that's 2000 yards and yes for right that's a lot here it's in. And I heard early -- Miami and the patients who was there I think because I -- scheme. Facing two unconventional offenses and quarterbacks and -- Korea and its values within. After -- that live in the they can't tackle then have a difference maker so that's not necessarily scheme our issues that -- So let's forget about it we we we've we've cemented that in place we understand what happened let's look ahead. As you reported Friday breaking the story that Sean Payton and on saints have in principle come to an agreement on a contract. Now all the day's news is the approval when do you think Sean -- -- go to walk back through the doors. At the saints' headquarters and start working on next. I think it'll be before -- a -- I anticipate that he'll be reinstated. Before then about a commissioner of course and you know that the contract has to get approved to set her on stuff but I wouldn't be surprised if it's if it's within. The next two weeks that he gets reinstated. And that makes you feel yeah and they get created in the draft coming up. And you elected ago mostly defense in the other fifteen million dollars over the projected salary cap right now. -- them. Some salaries somewhere to make up room some people company and it can't have that -- will talk about that. You'll have plenty of time for that are right. And when I get you back in Myanmar reports about 25 minutes knowing your prediction for the -- -- the -- -- are right for -- human climbs and by the way you're right you said that the fans are gonna lose this one that was your prediction. Friday let's. And it's just I think so hunting into the center those sort of -- if I remember correctly again and you're right they lost was about four. Sets him as -- You said they would lose and at least well I guess themselves and pretty have very happy new year tucked in equipment and sports now like alive and -- it matters. It's a good morning to WW Al dot com LSU columnist Jeff Palermo edited Jeff. They gave let's talk about the total moron. Don't let -- -- about a team that is in the post season albeit not a BCS bowl albeit not a national championship. But yet a very good matchup for the LSU tigers against the Clemson Tigers in the check the label that. Yeah I hope that is a good game you know -- you -- on and that is chick filet bowl and it's absolutely. Violated the team that they played in the last couple times they've gone but. Hopefully content put up a little bit of the five but I'd still like elected -- -- -- game by. Tent that fourteen points they do have mortality especially on the defensive side of the football of course the key -- -- It's analysts viewed -- going up against the high powered Clinton office. Yeah I mean that it that's the thing everyone's looking to see is can the this clemson's offense can't produce against an SEC powerhouse defense in the LSU tigers I know that. You know we've got your five things to watch for posted at WWL that come -- predicting a 2717. LSU victory so you're not expecting great things out of the Clemson offense aria. No technology available to keep -- -- check I think the time. Definitely helped sell it to you as it has in previous bowl game under coach one mile. That was beat up defense toward the end of the he's -- -- And in addition. Linebacker and ties to yield back out there who's been out. All of these in because of academic issues. So they get him out there I think you'd you'd have some guys some of those young DP -- some extra practice time get to more Connecticut judge -- one of the best defensive coordinators. And able to match up get ready for this team. The defensive line which really slowed down towards the end of -- -- that they can have a big game. Last -- -- for -- that they did not have a good outing against South Carolina infected they've been -- at four and expect the bank David. Quarterback Todd Boyd for -- penalty group 483. Yards LSU and the game plan and the stop guys like Taj -- they did it with. Johnny -- I've been whether Pakistan October. Born and I let -- go down and answered. So Iowa and they they did a good job a year ago and slow -- -- and so they know what to do when it comes the trying to slow down the spread offenses. Then have all these big time play makers they've done in the past that think they can keep the content -- and checked. -- -- you like the LSU tigers in the chick filet bowl today -- kickoff is at 6 o'clock will be ready for that here on WWL IMF and and back on 630 tech that will it kick off at 630. And very quickly you and I'll talk much more in depth about the LSU tigers coming up at 10 o'clock this morning when we're back with the 2012 year in review. But in general you're feeling good about the 2013. LSU tigers aren't. You are paying -- -- Ellis to -- but it will be it will be one of the LSU offensive they've had a long time now there are some guys they're gonna have to replace defense. -- Some of the juniors like care REIT that Montgomery -- -- it's me -- maybe they haven't -- certainly. But you know there a -- you know it that it could be -- remote -- But back here I think people could be really about that -- -- company back these wide receivers coming back. -- ballot often applied to the back is still go look great running back they have applaud the bill next here's. Should be very good from the first game like what it. I'd Jeff thank you so much prior contributions have a very happy new year in 2013. That's -- the tigers than 2000 well. I think it now for beat tiger nation and the LSU fans go tigers thanks Jeff. I read more from -- WWL dot com buy things to watch for and I'll also go ahead and listen at 10 o'clock this morning. Well spent about fifteen minutes going in -- looking back at 2012. LSU tigers season here on WW. Out. Five point nine that's your forecast. This last may of 2012. Increasing clouds and a cool afternoon 64 today. With a 20% chance for light shower thing cloudy tonight at these spots made it decent patchy fog at 30% rain chance for this New Year's Eve. And midnight Temps right around sixty degrees and cloudy skies tomorrow. And rain on the way looking likely throughout today heights at seventy rain likely again Wednesday but much cooler highs of 53. For the Eyewitness News forecast that our meteorologist Clark -- -- look at like we don't we won't have any rain to deal with as we usher in the new year but maybe a passing shower here or there it's a few of the unlucky ones might get a little -- bringing in 2013. But. By and large other than may be a little plug in a little reining in their looks -- great weather at midnight tonight. When your on the riverfront -- enough on the porch at one of the hotels that one of the casinos wherever you are ushering in 2013. Make it safe happy and healthy 48 right now and cloudy the international airport 43 and cloudy.

Actually time speeds up as we giggled yes and I'm -- young I'm more quickly talking about code.

And applies to everyone who -- this year. Every morning or even wants a while on the early edition of Debbie WL first news out even might that apply to Kristian -- will be up next with sports here on WW well like him a hard time back. I guess he may 2012 a little bit better than what it. The. I. Irene solvency they're just -- pointed and -- more. And for those of you listen regularly to the early edition of Debbie WL first news you know we always try to bring a smile and -- and when things we do for on his Christian -- can poke fun at one another and have on at one another's expense but you know what we both smiled through it now let's do that analysis. Happy about that I know it's -- -- -- thing that. God awful performance of the saints yesterday to help we will be smiling when the day's over in the LSU tigers hope we win that labeled preview them -- the label to recap. That saints game and much more happy existence. Ran over around and through the saints yesterday in the regular season finale in the superdome. Carolina with 4438. Over New Orleans coach Joseph bit after the game in which. Went back DeAngelo Williams rushed for 210 yards and two scores it's not acceptable. Who -- fixed now. Start with this -- about. For the saints they're done no post season and for the first time since 2007. And finished below 500 RG three in the Washington Redskins are headed to the playoffs and NFC east division champions. RG three under simply. Fact Boris journalism -- -- with the Morris looking for. -- One thing. The skins beat the cowboys twenty to eighteen wrap of the division and final playoff spot in the conference black and gold are shooting black Monday in the NFL. Today as teams look to make some coaching changes the Eagles already. Getting rid of Andy Reid it's LSU and Clinton tonight in a chick filet bowl from Atlanta on the LSU tiger fan base is not overly excited about tonight's game. But coach less miles as as players are fired up the opportunity of playing very very. Talent is capable Clemson in the back in the decision in my opinion. Is every motivation. That that will need to play well talented and capable of course would be less miles sound by without without those words. Tiger -- games start at 1 o'clock we'll Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia followed by LSU. And Clinton at 630 right here on -- -- him develop Kristian -- that if you're really look at. -- I was about to thank you for that because you need and 2012 with talented -- capable or -- coach capable man last month health that was perfect. See you party help me although it's not 2013 yet smile laugh a little more because that's miles makes me smile laugh when he says but it -- capable. You know why that -- -- you know I have a little game that went right at the transcripts from his speeches his post game commentary and I. Find all the talented and capable -- -- when he says warranty doesn't vote that counted. But more than capable than it used to -- in the Iran and -- -- he's just a sticky alive today like they -- Modesto who is more talented and capable is at the LSU tigers or is it the clintons and it's the LSU tigers are operating -- tiger -- we know that night isn't LSU tiger -- content and LSU -- LSU by eight -- -- -- -- to expect it to be larger margin of victory for -- tigers. That'll be exciting and on that we get that -- -- -- -- -- -- as you football to help us countdown to midnight is like forever since they've played it's been forever but not as long as it should have been and we prefer they'd be playing next month is that of this month. Next year instead of this year I'd rather wait another week for the tigers the play -- it. It wasn't. Meant to be its habitat and do another tenant two season when you look at it that's very impressive for less miles and the architect of the 10-Q once again. I mean he is criticized less miles dozen times for. Now winning enough champions. SEC championships our national -- -- Seven years in a row they they could possibly finished with eleven wins tonight's -- and -- seven years and -- -- -- yet seven of his seasons. As in Baton Rouge a loved ones are more than a lot of Orleans and -- think before he got there. Before he got there at that wasn't happening even under the great save him lawman -- -- -- just long column re launched -- he better program. Yeah he was haven't started. Restart a program was very bad -- dinars but less miles really has. -- whatever you think of him as a as a person when everything -- them as an orator with a whatever you think of him as a play caller o'clock manager and all that to win ten or eleven. Games. Seven seasons and you know it. SEC and Dave. That didn't just happen with you know that argument at first there was always go to with the -- Players well okay no he's not and I want them their longs is out there in LA that but you don't just look up and win eleven games. And it -- the -- and this individual -- in this conference -- -- you've got to have some ability as a coach and less miles clearly does as a coach as a as things. We're. Happy New Yorkers India and go to the tigers -- indeed thank you and him both believe win tonight the LSU tigers that. Over the Clemson Tigers in the political pick up at 630 right here on them well and ask them. We know albeit all Manning's Super -- -- -- because Eli is out.
