As Brothers grow up to both become NFL coaches and then faceoff in the Super Bowl. That would be neat stuff by things that again Baltimore and San Francisco says non those that it be nice to see our Bob ball hardball balls as another. On doses falcons are the notre dame of the NFL they win lucky every week well let's hope the same thing happens to damage -- next week or.

Anybody but Atlanta so we'll share more of your thoughts at 8787 he would take all the T six 1870. Who would you like to see in those Super Bowl in New Orleans. Coming up in just a few weeks and it's close in an awfully quickly a teacher forecast now from the at Wednesday's forecast. Cloudy skies for this Monday and rain likely as 60% chance for showers maybe few heavier spots of rain north and west of the lake. -- it's at 58 and lows tonight 48 still with some showers.

And a yucky conditions again this morning one Texas activate them and it's -- that can't root for any of the teams collapse. Lacking gold bloody Tuesday. Even walk while you like this not even watching. That message goes on -- 2013 -- Who'd had. Leo -- back with -- more after that including. The head of the NRA says congress will not pass an assault weapons band and Gallup -- also congress' approval rating is it.

Any assault weapons ban my do you expect that to go through or not. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this is just right is it early January. 14. 2013. Almost afterward through the monster is on my paper here but it doesn't feel like two weeks in the new year -- I'll tell you what it does feel like Mon day. Hanky yen especially if you're driving at 55 right now at each -- over -- the whole -- -- and all the way on up to. State lines showers so there -- places didn't some light rain -- this kind of another three yucky yucky day. Well find out how long this round of rain will last and if we ever see this on again commitment to -- -- -- -- it. I'm not direct from the Eyewitness News forecast center and be round -- -- New Gallup poll comes right. And it says congress approval at a ridiculously low four -- percent. When asked Americans how do you feel about the performance of the US congress only fourteen are being planned vote the only they've done. Even remotely content. I would think that would get you fired in most places well it would but here's the problem. It doesn't matter what the American people think of the congress as a whole because they only get to vote on their home. Member of congress -- hop and their own two US senators and generally people like. There alone. Representative. -- they've been caught up in the match that congress' album merry go Andrew we saw her numbers -- very nice present greatly popular in the Louisiana despite being a Democrat despite. Date low approval ratings overall war lawmakers on Capitol Hill yet she does really well similarly Steve's goalies in his -- yeah. Ridiculously popular no one even you know with a chance to beat him ever run against them in it's. So it took me just kind of stupid because as a whole we hate how we -- Holler are but no losers they can't do anything right spend money like -- and auto market and it debt it's deeper than anyone can ever get out of it and alive and taken us off the fiscal Klansmen and saving and at the last second and whatnot are decisions and and it gets a reason to complain about congress they count. Only 14% even approve of anything they're doing really Smart modular Kabila president to have those kind of ratings -- while the difference there is we all vote for president. Think people like their -- congress members but they -- like congress which it is. That that the box office of the weekend damn what happened you were right. -- -- -- zero dark thirty would come on now what it on the done.

This weekend last weekend's number one Texas chainsaw 3-D -- the number nine carrier you know so it -- Lil. You know a flash in the and now at number one for one weekend and now known today more than paid the bills -- -- you know it's a not a not exactly a high budget affair. Pretty honesty in the it will. Los Avon really got four teams left so there's no doubt Baltimore. -- -- -- -- -- -- Forty niners and has -- I don't know a San Francisco where one might talk to them what. Sampras and I glittering as losers -- and knows yards so you're choices in the NFC -- 49ers in the out exactly. 31 camera I want the 49ers obviously regional falcons here and we don't really -- I don't think New Orleans fans -- the air either team in the AFC got the patriots and yet the race.

A consistent rain all day in fact it's probably be just mostly cloudy with -- patches of drizzle. Throughout today but it still could be kind of cold the streets in the ground of course super wet from all the rain we've had so. It's just not going to be it nicest of days but it's not going to be steady rain all day. All right in the rest of the week when the temperatures during while we still see all the way through things I. How did chilly overnight lows in the forties and highs in the fifties solidly through Thursdays -- a big change in temperature just because the clouds and the rain will keep them and it's steady LLC it is often on showers all -- through Thursday before upfront finally kicks through.

Have to root for the falcons another one says of the falcons do make it to the Super Bowl on New Orleans we should return the egg attack lot and often advocated that -- get to knock him out of trouble folks now.

Point seven points as the knicks knocked off the world runs 10287. Took money -- says the defense was not very good yesterday. So that was started way before. The second quarter slide -- scored twelve points. Just in play with a sense of urgency. Up next for the hornets is the Philadelphia 76ers tomorrow night on the road in the road to new worlds forcible 47 has been whittled down to fourteen the Atlanta Falcons will host. The San Francisco 49ers in next week's NFC title game after surviving. A furious second half comeback from the Seattle Seahawks. Yeah it was about 848. Yard field goal it's. One. For the second year road will be Baltimore and New England in the AFC championship game after the patriots and Tom Brady beat up on Houston. Patriots look -- add to their -- Little football.

Three TD passes for Tom Brady in the win in the wind came with a price tight end Rob Gronkowski fractured his forearm in the game and is done for the post season the Philadelphia Eagles have interviewed. Former ravens coach and current fox analyst Brian Billick for their coaching vacancy according to a source with the associated press and the LSU tiger baseball team. Begins individual workouts today the fourth ranked by -- bagels are searching for placed on the pitching staff for Kevin -- who's now the pro baseball football and Jerry says. Ryan needs is that guy. To be a first round draft situation and hopefully he's gonna win twelve or fourteen games horses break.

I'm Kristian garic that is early in the sports fans tough second quarter for the -- Yeah Carmelo. Went off to yeah Carmelo Anthony scored eighteen points in the second quarter eighteen of 27 and second quarter hornets scored twelve points the court to which he outscored the entire hornets team. In the second quarter and that was and they it was different in the end they won they had four wins in a row they've been playing great ball. And at least it wasn't in the fourth quarter and it's all parts of his second quarters today include my -- a -- The senate after the game we we thought saying I'm quoting -- and we felt we could just show up. Winning four games he warned last week that they can't let this winning streak that they've been anonymous really good run that they've been gone. -- -- And perhaps or conceded it was Ortiz -- -- yet yet now apparently maybe they did -- -- little too confident thinking that they were really good now we just you know to show up and win. Any -- the nose in the -- grinds to write to you told us half an hour ago who you would like to see play. In the super ball. Again who would like to see in the Super -- San -- in new England and who do you think will be in the soup do you think your dreams and wishes will country in -- have Cisco in the and it's not going to be the Brothers are off now. Sure the falcons are gonna lose yes the time but this business Mac that's not your heart speaking to us on our mind -- out of that I felt like Seattle in the -- I just think that Angela yet and I didn't like the niners the best team that is. Man. -- He somehow that he really -- the eighties. He can throw the ball a mile. The -- golf Enron and -- France and he half. And that was his first ever playoff games than any set records for the most rushing yards by a quarterback ever and an NFL game. Ever for Michael Vick never ran that much in any game ever. You're making my point you make in my case -- -- I think it affected about fifteen minutes. Sports here that we -- -- well AM at them and -- now I'd do you think he's right is that how it's gonna end up. Where every text messages coming up here on WW well I am. 5:54. On your Monday morning thanks for joining us on the early edition of WW golfers -- -- Trichet has sent a variances interesting text messages message to us he says the saints and the colts are going to be in the Super Bowl this year at least in his house. He says I've got the best Super Bowl and it's going to be New Orleans. Taking on Peyton Manning and the colts on the game comes on I'll put in the dvd. And watch that -- to bowl Sunday is a little too far perhaps you know I get it I know your allegiance to the saints I understand you feel about everything that happened this season I'm getting a lot of text messages angry still that Roger Goodell. But. Nightly and watch the Super Bowl here at that here in New Orleans because of that angry. Forecast if you don't like grant him -- immaculate. For your Monday mostly cloudy and a 60% chance for showers maybe few spots of heavier rain north and west of the lake. High today 58 and lows tonight 48 silly with cloudy skies in a 40% rain chance. Tuesday at 50% chance for showers with a high of sixty and Wednesday at 50% chance for rain and highs of 54. For -- Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist larva. Tell heaviest rain now is on the North Shore go on from my 55 I intend to -- -- on into northern saint Tammany and Washington parish other light rain around here -- there right now it's fifty degrees under cloudy skies at the international airport in Canada we have a north wind and miles an -- also fifty degrees and cloudy and slide out the National Weather Service office. But the northeast wind at nine miles an -- little fog reported here there but no ridiculously low visibility. Otherwise it's just kind of misty. And yucky on this Monday morning's big week for gun control efforts it's one month after the new school massacre. But the head of the NRA says his group has enough support to block an assault weapons fans are you confident. If you don't want an assault weapons -- that it will fail or if you want one do you think that congress. Will approve it based on everything that's happened whether Newton Newton school massacre as a movie theater massacre. And the big gun violence do you think that the political will there is -- now and the ban assault weapons. Going to be a debate insisting expect that might really doing it in March. All right coming up for the next par is a fun here at WWL. More of me I could go on for Tommy Tucker this morning so hopefully that makes him happy will be talking about the latest school shooting. The kids taken a shot gun to school there that armed guard there. Then how does that -- victory. Factoring into the debate. What about video game violence you think that has anything to do -- -- thought about that. Loss talk about the controversy in mid city where some residents complain Metairie is coming to New Orleans. And that just a couple of topics we'll talk about for the next four hours -- -- -- -- -- earlier that he should root for the team in your division right now and others is only one problem. If Atlanta makes it to the Super Bowl they'll lose did you know they can't win in the superdome and Roosevelt a big saints -- and -- like the falcons to win but. Somewhere else those as we always root for the SEC should we stick together and written for the NFC south those of us forget the division crap. It means the falcons' war we had. Back yes.
